Funny Quotes from The Artist

[after watching a sound test]
Al Zimmer: Don't laugh, George. That's the future!
George: If that's the future, you can have it!

Al Zimmer: You and I belong to another era, George. The world is talking now. People want new faces, talking faces. I wish it wasn't like this, but the public wants fresh meat and the public is never wrong.
George: I'm the one people come to see. They never needed to hear me! Make your talking movies. I'll make a great movie. And it's not like I need you for that!
[George picks up a paper with the new actors listed and sees Peppy Miller]
George: Fresh meat...
[George storms out.]

Peppy Miller: What a coincidence, I was just thinking about you. I signed with Kinograph! Maybe now we'll do another picture together!

Doris: We have to talk, George. Why do you refuse to talk? I'm unhappy, George.
George: So are millions of us.

George: And you want a refund?
[Peppy shakes her head.]
George: Not too much mugging?
Peppy Miller: No. I... I'm sorry about last night. I didn't mean what I said...
