The Thorn Birds movie 20 | This dream of his to have the best place in Australia

Quotes from film part 20

Five tons a day, O'Neill. Not bad for a beginner. While you're cutting 12 a day. So, that's it, is it? You're looking to outstrip me. Could be, Arne. Let's see those hands. Poor Lukie. Of course, you could always try wearing gloves. Gloves? You think I can't beat your tally? I think you're full of blarney, same as you always were. Old Luke and his big plans. Like those rich cocky's daughters you were going to marry. Yeah, well, I didn't do too bad. £14,000, more coming in. You'll be a cocky yourself in no time. I will. Come on, let's go into town and look around. I thought you said no sheila. There's no harm in letting them look. Give them something to wish for. I'm sorry, boys, that's all there is. She'll either be wanting money or a wedding ring. Bloody hell, she's having another kid. I told you not to go home last time. What in heaven have you got on your head? Isn't it glorious? Luddie, we had the best time. Meggie took me into Dungloe, Christmas shopping. She did? What next? There's a letter in there for you. Thanks. Bad girl, I could do that well. I'm sorry. Meggie, what is it? Luke's not taking me home for Christmas after all. He and Arne have found some extra work. Doesn't that man do anything but work? This dream of his to have the best place in Australia comes before everything. We've been here almost a year and now he says it may be another year before we're ready, maybe two. I suppose you have to respect him for having a goal and being willing to sacrifice for it. Yes. Except I'm the sacrifice. Well, I've no one to blame but myself. I've married Luke and I'll see it through. Oh, rubbish! You wouldn't understand, you're not a Catholic. Another load of rubbish. It's true that we do much that is good but often the sacrifices seem to outweigh the rewards. But doesn't every priest, whatever he is in the Church wonder about the sacrifices he must make? Always, if he is honest with himself. When we're young it is the promise of chastity that is hardest to bear isn't it? Never to be swept away on a tidal wave of passion. And then knowing that there will be no wife no soft round comfort in the night. And no child. No one to come after you. Not ever. But lately I've been feeling another kind of isolation. The simple human need to share my innermost self with someone like any other man. We're not like other men, we're priests. Our inmost selves must be shared only with God. Another perfect answer. You think I am testing you again, don't you? Still probing for the sake of the Church. Never fear, for all of my probing there is still in the very core of you something I have not found. If you haven't found it, perhaps it isn't there. How lovely. Still the faintest fragrance. I kept a rose for many years from my mother. I want no memories of my mother. This was the sacrifice. It is very fragile. We must be careful with it. Look what I've got here. Hi, love. Happy 1934. Luke, what on earth Don't just stand there, get your dancing shoes on. Are you off to a fancy dress ball? No, it's a ceilidh. Out to Kanes'. But you're not a Scot. What's the difference? We're better dancers than those Scot blokes. We ought to be. We're out there every Saturday night. But tonight's special. To make up for Christmas. I wouldn't miss this chance for the world. Come on, that's enough. Eleven tons I cut yesterday, mate. I told you if you match my 12 tons, I'll make you my partner. I'll match you before the season's out. Two whiskies, thanks. That's 12 tons and a new truck. With the money you've married, you can afford it. Too right. And we'll get the best bloody truck. Hello, sweetheart. Having a good time? I think I'm about to. Eleven tons, mate. Let's see you cut 11 tomorrow. Got to go, love. Work tomorrow. Come on, Luke, I've got something to show you. Don't worry, Arne, I won't keep your mate very long. Meghann I can't stay. I've got to start early you know that. Why not start now? Meghann, what have you done to me? That was so wonderful. We should always do it that way. I shouldn't have done it like that this time. You know we can't afford a baby now. Just once isn't going to matter. Or even twice, so long as you know what you're doing. I read up on it.
