Mary Poppins quotes
Director: Robert Stevenson
Stars: Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, David Tomlinson
Never judge things by their appearance.
Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid.
First of all, I would like to make one thing quite clear. I never explain anything.
In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun, and – SNAP – the job's a game!
Bert: [singing] Winds in the east, mist coming in. / Like somethin' is brewin' and bout to begin. / Can't put me finger on what lies in store, / But I fear what's to happen all happened before.
Mary Poppins, Bert: Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious, if you say it loud enough, you'll always sound precocious! Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Mary Poppins: [singing] Early each day to the steps of St. Paul's, the little old bird woman comes… In her own special way to the people she calls, come buy my bags full of crumbs. Come feed the little birds, show them you care, and you'll be glad if you do. Their young ones are hungry, their nests are so bare; all it takes is tuppence from you. Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag… Feed the birds, that's what she cries, while overhead her birds fill the skies. All around the cathedral the saints and apostles look down as she sells her wares. Although you can't see it, you know they are smiling each time someone shows that he cares. Though her words are simple and few, listen, listen, she's calling to you. Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag. Though her words are simple and few, listen, listen she's calling to you. Feed the birds, tuppence a bag. Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag.
Mary Poppins: You know, you *can* say it backwards, which is "docious-ali-expi-istic-fragil-cali-rupus" – but that's going a bit too far, don't you think?
Michael: [talking about Mary Poppins] We better keep an eye on this one. She's tricky.
