Funny Quotations from White Christmas

White Christmas is a romantic comedy musical film about a song-and-dance team that teams up with a failing Vermont inn to help bring customers. The movie is one of my favorite films for the holidays. Bing Crosby does an excellent job with his part, and of course, his famous song. Directed by Michael Curtiz. Starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney.

White Christmas was nominated for the Oscar Best Music, Original Song. The film is noted for being the first to be printed in VistaVision. It was a huge success at the box office and is seen almost yearly around the world. The movie has since been adapted into stage musicals. The following are some great and humorous quotes from White Christmas.


[to the Haynes sisters]
Phil Davis: Mr. Wallace was just saying how remarkable it was that Benny Haynes' sisters should have eyes...
[voice cracks]
Phil Davis: ...I mean, blue eyes. That is eyes...
Bob Wallace: Nice out.

Phil Davis: How much is "wow"?
Bob Wallace: It's right in between, uh, "ouch" and "boing".
Phil Davis: Wow!
Gen. Thomas F. Waverly: There's no Christmas in the Army!
Phil Davis: [after performing "Sisters"] Hey, we're a smash let's take a bow!
Bob Wallace: We'll take a bow down to the jail house!
Judy Haynes: [about Betty] Yesterday, she couldn't sleep. Today, she won't eat. She's in love.
Phil Davis: Well if that's love, somebody goofed.
Phil Davis: I want you to get married. I want you to have nine children. And if you only spend five minutes a day with each kid, that's forty-five minutes, and I'd at least have time to go out and get a massage or something.
Bob Wallace: We ate, and then he ate. We slept and then he slept.
Phil Davis: Yeah, then he woke up and nobody slept for forty-eight hours.
Emma Allen: [Regarding the inn] This place used to be a grist mill and a barn. Now it's a Tyrolean haunted house.
[General Waverly has come downstairs for the Christmas Eve show in his uniform]
Gen. Thomas F. Waverly: [to Susan] You didn't expect me to come down in my bathrobe, did you?
