Movie Quote Quiz

Sally Wheeler: You lied to me.
David Greene: I didn't lie to you! I lied to my father! I lied to myself.

David Green: You never told me what religion you are.
Chris Reese: I'm a Methodist.
David Green: A Methodist. And all this time I didn't know it.

Mr. Cleary: The cultural environment in which one lives ought to be as important as the air he breathes... the food he eats.

Dr. Bartram: Was it worth it? Breaking a tradition just to win a football game?

McGivern: If I don't get total tit tonight, I will be using this razor to cut my throat. As I see it, sex is my only reason for living.

Sally Wheeler: I have a confession to make, I think about you more than I ought to.

Dr. Bartram: The honor code is a living thing. It cannot exist in a vacuum.

Charlie Dillon: True story, last weekend there was a religious revival at Madison Square Garden. Bishop Fulton Sheen made such a stirring speech that 10,000 people converted to Catholicism. Then Billy Graham got up and did some inspired preaching and 10,000 people converted to Protestantism, then to close the program, Pat Boone got up and sang "There's A Gold Mine In The Sky" and 20,000 Jews joined the Air Force.

Other mistake: It would have been extremely rare for Christian males to be circumcised during the time period of this film. Since David and his family are practising Jews, he would have been circumcised. Since all the boys at the school shower in a big group shower, they would have known and/or suspected David was Jewish from day one.

Trivia: During Rosh Hashannah eve, the Jewish New Year, the Headmaster Mr. Bartram walks in on David praying in the chapel. At that moment, David is praying 'Avinu Malkeinu' (definition Our Father, Our King). It is a special supplication recited one month (Jewish, not secular) before Rosh Hashannah and it ends on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
