The Sound of Music Movie Quotes

Here are a few of our favorite movie quotes from The Sound of Music.

The Baroness ( Eleanor Parker ):
"Somewhere out there is a lady who I think will never be a nun. Auf Wiedersehen, darling."

Captain von Trapp ( Christopher Plummer ):
"Fraulein, is it to be at every meal, or merely at dinnertime, that you intend on leading us all through this rare and wonderful new world of... indigestion?"

Peggy Wood ( Reverend Mother ):
"Maria, these walls were not meant to shut out problems. You have to face them. You have to live the life you were born to live."

Captain von Trapp ( Christopher Plummer ):
"Oh, there's nothing wrong with the children. Only the governesses."

Frau Schmidt ( Norma Varden ):
"The Von Trapp children don't play. They march."

Maria ( Julie Andrews ):
"When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window."

Captain von Trapp ( Christopher Plummer ):
"You are the twelfth in a long line of governesses who have come here to look after my children since their mother died. I trust you will be an improvement on the last one. She stayed only two hours."

Maria ( Julie Andrews ):
"There were times when we would look at each other - oh Mother, I could hardly breathe."

The Baroness ( Eleanor Parker ):
"There's nothing more irresistible to a man than a woman who's in love with him."

Max ( Richard Haydn ):
"I like rich people. I like the way they live. I like the way I live when I'm with them."

Captain von Trapp ( Christopher Plummer ):
"My fellow Austrians, I shall not be seeing you again perhaps for a very long time. I would like to sing for you now... a love song. I know you share this love. I pray that you will never let it die."
