A manipulative woman and a roguish man conduct a turbulent romance during the American Civil War and Reconstruction periods.

Rhett, Rhett… Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?
– Scarlett
Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
– Rhett Butler

No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.
– Rhett Butler

I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.
– Scarlett

I only know that I love you.
– Scarlett
That’s your misfortune.
– Rhett Butler

Rhett, don’t. I shall faint.
– Scarlett
I want you to faint. This is what you were meant for. None of the fools you’ve ever know have kissed you like this, have they? Your Charles, or your Frank, or your stupid Ashley.
– Rhett Butler

Tara! Home. I’ll go home. And I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all… tomorrow is another day.
– Scarlett

Oh, Rhett! Please, don’t go! You can’t leave me! Please! I’ll never forgive you!
– Scarlett
I’m not asking you to forgive me. I’ll never understand or forgive myself. And if a bullet gets me, so help me, I’ll laugh at myself for being an idiot. There’s one thing I do know… and that is that I love you, Scarlett. In spite of you and me and the whole silly world going to pieces around us, I love you. Because we’re alike. Bad lots, both of us. Selfish and shrewd. But able to look things in the eyes as we call them by their right names.
– Rhett Butler
Don’t hold me like that!
– Scarlett
Scarlett! Look at me! I’ve loved you more than I’ve ever loved any woman and I’ve waited for you longer than I’ve ever waited for any woman.
– Rhett Butler
Let me alone!
– Scarlett
Here’s a soldier of the South who loves you, Scarlett. Wants to feel your arms around him, wants to carry the memory of your kisses into battle with him. Never mind about loving me, you’re a woman sending a soldier to his death with a beautiful memory. Scarlett! Kiss me! Kiss me… once…
– Rhett Butler

You still think you’re the cutest trick in shoe leather.
– Rhett Butler

Would you satisfy my curiosity on a point which has bothered me for some time?
– Rhett Butler
Well, what is it? Be quick!
– Scarlett
Tell me, Scarlett, do you never shrink from marrying men you don’t love?
– Rhett Butler
How did you ever get out of jail? Why didn’t they hang you?
– Scarlett

Sir, you are no gentleman.
– Scarlett
And you, Miss, are no lady.
– Rhett Butler

It will come to you, this love of the land. There’s no gettin’ away from it if you’re Irish.
– Gerald O’Hara

I’m very drunk and I intend on getting still drunker before this evening’s over.
– Rhett Butler

You’re like the thief who isn’t the least bit sorry he stole, but is terribly, terribly sorry he’s going to jail.
– Rhett Butler

Do you mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett O’Hara, that Tara, that land doesn’t mean anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin’ for, worth fightin’ for, worth dyin’ for, because it’s the only thing that lasts.
– Gerald O’Hara

With enough courage, you can do without a reputation.
– Rhett Butler

As God is my witness, as God is my witness they’re not going to lick me. I’m going to live through this and when it’s all over, I’ll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again.
– Scarlett

I can’t go all my life waiting to catch you between husbands.
– Rhett Butler

Cathleen, who’s that?
– Scarlett
Who?
– Cathleen Calvert
That man looking at us and smiling. The nasty, dark one.
– Scarlett
My dear, don’t you know? That’s Rhett Butler. He’s from Charleston. He has the most terrible reputation.
– Cathleen Calvert
He looks as if… as if he knows what I look like without my shimmy.
– Scarlett
