Joe Gillis (voiceover, of Norma): "...Poor devil. Still waving proudly to a parade which had long since passed her by..."
Joe Gillis (to Norma): "...There's nothing tragic about being fifty. Not unless you're trying to be twenty-five."
Norma Desmond (to newsreel camera): "...All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up."
