The River (1951)
Valerie: This... being together... in the garden. All of us happy, and you with us here, I didn't want it to change... and it's changed. I didn't want it to end... and it's gone. It was like something in a dream. Now you've made it real. I didn't want to be real.
Narration: All wrapped up in Hoppity, her rabbit, was little Victoria.
Harriet: Victoria, what are you doing to Hoppity?
Victoria: Hoppity is my baby. He's just being born.
Harriet: But, you had it born last week?
Victoria: Babies can be born again and again, can't they.
Nan: Another red head. Harriet one. Valerie two. Now, there's three. That means trouble.
Valerie: That's funny. Usually I hate men. I often think, do you know what, that I ought to be a nun.
Capt. John: Ha-ha-ha. All little kittens think that.
Valerie: Little kitten. I went to a party last Christmas and they thought I was 18.
Capt. John: What happens when they think you're 18?
Valerie: It was very silly. But, I liked it.
Harriet: Oh, I do hope I'm loved as much as Cleopatra.
Melanie: I shouldn't liked to be loved out loud like Cleopatra.
Harriet: I should! The louder the better. I want everyone to know about me and I want to be loved by hundreds of men.
Melanie: One person's love is enough for one person.
Harriet: Ten minutes ago, she wasn't born. And, tomorrow, we'll be used to her. And yesterday, we...
Valerie: Bother yesterday.
Melanie: This is today.
Harriet: And today. Here is the baby. The baby and us. The big river. The whole world and everything.
