The Adventures of Hajji Baba Quotes

Donald Randolph as Caliph

  • (Donald Randolph) "I fear for you. You are so innocent."

Paul Picerni as Nurel-Din

  • (Paul Picerni) "I intend to possess all of Persia. My armies have gone as far south as Karwan and as far north as Samarkand. Ispahan lies across the trade route from Basra to Baghdad and Tehran. Ispahan I must and shall have."

  • (Unnamed) "Captured in the Great Pass on the short route to Nashed. We were set upon by the Turkoman women."
  • (John Derek) "Your tale is difficult to believe my friend. I hear these escaped harem girls are creatures of delicate beauty."
  • (Unnamed) "Do not be misled, young man. They're beautiful, yes, and enchanting, but they're sirens; cold. Their hearts are full of hatred. They rose up out of the hills like demons and rode us down. Those of us who were not killed in the fighting were hung up for the vultures."
  • (Unnamed) "Why are you not satisfied to be like your father, Hajji? You are a good barber."
  • (John Derek) "True. But why, I ask myself, must I remain a barber? Take the sheik's chief favorite, Ismail asa Gul; is he better spoken than I?"
  • (Unnamed) "But he is the favorite."
  • (John Derek) "Well, then, the famous Lord Treasurer, who fills the king's coffers with gold, yet does not forget his own. What was he? The son of a grocer."

  • (John Derek) "But I hear the Princess Faksia --"
  • (Thomas Gomez) "-- Is beautiful, eh? I hear so, too, but as you yourself said this morning, she's cruel and selfish."
  • (Unnamed) "And I have it from one of her handmaidens that she's not even beautiful. Her mouth is large, she has no salt in her complexion, her teeth are crooked and, as for her waist, it is as fat as an elephant's. Her feet; a camel has smaller."
  • (Elaine Stewart) "That's a lie."

  • (Thomas Gomez) "I have an ancient prejudice against promises."
  • (Elaine Stewart) "There is some love you cannot buy."

  • (Elaine Stewart) "Perhaps you are right. Perhaps legends are for barbers and love for princesses."
  • (Elaine Stewart) "Leave him a horse."
  • (Paul Picerni) "A bargain is a bargain. You promised him an emerald, not a horse."
  • (Elaine Stewart) "Ow."
  • (John Derek) "What's the matter?"
  • (Elaine Stewart) "The ring."
  • (Elaine Stewart) "Barber, you are fortunate we are not in Ispahan or I would have --"
  • (John Derek) "-- me flogged? That is your answer to all but flattery. You wish to silence everyone by threats. Is that what it is to be a princess?"

  • (Amanda Blake) "I prefer to choose rather than be chosen."
  • (Amanda Blake) "To women of courage we give a choice. Stay with us or we will sell you in Bokara to the highest bidder."
