Old Crone Quotes in The Loves of Carmen (1948)
Old Crone Quotes:
Old Crone: [Reading Carmen's fortune] One love. One love emerges from all the rest. And makes the others nothing.
Carmen GarcÃa: You're talking nonsense, old witch. There is no such thing as one love to Carmen.
Carmen GarcÃa: What is it? What do you see there that makes you look like that?
[She looks at the tarot cards]
Carmen GarcÃa: That isn't my fortune.
Old Crone: The fat's in the fire, all right. Just as I said.
Carmen GarcÃa: That isn't my fortune, I tell you. I didn't cut the cards.
[Carmen swats them off the table]
Carmen GarcÃa: Anyway, I don't believe in cards. I never have. As if you could see in those stupid cards that death was walking my way. We all have to die. And I can't think of a nicer way than to be killed by love.
Shopkeeper: [after Carmen orders a great deal of food] She's always hungry, that girl!
Old Crone: [seeing Carmen is with Don Jose, what she says implies her sexual promiscuity] Someday she'll eat the wrong thing, and then she'll howl about the pain as if she'd never been warned before.
Carmen GarcÃa: [Carmen realizes this may affect Don Jose and she looks at him for a reaction] Because they've lost their own appetites, they hate to see anybody enjoy eating.
Old Crone: [seeing Jane and Michael running in the alley] Come with me, m'dears! Granny'll 'ide you!
Old Crone: You have someone on that plane?
Loretta Castorini: Yeah, my fiancÃ©.
Old Crone: [angry] I put a curse on that plane. My sister is on that plane. I put a curse on that plane that it's gonna explode, burn on fire and fall into the sea. Fifty years ago, she stole a man from me. S'aprese il mio uomo! Today she tells me that she never loved him, that she took him to be strong on me. Now she's going back to Sicily. Ritorna in Sicilia! I cursed her that the green Atlantic water should swallow her up!
Loretta Castorini: I don't believe in curses.
Old Crone: [shrugging] Eh, neither do I.
