The Thorn Birds movie 18 | we got some honeymooning to do

Quotes from film part 18

I wonder what Ralph will think when I write that you've married a Protestant. What difference does it make? I'm doing what he wanted, aren't I? Mom I'd really rather you didn't write. I'll send Father Ralph a letter about it as soon as we settle in Queensland. All right, if you prefer. The Minister's going. I'd best go down. I'll miss you, Meggie. If you don't stop, you'll have me crying as well and how would that look? I'm a silly old goose. It's just that Queensland seems so far away. It's not forever, and I'll be home to visit. It's just that Luke can earn so much more cutting cane in Queensland. I suppose that means you'll be able to buy your own sheep station that much sooner. That's right. And just think I'll have a new home of my own to take care of. And I'll have children one day. I've just got to have something of my own something real that I can care about. Meggie, darling. And I need Luke. He's not one of those complicated men who'll always be wanting something more than he wants me. Luke loves me, Mrs. Smith. Truly, he does. £14,000? Why, that's more than a lot of squatters are worth. I had no idea. What, she didn't tell you? Oh, Lord. That's Meggie. No more idea than a child about such things. Ralph gave us money when the Church inherited Drogheda. Father de Bricassart. He oversees the estate for the Church. I've transferred Meggie's money to the bank in Dungloe and put it in your name. I want you to know how much I appreciate the way you Clearys have treated me. I don't have much, but what I do have is Meghann's. And you can be sure I'll never touch a penny of this except to buy us a station. And I'll take good care of her. You have my word on that. Come on, you two! Goodbye, Pete. All the best, Meggie. Thanks, Alastair. Be happy, Meggie. Come on, Meghann, we'll miss our train. Your Eminence. Eminence? I think I'm not quite accustomed yet to being a cardinal, Ralph. I'm almost rather startled when you call me that. You will see what I mean when first you are addressed as My Lord Bishop de Bricassart. But I trust you're ready for it. I hope that I am and that I can be worthy of it. My dear Ralph. Often when I speak to you of your progress in the Church I do so in ways that sound worldly even cynical. I do not fully understand you yet. Perhaps I never shall. But I have never doubted that your life is dedicated to God. Nor do I doubt that in making you My Lord Bishop today the Church will bring you the greatest happiness you have ever known. Luke, look. It's like paradise. It's Queensland, love. Luke, what on earth are they doing? They're burning up the cane. Drives out the rats and snakes, makes it easier for the fellows to get at. Smells wonderful, doesn't it? That's what you'll be doing? That's coolie labor. Coolie labor? Queensland cutters are the finest in the world, the elite. I'll be a lucky lad if my old mate, Arne, will hire me. He will, if he wants a good worker. I can earn 10 times as much in that cane as I ever could at Drogheda. And that means we'll be able to buy a place that much sooner. So if I have to be a coolie now, then I will. Because one day, Mrs. O'Neill, I intend to be the headpin out on the best sheep station in the whole of Western Queensland. I'm sorry. Forget it, love. First time and all. Does it always hurt so much? Never got any complaints before. I'm just so tired. Three days on the train and then the bus. I know. And this wet heat makes it worse when you're not used to it. Tell you what. You have a nice nap, and I'll go and see Arne. Then we'll both look at Dungloe together. Tell me about Arne Swenson. You haven't said a word. Should've seen his face when I told him I was married. Couldn't believe I'd do it to him. Does he have a job for you? Only £20 a week, starting tomorrow. £20? That's wonderful. Tomorrow? We don't even have a house yet. I suppose I could look for one by myself. That's what I wanted to talk to you about. See, Arne's gang works six days a week, up and down the coast. They live in barracks, and I'll have to live with them. What am I supposed to do? I don't want to stay here by myself. Of course not, and I wouldn't want you to. Besides what sort of sense would that be? Paying rent on a place for just one person. I fixed up for you to stay with someone Arne knows. The Muellers. Mrs. Mueller needs help round the house Luke. You make it sound like the end of the world. You'll be on a big cane plantation. The Mueller's manage it. And they're nice people. I looked them over very carefully. I thought at least I'd make some kind of home for us. It's not as if we were destitute. We've got my £14,000. And that's to stay in the bank as our nest egg. The rest we can earn together. If we put our heads down and work hard, we'll have our own place in no time. I just want us to have the best. I know. But living in some stranger's house never seeing you? Of course, you'll see me. We'll have every Sunday together. Make up for the rest of the week. Come on, let's get back to the hotel.
