My Friend Irma (film) Quotes

Jerry Lewis as Seymour

  • (Marie Wilson) "Oh, Seymour that's a sign of character and I admire you for it. I like men who are offensive and revolting."
  • (Jerry Lewis) "The least you could do is show me some sympathy, Steve. When you was sick, I was very considerate. Remember when the doctor gave you only 30 days to live?"
  • (Dean Martin) "Yes."
  • (Jerry Lewis) "Didn't I go out and get you a calender?"

Hans Conried as Professor Kropotkin

  • (Diana Lynn) "Anything can happen when you live with my friend Irma."

Marie Wilson as Irma Peterson

  • (Marie Wilson) "Al, you're all out of breath. You shouldn't let yourself get that way because breath is good for you."
  • (Marie Wilson) "How often does a girl meet a millionaire with money?"
  • (Marie Wilson) "Oh, well, you know Jane. She wants to marry a man with money, but I don't think money's important. Look, I have you, and you have me, and we both have nothing."
  • (Marie Wilson) "Oh Jane, darling. I called you because I wanted to tell you to be sure not to take a shower."
  • (Diana Lynn) "And why shouldn't I take a shower and be clean like all other normal people?"
  • (Marie Wilson) "Well, you see, I painted the clothes closet, and I hung all the clothes in the shower."
  • (Diana Lynn) "Irma, when you come home tonight would you bring a piece of good, strong rope with you? Because there's something else I want to hang in the shower with the clothes."
  • (Marie Wilson) "Really, Jane? What?"
  • (Diana Lynn) "You. Irma Peterson, how could you be so stupid?"

John Lund as Al

  • (Jerry Lewis) "Rainy day? I got some news for you, Al. I get hungry in clear weather."
  • (John Lund) "How do you like that? They're calling Chicken from the contest and she has to pick a moment like this to knock herself off. That dame never had no consideration."
  • (John Lund) "Now, there's the mirror. Take a look at yourself. Now, if you notice, you have deep expression in your eyes and a very sensitive chin; all the qualities of a legitimate actor; maybe even a great lover."
  • (Jerry Lewis) "Yeah, but isn't my voice too high?"
  • (John Lund) "Not necessarily. You can make love to tall girls."
  • (John Lund) "Okay, Chicken. Get on the phone."
  • (Marie Wilson) "But I don't know what to say."
  • (John Lund) "Just say you're calling for Miss Jane Stacy. She's been delayed, she's only half-dressed, and it would take a load off her mind if you would pick her up at her house instead of at the bar. Got it?"
  • (Marie Wilson) "Got it, word-for-word."
  • (Marie Wilson) "Hello?"
  • (John Lund) "Just to play it safe, let me have it back."
  • (Marie Wilson) "Uh -- "She would like you to pick her up here because she's half-dressed, half-loaded, and would make a very easy pick-up.""

Percy Helton as Mr. Clyde

  • (Percy Helton) "Oh, I should have fired you months ago. But I can't. It would take me years to find out where you keep things."
