Samson and Delilah
Movie Quote Quiz

Samson: What is sweeter than honey?

Samson: Your arms were quicksand. Your kiss was death. The name Delilah will be an everlasting curse on the lips of men.

Samson: A man must marry where his heart leads him, little mother.
Hazelelponit: A man's heart can be blind, son.

Prince Ahtur: This Samson has some unknown power, some secret that gives him superhuman strength. No man can stand against him.
Delilah: Perhaps he'll fall before a woman. Even Samson's strength must have a weakness. There isn't a man in the world who would not share his secrets with some woman.

Samson: I prayed for an angel of the Lord and the Devil sent me you.

Saran of Gaza: He was not captured by force of arms, but by their softness.

Teresh: Out of the strong came forth sweetness? Hah! The fruit of the date palm! The tree is strong, and the fruit is sweet.
Semadar: Teresh, what on earth you feed date palms to make them eaters?

Samson: The oldest trick in the world. Silk trap, baited with a woman.
Delilah: You know a better bait, Samson? Men always respond.

Continuity mistake: In the final destruction-of-the-temple scene, the huge statue of Dagon starts to topple head first, but in later shots it is sliding towards the camera feet first. This is because director Cecil DeMille was not satisfied with the first take and had the temple re-erected then collapsed a second time. Shots from both destructions are spliced together in an exciting sequence, but rather puzzling architectually.
