Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman talking in "Spellbound", Metz...


Constance Petersen: I think the greatest harm done the human race has been done by the poets


Anthony Edwardes: Oh, poets are dull boys, most of them, but not especially fiendish.


Constance Petersen: They keep filling people's heads with delusions about love... writing about it as if it were a symphony orchestra or a flight of angels.


Anthony Edwardes: Which it isn't, eh?


Constance Petersen: Of course not. People fall in love, as they put it, because they respond to a certain hair coloring or vocal tones or mannerisms that remind them of their parents.


Anthony Edwardes: Or... or... sometimes for no reason at all


Constance Petersen: That's not the point. The point is that people read about love as one thing and experience it as another. Well, they expect kisses to be like lyrical poems and embraces to be like Shakespearean dramas.


Anthony Edwardes: And when they find out differently, then they get sick and have to be analyzed, eh?


Constance Petersen: Yes, very often.


Anthony Edwardes: Professor, you're suffering from "mogo on the gogo"


Constance Petersen: I beg your pardon!

Here's one by Jimmy:


" Beautiful ? That's an understatement. Can you picture the Painted Desert by moonlight ? With the fragrance of lilacs in a New England garden and a Viennese waltz played by Kreisler in D-Minor? Put that together and what have you got---Nora, that's her name."
