Clayton Boone: Oh, yeah? Well, this kisser wasn't so bad that you couldn't lay under it a couple of times.

Clayton Boone: The monster's lonely. He wants a friend. A girlfriend. Somebody. What's so sick about that?

Hannah: Poor Mr. Jimmy. There is much good in him, but he will suffer the fires of hell.

Hannah: That is what the priests tell me. His sins of the flesh will keep him from heaven.
Clayton Boone: Hell, everybody's got those.

Edmund Kay: No, but it's the horror movies you'll be remembered for.
James Whale: I'm not dead yet, Mr. Kay.

James Whale: I've spent much of my life outrunning the past, and now it floods all over me.

James Whale: There was a time when this place was full of pricks. Big, hard, arrogant pricks.

Betty: I bet he's some fruit just pretending to be famous so that he can get in the big guy's pants.
Clayton Boone: What makes you say that?
Betty: Just thinking out loud.
Clayton Boone: Well, why don't you just keep your dirty thoughts to yourself?

Clayton Boone: Fuck you.
Betty: Not anymore you don't.

James Whale: It is kind of you to indulge your elders in their vices. Just as I indulge the young in theirs.

Clayton Boone: Well, um, w-what were some of your movies?
James Whale: Oh, this and that. The only ones that you may have heard of are the Frankenstein movies.
Clayton Boone: Frankenstein? And, um, uh, Bride of Frankenstein? And the Son of? And the other ones too?
James Whale: Uh, no, I-I just directed the first two. The others were done by hacks.

James Whale: My life is a game of strip poker. Want to play?

Continuity mistake: Whale commits suicide by drowning himself in the pool. When Clayton pulls him out the color of Whale's suit changes from black to brownish, and vice versa when Clayton throws him back in. Varying degrees of wetness should not be the reason as he should be drenched too while he is lying at the poolside. (01:33:40)
