Quotes

  • Fred Gailey  

    Look Doris, someday you're going to find that your way of facing this realistic world just doesn't work. And when you do, don't overlook those lovely intangibles. You'll discover those are the only things that are worthwhile.

  • Fred Gailey  

    Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don't you see? It's not just Kris that's on trial, it's everything he stands for. It's kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles.

  • Charles Halloran  

    All right, you go back and tell them that the New York State Supreme Court rules there's no Santa Claus. It's all over the papers. The kids read it and they don't hang up their stockings. Now what happens to all the toys that are supposed to be in those stockings? Nobody buys them. The toy manufacturers are going to like that; so they have to lay off a lot of their employees, union employees. Now you got the CIO and the AF of L against you and they're going to adore you for it and they're going to say it with votes. Oh, and the department stores are going to love you too and the Christmas card makers and the candy companies. Ho ho. Henry, you're going to be an awful popular fella. And what about the Salvation Army? Why, they got a Santa Claus on every corner, and they're taking a fortune. But you go ahead Henry, you do it your way. You go on back in there and tell them that you rule there is no Santy Claus. Go on. But if you do, remember this: you can count on getting just two votes, your own and that district attorney's out there.

  • Judge Henry X. Harper  

    The District Attorney's a Republican.

  • Doris  

    Would you please tell her that you're not really Santa Claus, that actually is no such person?

  • Kris Kringle  

    Well, I hate to disagree with you, but not only IS there such a person, but here I am to prove it.

  • Fred  

    That baseball player sure looks like a giant to me.

  • Susan  

    Sometimes people grow very large, but that's abnormal.

  • Fred  

    I'll bet your mother told you that, too.
