of what we want from each other. No, please. I'm not finished. There are woman you can send for them and send away again. I am not one of them.
KING DAVID: What do you want?
BATHSHEBA: To please you.
KING DAVID: I have not been clear enough that you please me? I'll never send you away, if what you want. Never, as long as you live.
Susan Hayward as BATHSHEBA: No, David, that is not all I want.
Think not to this one night but all the days and all the nights to come. Think I can give you what you need for your long as you live as your wife.
KING DAVID: But you're not free.
BATHSHEBA: If I was free...
Gregory Peck as KING DAVID: It is supposed that a king does not need anything.
BATHSHEBA: Only a fool would suppose that.
KING DAVID: Well then... friendship. I had a friend once, but I destroyed him. The others who are called friends, I have never seen them eyes, only tops of their heads they bent to me. Their hands are extended to me, but palms upwards for favors. Even my own sons. I will see your eyes, Bathsheba?
BATHSHEBA: You will see them. And my hand will be in yours. That much is easy.
KING DAVID: I'm only a man, Bathsheba. I need someone to understand that. I need that kind of understanding that only one human being can give one to another. I need someone to share my heart.
BATHSHEBA: The man I watched from my window was not the king but a man whose heart well worth to sharing.
