Clue (1985) quotes

  • And to make a long story short…
    Too late!
  • At the start of the evening, Yvette was here, by herself, waiting to offer you all a glass of champagne. I was in the hall…. I know because I was there.
  • Communism was just a red herring.
  • Frankly, Scarlett, I don’t give a damn.
  • How many husbands have you had?
    Mine or other women’s?
    Yes, just the five. Husbands should be like Kleenex: soft, strong, and disposable.

    Flies are where men are most vulnerable.
  • I hardly think it will enhance your reputation at the U.N. Professor Plum, if it’s revealed that you have been implicated not only in adultery with one of your patients, but in her death and the deaths of five other people.

  • It’s not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the Study; two for the chandelier; two at the Lounge door and one for the singing telegram.
    That’s not six.
    One plus two plus two plus one.
    Uh-uh, there was only one shot that got the chandelier. That’s one plus two plus one plus one.
    Even if you were right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus two plus one plus one.
  • Maybe there is life after death.
    Life after death is as improbable as sex after marriage!
  • “Ours is not to reason why, ours is but to do and die.”
    Merely quoting, sir, from Alfred, Lord Tennyson.
    Hm, I prefer Kipling, myself. “The female of the species is more deadly than the male.” You like Kipling, Miss Scarlet?
    Sure, I’ll eat anything.

    Please, there are ladies present!
  • That’s what we’re trying to find out! We’re trying to find out who killed him, and where, and with what!
  • They all did it. But if you wanna know who killed Mr. Boddy, I did. In the hall. With the revolver. Okay, Chief, take ’em away. I’m gonna go home and sleep with my wife.
  • This is war, Peacock. Casualties are inevitable. You can not make an omelet without breaking eggs, every cook will tell you that.
    But look what happened to the cook!
  • Well, someone’s got to break the ice, and it might as well be me. I mean, I’m used to being a hostess, it’s part of my husband’s work. And it’s always difficult when a group of new friends meet together for the first time, to get acquainted. So I’m perfectly prepared to start the ball rolling. I mean, I-I have absolutely no idea what we’re doing here. Or what I’m doing here, or what this place is about, but I am determined to enjoy myself. And I’m very intrigued, and, oh my, this soup’s delicious, isn’t it?
  • What are you afraid of, a fate worse than death?

    It’s frightened.
