Never have truer words been spoken!

One of my favorite movies is “An Ideal Husband.” It’s so witty and there are some classic quotable lines in it. I could watch this move over and over and still find something new. Some of my favorites are:

Lord Arthur Goring: To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.

Countess: Aren't you going to congratulate me?
Lord Arthur Goring: Congratulations.
Countess: Aren't you going to ask what for?
Lord Arthur Goring: What for?
Countess: I've made a great decision. I've decided to get married.
Lord Arthur Goring: My God! Who to?
Countess: That part is yet to be decided.

Lord Arthur Goring: I'm sorry, Father, but the truth is, this is not my day for talking seriously.
Lord Caversham: Well, what do you mean, sir?
Lord Arthur Goring: I mean that I only talk seriously on the first Tuesday of every month. Between noon and three.

My Favorite!

Lord Arthur Goring: I am glad you have called. I am going to give you some advice.
Laura: Oh pray, don't. One should never give a woman something that she can't wear in the evening.

I love this movie! There are many more, but I can’t put the whole script up. Rupert Everett, I want to marry you!
