Chris Gardner (Will Smith): "I thought I'd wear a shirt today, since it's my last day and all."
Martin Frohm (James Karen): "Well, thank you. We appreciate that but umm wear one tomorrow. Okay? Tomorrow is going to be your first day, if you'd like to work here as a broker. Would you like that, Chris?"
Chris Gardner (Will Smith): "Yes, Sir."
Martin Frohm (James Karen): "Good. We couldn't be happier. So, welcome! Was it as easy as it looked?"
Chris Gardner (Will Smith): "No, Sir. No, Sir - it wasn't."

Moses (Charlton Heston): "Lord, Lord. Why do you not hear the cries of their children, in the bondage of Egypt?"
Voice of God: "I have surely seen the affliction of my people, which are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry, by reason of their taskmasters. For I know, their sorrows. Therefore, I will send thee, Moses, on to Pharaoh that thou mayst bring my people out of Egypt."
Moses (Charlton Heston): "Whom, am I, Lord, that you should send me? How can I lead this people out of bondage? What words can I speak that they will heed?"
Voice of God: "I will teach thee what thou shall say. They shall serve me upon this mountain. I will put my law into their hearts and in their minds, I will write them. Now therefore, go and I will be with thee."
Moses (Charlton Heston): "But if I say to your children, the God of their Fathers has sent me, they will ask what is His name? How shall I answer them?"
Voice of God: "I am, that I am. Thout shall say, 'I Am' hath sent me on to you."

Cher (Alicia Silverstone): "When, I had this Garden Party for my father's 50th birthday. Right? I said RSVP because it was a sit down dinner. But people came that like did not RSVP. So, I was like totally buggin! I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, squish in extra place settings but by the end of the day, it was like the more the merrier. In so, if the government could just get to the kitchen and rearrange some things, we can certainly welcome the Haitians. And in conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you."
Mr. Hall (Wallace Shawn): "Amber, your reply?"
Amber (Elisa Donovan): "Mr. Hall, how can I answer that? The topic is Haiti and she's talking about some little party.....Whatever! if she doesn't do the assignment, I can't do mine."
Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman): "Yes. 'It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas' something like that."
Sister Beauvier (Meryl Streep): "What would be the point of a uh- secular song?"
Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman): "It's fun."
Sister James (Amy Adams): "'Frosty The Snowman?"
Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman): "That's a good one. We can have one of the boys sing it...."
Sister Beauvier (Meryl Streep): "'Frosty, The Snowman' espouses a Pagan belief in magic. The snowman comes to life when a uh- enchanted hat is put on his head. If the music were more softer, people would realize the images are disturbing and the song is heretical."
Sister James (Amy Adams): "I never thought about 'Frosty the Snowman' like that."
Sister Beauvier (Meryl Streep): "It should be banned from the airwaves!"
Father Flynn (Philip Seymour Hoffman): "So - Not 'Frosty The Snowman.'"
Potter: "Mr. Chairman, I'd like to get to my real purpose....I claim this institution is not necessary to this town. Therefore, Mr. Chairman I make a motion to dissolve this institution and turn its assets & liabilities over to its receiver.....Peter Bailey was not a businessman. That's what killed him. Oh, I don't mean no disrespect to him, God rest his soul. He was a man of high ideals,so called but ideals without common sense can ruin this town. Now, take this loan here, Ernie Bishop. Ya know, a man that sits around all day on his brains, in his taxi. I happen to know the bank turned down this loan but he comes here and we're building him a house worth $5000k dollars. Why? "
George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart): "Well, I handled that, Mr. Potter. You have all of the papers there: his salary, insurance, and I can personally vouch for his character."
Potter: "A friend of yours?"
George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart): "Yes, Sir."
Potter: "Ahh! You see, if you shoot pool with some employee here, you can come and borrow money. What does that get us? A discontented lazy rabble instead of a thrifty working class. All because a few starry eyed dreamers like Peter Bailey stir them up and fill their heads with a lot of impossible ideas. Now I say - "
George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart): "Just a minute. Just a minute, now hold on, Mr. Potter. Just a minute, now you're right, when you say my father was no business man. I know that. Why he ever start this cheap penny anty Building & Loan, I'll never know but neither you or anyone else can say something against his character because his whole life was - Why in the 25 years since he and Uncle Billy started this thing, he never once thought of himself. Isn't that right, Uncle Billy? He barely saved enough money to send Harry to school, let alone me but he did help a few people get out of your slums, Mr. Potter. And what's wrong with that? You're all business men, here. Doesn't that make them better citizens? Doesn't that make them better customers? You said, what did you say just a minute ago? "They had to wait and save their money before they can even have a thought of a decent home." Wait?!~ Wait for what? Until their children grow up and leave them? Until they are so old and broken down that - do you know how long it takes a working man to save $5000 dollars? Just remember this, Mr. Potter. This rabble that you talk about does most of the working and paying and living and dieing in this community. Well is it too much to work and live and die in a few decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn't think so. People were human beings to him but to you, a warped frustrated old man, they're cattle. Well, in my book, he died a much richer man than you'll ever be."
Potter: "I'm not interested in your book. I'm talking about the Building & Loan."
George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart): "I know very well what you're talking about, you're talking about something that you can't get your fingers on and it's gawing at you! I know. Well, I've said too much. You're the board here. You do what you want with this thing. There's just one thing more though. This town needs this measly one horse institution, if only to have someplace where people can come without having to come crawling to Potter!"
