Heavenly Creatures (1994)
Kate Winslet: Juliet Hulme
Juliet Hulme : All the best people have bad chests and bone diseases. It's all frightfully romantic.
Juliet Hulme : Only the best people fight against all obstacles in pursuit of happiness.
Juliet Hulme : Absolutely not! Orson Welles! Urgh! The most hideous man alive!
[Pauline is spending the Easter holiday with the Hulmes. Hilda Hulme, brushing Pauline's hair into an attractive shag, listens while Juliet describes more of the story that they've been devising]
Juliet Hulme : Mummy, Paul and I have decided that Charles and Deborah are going to have a baby, an heir to the throne of Borovnia.
Hilda Hulme : What a splendid idea.
[She grins, while Pauline is ecstatic with the attention being lavished upon her]
Juliet Hulme : We're calling him Diello.
Hilda Hulme : Well, that's a good, dramatic name.
Juliet Hulme : Paul thought it up.
Hilda Hulme : Aren't you clever?
[Pauline beams while Mrs. Hulme fluffs up her hair]
Hilda Hulme : There: all done.
[Pauline jumps up and takes Juliet's hand]
Hilda Hulme : Oh, look at you two. A couple of Borovnian princesses, if ever I saw them! My daughter... and my foster-daughter.
Pauline Parker : Oh, I wish James Mason would do a religious picture! He'd be perfect as Jesus!
Juliet Hulme : Daddy says the Bible's a load of bunkum!
Pauline Parker : But we're all going to heaven?
Juliet Hulme : I'M not! I'M going to The Fourth World... it's sort of like heaven. Only better, because there aren't any Christians!
Juliet Hulme : [speaking too brightly of the murder of Honorah Parker Rieper] I think she knows what's going to happen. She doesn't appear to bear us any grudge.
[shortly before the murder]
Juliet Hulme : [admiring the view that includes the path down the hill, where the murder occurred] Isn't it beautiful?
Pauline Parker : Let's go for a walk down here. Come on, Mummy!
Honorah Parker Rieper : Oh! No, I'd like a cup of tea, first. Come on!
[the girls reluctantly follow her into the tea-house]
[Director Peter Jackson opens with the scene that should, logically, end the film: that is, the moments immediately following the murder. The girls Juliet and Pauline run screaming up the hill-path to the tea-house, sobbing and covered in blood. The scene is intercut with b&w visions of the two running across a ship deck to meet Dr. and Mrs. Hulme, whom they both refer to as their mother, as the first three exclamations of "Mummy!" demonstrate]
Juliet Hulme : Mummy!
Pauline Parker : Mummy!
Juliet Hulme : Mummmmy!
[the scene changes from the ship to the hilltop tea-house. The girls are screaming hysterically as the tea-house woman runs out to see what the noise is all about]
Pauline Parker : It's Mummy! She's terribly hurt!
Juliet Hulme : Please! Help us!
Juliet Hulme : Stick it up your bottom!
Juliet Hulme : [Juliet has just arrived at her new school. For French class she has taken the name Antoinette] Excuse me, Miss Waller, you've made a mistake. "Je doutais qu'il vienne" is in fact the spoken subjunctive.
Miss Waller : It is customary to stand when addressing a teacher,
Miss Waller : Antoinette.
Juliet Hulme : [stands] You should have written "vînt".
Miss Waller : I must have copied it incorrectly from my notes.
Juliet Hulme : [stands] You don't need to apologise, Miss Waller. I found it frightfully difficult myself until I got the hang of it.
[the last lines show scenes of the murder intercut with b&w shots of Juliet being taken away by her parents on the ship. Pauline and Juliet are sobbing and screaming for each other; and the girls scream as they beat Honorah Parker to death]
Juliet Hulme : Gina!
[sobs as she reaches a hand over the ship railing]
Pauline Parker : Juliet, don't leave! I'm coming! Don't go! You can't! Oh, no!
[as the girls cry and reach helplessly toward each other, Juliet's parents come and stand on either side of her, trying to comfort her]
Juliet Hulme : I'm sorry...
[Pauline screams, and the b&w scene fades into the murder scene]
Pauline Parker : No!
[That last bloody shot fades into the credits]
[Pauline and Juliet are planning to run away to Hollywood and meet their favorite actors, such as James Mason and Mario Lanza]
Juliet Hulme : As soon as those bods in Hollywood cop a look at us, they'll be falling over themselves!
Pauline Parker : Oh, it'll be amazing to meet James in person. I just know we'll hit it off brilliantly. And Guy Rolfe. And Mel Ferrer.
Juliet Hulme : And Mario!
Pauline Parker : Oh, I can't wait to do the love scenes.
Juliet Hulme : Ooh.
Pauline Parker : But what if they're married?
Juliet Hulme : Oh, don't worry about that. We'll simply 'moider' any odd wives that get in our way!
