Mr. Barrows: Captain Crewe is dead. He was so reported in the list this morning. Moreover, he died bankrupt. His property and his mines were confiscated by the enemy.
Amanda Minchin of Minchin Seminary for Girls: You mean to tell me that the child is penniless, and she's left on my hands with nothing?
Mr. Barrows: She's certainly left penniless, and she's certainly left on your hands. She hasn't a relative in the world that we know of.
Amanda Minchin of Minchin Seminary for Girls: I'll throw her out on the streets.
Mr. Barrows: Do you think that wise, Miss Minchin? The reputation of your school, you know. That may not sound well to the parents of some of your other pupils. The child could be made to serve as your employee until her indebtedness is paid off.More Movie: The Little Princess [1939] Movie: The Little Princess [1939] quotes [07/31/2008 12:07:00]

Rose Hamilton: Miss Minchin has taken away my Thursday afternoons. We mustn't be seen together.
Geoffrey Hamilton: Does that mean that I can never see you alone again?
Rose Hamilton: Of course not, darling. No matter what Miss Minchin says, we'll find a way.
Geoffrey Hamilton: I can't understand the woman! Why shouldn't we see each other? What is she so afraid of?
Rose Hamilton: Gossip, I suppose. Miss Minchin lives for that school and her ideas of pride and snobbishness.
Geoffrey Hamilton: Fiddlesticks! She's afraid of losing an excellent teacher whom she gets for nothing! I won't stand for it! I'll have a talk with her myself!
Rose Hamilton: Oh no, darling, you mustn't do that. She'd only discharge us both.
Geoffrey Hamilton: She might not have the chance if things continue to pop in South Africa.More Movie: The Little Princess [1939] Movie: The Little Princess [1939] quotes [07/31/2008 12:07:00]
