The Lost Boys (1978– )
Tim Pigott-Smith: Arthur Llewelyn Davies
Mary Hodgson : I don't wish to speak out of turn, but I do understand how you feel.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Do you, Mary?
Mary Hodgson : I think so. I mean, it must be very hard for you at times.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : One grins and bears it.
Mary Hodgson : And it can't be easy for Mrs. Barrie, either.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : I was referring to the toothache.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : I wanted to get you an edition with illustrations, but your mother thought they might give you nightmares.
Michael : Give me what?
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies : Give you nightmares, darling, because... Oh, never mind. Why don't you wheel your father around the garden and show him all the flowers that have come up since he's been gone?
Nico : Michael, look what Uncle Jim has brought you!
Michael : Oh, may I go and open it?
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies : Michael, darling, you really ought to...
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Let him go if he wants to.
Jack : Why does he call him Uncle Jim?
George : Well, why not?
Jack : He's not our uncle.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Now, Jack, I think Uncle Jim suits him very well.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : I wonder what we would have done without Mr. Barrie.
Jack : We would have done all right.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : What was that, Jack?
Jack : Nothing, Father.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : I think it was something. Jack, I want you to listen to me. I understand how you feel about Mr. Barrie. No one understands as well as I do, because it's how I used to feel about him myself. The only thing we ever had in common was our love for you boys, and no father likes to share his children with another man. But now, I have heard so much from him that is wise and good, and I have come to regard him as a brother. His love for you boys is a great comfort when I think of your future without me.
George : But... but you're nearly better! Mother said so!
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : There's always a chance, but...
Jack : No, it's not true! Father, say it's not true!
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : I'd howl if I thought it would do any good, but we must try to be brave. We mustn't think of ourselves. We mustn't, we mustn't...
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : I get little enough time with the boys as it is, and... Besides, what right has he got to wander in here day in and day out as if he owned the place?
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies : I invited him in.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Well, you didn't invite him in yesterday because I was the only one here
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies : Yesterday you invited him in.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Well, one tries to be civil.
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies : I really don't see what you're making such an issue about. Jimmy is a friend of the boys, and they're friends of his. It all seems perfectly reasonable to me.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Well, it doesn't to me, nor to one or two other people, to be frank. They find the whole thing rather odd.
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies : What's odd about it, for heaven's sake?
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : You know perfectly well what I mean. I mean odd. Unhealthy.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : You don't mind, do you? About the boys?
Mary Barrie : Not really. At least they help him take his mind off his depressions. I try to help him, but... I've been married to him for seven years now, and not once have I found the key. But they seem to have found it without even trying.
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Did Sylvia mention that we're thinking of moving from London?
Mary Barrie : No, where to?
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Nothing's been decided yet. We're still in two minds about it. But I've got my eye on a house in Berkhamstead. It's not too far from London, and there's a good school for the boys.
Mary Barrie : This has nothing to do with Jim, has it?
Arthur Llewelyn Davies : Good heavens, no.
