August Nicholson: Who'll pinch me to wake me up? Who will laugh at me when I fall? Whose breath will I listen for so that I may sleep? Whose hand will I hold so that I may walk?More Movie: The Village  Movie: The Village  quotes [05/30/2007 12:05:00]
Mrs. Clack: [Edward Walker tells the group he has sent Ivy to the towns to fetch medicines] What have you done?
Edward Walker: He is the victim of a crime.
Mrs. Clack: We have agreed never to go back. Never
Edward Walker: What was the purpose of our leaving? Don't forget, it was out of hope of something good and right.
Robert Percy: You should not have made decisions without us!
Edward Walker: I'm guilty, Robert! I made a decision of a heart, I cannot look into another's eyes and see the same look I see in August's without justification! It is too painful, I cannot bear it!
Mrs. Clack: You have jeopardized everything we have made.
Edward Walker: Who do you think will continue this place, this life? Do you plan to live forever? It is in them that our future lies, it is in Ivy and Lucius that this way of life will continue. Yes I have risked, I hope I am always able to risk everything for the just and right cause. If we did not make this decision, we could never again call ourselves innocent, and that in the end is what we have protected here, innocence! That I'm not ready to give up.
August Nicholson: Let her go. If it ends, it ends. We can move towards hope, that's what's beautiful about this place. We cannot run from heartache. My brother was slain in the towns, the rest of my family died here. Heartache is a part of life, we know that now. Ivy is running toward hope, let her run. If this place is worthy, she'll be successful in her quest.
Mrs. Clack: How could you have sent her. She is blind.
Edward Walker: She is more capable than most in this village. And she is led by love. The world moves for love. It kneels before it in awe.More Movie: The Village  Movie: The Village  quotes [05/30/2007 12:05:00]
Ivy Walker: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?
Lucius Hunt: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear as others do is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night.More Movie: The Village  Movie: The Village  quotes [05/30/2007 12:05:00]
Ivy Walker: What is your name?
Young Security Guard: Kevin.
Ivy Walker: Kevin, you have kindness in your voice. I did not expect that.More Movie: The Village  Movie: The Village  quotes [05/30/2007 12:05:00]
Ivy Walker: I heard my parents speaking of you. I know of your request to go to the towns. I think it is noble, but I do not think it is right.
Lucius Hunt: Are you not angry you have no sight?
Ivy Walker: [whispering] I see the world, Lucius Hunt. Just not as you see it.
Lucius Hunt: [quietly] What of Noah, then? What if there are medicines for Noah, that could help him be still and to learn?
Ivy Walker: May we stop speaking of this? It is putting knots in my stomach.
[Ivy turns away, then turns back]
Ivy Walker: [whispering] Kitty is to be married. She's found love, again, with Christop Crane. You think it an odd choice, right? You know, he won't sit back in his chair for fear of setting wrinkles in his shirts. But he does have a gentlemanly way about him... and he does care for my sister, deeply. I think Kitty is blessed. I am blessed as well. My older sister is now spoken for. I am now free to receive interest from anyone... who might have interest.More Movie: The Village  Movie: The Village  quotes [05/30/2007 12:05:00]
