The Legend of Lizzie Borden (1975 TV Movie)
Adelaide Churchill: Lizzie what's wrong?
Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Borden: Oh Mrs Churchill, do come in. Someone has killed Father.
Mrs. Abby Borden: I'll not be cast out into the street to starve!
Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Borden: She could live off her fat for years.
Mr. Andrew Borden: You're a strange girl, Lizzie, one minute as hard and as cold as a grave so, next as loving as any father could wish. Wonder what goes on in that mind of yours, I guess I'll never know.
Hosea Knowlton: That woman actually believes she can get off scot-free by hiding behind her skirts.
Sylvia Knowlton: What else has she?
[he looks at her]
Sylvia Knowlton: I'm sorry, Hosea. It just seems that you men have only yourselves to blame if women hide behind their femininity as a last defense. After all, you cast us in this role.
Hosea Knowlton: You look upon your womanhood as a role my dear?
Sylvia Knowlton: It's not always a convenient part to play.
Hosea Knowlton: I've never heard you talk like this. Next you'll be asking for the vote. I gather you sympathize with this murderess.
Sylvia Knowlton: She has not as yet been found guilty, Hosea.
Hosea Knowlton: But you do sympathize with her?
Sylvia Knowlton: Certainly not with her deeds, but perhaps with her motives.
Hosea Knowlton: [laughs] Her motives? Now what would you know about her motives?
Sylvia Knowlton: I should think a great deal, Hosea. You have no idea how unbearably heavy these skirts can be at times.
