  • (Kevin McKidd) "You must go through the inn, but the schoolmaster is sitting in the front room just by the stairs."
  • (Tom Courtenay) "Oh dear. It's impossible."
  • (Kevin McKidd) "I could distract the schoolmaster, you could slip past and go to my room, there is a door adjoining the schoolmaster's, go through it, get the lad. I'll watch the stairs and again try to disrtact him when you come out."
  • (Tom Courtenay) "If I could offer an opinion in regards to this scheme? It seems, uh, foolhardy, riddled with danger, and doomed to failure. Otherwise I can find no fault with it. It is for Smike."

  • (Barry Humphries) "At any rate, I'd Iove to bring you and your friend out."
  • (Barry Humphries) "In every life, no matter how full or empty one's purse, there is tragedy. It is the one promise life always fulfills. Thus, happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it but to delight in it when it comes. And to add to other people's store of it. What happens if too early we lose a parent, that party on whom we rely for only everything? What did these people"
  • (Barry Humphries) "do when their families shrank? They cried their tears but then they did the vital thing. They built a new family, person by person. They came to see that family need not be defined merely as though with whom they share blood, but as those for whom they would give their blood."
  • (Barry Humphries) "Ladies and gentlemen, based on the receipts Mrs. Crummles has shown me, Liverpool has little relish for high-minded theatrical entertainments properly conducted. We must give them our pity. Now, we must give them something they will pay to see. 'Romeo and Juliet.'"

  • (Mr. Leadville) "I don't mind. I can manage."
  • (Barry Humphries) "Old friend, it may be time for you to move on from Romeo."

  • (Barry Humphries) "Lear?"
  • (Barry Humphries) "Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes."
  • (Barry Humphries) "And this is the infant phenomenon. She is but 10 years old."
  • (Charlie Hunnam) "Not -- older?"
  • (Barry Humphries) "Not a day."
  • (Barry Humphries) "Whatever you write, could you please include a washtub as I've just bought one at a sale."

  • (Charlie Hunnam) "Not Smike."
  • (Charlie Hunnam) "Your curse has no power over me. The structures you raised all through your misspent life are crumbling into dust. This day, this very day, 10000 pounds of your hoarded wealth are gone in one great crash. Your day is done. Night is coming fast for you."
  • (Charlie Hunnam) "You will do better when I am gone."

  • (Charlie Hunnam) "Does your friend think I'm in love with her?"
  • (Tilda) "Does she think so? Of course."
  • (Charlie Hunnam) "But I have made no such declaration."
  • (Tilda) "Your eyes said what your mouth could not."
  • (Charlie Hunnam) "Perhaps my mouth should say what my eyes have not. I have scarcely seen the lady three times but should I have seen her 30 or 30,000, it would be the same. I have not one thought, hope or wish connected with her unless it is part of the picture I keep in my mind of one day being able to turn my back upon this accursed place and never to think of it again with any feeling but loathing and disgust."

Heather Goldenhersh as Fanny Squeers

  • (Heather Goldenhersh) "Dear Mr. Knuckleboy, sir, my pa requests me to write to you. The doctor's considering it doubtful whether he will ever recover the use of his legs, which prevents his holding a pen."

Anne Hathaway as Madeline Bray

  • (Anne Hathaway) "Nicholas, I feel you know what it's like to be without happiness -- but do you know what it's like to be afraid of it? To see the world as so conniving, you cannot take pleasure in the appareance of something good -- because you suspect -- it is only a painted drop behind which other troubles lie. That has been my life. Every good thing has been a trick. Until you."

  • (Jamie Bell) "Now. Now I can say it. I am happy."
  • (Jamie Bell) "Tomorrow where will you go?"

  • (Charlie Hunnam) "Smike."
  • (Jamie Bell) "Please may I go with you to sea? I will be your faithful, hardworking servant, I will. Promise I will. I want only to be near you."
