Brick[edit]

  • One man has one great good true thing in his life. One great good thing which is true! I had friendship with Skipper. You are namin' it dirty!

Big Daddy[edit]

  • What's that smell in this room? Didn't you notice it, Brick? Didn't you notice the powerful and obnoxious odor of mendacity in this room?

Maggie[edit]

  • I'm not living with you! We occupy the same cage, that's all.
  • One more crack, queenie, just one, and I will not only spit in your eye but I will punch it black and blue!

Dialogue[edit]

Maggie: I'll win, all right.
Brick: Win what? What is the victory of a cat on a hot tin roof?
Maggie: Just staying on it, I guess. As long as she can.
Big Daddy: Why do you drink so much?
Brick: Gimme another drink and I'll tell you.
