  • Quotes

    • Catherine: I wonder what they must think?
      Vincent: That it was a miracle...

    • Vincent: We can't do this. If we throw the treasure into the Abyss, we admit defeat. It has beaten us...There may be no place for it in our world, but there are others in the world Above who go hungry and homeless. Although, we live apart from them, we cannot deny that we are all a part of each other and this city. We cannot turn our backs while there is a chance to help. We cannot turn our backs.

    • Catherine: It is a disease from my world. It is called 'Greed.'

    • Vincent: (to Cullen) Listen to Father.
      Cullen: What are you going to do if I don't? Kill me?!

    • Mouse: (gives gift to Catherine) You give. I give... Have to go now... Help Father... He's lost without Mouse.

    • Vincent: Catherine, your gifts brought much joy today.
      Catherine: I wish I could do more. There's so many things I wish I could give you.
      Vincent: But you give of yourself-your generosity, friendship- to all of us. There is no more than that.
      Catherine: You know what I mean.
      Vincent: Well, with what our friends bring to us and what the world Above casts aside, we have everything we need.

    • Mouse: Time? Easy! Early- come before Mouse. Late- come after.

    • Catherine: (rummaging in a box) Just a few odds and ends from around the house.
      Vincent: (chuckles, pulling item from box) You should...learn to remove the price tag from your 'odds and ends.'
      Catherine: (holding up sweater to Father) My father bought this when he took up sking, and put it in the drawer after one trip down the slopes. What do you think?
      Cullen: It's him... Father, that is definitely you.
      Father: The sweater? Yes, well, it's just what I need for when I...go skiing.

    • Cullen: (to Jamie) And the white king is gonna be-guess who? Father! You know, leaning on his stick, books under his arm... He'll fuss and fume, but secretly, he's gonna love it.
