ANNE: Miss Cuthbert, did you really say it or did I only just imagine it?
MARILLA: I haven't said anything yet, young lady, except I want to speak to Matthew. Sending you back to the orphanage is 1)one thing. 2)Handing you over to the likes of Matilda Blewett is another.
ANNE: 3)I'd rather go back to the asylum than live with her. Two sets of twins! Oof. 4)Besides, she looks exactly like a 5)gimlet.
MARILLA: Anne Shirley, 6)you should be ashamed of yourself, speaking of a stranger 7)that way. 8)Hold your tongue and don't criticize your elders.
ANNE: I'll try and do anything and be anything you want, if you'll only keep me, Miss Cuthbert

MARILLA: Well, aren't you going to say anything, Matthew? I wouldn't give a dog I liked to that Blewett woman. 9)It makes no sense to keep her. But if we did keep her, I'd expect you not to 10)interfere with 11)my methods. An old maid like me may not know much about raising a child, but I know a 12)darn sight more than a old bachelor like you. Oh, she could 13)talk a hind leg of a mule, 14)that's certain. Oh, wouldn't that be a change around here?

MARILLA: What do you mean? Haven't you been taught to say your prayers?
ANNE: Mrs. Hammond told me that God made my hair red 15)on purpose, and I've never 16)cared for him since.
MARILLA: Well, while 17)you are under my roof, you will say your prayers.
ANNE: Why, of course, if you want me to. 18)How does one do it?
MARILLA: Well, you kneel beside the bed.
ANNE: That's the part I never really could understand. Why must people kneel down to pray? If I really wanted to pray, I'd go out into a great, big field, all alone, and I'd look up into the sky. I'd imagine it was the dome of a great cathedral, and then I'd close my eyes and just feel the prayer. 19)What am I to say?
MARILLA: Well, I think your old enough now to 20)think of your own prayer. You 21)thank God for his blessings and then 22)humbly 23)ask him for the things you want.
ANNE: I'll do my best. Dear 24)Gracious, Heavenly Father, I thank you for everything. As for the things I especially want, they're so 25)numerous 26)it would take a great deal of time to mention them all, so I'll just mention the two most important. Please, 27)let me stay at Green Gables. Please, make me beautiful when I grow up. I remain yours respectfully, Anne Shirley, with an "e". Did I do alright?
MARILLA: Yes, if you were 28)addressing a business letter to a catalog store. Get into bed.
ANNE: I should have said Amen instead of yours respectfully. Do you think it will 29)make any difference?
MARILLA: I expect God will 30)overlook it, this time. Good night.

ANNE: Good morning, Miss Cuthbert. Where's Matthew?
MARILLA: He had his breakfast hours ago. Been in the fields ever since. Why?
ANNE: I see I'll have to be up before 33)the break of day if 34)I'm to say good morning to Matthew. That is if...
MARILLA: If what?

MARILLA: Well, you'll just have to bear it because I simply don't know. I though maybe we'd 38)put it on trial for a while, 39)for all our sakes. 40)Would that suit you?
ANNE: If you think it's necessary, Miss Cuthbert.
MARILLA: I do. You may not be happy with two old 41)grumps like us.
ANNE: I know I would be. I'd be happier than even I can imagine at this present moment.
MARILLA: Come. While you're eating your breakfast, I want you to learn that. You need a little religion in your life 42)as bad as you need 43)fattening up.
ANNE: [reciting the opening lines to the Lord's Prayer] "Our Father, who art in heaven, 44)hallowed be thy name." That is just like a line of music. I'm glad you thought of making me learn this, Miss Cuthbert.

RACHEL: Considering on it? 50)What is there to consider? 51)A boy would have been bad enough but--
MARILLA: This is a friend and neighbor of mine, Mrs. Rachel Lynde. Anne Shirley.
ANNE: How do you do, Mrs. Lynde?
RACHEL: Well, her looks are certainly 52)nothing to consider. I mean she's 53)terribly skinny and 54)homely, Marilla. Come over here, child. 55)Lawful heart! Her hair is as red as carrots!
ANNE: 56)How dare you say I'm skinny and... carrots! You're a rude, impolite, 57)unfeeling woman, and I hate you!
MARILLA: Anne Shirley!
ANNE: 58)How would you like to have nasty things said about you? How would you like to be told that you're fat, and ugly, and a 59)sour old gossip.
MARILLA: Anne Shirley! Anne Shirley, you come back at once and apologize!
RACHEL: 60)Mark my words, Marilla. That's the kind that puts strychnine in the well.
MARILLA: You 61)shouldn't have 62)twitted her about her looks.
RACHEL: Marilla Cuthbert!
MARILLA: I'm not 63)making excuses for her. Perhaps she was never taught what was right, but you were too 64)hard on her, Rachel.
RACHEL: I see I'll have to be very careful what I say from now on. Oh, I'm not 65)vexed, Marilla. 66)I'm too sorry for you to 67)leave any room for anger in my mind. It's obvious to me that the good sense I admire you for 68)left you when that child walked in your door! Goodbye, Marilla.
