A cat's a better mother than you.


What a woman.

Look at them, all these poor tragic people. The South sinking to its knees. It'll never rise again. "The Cause!" The cause of living in the past is dying right in front of us.

Take a good look my dear. It's an historic moment you can tell your grandchildren about — how you watched the Old South fall one night.

You go into the arena alone. The lions are hungry for you.

I've always thought a good lashing with a buggy whip would benefit you immensely.

When I think you could have had my millions if you'd just waited a little while. How fickle is woman.

You still think you're the Belle of the county don't you? That you're the cutest little trick in shoe leather and that every man you meet is dying of love for you.

Boys aren't any use to anybody. Don't you think I'm proof of that?

[to Scarlett] I've always loved you. But you've never given me a chance to show it.

Observe my hands my dear...I could tear you to pieces with them. And I'd do it if it'd take Ashley out of your mind forever. But it wouldn't.

I don't want it any more than you do! No woman would want the child of a cad like you! I wish.... I wish it were anybody's child but yours!

Marriage, fun? Fiddle-dee-dee, fun for men, you mean.

Great balls of fire. Don't bother me anymore, and don't call me sugar.
