Julian Sands as George Emerson

  • (Julian Sands) "He's the sort who can't know anyone intimately, least of all a woman. He doesn't know what a woman is. He wants you for a possession, something to look at, like a painting or an ivory box. Something to own and to display. He doesn't want you to be real, and to think and to live. He doesn't love you. But I love you. I want you to have your own thoughts and ideas and feelings, even when I hold you in my arms."

  • (Reverend Beebe) "You've not reflected at all. Let me cross-examine you. Where did you meet Mr. Vyse, who will marry Miss Honeychurch?"
  • (Julian Sands) "The National Gallery."
  • (Reverend Beebe) "Looking at Italian art. You see, you talk of coincidence and fate. You're naturally drawn to things Italian, as are we and all our friends, aren't we, Freddy? That narrows the field immeasurably."
  • (Julian Sands) "It is fate. But call it Italy if it pleases you, Vicar."
  • (Julian Sands) "My father says there is only one perfect view, and that's the view of the sky over our heads."

  • (Helena Bonham Carter) "You always say that, Charlotte, but you always do forgive yourself."

Daniel Day-Lewis as Cecil Vyse

  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "What is it about Italy that makes lady novelists reach such summits of absurdity?"
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "I have no profession. My attitude; quite an indefensible one; is that as long as I am no trouble to anyone, I have the right to do as I like. It is, I dare say, an example of my decadence."
  • (Daniel Day-Lewis) "You don't love me, evidently. I dare say you're right not to, but -- it would help a little, hurt a little less, if I knew why."
  • (Helena Bonham Carter) "Because you're the sort who can't know anyone intimately, least of all a woman."

Patrick Godfrey as The Reverend Mr. Eager

  • (Patrick Godfrey) "Remember the facts about this church of Santa Croce; how it was built by faith in the full fervour of medievalism."
  • (Denholm Elliott) "Built by faith indeed. That simply means the workers weren't paid properly."

Judi Dench as Eleanor Lavish

  • (Judi Dench) "A young girl, transfigured by Italy. And why shouldn't she be transfigured? It happened to the Goths."
  • (Judi Dench) "Smell. A true Florentine smell. Inhale, my dear. Deeper. Every city, let me tell you, has its own smell."
