Page 7 - And saying to myself another time, to look on Peggy Cavanagh, who had the lightest hand at milking a cow that wouldn't be easy, or turning a cake, and there she is now walking round on the roads, or sitting in a dirty old house, with no teeth in her mouth, and no sense and no more hair than you'd see on a bit of a hill and they after burning the furze from it.
Page 6 - Was it a hard woman to please you were when you took himself for your man? NORA: What way would I live, and I an old woman, if I didn't marry a man with a bit of a farm, and cows on it, and sheep on the back hills?
Page 22 - I'm old-fashioned. Oldfashioned people used to think that when a man treated a girl as you have treated Fanny, it was his duty to marry her. Alan.

And yet I am asking you to give me up for Fanny.

Page 22 - BEATRICE. I'm not being personal, Alan. I'm old-fashioned enough to really believe there is that difference. You see, men have never had to exercise self-control like women have. And so I'm oldfashioned enough to be able to forgive you. ALAN. To forgive me, and marry me, in spite of what has happened, and in spite of your father and mine ? BEATRICE. I care nothing for my father or yours. I care a good deal for what has happened, but it shows, I think, that you need me even more than I need you. For...
Page 19 - That didn't occur to you? ALAN. It didn't. FANNY. You never thought that anybody else could be as selfish as yourself. ALAN. I may be very conceited, but I don't see how you can hurt yourself by wedding me. You'd come in for plenty of brass, anyhow. FANNY. I don't know as money's much to go by when it comes to a job of this sort. It's more important to get the right chap.
