Funny Quotations from Sabrina

Sabrina is a romantic comedy-drama film about a young daughter of a family's chauffeur that gets courted by a pair of brothers. The film follows the life of Sabrina Fairchild, the daughter of the Larrabee family's chauffeur. Directed by Billy Wilder. Starring Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn, and William Holden. Based on the play "Sabrina Fair" by Samuel A. Taylor.

Sabrina won the Oscar award for Best Costume Design, Black-and-White and was nominated for five other Oscars, including Best Director. Originally, Cary Grant was going to play Bogart's part, but he declined the role. The film was later remade with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond taking the parts of Bogart and Hepburn. Read on for some quotes from Sabrina.


Linus Larrabee: After all, this is the 20th century, Father.
Oliver Larrabee: Twentieth century? Why, I could pick a century out of a hat, blindfolded, and come up with a better one.
Oliver Larrabee: There must be a less expensive way of getting a chauffeur's daughter out of one's hair.
Linus Larrabee: How would you do it? You can't even get a little olive out of a jar!
Thomas Fairchild: He's still David Larrabee, and you're still the chauffeur's daughter. And you're still reaching for the moon.
Sabrina Fairchild: No, father. The moon is reaching for me.
David Larrabee: There's just one thing you overlooked. I haven't proposed and she hasn't accepted.
Linus Larrabee: Oh don't worry. I proposed and Mr.Tyson accepted.
David Larrabee: Did you kiss him?
Baron St. Fontanel: A woman happily in love, she burns the souffle. A woman unhappily in love, she forgets to turn on the oven.
Oliver Larrabee: All columnists should be beaten to a pulp and converted back into paper!
David Larrabee: You don't live here!
Sabrina: Yes, I do.
David Larrabee: I live here!
Sabrina: Hi, neighbor.
David Larrabee: I thought you two had eloped! I wouldn't mind, but not in my car.
Linus Larrabee: Look at me. Joe College, with a touch of arthritis.
Thomas Fairchild: Democracy can be a wickedly unfair thing Sabrina. Nobody poor was ever called democratic for marrying somebody rich.
