Erica Burgoyne[edit]

  • Haven't you seen anyone with a twitch yet?
  • Father, don't you think we ought to ask Mr. Tisdall to dinner?


Erica Burgoyne: We ought to order tea or something if we're going to stay here long.
Old Will: Well, I'd sooner have beers.
Erica Burgoyne: I don't think we can get them at the moment.
Old Will: I better order it, since I'm the man, eh?

Old Will: Two cups of tea, please.
Waiter: Indian or Chinese?
Old Will: No, tea.

Old Will: What about dancin' around, eh?
Erica Burgoyne: Can you dance?
Old Will: No, of course not, duckie. But, I don't mind havin' a go. It's only half-walkin' anyway.

Robert Tisdall: I feel like Bonnie Prince Charlie. You must be Flora MacDonald.
Erica Burgoyne: A good while ago I was Florence Nightingale.

Erica Burgoyne: Oh Robert, if only things would turn out all right.
Robert Tisdall: They started to.
Erica Burgoyne: Why, how do you mean?
Robert Tisdall: You called me Robert.
Erica Burgoyne: Oh, did I? I-I didn't notice it.
