To me the most beautiful thing is the haughty, aristocratic English home with everyone kept in his place. LADY MARY: That's not how my father would have it. BILL CRICHTON: Indeed, he would not. He would have equality for all, but what good would that do. Any satisfaction I might derive from being your equalAny satisfaction I might derive from being your equal would be ruined by the footman being equal to me. LADY MARY: Yes, I see.

LADY MARY: And what about us, Crichton? Are my sisters and I included in your curious rules? BILL CRICHTON: Not my rules, My Lady. Fate makes its own rules.Fate makes its own rules.

LADY MARY: Bill.
BILL CRICHTON: I thought you had retired, My Lady. LADY MARY: I told Lord Brocklehurst he must wait for his answer. BILL CRICHTON: I'm sure you know best. LADY MARY: Oh, Guv, I thought you were a fighter. On the island... BILL CRICHTON: On the island, I had tangible things to fight. Here, there's only civilisation. No man can fight civilisation and win.No man can fight civilisation and win. LADY MARY: I'll fight with you. BILL CRICHTON: We'd end up by fighting each other. LADY MARY: Let's go back.

LADY MARY: Bill! I won't let you go. I won't. BILL CRICHTON: Mary, you know I am right. LADY MARY: No, I don't. I love you. BILL CRICHTON: You loved somebody you called the Governor. He does not exist anymore. Now you're Lady Mary, and it's time you say good night to Crichton, your butler. LADY MARY: No. BILL CRICHTON: Come along.
