Tom Penderel: You, uh... why, you must be very lonely. Well, I mean, uh, all alone...
Morgana Femm: Oh, you have no idea. Every night in this house, with just a whole family of Femms.

Agatha Femm: [Knitting] I capture time and space in my stitches. Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I stopped.
Tom Penderel: Happen? To you?
Agatha Femm: No, no. To the world.
