Robert Morley Quotes:

[Last lines]
Narrator: And with that, she turned to the line ane held his hand. "Do the one with the funny curves again," she cooed, softly. So he did, and soon they did, and lived if not happily ever after, at least reasonably so.
Narrator: The dot wondered why she didn't notice how hairy and coarse he was, how unrefined and graceless, and how he mispronounced his L's and picked his ear. And suddenly she realized that what she thought was freedom and joy was nothing but anarchy and sloth. "You are as meaningless as a melon," she said cooly. "Undefined, unkempt and unaccountable, insignificant, indeterminate, and inadvertent, out of shape, out of order, out of place, and out of luck."

Narrator: His worried friends noticed so thin and drawn he was, and tried their best to cheer him up. "She's not good enough for you." "She lacks depth." "They're all alike anyway. Why don't you find a nice, straight line and settle down?"

Mycroft Holmes: For Heaven's sake, stop sawing away on that infernal instrument! It was a sad day when Mother gave it to you, a sad day for her, a sad day for you, a sad day for us all... What I cannot understand is why, since you've had that violin with you so long, you never learned to play!
