The Thorn Birds movie 31 | How easily you command the fates of your men

Quotes from film part 31

But I'm a better actress than you think. I'm not about to let you into the dark recesses of my mind and risk scaring you away. I need you too much. Not only insulting, but selfish. We knew that, didn't we? Anyway, I'm not disappointed about Dane. I think he's mad to give up Rome but Drogheda's home to him. He's always belonged to it in a way I never could. That's no failing on your part. If you don't belong to Drogheda, it's because it simply isn't you. Sometimes I wonder where I do belong. Sometimes I feel a little lost. Usually, in fact, unless I'm actually performing. Do you think there's such a thing as off-stage fright? It's very simple, Justine. You belong with me. Oh, really? In Bonn? Do grow up. What do you think, I'd want to turn you into a Hausfrau? Obviously for people like us it isn't a question of place, it's a question of love. I've grown to love you very much. I think you love me, too. It could never work. I told you that from the first. But, Herzen No, I can't. You'll get it wet. "As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods. "They kill us for their sport." Poor Lear. Poor me, you mean. Fancy me in the role of Cordelia. How's the water? It's a pretty strong undertow, but it's wonderful. Communing with mighty Neptune. Really, Father O'Neill, too pagan of you. You'll be excommunicated. Your soul's already in mortal danger as it is. Don't tell me you haven't noticed those two dying for you. He's cute. I wonder how we can meet him. They'd be after you like a shark if I weren't protecting you. I'll tell you something I have noticed, sister. I've noticed that you haven't given me a straight answer as to what you're doing here in Greece with me. Now, you can tell me anything, my child. Remember, I am a priest. All right. It's Rain. He wants me to marry him. That's wonderful! Jus, I hoped it would be something like this. You did? The man's been in love with you for ages. But I can't marry him. I've always said I'd never marry anyone. This is hardly the time to stand on principle. I thought you'd understand at least. I'm sorry. But if you love him But that's just it! I don't think I can love anyone. I don't think I've got it in me. You know how it's always been with me. I know you've always been able to love me. That's different. You're my brother. Besides, if I love you it's because you've always accepted me, warts and all. Because I'm such a saint? Isn't that how it goes? Saint Dane? Look, Jus. All our lives, you've always known that I was the favorite. A lot of sisters might have hated me for it. But you never gave me anything but love. That's because I always used to deny it when you said that Mom didn't love you. Always used to imply that somehow if you just tried harder everything would be all right. Because I couldn't bear the thought of Mom being unloving. I couldn't stand the guilt of getting your share as well as mine. The truth is that Mom didn't love you the way she should. She didn't show you the love you should have had. I know it's hard for her, knowing that. It isn't that you can't love. It is that you've been made to feel that you don't deserve to be loved. But you do. You do. Jussie! Are you coming? Where were you all morning? Rain's coming. Right now. Really? I'll be right up. Go commune with mighty Neptune awhile, all right? Lt'll be all right. Hello. Where's our new Father O'Neill? I sent him out for a dip. He'll be up later. You see how easily you command the fates of your men. I hardly think I commanded you to come. But you must admit your wire was much too intriguing to resist. "Did you mean it, Rain?" Did I mean what, Herzen? That you love me. Is that what all this is about? Why else would you have come? Why else? To salvage what I could of friendship. I'll settle for that, if I must. Look, sport, you're the one who changed the status quo between us, not I. And you want what now, an apology for that? If I offered one, you'd throw me out like a smelly, old rag. I can do that yet, mate. But you won't because you need me to keep you on the hop. Is that why you came? What do you think? I think you're a prize sadist. Say you love me again, you big kraut, and watch me spit in your eye! And you would, too. You'd love to have another chance to humiliate me for the unpardonable sin of finding you worth loving. You can't stand it, can you? It goes against everything you believe about yourself. God, Rain. I'm sorry. I was going to tell you that I love you and that I want you. I'm such an ass. I had this marvelous seduction scene all planned. Poor darling. You could still show me how it would've gone. What? Look, he just went in. Let's meet him, okay? Okay, let's go. We've got him all to ourselves. It's cold. Let me up here. Careful! The undertow is strong. Help! All right, hang on! I'm coming! I don't deserve to be this happy. Why didn't all this happen years ago? Because you weren't ready. I'm not sure I am now. Too late. Where are you going? I bought you a Christmas present in the market. Just in case you did come. What is it? Nothing. Just some people on the beach. I expect we'll hear all about it from Dane.
