Rhett Butler: Mules? Why mules?
Scarlett: Yes, she said we could give ourselves airs, and get ourselves all slicked up like racehorses but we were just mules in horse harness and we didn't fool anybody.
Rhett Butler: I never heard anything more true. Mammy's a smart old soul and one of the few people I know whose respect I'd like to have.
Scarlett: I won't give her a thing. She doesn't deserve it.
Rhett Butler: Then I'll take her a petticoat. My Mammy always said when she went to heaven she wanted a red taffeta petticoat, so stiff that it would stand by itself and so rustly, the Lord would think it was made of angels' wings.
Scarlett: Well, she won't take it from you. She'd rather die than wear it.
Rhett Butler: That may be, but I'm making the gesture just the same. Wake up! Wake up! You were having another nightmare.
Scarlett: Oh, Rhett. I was so cold and hungry and so tired I couldn't find it. I ran through the mist and I couldn't find it.
Rhett Butler: Find what, honey?
Scarlett: I don't know. I always dream the same dream and I never know. It seems to be hidden in the mist.
Rhett Butler: Darling.
Scarlett: Rhett, do you think I'll ever dream that I've found it and that I'm safe?
Rhett Butler: Dreams don't work that way, but when you get used to being safe and warm you'll stop dreaming that dream. And, Scarlett, I'm going to see that you are safe.
Scarlett: Would you do something for me if I asked you?
Rhett Butler: You know I would.
Scarlett: Will you take me away from here?
Rhett Butler: Don't you like New Orleans?
Scarlett: I love New Orleans, but I want to go home and visit Tara. Will you take me to Tara?
Rhett Butler: Yes, Scarlett, of course I will. We'll go tomorrow.
