The Wicker Man Quotes

Russell Waters as Harbor Master

  • (Russell Waters) "Much has been said of the strumpets of yore / Of wenches and bawdy house queens by the score / But I sing of a baggage that we all adore / The landlord's daughter."

Christopher Lee as Lord Summerisle

  • (Christopher Lee) "I think I could turn and live with animals. They are so placid and self-contained. They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins. They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God. Not one of them kneels to another or to his own kind that lived thousands of years ago. Not one of them is respectable or unhappy, all over the earth."
  • (Christopher Lee) "Animals are fine, but their acceptability is limited. A little child is even better, but not nearly as effective as the right kind of adult."
  • (Sergeant Howie) "What religion can they possibly be learning jumping over bonfires?"
  • (Christopher Lee) "Parthenogenesis."

  • (Christopher Lee) "He's dead. Can't complain, had his chance and in modern parlance, blew it."
  • (Christopher Lee) "Good afternoon, Sergeant Howie. I trust the sight of the young people refreshes you."
  • (Sergeant Howie) "No sir, it does NOT refresh me."
  • (Christopher Lee) "Cut some capers, man. Use your bladder."
  • (Sergeant Howie) "Your lordship seems strangely -- unconcerned."
  • (Christopher Lee) "Well I'm confident your suspicions are wrong, Sergeant. We don't commit murder here. We're a deeply religious people."
  • (Sergeant Howie) "Religious? With ruined churches, no ministers, no priests -- and children dancing naked."
  • (Christopher Lee) "They do love their divinity lessons."
  • (Sergeant Howie) "But they are -- are naked."
  • (Christopher Lee) "Naturally. It's much too dangerous to jump through the fire with your clothes on."
