Norma Desmond (to newsreel camera): "...All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up."
Norma Desmond (watching herself in her real silent film, "Queen Kelly" with Joe Gillis, actually directed by (the butler) Erich von Stroheim): "Still wonderful, isn't it? And NO dialogue... We didn't need dialogue. We had faces!!"
Joe Gillis (voiceover, of Norma): "...Poor devil. Still waving proudly to a parade which had long since passed her by..."
Joe Gillis: "Wait a minute! Haven't I seen you before? I know your face." Norma Desmond: "Get out! Or shall I call my servant?" Joe Gillis: "You're Norma Desmond! You used to be in silent pictures. You used to be big!" Norma Desmond: "I AM big. It's the PICTURES that got small."
Joe Gillis (to Norma): "...There's nothing tragic about being fifty. Not unless you're trying to be twenty-five."
