William: Anne Cooper must leave my house immediately! You are no longer free to act.
Dorothea: You are wrong William. I am free now, from always having to act.
Dorothea: I am nobody Mr. Hayes, but I do not intend to be nobody for long. It is too exhausting.
Lawrence: With all due respect, you appear to be somebody to me.
Dorothea: You're not a radical I hope Mr. Hayes?
Lawrence: I take the liberty to follow my own thoughts.
Dorothea: I'm a believer in independence myself.
William Poyser: Your wit is uncommonly sharp, Miss Cooper.
Ann Cooper: I have known what it is to want, Mr Poyser.
William Poyser: You were a governess, I believe, before.
Ann Cooper: Miss Brook freed me from that pension grind.
William Poyser: Certainly we've all come here to better ourselves.
Ann Cooper: If not to make ourselves better.
