Quotes from

Dimples: Mrs. Drew, do you still think I'm worth five thousand dollars?
Mrs. Caroline Drew: You're worth ever so much more, darling.
Dimples: And do you still want me to come and live with you?
Mrs. Caroline Drew: I'd like nothing more in the world.
Dimples: All right, I'll come. Do you have the five thousand dollars with you?

Mrs. Caroline Drew: Professor, your granddaughter is a remarkable child, an appealing child. As briefly as I've known her, I've become very fond of her.
Prof. Eustace Appleby: That's easy to see, Mrs. Drew, and easy to understand, too.
Mrs. Caroline Drew: In fact, I'm so fond of her, I want to propose something to you, something for her good. I'm going to ask you to let her come and live with me and let me do all I can for her.
Prof. Eustace Appleby: You mean I - I should give Dimples up?
Mrs. Caroline Drew: This sort of life isn't what a child should have. You know that. For all your love and devotion, you aren't helping Dimples. You're hurting her. You may ruin her whole life.
Prof. Eustace Appleby: But I - I love Dimples.
Mrs. Caroline Drew: I know. That's why I'm asking this of you.

Prof. Eustace Appleby: But I didn't mean to do it, Dimples. Don't you see?
Dimples: You broke your promise to me!
Prof. Eustace Appleby: But the man swore to me. He gave me his word.
Dimples: You told me you wouldn't steal anymore! You said you were gonna be honest!
Prof. Eustace Appleby: But I didn't take that watch for myself, I - well, uh, I - I guess I'm not much good to you. Maybe you'd be better off without me.
