    • QUOTES (7)

      • William Garrow: You urged me to defend the Monster, Lady Sarah! A man who slashed women.
        Lady Sarah Hill: On a principle! One man against the mob. You took her case to exercise your skill. Sometimes it is right to be too busy or too expensive!
        Silvester: (enters the room) You bested me there Garrow. (senses the tension between Lady Sarah and Garrow) I withdraw. Clearly I intrude on some intimacy.
        William Garrow: That is a foul insinuation. Do you hear me, sir?! That is the second insult you have offered me today. I demand an apology.
        Silvester: I am not in the habit of apologising for imagined slights.
        William Garrow: Then I demand satisfaction.
        Lady Sarah Hill: Will...
        Silvester: (leans towards Garrow) Do not be noisome, "Will". Withdraw the challenge.
        William Garrow: I shall not.

      • Lady Sarah Hill: (to Garrow) Do not think you defend my honour. There may be reasons for your actions but they are yours alone.

      • William Garrow: (after a successful practice shooting) Born with a pistol in my grasp!
        John Southouse: You have killed the mighty squash.

      • John Southouse: (to Garrow) You must draw a will. A man of law dying intestate is the most heinous crime of all.

      • Silvester: (aiming his pistol at Garrow) It is time for you to embrace humility.
        William Garrow: Shoot, damn you.
        Silvester: Keep still. Very still. (fires his gun)

      • Sir Arthur Hill: (eating breakfast with his wife) Mr. Garrow has been shot.
        Lady Sarah Hill: (drops her cutlery, shocked)
        Sir Arthur Hill: Some decorum, madam.

      • Lady Sarah Hill: (to Garrow) Please, do not get up, not while bearing such a mortal blow.
        William Garrow: Crassly acquired.
        Lady Sarah Hill: Yes. Are you in pain?
        William Garrow: A little. My behaviour at the court was... unacceptable.
        Lady Sarah Hill: (sits next to Garrow) I thought you dead.
        William Garrow: So did I.
        Lady Sarah Hill:(quietly) A thought that could not be borne. (takes his hand)
