Memorable dialogueEdit

Amos Brearly: "I remember when my own mother died. I'll never forget the women who lived at the corner house. Misses Cahoon they were. They'd been friends with my mother for thirty years and known me right from t'start."
Henry Wilks: "Aye?"
Amos Brearly: "I were walking back from school a few days later, I were only six, sobbing me heart out I was and I saw the Misses Cahoon coming the other way. D'ya know what they did, Mr Wilks? They crossed over t'road."
Henry Wilks: (sighs and shakes head) "Really?"
Amos Brearly: "I remember seeing 'em coming and thinking 'Oh good, there's the Misses Cahoon, they'll make sense of all this tragedy' and they gave me a sort of funny look and crossed over."
