The Thorn Birds movie 19 | To make it in this game, a man's gotta give it all
Quotes from film part 19
Arne Swenson: Good life all right, cutting the sugar. Best life there is for the man that's up to it. And Luke, he's got the stuff to be a bloody good cutter if he's not interfered with.
Meggie Cleary: Let's just hope Luke is bloody good enough to make lots of money because that's what he wants out of it.
Arne Swenson: Yeah, that's what I used to say.
Luke O'Neill: Look at this, Meghann. Didn't I say it was nice?
Meggie Cleary: There's plenty of cane, if that's what you mean.
Luke O'Neill: Bye, love. See you Sunday.
Meggie Cleary: She'll be waiting for you Sunday. Good day! Can you tell me where to find the manager? Thank you.
Luddie Mueller: Get those slobs off their behinds and on their feet or I'll find somebody who can. There's plenty looking for your job.
Meggie Cleary: Mr. Mueller? I'm Meggie Cleary.
Luddie Mueller: What?
Meggie Cleary: O'Neill.
Luddie Mueller: You're the new girl. Why aren't you up at the house then? Bet you took the wrong road. Everybody does. Come on, I'd best take you up. A wife shouldn't be left alone so long. How do you like our Himmelhoch?
Meggie Cleary: It's lovely, Mr. Mueller. So green.
Luddie Mueller: Not like home? Your husband tells me you come from somewhere down in New South Wales. God, why do you try to do these things?
Anne Mueller: Yes, why do I? Just hand me my canes, Luddie.
Luddie Mueller: Anne, this is the new girl. Mrs. O'Neill.
Anne Mueller: Meggie, I hope you have a strong back and plenty of patience.
Luddie Mueller: I better get back to the mill.
Meggie Cleary: I'll just clear this away.
Anne Mueller: Make sure you get all the pieces.
Arne Swenson: Get a move on, fellows. Not like that, mate. Not unless you wanna be the only one-handed cutter. Give it here.
Luke O'Neill: I'm beginning to see why this job pays so good.
Arne Swenson: Cut it low and throw it out. Low and throw it out. It's easy when you know how. But you'd best stay away from that bride of yours. To make it in this game, a man's gotta give it all to the cane.
Anne Mueller: I can certainly see why they banned this one. That gamekeeper.
Luddie Mueller: Anne, you and your spicy books.
Meggie Cleary: I'll go and start tea. No point waiting for Luke any longer.
Luddie Mueller: No doubt he'll be working.
Anne Mueller: Working. Like every Sunday.
Luddie Mueller: There's a depression on. You can hardly blame him for working when he has the chance.
Anne Mueller: Fine. If you ask me, he's just like most of the men around here. Marry some poor girl and go off and traipse all over with their mates. If a bachelor's life is what they truly want, why marry at all?
Ralph de Bricassart: At 11:00, there's a meeting on consular relations with the secretary. I'd watch him, Your Grace, I hear he's opposed to your position. Then the congregation for the Oriental churches to discuss the establishment of more regional seminaries. An exciting trend, don't you think? Because a native clergy would be more sensitive to their own people.
Archbishop Vittorio Contini: No doubt, but all these endless conferences policy, diplomacy. Are you so very certain that you want to be a cardinal?
Ralph de Bricassart: How else can I hope to be elected Pope?
Archbishop Vittorio: The perfect answer, always. Deceiving with the truth. Do you never have one unguarded moment?
Ralph de Bricassart: I beg your pardon, I've offended Your Eminence.
Archbishop Vittorio: And I wish you'd stop calling me by that exalted title of mine. My name is Vittorio. When Pius X became Pope he was given a wonderful bed. Do you know what he said? It's beautiful but I shall die in it. So much for the rewards of ambition.
