Rose Sayer: Dear Lord, We've come to the end of our journey, and in a little while we'll stand before you. I pray for you to be merciful. Judge us not for our weaknesses, but for our love and open the doors of heaven for Charlie and me.
Rose: Dear?.. Dear?.. What is your first name?
Rose Sayer: Mr. Allnut! Mr. Allnut, you may come in out of the rain.
Charlie: We can't do that.
Rose: How do you know? You never tried it.
Charlie: Well, yeah, but I never tried shooting myself in the head neither.
Rose: I never dreamed that any mere physical experience could be so stimulating.
Charlie Allnut: Nobody in Africa, but yours truly, can get a good head of steam on the old African Queen.
Charlie: All this fool talk about The Louisa. Goin' down the river.
Rose: What do you mean?
Charlie: I mean we ain't goin' to do nothin' of the sort.
Rose: Why, of course we're going! What an absurd idea.
Charlie: What an absurd idea! What an absurd idea! Lady, I may be a born fool, but you got ten absurd ideas to my one, an' don't you forget it.
Charlie: It's a great thing to have a lady aboard with clean habits. It sets the man a good example. A man alone, he gets to living like a hog.
Charlie Allnut: Nothin' a man can't do if he sets his mind to it. Never say die. That's my motto.
Charlie Allnut: What a time we had Rosie, what a time we had.
Rose Sayer: Fancy me a heroine.
