Benjamin Blake: [Seeing sailing ship approach] This time is no derelict; Eve...
Eve: You will go! If you stay out of pity, I will throw myself in sea.
Benjamin Blake: Eve!
Eve: I can only be happy if you are happy.
Sir Arthur Blake: Have you ever fought with your fists, Ben?
Benjamin Blake: Yes.
Sir Arthur Blake: I don't mean vulgar scuffling in the stables. I mean the rules of the prize ring.
Benjamin Blake: No, sir.
Sir Arthur Blake: Take off your coat, and your education will begin.
[as Ben is removing his coat, Sir Arthur suddenly punches him to the ground]
Sir Arthur Blake: Your first lesson - Never be taken unawares!
Eve: [raising fork up inside her fist] What's this?
Benjamin Blake: It's to eat with.
Benjamin Blake: [seeing Eve fail to pick up any food]
Benjamin Blake: No, no, no; like this.
Eve: [failing to pick up food again, at Ben laughing] Why?
Benjamin Blake: Go on, try again!
Eve: No; I am too stup'!
Benjamin Blake: No, perhaps I am the one that's stupid.
[looks at utensils]
Benjamin Blake: These things have no place here.
