- JoJo: Music is the only thing that makes sense anymore... play it loud enough and it keeps the demons at bay.
- Jude: (later, to Lucy) My god you... you have perfect teeth. No, no. You do -- they're perfect. You know, people in Liverpool only seldom do. They stick out in all different directions. It's horrible.
- Lucy: Haven't you ever heard of braces?
- Jude: Yes I have, thank you very much. We use to keep our trousers up.
- Army Sergeant: Is there any reason you shouldn't serve in his Army?
- Max: I'm a cross-dressing homosexual pacifist with a spot on my lung.
- Army Sergeant: As long as you don't have flat feet...
- Lucy: I would gladly lay in front of a tank if it would bring back Max and end this war.
- Jude: Yeah? well it wouldn't.
- Jude: (drawing picture of Lucy, looks at her) Come here. (Lucy comes closer)Come closer. I just wanna get your eyes right.
- Sadie: (upon seeing Prudence for the first time) Where'd she come from?
- Jude: She came in through the bathroom window.
- Max: So, where's that accent from?
- Jude: Same place as me; Liverpool.
- Sadie: You got a good memory for faces?
- Max: Yeah, I think so. Why?
- Sadie: There's no mirror in your bathroom.
- Lucy: (after seeing her bosses constructing the bomb) I thought it was the other side who dropped bombs.
- Hippie: (after hearing Max wants to avoid the draft)You still have options man.
- Max: Yeah, jail or Canada and they both suck. I mean I could never come home, so what is it, it's a choice of a 6x4 cell or an endless wasteland of frozen tundra.
- Hippie: Montreal is cool.
- Max:Man, they speak French there.
- Groupie: So learn French. Learn French or die.
- Jude: Where are we going?
- Lucy: Out of our minds!
- Jude: Where are you taking me?
- Lucy: Down the rabbit hole!
- Jude: But I wanted to feed the cows!
- All you need is love.
- From director Julie Taymor comes the most original, exhilarating, spectacular, groundbreaking motion picture of the year.
