Sharon McKendrick Quotes:

  • Susan Evers: Do you want to know Father? And I'm just dying to know Mother. It might be so scary that we just might be able to pull it off.

    Sharon McKendrick: Pull what off?

    Susan Evers: Switch places!

    Sharon McKendrick: Switch?

    Susan Evers: We can do it. We're twins, aren't we? Oh, I'm just dying to know Mother! Look, now I'M getting goosebumps!

    Sharon McKendrick: Me, too. You know something? There's more to it than just switching places. I believe fate brought us together.

    Susan Evers: How so?

    Sharon McKendrick: If we switched, sooner or later, they'd have to unswitch us.

    Susan Evers: Mother would have to bring me to California to unmix us.

    Sharon McKendrick: And they'd have to meet again.

    Susan Evers: Face-to-face. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

    Sharon McKendrick: Exactly.

    Susan Evers: Let's get to work!

  • Vicky Robinson: You're a big girl now, Susan. You're old enough to understand that wonderful, delicate mystery that happens sometimes between a man and a woman.

    Sharon McKendrick: I know what wonderful, delicate mystery Daddy sees in you. And I can't say I blame him there, either. You're very nicely put together.

    Vicky Robinson: Your father underestimates you, I think.

    Sharon McKendrick: I'm sure you won't, will you, Vicky?

    Vicky Robinson: Susan, dear, you've had him to yourself all this time, and I can understand that suddenly to have another woman around, well, it's a tremendous intrusion. But all my life, it seemed, I've hoped and waited for someone like him: someone gentle and mature, rough-edged, but quick to laugh, someone understanding and wise. All the things that I've come to love and cherish in him.

    Sharon McKendrick: Well, that's very refreshing.

    Vicky Robinson: Why, dear?

    Sharon McKendrick: Most girls just run after Daddy because he's so wealthy.

    Vicky Robinson: [angrily] Are you inferring that I'd marry your father for his money?

    Sharon McKendrick: If the shoe fits, wear it!

    Vicky Robinson: Look, pet. I've tried to be friendly, but I'm going to marry your father, so you get used to the idea!

    Sharon McKendrick: You wanna bet?

    Vicky Robinson: Oh, honey, don't you play with the big girls. You'll be in way over your head.

  • Sharon McKendrick: 'Cos that's how true love creates its beautiful agony. All splendid lovers had just dreadful times! Er, Pelias and Melisande, Daphnis and ChloĆ«. History's just jammed with stories of lovers parted by some silly thing!

  • Sharon McKendrick: [looks at Susan putting up a picture on the wall] Who's that?

    Susan Evers: [turns to her surprised] Are you kidding? Ricky Nelson?

    Sharon McKendrick: Oh, your boyfriend.

    Susan Evers: [a choked laugh is forced out] I wish he was! You mean you've never heard of him? Where do ya come from? Outer space?

  • Sharon McKendrick: [while Mitch thinks she's Susan] My nails, I bit them all because of you! And my hair! Look at my hair! I cut it off just for you! Of all the pigheaded fathers!

  • Sharon McKendrick: [after telling her he's going to marry Vicky] Don't you see, Dad, it's all relative. Compared to her, you're an old man.

    Mitch Evers: I am not an old man!

  • Miss Inch: Congratulations. In the history of this camp, that was the most infamous, the most disgusting, the most revolting display of hooliganism we have ever had.

    Miss Grunecker: Rolling around like hooligans in front of our guests.

    Miss Inch: And worst of all, two sisters who should be setting a good example.

    Susan Evers: We're not sisters!

    Sharon McKendrick: I've never seen HER before in my life.

    Miss Inch: They are! Aren't they?

    Miss Grunecker: No ma'am. Just look-alikes.

    Miss Inch: An amazing resemblance.
