Quotes

Nanny McPhee: There is something you should understand about the way I work. When you need me but do not want me, then I must stay. When you want me but no longer need me, then I have to go. It's rather sad, really, but there it is.

[Nanny McPhee turns around to walk out of the room, but stops once she hears Simon]

Simon Brown: We will never want you!

Nanny McPhee: Then I will never go.

Mr. Brown: I can't support my own family. I never have been able to. There are so many of you. But You're all so delicious. When Aggy came along and your mother was so ill, I said to her, "I think we will have to stop now, dear," and she said... She said, "I know."
