The Time of Their Lives (1946) best movie quotes
Mildred Dean: [to Emily] Pardon me, but did I see you in “Rebecca?”
Horatio Prim: [he and Melody collide and are wearing each other’s clothes] Odds bodkins, we’re all mixed up!
[they run into each other again and get back into their own clothes]
Horatio Prim: Melody, don’t ever do that again, I’m a boy!
Horatio Prim: [after seeing Emily for the first time] Zounds! What well did she come out of?
Melody Allen: Here’s a horse pistol.
[Gives him the gun. Horatio turns to the horse behind him]
Horatio Prim: Here, this is for you. Now, what do I shoot with?
Mildred Dean: [to June about Dr. Greenway] Last week he said that the rash I had wasn’t an allergy, it was a guilt complex because I kicked your grandma in the bustle when I was 2 years old.
Sheldon Gage: Come on Ralph, now tell us what happened.
Cuthbert Greenway: Bottles floating through space, glasses filling up by themselves, and somebody tooted into my stethoscope!

Horatio Prim: Be patient? Melody, do you realize that my Nora has been waiting on me for 165 years? And a girl will only wait so long, and no longer!
Melody Allen: [turning on the house’s electric lights] What an astonishing idea… probably got it from Ben Franklin, he’s always inventing things.
Emily: [in a trance and speaking with the voice of Thomas Danbury] Melody, my beloved, it’s Tom. I’ve come to help you.
June Prescott: Oh, Shelly, what does it mean?
Sheldon Gage: It-it must be Danbury speaking through Emily.
Mildred Dean: Oh, fine. A ghost to ghost broadcast.
Horatio Prim: Cuthbert, Melody, it’s Cuthbert! He’s still alive!
Melody Allen: How can that be?
Horatio Prim: I don’t know, they say only the good die young.
Melody Allen: You know no self-respecting ghosts do any haunting before midnight.
Horatio Prim: Alright, I’ll wait. But tonight, I haunt!
Horatio Prim: I don’t want those people coming around here saying,
Horatio Prim: Here lie the dirty traitors! Here lie the dirty traitors!
Horatio Prim: Here lie the dirty traitors.
Melody Allen: [picks up a book] Tom Danbury’s memoirs.
Horatio Prim: His grandmas?
Horatio Prim: Odds, bodkins, and copper pots!
