The Thorn Birds movie 14 | It's too late, like all my life

Quotes from film part 14

It was good of you to be here, Father. It would have meant the world to Paddy and to Stuie. It's curious, you know. When it looked as though the fire might take everything I kept thinking of the most peculiar things. I didn't think of dying or the children or this beautiful house in ruins. All I could think about were my accounts the socks I was knitting for Paddy the heart-shaped cake tins Frank made me years ago. How could I survive without them? All the little things. Things which can't be replaced. It's too late, like all my life. Too late for him, too late for me. I can never take my Paddy in my arms now. I can never say to him the only thing he ever wanted me to say, that I loved him. I do love him, Father. You'll never see me weep again. I'm finished with tears forever. You do have two sons left you, Fee and you have Meggie. It's not too late for Meggie. Meggie? Will you promise me something? If you like. Look after Meggie. Don't forget her. Make her go to the local dances, meet the young men. Help her look around her world and find some good, kind man to marry who'll give her children and a home of her own. It's time. Whatever you say, Father. Fee, she's your daughter. It's as if you never remember that. Does any woman? What's a daughter? Just a reminder of the pain a younger version of oneself who will do all the same things, cry the same tears. No, Father. I try to forget I have a daughter. It survived. Meggie, I need no reminder of you. Not now, not ever. I carry you within me. You know that. I must go. Yes. Everything's all right now. All in order. The dead are buried and blessed and you and mom have my life planned out. Meggie, we must make an end to this. My life belongs to God. You've always known that. That dear and gentle God who has taken from me everyone that I've loved most in the world. One by one. Frank, and Hal and Stuie and my father. And you, of course. Always you. God is merciful. There'll be no one else to grieve. He is merciful. I know you can't see that now, but he is. He spared the rose. He sent the rain. Who sent the fire? Good, they've come. Nice to see them after two years of not even enough sheep to need them. All new lads, I think. Not a bad-looking lot, for shearing men. That one's quite a dandy. Which? The one in the white, you mean. I suppose he's all right. Bet he spends all his time washing and ironing, just to keep up appearances. Mrs. Smith. Get this wool! All right, lads! There's your day! You know, you owe me one. You're a regular dreadnought, aren't you? What about you? I like to keep a hand in. You're O'Neill, aren't you? Yes, sir, Luke O'Neill. Look at this, Bob. O'Neill shore 200. Just a couple ahead of you. The lads have been talking about getting up a contest between you two. Are they, now? Well, you know they always are eager to win a few quid wagering. Why not? What do you think, O'Neill? The fact is, I'm not much on contests but thank you all the same, Mr. Cleary.
