Swiss Family Robinson (1960) Poster

Dorothy McGuire: Mother Robinson



  • Father : The world is full of nice, ordinary little people who live in nice, ordinary little houses on the ground. But didn't you ever dream of a house up on a tree top?

    Mother : No! Mostly I dream of having a house in New Guinea.

  • Father : First thing we've got to do is to, uh, unload the raft. Then, uh... put up some sort of shelter for the night.

    Mother : No. That's not the first thing.

    [kneels down in prayer and the rest follow suit] 

  • [reflecting on their island paradise] 

    Mother : It's wonderful for today, but what about tomorrow?

  • Francis : You don't have to worry anymore: I got my tiger!

    Mother : [awed]  He's got his tiger.

  • Father : What did I tell you? Anything we need, the island will produce it for us, even a girl.

    Mother : *A* girl. But we have three sons.

  • Francis : Are we ever going to open these other packages?

    Mother : Those are for Fritz and Ernst.

    Francis : But suppose they don't come back? Suppose they got "et" up?

    Father : Francis, you've had a long day, and it's past your bedtime.

    Francis : But it's Christmas.
