Matthew: I hope I did my duty.
Mary: Are you a creature of duty?
Matthew: Not entirely.
Mary: When you laugh with me or... flirt with me...is that a duty? Are you conforming to the fitness of things? Doing what's expected?
Matthew: Don't play with me. I don't deserve it. Not from you.
Mary: You must be careful not to break Sybil's heart. I think she has a crush on you.
Matthew: Well, that's something no-one could accuse you of.
Mary: Oh, I don't know.
Matthew: I assume you speak in a spirit of mockery.
Mary: You should have more faith.
Matthew: Shall I remind you of some of the choicest remarks you made about me when I arrived here? Because they live in my memory. As fresh as the day they were spoken.
Mary: Oh, Matthew. What am I always telling you? You must pay no attention to the things I say.
