Michaela: "Those days I was too busy thinking about work
to pay any attention to parties like my sisters. Besides, when
I did, boys never asked me to dance. They always thought I was
Michaela: "I wasn't going to give up being a doctor so
I gave up the parties instead."
Charlotte: "How come you never got married?"

Hank) "I've been thinking about what you said. You're right.
Something inside me is frozen. It's not that I don't feel things.
I... I do. I feel love. I feel pain. I feel passion. I feel
all these things inside of me, swirling around, sometimes so...
so powerfully that... that it frightens me... Especially when
it comes to men. I don't know what I'm afraid will happen if
I let my feelings out. I suppose that I think that I'll seem
silly or weak or maybe he won't hear me and he won't respond,
and I'll just be left there standing."
Sully: "My wife had a garden in that exact spot."
Mrs. Quinn: "You lived here?"

and Hank have known each other a lot of years. In his way of
thinking he was doing good by me. I remember the first time
he smiled and told me I was beautiful. It was the first time
I ever felt I was. He told me of his dreams coming out here

now I found what makes me happy. So in a way I owe him."
"I know I ain't gonna be the best father. I can tell you
that straight out. I like my whiskey and my women, and sometimes
I ain't too polite. The fact is, I got a downright nasty temper."
his Nana) "She's a special lady. She's the only one in
my family I ever gave a damn about. She's the only one that
ever gave a damn about me. When I was a little boy, she told
me I was smart; be anything I wanted. You believe that?"
"See this? (snapping a strope) My ma had one hanging on
a ten penny nail right by the front door -- last thing I saw
when I left the house in the morning and the first thing I saw
when I come home at night. Just hanging there like a loaded
gun waiting for my ma to use whenever she got mad. Only I never
knew when that was gonna be."
Robert E: "We gotta hide the children. They'll be coming
for 'em next."
Grace: "Robert E, you listen to me. You are not a slave
anymore. Those days are gone forever."
Robert E: "Dear God, please don't take my children."
