American Film Institute’s Top 10 quotations in American cinema.
“So many people know me, I wish I did— I wish someone would tell me about me. What is that, Margo, beside spelled out in light bulbs; besides something called a temperament which consists mostly of swooping about on a broomstick and screaming at the top of my voice. Infants behave the way I do, you know, they carry on and misbehave; they’d get drunk if they knew how— when they can’t get what they want, when they feel unwanted or insecure or unloved. More than anything in this world I love Bill and I want Bill and I want him to want me, but me, not Margo Channing. If I can’t tell them apart, how can he? Bill’s in love with Margo Channing; he’s fought with her, worked with her, and loved her but ten years from now Margo Channing will cease to exist and what’s left will be… what?”
