Default Favorite Lines from A Hard Day's Night

I've seen this movie so many times, and it's always so much fun to watch!
What are your favorite lines or moments from the film?




Reporter: What would you call that hairstyle you're wearing?
George: Arthur.


Reporter: How did you find America?
John: Turned left at Greenland.


John: We've broken out! Ah, the blessed freedom of it all! Have you got a nail file, these handcuffs are killin me! I was framed, I'm innocent, I don't want to go!
Paul: Sorry for disturbing you, girls!
John: I betchya can't guess what I was in for!
[laughs psychotically]


George: I wouldn't be seen dead in them. They're dead grotty.


George: Hey, you won't interfere with the basic rugged concept of me personality, will you madam?


[Huge stacks of fan mail is delivered]
Ringo: None for me, then?
Norm: Sorry.
John: [handing Ringo one letter] Here, this'll keep you busy.


George: What's the matter with you, then?
Ringo: It's his grandfather. I can tell he doesn't like me. It's cause I'm little.
George: Ah, you've got an inferiority complex, you have.
Ringo: Yeah, I know, that's why I play the drums - it's me active compensatory factor.


[Paul, John and George come out of the studio, looking for Ringo]
Paul: Let's split up and look for him!
[Paul walks away, George and John follow him. Paul turns around]
John: We've become a limited company.


Man on Train: And we'll have that thing off as well, thank you.
Ringo: But...
Man on Train: An elementary knowledge of the Railway Acts would tell you that I'm perfectly within my rights.
Paul: Yeah, but we want to hear it, and there's more of us than you. We're a community, like, a majority vote. Up the workers and all that stuff!
Man on Train: Then I suggest you take that damned thing to the corridor or some other part of the train where you obviously belong.
John: [Leaning over to the man] Give us a kiss.


John: [cuts tailor's tape measure with scissors and in girly voice] I now declare this bridge open.

George and that thing with the grotty shirts.

John telling the old dude that he'd be "a proper citizen of Boston...instead...lonely old man from Liverpool." The old dude a proper citizon of Boston - I like that!

Grandfather: It's your nose you know. Fans are funny that way, they take a dislike to things. They'll pick on a nose.
Ringo: Aw... you pick on your own.

Man on train: I fought the war for people like you!
Ringo: I bet you're sorry you won.

George (looking at semi-abstact fish sculpture: You don't see many of these nowadays, do you?

Paul: What's that supposed to mean?
George: I don't know, it just sounded distinguished-like.

John: They usually reckon dogs more than people in England.

I'll add more later, but I love all of John's goofy dialogue in the bathtub, especially when he's alone singing, making sound effects & his German chatter: "Guten Morgen, Mein Herr! Können Sie noch einen Tee haben?"

Some already mentioned.

John: "We'll get you the best lawyer green stamps'll buy."

Grandfather: "I'm very clean."
John: "Are you?" xD

Ringo: Funny really, I never thought about it, but I bet being middle aged and old takes up most of your time doesn't it?

And pretty much the whole book scene... n__n

And Ringo in that darn fuzzy hat 8D I know it's not a line... but I'd watch the whole thing just to see him in that hat x3

"What're you up to Ringo?"
Ringo: "Page five."

Ringo: "WE'RE OUT!!"

George: "Sorry we were hurting your field mister..."

George: "Ey Ringo, you know what's happened to me?
Ringo: "No I don't. You wanna stop looking so scornful, it's twistin your face.

Ringo: Southerner!

"If he says that again I'll... strike him."

"Right, on your way."
Ringo: "What??"

Ringo: "I demand to see my solicitor."
Cop: "What's his name?"
Ringo: "Well if you're gonna get technical about it..."

Fashion Guy: "You can be fired cheeky baby."
George: "I don't care."

George: "Oh yeah, the lads frequently sit down and watch her for a giggle... We turn the sound down on her and say rude things."

I should probably stop now. xP

Girl, you just like seeing the man underdressed!

You also like the adjectives George uses to describe the man's
tongue and no doubt that fires your bawdy imagination, Cloud!

Norm: "Ringo, you watch over him."
Ringo: "Aye Norm..."
Norm: "Do I have to raise my voice?"
Ringo: "All right. Come on Granddad... I'm a drummer, not a wet nurse."

I also love the shaving scene. C'mon BB, get your mind out of the gutter! :P

Paul; Well everyone's entitled to two aren't they? Well this is my other one.

Shake: "You got on all right, then?"
John: "No."

Shake: "I can't help it, I'm just taller than you are!"

Granddad: "Get out ladies! Get out while you can!"

John: "Please sir, can I sir have one to surge with sir, please sir?"

John: "It's gotten around you're a big spender."

Ringo: "That's mine!!"

George: "He's right you know."

John: You're too old.

Paul: Look, I'm his grandfather, I mean-

John: "I could listen to him for hours."

John: "The third bit more BANG!!"

Norm: "Everybody happy?"
Everyone: -____-

John: Don't cane me sir, I was led astray!

J:'Ah, there he goes, look at 'im, I bet if his wife doesn't know about her... If he even got a wife, look at his sweater.'
P:'You never know she mighta knitted it.'
J:'Aw, she's knitted him.'

Granddad: It is my considered opinion that you're a bunch of sissies.
