Delilah Quotes:

  • Delilah: If this album hits, I'll drop him like a greased pig.

  • Samson: The oldest trick in the world. Silk trap, baited with a woman.

    Delilah: You know a better bait, Samson? Men *always* respond.

  • Tubal: [holding Delilah and trading her for Semadar] Look! Here! Samson. My other daughter. Take her. She'll make you a much better wife. She's fairer than Semadar, and much, much more beautiful.

    Samson: You give me a turnip for a...

    Tubal: Wait, wait Samson. This one is a queen among women. Samson, look. Look. Have you ever seen eyes like that? So full of love for you? See the whiteness of her skin, smooth as a young dove's. Oh she'll grow into a rare blossom.

    Samson: She'll grow into a thornbush!

    Delilah: [grasps Samson] Did a thornbush steal the chariot that took you to the lion? Did a thornbush tell the Saran how you killed it with your bare hands? No, I did, and he believed me, then you chose Semadar.

    Samson: Take your claws out of me!

    Delilah: You'll never get them out of you. I made Ahtur steal the riddle's secret from Semadar. I lied to stop you from marrying her. I'll kill to keep you. You're the only thing in the world I want.

    Samson: [to Tubal] Hold this fork-tongued adder before I put a heel on her.

    Delilah: If you crush the life out of me I'd kiss you with my dying breath!

    Samson: [to Tubal] And you want me to marry this wild cat?

  • Delilah: [looking upon Samson in the gristmill, not knowing that he has been blinded] He has not dared to look at me.

    Saran of Gaza: He cannot see you.

    Delilah: I'll make him see me.

    [stands in front of Samson, slowly noticing his blinded eyes, which fill her with deep remorse]

    Delilah: He's blind. He can never see me again.

    Saran of Gaza: Does that disturb you?

    Delilah: I had your promise.

    Saran of Gaza: No blade has touched his skin. No drop of his blood was shed.

    Delilah: [sobs] You... you played with words to rob him of his eyes.

    Saran of Gaza: It was you who betrayed him, not I.

    Delilah: He was captive, in chains, yet the Lord of the Five Cities could not show him mercy?

    Saran of Gaza: Did you show him mercy, Delilah? You wanted vengeance. You have it.

  • Delilah: [being tormented by the Saran's words that she "cannot undo" her betrayal of Samson, his subsequent blinding, and his bondage of grinding grain in the gristmill] I can! I can! Round and round, day after day, month after month. He never stops! I'm being crushed like the grain beneath the stone. This night must end sometime. O God of Samson, help me. He said you are everywhere. That you are almighty. Hear me. Give back the light to his eyes. Take my sight for his. O god of Samson... Help me.

  • Delilah: You love him. Women cannot deceive each other. It is in your face when you look at him. You want him for yourself.

    Miriam: Yes, I love him. In his face, I see all that is strong and good. His name is like a cry of hope for us. I've dreamed that someday Samson would take me for his wife. But he's never looked upon me as a woman.

    Delilah: His face... his name... shadows on the wall. You think that is love? You worship him with prayers and downcast eyes. I love him as a man of flesh and blood!

    Miriam: He is not leaving you for me. There is a higher voice that speaks through him, and he will always answer its call. Even your treacherous beauty cannot turn him from it.

    Delilah: I cannot fight against his god. But no woman will take him from me.

  • [Samson has chosen Semadar over Delilah as his bride]

    Delilah: I hate him.

    Tubal: Because he's a Danite?

    Delilah: Because he's a fool!

    Tubal: Most men are, Delilah. There's nothing you can do about it.


    Delilah: [smiles craftily] Sometimes a bee can move an ox.

  • Saran of Gaza: Every cup of water, every morsel of food, must be guided into his hands. The mighty Samson, betrayed by a woman.

    Delilah: No.

    Saran of Gaza: Blinded, ridiculed, pitied.

    Delilah: No, I did not blind him!

    Saran of Gaza: [Delilah tries to go to Samson, but the Saran holds her back] Are you going to be as big a fool as you've made of him? He'd kill you. You cannot undo what has been done.

  • Hisham: [From afar, Delilah observes her home going up in flames] Turn away, little mistress. Don't look anymore. All you have in the world is ashes and death.

    Delilah: [turns around and sobs] Samson lives.

    Hisham: May his flesh rot from his bones.

    Delilah: Be still, old fool. If it takes all my life, I'll make him curse the day he was born.

    Hisham: He called you a fork-tongued adder.

    Delilah: He's going to feel its sting.

    Hisham: [holds Delilah's hand] What strength can these hands have against him?

    Delilah: Perhaps greater than a lion's and softer than a dove's. I'll find strength, Hisham. Strength to destroy him!

  • Samson: Delilah...

    Delilah: No, I will not listen.

    Samson: But you asked me to...

    Delilah: I don't want to hear you.

    Samson: Three times you plagued me to tell you.

    Delilah: And three times you've lied to me. You said new ropes that had never been used would hold you.

    Samson: Who knows the strength of a rope that's never been used?

    Delilah: Then you told me your strength would go if I wove your hair to the web of my loom. Now look at my loom.

    Samson: I'd rather look at you.

    Delilah: It's no use, Samson. You'll always find a new trick to deceive me. The night I came to the Valley of Sorek, you wanted to send me away. You were right. It is better that I go.

  • Delilah: No man leaves Delilah.

  • Delilah: They're devils.

    Saran of Gaza: No, they're very human. The weak always ban together to pull down the strong.

    Lord of Gath: Your lion has become a mouse.

    Saran of Gaza: Changed by the magic of love.

  • Targil: [about Samson's riddle] That scurvy riddle has no answer.

    Delilah: Every riddle has an answer, only you are all to stupid to find it.

    Gammad: Find it? Where?

    Delilah: [pours wine into Gammad's cup] Not in your wine cup, Gammad.

  • Delilah: The wine of parting is bitter, Samson.

    Samson: Not as bitter as blood.

  • Prince Ahtur: This Samson has some unknown power, some secret that gives him superhuman strength. No man can stand against him.

    Delilah: Perhaps he'll fall before a woman. Even Samson's strength must have a weakness. There isn't a man in the world who would not share his secrets with some woman.

  • Delilah: I've never really felt this way before.

    Chance: Me neither. I wanted to say the same thing to you all day, but then I thought you'd laugh at me and then you'd think I'm a dork.

    [Delilah laughs]

    Chance: Geez, you are laughing at me!

    Delilah: No, I'm laughing with you.

    Chance: I knew that.

  • Delilah: Hi

    Chance: Don't you hi me. First, you chase me, then you try to kill me, then you kiss me? What's the game?

    Delilah: Game? I don't have a game. Look, I was only chasing you because your friends back in the alley asked me to, okay?

    Chance: My friends, huh? So tell me, what are my friends' names?

    Delilah: Shadow and Sassy.

    Chance: Huh! Lucky guess. Okay, show me the secret paw shake.

    Delilah: Secret paw shake? They didn't show me any secret paw shake.

    Chance: Aha! They didn't, huh? Good, because there ain't one. Now explain that kiss.

    Delilah: Kiss? That was no kiss. Friendly lick, maybe.

    Chance: Friendly? Boy, is that an understatement.

    Delilah: Okay, let's try this again. I'm Delilah, Chance.

    Chance: Delilah Chance? Wow, your last name is the same as my first name!

    Delilah: Boy, good thing you're cute.

  • The Countess: Go with the real guy, honey, we're limited.

  • Delilah: Casey, when did you become Sigourney Weaver?

  • Casey: God, you can be such a...

    Delilah: What?

    Casey: Pretty cool human being when you're not being a first class grade A bitch.

    Delilah: Are you hitting on me Casey?

    Casey: No. No, I just think that you can be cool. Sometimes. This not being one of them.

  • Delilah: Your fanclub is here.

    Casey: Network or local?

    Delilah: Both.

    Casey: Will everybody calm down, please?

  • [Stan wants to quit football to study]

    Delilah: You're not good at studying Stan, you're good at football. You should stick to what you're good at.

    Stan: Yeah, I've always been good at football, and basketball, and every other sport I've tried. I think maybe it's time I should try something I'm not so good at, something different.

    Delilah: And what am I supposed to do while you're on a yellow book quest for a brain?

    Stan: What?

    Delilah: The accepted social order is that head cheerleaders date star quarterbacks, not academic wannabees.

    Stan: Don't be so superficial...

    Delilah: Superficial... four syllables, that's really good Stan, you're on your way. Let me know how the cure for cancer goes.

    Stan: I was hoping you'd be with me on this...

  • Delilah: [to Casey] You're that geeky Stephen King kid - there's one of you in every school.

  • Zeke: Now, you, Delilah.

    Delilah: No. Her first.

    Delilah: Yeah, and I'm Portuguese. Who cares?

  • Delilah: Hello Casey. Where ya gonna go, huh? The class wuss... eternal little loser who comes to school everyday knowing this is it. You've been labeled 'pathetic' since first grade and you're afraid it's going to bleed over for the rest of your life. Well we can stop it Casey. We can help you belong. Isn't that what you really want?

    Casey: Please don't do this Delilah.

    Delilah: I haven't been this happy since... since... before my dad died. You know you want me Casey. Come on. Let's do it together.

  • Delilah: Don't you just love how Stokely accessorize with different shades of black?

    Delilah: I hope you're not a violent lesbian like your new found friend, here?
