George, I am an old man, and most people hate me. But I don’t like them either so that makes it all even.
– Mr. Potter

I wish I had a million dollars… Hot dog!
– George Bailey

Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!
– George Bailey

Isn’t it wonderful? I’m going to jail!
– George Bailey

After all, Potter, some people like George HAD to stay at home. Not every heel was in Germany and Japan.
– Uncle Billy

Look, Daddy. Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.
– Zuzu Bailey
That’s right, that’s right.
– George Bailey
Attaboy, Clarence.
– George Bailey

You see, George, you’ve really had a wonderful life. Don’t you see what a mistake it would be to throw it away?
– Clarence

I’m shakin’ the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I’m gonna see the world. Italy, Greece, the Parthenon, the Colosseum. Then, I’m comin’ back here to go to college and see what they know. And then I’m gonna build things. I’m gonna build airfields, I’m gonna build skyscrapers a hundred stories high, I’m gonna build bridges a mile long…
– George Bailey

Is this the ear you can’t hear on?
– Little Mary
George Bailey, I’ll love you ’til the day I die.
– Little Mary

I been savin’ this money for a divorce, if ever I got a husband.
– Annie

Dear Father in heaven, I’m not a praying man, but if you’re up there and you can hear me.
– George Bailey
Show me the way… show me the way.
– George Bailey

Why don’t you kiss her instead of talking her to death?
– Man on Porch
You want me to kiss her, huh?
– George Bailey
Ah, youth is wasted on the wrong people.
– Man on Porch

A toast to my big brother George: The richest man in town.
– Harry Bailey

Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?
– Clarence

What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll give you the moon, Mary.
– George Bailey
I’ll take it. Then what?
– Mary
Well, then you can swallow it, and it’ll all dissolve, see… and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair… am I talking too much?
– George Bailey

Your brother, Harry Bailey, broke through the ice and was drowned at the age of nine.
– Clarence
That’s a lie! Harry Bailey went to war! He got the Congressional Medal of Honor! He saved the lives of every man on that transport!
– George Bailey
Every man on that transport died. Harry wasn’t there to save them, because you weren’t there to save Harry.
– Clarence

Now, come on, get your clothes on, and we’ll stroll up to my car and get… Oh, I’m sorry. I’ll stroll. You fly.
– George Bailey
I can’t fly! I haven’t got my wings.
– Clarence
You haven’t got your wings. Yeah, that’s right.
– George Bailey

I know what I’m gonna do tomorrow, and the next day, and the next year, and the year after that.
– George Bailey
