Quotes from On Golden Pond (1981)
Billy Ray: So, I heard you turned 80 today. Norman: Is that what you heard? Billy Ray: Yeah. Man, that's really old. Norman: You should meet my father. Billy Ray: Your father's still alive? Norman: No, but you should meet him.
"I don't like horses."--Norman
[to Ethel] Norman: Wanna dance or would you rather just suck face?
"The loons! They're welcoming us back!"--Ethel Thayer (Katharine Hepburn) to Norman Thayer (Henry Fonda)
"You're my knight in shining armor, and don't you forget it. You're gonna get back on that horse, and I'm going to be right behind you."--Ethel to Norman
Ethel: That son of a bitch happens to be my husband.
Billy Ray: A canoe! Just like the Indians used. Norman: Actually, the Indians used a different grade of aluminum.
Ethel: Listen to me, mister. You're my knight in shining armor. Don't forget it. You're going to get back on that horse and I'm going to be right behind you, holding on tight and away we're going to go, go, go!
Norman: "Ethel Thayer." It sounds like I'm lisping, doesn't it?
Chelsea Thayer Wayne: It just seems like we've been mad at each other for so long... Norman: I didn't think we were mad; I just thought we didn't like each other.
Bill Ray: You're having a good time, aren't you? Norman: Huh? Bill Ray: Chelsea told me all about how you like to have a good time messing with people's heads. She does too, sometimes. Me, sometimes I can get into it. Sometimes not. You know, it's not imperative that you and I become friends. I thought it would be nice. I'm sure you're a fascinating person, and I thought it would be fascinating to get to know you, but that's obviously not an easy task. So you just go ahead and be as... poopy, to quote Chelsea, as you want to be, and I'll be as nice and as civil as I can be. But I think there's one thing you should know while you're jerking me around and making me feel like an asshole. I know *precisely* what you're up to. And I'll take just so much of it. Now what is the bottom line on this illict sleeping together question? Norman: Very good. That was a good speech. Bottom line, huh? You're a bottom line man? All right, here's the bottom line... O-kay. Bill Ray: Huh? Norman: You seem like a nice man. A bit verbose, but nice... Bill Ray: Thank you. Norman: ...and you're right about me. I am fascinating. Bill Ray: I'm sure you are. Norman: But let's get back to the sex thing... anything you want to know, just ask me. Go ahead. Bill Ray: No, no... I just, uh, wanted to clear that up. Chelsea and I *can* sleep together. Norman: Sure, sure, please do. [pauses, resumes reading] Norman: Just don't let Ethel catch you.
Ethel: Don't you think that everyone looks back on their childhood with a certain amount of bitterness and regret? It doesn't have to ruin your life!
Ethel: Come here, Norman. Hurry up. The loons! The loons! They're welcoming us back.
