Anne Shirley, now a schoolteacher, has begun writing stories and collecting rejection slips. She makes the acquaintance of a handsome, rich,...更多>
Anne Shirley: I don't want diamond sunbursts, or marble halls. I just want you. Anne Shirley: You just think that you love me. Gilbert Blythe: Anne, I've loved you as long as I can remember. I need you. Diana Barry: Myra Gillis had 37 doilies when she got married, and I'm determined to have AT LEAST as many as she had. Anne Shirley: I suppose it would be impossible to keep house with only 36 doilies. But I assure you, Mr. Wright, Diana will be the sweetest little homemaker in the world... so long as you can afford to let her keep up with the Gillises. Marilla Cuthbert: You set your heart too much on frivolous things and then crash down into despair when you don't get them. Anne Shirley: I know. I can't help flying up on the wings of anticipation. It's as glorious as soaring through a sunset... almost pays for the thud. Marilla Cuthbert: Well, maybe it does. But I'd rather walk calmly along and do without flying AND thud. Anne Shirley: I feel as though someone's handed me the moon... and I don't exactly know what to do with it. [Anne is deeply depressed, and Marilla tries to cheer her up by offering her some homemade plum puffs] Anne Shirley: Plum puffs won't minister to a mind diseased in a world that's crumbled into pieces. Marilla Cuthbert: Well I'm glad to see that your dented spirits haven't injured your tongue. Gilbert Blythe: What are you thinking? Anne Shirley: I'm afraid to speak or move for fear that all this wonderful beauty will just vanish... like a broken silence. Anne Shirley: The only thing you've ever had to wear twice is a sour expression. [Rachel and Marilla discuss Anne] Rachel Lynde: It's to your credit you changed her as much as you did. Marilla Cuthbert: Ooo, she hasn't changed that much... not really. It's US that's changed, Rachel. Mrs. Harris: Oh. Remember your manners. And don't forget to cross your ankles decently when you sit down. And don't sit in a draft, either. And don't slide down the banisters. Pauline Harris: Mama! Mrs. Harris: Well, you did at Nancy Pringle's wedding. Pauline Harris: Mama, that was 25 years ago! What do you think I am ? Anne Shirley: Babies are never common. Each one is a miracle. Mrs. Harris: Well I had two of them. I didn't see much that was miraculous about either of THEM. Morgan Harris: I've always held that early marriage is a sure indication of second-rate goods that had to be sold in a hurry.
: Mama hates Isaac as much as she did 15 years ago when she set the bull terrier on him for coming around to see me. [Anne has just invited Miss Brooke to Green Gables for the summer] Katherine Brooke: Now you can go through the motions of telling me how delighted you are and how I'll have a wonderful time. Anne Shirley: I AM delighted... but as to a wonderful time... that will depend entirely on YOU, Katherine. Katherine Brooke: This is the first place I've ever been to that feels like a real home. Marilla Cuthbert: Every baby is the sweetest and the best. Anne Shirley: There's a book of revelations in everyone's life. Anne Shirley: It's not what the world holds for you. It's what you bring to it. Anne Shirley: Tell me, Mr. Allen, do you dance as well as you boast? Lewis Allen: Better. Anne Shirley: This has taught me a lesson not to stake my word of honor on cows. Gilbert Blythe: Anne, There's not going to be any wedding anymore... I called it off. It wouldn't be fair to Christine. There would never be anyone for me but you. Gilbert Blythe: All pioneers are considered to be afflicted with moonstruck madness. Anne Shirley: Why do people have to grow up and marry, change? Gilbert Blythe: Oh, you'd change. If someone ever admitted that they were head over heels for you, you'd be swept off your feet in a moment. Anne Shirley: I would not, and I defy anyone who would try and make me change. Gilbert Blythe: You do? Gilbert Blythe: "Wilt thou give up thy garter, oh fairest of the fair"? Anne, nobody speaks that way. And look at that sap Percival who sits around mooning the entire time. He never lets a girl get a word in edgewise. In real life she'd have pitched him. Anne Shirley: I don't want any of it to change. I wish I could just hold on to those days forever. I have a feeling things will never be the same again, will they? Gilbert Blythe: I won't change, that's the least I can promise you. Gilbert Blythe: Maybe you don't think I'm good enough for you now, but I will be someday. Anne Shirley: No, Gil you're a great deal too good for me. But you want someone who'll adore you. Someone who'll be happy just to hang on your arm and build a home for you. I wouldn't. Gilbert Blythe: Anne, that's not what I'm looking for at all. Anne Shirley: We'll end up like two old crows fighting all the time. I know I'd be unhappy and I'd wish we'd never done it. Anne Shirley:
I promise I'll always be here if you need me. Good friend are always together in spirit. Let's not change Gil, let's just go on being good friends.
