The Thorn Birds movie 6 | Learn to be a great lady

Quotes from film part 6

Why aren't you older so that I could explain this to you. That argument that Daddy and I had is just a kind of a sign that it's time for me to be going on my own. But you mustn't tell Mom about it, do you hear? Aren't you going to tell Mom goodbye? I'll write to her. She'll understand. Where are you going, Frank? You know the money I won for boxing. The man who owns the whole troupe, Jimmy Sharman he wants me to be one of his regular fighters. Really? Think of that. I'll travel around the whole country and see things you've never dreamed of. I wish you'd take me with you. Will you, Frank? No. What kind of life would that be for you? You must stay here and learn to be a great lady. Because you know something? You're going to be all grown up sooner than you know. Why don't you love me anymore? I do love you, Meggie. No, you don't. You wouldn't leave me if you did. My darling Meggie. No one will ever love you more than I. Frank! I was the dairy hand. I used to see Fee in the distance walking with Frank. He was only a baby then. Then one day, old Roderick Armstrong came to see me. He said his daughter had disgraced the family. They wanted to send her away but the grandmother wouldn't hear of it. Now the old lady was dying, there was nothing to stop them. He said if I'd marry Fee, take her away they'd pay me enough money to set us up. So you married a lady far above you? But it wasn't the money, Father. She was so beautiful. I wanted to see her safe and not abused. To me she's beautiful still. She is indeed. And in Meggie, I can see what she must've been like then. Yeah. I was frightened to death of her at first. It took me two years to get up enough courage to be a proper husband to her. I love her so much, Father. I know she's never had that feeling for me. Not even in the most private moments of our lives together. But never once in all these years has she ever complained or cried or laughed. How's Meggie? Father, what in heaven's name happened here today? What a pleasure having you do that for me. I think from now on I'll call you "Our Lady of the Gates." How many wretched gates are there between Gillanbone and Drogheda? Twenty-seven, Father. Twenty-seven. And that means one has to stop and get out how many times? Fifty-four, Father. Well done. Fifty-four times coming and fifty-four times going. Now, if a priest were to travel between Gilly and Drogheda to see his favorite person, say, once each month how many times would he have to stop and get out during one year's time? It's all right, Father. With the baby to take care of, I'll be too busy to miss school. Just leave all 27 of them gaping open like astonished mouths behind me. Goodbye, Father. Hello, Mom. Hello, Meggie. Mom, Hal's beautiful. Father de Bricassart, how very nice to see you again. Why did you do it, Mary? When the dress on your back could pay her tuition for the rest of the year! Ralph, I don't believe I've ever seen you so impassioned. I thought it best to take Meghann out of school. Fee is not well. She needs the help. Why do you dislike Meggie so much? She's a beautiful, intelligent little girl and yet no one seems to give a rap about her! Which means you can be sure of her love. And it's all so innocent and so safe for you, isn't it? No danger to your reputation no threat to those not-so-holy ambitions of yours. Mary, this is unworthy even of you. I am, after all, a priest. You are a man first, Ralph de Bricassart. No, Mary. A priest. First, last and always.
