Quotes from the Movie The Childrens Hour

Stop the crazy talk.

Karen

I'm guilty.

Martha

You're guilty of nothing!

Karen

I've been telling myself that since the night we heard the child says it; I've been praying I could convince myself of it. I can't, I can't any longer. It's there. I don't know how, I don't know why. But I did love you. I do love you. I resented your marriage; maybe because I wanted you...

I've been telling myself that since the night we heard the child says it; I've been praying I could convince myself of it. I can't, I can't any longer. It's there. I don't know how, I don't know why. But I did love you. I do love you. I resented your marriage; maybe because I wanted you...

Martha

It's a lie. You're telling yourself a lie. We never thought of each other that way.

Karen

No, of course you didn't. But who says I didn't? I never felt that way about anybody but you. I've never loved a man... I never knew why before. Maybe it's that.

Martha

You are tired and sick.

Karen

It's funny; it's all mixed up. There's something in you, and you don't know anything about it because you don't know it's there. I couldn't call it by name before, but I know now. It's there. It's been there ever since I first knew you. I don't know. It all seems to come back to me. I've ruined your life and I've ruined my own... Oh, I feel so damn sick and dirty I can't stand it anymore!

Martha

All this isn't true. You've never said it; we'll forget it by tomorrow.

Karen

Tomorrow? That's a funny word. Karen, we would have had to invent a new language, as children do, without words like tomorrow.

Martha
