Johnny Belinda (1948)
Dr. Robert Richardson: There's only one shame - failing a human being that needs you.
Locky McCormick: [to the trembling Belinda as he is about to rape her] Your heart's poundin'. I caught a sea gull once. It had the same scared look.
Dr. Robert Richardson: Your Lordship, I insist this girl obeyed an impulse older than the laws of man: the instinct of a mother to protect her child.
Aggie McDonald: It's hard to be born and it's hard to die.
Stella McCormick: He's a... something even you can't pronounce!
Locky McCormick: Probably something not fit to mention.
Dr. Robert Richardson: I have to get cash somewhere, and you and some of the others are the only ones who can afford it.
Dr. Robert Richardson: Hello, Aggie. You got back all right?
Aggie McDonald: Wouldn't be here if I hadn't, would I?
Dr. Robert Richardson: Is your sister better?
Aggie McDonald: Yes.
Dr. Robert Richardson: Did she have a good doctor?
Aggie McDonald: Don't have any. Doesn't believe in them.
Dr. Robert Richardson: Well, that's the right attitude as long as one can afford it.
