Henry Fonda Movie Quotes

Here are a few of our favorite movie quotes from Henry Fonda.

Tom Joad (The Grapes of Wrath):
"Ma, there comes a time when a man gets mad."

Lt. Doug Roberts (Mister Roberts):
"I looked down from our bridge and saw our captain's palm tree! Our trophy for superior achievement! The Admiral John J. Finchley award for delivering more toothpaste and toilet paper than any other Navy cargo ship in the safe area of the Pacific."

Juror No. 8 (12 Angry Men):
"There were 11 votes for guilty. It's not easy to raise my hand and send a boy off to die without talking about it first."

Robert Leffingwell (Advise and Consent):
"Son, this is a Washington, D.C. kind of lie. It's when the other person knows you're lying and also knows you know he knows."

Abraham Lincoln (Young Mr. Lincoln):
"Gentlemen and fellow citizens, I presume you know who I am; I'm plain Abraham Lincoln. My politics are short and sweet, like the old woman's dance."

Admiral Chester W. Nimitz (Midway):
"Were we better than the Japanese, or just luckier?"

Charles Pike (The Lady Eve):
"Men, that is, lot of men, are more careful in choosing a tailor than they are in choosing a wife… I think that if there's one time in your life to be careful, to weigh every pro and con, this is the time."
