  • Quotes (3)

    • Simeon Barnes: You've got a preacher coming up from London. One of them Jesuits. Elizabeth Barnes: So? Simeon Barnes: From London! Well, at least he'll know what hell is like.

    • Reverend Bohun: I believe it is common knowledge that my brother and I are not on friendly terms. Whatever he may have done, I cannot be held responsible. Mrs Deveraux: Do you mean you're not his keeper? A strange sentiment for one of your calling, Mr Bohun.

    • Father Brown: Do you know, Vicar, I have a passion for old churches. We don't have any, at least not in this country. Thanks to Henry VIII we had to start all over again from scratch. I often think while we have the best Church, you have the best churches. It's very annoying.
