Annie is a 1999 American made-for-television musical-comedy-drama film from The Wonderful World of Disney in which a little orphan girl catches the attention of a kind man named Mr. Warbucks, who wants to adopt her, but the cruel, strict orphanage owner has a scheme to keep Annie - and her reward money. This was the first remake of the 1982 film Annie.

Directed by Rob Marshall. Written by Irene Mecchi, adapted from the 1977 Broadway musical of the same name by Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin, and Thomas Meehan, which in turn is based on the 1924 Little Orphan Annie comic strip by Harold Gray.

Miss Hannigan[edit]

  • [sings before she is banished] I'm headed straight for the nut house! With all the nuts and the squirrels! And there I'll stay, tucked away, till the prohibition of... little... GIRLS!


  • Lily: [looking down at her handcuffs and yelling at Rooster] Well, it ain't Easy Street, but at least I'm wearing silver!
  • Kate: Mr. Bundles rolled Annie out with the dirty laundry!


Lily: Oliver Warbucks... the millionaire?
Miss Hannigan: No, the billionaire, you dumb hotel.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt: Annie, I have some news for you. Oliver. [he shakes Oliver's hand] The FBI was able to trace your parents to David and Margaret Bennett.
Annie: You mean the Bennetts are my real parents? Where are they?
Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks: Annie, sorry. It seems that they passed away some time ago.
Annie: So, I really am an orphan.
[she walks away and Grace follows her]
Miss Grace Farrell: Annie, are you alright?
[Annie turns around]
Annie: Yeah, I think so. See, I always knew that parents loved me and that they would come back for me someday. If they were alive. [she has a teardrop in her eye and Grace hugs her] I guess you have to look at the bright side. At least I'm not a Mudge.

Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks: Annie, I love you as if you were my own little girl. I want to adopt you. Would you consider it?
Annie: It's just that I love my real mother and father so much. I don't know if I could love anybody else.
Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks: I understand, but if you could find a place in your heart for me...

Annie: I thought you hated your job.
Miss Hannigan: No, I love my job, it's kids I hate.

Lily: Ms. Lily St. Regis. I was named after the hotel.
Miss Hannigan: Which floor?

Miss Hannigan: OK, Missy. I don't ever want you to do this again. So you're going to scrub every inch of this dump with this. [she's holding a dirty toothbrush] Glad you're back?
Annie: Yes, Miss Hannigan.
[tries to take the toothbrush from her]
Miss Hannigan: [pulls back the toothbrush] Liar. What's the one thing I always taught you?
Annie: Never tell a lie.
Miss Hannigan: That's right.

Miss Grace Farrell: Excuse me, I was told I'd find Miss Hannigan here?
Miss Hannigan: And who might you be?
Miss Grace Farrell: I'm Grace Farrell, the Board of Orphans...
Miss Hannigan: Look, there was some sort of mistake. Somehow, Annie got into the laundry basket. One thing led to another and I had to call the cops. Please don't fire me!
Miss Grace Farrell: I think you have me confused with somebody else.
Miss Hannigan: Oh, I get it. Uh, listen, honey, if you're peddling beauty products I don't need any.
Miss Grace Farrell: Miss Hannigan, I don't peddle anything. I'm personal secretary to Oliver Warbucks.

Miss Hannigan: I don't know whatever I'd without you.
Annie: Scrub the floors yourself?

Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks: Who are you?
Annie: I'm Annie.
