Quotes from the Movie Moulin Rouge

The Moulin Rouge. A night club, a dance hall and a bordello. Ruled over by Harold Zidler. A kingdom of night time pleasures, where the rich and powerful came to play with the young and beautiful creatures of the underworld. The most beautiful of all these was the woman I loved. Satine. A courtesan, she sold her love to men. They called her the 'Sparkling Diamond', and she was the star of the Moulin Rouge. The woman I loved is... dead.

Christian

This woman is yours now. I've paid my whore. I owe you nothing. And you are nothing to me. (crying slightly) Thank you for c-curing me of my r-ridiculous obsession with love!

Christian

Can't fall in love? But a life without love, that-that-that's terrible!

Christian

Above all things I believe in love. Love is like oxygen- love is a many splendored thing- love lifts us up where we belong! All you need is love!

Christian

Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that will live forever.

Christian

I had come to write about truth, beauty, freedom, and that which I believed in above all things: love. There was only one problem. I'd never been in love!

Christian

Luckily, right at that moment an unconscious Argentinean fell through my roof.

Christian

Come what may... come what may. I will love you, until my dying day!

Christian

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside, I'm not one of those who can easily hide.

Christian

Please tell me you're not one of Toulouse's oh-so-talented, charmingly bohemian, tragically impoverished proteges!

Satine

I don't need you anymore! All my life you made believe I was only worth what someone would pay for me! But Christian loves me! He loves me, Harold. He loves me and that is worth everything! We're going away from you, away from the Duke, away from the Moulin Rouge! Good-bye Harold.

Satine

Tell our story, Christian. Promise me. Yes. That way I'll... I'll always be with you.

Satine

You're going to be bad for business, I can tell.

Satine

The difference between you and I is that you can leave anytime you choose. But this is my home. The Moulin Rouge is my home.

Satine

Christian, I'm a courtesan. I'm paid to make men believe what they want to believe.

Satine

I couldn't. I saw you there and I felt differently and the Duke he saw... Christian I love you. I don't want to pretend anymore. I didn't want to lie and he knows, he knows.

Satine

Everything's going so well!

Harold Zidler

The Duke holds the deeds to the Moulin Rouge. He's spending a fortune on you. He's giving you a beautiful new dressing room. He wants to make you a star, and you are dallying with the writer!

Harold Zidler

The show must go on.

Harold Zidler

She says it feels so good when you hold her, and touch her; it makes her feel like a ... virgin.

Harold Zidler

We're creatures of the underworld. We can't afford to love.

Harold Zidler

Hurt him. Hurt him to save him.

Harold Zidler

A magnificent, opulent, tremendous, stupendous, gargantuan bedazzlement, a sensual ravishment. It will be: Spectacular Spectacular.

Harold Zidler

My little sparrow is dying.

Harold Zidler
