I need you to promise me something, Gwen. Promise me you'll look out for Nicole. She needs her mother. I worry for her. You take care of her.

Joan

Gwen: We have the opportunity to do something incredible. Together.
Bobby: Annie! You're still late. [to Gwen] Still behind. Hey, I'd love you to stay for the finale. Get your eyes on it.

Gwen: Lousy dancer or bad lay? Oh no, both.
Bobby: She doesn't know how to take direction.

It's bad enough I have to coddle Neil, please don't make me coddle you, too. I'm not a child, Gwen. I know I'm never going home.

Joan

Bobby, I know I haven't been dancing my best. But I know I can do better. I can do better. [silence from Bobby] Can I ... buy you a drink?

Sherry

Bobby: It's a long way. It's a long way down.
Paddy: You can't say you don't deserve it.
Gwen: Oh Bobby. You're so special. Nobody else can do what you can do. Nobody even comes close. It's time people see how extraordinary you are.
Pippin Cast: When you're extraordinary, you gotta do extra ordinary things.
Gwen: The ones who die young, those are the ones who live forever. You know that. You made me a star. But if you do this, you'll eclipse me. You'll eclipse everyone.

Paddy: Bobby, reviews like these, you got a blank check. Anything you want to do from now on, Broadway, Hollywood -- total freedom.
Bobby: It's incredible.
Paddy: It's incredible.

We're gonna take whatever's here and we're gonna blow it all up. I think it's gonna be a lot of fun.

Bobby

Bobby: I have a lot of job offers after this. I'm not sure that's what I'm going to want to do.
Gwen: That's what I want to do.

Bobby: I was doing you a favor.
Gwen: A favor! A favor. That's what you think this is?
Bobby. Yeah.
Gwen: Don't worry. I won't ask you for any more favors.
Bobby: Are you out of your mind? It's Paddy!

Gwen: What in the HELL were you thinking?!
Bobby: What are you talking about?
Gwen: You left her alone with a grown man!
Bobby: Nicole? I left her with Paddy.
Gwen: It's completely inappropriate!
Bobby: What are you talkin' about? I left her for 30 minutes.
Gwen: You can't spend a single evening alone with your daughter. That was just too much to ask!

Gwen: So I have to admit, Joe, I am struggling to find out what that moment means for the character, so if you could just tell me EXACTLY what you want me to do.
Joe: Some choreography?
[there is laughter]
Gwen: Got me. [chuckles]

Fosse/Verdon Quotes

"Sweet Charity is a movie haunted by the presence of an unseen star -- Gwen Verdon. Although Ms. McClaine often looks like Ms. Verdon, she never succeeds in recreating the eccentric line that gave cohesion to the original."

Bob

I knew it wasn't going to be any good.
