Jezebel (film) Quotes

Margaret Lindsay as Amy Bradford Dillard

  • (Julie) "Your wife?"
  • (Margaret Lindsay) "And you're, may I say, "Julie"?"
  • (Julie) "Pres's wife? You're funning."
  • (Preston Dillard) "Hardly."
  • (Julie) "Married? My felicitations, Pres."
  • (Julie) "Amy, of course, it's your right to go; you're his wife. But are you fit to go? Loving him isn't enough. If you gave him all your strength, would it be enough?"
  • (Margaret Lindsay) "I'll make him live, or die with him."
  • (Julie) "Amy -- Amy, do you know the Creole word for fever powder? For food and water? How to talk to a sullen, overworked black boy and make him fear you and help you? Pres's life and yours will hang on things just like that, and you'll both surely die."
  • (Margaret Lindsay) "Then it will have to be that way."
  • (Julie) "It's not a question of proving your love by laying down your life for Pres. Nothing so easy. Have you the knowledge and the human strength to fight for his life and for your own as one will have to fight? Amy, it's no longer you or me."
  • (Margaret Lindsay) "What do you mean?"
  • (Julie) "I'll make him live, I will. Whatever you might do, I can do more, 'cause I know how to fight better than you. Amy, if you knew the horror of that place. It isn't a hospital. It's a desolate island haunted by death. They'll put Pres in an open shed with a hundred others. You must be there with him day and night, watching every breath he draws. You must bathe him, keep him clean, give him drugs, fight for his food and water. You must keep the living from him and the dead. Be there by him with your body between him and Death."

Lew Payton as Uncle Cato

  • (Preston Dillard) "You haven't forgotten how."
  • (Lew Payton) "Me, sir? The head might forget, but the hand remembers. Anyhow, Miss Julie, she's right in behind me all day to fix them just the way you used to like them."
  • (Preston Dillard) "Uncle Cato, how is Miss Julie?"
  • (Lew Payton) "Miss Julie? Why, she's just Miss Julie."
  • (Preston Dillard) "Just the same?"
  • (Lew Payton) "Well, I reckon princesses, they just naturally grows up to be queens, that's all."
  • (Preston Dillard) "Uncle Cato, we've known each other a long time. I'm back now. Home. It's a special occasion."
  • (Preston Dillard) "Will you join me in one?"
  • (Lew Payton) "Why, why, Mr. Pres, it ain't hardly proper, but I'll kindly take one out in the pantry and bless you and Miss Julie."

  • (Theresa Harris) "Yas'm, Miss Julie. Right nice and pretty."
  • (Margaret Lindsay) "Right nice and pretty?"
  • (Margaret Lindsay) "Pretty enough for Ted's grave."

Ann Codee as Mme. Poulard

  • (Aunt Belle) "Pres has always loved you in white. If he isn't simply bowled over by it, I won't know what to think."
  • (Julie) "Wait a minute. Bring that over here. Saucy, isn't it?"
  • (Aunt Belle) "And vulgar."

  • (Aunt Belle) "Child, you're out of your mind. You know you can't wear red to the Olympus Ball."
  • (Julie) "Can't I? I'm going to. This is 1852, dumpling, 1852. Not the Dark Ages. Girls don't have to simper around in white just because they're not married."
  • (Aunt Belle) "In New Orleans, they do. Julie, you'd insult every woman on the floor."
  • (Ann Codee) "Mademoiselle, your aunt, she's right. Look how beautiful this dress is."
  • (Julie) "Will you kindly get me out of this?"
  • (Aunt Belle) "Julie, you can't be serious."
  • (Julie) "Never more serious in my life."
  • (Aunt Belle) "But Julie, think of Pres."
  • (Julie) "That's just exactly what I am thinking of."

Eddie Anderson as Gros Bat

  • (Eddie Anderson) "But, Miss Julie. Miss Julie, Miss Julie, ma'am. It's too risky for a white lady, Miss Julie. Me, I kind of mix in with the night. But them sheriff folks ain't fooling. They're shooting first and asking afterwards."
  • (Julie) "Bat, you hear me? We're going."
