: [Speaking about Poldark
] Do you have a case against him? George Warleggan
: We have three or four good witnesses who'll swear against him. Nicholas Warleggan
: If they don't, they won't be paid. George Warleggan
: One's a discharged servant nursing his grudge as you nurse your guineas. Nicholas Warleggan
: Now, speakin' of that, how mu... George Warleggan
: Only a guinea or two, Father. Nicholas Warleggan
: Mmm. I want to see Poldark hang, but I don't want to be bankrupted. George Warleggan
: You have great faith in hope, Father. Put more faith in cash, and you won't be disappointed.
: [Half drunkenly
] Are you here for the elections or to see Ross hanged, drawn, and quartered? George Warleggan
: For the elections as everyone else. Francis Poldark
: Ah, have you got money invested in the elections as well? My dear George, you've got your dirty little fingers in every pie, haven't you? George Warleggan
: Francis, I don't... Francis Poldark
: You know, I doubt there's a profitable pie in the whole of Cornwall that you Warleggan blackbirds aren't comfortably baked in.
: What's this? George Warleggan
: A list of our witnesses bought and paid for. Nicholas Warleggan
: Eight? How much did they cost? George Warleggan

: There has been not one such as my son in any family, Nicholas Warleggan
: Does Elizabeth like it? George Warleggan
: She will when I tell her. Ours is a union of the old gentry and the new. We need a new name. Nicholas Warleggan
: You won't get away from Warleggan. George Warleggan
: I shall never wish to. It is too respected and feared. Nicholas Warleggan
: Fear can be bad for business. George Warleggan
: Respect and fear are one.
: [to Elizabeth
] Education demands discipline as well as instruction.
: Love and jealousy are part of the same face.
: [Entering the room
] If you are here on the business I suppose, then let me tell you it is useless to appal to me. Ross Poldark
: That I believe. Compassion was never your strongest point.
: [to Ross
] Damn you and Goddamn your family! Lord Devoran
: Gentlemen! This does not become either of you! Ross Poldark
] We do it all the time.
: [to Rev. Whitworth
] A man who can bargain is worth his price.
: I know you have certain moves afoot against Prescott's Bank. George Warleggan
: Moves that we cannot make until that old fool Pearce expires. For a man who's been expected to meet his maker at any time during the past six weeks, he's showing a remarkable facility for holding off the appointment.
: [Referring to Ross
] Forgive me, Elizabeth, but he's the last man to advise anyone on anything. His own situation is desperate. Elizabeth Poldark
: That's how Ross likes to live... on the edge of the pit. George Warleggan
: Too hot a place for most of us,
