The Thorn Birds movie 32 | Dane was your son, too, yours and mine

Quotes from film part 32

I'm so glad you're here. It wouldn't be Christmas without Anne and Luddie. How many have we missed in the last 20 years? There. Watch your step. What do you think? I think it's going to be the best Christmas ever. Luddie, you say that every year. I'll get it. Thank you, Judy. You know, Luddie may be right this time. I did think of having a do for the whole district. But I'm not certain Dane would want that. I think it's best to wait and talk to him first. He said so little in his letter. Mind you, Bob and Jack did say he seemed very happy about coming home. You don't seem quite as thrilled as I thought you would be, somehow. Anne, I am. Of course, I am. It's just that I hope it's what he really wants. I hope he's not just doing it for my sake. When he went to Ralph, I vowed that I would never try to influence him. Is that the reason you didn't go to Rome? Which, by the way, I personally haven't forgiven you for. I know. Nor has Jussie, or the boys or Mom. Although I think at least she understands it. It's just that I felt it would be tempting fate to go. Or tempting God. Meggie, how absurd! I know. Fancy what Jussie would make of it. But I fought God so hard for so long that I wanted to show him finally that I could accept the fact that Dane and Ralph are his not mine. I sacrificed the chance to go in hopes of making peace with God at last. Don't question why Dane is coming home. Take it as a sign of peace. What's the matter? Mom? What is it? Dane is dead. No. He's coming home. Jussie telephoned. He drowned. He was trying to save somebody. He's dead. Father we entrust unto you Dane whom we loved so much in this life. Welcome him into Paradise where there will be no more sorrow or pain no more weeping but only peace and joy with your Son and with the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen. The Lord is merciful and kind and rich in mercy. Man's days are like the grass. He flowers like the flowers of the field. The wind blows and he is gone and his place never sees him again. How will we live without him? We will. Your God gathers in the good ones and leaves the living to those of us who fail. Your greedy God. There is no peace with him. Meggie, no. No more. What can God do to me now? What more do I have to lose? Your soul. Your heart. Your love. The love you've always had within you, despite everything. Despite everything but this. I loved you, Ralph. I never stopped loving you despite everything. Despite the fact that you were never mine. What part of you I got, I had to steal. But that part was the best. Because that part was Dane. Dane was your son, too. Yours and mine. It isn't true. He was your son, Ralph. And you couldn't see it. Couldn't see that he was just a more perfect version of you. Couldn't love me enough to see that I would never have gone back to Luke or to any man after you. And now you say it isn't true. Poor Ralph. Poor Cardinal de Bricassart.
