Quote Of The Week 2

"I'm not saying she was very silly. But one of us was silly, and it wasn't me."
~Squire Hamley, Wives and Daughters (1999)

I think this is my favorite of Michael Gambon's many roles! That quote just says it all, so delightful! :)

Melody said...

Haha! One of my favorites. :) My dad and I love to quote this one.

Julia Rogers said...

This is a FAVORITE quote in our house!! My dad is always saying that to me and my sister! :-)
I really LOVE your blog!! SOOO good!!
A "truly kindred spirit" shall we say?

Miss Laurie and Melody,
Isn't Michael Gambon perfect as the Squire? I agree; this is my favorite of his little sayings. :)

Why thank you! You certainly seem to be of the "race that knows Joseph". :)

Julia Rogers said...

Yes, I believe I am! I DO SOOO LOVE this type of blog!
I only found my first "Austen" blog months ago! I had no idea they existed before then. :-)
But now i avidly follow them!
God Bless!

Heehee. We just re-watched this movie a few nights ago. Love this line! :D

Alexandra said...

This is probably my favorite line in the whole film. :-) Along with the bit with Mrs. Gibson...

Mrs. Gibson: An engagement is an engagement...
Squire Hamley: Did I say it was an elephant, ma'am?

Love Michael Gambon! :-)

I was talking with a friend of mine about casting period dramas, and her dad interjected, "Anything with Michael Gambon and Judi Dench in it is sure to be a winner." I have to agree-- he's hilarious as Squire Hamley (not to mention Mr. Holbrook, Mr. Woodhouse, Sir Charles Fox...)
I think I might use the elephant quote sometime. I love that one, too.
