It's a Wonderful Life (1946) Poster

Thomas Mitchell: Uncle Billy



  • George Bailey : [George hears a train whistle]  There she blows. You know what the three most exciting sounds in the world are?

    Uncle Billy : Uh huh. Breakfast is served; lunch is served; dinner...

    George Bailey : No no no no. Anchor chains, plane motors and train whistles.

  • Uncle Billy : After all, Potter, some people like George HAD to stay at home. Not every heel was in Germany and Japan.

  • George Bailey : [the staff celebrates closing the building and loan company with only two dollars remaining, to stay in business]  Get a tray for these two great big important simoleans here.

    Uncle Billy : We'll save 'em for seed.

    George Bailey : A toast! A toast! A toast to Mama Dollar and to Papa Dollar, and if you want to keep this old Building and Loan in business, you better have a family real quick.

    Cousin Tilly : I wish they were rabbits.

  • Uncle Billy : [drunk]  Where's my hat? Where's my hat?

    [George takes it off Billy's head and hands it to him] 

    Uncle Billy : Oh, oh thankyou, George. Which is mine?

    George Bailey : The middle one.

  • Uncle Billy : They're putting us out of business. So what? I can get another job, I'm only 55.

    Cousin Tilly : 56!

  • Harry Bailey : Uncle Billy, you haven't changed a bit.

    Uncle Billy : Nobody ever changes here, you know that.

  • Uncle Billy : On boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I feel so good I could spit in Potter's eye! I think I will, I think I will!

  • Mr. Potter : [Harry's won the Congressional Medal of Honour]  How does slacker George feel about that?

    Uncle Billy : Very jealous, very jealous. He only lost three buttons off his vest.

  • George Bailey : Did you put the envelope in your pocket?

    Uncle Billy : Maybe, maybe, maybe.

    George Bailey : Maybe, maybe! I don't want any maybe, look we've got to find that money.
