Top 10 Priscilla Quotes

The top 10 quotes from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

There’s much to celebrate in 2018 when it comes to The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

In January, writer/director Stephan Elliott’s latest film Swinging Safari, which he has called a “Priscilla reunion”, will be hitting screens. Previously titled Flammable Children, it reunites Elliott with Priscilla actor Guy Pearce, producer Al Clark, production designer Colin Gibson, costume designer Lizzy Gardiner (who won an Academy Award for her work on Priscilla), composer Guy Gross and editor Sue Blainey.

Also in January, the hit musical adaptation of Priscilla that Elliott co-wrote will begin parading its way around the country on a national tour. The 10th anniversary tour will begin in Melbourne, and sashay to Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane throughout the year.

So as Australia’s most successful homegrown musical revs her engine, let’s look back through some of the top 10 faaaaaabulous quotes from the film.

1. Great, that’s just what this country needs: a cock in a frock on a rock.

Poetic, yet insulting.

2. Come on girls, let’s go shopping.

An understated outing.

3. I hereby christen this budget barbie camper Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

The ultimate shut-down.


5. What are you telling me? This is an ABBA turd?

When an autograph just isn’t enough.

6. I’m going to smack his face so hard he’ll have to stick his toothbrush up his arse to clean his teeth.

Australian for: 'you are annoying me'.

7. You can’t do that with a ping pong ball?!

'Wanna bet!'

8. Don't Darling Me, Darling. Look at you. You’ve got a face like a cat’s arse.

When you're in a mood.

Bringing the sass.
