    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Fletcher (to Rhodes about Bayport): I never had a nerve in my body until I came to live here.

      • Rhodes: Do you talk to yourself often?
        Damaris: All the time. My mother's never been able to break me of the habit.

      • Dr. Clark: Where's Damaris?
        Judith: She's home where she oughta be.

      • Rhodes: You're right about this place. It's almost as if...
        Damaris: As if what?
        Rhodes: As if I belong here too.

      • Rhodes (to Winslow): You're supposed to be her lawyer. You're sounding like the district attorney.

      • Rhodes: Do you think I'm lying?
        Winslow: Well, in this case, somebody has to be.

      • Rhodes: Then you believe your daughter is a witch?
        Judith: There have been witches in the Eaton family since the Pilgrims first set foot on the Rock.

      • Judith (to Rhodes): You believe what you want to believe but there's a witch in my daughter and I'm going to drive her out.

      • Winslow: Judge Fuller, naturally, we would like to refute Miss Eaton's confession.
        Judge: Naturally.

      • Rhodes: You wanted me to follow you?
        Damaris: I was afraid you'd forgotten the way.
        Rhodes: How could I forget? I've never been here before.
        Damaris: It's your land. It's been your land for hundreds of years.
        Rhodes: Then it'd be a perfect time for you to give me the grand tour-if you're not going home.
        Damaris: I am home. This is the only place I really belong.
        Rhodes: I thought your mother asked you to go home.
        Damaris: Don't treat me like a child! I'm not a child.
        Rhodes: No, Damaris, you're not.
        Damaris: (reaching her hand up to the tree next to her) I'm old. As old as these trees. Are you afraid of me?
        Rhodes: I don't understand you.
        Damaris: No, you never have! (looking flirtatiously at Rhodes)

      • Rhodes: Can you describe her?
        Fletcher: Old fashioned dress, long. Big white collar. Some sort of thing on her head.
        Rhodes: Was she young?
        Fletcher: Never seen her face. Blonde. Wears her hair just like Damaris.
        Rhodes: You've seen her several times?
        Fletcher: Ever since the first night I came here. And don't tell me it's some kind of dream! It's not just at night I've seen her. She "appears", whatever you want to call it, day or night. And she's just as I am!

      • Damaris (in conversation with Dr. Rhodes at his uncle's house): Your mother's family came from here a long, long time ago. And now you're back. I guess it's the way it was meant to be-you and Judge Fletcher.

        Dr. Rhodes: Judge Fletcher?

        Damaris: It's what I call your uncle. He looks like a judge doesn't he?

        Dr. Rhodes: Yes I guess he does.

      • Accused woman being burned at the stake for witchcraft in 1692: Judge Fletcher! You and your nephew will not escape! My family will justify me, and your family will die! I will it! All of them! I will it!
