Forrest Noble Quotes:

  • Mayor Everett D. Noble: [dictating his acceptance speech to his son, Forrest] I accept the responsibility with a sense of both humility, satisfaction and gratitude.

    Forrest Noble: You can not.

    Mayor Everett D. Noble: I've been saying it for years.

    Forrest Noble: Well, it isn't correct grammar.

    Forrest Noble: You're still talking about your children's grandfather.

    Libby: What are you trying to do? Depress me? If I thought they'd look anything like him...

  • Forrest Noble: If he waited a year longer, there might have been three of us to welcome him. If he waited two years, there might have been...

    Libby: Oh, shut up.

    Libby: Oh, I suppose so, if you look at it from a purely unromantic standpoint - like a breeding farm.
