The Secret Garden (1987 TV Movie)
Betty: Morning, Miss.
Mary: Who are you?
Betty: Betty. It's Martha's free day and she's gone to help her mother in the country.
[Mrs. Medlock walks in]
Mary: Is your, uh, toothache gone?
Betty: [confused] Toothache?
Mary: [smiling knowingly at Mrs. Medlock] The toothache you didn't have.
Colin: Will you stay with me Mary, please?
Mary: Well, since you said please. But if you scream once more, I'll smother you with the pillow.
Nurse: And she would, too.
Ben Weatherstaff: Killed in the war, Dickon. In a forest called the Argonne.
Adult Mary: If Dickon had to die, he would have chosen a place with green and growing things.
Ben Weatherstaff: To die so young...
Ben Weatherstaff: Who's to know?
Adult Mary: Dickon knew.
Ben Weatherstaff: [after a pause] Aye, Dickon knew.
Adult Colin Craven: When I was at Oxford, I asked you to marry me. When I was in France I wrote to you and asked you to marry me. Why didn't you answer me, Mary?
Adult Mary: Because I wanted you to ask me here in our garden.
Adult Colin Craven: [smiles] Of course. I should have known.
Adult Colin Craven: Will you marry me, Mary Lennox?
Adult Mary: Yes.
Adult Mary: Come see our garden.
Mrs. Lennox: I just have the most marvelous idea; after the governers ball why don't we go for a breakfast picnic along the river?
People at table: Oh yes, yes, I'd like that very much.
Mrs. Crawford: I don't think I should feel like a picnic after dancing all night.
Mrs. Lennox: Nonsense.
Mrs. Crawford: Besides, I shan't be going to the ball, Stephen has booked me a passage to England. He says there's some kind of plague in the provinces.
Mrs. Lennox: Oh, there's always some kind of plague in the provinces, Mrs. Crawford. I wouldn't let that stop me from going to the ball.
[rings servant bell vigorously and ominously no one responds]
Mary: Please might I have a bit of earth? To make a garden? I love gardens.
Archibald Craven: [looking away] There was someone... someone very dear... who loved gardens, too.
Archibald Craven: [appears near tears and then abruptly changes tone] Go now, leave me.
Mary: [curtsies in relief and leaves] Thank you.
