Maurice (1987)
Alec Scudder: Was you calling for me, Sir? I know, Sir. It's all right. I know, Sir.

Alec Scudder: Tomorrow's Thursday. Friday's packing. Saturday's Southampton, so it's goodbye, Old England.
Maurice Hall: You mean that you and I shan't meet again after now?
Alec Scudder: That's right, you've got it quite correct.
Maurice Hall: Stay with me.
Alec Scudder: Stay? Miss my boat? You daft? Of all the bloody rubbish. Order me about again, you would.
Maurice Hall: It's a chance in a thousand we met. You know it. Why don't you stay?
Alec Scudder: Stay? With you? How? And where? With your Ma? Oh yeah. What would she say if she saw me? All rough and ugly the way I am. My people wouldn't take to you one bit. I don't blame them, either. And how would you run your job, I'd like to know?
Maurice Hall: I shall chuck it.
Alec Scudder: Your job in the City? What gives you money and position? You talk like a man who's never had to earn his living.
Maurice Hall: You can do anything. Once you know what it is. We can live without money, without people. We can live without position. We're not fools. We're both strong. There'd be some place we could go.
Alec Scudder: Wouldn't work, Maurice. Be the ruin of
[pauses; sits down]
Alec Scudder: us both. Can't you see?

Alec Scudder: Now, we shan't never be parted. It's finished.

Alec Scudder: [Writing a letter to Maurice] Pretend to the other gentlemen that you want a stroll. It's easily managed. Then come down to the boathouse. Dear Sir, let me share with you once before leaving Old England if it's not asking too much.

Alec Scudder: You shouldn't treat me like a dog! You were just amusing yourself. I've never come like that to a gentleman before. You said 'Call me Maurice' but you never even wrote to me. You made a fool of me and I can make you sorry for that!

Alec Scudder: Stop with me. Sleep the night with me.
Maurice Hall: I can't. I've got an engagement. Full business dinner. It's my job. Meet me another evening instead.
Alec Scudder: I can't come to London again. My father and Mr. Borenius will be passing remarks.
Maurice Hall: What does it matter if they do?
Alec Scudder: What does your engagement matter?

Maurice Hall: Let me just have a word with Scudder, here. Something's up at the mission.
[walks off from his friends to talk to Alec]
Alec Scudder: "Scudder", is it? "Alec, you're a dear fellow", you said. Are you ashamed to be seen with me? You're not glad, anyway. Don't say you are.
Maurice Hall: Of course I'm glad.
Alec Scudder: Then why didn't you come to the boathouse? I waited two night, I got no sleep waiting.
