  • Quotes

    • Charles: (about Mary and Adam moving to New York) I imagine it's a pretty tough decision for Adam to make.
      Giles: It is. It really is. That's why I wanted to talk to you. I thought you'd be able to put in a good word for me.
      Charles: Well, I don't know if I should do that, Giles. I wouldn't want to interfere. It's not my place.
      Giles: Well, Mary's your daughter, and that's your grandchild she's carrying. You know, Charles, the city is the best place for a new life to be born. The best facilities. The best modern medicine.
      Charles: Well, I never knew we had any reason to doubt Doctor Baker.
      Giles: Well, no. No. But I'm also thinking of the future. Just imagine the opportunities I'll be able to provide the child. And my place is big enough for an army!
      Charles: Well, I'm sure it is, Giles. I just, I figured people shouldn't measure their happiness by the size of the room they're living in.
      Giles: Oh, well, I know, but you know, the people that you're with count for something, too. Our grandchild isn't going to be blind like the other children in that school. Maybe you're forgetting about that.
      Charles: No, I'm not forgetting.
      Giles: Then you'll put in a good word for me?
      Charles: I'm afraid I can't. When my children live under my roof, they do as I see fit. When they're on their own, they make their own decisions.
