House on Haunted Hill
Movie Quote Quiz

Frederick Loren: I am Frederick Loren, and I have rented the house on Haunted Hill tonight so that my wife can give a party. She's so amusing. There'll be food and drink and ghosts, and perhaps even a few murders. You're all invited. If any of you will spend the next twelve hours in this house, I will give you each ten thousand dollars, or your next of kin in case you don't survive. Ah, but here come our other guests.

Frederick Loren: Would you adore me as much if I were poor? No, all you want to be is a lovely widow.

Lance Schroeder: If I were gonna haunt somebody, this would certainly be the house I'd do it in.

Frederick Loren: This is Nora Manning, I picked her from the thousands of people who work for me because she needed the ten thousand more than most. She supports her whole family. Isn't she pretty?

Dr. David Trent: Nora, I think you're a little upset. Would you care for a sedative?
Nora Manning: Get out! Get out all of you! All of you get out and leave me alone! Just get out of here.

Frederick Loren: Don't let the ghosts and the ghouls disturb you, love.
Annabelle Loren: Darling, the only ghoul in the house is you.

Watson Pritchard: Only the ghosts in this house are glad we're here.

Frederick Loren: Don't stay up thinking of ways to get rid of me, it makes wrinkles.

Annabelle Loren: Oh, I'm sure we're not going to go running around the house shooting each other, aren't you?

Frederick Loren: Mr. Pritchard here promises us genuine ghosts.
Watson Pritchard: Seven now. Maybe more before morning.

Annabelle Loren: My husband is sometimes insane with jealousy. Nothing matters to him.
Lance Schroeder: Would he hurt you?
Annabelle Loren: He would kill me if he could.

Frederick Loren: It's almost time to lock up the house and then your party will really begin. I wonder how it will end.

Watson Pritchard: Four men have been murdered in this house, and three women.
Dr. David Trent: You certainly plan your parties very well, Mr. Loren, four of us are men, three are women, there's a ghost for everybody.

Watson Pritchard: Throw these guns away, they won't be any good.
Dr. David Trent: I agree with Pritchard, although not for the same reason.

Frederick Loren: Pritchard, I've had enough of your spook talk.

Frederick Loren: This is Lance Schroeder, a test pilot. He's no doubt a brave man, but don't you think you can be much braver if you're paid for it? And I happen to know that Lance needs the ten thousand I'm giving, if he's brave enough to stay all night.

Frederick Loren: It's a pity you didn't know when you started your game of murder that I was playing, too.

Frederick Loren: Wasn't there a man who threw his wife into a wine vat or something?
Watson Pritchard: That was in the cellar. There's been a murder almost everywhere in this house.

Annabelle Loren: And you call this a party?
Frederick Loren: Could be.

Annabelle Loren: Dr. Trent, don't you approve of our little party favors?
Dr. David Trent: Suppose Nora had a gun when she was alone in the cellar with the blind woman?
Ruth: Oh, I don't think anyone else is going to walk around in total darkness.
Annabelle Loren: Oh, I'm sure we're not going to go running around the house shooting each other, aren't you?
Dr. David Trent: Who knows? Fear can make people do amazing things.

Continuity mistake: When Annabelle gives Frederick her gun, he places it in the mini-coffin and closes the coffin. However, in one of the next shots, we see that all coffins are open.
