The Secret Garden - Mrs. Crawford
Terms in this set (19)
(Walk out) Ah, Mrs. Medlock. You are Mrs. Medlock?
Mrs. Medlock: Mind your manners. Chin up. The rest of you can go back to your duties. There's more than enough work to keep you busy, I'm sure. (John gestures)
Quite so. You have no idea how happy I am to be back in England.
Mrs. Medlock: I am. Yo are Mrs. Crawford?
My husband is in the Lancers. He's been reassigned.
Mrs. Medlock: There's no place like England.
What choice did I have? The outbreak of cholera was devastating. People have no idea. She couldn't return by herself. I should like to speak with Mr. Craven.
Mrs. Medlock: It was most kind of you to escort Miss Lennox from India.
How inconvenient. In any case, my duty is done. She's your worry now. This is Mary Lennox.
Mrs. Medlock: I'm afraid that's not possible. He's in poor health. Never receives.
This is my servant.
Mrs. Medlock: What? Her?
I never travel anywhere without Kanchi. I find her indispensable. I thought Mary was with you, Kanchi.
Don't be absurd. She was with us when we came into the house. I don't wish to speak out of turn, Mrs. Medlock, but the girl has proven a trial. She's stubborn.
Kanchi: She must have slipped away.
Mrs. Medlock: Gracious! You haven't lost the child?
She's that, too. I've never seen the creature smile. The girl is spoiled beyond all reason.
Mrs. Medlock: All your letter said was moody.
I'm sure. Better see if you can find her, Kanchi. She couldn't have gotten far.
Mrs. Medlock: I hope she won't prove troublesome. I have no time for tantrums and such. Every ounce of energy I have goes to managing this large house. It's no easy task.
Where were you, Mary?
Kanchi: Yes. Mem Sahib. Here she is now.
See what I mean?
Mary: I wanted to look about. It's a gloomy sort of house, isn't it? I doubt if I shall be happy here. Best not to get my hopes up.
Mrs. Medlock: She talks like a little old lady. Give yourself time, child. You'll soon make some friends.
Mary: I don't think so. People never like me, and I never like people. I never have any friends.
It's as I told you, Mrs. Medlock. Stubborn.
Mrs. Medlock: Yes, I do. I do, indeed. My word! She is a plain piece of goods. And we heard her mother was a great beauty. She didn't hand much of it down. Seems thin to me. Too pale.
Mrs. Medlock: Dear me. She doesn't hold her tongue, does she?
I have never seen such a contrary child.
Kanchi: She's obstinate.
I cannot imagine why her parents let her be so very rude and difficult.
Kanchi: She is as spoiled as they come.
Mrs. Medlock: The master will not put up with her willfulness.
Crossing from India, I liked to have lost my mind trying to figure out where she was and what she was doing.
Mary: I'm only a small and innocent child. I just prefer to get my way.
Kanchi: I don't know how you'll be able to tame the likes of her.
You'll have to be more than firm with this child.
Mary: I won't be bossed!
Well, I never...
Mary: I will get my way!
