Shining Through
Movie Quote Quiz

Linda Voss: To my father I spoke German. But he warned me to keep this language a secret, because outside of our neighborhood in Queens New York, if people heard me speak German they would either think that I was a Nazi sympathizer, or they would know I was a Jew.

Ed Leland: Forget about dying. You're not allowed to die.
Linda Voss: I've never seen you look scared before.
Ed Leland: I don't want to loose you. I want to be with you, always.
Linda Voss: Oh God, you wouldn't say that unless you were sure I was gonna die.

Linda Voss: It surprised no-one that Ed was too stubborn to die.

Continuity mistake: When Linda Voss and the children return home from the city (after the bombing) and are greeted outside by Franze-Otto Dietrich, Linda has her watch on her right wrist (as she is a lefty). As Dietrich and the children are heading into the house, you see a close up of Linda checking the time on her watch and it is on someone's left wrist. When she subsequently goes into the basement to look around, the watch is back on her right wrist again.
