Quotes

Dickon: I've watched thee go about the garden. There's no way in.

Mary Lennox: In where?

Dickon: The secret garden. He locked the gate long years ago.

Mary Lennox: Who locked the gate?

Dickon: The master. Lord Craven, thy uncle.

Mary Lennox: What do you know about it?

Dickon: I know what's said. He locked the gate and buried the key, and nary's a soul been in there since.

Mary Lennox: I don't believe you. Do you know why I don't believe you? Because there isn't any gate. I've looked.

Dickon: Eh, so've I.

Mary Lennox: What were you doing watching me?

Dickon: I came to play with thee. My mother thought thou might be lonely.

Mary Lennox: Well, I'm not, and I don't play with any servant's brother. I never heard of anything so ridiculous. Thou can just go home.

[Dickon laughs]

Mary Lennox: I mean, you can just go home.

Mary Lennox: What's that?

Dickon: A fox cub. His name's Captain.

Mary Lennox: Dickon, are you still angry with me?

Dickon: When was I ever angry with thee?

Mary Lennox: Oh, good. Dickon, I've got so many secrets I'm just dying.

Dickon: Thou seems most healthy.

Mary Lennox: Dickon, I need you. All you have to do is listen. What good is a secret if there's no one to tell it to?

Colin Craven: You don't even care how I won't live to grow up.

Mary Lennox: Stop it. You'll live as long as I will. You just say that to make people feel sorry for you and do what you say.

Colin Craven: Don't you dare say that! Don't you dare say how I won't die!

Mary Lennox: Why, you're proud of it. It makes you feel important.

Dickon: And Ben said he loved her, and I said, what of that? Is loving someone a reason to kill? And Ben said, how old are thee?

Colin Craven: My father must've loved my mother very much.

Mary Lennox: I suppose we're not old enough. There must be an awful lot we don't know. I don't want to grow up.
