Jeannie Quayle Quotes in Ride a Wild Pony (1975)


Jeannie Quayle Quotes:

  • Jeannie Quayle: I don't like Scott Pirie. Mary Strapp has to sit next to him. She says he smells.

    Mrs. Quayle: Jeannie, he has all the farm chores to do before he comes to school in the morning.

    Jeannie Quayle: He could still have a bath.

    Mrs. Quayle: Could he? The Piries have no running water on their farm. Every drop they use has to be pumped up and heated on the stove.

    Kit Quayle: Anyway, I like Scotty.

    Jeannie Quayle: You would.

    Kit Quayle: Just because you go and visit Josie Ellison in her big rich house.

  • Postmaster: Isn't that the little Ellison girl? Not often we see her in town.

    Jeannie Quayle: Hello, Josie, how are you?

    Josie Ellison: I'm very well, thank you, Jeannie.

    Postmaster: How long ago was that infantile paralysis?

    Charles E. Quayle: About two years. You know, she's a year younger than my daughter. You wouldn't think so, would you?

  • Jeannie Quayle: Hey, there's Scotty walking!

    Kit Quayle: Hey, Scotty, where's Taff?

    Scotty Pirie: Dunno. He broke out.

    Kit Quayle: Can't you find him? Hey, maybe some straggler picked him up.

    Jeannie Quayle: Or maybe he wandered off and can't find his way back.

    Scotty Pirie: Not Taff.

    Kit Quayle: Hey, maybe he fell in the river.

    Jeannie Quayle: Or seen Mr. Ellison's herd of ponies on the other side and wanted to get to them.

    Scotty Pirie: You don't know Taff! I tell you nothing would make him go near the water!

    Kit Quayle: He could've found a dry crossing.

    Scotty Pirie: I looked. There's not one near our place.

    Jeannie Quayle: Well, where is he, then?

    Scotty Pirie: He'll turn up. He always does.

  • Jeannie Quayle: Hey, there's that bush boy back.

    Charles E. Quayle: How long was he gone this time?

    Kit Quayle: Four days. I'll bet he had fun.

    Charles E. Quayle: Don't use that cheap expression. You don't bet anything. Kit?

    Kit Quayle: Yes, Dad?

    Charles E. Quayle: Running away can become a habit. I hope you won't forget that.

  • Jeannie Quayle: Well, I think it's wicked and cruel of Scott Pirie trying to take Josie's pony.

    Kit Quayle: It isn't her pony. It's Scotty's.

    Charles E. Quayle: How do you know it is?

    Kit Quayle: I just know.

    Charles E. Quayle: Well, what if Josie Ellison just knows that it's hers?

    Mrs. Quayle: But supposing it really is Scott Pirie's pony? What happens then?

    Charles E. Quayle: Only a court of law can decide that.

    Jeannie Quayle: If it did go to court, Father, who do you think would win?

    Charles E. Quayle: Well, I'm not prepared to act as judge.

    Jeannie Quayle: Come on, Father, which do you think?

    Charles E. Quayle: In this case, possession is nine-tenths of the law.

  • Jeannie Quayle: Hey, Scotty, did you get Taff back?

    Kit Quayle: Well, did you get the pony back or not?

    Scotty Pirie: Mind your own business.

    Kit Quayle: I'll bet he has.

    Jeannie Quayle: Well, if he has, he ought to be ashamed of himself.

    Kit Quayle: Hey, how'd he get Taff back across the river?

    Jeannie Quayle: If that pony crossed the river, it must be Bo.

  • Jeannie Quayle: Kit, what happened? How it's going?

    Kit Quayle: I don't know. Father, well, he seems to be...

    Jeannie Quayle: What?

    Kit Quayle: He seems to be trying to prove that no one can tell whose pony it is.

    Jeannie Quayle: What will happen?

    Kit Quayle: They'll give the pony to Josie.

    Jeannie Quayle: Well, it is her pony.

    Kit Quayle: Is it?
