Captain Wentworth: I have loved none but you. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone I think and plan. Have you not seen this?

Captain Wentworth: Miss Elliot, I can bear this no longer. You pierce my soul. I'm half agony, half hope. Unjust I may have been. Weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it eight years ago.

Captain Wentworth: [distressed and avoiding making eye contact] I have been charged by the Admiral... That is Admiral Croft has been confidently informed that Mr. Elliot... That everything is now set in your family for a marriage between yourself and Mr. Elliot. It was added that you were to live at Kellynch. The Admiral wished me to say that if this is the case that his lease will be canceled and he and my sister will find themselves another house... What answer should I give the Admiral
Anne Elliot: You will please thank the Admiral for me, but I must tell you that he is utterly misinformed.
[Capt Wentworth suddenly makes eye contact]
Captain Wentworth: [hopeful] Misinformed? Utterly?
Anne Elliot: Quite mistaken.
Captain Wentworth: No truth in any of it?
Anne Elliot: None.

Captain Wentworth: I imagined myself indifferent to her but I was only angry and resentful. Too late... too late I began to understand myself and her. Never have I met her equal in good sense or sweetness of character. She's perfection itself. I've never loved any but her.
Captain Harville: We are talking now of Anne Elliot?
Captain Wentworth: Of course! Who else?
