Rosemary: I dreamed someone was raping me, I think it was someone inhuman.
Guy: Thanks a lot. Whatsa matter?
Rosemary: Nothing.
Guy: I didn't want to miss the night.
Rosemary: We could have done it this morning or tonight. Last night wasn't the only split-second.
Guy: I was a little bit loaded myself, you know.


Guy: [on Rosemary's decision to switch doctors] You know what Dr. Hill is? He's a Charlie Nobody, that's who he is!
Rosemary: I'm tired of hearing about how great Dr. Saperstein is!
Guy: Well, I won't let you do it Ro.
Rosemary: Why not?
Guy: Well, because... because it wouldn't be fair to Saperstein.
Rosemary: Not fair to Saper - what about what's fair to me?

Roman: No Pope ever visits a city where the newspapers are on strike.
Minnie: I heard he's gonna postpone and wait till it's over.
Guy: Well, that's show-biz.
Roman: [chuckling with his wife] That's exactly what it is. All the costumes or rituals, all religions.
Minnie: Uh, I think we're offending Rosemary
Rosemary: Oh no
Roman: You're not religious are you my dear?
Rosemary: I was brought up a Catholic. Now I don't know. He is the pope.
Roman: You don't need to have respect for him because he pretends that he's holy... A good picture of the hypocrisy behind organized religion was given I thought in Luther.

Mr. Nicklas: Are you a doctor?
Rosemary: He is an actor.
Mr. Nicklas: Oh! An actor! We're very popular with actors! Have I seen you in anything?
Guy: Well, I did "Hamlet" a while back, didn't I, Liz? Then we did "The Sandpiper"...
Rosemary: He's joking. He was in "Luther" and "Nobody Loves an Albatross" and a lot of TV and commercials.
Mr. Nicklas: That's where the money is, right? The commercials.
Guy: And the artistic thrill too!

Dr. Sapirstein: Come with us quietly, Rosemary. Don't argue or make a scene. Because if you say anything more about witches or witchcraft, we're gonna be forced to take you to a mental hospital. You don't want that, do you? So just put your shoes on.

Laura-Louise: [referring to the tannis-root charm] You'll get used to the smell before you know it.

[Rosemary enters, carrying a knife]
Mrs. Gilmore: Rosemary! Go back to bed. You know you're not supposed to be up and around.
Japanese man: Is that the mother?
Roman: Rosemary -
Rosemary: Shut up.
Roman: Rosemary -
Rosemary: Shut up! You're in Dubrovnik. I don't hear you. [She slowly walks over to the cradle, sees her child in the bassinet - her eyes widen in terror] What have you done to it? What have you done to its eyes?
Roman: He has his father's eyes.
Rosemary: What are you talking about?! Guy's eyes are normal! What have you done to him? You maniacs!
Roman: Satan is his father, not Guy. He came up from hell and begat a son of mortal woman. [Coven members cheer 'Hail, Satan!'] Satan is his father and his name is Adrian. He shall overthrow the mighty and lay waste their temples. He shall redeem the despised and wreak vengeance in the name of the burned and the tortured. Hail, Adrian! Hail, Satan! Hail, Satan!
Minnie: He chose you out of all the world - out of all the women in the whole world, he chose you. He arranged things, because he wanted you to be the mother of his only living son.
Roman: His power is stronger than stronger! His might shall last longer than longer.
Japanese man: Hail, Satan!
Rosemary: No! It can't be! No!
Minnie: Go look at his hands.
Laura-Louise: And his feet.
Rosemary: Oh, God! [She drops her knife]
Roman: God is dead! Satan lives! The year is One, the year is One! God is dead! Why don't you help us out, Rosemary? Be a real mother to Adrian. You don't have to join if you don't want to. Just be a mother to your baby. Minnie and Laura-Louise are too old. It's not right. Think about it, Rosemary.
Rosemary: Oh, God!
Laura-Louise: Aw, shut up with your Oh, Gods or we'll kill ya - milk or no milk!
Mrs. Gilmore: You shut up. Rosemary's his mother, so you show some respect.
Roman: [to Argyron Stavropolous, one of the guests who has just arrived] Come my friend. Come see him. Come see the child.
Guy: They promised me you wouldn't be hurt and you haven't been...really. I mean, supposing you had the baby and you lost it? Wouldn't that be the same? And we're getting so much in return, Ro. [She spits in his face.]
Roman: Oh, Guy, let me introduce you to Argyron Stavropolous.
Argyron: How proud you must be. Is this the mother?
Minnie: [She gives Rosemary a cup and saucer.] Here, drink this. You'll feel a little better.
Rosemary: What's in it, tannis root?
Minnie: Nothing's in it, just plain ordinary Lipton's tea. You drink it.
[The baby starts to cry. Rosemary watches as Laura-Louise roughly rocks the bassinet, and then slowly walks over.]
Laurie-Louise: [To Rosemary] Get away from here! Roman!
Rosemary: You're rocking him too fast.
Laurie-Louise: Sit down. [To Roman] Get her out of here. Put her where she belongs.
Rosemary: You're rocking him too fast. That's why he's crying.
Laura-Louise: Oh, mind your own business.
Roman: Let Rosemary rock him. Go on, sit down with the others. Let Rosemary rock him.
Laura-Louise: Well, she's liable to -
Roman: Sit down with the others, Laura-Louise. [To Rosemary] Rock him.
Rosemary: Are you trying to get me to be his mother?
Roman: Aren't you his mother?

Terry Gionoffrio: [about the Castevets] They picked me up off the sidewalk, literally... I was starving and on dope and doing a lot of other things. They're childless though. I'm like the daughter they never had. At first, I thought they wanted me for some kind of a sex thing but they turned out to be like real grandparents... I'd be dead now if it wasn't for them. That's an absolute fact. Dead or in jail.

Elise Dunstan: Why, congratulations, papa!
Guy: Thanks! There was nothing to it.

Dr. Sapirstein's secretary: He has the same smell once in a while, whatever it is, and when he does, oh boy.

Rosemary's friend: [about Dr. Sapirstein] He sounds like a sadistic nut... Pain like that is a warning that something isn't right. Go see Dr. Hill. Go see anybody besides that... nut. You can't go on suffering like this.

Are you aware that the Bramford had a rather unpleasant reputation around the turn of the century? It's where the Trench sisters conducted their little dietary experiments. And Keith Kennedy held his parties. Adrian Marcato lived there too... The Trench sisters were two proper Victorian ladies - they cooked and ate several young children including a niece...Adrian Marcato practiced witchcraft. He made quite a splash in the 90s by announcing that he'd conjured up the living devil. Apparently, people believed him so they attacked and nearly killed him in the lobby of the Bramford... Later, the Keith Kennedy business began and by the 20s, the house was half empty... World War II filled the house up again... They called it Black Bramford... This house has a high incidence of unpleasant happenings. In '59, a dead infant was found wrapped in newspaper in the basement...

Guy: [about Rosemary's haircut] What the hell is that?
Rosemary: I've been to Vidal Sassoon.
Guy: You mean you actually paid for it?

Rosemary: I look awful.
Guy: What are you talking about? You look great. It's that haircut that looks awful.

Dr. Sapirstein: [telling Rosemary her baby died] It was in the wrong position. In a hospital, I might have been able to do something about it, but you wouldn't listen.
Rosemary: You're lying. It didn't die. You took it. You're lying. You witches. You're lying! You're lying! You're lying! You're lying!
