FIONA CLEARY: Well, well, you can give as good as you getwell, you can give as good as you get. How long have you known? MEGGIE: Since I was a little girlSince I was a little girl. Since Frank went away. FIONA CLEARY: I was 16 when I met him. He was everything that Paddy wasn't. Sophisticated, cultured, charming. I thought I couldn't live without him. But he was an important man a politician and already married. He wasn't about to sacrifice all that for me. I was nothing to his noble ambitionI was nothing to his noble ambition. Just as you're nothing to Ralph's. MEGGIE: I know I can never have Ralph. But at least I've got part of him the Church can never haveI've got part of him the Church can never have. FIONA CLEARY: Yes. That's what I thought. To take of him what I could. To have his child to love at least. But what have I got now? I lost Frank. I paid in the worst way a mother could. And you're going to pay, too. Believe me, God will see to that. MEGGIE: You think I haven't paid already? What else have I ever done but pay for the great sin of loving Ralph de Bricassart? All my life I trod the straight and narrow for fear of God Almighty and what did it get me but a broken heart? No, Mom, I'm not afraid of God anymore. And as for Ralph he'll never know Dane's his unless you tell him. And if you do, I warn you I'll be as merciful to you as you have always been to me! FIONA CLEARY: Yes, you'll beat God himself as I did. MEGGIE: I have beaten God. Dane is mine, and nothing's gonna take him from me. NOTE: To watch the pictures in high resolution, click on them
