Citizen Kane 1941
It isn't enough to tell us what a man did. You've got to tell us who he was.
She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl.
He was always trying to prove something. The whole thing about Susie being an opera singer, that was trying to prove something.
No, I guess Rosebud is just a... piece in a jigsaw puzzle... a missing piece.
You never should have married a newspaper man... they're worse than sailors!
You just want to persuade people that you love 'em so much that they ought to love you back.
Throw that junk in.

A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second.
I'd like to keep that particular piece of paper myself. I have a hunch it might turn out to be something pretty important. A document...
Forty-nine thousand acres of nothing but scenery and statues. I'm lonesome.
I don't know many people.

You know, Mr. Thatcher, if I hadn't been very rich, I might have been a really great man.
He never gave himself away. He never gave anything away. He just left you a tip.

You're getting paid, Mister, for opinions or for hauling?

I don't know how to run a newspaper, Mr. Thatcher; I just try everything I can think of.

I'm Charles Foster Kane. Whatever you want - just name it and it's yours! Only love me! Don't expect me to love you!
President's niece, huh? Before Mr. Kane's through with her, she'll be a president's wife.
It's the greatest curse that's ever been inflicted on the human race: memory.
I am NOT overdressed!

I'm Charles Foster Kane! I'm no cheap, crooked politician, trying to save himself from the consequences of his crimes!
On the other hand, I am the publisher of the Inquirer!

Well, it's no trick to make a lot of money... if all you want is to make a lot of money.
I can remember everything. That's my curse, young man.

Mr. Kane is finishing the review you started - he's writing a bad notice. I guess that'll show you.
Some people can sing, some people cannot. Impossible! Impossible!

I suppose he had some private sort of greatness. But he kept it to himself.

That's all he ever wanted out of life... was love. That's the tragedy of Charles Foster Kane. You see, he just didn't have any to give.
If you could've found out what Rosebud meant, I bet that would've explained everything.
I think I did pretty well under the circumstances.

You're right, I did lose a million dollars last year. I expect to lose a million dollars this year. I expect to lose a million dollars *next* year.
A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember.
Only you want love on your own terms. Something to be played your way, according to your rules.

Well what do you know? It's morning already. You must come around and tell me the story of YOUR life sometime.
We never lost as much as we made.

Anyway, it wouldn't have explained anything... I don't think any word can explain a man's life.

Twenty-five thousand bucks. That's a lot of money to pay for a dame without a head.

Everybody knows that story, Mr. Leland. But why did he do it? How could a man write a notice like that?

As Charles Foster Kane, who has 82,634 shares of Public Transit Preferred. You see, I do have a general idea of my holdings.
You know, Mr. Thatcher, at the rate of a million dollars a year, I'll have to close this place in... 60 years.
You may, if you can form such a committee, put me down for a contribution of $1,000 dollars.

I see. So it's YOU who this is being done to. It's not me at all. Not how I feel. Not what it means to me.
Mr. Carter, here's a three-column headline in the Chronicle. Why hasn't the Inquirer a three-column headline?

How did I find business conditions in Europe? With great difficulty.

One day .. I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in and on it there was a girl waiting to get off.

There's a lot of statues in Europe you haven't bought yet.

Well, it's no trick to make a lot of money if all you want is to make a lot of money.
There's only one person in the world who's going to decide what I'm going to do and that's me...
Mr. Carter, if the headline is big enough, it makes the news big enough.

You can't buy a bag of peanuts in this town without someone writing a song about you.
If it was anybody else, I'd say what's going to happen to you would be a lesson to you.
Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Switzerland... he was thrown out of a lot of colleges.
We have no secrets from our readers. Mr. Thatcher is one of our most devoted readers, Mr. Bernstein.
You know what the headline was the day before the election, 'Candidate Kane found in love nest with quote, singer, unquote.'
Old age. It's the only disease, Mr. Thompson, that you don't look forward to being cured of.
I suppose he had a private sort of greatness, but he kept it to himself.

You can't blame me. They've been making statues for some two thousand years, and I've only been collecting for five.
A toast, Jedediah: to Love on my own terms.

You just don't know Charlie. He thought that by finishing that notice he could show me he was an honest man.

No, I don't think so; no. Mr. Kane was a man who got everything he wanted and then lost it.
He knows what's wrong with every issue since I've taken charge.

As such, it's my duty .. to see to it that decent, hard-working people in this community aren't robbed blind by a pack of money-mad pirates just because - they haven't anybody to look after their interests.
Bernstein, am I a stuffed shirt? Am I a horse-faced hypocrite? Am I a New England school marm?

His paper should be run out of town. A committee should be formed to boycott him.
