Citáty Gracie Allen

„Who am I to talk? That’s a fair question, and one which deserves a better answer than I can give you.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: Who am I to talk? That’s a fair question, and one which deserves a better answer than I can give you. … Come to think of it, who are you? Whoever you are, I sympathize with you. I sympathize with everybody; that’s what I get for being a candidate myself. Let them call us nonentities. Who cares? A nonenitiy can be just as famous as anybody else if enough people know about him. But let’s leave personalities out of this and just talk about me. Ch. 1 : Government jobs pay big money

„Now, I don’t pretend to know all the answers. I’m just a plain, ordinary, everyday genius who loves her fellow-man whenever possible.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: Now, I don’t pretend to know all the answers. I’m just a plain, ordinary, everyday genius who loves her fellow-man whenever possible. But let me tell you that women are getting very tired of running a poor second to the Forgotten Man, and with all the practice we’ve had around the house the time is ripe for a woman to sweep the country. I’ll make a prediction with my eyes open: that a woman can and will be elected if she is qualified and gets enough votes. Ch. 3 : Why a woman president? Well, why?

„Let’s all pull together and make these United States the grandest place in this whole country.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: Let’s all pull together and make these United States the grandest place in this whole country. I see a vision. A glorious vision. A united people, marching forward shoulder to shoulder, giving their all for the common good, working while I whistle. Ch. 5 : Issues and how to pick them

„Let them call us nonentities. Who cares? A nonenitiy can be just as famous as anybody else if enough people know about him.
But let’s leave personalities out of this and just talk about me.“

„Offend the other candidates, because they’ll be too busy talking to hear you, and besides, they might not vote for you anyway.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: The masses demand a fighting President, and that means you’ve got to offend somebody, because the way I see it, a strong offense is the best attack. So what can you offend? That’s an easy one. Offend the other candidates, because they’ll be too busy talking to hear you, and besides, they might not vote for you anyway. Ch. 6 : How not to offend anybody

„It’s silly to think that Presidents are born, because very few people are 35 years old at birth, and those who are won’t admit it.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: Presidents are made, not born. That’s a good thing to remember. It’s silly to think that Presidents are born, because very few people are 35 years old at birth, and those who are won’t admit it. So if you’re only 16 don’t be discouraged, because it’s only a phase and there’s nothing wrong with you that you won’t outgrow. Ch. 2 : Others make good, why not you?

„I’m the candidate who forgot to take off her hat before she threw it in the ring.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: You remember me. I’m Gracie Allen. I’m the candidate who forgot to take off her hat before she threw it in the ring. Furthermore, I’m the only candidate who got the idea of running myself. All the others had to have somebody else think it up for them, or anyway they say the only reason they’re running is because their many friends kept after them and after them until they finally gave in. Ch. 4 : How to attract attention and be drafted

„Don’t go around offending people just because it can be done sitting down.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: As a well-known great man would have said if he had thought of it, “Don’t go around offending people just because it can be done sitting down.” Ch. 6 : How not to offend anybody

„Today millions of people are living who will never do it again. Millions are being born for the first time–and millions are doing nothing because it’s the best offer they’ve had this week.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: Today millions of people are living who will never do it again. Millions are being born for the first time–and millions are doing nothing because it’s the best offer they’ve had this week. … It is for these people and many others that the Surprise Party is conceived and desecrated, founded upon the principle that everybody is just as good as anybody else, even though they aren’t quite so smart. Ch. 5 : Issues and how to pick them

„I’m having my platform run up by a movie set designer, so it will be very impressive from the front, but not too premanent.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: I’m having my platform run up by a movie set designer, so it will be very impressive from the front, but not too premanent. After all, there’s no sense putting a lot of time and thought into something you’ll have no use for after you’re elected. Ch. 7 : Buying a good used platform

„As we walk hand in hand through the pathways of knowledge, remember that I am giving you freely and without stint the full accumulation of my two months’ experience as a candidate.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: As we walk hand in hand through the pathways of knowledge, remember that I am giving you freely and without stint the full accumulation of my two months’ experience as a candidate. I have on file a complete record of everything I’ve said and done. Ever since I threw my hat in the ring I have had myself shadowed, and the results were very entertaining. The things that go on in those back rooms, you wouldn’t believe. So now we begin our journey together. If you follow these instructions carefully, you will find that every step of your progress, like the path that climbs up and up from the sheltered valley, offers you an ever-wider and more facinating vista, until at last you come out upon the summit of the wrong hill. Ch. 1 : Government jobs pay big money

„So vote early and often. Don’t wait until Election Day.“

—  Gracie Allen
How to Become President (1940), Context: Social Progress is not one of my goals. This country is not a social climber, and besides, the Treasury knows too many people already, if you know what I mean. So vote early and often. Don’t wait until Election Day. I may have found other work by then. Do it now! Ch. 7 : Buying a good used platform

„Goodnight, Gracie.“

—  Gracie Allen
Disputed, It's commonly believed that at the end of stage shows Allen would reply to George Burns line "Say goodnight, Gracie", with "Goodnight, Gracie". Recordings from the time do not have her using this reply.
