A Clockwork Orange (film) Quotes

Malcolm McDowell as Alex

  • (Malcolm McDowell) "I woke up. The pain and sickness all over me like an animal. Then I realized what it was. The music coming up from the floor was our old friend, Ludwig Van, and the dreaded Ninth Symphony."
  • (Conspirator) "Do you still feel suicidal?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Well, put it this way, I feel very low in myself. I can't see much in the future, and I feel that any second something terrible is going to happen to me."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Hi, hi, hi there. At last we meet. Our brief govoreet through the letter-hole was not, shall we say, satisfactory, yes?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Hey dad, there's a strange fella sittin' on the sofa munchy-wunching lomticks of toast."
  • (Philip Stone) "That's Joe. He lives here now. The lodger, that's what he is. He rents your room."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Hi, hi, hi, Mr. Deltoid. Funny surprise, seeing you here."
  • (Aubrey Morris) "Ah, Alex boy. Awake at last, yes? I met your mother on the way to work, yes? She gave me the key. She said something about a pain somewhere, hence not at school, yes?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "A rather intolerable pain in the head, brother sir. I think it should be clear by this after lunch."
  • (Aubrey Morris) "Mmm. Or certainly by this evening, yes? The evening's the great time, isn't it, Alex boy? Hmm?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Cup of the old chai, sir?"
  • (Aubrey Morris) "No time, no time, yes. Sit, sit, sit."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "To what do I owe this extreme pleasure, sir? Anything wrong, sir?"
  • (Aubrey Morris) "Wrong? Why should you think of anything being wrong? Have you been doing something you shouldn't, yes?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Just a manner of speech, sir."
  • (Aubrey Morris) "Yes. Well, it's just a manner of speech from your post-corrective advisor to you that you watch out, little Alex, because next time, it's not going to be the corrective school anymore. Next time, it's going to be the barley place and all my work ruined. If you've no respect for your horrible self, you at least might have some for me, who've sweated over you. A big black mark, I tell you, for every one we don't reclaim. A confession of failure for every one of you who ends up in the stripy hole."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "I've been doing nothing I shouldn't, sir. The Millicents have nothing on me, brother. Sir, I mean."
  • (Aubrey Morris) "Cut out this clever talk about Millicents. Just because the police haven't picked you up lately doesn't, as you very well know, mean that you've not been up to some nastiness. That was a bit of a nastiness last night, yes? Some very extreme nastiness, yes? A few of a certain Billy Boy's friends were ambulanced off late, yes. Your name was mentioned. The words got through to me by the usual channels. Certain friends of yours were named also. Oh, nobody can prove anything about anybody, as usual. But I'm warning you, little Alex, being a good friend to you, as always, the one man in this sore and sick community who wants to save you from yourself."
  • (Aubrey Morris) "What gets into all? We studied the problem. We've been studying it for damn well near a century, yes, but we get no further with our studies. You got a good home here. Good, loving parents. You've got not too bad of a brain. Is it some devil that crawls inside of you?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Nobody's got anything on me, brother sir. I've been out of the rookers of the Millicents for a long time now."
  • (Aubrey Morris) "That's just what worries me. A bit too long to be safe. You're about due now, by my reckoning. That's why I'm warning you, little Alex, to keep your handsome young proboscis out of the dirt. Do I make myself clear?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "As an unmuddied lake, sir. As clear as an azure sky of deepest summer. You can rely on me, sir."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "I was cured, all right."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Naughty, Naughty, Naughty.You Filthy Old Soomka."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "It's impossible. I can't believe it."
  • (James Marcus) "Evidence of the ol' glassies. Nothing up our sleeves, no magic little Alex. A job for two who are now of job age. The police."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Suddenly, I viddied what I had to do, and what I had wanted to do, and that was to do myself in; to snuff it, to blast off for ever out of this wicked, cruel world. One moment of pain perhaps and, then, sleep for ever, and ever and ever."
  • (Minister) "As I was saying, Alex, you can be instrumental in changing the public verdict. Do you understand, Alex? Have I made myself clear?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "As an unmuddied lake, friend. As clear as an azure sky of deepest summer. You can rely on me, friend."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "And the first thing that flashed into my gulliver was that I'd like to have her right down there on the floor with the old in-out, real savage."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper. Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Missus. It's a matter of life and death."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now to give it the perfect ending was a bit of the old Ludwig van."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "The Durango '95 purred away a real horrowshow; a nice, warm vibraty feeling all through your guttiwuts. And soon it was trees and dark, my brothers, with real country dark."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "No. No. NO. Stop it. Stop it, please. I beg you. This is sin. This is sin. This is sin. It's a sin, it's a sin, it's a sin."
  • (Carl Duering) "Sin? What's all this about sin?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "That. Using Ludwig van like that. He did no harm to anyone. Beethoven just wrote music."
  • (Madge Ryan) "Are you referring to the background score?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Yes."
  • (Madge Ryan) "You've heard Beethoven before?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Yes."
  • (Carl Duering) "So, you're keen on music?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "YES."
  • (Carl Duering) "Can't be helped. Here's the punishment element perhaps."
  • (Minister) "Oh, yes. I understand you're fond of music. I have arranged a little surprise for you."

  • (Minister) "One that I hope that you will like. As a um -- how shall we put it? As a symbol of our new understanding. An understanding between two friends."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Ho, ho, ho. Well, if it isn't fat stinking billy goat Billy Boy in poison. How art thou, thou globby bottle of cheap, stinking chip oil? Come and get one in the yarbles, if ya have any yarbles, you eunuch jelly thou."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "I've suffered the tortures of the damned, sir"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "tortures of the damned."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "No time for the old in-n-out, love, I've just come to read the meter."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well. To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising visit?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Hi, hi, hi, Mr. Deltoid."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "As we walked along the flatblock marina, I was calm on the outside, but thinking all the time. So now it was to be Georgie the general, saying what we should do and what not to do, and Dim as his mindless greeding bulldog. But suddenly I viddied that thinking was for the gloopy ones and that the oomny ones use, like, inspiration and what Bog sends. For now it was lovely music that came to my aid. There was a window open with the stereo on and I viddied right at once what to do."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Excuse me, Mrs. Can you please help? There's been a terrible accident. My friend's in the middle of the road bleeding to death. Can I please use your telephone for an ambulance?"
  • (Minister) "What crime did you commit?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "The accidental killing of a person, sir."

  • (Michael Gover) "Well, fine, we could still look at C-block --"

  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Thank you very much for this chance, sir."
  • (Minister) "Let's hope you make the most of it, my boy."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "You needn't take it any further, sir. You've proved to me that all this ultraviolence and killing is wrong, wrong, and terribly wrong. I've learned me lesson, sir. I've seen now what I've never seen before. I'm cured. Praise god."
  • (Carl Duering) "You're not cured yet, boy."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Appy-polly-loggies. I had something of a pain in the gulliver so had to sleep. I was not awakened when I gave orders for wakening."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Initiative comes to thems that wait."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Viddy well, little brother. Viddy well."
  • (Minister) "Punishment means nothing to them, you can see that. They enjoy their so-called punishment."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "You're absolutely right, sir."
  • (Michael Bates) "Shut your bleeding hole."

Godfrey Quigley as Prison Chaplain

  • (Godfrey Quigley) "Choice. The boy has not a real choice, has he? Self-interest, the fear of physical pain drove him to that grotesque act of self-abasement. The insincerity was clear to be seen. He ceases to be a wrongdoer. He ceases also to be a creature capable of moral choice."
  • (Minister) "Padre, there are subtleties. We are not concerned with motives, with the higher ethics. We are concerned only with cutting down crime and with relieving the ghastly congestion in our prisons. He will be your true Christian, ready to turn the other cheek, ready to be crucified rather than crucify, sick to the heart at the thought of killing a fly. Reclamation. Joy before the angels of God. The point is that it works."
  • (Godfrey Quigley) "Goodness is something to be chosen. When a man cannot choose he ceases to be a man."
  • (Godfrey Quigley) "What's it going to be, eh? Is it going to be in and out of institutions like this? Well, more in and out for most of ya. Or are you going to attend to the Divine Word and realise the punishments that await unrepentant sinners in the next world as well as this? A lot of idiots you are, selling your own birthright for a saucer of cold porridge. The thrill of theft. Of violence. The urge to live easy. Well, I ask you what is it worth when we have undeniable truth; yes. Incontrovertible evidence that Hell exists. I know. I know my friends. I have been informed in visions that there is a place darker than any prison, hotter than any flame of human fire, where souls of unrepentant criminal sinners like yourselves --."
  • (Godfrey Quigley) "Don't you laugh, damn you. Don't you laugh. I say like yourselves scream in endless and unendurable agony. Their skin rotting and peeling. A fireball spinning in their screaming guts. I know. Oh yes, I know."

Patrick Magee as Frank Alexander

  • (Patrick Magee) "Who on Earth could that be?"
  • (David Prowse) "I'll see who it is."
  • (David Prowse) "Yes, what is it?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Help -- please -- help -- help."
  • (David Prowse) "Frank, I think this young man needs some help."
  • (Patrick Magee) "My God. What happened to you, my boy?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "And would you believe it, o my brothers and only friends. There was your faithful narrator being held helpless, like a babe in arms, and suddenly realizing where he was and why home on the gate had looked so familiar, but I knew I was safe. For in those care-free days, I and my so-called droogies wore our maskies, which were like real horror-show disguises."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Police -- ghastly horrible police -- they beat me up, sir."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "The police beat me up, sir."
  • (Patrick Magee) "I know you."
  • (Patrick Magee) "Isn't it your picture in the newspapers? Didn't I see you on the video this morning? Are you not the poor victim of this horrible new technique?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Yes, sir. That's exactly who I am and what I am, sir. A victim, sir."
  • (Patrick Magee) "Then, by God, you've been sent here by providence. Tortured in prison, then thrown out to be tortured by the police. My heart goes out to you, poor, poor boy. Oh, you are not the first to come here in distress. The police are fond of bringing their victims to the outskirts of this village. But it is providential that you, who are also another kind of victim should come here."
  • (Patrick Magee) "Oh, but you're cold and shivering. Julian, draw a bath for this young man."
  • (David Prowse) "Certainly, Frank."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Thank you very much, sir. God bless you, sir."
  • (Patrick Magee) "Food alright?"
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Great sir, great."
  • (Patrick Magee) "Try the wine."

  • (Michael Bates) "Then your toes belong on the other side of it."
  • (Michael Bates) "Shut your filthy hole, you scum."
  • (Michael Bates) "Pick that up and put it down properly."

Sheila Raynor as Mum

  • (Sheila Raynor) "Well, like he says, it's mostly odd things he does. Helping like -- here and there as it might be."
  • (Sheila Raynor) "But you've not been to school all week, son."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Got to rest, Mum. Got to get fit. Otherwise I'm liable to miss a lot more school."

Paul Farrell as Tramp

  • (Paul Farrell) "Can ye spare some cutter, me brothers?"
  • (Paul Farrell) "In Dublin's fair city / Where the girls are so pretty, / I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone. / As she wheel'd her wheel barrow, / Thro' streets broad and narrow, / Crying "cockles and mussels alive alive O." / "alive, alive O. Alive, alive O. / Crying Cockles and Mussels alive, alive O." / As everybody's knowing, You've got a decent tongue, / Whene'er it's set agoing."
  • (Paul Farrell) "Well, go on, do me in you bastard cowards. I don't want to live anyway, not in a stinking world like this."
  • (Malcolm McDowell) "Oh? And what's so stinking about it?"
  • (Paul Farrell) "It's a stinking world because there's no law and order anymore. It's a stinking world because it lets the young get on to the old, like you done. Oh, it's no world for an old man any longer. What sort of a world is it at all? Men on the moon, and men spinning around the earth, and there's not no attention paid to earthly law and order no more."
  • (Paul Farrell) "Could you spare some cutter, me brother?"
