Mary Ure Quotes:

Jimmy Porter: She's taken you with her and you're so bloody wet you've let her do it.
Alison Porter: All I want is a little peace.

Jimmy Porter: Remember that time we first met, grisly party. Didn't really notice me at all. I couldn't take my eyes off you all evening. You seemed to have such a wonderful relaxation of spirit. I knew that was what I wanted. Then after we were married I realised it wasn't relaxation after all. To relax you've got to sweat your guts out. You, you never had a hair out of place or a bead of sweat anywhere. I know I'm a lost caues but I thought if you loved me it didn't really matter.
Alison Porter: It does matter, I was wrong. I don't want to be neutral, I want to be a lost cause. Don't you understand - it's gone, that helpless human being inside my body. I thought it was so safe and secure in there but its gone. All I wanted was to die. I was in pain and all I could think about was you and what I'd lost.

Jimmy Porter: I'm sorry.
Alison Porter: Get out.
Jimmy Porter: You think I did it on purpose?
Alison Porter: Clear out of my sight!
