An Inspector Calls - Gerald
Terms in this set (22)
'Gerald Croft is an attractive chap about thirty, rather too manly to be a dandy but very much the easy well-bred young man-about-town.'
'...I insist upon being one of the family now. I've been trying long enough, haven't I?'
'And I drink to you - and hope I can make you as happy as you deserve to be.'
'You seem to be a nice well-behaved family-'
'You couldn't have done anything else.'
'...we're respectable citizens and not criminals.'
'I'm sorry, Sheila. But it was all over and done with, last summer. I hadn't set eyes on the girl for at least six months. I don't come into this suicide business.'
'Inspector, I think Miss Birling ought to be excused any more of this questioning.'
'You've been through it - and now you want to see somebody else put through it.'
'I met her first, sometime in March last year, in the stalls bar at the Palace.'
'It's a favourite haunt of women of the town.'
'She was very pretty - soft brown hair and big dark eyes-'
'The girl saw me looking at her and then gave me a glance that was nothing less than a cry for help.'
'I insisted on Daisy moving into those rooms and I made her take some money to keep her going there.'
'I became at once the most important person in her life...'
'I didn't feel about her as she felt about me.'
'That man wasn't a police officer.'
'Did we? Who says so? Because I say - there's no more real evidence we [drove that girl to commit suicide] than there was that that chap was a police inspector.'
'But how do you know it's the same girl?'
'We've no proof it was the same photograph...'
'We can settle that at once...By ringing up the Infirmary. Either there's a dead girl there or there isn't.'
'Well, you see, while I was out of the house I'd time to cool off and think things out a little.'
