Estella - Age 10: It's not poisoned.
Uncle Joe: Nothing harder than being given your chance. At least, that's what I hear.
Ms. Nora Digger Dinsmoor: She'll only break your heart, it's a fact. And even though I warn you, even though I guarantee you that the girl will only hurt you terribly, you'll still pursue her. Ain't love grand?
Finn: Everything I have ever done, I've done for you.
Finn: I did it! I did it! I am a wild success! I sold 'em all, all my paintings. You don't have to be embarrassed by me anymore. I'm rich! Isn't that what you wanted? Aren't we happy now? Don't you understand that everything I do, I do it for you? Anything that might be special in me, is you.
Finn: I'm not going to tell the story the way it happened. I'm going to tell it the way I remember it.
Finn: If this isn't love, I don't think I can handle the real thing.
Finn: The night all of my dreams came true, and like all happy endings, It was a tragedy, Of my device, for I succeeded. I had cut myself loose from Joe, from the past, from the gulf, from poverty I had invented myself. I'd done it cruelly, but I had done it. I was free.
Prisoner: You bite your nails? It's a bad habit. People always tell you that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Bullshit. It's your hands, that's the sign of a gentleman.
Estella: We are who we are, people don't change.
Estella: Finn? Is that you?
Finn: Is that your little girl?
Estella: Yes. I had to bring her. I wanted to show her this place.
Finn: Have you been back often?
Finn: Me either.
Estella: So... I hear all about you. You're doing great.
Finn: I'm doing okay.
Estella: Things have been... different for me. For a long time, I kept.
Estella: I think about you. A lot lately.
Finn: I'm glad.
Estella: Can you ever forgive me?
Finn: Don't you know me at all?
