Roger Hamley: [Roger to Molly] Do you like my sermons? Have they given you an appetite for lunch? Come... I do know what you must be feeling. You must've thought I was very hard on you. I'm not very good at expressing myself, somehow I always fall into philosophizing. But I do feel very sorry for you, and I shall often be thinking of you. Squire Hamley: Well, I must go and dress. Madam wouldn't like me to come in like this. She's broken me in to her fine London ways and I'm all the better for it, I daresay. Molly Gibson: [on hearing of her father's engagement] So that's why I was sent away, was it? So all this could be arranged in my absence?
