Nina Foch Quotes:

Moses: [Moses opened the door, after Bithiah knocked] Bithiah.
Bithiah: In fear of your God, they have set me free. May a stranger enter?
Moses: There are no strangers among those who seek God's mercy.
Bithiah: And my bearers?
Moses: All who thirst for freedom, may come with us. The shadow of death will pass over us tonight. And tomorrow, we will see the light of freedom.
Bithiah: I shall go with you, Moses.
Miriam: One from the house of Pharoah?
Aaron: An Egyptian?
Miriam: An idol worshipper!
Moses: This woman drew me from the Nile and set my feet upon the path of knowledge. Mered, bring another chair to the table.
Bithiah: A great light shines from your face, Moses. Perhaps, some day, I shall come to understand it.


Carol Flemming: [moments before she is strangled by her husband] Our second honeymoon may be better than our first.


Ralph Hughes: Marion, darling. How do you feel? Why, you look better this morning, much better! Doesn't she, Mother?
Mrs. Hughes: Indeed she does!
Julia Ross: My name isn't Marion, and I'm not married to you or anyone. I was engaged as a secretary! Now what does this all mean? Why did we leave London?
Mrs. Hughes: You haven't forgotten us again, have you, Marion?
Julia Ross: I'm not Marion, and you know it.
Mrs. Hughes: All right, dear. Let's not argue. Let's just have our tea, and perhaps another nap, and then you'll feel much better.
Ralph Hughes: I'm afraid it's cold.
Mrs. Hughes: Alice, bring some more hot water quickly, please.
Alice: Yes, mum.
Julia Ross: I don't know what this is all about, but I promise you some very serious trouble unless you stop it immediately. You know perfectly well I'm Julia Ross.
Mrs. Hughes: Marion, dear, please don't excite yourself so. You'll just bring on another attack.
Julia Ross: Attack? Attack of what?
Mrs. Hughes: Nerves, dear, just nerves. Oh, we do so want you to know you're with your own family!
Julia Ross: Nonsense!
Ralph Hughes: Marion, darling!
[He grasps her by her arm]
Ralph Hughes: Control yourself!
Julia Ross: Let me go.
Mrs. Hughes: We're doing everything in our power to make you well again.
Julia Ross: [Ralph's grasp becomes painful] Let me go! If you don't stop this, I'll have you arrested!
[Clearly Ralph's grip is unbearable]
Julia Ross: Why are you doing this? It's so stupid, so silly!
