Quotes

Pip: Out of my thoughts. You're part of my existence. Part of my self. To the last hour of my life you cannot choose but to remain part of my character. Part of the little good in me. Part of the evil. You're in every line I've ever read. Every prospect I've seen since I've been here. In the river. The sails of the ships. The marshes. The clouds. The wind. The woods. The sea. The streets. In light and darkness, you're there. The embodiment of all that's beautiful and graceful..."

I had the VCR tapes, but I haven't had a VCR in years. I have read many reviews and everyone agrees this is one of if not the best versions.of this Classic. Come on people, you can make money with getting this updated, which we all know is the driving force why companies do what they do.
