–What’s your financial picture?
–Not great.

–Who are those guys? Do they work for me?
–Everybody works for you, Howard.

–Will you marry me?
–You’re too crazy for me.

Bring me the milk.

Don’t tell me I can’t do it!

Don’t tell me it can’t be done!

Get that crazy bitch away from me!

He owns Pan-Am. He owns commerce. But he does not own the sky.

Howard, there’s a rather alarming mountain heading our way.

I ‘m gonna attempt to be honest here. I mean, my reputation’s being destroyed, so I might as well lay the cards on the table. Senator Brewster, if you hadn’t of gone too far overboard, if you hadn’t put the red hot iron in my side, I might have been willing to take a shellacking in this publicity spree of yours. I might have been willing to sit back and take a certain amount of abuse simply because, well, I am only a private citizen. Whereas you are a senator with all sorts of powers. But I think this goddamn circus has gone on long enough.

I care very much about aviation.

I have one more thing to say here to this committee. And that has to do with the Hercules. Now, I am supposed to be many things which are not complimentary. I am supposed to be capricious. I have been called a playboy. I’ve even been called an eccentric, but I do not believe I have the reputation of being a liar. Needless to say, the Hercules was a monumental undertaking. It is the largest plane ever built. It is over 5 stories tall with a wingspan longer than a football field. That’s more than a city block. Now, I put the sweat of my life into this. I got my reputation all rolled up in it. I have stated several times that if the Hercules fails to fly I will leave this country and never come back. And I mean it. Now senator Brewster, you can subpoena me you can arrest me, you can even claim I’ve folded up and take a run-out powder, but, well, I’ve had just about enough of this nonsense. Good afternoon.

I’ll be seeing you.

I’ll build a stairway to Paradise.

I’ll have him dragged here to Washington. I want to see the whites of his lies.

I’m afraid you don’t know how the aviation business works, senator. See, wining and dining Air Force dignitaries is common in our business. It’s because we all want the big contracts. All the major aircraft companies do it. I don’t know whether it’s a good system or not, I just know its not illegal. You, senator, you are the lawmaker. If you pass a law that states no one can entertain Air Force officers, well, hell I’d be happy to abide by it.

If you let me testify at that hearing, the whole world will see what he’s become. They should remember him for what he was.

It’s just movie sex.

Leave the big ideas to me.

Love what you’ve done with the place.

Me, I keep healthy. I take 7 showers a day to keep clean, also because I’m so vulgarly referred to as ‘outdoors-y’. Well, I’m not ‘outdoors-y’, I’m athletic. I sweat! There it is, now we both know the sordid truth: I sweat, and you’re deaf. Aren’t we a fine pair of misfits?

Movies are movies, Howard. Not life.


See, the thing is, I care very much about aviation. It has been the great joy of my life. That’s why I put my own money into these planes. And I’ve lost millions, senator. And I’ll go on losing millions. Its just what I do. Now, if I’ve lost a lot of the governments money during the war, I hope folks will put that into perspective. See more than 60 other airplanes ordered from such firms as Lockheed, Douglas, Northrop and Boeing never saw action either. IN all, more than $800 million was spent during the war on planes that never flew. Over 6 billion on other weapons that were never delivered. Yet, Hughes Aircraft, with her 56 million is the only firm under investigation here. Now I cannot help but think that has a little more to do with TWA than planes that did not fly.

Show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints,
show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints,
show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints,
show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints,
show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints, show me the blueprints.

Show me the blueprints.

The way of the future.

We’re not like everyone else. Too many sharp angles. Too many eccentricities. We have to be very careful not to let people in or they’ll make us into freaks.

Welcome to Hollywood.

When I grow up…I want to fly the fastest plane ever built. And make the biggest movies ever. And be the richest man in the world.

You feel like a little adventure?

You tell him he can kiss head shake) both sides.

You want to go to war with me?

You’re not a Republican, are you?
