Mrs. Danvers:
[as the second Mrs. de Winter runs into the room] I watched you go down just as I watched her a year ago. Even in the same dress you couldn't compare.



The Second Mrs. de Winter:
You knew it! You knew that she wore it, and yet you deliberately suggested I wear it. Why do you hate me? What have I done to you that you should ever hate me so?



Mrs. Danvers:
You tried to take her place. You let him marry you. I've seen his face - his eyes. They're the same as those first weeks after she died. I used to listen to him, walking up and down, up and down, all night long, night after night, thinking of her, suffering torture because he lost her!



The Second Mrs. de Winter:
[turning away in shame and shock] I don't want to know, I don't want to know!



Mrs. Danvers:
[moving towards her] You thought you could be Mrs. de Winter, live in her house, walk in her steps, take the things that were hers! But she's too strong for you. You can't fight her - no one ever got the better of her. Never, never. She was beaten in the end, but it wasn't a man, it wasn't a woman. It was the sea!



The Second Mrs. de Winter:
[collapsing in tears on the bed] Oh, stop it! Stop it! Oh, stop it!



Mrs. Danvers:
[opening the shutters] You're overwrought, madam. I've opened a window for you. A little air will do you good.


[as the second Mrs. de Winter gets up and walks toward the window]



Mrs. Danvers:
Why don't you go? Why don't you leave Manderley? He doesn't need you... he's got his memories. He doesn't love you, he wants to be alone again with her. You've nothing to stay for. You've nothing to live for really, have you?


[softly, almost hypnotically]



Mrs. Danvers:
Look down there. It's easy, isn't it? Why don't you? Why don't you? Go on. Go on. Don't be afraid...
