  • Quotes

    • Charles: (about Mary and Adam) I want them to make their own decision. I don't want to interfere.
      Caroline: You don't want them to go, do you?
      Charles: I just don't want to interfere. It's up to them. They'll do what they need to do.
      Caroline: That's why you've decided not to help Giles persuade them?
      Charles: It's just like I told you. I don't want to interfere.
      Caroline: I know what you've told me. Now, how about the truth?
      Charles: (pauses) If they go back east, we may never see them again. There's a good chance we may never see our first grandchild. Do you want them to go?
      Caroline: Of course not.
      Charles: Do you think that child's gonna be better off being raised in the city?
      Caroline: Nope.
      Charles: All right, then. We just won't say anything. It's their decision. We won't interfere. (Caroline turns to leave) I mean, if I was gonna say anything, I'd tell them to stay right here. He'd be a lot better off growing up here.
      Caroline: But it's their decision, so you won't interfere, right?
      Charles: Right.
