Joan Fontaine as Mrs. de Winter: so that no matter what happens, we won't be separated for a moment.
Laurence Olivier as Maxim de Winter: All right dear I don't mind this whole thing, except for you.
I can't forget what it's done to you. I've been thinking of nothing else since it happened. Oh, it's gone forever. That funny, young, lost look I loved won't ever come back. I ... that when I told you about Rebecca. It's gone. In a few hours you've grown so much older.
MRS. DE WINTER: Oh, Maxim, Maxim.
MAXIM: "I'll make a bargain with you," she said. "You'd look rather foolish trying to divorce me now after four days of marriage. So I'll play the part of a devoted wife, mistress of your precious Manderley. I'll make it the most famous showplace in England if you like. Then, people will visit us and envy us, and say we're the luckiest, happiest, couple in the country. What a grand show it will be! What a triumph!"
MAXIM: She was incapable of love or tenderness or decency.
