: Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest so long as I live on! I killed you. Haunt me, then! Haunt your murderer! I know that ghosts have wandered on the Earth. Be with me always. Take any form, drive me mad, only do not leave me in this dark alone where I cannot find you. I cannot live without my life! I cannot die without my soul.
: If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn't love you as much as I do in a single day.
: Are you enjoying yourself, Heathcliff? Heathcliff
: I've had the pleasure of watching you. Cathy
: You're very grand, Heathcliff. So handsome. Looking at you tonight I could not help but remember how things used to be. Heathcliff
: They used to be better. Cathy
: Don't pretend life hasn't improved for you. Heathcliff
: Life has ended for me.
[they pause and look off the balcony in silence
: How can you stand here beside me and pretend not to remember? Not to know that my heart is breaking for you? That your face is the wonderful light burning in all this darkness? Cathy
: Heathcliff, no. I forbid it. Heathcliff
: Do you forbid what your heart is saying to you now? Cathy
: It's saying nothing. Heathcliff
: I can hear it louder than the music. Oh, Cathy. Cathy. Cathy
: I'm not the Cathy that was. Can you understand that? I'm somebody else. I'm another man's wife, and he loves me. And I love him. Heathcliff
: If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime he couldn't love you as much as I do in a single day. Not he. Not the world. Not even you, Cathy, can come between us. Cathy
: Heathcliff, you must go away. You must leave this house and never come back to it. I never want to see your face again or listen to your voice again as long as I live. Heathcliff
: You lie! Why do you think I'm here tonight? Because you willed it. You willed me here across the sea.
: Heathcliff, make the world stop right here. Make everything stop and stand still and never move again. Make the moors never change and you and I never change. Heathcliff
: The moors and I will never change. Don't you, Cathy. Cathy
: I can't. I can't. No matter what I ever do or say, Heathcliff, this is me now; standing on this hill with you. This is me forever.
: Did Joseph see which way you came? Heathcliff
: What does it matter? Nothing's real down there. Our life is here. Cathy
: Yes, milord.
: It would be dreadful if Hindley ever found out. Heathcliff
: Found out what? That you talk to me once in a while? Cathy
: I shouldn't talk to you at all. Look at you! You get worse every day. Dirty and unkempt and in rags. Why aren't you a man? Heathcliff, why don't you run away? Heathcliff
: Run away? From you? Cathy
: You could come back to me rich and take me away. Why aren't you my prince like we said long ago? Why can't you rescue me, Heathcliff? Heathcliff
: Cathy, come with me now! Cathy
: Where? Heathcliff
: Anywhere! Cathy
: And live in haystacks and steal our food from the marketplaces? No, Heathcliff. That's not what I want. Heathcliff
: You just want to send me off. That won't do. I've stayed here and been beaten like a dog. Abused and cursed and driven man, but I stayed just to be near you. Even as a dog! And I'll stay till the end. I'll live and I'll die under this rock!
: Go on, Heathcliff. Run away. Bring me back the world. Judge Linton
: Pack this fellow off. Heathcliff
: I'm going. I'm going from here and from this cursed country both. Judge Linton
: Throw him out! Heathcliff
: But I'll be back in this house one day, Judge Linton and I'll pay you out. I'll bring this house down in ruins about your heads. That's my curse on you!
[spits on the floor
: On all of you!
: I want to crawl to her feet, whimper to be forgiven... for loving me. For needing her more than my own life... for belonging to her more than my own soul.
: You could come back to me rich and take me away. Why aren't you my prince like we said long ago? Why can't you rescue me Heathcliff? Heathcliff
: Cathy, come with me now. Cathy
: Where? Heathcliff
: Anywhere. Cathy
: And live in haystacks and steal our food from the marketplaces? No Heathcliff, that's not what I want. Heathcliff
: You just want to send me off. That won't do. I've stayed here and been beaten like a dog, abused and cursed and driven mad, but I stayed just to be near you, even as a dog. And I'll stay 'til the end. I'll live and I'll die under this rock.
: Tell the dirty stable boy to let go of you. He soiled your pretty dress. But who soiled your heart? Not Heathcliff. Who turns you into a vain, cheap, worldly fool? Linton does. You'll never love him, but you'll let yourself be loved because it pleases your stupid, greedy vanity.
: Why are your eyes always empty? Like Linton's eyes. Isabella
: They're not empty, if you'd only look deeper. Look at me. I'm pretty. I'm a woman and I love you. You're all of life to me. Let me be a single breath of it for you.
: My tears don't love you, Cathy. They blight and curse and damn you! Cathy
: Heathcliff, don't break my heart. Heathcliff
: Oh Cathy, I never broke your heart. You broke it!
: Well, what brought about this amazing transformation? Did you discover a gold mine in the New World, or perhaps you fell heir to a fortune? Heathcliff
: The truth is I remembered that my father was an emperor of China and my mother was an Indian queen, and I went out and claimed my inheritance. It all turned out just as you once suspected, Cathy: that I had been kidnapped by wicked sailors and brought to England; that I was of noble birth.
: If you ever looked at me once with what I know is in you, I'd be your slave. Cathy, if your heart were only stronger than your dull fear of God and the world, I'd live contented, silently in your shadow. But No. You must destroy us both with that weakness you call virtue.
: I cannot live without my life! I cannot die without my soul!
Cathy, as a child
: Oh, it's a wonderful castle! Heathcliff, let's never leave it. Heathcliff, as a child
: Never in our lives! Let all the world confess, that there is not in all the world a more beautiful damsel than the Princess Catherine of Yorkshire. Cathy, as a child
: But I - I'm still your slave. Heathcliff, as a child
: No, Cathy. I now make you my queen. Whatever happens out there, here you will always be my queen.
: Perhaps your fortune has changed you. Heathcliff
: Oh, my fortune has changed me in every regard. Except one. And if I could change that too, I would do so.
: What's that? There's a look in your eyes. My God, I think it's guilt. You've been with him, haven't you? You've laid with Edgar, haven't you? Cathy
: He's my husband. Heathcliff
: As if your pretend marriage matters to me? How am I to look at you? How am I to touch you now that his milky feeble hands have held you as I'm holding you now, you disgust me.
: Going somewhere? Cathy
: Where would I go, my love? It's raining. Heathcliff
: Yet you have that silk frock on, my love. Heathcliff
: Someone coming here, perhaps? Cathy
: Perhaps. Heathcliff
: Edgar Linton? Cathy
: [freeing her head from Nellie's fussing hands
] I said enough, Nellie... Let me alone! Heathcliff
: [slowly walking towards Cathy
] Three months ago we lay together yet since then every evening is spent with the Lintons! Cathy
: Perhaps I find Edgar easier company. Perhaps he doesn't talk of curses and fall into a brooding silence. Heathcliff
: So you dislike my company? Cathy
: It's no company at all when people know nothing and say nothing. Heathcliff
: [hurt, and giving away as much
] Yeah... There. At last you said that I am no longer worthy of you. Heathcliff
] I say, may you suffer for this. Cathy
: [holding back tears
] So I am cursed too, am I? Heathcliff
: No, I am the one that is truly cursed. I was cursed the moment I laid eyes on you.
: Well, I must compliment you on your taste, Cathy. This is the slavering thing you would prefer to me?
: We will wander these moors for all eternity.
: I would die a thousand deaths if I knew she were waiting for me!
: Why are you refusing to see me? Heathcliff
: Cause I don't know you. Hindley's right, that little savage is lost and it was her that I loved. Cathy
: I know you. And I love you. Heathcliff
: In the way a mistress loves a servant? Cathy
: No. Heathcliff
: Come away with me then, as we planned. There.
[points to her face
: It's your pause that betrays you. Cathy
: I'm frightened. Heathcliff
: Of what? Of me? Or poverty? Cathy
: You're asking me to risk my reputation. Once a woman's reputation is gone she has nothing. Heathcliff
] The old Cathy would never have said such a thing. Cathy
: The old Cathy didn't know the world and how it regarded... Heathcliff
: [grabs Cathy, interrupting her
] I tried to leave you. Your love holds me here. Now if you mean to be indifferent to me as least do me the favor of releasing me.
: [watches a smiling Heathcliff enter
] Do not smile, my love... Heathcliff
: If I tell you why I am smiling, I think you will smile too. Cathy
: [almost whispering
] Tell me... Heathcliff
: As Hindley was flogging me, I chanted a curse you know... He has lost the only person who ever loved him. Cathy
] You cannot welcome the death of a baby's mother! Heathcliff
: I will welcome anything that makes Hindley suffer. Cathy
: [quietly commands Heathcliff
] Say you're sorry for talking like this my love... Heathcliff
] I am not sorry. Cathy
] Sometimes I think your true passion is hate rather than love.
: [contemplative, facing the fireplace, upon hearing someone walk in
] If that's you, Nellie, then I am sorry for scolding you. I wish now that you had stayed. Heathcliff
: [walking up to Cathy
] It is not Nellie, it is I.
[while Cathy still refuses to look into his eyes
: Why, Cathy, what is it? What's the matter? Cathy
: [finally looking up and at him, solemnly
] Edgar Linton has asked me to marry him. Heathcliff
: [searching Cathy's eyes
] And, have you given him your answer?
[Cathy nods negatively
: But you did not say no!
[Cathy nods negatively, again
: And have you considered how you will bear the separation from me, and how I would be quite deserted in the world without you?
[pauses for a moment
: Did you consider that? Cathy
: You quite deserted! We separated! Who is to separate us, pray? Heathcliff
: [stressing his each word
] You would be Mrs. Linton. Cathy
: Yes. As Mrs. Linton I can aid you to rise and place you out of my brother's power. Heathcliff
: [with controlled indignation
] With your husband's money you'll rescue me...
[walking away from Cathy towards the door, and then turning back
: Do you think I can endure such a thing?
[Cathy rushes to Heathcliff, attempts to kiss him
: [holding Cathy back, accentuating each word, with loathing
] You will be Mrs. Linton.
: [bending over Cathy's coffin
] You said I'd killed you... Haunt me then... Be with me always... Take any form, drive me mad but don't leave me. In this abyss where I cannot find you... I cannot live without my life, I cannot live without my soul...
: Now, my bonny lad, you're mine. Let's see if one tree won't grow as crooked as another, with the same wind to twist it.
: Misery and degradation and death and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you of your own will, did it. I have not broken your heart - you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine.
: Why did you betray your own heart, Cathy? You loved me. And what right had you to leave me? The poor fancy you felt for Linton? Nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us. You of your own will did it. I've not broken your heart Cathy, you have broken it. And in breaking it, you've broken mine.
: I pray one prayer, I repeat it till my tongue stiffens. Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living! You said I killed you, haunt me, then!... Be with me always, take any form, drive me mad, only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you!... I cannot live without my life. I cannot live without my soul.
: You left me, too, but I forgive you. Forgive me. Heathcliff
: It's so hard... to forgive alone, it's a lie. Yes, I forgive what you've done to me. I love my murderer. But yours... how can I?
