Possession (2002) Poster


Gwyneth Paltrow: Maud Bailey



  • Roland Michell : So what are we gonna do now? We gonna try to beat'em to France, or - or are we just gonna stare at each other?

    Maude : That is the question, isn't it?

    Roland Michell : Mm-hmmm

    Maude : I have another one for you.

    Roland Michell : What's that?

    Maude : What are you really doing here?

    Roland Michell : Well, I uh - I needed to see your face. I just wanted to let you know that whatever happened at Whitby, which unfortunately was not much, is not because anything that you did. Not at all. I just didn't want to jump into something. I mean, I did and I do... want to. Badly. I just didn't want to mess this up. And I just want to see -

    [clears throat] 

    Roland Michell : I want to see if there's an us in you and me. Would-Would you like that?

    [Maude leans over and kisses Roland] 

    Roland Michell : I'll take that as a yes.

  • Maude : [the morning after they hooked up which Roland put a stop to]  Okay, let's not beat the thing dead. It happened. We're both grown-ups...

    Roland Michell : Speak for yourself.

    Maude : I'd hate to see how you're like after you actually sleep with someone.

  • [to Roland the morning after their first night together, and first kiss] 

    Maude : I can't imagine what you're like after you actually sleep with someone!

  • Maude : [they are standing on rocks in a river looking at a waterfall that Maude recalls in one of Christabell's poems that describes a cave behind the waterfall. Upon sharing that with Roland, he immediately starts taking his clothes off]  I know this is an awfully repressed sort of English thing to say, but what the hell are you doing?

    Roland Michell : How else are we going to find out if there's a cave?

    [Dives into the water] 

    Maude : [smiling, and speaking to no one]  We could ask someone.

  • Roland Michell : Don't worry about me. I'm kind of a brush and flush kinda guy.

    [seeing Maude's repulsed expression] 

    Roland Michell : Forget I said that.

    Maude : I'll try.
