Jane Eyre (2011)
Mr. Brocklehurst: Do you know, Jane Eyre, where the wicked go after death?
Young Jane: They go to hell.
Mr. Brocklehurst: And what is hell?
Young Jane: A pit full of fire.
Mr. Brocklehurst: Should you like to fall into this pit and be burned there forever?
Young Jane: No, sir.
Mr. Brocklehurst: How might you avoid it?
Young Jane: I must keep in good health and not die.

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.

Mr. Brocklehurst: [Helen is about to be beaten by Ms. Scatcherd] I see you are mortifying this girl's flesh.
Miss Scatcherd: Sir, she was not...
Mr. Brocklehurst: It is your mission to render her contrite and self-denying. Continue.
[Ms. Scatcherd begins beating Helen with a rod. Jane drops her chalkboard as a distraction]
Mr. Brocklehurst: And you, girl.
[He has Jane stand on her stool]
Mr. Brocklehurst: This is the pedestal of infamy, and you will remain on it all day long. You will have neither food nor drink for you must learn how barren is the life of a sinner. Children, I exhort you to shun her, exclude her, shut her out from this day forth. Withhold the hand of friendship and deny your love to Jane Eyre, the liar.


Jane Eyre (1943)
Dr. Rivers: You keep your schoolroom uncommonly cold, Mr. Brocklehurst.
Henry Brocklehurst: A matter of principle, Dr. Rivers. Our aim is not to pamper the body but strengthen the soul.

Mr. Brocklehurst: What must you do to avoid it?
Young Jane: Keep well and and not die, sir.


"Jane Eyre: Lowood Institute (#1.2)" (1983)
