The Lady Vanishes
Movie Quote Quiz

Iris Henderson: I've no regrets. I've been everywhere and done everything. I've eaten caviar at Cannes, sausage rolls at the dogs. I've played baccarat at Biarritz and darts with the rural dean. What is there left for me but marriage?

Charters: You can't expect to put the two of us up in the maid's room.
Hotel Manager: Well don't get excited. I'll remove the maid out.

Charters: If only we hadn't missed that train at Budapest.
Caldicott: Well, I don't want to rub it in, but if you hadn't insisted on standing up until they'd finished their national anthem.
Charters: Yes, but you must show respect, Caldicott. If I'd known it was going to last twenty minutes.
Caldicott: It has always been my contention that the Hungarian Rhapsody is not their national anthem.

Iris Henderson: You're the most contemptible person I've ever met in all my life.
Gilbert: Confidentially, I think you're a bit of a stinker, too.

Gilbert: Come on, sit down, take it easy. What's the trouble?
Iris Henderson: If you must know, something fell on my head.
Gilbert: When, infancy?

Gilbert: Never climb a fence if you can sit on it.

Miss Froy: I never think you should judge any country by its politics. After all, we English are quite honest by nature, aren't we?

Gilbert: Can I help?
Iris Henderson: Only by going away.
Gilbert: No, no, no, no. My father always taught me, never desert a lady in trouble. He even carried that as far as marrying Mother.

Plot hole: When Iris Henderson and her two friends arrive at the hotel, Iris orders dinner and asks that it be sent up to "our" room. The waiter arrives when the three are changing. But later, when it's time for bed, Iris says good night to her friends, who leave her alone in the room (as she must be for the sake of subsequent developments).
