  • “There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it.”
    Ralph Fiennes - M. Gustave
  • “- M. Gustave: The beginning of the end of the end of the beginning has begun. A sad finale played off-key on a broken-down saloon piano in the outskirts of a forgotten ghosttown. I'd rather not bear witness to such blasphemy.
    - Zero: Me neither.
    - M. Gustave: The Grand Budapest has become a troops' barracks. I shall never cross its threshold...” (continue)

  • “- M. Gustave: She was dynamite in the sack, by the way.
    - Zero: ...She was 84, Monsieur Gustave.
    - M. Gustave: Mmm, I've had older. When you're young, it's all filet steak, but as the years go by, you have to move on to the cheap cuts. Which is fine with me, because I like those. More flavorful, or so they say.”

  • “People think the writer's imagination is always at work, that he's constantly inventing an endless supply of incidents and episodes; that he simply dreams up his stories out of thin air. In point of fact, the opposite is true. Once the public knows you're a writer, they bring the characters and events to you. And as long as you maintain your...” (continue)(continue reading)

  • “If I die first, and I almost certainly will, you will be my sole heir. There's not much in the kitty, except a set of ivory-backed hairbrushes and my library of romantic poetry, but when the time comes, these will be yours. Along with whatever we haven't already spent on whores and whiskey.”
    Ralph Fiennes - M. Gustave
  • “There's really no point in doing anything in life because it's all over in the blink of an eye, and the next thing you know, rigor mortis sets in.”
    Ralph Fiennes - M. Gustave
  • “- M. Gustave: Oh, dear God, what have you done to your fingernails?
    - Madame D.: I beg your pardon?
    - M. Gustave: This diabolical varnish; the color is completely wrong!
    - Madame D.: Oh really? Don't you like it?
    - M. Gustave: It's not that I don't like it; I am physically repulsed.”

    Ralph Fiennes - M. Gustave
    Tilda Swinton - Madame D.
  • “It's quite a thing, winning the loyalty of a woman like that for nineteen consecutive seasons.”

  • “When the destiny of a great fortune is at stake, men's greed spreads like a poison in the bloodstream. Uncles, nephews, cousins, in-laws of increasingly tenuous connection. The old woman's distantrelations had come foraging out of the woodwork.”
    F. Murray Abraham - Mr. Moustafa
  • “I must say, I find that girl utterly delightful. Flat as a board, enormous birthmark the shape of Mexico over half her face, sweating for hours on end in that sweltering kitchen, while Mendl, genius though he is, looms over her like a hulking gorilla. Yet without question, without fail, always and invariably, she's exceedingly lovely.”
    Ralph Fiennes - M. Gustave
  • “- Dmitri: If I learn you ever once laid a finger on my mother's body, living or dead, I swear to God, I'll cut your throat! You hear me?
    - M. Gustave: I thought I was supposed to be a fucking faggot.
    - Dmitri: You are, but you're bisexual.”

    Adrien Brody - Dmitri
    Ralph Fiennes - M. Gustave
  • “- Zero: What happened?
    - M. Gustave: What happened, my dear Zero, is I beat the living shit out of a sniveling little runt called Pinky Bandinski, who had the gall to question my virility. Because, if there's one thing we've learned from penny dreadfuls, it's that when you find yourself in a place like this, you must never be a candy ass; you've...” (continue)

  • - M. Gustave: I'm not angry with Serge; you can't blame someone for their basic lack of moral fiber. He's a frightened little yellow-bellied coward. It's not his fault, is it?
    - Zero: I don't know, it depends.
    - M. Gustave: Well, you can say that about most anything, "it depends". Of course it depends.
    - Zero: Of course it depends, of course it... (continue)

  • “What is a lobby boy? A lobby boy is completely invisible, yet always in sight. A lobby boy remembers what people hate. A lobby boy anticipates the client's needs before the needs are needed. A lobby boy is, above all, discreet to a fault. Our guests know that their deepest secrets, some of which are frankly rather unseemly, will go with us to...” (continue)(continue reading)

  • “Rudeness is merely an expression of fear. People fear they won't get what they want. The most dreadful and unattractive person only needs to be loved, and they will open up like a flower.”

  • “- Pinky: Me and the boys talked it over. We think you're a really straight fellow.
    - M. Gustave: Well, I've never been accused of that before, but I appreciate the sentiment.”

    Florian Lukas - Pinky
    Ralph Fiennes - M. Gustave
