Ida 'Big Momma' Pollitt: I don't like locked doors in my house.
Dixie Pollitt: Why is Uncle Brick on the floor?
Brick Pollitt: Because I tried to kill your Aunt Maggie. But I failed. And I fell.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: Stop that, ya little no-neck monster.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: You can be young without money, but you can't be old without it.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: You've got to.
Brick Pollitt: I don't have to do anything I don't want to! Now, you keep forgetting the conditions on which I agreed to stay on living with you.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: I'm not living with you! We occupy the same cage, that's all.
Brick Pollitt: Don't make a fool of yourself, Maggie.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: I don't mind making a fool of myself over you.
Brick Pollitt: Well, I mind. I feel embarrassed for you.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: Feel embarrassed? Well, I can't live on this way.
Brick Pollitt: You agreed to accept that condition.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: I know I did. But I can't! I can't.
Brick Pollitt: But, how in hell on earth can you imagine you're gonna have a child with a man who cannot stand you.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: You know what I feel like? I feel all the time like a cat on a hot tin roof.
Brick Pollitt: Then jump off the roof, Maggie. Jump off it. Cats jump off roofs and land uninjured. Do it. Jump.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: Jump where? Into what?
Dr. Baugh: Sometimes I wish I had a pill to make people disappear.
Ida 'Big Momma' Pollitt: We never were a very happy family. There just wasn't much joy in this house. It wasn't Big Daddy's fault. It was just... you know how some families are happy.
Ida 'Big Momma' Pollitt: Do you make Brick happy?
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: Why don't you ask if he makes me happy?
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: You're a drinker and i'm childless.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: Did the storm cause any damage, Big Daddy?
Harvey 'Big Daddy' Pollitt: Which storm you talking about, the one on the outside or the hullabaloo I heard going on in here? Heard some mighty loud talking. What's the powwow about?
Mae Pollitt: Nothing, Big Daddy, nothing at all.
Harvey 'Big Daddy' Pollitt: What's in them important-looking documents you got there, Gooper?
Gooper Pollitt: Nothing, sir, nothing much of anything at all.
Margaret "Maggie" Pollitt: Where did I fail you? Where did I make my mistake?
Gooper Pollitt: I don't give a damn whether Big Daddy likes me, or don't likes me. Or did or never did. Or will or will never.
Brick Pollitt: People like doing what they used to do, after they've stopped being able to do it.
Harvey 'Big Daddy' Pollitt: I've got the guts to die. What I want to know is, have you got the guts to live?
Brick Pollitt: Big Daddy, Big Daddy. Now, what makes him so big? His big heart, his big belly, or his big money?
Brick Pollitt: Careful Maggie, your claws are showing.
