Movie Quote Quiz

Heathcliff: My tears don't love you, Cathy. They blight and curse and damn you.
Cathy: Heathcliff, don't break my heart.
Heathcliff: Oh Cathy, I never broke your heart. You broke it.

Isabella: If Cathy died... I might begin to live.

Heathcliff: Tell the dirty stable boy to let go of you. He soiled your pretty dress. But who soiled your heart? Not Heathcliff. Who turns you into a vain, cheap, worldly fool? Linton does. You'll never love him, but you'll let yourself be loved because it pleases your stupid, greedy vanity.

Dr. Kenneth: Hindley, why don't you hit yourself over the head with a hammer when you wake up every morning?
Hindley: Why?
Dr. Kenneth: Well, if you do, you'll achieve virtually the same results as you do with a bottle of whiskey, with much less wear and tear on the kidneys.

Hindley: If she's run off with that gypsy scum, let her run. Let her run through storm and Hell. They're birds of a feather and the Devil can take them both. Now, get me a bottle.

Cathy: I told you, Ellen. When he went away that night in the rain, I told you I belonged to him, that he was my life, my being.

Heathcliff: I want to crawl to her feet, whimper to be forgiven... for loving me. For needing her more than my own life... for belonging to her more than my own soul.

Heathcliff: I cannot live without my life! I cannot die without my soul.

Heathcliff: If you ever looked at me once with what I know is in you, I'd be your slave. Cathy, if your heart were only stronger than your dull fear of God and the world, I'd live contented, silently in your shadow. But No. You must destroy us both with that weakness you call virtue.

Heathcliff: Why are your eyes always empty? Like Linton's eyes.
Isabella: They're not empty, if you'd only look deeper. Look at me. I'm pretty. I'm a woman and I love you. You're all of life to me. Let me be a single breath of it for you.

Dr. Kenneth: Ask your husband to call another doctor in future. Whoever dwells in this house is beyond my healing arts.

Cathy, as a child: Oh, it's a wonderful castle! Heathcliff, let's never leave it.
Heathcliff, as a child: Never in our lives! Let all the world confess, that there is not in all the world a more beautiful damsel than the Princess Catherine of Yorkshire.
Cathy, as a child: But I - I'm still your slave.
Heathcliff, as a child: No, Cathy. I now make you my queen. Whatever happens out there, here you will always be my queen.

Continuity mistake: Cathy and Heathcliff run away from two dogs as they spy on the party and Heathcliff helps her up the wall. In the next shot he is already on the wall and jumps down.
