Jane Eyre (2011)
Mrs. Reed: Her mother was my husband's sister. On his deathbed he exhorted me to care for her. I've always treated her as one of my own. If you accept her at Lowood school, Mr. Brocklehurst, keep a strict eye on her. She has a heart of spite. I'm sorry to say that her worst fault is that of deceit.
Mr. Brocklehurst: You can rest assured that she shall root out the wickedness in this small, ungrateful plant.

Young Jane: You said I was a liar. I'm not. If I were I'd have said I loved you, and I don't. I dislike you less than anybody in the world. People think you are good, but you are bad, and hard-hearted. I will let everyone know what you have done.
Mrs. Reed: Children must be corrected for their faults.
Young Jane: Deceit is not my fault.
Mrs. Reed: You are passionate.
Young Jane: Uncle Reed is in heaven. So are my mother and father. They know how you hate me and wish me dead. They can see, they see everything you do, and they will judge you Mrs. Reed.
Mrs. Reed: Get out.


Jane Eyre (1943)
Mrs. Reed: [introducing Jane] This, Mr. Brocklehurst, is the child in question. She is the daughter of my late sister's husband by an unfortunate union which we in the family prefer to forget. For some years she's lived in this house.


"Jane Eyre: A Death in the Family (#1.6)" (1983)
Mrs. Reed: [speaking to Jane] I should ease my mind before I die. What one thinks little of in life, burdens us at such an hour as this.
