Quotes from Oskar Werner movies and TV shows
Clarisse: Is it true that a long time ago, firemen used to put out fires and not burn books?
Guy Montag: Your uncle is right, you are light in the head, put out fires? Houses have always been fireproof.
Clarisse: Ours isn't.
Guy Montag: Well, it should be condemned, destroyed, and you'll have to move to one that is.
Clarisse: But why do you burn books?
Guy Montag: Books make people unhappy, they make them anti-social.
Clarisse: Do you think I'm anti-social?
Guy Montag: Why do you ask?
Clarisse: Well... I'm a teacher, not quite actually, I'm still on probation. I was called to the administration office today, and I don't think I said the right things. I'm not at all happy about my answers.
Guy Montag: Look at that fellow over there.
Clarisse: What's he doing?
Guy Montag: That's the information box. He can't make up his mind.
Clarisse: What does he want to find out?
Guy Montag: He doesn't want to find out anything. He knows someone who has books, so he got hold of the person's picture and number and is going to drop it into that box.
Clarisse: But he's an informer.
Guy Montag: No, he's an informant.
Guy Montag: Fahrenheit four-five-one is the temperature at which book paper catches fire and starts to burn.
Fr. David Telemond: It is strange. When a president dies, he's replaced within an hour. When a king dies, long live the king. When a pope dies, everything stops.
