Notable quotes from the 84th Annual Academy Awards held Sunday at the Hollywood & Highland Center:

"Next year this'll be called the Flomax theater." — Host Billy Crystal, referring to several elderly nominees this year, including Max von Sydow and Christopher Plummer. 
"You're only two years older than me, darling. Where have you been all my life?" — Christopher Plummer, on winning for best supporting actor for Beginners. At 82, he is the oldest Oscar winner ever. 
"At this time many Iranians all over the world are watching us and I imagine them to be very happy. They are happy not just because of an important award or a film or a filmmaker, but because at the time when talk of war, intimidation, and aggression is exchanged between politicians the name of their country, Iran, is spoken here through her glorious culture, a rich and ancient culture that has been hidden under the heavy dust of politics." Asghar Farhadi, director-writer-producer, on winning best foreign language film for A Separation.
 "I was genuinely starstruck when I met Kermit the Frog. Like many stars here tonight, he's a lot shorter in real life."Bret McKenzie, who won best original song for Man or Muppet.
"Let's get out of here." Kirk Baxter, on winning achievement in film editing for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
