Paradise Lagoon (1957)
Lady Brocklehurst: George... Listen when anyone begins to answer with "The fact is... "
Brocklehurst: But why, mother?
Lady Brocklehurst: Because that is, usually, the beginning of a lie.
Bill Crichton: One can't recapture a dream. Don't spoil it by trying to.
Lord Loam: They'll get used to the idea.
Bill Crichton: I sincerely hope not, my lord.
Lord Loam: None of that, now. Surely you don't object to meeting me as man-to-man. Haven't I always treated you as a human being?
Bill Crichton: No, certainly not, my lord. Your treatment of me has always been as it should be.
Lord Loam: That's enough. This afternoon at 4 o'clock, you will be my equal. I'll soon show you whether you are my equal or not.
Bill Crichton: Oh...
Lord Loam: You do as you are told!
Lady Mary: Father! He said Catherine has been arrested!
Lord Loam: Great Scot! Good heavens, I don't believe it! My daughter arrested as a suffragette! That's what comes of all this darned equality!
Lady Mary: Are you ambitious?
Bill Crichton: Ambitious? For what?
Lady Mary: To better yourself.
Bill Crichton: My lady! I am the son of a butler and a lady's maid. The happiest of all combinations. To me the most beautiful thing in the world is a haughty English aristocratic home with everyone kept in his place.
Lady Mary: That's not how my father would have it.
Bill Crichton: Indeed, he would not, my lady. He would have equality for all. But what good would that do? Any satisfaction I might derive out of being your equal would be ruined by the footman being equal to me.
