Maria: The first three notes just happen to be, Do-Re-Mi. Do-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol [pronounced So]-La-Ti. Oh, let's see if I can make it easier.
[singing] Doe, a deer, a female deer. Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself. Far, a long, long way to run.
Sew, a needle pulling thread. La, a note to follow Sol
Tea, a drink with jam and bread. That will bring us back to Do...

Maria: When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window.
(In response to the Captain's inquiry about whether her undisciplined behavior is frequent) Only during thunderstorms, sir.
(Berating the Captain about not knowing his children) I know you don't, but you've got to! Now, take Liesl. She's not a child anymore; one of these days, you're going to wake up and find she's a woman. You won't even know her! And Frederick--he's a boy, but he wants to be a man like you, and there's no one to show him how....Brigitta could tell you about him if you'd let her get close to you. She notices everything. And Kurt pretends he's tough, not to show how hurt he is when you brush him aside. Louisa I don't know about yet, but someone has to find out about her, and the little ones just want to be loved. Oh, please, Captain, love them--love them all!
(singing) Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens/bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens/brown paper packages tied up with strings/these are a few of my favorite things.
(to Reverend Mother about her love for Captain) Oh, there were times when we would look at each other--oh, Mother, I could hardly breathe!

Captain von Trapp: You are the twelfth in a long line of governesses who have come here to look after my children since their mother died. I trust you will be an improvement on the last one. She stayed only two hours.
(Maria: What's wrong with the children, Captain?)
Oh, there's nothing wrong with the children. Only the governesses.

Captain von Trapp: Fraulein, is it to be at every meal, or merely at dinnertime, that you intend leading us all through this rare and wonderful new world of... indigestion?

Reverend Mother: [singing] How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her, many a thing she ought to understand
...How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

Reverend Mother: [singing] Climb ev'ry mountain, search high and low.
Follow ev'ry byway, every path you know.
Climb ev'ry mountain, ford every stream.
Follow every rainbow, till you find your dream.
A dream that will need all the love you can give
Every day of your life for as long as you live...

Dialogue:
Maria: [singing] The hills are alive with the sound of music, With songs they have sung for a thousand years, The hills fill my heart with the sound of music, My heart wants to sing every song it hears! My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise from the lake to the trees, My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies from a church on a breeze, To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over stones on its way, To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray! I go to the hills when my heart is lonely, I know I will hear what i've heard before, And my heart will be blessed with the sound of music, And I'll sing once more.
[Churchbells sound in the dinstance; Maria leaps up and starts running back to the Abby]

Dialogue:
Maria: I just couldn't help myself. The gates were open and the hills were beckoning and everything was so green and fresh, and the Untersberg kept leading me higher and higher, as if it wanted me to go right through the clouds with it
Reverend Mother: Child, suppose darkness had come and you were lost?
Maria: Oh, mother, I could never get lost up there, that’s my mountain, I was brought up on it,...It was the mountain that led me to you. Sometimes, I would come down the mountain, and climb a tree, and look over your wall into your garden and hear the Sisters singing on their way to Vespers; which brings me to another transgression, Reverend Mother, I was singing out there today, without permission...I can't seem to stop singing wherever I am. And what's worse, I can't seem to stop saying things - anything and everything I think and feel.
Reverend Mother: Some people would call that honesty.
Maria: Oh, but it's terrible, Reverend Mother.You know how Sister Berthe always makes me kiss the floor after we've had a disagreement? Well, lately I've taken to kissing the floor whenever I see her coming, just to save time.

Dialogue:
Captain: Now, when I want you, this is what you will hear. [blows whistle]
Maria: Oh, no, sir, I'm sorry, sir. I could never answer to a whistle. Whistles are for dogs and cats and other animals, but not for children, and definitely not for me. It would be too... humiliating.
Captain: Fraulein, were you this much trouble at the Abbey?
Maria: Oh, much more, sir!
Captain: Hmm. [starts to leave the room when Maria blows the whistle. He looks back at her.]
Maria: Excuse me, sir, I don't know your signal.
Captain: You may call me "Captain."

Dialogue:
Rolfe: [singing] You are sixteen, going on seventeen, baby it's time to think.
Better beware, be canny and careful, baby you're on the brink.
You are sixteen, going on seventeen, fellows will fall in line...
Eager young lads and roués and cads Will offer you food and wine.
Totally unprepared are you, to face a world of men.
Timid and shy and scared are you, of things beyond your ken.
You need someone older and wiser, telling you what to do.
I am seventeen, going on eighteen. I'll take care of you...
Liesl: [singing] I am sixteen, going on seventeen. I know that I'm naive.
Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet, and willingly I believe.
I am sixteen, going on seventeen, innocent as a rose...
Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies, what do I know of those?
Totally unprepared am I, to face a world of men.
Timid and shy and scared am I, of things beyond my ken.
I need someone older and wiser telling me what to do.
You are seventeen, going on eighteen. I'll depend on you.

Dialogue:
Baron: Is there a more beautiful expression of what is good in this country of ours than the innocent voices of our children?
Zeller: Oh, come now, Baron, would you have us believe that Austria alone holds a monopoly on virtue?
Captain: Herr Zeller, some of us prefer Austrian voices raised in song to ugly German threats.
Zeller: The ostrich buries his head in the sand, and sometimes in the flag. [He turns toward the Austrian flag, prominently displayed] Perhaps those who would warn you that the Anschluss is coming - and it is coming, Captain - perhaps they would get further with you by setting their words to music.
Captain: If the Nazis take over Austria, I have no doubt, Herr Zeller, that you will be the entire trumpet section.
Zeller: You flatter me, Captain.
Captain: Oh, how clumsy of me. I meant to accuse you.

Dialogue:
Maria: I left... I was frightened... I was confused. I felt, I've never felt that way before, I couldn't stay. I knew that here I'd be away from it. I'd be safe... I can't face him again... Oh, there were times when we would look at each other. Oh, Mother, I could hardly breathe... That's what's been torturing me. I was there on God's errand. To have asked for his love would have been wrong. I couldn't stay, I just couldn't. I'm ready at this moment to take my vows. Please help me.
Reverend Mother: Maria, the love of a man and a woman is holy too. You have a great capacity to love. What you must find out is how God wants you to spend your love.
Maria: But I pledged my life to God. I pledged my life to his service.
Reverend Mother: My daughter, if you love this man, it doesn't mean you love God less. No, you must find out and you must go back.
Maria: Oh, Mother, you can't ask me to do that. Please let me stay, I beg of you.
Reverend Mother: Maria, these walls were not built to shut out problems. You have to face them. You have to live the life you were born to live.
