Oliver Warbucks

  • [about the Mona Lisa] There's something interesting in that woman's smile. I might learn to like her. Hang her in my bathroom.
  • I'm a businessman. I love money, I love power, I love capitalism. I do not now and never will love children.

Miss Hannigan

  • [singing] Some women are drippin' with diamonds / Some women are drippin' with pearls / Lucky me, lucky me, look at what I'm drippin' with / Little girls!
  • Little girls, little girls, everywhere I turn I can see them.
  • Do I hear happiness in here?
  • [to Rooster about Annie] She may be a mean, rotten little orphan, but I'm not gonna let you kill her!


  • Grace: You love money and power and capitalism? You know they're never going to love you back...
  • Punjab: Buddha says "A child without courage is like a night without stars!"


Annie: I guess they're dead. I guess I've known that deep down for a long time.
Warbucks: I'm not giving up. Don't you give up.
Annie: I didn't want to be just another orphan, Mr. Warbucks. I wanted to believe I was special.
Warbucks: You are special! Never stop believing that!

Annette: May I take your sweater, miss?
Annie: Will I get it back?

Warbucks: Annie's gone. Her parents came and took her away.
Molly: But they wasn't her real parents, mister. They was bad people!

Miss Hannigan: Where's Annie?
Molly: She had to go bathroom.
Miss Hannigan: [mockingly] She had to go bathroom!

Warbucks: Miss Hannigan, I presume?
Miss Hannigan: Yes?
Warbucks: I wanna talk to you about Annie.
Miss Hannigan: You wanna return her and forget her? Or trade up?
Warbucks: I wanna adopt her.
Miss Hannigan: Would you excuse me for a moment? Aaarggghh!

Warbucks: You spend your evenings in the shanties.
Miss Hannigan: You had me followed.
Mr. Warbucks: Imbibing quarts of bathtub gin.
Miss Hannigan: Bronchitism.
Warbucks: And here you're dancing in your scanties,
Miss Hannigan: Great gams.
Warbucks: With some old geezer called Little Caeser,
Miss Hannigan: He's an uncle.
Warbucks: You lock the orphans in the closet.
Miss Hannigan: They love it!
Warbucks: You hock their Christmas souvenirs.
Miss Hannigan: Drink?
Warbucks: You steal the funds you should deposit.
Miss Hannigan: It's fresh.
Warbucks: You make the grovel while you buy laveleers.

Miss Hannigan: What are you just standing around here for? You're supposed to clean the bathroom and the kitchen before lunch, my little pig droppings, and if you skip the corners, there will be no lunch. And we're not having hot mush today...
Orphans: Yay!
Miss Hannigan: We're having *cold* mush!

Orphans: We love you, Miss Hannigan.
Miss Hannigan: Shut up!

Miss Hannigan: You can have any orphan in the whole orphanage... except Annie.
Grace: Well, why?
Miss Hannigan: Because she's got it comin' to her; and I *don't* mean 'a week in the lap of luxury'!

Grace: What about this child?
Miss Hannigan: Annie?... Oh, you don't want Annie.
Grace: Why not?
Miss Hannigan: Because... Because she's a drunk!
