    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Ned: After that, I kind of lost the thread of the conversation. Then:
        Cicely: Whatever forces may have shaped you, you still have the power to change who you are.
        (Ned realizes she's about to be attacked)
        Ned: NOOOOOOOO!

      • Roslyn: Men are confused. They're conflicted. They want a woman who's their intellectual equal, but they're afraid of women like that. They want a woman they can dominate, but then they hate her for being weak. It's an ambivalence that goes back to a man's relationship with his mother. Source of his life, center of his universe, object of both his fear and his love.

      • Ned: One person can have a profound effect on another. And two people… well, two people can work miracles. They can change a whole town. They can change the world.

      • Roslyn: If you were in a burning house and there was a cat and a Rembrandt, what would you save? The cat...you would save the cat, because the cat is alive. The art is dead. It's just paint on a canvas, ink on a page. To live for art is to deny life. It's just to destroy life.
