Fun Stuff

From "Brideshead Revisited: A Twitch Upon the Thread (#1.10)" (1981)
Cordelia Flyte: Tell me, Charles. When you first met me last night, did you think "Poor Cordelia. Such an engaging child, grown into a plain and pious spinster, full of good works"? Did you think "thwarted"?
Charles Ryder: [chuckles] Yes, I did. But now I'm not so sure.
Cordelia Flyte: It's funny, you know. That's exactly the word I thought for you and Julia when I saw you up in the nursery with Nanny - "thwarted passion", I thought.
