Quotes 

  • Elton John : Real love's hard to come by. So you find a way to cope without it.

  • Elton John : Bernie, I never told you how much I need you.

    Bernie Taupin : No, no. I love you, man. Always have, always will.

  • Counselor : Did being married make you happy?

    Elton John : Not really. I'm gay.

  • Bernie Taupin : Don't you want to just go out there and sing without this ridiculous paraphernalia? You know, just... be yourself, Reg.

    Elton John : Why the fuck would I want that, Bernie? You wouldn't say this shit to me if you were a real friend. People don't pay to see Reginald Dwight! They pay to see *Elton John*! Don't ever tell me how to do my fucking job!

  • Elton John : I'm sorry.

    Renate : I know.

  • Elton John : [on a payphone]  I'm... a homosexual... A poofter... A fairy... A queen...

    Elton John : ... Well say something!

    Sheila : Oh, for God's sake, I know that. I've known for years.

    Elton John : You don't mind?

    Sheila : Frankly I don't care, but I'd rather you keep that sort of thing to yourself. I just hope you realize you're choosing a life of being alone forever. You'll never be loved properly.

  • Elton John : Oh, write the fucking lyrics, Bernie. Let me deal with the rest!

    Elton John : Yeah, all of them!

    Maître D' : Excellent choice.

  • Elton John : I've got the number one album in America, again, I'm about to embark on the highest grossing tour in rock history, I'm personally responsible for 5% of all record sales on the entire planet, and I have the biggest headdress known to man, so, yeah, I think I'm OK!

  • Elton John : My name is Elton Hercules John. And I'm an alcoholic. And a cocaine addict. And a sex addict. And a bulimic. Also a shopaholic and has problems with weed, prescription drugs and anger management.

    Elton John : Don't go. Not yet.

    Bernie Taupin : This is the part you've got to do on your own. These... need music.

    [hands over an envelope and walks away] 

    Elton John : Thank you, Bernie.

    Bernie Taupin : You're my brother.

  • Elton John : [from trailer; singing]  And I think it's gonna be a long, long time. Till touch down brings me round again to find, I'm not the man they think I am at home. Oh no no no, I'm a rocketman!

  • Reggie Dwight : Elton?

    Elton Dean : Yeah?

    Reggie Dwight : I'm thinking of changing my name.
