Gone with the Wind (1939)
Melanie Hamilton: [at the door of an enclosed carriage] Who is it?
Belle Watling: It's Miss Watling
Melanie Hamilton: Oh, Miss Watling, won't you come in the house?
Belle Watling: Oh, no, I couldn't do that Mrs Wilkes; you come in and set a minute with me
[Melanie gets in & sits beside Belle]
Melanie Hamilton: How can I thank you enough for what you did for us? How can any of us thank you enough?
Belle Watling: I got your note saying you were going to call on me and thank me. Oh Mrs Wilkes, you must have lost your mind. I come up here as soon as it was dark to tell you you mustn't even think of such things. Why I'm... Why you're... Well it wouldn't be fittin' at all
Melanie Hamilton: Wouldn't be fitting for me to call on a kind woman who saved my husband's life?
Belle Watling: Mrs Wilkes, there ain't never been a woman in town that's been nice to me the way you was; I mean about the money for the hospital, you know, and I don't forget a kindness. I got to thinkin' about you bein' left a widow, with a little boy - he's a nice little boy, your boy, Mrs Wilkes. I got a boy myself...
Melanie Hamilton: Oh you have? Does he live
Belle Watling: Oh, no, he ain't in Atlanta; he ain't never been here. He's off at school. I ain't seen him since he was little, and I... Well, anyways, if it had been that Mrs Kennedy's husband by himself, I wouldn't lift a finger to help. She's a mighty cold woman, prancin' about Atlanta by herself. She killed her husband, same as if she shot him
Melanie Hamilton: You mustn't say unkind things about my sister-in-law
Belle Watling: Oh. Please don't haze me Mrs Wilkes; I forgot how you liked her. But she just ain't in the same class with you, and I can't help it if I think so. Well, anyways, I gotta be goin'. I'm scared somebody'll recognize this carriage if I stay here any longer; that wouldn't do you no good. And Mrs Wilkes, if you ever see me on the street, you don't have to speak to me; I'll understand
Melanie Hamilton: I shall be proud to speak to you, proud to be under obligation to you. I hope we meet again
Belle Watling: Oh, no, that wouldn't be fittin'. Goodnight Mrs Wilkes
Melanie Hamilton: Goodnight Miss Watling.
[Melanie gets out of the carriage]
Melanie Hamilton: And you're wrong about Mrs Kennedy; she's broken hearted about her husband
