The Canterville Ghost (1985) (TV)
Virginia Otis: If you're a ghost, how can you bump into things?
Sir Simon de Canterville: Oh, I do it sometimes for effect. Can't keep it up for long. I begin to fade. Oh. Confound those pestering brothers of yours! In 500 years of dignified haunting, I have never been subject to such impudence!
Virginia Otis: Dignified haunting? You've hardly been a gentleman. You've frightened my mother, my father hasn't had a night of rest and now my brothers are all in trouble because of you.
Sir Simon de Canterville: Oh, what is the use? I'm losing my touch. I can't even pull off a good scare anymore. The people of your century are so cruel and unfeeling. I thought you were different.
Virginia Otis: Oh, but I am. So different that nobody even wants me for a friend.
Sir Simon de Canterville: But why do you want to be like the rest? When I was alive, I was different, and proud of it.


The Canterville Ghost (1996) (TV)
Virginia 'Ginny' Otis: When a gentle girl can win a prayer from out the lips of sin/when a child gives up tears and the barren almond bears/when the silent chapel bell sounds the ghostly sinners knell/then shall all the house be still, and peace shall come to Canterville.
