Mary Poppins

In Fantasy, Movies on February 26, 2015 at 7:30 PM

Mary Poppins (1964) is a fantasy directed by Robert Stevenson, based on the book by P.L. Travers, about a magical nanny, Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews), and a chimney sweep, Bert (Dick Van Dyke), who help out the Banks family in London.

Life Lesson:

Don’t be so absorbed in routine that you miss the wonders around you.

Movie Scene:

Mary Poppins: “Goats butt, birds fly, and children who are going on an outing with their father must get some sleep. Come along, please.”

Jane Banks (Karen Dotrice): “An outing with father?”

Mary Poppins: “Yes.”

Michael Banks (Matthew Garber): “I don’t believe it.”

Jane: “He’s never taken us on an outing before.”

Michael: “He’s never taken us anywhere.”

Jane: “However did you manage it?”

Mary Poppins: “Manage what?”

Jane: “You must’ve put the idea in his head somehow.”

Mary Poppins: “What an impertinent thing to say! Me putting ideas into people’s heads? Really!”

Jane: “Where’s he taking us?”

Mary Poppins: “To the bank.”

Jane: “Oh, Michael, the city! And we’ll see all the sights, and father can point them out to us.”

Mary Poppins: “Well, most things he can. But sometimes a person we love, through no fault of his own, can’t see past the end of his nose.”

Jane: “Past the end of his nose?”

Mary Poppins: “Yes. Sometimes a little thing can be quite important.”
