...how humbly I ask you to forgive me. Pres, I'm kneeling to you.
Henry Fonda as Preston Dillard: Don't.
Bette Davis as Julie: To ask you to forgive me and love me as I love you.
PRESTON DILLARD: Julie, please.
JULIE: Why did you do it? Why Pres?
PRESTON DILLARD: Because I love her
JULIE: But you had my love!
PRESTON DILLARD: And lost it.
JULIE: Wasn't that memory more real than anything she had to give to you?
JULIE: Don't be cross with me, Pres. Just tell me. You must!
PRESTON DILLARD: Please don't, Julie!
JULIE: Sha'll I cry for you? Nobody ever made me cry but you. And that was only twice! Do you remember?
PRESTON DILLARD: Yes
JULIE: How much do you remember?
PRESTON DILLARD: Everything you ever said or did. But thats the past now. Done. Finished.
JULIE: I 'ought to have came to you. I wanted to so terribly. I't was because I wanted to so much that I couldn't. You do understand that don't you Pres?
PRESTON DILLARD: I didn't understand. I just knew what you did.
JULIE: But you had to come back home didn't you? You had to come back to the country and the things you know. Because you belong here! Nothing can change that. Listen. Can you hear them? The night noises? The Mocking bird in the magnolia. See the moss hanging from the moonlight. You can fairly taste the night can't you? You're part of it Pres and it's part of you. Like I am. You cant get away from us Pres, we're both in your blood. This is the country you were born to, the country you know and trust.
