Cathy: Forgive me, Heathcliff. Make the world stop right here. Make everything stop and stand still and never move again. Make the moors never change and you and I never change.
Heathcliff: The moors and I will never change. Don't you, Cathy.
Cathy: I can't. No matter what I ever do or say, this is me now. Standing on this hill with you. This is me forever. Come. When you went away, what did you do? Where did you go?
Heathcliff: I went to Liverpool. One night I shipped for America on a brigantine going to New Orleans. We were held up by the tide, and I lay all night on the deck thinking of you and the years and years ahead without you. I jumped overboard and swam ashore.
Cathy: I think I'd have died if you hadn't.
Heathcliff: You're not thinking of that other world now.
Cathy: Smell the heather. Fill my arms with heather. All they can hold. Come on.
Heathcliff: You're still my queen!
Heathcliff: I'm not talking to a child. I'm talking to my Cathy.
Cathy: Oh, I'm your Cathy?
Cathy: I'm to take your orders and allow you to select my dresses?
Heathcliff: You're not gonna simper in front of him, listening to his silly talk!
Cathy: I'm not?
Cathy: Well, I am. It's more entertaining that listening to a stable boy.
Heathcliff: Don't you talk like that.
Cathy: I will. Go away. This is my room, a lady's room, not a room for servants with dirty hands. Let me alone!
Heathcliff: Yes. Tell the dirty stable boy to let go of you. He soils your pretty dress. But who soils your heart? Not Heathcliff! Who turns you into a vain, cheap, worldly fool? Linton does! You'll never love him, but you'll let yourself be loved to please your vanity. Loved by that milksop with buckles on his shoes!
Cathy: Stop it and get out! You had your chance to be something else. But thief or servant were all you were born to be, or beggar beside a road. Not earning favors, but whimpering for them with your dirty hands!
Heathcliff: That's all I've become to you: a pair of dirty hands. Well, have them then! Have them where they belong!
Cathy: The fool. He shouId have known I love him. I love him! HeathcIiff, come back!
The Emily Brontė novel on which the film is based is one of the greatest books of its kind.
