Alright in the End
Sonny: "In India, we have a saying: 'Everything will be alright in the end.' So if it's not alright, it is not yet the end."
Poor Sonny -- he's trying so hard to fix up the Marigold and make it the place of grandeur that everyone believed it to be when they signed up to live there. Sonny has a dream and he's determined to make it come true.

Sonny (after Norman falls over onto the floor): "Let me through please, my brother is a doctor." (examines Norman) "This man is dead. We must cover his face, we should preserve his dignity at this terrible moment." (covers Norman's face)
Douglas (when Norman coughs): "He coughed, I saw him cough..."
Evelyn: "He moved...he's alive!"
Norman (after Sonny removes the scarf on his face): "Did I nod off?"
During the group's first official formal dinner at the Marigold Hotel, Sonny, the hotel's owner, proposes a toast. During the festivities, Norman falls out, and gives the group quite a scare -- and then, some laughs.

Sex at Your Age
Madge: "You're not worried about the danger of having sex at your age?"
Norman: "If she dies, she dies..."
Ah Norman, the lady killer of the group! When Norman (Ronald Pickup) decides he's hot to trot for Carol (Diana Hardcastle), an English woman who has lived in India for years, Madge (Celia Imrie) is understandably concerned about whether he'll be able to have sex safely.

Gin and Tonic
Evelyn: "I just want a glass of water..." (drains glass)
Madge: "That was a gin and tonic."
Evelyn: (breathless) "I know that now..."
Is it possible for Judi Dench to give a bad performance? No, no, it's not. Here, as Evelyn, Dench is once again marvellous -- and funny.

Graham: "Is this your first time in India?"
Evelyn: "Yes. Do you think we'll be alright?"
Graham: "Yes, it's going to be extraordinary."
Graham does his best to reassure everyone that India will be a dream come true for all of them, including Evelyn, who is (rightly) a bit concerned.

Like Florida, But With Elephants
Douglas: "It's a luxury development where all the residents are in their golden years."
Norman: "Like the coast of Florida?"
Douglas: "Yeah, but with more elephants..."
When Douglas and his fellow retirees decide to travel to India to retire, they are thinking the Marigold Hotel will offer them incredible luxury -- a place to quietly live out their "golden years" in high style. With elephants nearby.

What You Bring
Evelyn: "India, like life itself I suppose, is about what you bring to it."
Evelyn keeps a blog about the group's many adventures in India. She and Graham obviously pick up on the right idea -- that life is about what you make it. Start living, and the rest will fall into place.

Sonny: "Welcome to the best exotic Marigold Hotel!"
Sonny billed the Marigold Hotel as a place "for the elderly and beautiful." The group will soon discover that the Marigold isn't exactly what he promised...though it is certainly exotic.
