MATTHEW: That's Barry's pond.
ANNE: Oh, no. This is the Lake of Shining Waters. That's its 1)rightful name. Do things like this ever give you a 2)thrill, Mr. Cuthbert?
MATTHEW: Well, picking up them ugly 3)white grubs in the cucumber bed.
ANNE: Yes, I can see how that could be very thrilling.
MATTHEW: Woap. Green Gables, yonder.
ANNE: I've 4)pinched myself so many times today to make sure that this was real. But it is real and we're nearly home.
4)pinch oneself 自分をつねる
ANNE: I'm 5)overwhelmed.
MARILLA: Matthew Cuthbert, who is that?
MATTHEW: It's a girl.
MARILLA: I can see that. Where's the boy?
MATTHEW: There weren't any. Just her. I 6)figured we just couldn't leave her 7)no matter what the mistake was.
MARILLA: You figured? Oh, this is 8)a fine kettle of fish. This is what 9)comes of sending word, 10)instead of going ourselves, Matthew.
ANNE: You don't want me? You don't want me because I'm not a boy? Nobody ever did want me. I 11)might have known this was all 12)too beautiful to be true.
MARILLA: Come, come, now. Don't cry. It is not your 13)fault.
ANNE: This is just 14)the most tragical thing that has ever happened to me.
MARILLA: Well, what's your name?
ANNE: Would you please call me Cordelia?
MARILLA: Call you Cordelia?
ANNE: Don't you think it's a pretty name?
MARILLA: Is that your name?
ANNE: Well, no, it's not exactly my name, though I 15)would love to be called Cordelia.
MARILLA: I don't understand what you mean.
ANNE: Cordelia is a 16)perfectly elegant name.
MARILLA: What is your name child, and no more nonsense?
ANNE: Anne Shirley. 17)Plain, old, unromantic Anne Shirley.
MARILLA: Anne Shirley is a fine and 18)sensible name, and 19)hardly one to 20)be ashamed of.
ANNE: Oh, I'm not ashamed, but if you are going to call me Anne, would you please 21)be sure to spell it with an "e".
MARILLA: What difference does it make how it is spelled?
ANNE: 22)It makes a lot of difference. Print out "A-n-n" and it looks absolutely 23)dreadful, but Anne with an "e" is quite 24)distinguished. So if you'll only call me Anne with an "e", I'll try and 25)reconcile myself 26)to not being called Cordelia.
MARILLA: Very well then, Anne, with an "e", 27)how is it that you happened to be brought and not a boy?
ANNE: 28)If I were very beautiful and had nut-brown hair, would you keep me?
MARILLA: No. We 29)have absolutely no use for a girl. Well, don't stand there 30)gaping. Come along; bring your bag. 31)Now that you're here, I suppose we'll have to put you somewhere tonight. Take off your hat. You must be hungry.
ANNE: I can't eat. I can never eat when I'm in the depths of despair.
MARILLA: The depths of despair?
ANNE: Can you eat when you're that way?
MARILLA: I've never been that way.
ANNE: Can't you even imagine you're in the depths of despair?
MARILLA: No, I can not. To despair is to 32)turn your back on God. This is your room for the night. Wash up and then come down for supper.
ANNE: Yes, Miss Cuthbert.

MARILLA: You suppose, don't you know it?
MATTHEW: She's a nice little thing, Marilla. Seems a 34)pity to send her back; she's so 35)set on staying.

MATTHEW: We could hire a boy, and she can be company for you.
MARILLA: I'm not 38)suffering for company, particularly a girl who 39)prattles on 40)without stopping for breath. She's no good for us. She has to go straight back where she came from.
MATTHEW: Well, we might be of some good to her.
MARILLA: Good night, Anne with an "e".
ANNE: You don't have to say goodnight. It's the worst night I've ever known.

ANNE: 49)As well as a victim of tragic circumstances can be, Mrs. Spencer.
MARILLA: There seems to be some 50)queer mistake, Sarah. We told Roberta for you to get us a boy.
MRS. SPENCER: Oh, Marilla, 51)you don't say. Well, Roberta distinctly said that you wanted a girl.
MARILLA: I knew I should have gone myself.
MRS. SPENCER: I am dreadfully sorry, Marilla.
MARILLA: I suppose the asylum will take the child back.
MRS. SPENCER: Well, as a matter of fact, Mrs. Blewett was up here yesterday asking me if I could get her a little girl. She has such a large family, you know. Ten children and another one 52)on the way, she's simply beside herself for help.
ANNE: Excuse me, Mrs. Spencer, would there happen to be any twins among them?
MRS. SPENCER: Oh, she has 53)two sets of twins. How did you know, child?
ANNE: Twins seem to be my 54)lot in life.
MRS. BLEWETT: Mrs. Spencer!
MRS. SPENCER: And you'll be just the girl.
MRS. BLEWETT: Mrs. Spencer!

MRS. BLEWETT: Miss Cuthbert.
MARILLA: Mrs. Blewett.
MRS. BLEWETT: How old are you, girl.
MRS. BLEWETT: Ain't much to you, but you're 56)wiry, and I don't know but the wiry ones can work the hardest. I'll expect you to earn your keep, no mistaking that. And I want you to act smart and be 57)respectful. Alright, I'll take her. My twins have been awful 58)fractious these days and I'm terrible 59)worn out.
