Laughter on American television has taken the place of the chorus in Greek tragedy. In other countries, the business of laughing is left to the viewers. Here, their laughter is put on the screen, integrated into the show. It is the screen that is laughing and having a good time. You are simply left alone with your consternation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I gain my theatrical diversion most delightfully from the frothiest of screen nonsense. A travel subject or cartoon short is frequently my choice on the film bill.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]

I want a screen kiss from Cybill Shepherd! I think she's stunning. She's a great actress. I want to act with her too. She'd be my choice for an ideal valentine too.More [04/24/2006 12:04:00]
I met Penny Marshall. I certainly understood where she was coming from, and she told me she really thought I could be good at it. So the next thing you know, I find myself screen testing for her and auditioning.More [05/26/2006 12:05:00]
Oh, I don't know, ... I don't really know what that game is. I'm looking forward to getting a movie out there that we really loved making and loved working on — a great, real story. There are no special effects, there's no blue screen — it's just heartfelt drama.More [05/26/2006 12:05:00]
“[Rachel McAdams is quietly and cheerfully philosophical when it comes to talking about her impending fame. Now that her recent Wedding Crashers is a bona fide hit, the beautiful actress, back on screen in Wes Craven's Red Eye, says she is happy to take it as it comes.] I suppose there is a little bit of a numbers game played in Hollywood, so of course the success of something like Wedding Crashers helps, but it's not something that you seek out, ... I didn't go into that movie hoping it would make a ton of money, but I did hope that it would hit an audience and people would really enjoy it.”More [10/03/2006 12:10:00]
Oh, sure, I was doing a lot of movies for television, but the big screen was not as easy.More [10/06/2006 12:10:00]
Well, it wasn't a green screen film. We actually had a physical, working ballroom that looked just as good right side up as it did upside down, and so there wasn't the need really to do the imaginative kind of work that you do on a green screen project. So for me, it worked out.More [10/23/2006 12:10:00]

I think it is obvious that people repeat acts that are shown on the television or the screen and I wouldn't want to inspire any violence on anyone.More [11/25/2006 12:11:00]
I think Ang brought a certain amount of humanity to the Hulk that nobody ever expected would come off the screen here.More [12/01/2006 12:12:00]
“It was a challenge for me to play somebody who was so quiet and receding and depressed because she's also on screen all the time, and she has to remain compelling and entertaining. I was really nervous that people were not going to stay with me while I was just staying behind that bloody counter.”More [12/10/2006 12:12:00]

[in an Outdoors Theatre, in 1955]
Young Doc: All you got to do is drive directly toward that screen accelerating up to 88 miles an hour.
Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc. It I go driving straight towards that screen, I'm gonna crash into those Indians.
Young Doc: Marty, you're not thinking fourth dimensionally. You'll soon enough be transferred back into 1885, and those Indians won't even be there.More [02/28/2007 12:02:00]

Brian O'Blivion: The battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena: the Videodrome. The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye. Therefore, the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore, whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore, television is reality, and reality is less than television.More [05/31/2007 12:05:00]

Mitch: Note to self: Sam just looked at the screen.
Sam: No, I didn't! I was just making sure that the reel had...!
Screen Voice #1: Hey! This alien looks just like a hot guy!
Screen Voice #2: You're right. We'd better have sex with him.More [09/13/2007 12:09:00]
Matthew: I was one of the insatiables. The ones you'd always find sitting closest to the screen. Why do we sit so close? Maybe it was because we wanted to receive the images first. When they were still new, still fresh. Before they cleared the hurdles of the rows behind us. Before they'd been relayed back from row to row, spectator to spectator; until worn out, secondhand, the size of a postage stamp, it returned to the projectionist's cabin. Maybe, too, the screen was really a screen. It screened us... from the world.More [09/28/2007 12:09:00]

[On the phone]
Ed Rooney: Are you also aware, Mrs. Bueller, that Ferris does not have what we consider to be an exemplary attendance record?
Katie Bueller: I don't understand.
Ed Rooney: He has missed an unacceptable number of school days. In the opinion of this educator, Ferris is not taking his academic growth seriously. Now I've spent my morning examining his records. If Ferris thinks that he can just coast through this month and still graduate, he is sorely mistaken. I have no reservations whatsoever about holding him back another year.
Katie Bueller: This is all news to me.
Ed Rooney: It usually is. So far this semester he has been absent nine times.
Katie Bueller: Nine times?
Ed Rooney: Nine times.
Katie Bueller: I don't remember him being sick nine times.
Ed Rooney: That's probably because he wasn't sick. He was skipping school. Wake up and smell the coffee, Mrs. Bueller. It's a fool's paradise. He is just leading you down the primrose path.
Katie Bueller: I can't believe it.
Ed Rooney: I've got it right here in front of me. He has missed nine days...
[His computer screen begins counting down from nine to two. Ferris is at home looking at the same screen]
Ferris: I asked for a car, I got a computer. How's that for being born under a bad sign?More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
He made a tremendous pass, right between two guys. It was on my backhand, so I had to pull it back. I got it off as quick as I could … It was a great screen (in front of the net) … It was a lucky shot.More [11/29/2007 12:11:00]

Mrs. Chasen: I have here, Harold, the forms sent out by the National Computer Dating Service. It seems to me that as you do not get along with the daughters of my friends, this is the best way for you to find a prospective wife.
[Harold starts to interrupt]
Mrs. Chasen: Please, Harold, we have a lot to do and I have to be at the hairdresser's at three.
[she looks over the papers]
Mrs. Chasen: The Computer Dating Service offers you at least three dates on the initial investment. They screen out the fat and ugly, so it is obviously a firm of high standards.More [02/06/2008 12:02:00]

Master Tang: Hey! It's not funny! What's so - ? He's a predator, for crying out loud!

Klaus Daimler: Where's Esteban?

Steve Zissou: Encounter with highly abnormal shark-like fish! Ten meters in length! Irregular markings! I tagged it dorsally with a homing dart!
Steve Zissou: Esteban was eaten!
Klaus Daimler: Is he dead?
Steve Zissou: Esteban was eaten! Check the scanning monitor before it dives too deep!
Klaus Daimler: He was bitten?
Steve Zissou: Eaten!
Klaus Daimler: [shocked] He was swallowed whole?
Steve Zissou: No! *Chewed*!
Klaus Daimler: [to the camera] He's got hydrogen psychosis, the crazy-eye!

Steve Zissou: Turn on your tape recorder, cubbie.
Jane Winslett-Richardson: Is it the Jaguar Shark?
Steve Zissou: On the record, yes. Cut. Print both takes, Vikram.
Jane Winslett-Richardson: Was I... just in the film?
Steve Zissou: Yeah. You're gonna have to sign a release.More [07/15/2008 12:07:00]

My boys, and you are my boys, I hold in my hand the pardons for both of you. This is the state's gesture in showing it's appreciation of your bravery. It was the firing of the signal shots in the mess hall that saved us from a disaster of cataclysmic dimensions.

[Stan and Ollie stare blankly; Warden hands them their pardons]

Thank you, sir.

Now go, begin life a new. Forget this. Let this episode here be just a hiatus to be obliterated from your memory. And don't forget that I'm your friend. Anything that I can do to help you start where you left off, call on me at any time.

Thank you.

We'll start all over again.

We certainly will.

What you're going to see on the screen are the designs and pictures and stories that music inspired in the minds and imaginations of a group of artists. In other words, these are not going to be the interpretations of trained musicians, which I think is all to the good.

[first lines]

How do you do? My name is Deems Taylor, and it's my very pleasant duty to welcome you here on behalf of Walt Disney, Leopold Stokowski, and all the other artists and musicians whose combined talents went into the creation of this new form of entertainment, "Fantasia". What you're going to see are the designs and pictures and stories that music inspired in the minds and imaginations of a group of artists. In other words, these are not going to be the interpretations of trained musicians, which I think is all to the good. Now there are three kinds of music on this "Fantasia" program. First, there's the kind that tells a definite story. Then there's the kind that while it has no specific plot, it does paint a series of more or less definite pictures. And then there's a third kind, music that exists simply for its own sake. Now, the number that opens our "Fantasia" program, the "Toccata and Fugue", is music of this third kind, what we call "absolute music". Even the title has no meaning beyond a description of the form of the music. What you will see on the screen is a picture of the various abstract images that might pass through your mind if you sat in a concert hall listening to this music. At first, you're more or less conscious of the orchestra. So our picture opens with a series of impressions of the conductor and the players. Then the music begins to suggest other things to your imagination. They might be, oh, just masses of color or they may be cloud forms or great landscapes or vague shadows or geometrical objects floating in space. So now we present the "Toccata and Fugue In D Minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach, interpreted in pictures by Walt Disney and his associates, and in music by the Philadelphia Orchestra and its conductor, Leopold Stokowski.

[introducing the soundtrack] Now we're going to introduce somebody who's very important to Fantasia. He's very shy and very retiring. I just happened to run across him one day at the Disney Studios. But when I did, I realized that here was not only an indispensable member of the organization, but a screen personality. And so I'm very happy to have this opportunity to introduce to you the sound track.
