Mr. Lundie: Two hundred years ago, the highlands of Scotland were plagued with witches, wicked sorcerers that were taking the Scottish people away from the teachings of God and putting the Devil into their souls. They were indeed horrible destructive women. I dinna suppose you have such women in your country?

Tommy Albright: Witches?

Jeff Douglas: Oh we have 'em. We pronounce it differently.

Tommy Albright: Look... I'm not saying I believe all this, but just for argument's sake... suppose... suppose a stranger like... well, like... like me... came to Brigadoon and wanted to stay. Could he?

Mr. Lundie: [gives him a long look, then smiles] Aye, he could. Mr. Forsythe provided for that.

Jeff Douglas: He didn't miss a trick, did he?

Mr. Lundie: [laughing] No, lad, he didna! No, a stranger could stay if he loved someone here... not Brigadoon itself, mind, but someone *in* Brigadoon... enough to be willing to give up everything to stay near that person... which is only right because after all, lad... if you love someone deeply enough, anything is possible.

Fiona Campbell: Aye. Anything is possible.

[He gestures to Tommy]

Mr. Lundie: Come, lad.

[Tommy slowly crosses the bridge to Mr. Lundie, then looks about him, confused]

Mr. Lundie: You shouldna be too surprised. I told ye... if you love someone deeply enough, anything is possible.

[Tommy stares down the road towards Brigadoon]

Mr. Lundie: Even... *miracles*?

Jeff Douglas: Can you think of one good reason why I, a strange man, should be interested in proposing to you, a mighty strange woman and at this hour of the day?

Meg Brockie: Because you're a lad and I'm a lass!
