The Village (2004)
Ivy Walker: My sister cried alot. You wonder how I recognize you? Some people - just a handful, mind you - give off the tiniest color. It's faint. Like a haze. It's the only thing I ever see in the darkness. Papa has it, too. Do you wonder what your color is? Well, that I won't tell you. It's not ladylike to speak of such things. You shouldn't even have asked.
[pause]
Lucius Hunt: You run like a boy.
Ivy Walker: Thank you. I know why you denied my sister. When I was younger... you used to hold my arm when I walked. Then suddenly you stopped. One day, I even tripped in your presence and nearly fell. I was faking, of course, but still you did not hold me. Sometimes we don't do things we want to do so that others won't know we want to do them.

Ivy Walker: [to Noah] What's this? Oh, berries. What a splendid present.
[laughs]
Lucius Hunt: Be cautious. You are holding the bad color.
Ivy Walker: [gasping] ... This color attracts Those We Do Not Speak Of. You must bury it. You ought not to pick that color berry anymore.
Lucius Hunt: ...He picked it from his pocket.
Ivy Walker: What's wrong? Your breathing has changed.
Lucius Hunt: I've never set eyes on these before.
[to Noah]
Lucius Hunt: You did not pick that now. Where did you find this?

Ivy Walker: [after Noah hands her some red berries] Oh, berries! What a splendid present!
Lucius Hunt: Be cautious. You are holding the bad color.
Ivy Walker: [becomes worried, covers the berries with her hands] This color attracts Those We Don't Speak Of.
[Turning to Noah]
Ivy Walker: You ought not pick that color berry anymore.
[Noah nods]
Lucius Hunt: [In a hushed whisper] He picked it from his pocket.
Ivy Walker: Your breathing has changed. What's wrong?
Lucius Hunt: [to Noah] If you did not pick this now, where did you get it?
[Noah takes Lucius's hand and leads him through the forest. Cut to scene where we hear Lucius addressing the Elders]
Lucius Hunt: Today at Resting Rock, Noah Percy handed Ivy Walker berries of the bad color. When asked where he had found these berries, for they were unlike any I have seen, he pointd to the drawing on Resting Rock. It is my belief that Noah has entered the woods, and has done so on many occasions. It is also my belief that, because of his innocence, those creatures who reside in the woods did not harm him. This strengthens my feeling that they will let me pass if they sense I am not a threat.

Lucius Hunt: Are you upset you can't see?
Ivy Walker: I see the world Lucius Hunt, not as you see it.

Ivy Walker: I heard my parents speaking of you... you wish to go to the towns. I think it is noble but I do not think it is right.
Lucius Hunt: Are you not angry you have no sight?
Ivy Walker: I see the world, Lucius, I do. Just not as you see it.
Lucius Hunt: ...What of Noah, then? What if there are medicines that could help him be still and to learn?
Ivy Walker: May we stop speaking of this, it is putting knots in my stomach.
[walks then turns]
Ivy Walker: ... Kitty, is to be married. She's found love... again. It's Christop Crane. You'd think an odd match though. He won't sit back in his chair for fear of setting wrinkles in his shirt. But he does have a gentlemanly way about him. And he does care for my sister... deeply. I think Kitty is blessed... I am blessed as well. My older sister is now spoken for. I am now free to receive interest from anyone. Who might have interest?
[smiles and turns, goes in the house]
Ivy Walker: Has anyone seen Noah?
[goes to closet, opens, gets a blanket, and closes the door and leaves]
Noah Percy: [hiding in closet, watches Ivy leave and laughs silently]

Ivy Walker: I heard my parents speaking of you. I know of your request to go to the towns. I think it is noble, but I do not think it is right.
[pause]
Lucius Hunt: Are you not angry you have no sight?
Ivy Walker: [whispering] I see the world, Lucius Hunt. Just not as you see it.
[pause]
Lucius Hunt: [quietly] What of Noah, then? What if there are medicines for Noah, that could help him be still and to learn?
Ivy Walker: May we stop speaking of this? It is putting knots in my stomach.
[Ivy turns away, then turns back]
Ivy Walker: [whispering] Kitty is to be married. She's found love, again, with Christop Crane. You think it an odd choice, right? You know, he won't sit back in his chair for fear of setting wrinkles in his shirts. But he does have a gentlemanly way about him... and he does care for my sister, deeply. I think Kitty is blessed. I am blessed as well. My older sister is now spoken for. I am now free to receive interest from anyone... who might have interest.

Ivy Walker: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?
Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night.

Lucius Hunt: I am not the one with secrets.
Alice Hunt: What is your meaning?
Lucius Hunt: There are secrets in every corner of this village. Do you not feel it? Do you not see it?

Alice Hunt: And what makes you think that he has feelings for me?
Lucius Hunt: The way he never touches you.

Lucius Hunt: There are different types of love.

Lucius Hunt: [reading a letter to the elders] My mother is unaware of the reason for my visit today. She did not give her consent or consult me in any form. The passing of little Daniel Nicholson from illness, and other events have weighed on my thoughts. I ask permission to cross into the forbidden woods and travel to the nearest town. I will gather new medicines, and I will return. With regards to Those We Don't Speak Of, I am certain they will let me pass. Creatures can sense emotion and fear. They will see I am pure of intention and not afraid. The end.

Lucius Hunt: Sometimes we don't do things, yet others know we want to do things so we don't do them.
Alice Hunt: What nonsense do you speak?
Lucius Hunt: You needn't worry. Nothing will happen to me.
Alice Hunt: You remind me of a colt sometimes.

Ivy Walker: [after Noah hands her some red berries] Oh, berries! What a splendid present!
Lucius Hunt: Be cautious. You are holding the bad color.
Ivy Walker: [becomes worried, covors the berries with her hands] This color attracts Those We Don't Speak Of.
[Turning to Noah]

It is my knowledge that Noah has traveled into the woods on many occasions. It also confirms my belief that the creatures did not harm Noah because of his innocence, and they would let me through to fetch medicines.

Lucius Hunt: Do you not wish you had your sight?
Ivy Walker: I see the world, Lucius Hunt. Just not as you see it.

Ivy Walker: How is it that you are so brave while the rest of us shake in our boots?
Lucius Hunt: I don't think of what might happen, only what must be done.

Lucius Hunt: You run like a boy.
Ivy Walker: Thank you.

Ivy Walker: I do long to do boy things. Like that game the boys play at the stump. They put their backs to the woods and see how long they can wait before getting scared. It's so exciting. I understand you hold the record? It will never be broken they say.
Lucius Hunt: It's just childish games.

Ivy Walker: [Ivy sits straight up in bed and walks out to the porch, then sits down next to Lucius] The elders are going to have an inquiry tomorrow. Each member of the village is to be questioned in the meeting hall.
Lucius Hunt: To see how the borders were breached?
Ivy Walker: Yes.
Lucius Hunt: It is cold outside. You ought to go in.
Ivy Walker: Why are you on this porch?
Lucius Hunt: It is not safe.
Ivy Walker: There are other porches... Do you find me too much of a tomboy? I do long to do boy things - like that game the boys play at the stump. They put their backs to the woods, and see how long they can wait before getting scared. That's so exciting. I understand you hold the record. It will never be broken, they say.
Lucius Hunt: It is just children's games.
Ivy Walker: How is it you are brave, when all the rest of us shake in our boots?
Lucius Hunt: I do not worry about what will happen, only what needs to be done... How did you know I was here?
Ivy Walker: I saw you out the window. No, I won't tell you your color. Stop asking. When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable... Why can you not say what is in your head?
Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance, I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak, I will open my mouth and speak.

What gain can rise from my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do... is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And, yes... I will dance with you on our wedding night.
