"I have no money with me," said the Wizard, evasively.
Just give me a minute.
Keep the third piece of wisdom for your own use, and let me have the gold.
What did you want me to say?
If they give me plenty of it I'll not complain about its color.
And--pardon me for the foolish question--but, are you all invisible?
Will you give me a cup of tea?
Follow me, please, to meet your doom.
My, aren't you the night owl tonight - the boy who has been dancing with me half the night.
They have told me nothing, and probably cannot tell me anything to the purpose.
They tell me I walked the day I was a year old.
Here is life, an experiment to a great extent untried by me; but it does not avail me that they have tried it.
Oh, don't speak to me of Austria.
Do me a favor and don't listen to Dulce.
"Give me the Star of Royalty!" she commanded.
They are no bigger than mice, and I'm sure mice are proper for me to eat.
You weren't going to introduce him to me... or Tessa?
You plotted against me, you lied to Prince Andrew about my relations with that Frenchwoman and made me quarrel with him, but you see I need neither her nor you!
"It sounds delightful to me," Alondra said, leaning back on the couch.
I have travelled a good deal in Concord; and everywhere, in shops, and offices, and fields, the inhabitants have appeared to me to be doing penance in a thousand remarkable ways.
Allow me to speak....
These, to me, are the most exciting companies to look at.
Will you show me how to do that?
But even if I had a robot that knew everything, I couldn't really say, "Tell me every custom they have here" and be fully informed.
You're supposed to be taking care of me, but that isn't realistic 100% of the time, is it?
But I warn you, if you don't tell me that this means war, if you still try to defend the infamies and horrors perpetrated by that Antichrist--I really believe he is Antichrist--I will have nothing more to do with you and you are no longer my friend, no longer my 'faithful slave,' as you call yourself!
It was, however—and this is sure to earn me the wrath of many humanities professors—a time of surprisingly little originality.
"Excuse me, your excellency," he began.
For God's sake send me somewhere else if only in command of a regiment.
First of all, dear friend, tell me how you are.
I see I have frightened you--sit down and tell me all the news.
"And then will you give me more?" he asked.
"It will try to bite me," he thought.
He doesn't force me to do what he wants.
I don't use history to predict the future, like some talisman that lets me pick winning lottery numbers (don't I wish).
I'm glad you saved me the trouble.
Let me illustrate this one from my own life.
What demon possessed me that I behaved so well?
"Go and get it for me," said the old prince to Mademoiselle Bourienne.
"No wonder you didn't want to tell me why you had to go," she accused in a cold tone.
So tell me, are you enjoying this vacation?
"Yes," sighed Eureka; "and I also can see you again, and the sight makes me dreadfully hungry.
"Mind, Annette, I hope you have not played a wicked trick on me," she added, turning to her hostess.
The impulse gone, I fell down and cried for her to take me up in her arms.
Hope that you'll start accepting me as your husband - your mate; not just a lover.
Remember the notion that the Internet wouldn't turn out to be only for one purpose—that while my car is clearly for taking me places, the Internet won't be for doing one single task, but many?
Don't let me die!
He has seen me in my blindness, and is trying to open my eyes.
"What would you have me do?" he said at last.
I knew because he proved to me that I could trust him with my heart and soul - the way you trust your mother and father.
Do you want to tell me about it?
"Dear me!" murmured the Wizard, looking at his pets in astonishment.
And if I can't eat the piglets you may as well plant me at once and raise catsup.
I want what you have - a husband who loves me - and children.
Don't tell me he's never mentioned me.
"I thought he was going to beat you to me again," "Who?" he asked again.
Carmen, remember what you said to me before we married?
Bwing me my pipe!
Are you going to tell me who he is?
I guess it does sound dull when I talk about it, but it's never dull to me, and Alex seems to be happy with things.
"Come with me," said the Prince to him.
Early one morning, however, the fever left me as suddenly and mysteriously as it had come.
Give me one of those polo shirts and I'll go wash up.
"Not for me," Carmen said instantly, and then blushed.
It is not for me to say how he spends his money.
"It sounds dull to me," Dulce said, and stood.
My sorcery tells me so.
Let me know at once when you will start.
You must please excuse me, he went on apologetically.
You will not call me father?
"I thought I remembered you telling me that," he said, sitting down on the bed.
"But you thought you should defend me," he said in a calculating tone.
"I don't know why you didn't just undress me when you put me in bed," she said.
You led me to believe we needed money... and you left me.
It hurts me, it hurts.
What are you going to hide from me that I haven't already seen?
Thank you for getting me off the hook.
To me, a beautiful horse is one that looks friendly.
He gave me his word he would not retreat, but suddenly sent instructions that he was retiring that night.
He was just showing me a house he said he was giving as a wedding gift.
Why would he want me down here?
You didn't say a word to your father, but you snarled at me as though I did something wrong.
I'm not all that secretive, but you were the one who kept telling me that if he wanted you to know, he'd tell you.
"It occurs to me you have a great deal to make you happy, even while invisible," remarked the Wizard.
"Very well, I won't touch it," decided the kitten; "but you must keep it away from me, for the smell is very tempting."
You haven't many teeth left, Jim, but the few you have are sharp enough to make me shudder.
The essence of my car is that it takes me places I want to go.
It is disgraceful, a stain on our army, and as for him, he ought, it seems to me, not to live.
Tell me, for God's sake, what will Russia, our mother Russia, say to our being so frightened, and why are we abandoning our good and gallant Fatherland to such rabble and implanting feelings of hatred and shame in all our subjects?
But your father didn't kiss me, and Josh didn't...
But in the excitement of carrying me to church my father lost the name on the way, very naturally, since it was one in which he had declined to have a part.
You have no respect for me?
If you absolutely insist on doing this, at least leave me instructions on how to get there... and a phone number where you can be reached.
Are you afraid of me, Lisa?
Then when I caught him spying on me at the restaurant in Huntsville...
Because he wanted to make me look bad in your eyes.
"It isn't the seating arrangements that bother me," he said.
"Alex tells me you have some nice horses on your ranch," Carmen said to Señor Medena.
Are you sure you don't want me to take her?
If he treats me differently than others, I'm sure it's because we are married.
Why didn't you tell me Dulce was giving you a hard time?
You keep telling me it's in the past - until you can dig it back up and throw it in my face again.
I think you owe me an explanation.
That's what's been bothering me all this time.
You would have had to tell me about an entire family you'd been hiding.
"And of me," he said.
I know you love me, but when people find out I lived with the Indians for three years...
My whole name is Zebediah; but folks just call me 'Zeb.'
This is a nice scrape you've got me into, isn't it?
I've tumbled through the air long enough to make me contented on this roof.
Let me see you equal the sorcery I am about to perform.
Now, good people, observe me carefully.
He won't need to destroy ME, for if I don't get something to eat pretty soon I shall starve to death, and so save him the trouble.
"Come here, please--Ianu and your sister--and let me feel of you," she requested.
Now you must feed me, Dorothy, for I'm half starved.
"I don't know," Dorothy answered; "but it would hurt me dre'fully to lose you."
"But tell me," said Dorothy, "how did such a brave Champion happen to let the bears eat him?
All I need do is to wish you with me, and there you'll be--safe in the royal palace!
I'm very certain, Oz, that you gave me the best brains in the world, for I can think with them day and night, when all other brains are fast asleep.
"You have queer friends, seems to me," replied the kitten, in a surly tone.
"Seems to me the same way," said Billina, scornfully, "if that beastly cat is one of them."
Do you take me for a salamander?
Do you take me for a weasel?
Ozma sprinkled me with a magic powder, and I just had to live.
"The flies never trouble me," said the Saw-Horse.
"It is not necessary for me to eat," observed the Sawhorse.
"I'm glad of that," said Jim; "for I, also, have a conscience, and it tells me not to crush in your skull with a blow of my powerful hoof."
If I could eat grass I would not need a conscience, for nothing could then tempt me to devour babies and lambs.
When I jerk it, then pull me out as quickly as you can.
But as I watch how we are building and using the Internet, the one-on-one encounters impress me most.
I lived, up to the time of the illness that deprived me of my sight and hearing, in a tiny house consisting of a large square room and a small one, in which the servant slept.
On a sudden thought I ran upstairs before any one could stop me, to put on my idea of a company dress.
This made me so angry at times that I kicked and screamed until I was exhausted.
No doubt, many of my townsmen have met me returning from this enterprise, farmers starting for Boston in the twilight, or woodchoppers going to their work.
You've made me quarrel with my son!
The princesses Aline and Sophie sit whole days with me, and we, unhappy widows of live men, make beautiful conversations over our 'charpie', only you, my friend, are missing... and so on.
Well, Michael Ivanovich," he suddenly went on, raising his head and pointing to the plan of the building, "tell me how you mean to alter it...."
Oh, that this toil might end and you would release me! thought he.
Quicker, quicker--and that they should leave me in peace!
'Take me away,' says she, 'don't let me perish with my little children!
"Let me alone; it's not true!" she cried angrily to him.
"Tell me, Carmen," Mary said as she dried a dish.
"Give me?" she teased, trying to lighten the mood.
Carmen, you're driving me crazy.
Have you come to take me to Hugson's Ranch?
Unhitch those tugs, Zeb, and set me free from the buggy, so I can fight comfortably.
I doubt you need me to prove these assertions—they are probably part of your daily experience.
My mother, moreover, succeeded in making me understand a good deal.
I wish you had called me.
What about Jonathan and me?
Don't plead my case for me.
I know they don't like me.
She doesn't have any reason to be jealous of me.
Felipa was telling me.
I don't think anyone was timing me.
Are wou pwoud of me?
She didn't come here to talk to me.
I just wish you'd stop hiding everything from me.
What do you have against me?
"More important," she continued, "Dulce gave this picture to me.
In fact, she said it was for me.
More like Dulce has been talking to me.
I don't want you to give it up because of me.
I know life would have been a lot simpler for me.
Are you trying to protect me?
I don't see how that's any different than you trying to protect me.
When I realized she intended to get you drunk it went all through me.
You didn't hurt me.
I didn't need you to rescue me.
You're angry with me.
He must come to me.
I loved him and he left me.
He has you and now he forgets me.
Why are you disappointed in me?
Why are you always blaming me?
"It's good to be home," he whispered, "with the people who mean the most to me."
All I know is what Mom and Dad taught me.
Did you need time away from me?
It was disrespectful of me.
Mom told me that Dad forgave her for her affair with Señor Medena.
They don't sound at all alike to me.
"I wonder if Alex reminded me it was his money because he thinks I spend it unwisely," Carmen mused aloud.
He shared them with me.
But why didn't you say something to me about all of this before now?
If you don't get some sleep when you go home, you won't be able to relieve me tonight.
She has to talk to father about it and she will call back later this morning to let me know when she will be here.
"If you wake me up early, I'll help you with the chores too," Jonathan told Alex.
No, if one of us has to get snowed in up here, I'd rather it was me.
Call me if there's any change.
He would not let me come alone.
Show me where we might eat.
Do you want me to get him?
He says he thinks he has a cold, but the doctor told me he could get pneumonia real easy.
Many times he tells me.
He did a lot of researching before he talked to me.
You are more important to me than having children.
Come to me right now!
I've seen opossums that weren't afraid of me, though.
"I hate it when you do this to me," she finally said softly.
You spring something on me and then you just shut me out - like what I feel isn't important.
I don't know what's been bothering you lately, but if I've done something, I wish you would tell me.
I know you would stand beside me - maybe even in front of me with the intent of protecting me.
Mommy and me get pwetty for wou.
"Me wana take a baf," she said, holding up a plastic toy.
Mommy... Me wedy get out.
"Let me remind you," she said as she leaned forward and kissed his lips."
He's always been secretive, and whenever I ask him, he just tells me it's something I don't want to be involved in.
He's treating you like he did me.
You want me to think of all this as ours, but how can I when you insist that the problems are all yours?
Just because it upsets me doesn't mean I don't want to know - or that you shouldn't tell me.
I don't know why she didn't ask for it before - or why she didn't tell me about the baby.
Don't treat me that way, Alex.
It makes me feel small when you keep things from me - like you don't trust me, or you think I'm not mature enough to handle it.
"I love that you're protective," she interrupted, "even when there is nothing to protect me from.
Why would she hide him from me all this time and suddenly ask for a fortune?
She wanted me to tell him - and you.
I can imagine why she wanted you to tell me.
Wouldn't it have been easier if you had told me?
Gosh Alex, didn't you realize that all this silence was already troubling me?
It doesn't matter to me one way or another, but I wish you would at least make an effort at seeing his side of it.
Yes, you have not forgiven me.
Take everything from me.
That would show me, yes?
While you are under my roof, you will treat me with respect.
"Don't you wag that fork at me," she warned.
Could you help me zip this?
"Pinch me," Carmen finally said.
Thank you for calling me.
I guess he's always been a part of me... one I've wasted most of my life trying to remove.
He wasn't the one who gave me a bad name.
He respected the man who raised me, even when I rejected my natural father.
I'm so glad you talked me into this.
But you kept trying to take me from them.
No wonder she resented me.
Give me some information.
"Tell me it's not true," she heard her emotionless voice saying to no one in particular.
Lisa. Listen to me.
"Excuse me," he said.
"You know," Lisa said, "you don't need to stay here and take care of me any longer.
You answer me, but you don't hear me.
Or do you think he'd consider it part of his job to watch me?
All Len wants out of me is information about Allen, and Howard couldn't care less where I am.
You've been a comfort to me.
And I'm glad I could be there when you needed me.
Just remember, I'll always be there – whenever you need me.
Well, are you going to let me in?
Come on, let me in.
This is between you and me, not the entire neighborhood.
"No one is staying with me," she answered sharply, and then realized she had revealed she was alone.
For the last time, Howard isn't interested in me.
I'm not going home until you talk to me.
I didn't mean to yell at you, but you nearly scared me to death.
Come to the house with me.
You'll be safe from me there.
If I could use your phone, Mrs. Giddon, I'll see if I can find someone to come get me.
Nonsense, you're not putting us out, but you're more than welcome to use the phone... and please call me Sarah.
"You'll have to hold on to me," he spoke gruffly over a shoulder.
I said hold on to me.
Don't let me slow you down.
"I'll make you a deal," he spoke evenly, "you don't hit me and I won't hit you."
"It's nice to know you're not angry with me," she said dryly.
I hate to ask you for another favor, but I wonder if I could pay you to drive me home.
You asked me to drive you home, don't you remember?
Why didn't you tell me?
It does to me.
It was nice of you to help me out... even if it was grudgingly.
Maybe what I needed was someone to kick me to my feet.
Good. Pack your clothes and come back with me.
Can you watch the house for me while I'm gone?
No, it's no one my family knew but I think the change will be good for me.
I'll be over there in a few minutes so you can show me what needs to be taken care of while you're gone.
Come on back and help me pack.
You didn't tell me he was gorgeous!
Besides, he offered me $250 a week.
I don't want people harassing me.
Take care of yourself, and if you have any problems, call me.
Take me back to my house.
"I suppose that's the one thing that troubles me most," Lisa admitted.
Why would he call me?
Don't apologize to me, I was enjoying the show.
Are you telling me I can't go for a walk?
How did you know where to find me?
Surely you're not trying to hide from me.
If you feel that way, why did you come all the way out here to see me?
"In the future," he spoke crisply, "I'd appreciate it if you consulted me before inviting guests into my home."
But you didn't invite me.
What would you have me wear, a sweat suit?
If you don't want me to use the pool, just say so.
You'll have to show me these beautiful flowers.
I may be footing the bill, but you're working for Mom, not me.
Stay close to me.
It would make me feel better.
If Len has time, maybe he could help me.
I expect you to repay me once it's sold.
Sit down and let me look at it.
"You can't carry me all the way to the house," She said, clinging to his neck.
I want you to promise me you won't go into the woods alone again.
Are you sorry you brought me here?
Anyway, I was lucky it was a low cliff and that Yancey found me before a bear did.
I've already told her, but she won't listen to me either.
You actually sought out my company - or did you have something earth-shattering to tell me?
I know, but humor me.
Tell me the truth now, aren't you enjoying the ride?
Howard gave me the directions and I thought I'd stop by.
That's why I wanted you to look for me.
I wondered why you asked me to look for it.
Did Connie tell Allen where to find me?
Call me if you need me – and you won't be taking advantage of me.
I'll keep that in mind the next time the sergeant barks at me.
Len is going to take care of the details for me.
I think you are a little afraid of me, Lisa.
Well, you haven't broken your record with me.
Len told me about your car.
I wish you had told me.
Connie is picking me up.
Connie is taking me by to pick it up.
I guess if he thought it was any of my business, he'd tell me.
He hired me as a sitter and maid.
Things are coming to me like waking from a nightmare.
Then go with me.
You can go with me or stay here.
It doesn't matter to me.
I miss that and I'm not going to be held back simply because you're afraid to have me wandering around on my own.
I don't think you're as afraid of me as you are of your own feelings.
They never bothered me that much.
Connie gave me this number to call you.
Well, do you want me to come back home?
Just let me know if something comes up and you think I need to come home.
If things get too hot, call me - collect, you hear?
Why did you hide it from me?
Are you afraid of me?
You don't know why you hid it, or you don't know if you're afraid of me?
Well, it doesn't look like you're all that scared of me right now.
So I've finally found something you're afraid of more than me.
You should join me sometime.
Oh sure, and if I started taking my clothes off, you'd tell me to stop, right?
Why are you trying to get away from me, Litha?
I'll go with you if you want me to.
The one you dumped me for.
And don't tell me you aren't playing house with him.
Don't give me that.
Because you told me to, remember?
You must have known what Allen would do to me if he caught me alone.
How did you know Allen was looking for me?
I came in a few minutes later and she told me.
Allen came here to ask me questions about you.
I told him I didn't know anything and he tried to strangle me.
Tell me how it happened.
Because he was trying to dig up dirt on me so she'd leave.
No, a restraining order wouldn't stop him from finding me if he wanted to, and it might just make him mad enough to do something worse.
Yes. Can you bring me down here tomorrow to get my car?
Do you want me to carry you inside?
Didn't you see me when you walked by?
When will you be able to take me to get my car?
Let me go lock the shop.
He's going to take me to where we left my car last night.
You don't have any reason to be afraid of me.
Are you angry with me?
Can he hear me talking?
Do you want me to call Len?
Let me know when you're through talking.
The man told him he needed to get rid of me and Yancey told him he'd deal with me in his own way.
He won't talk to me, but he isn't slamming anything around.
If he wanted to hurt me, he could follow me in my car.
As long as I'm doing what he expects me to do, he'll have doubt.
I don't know what came over me to act that way.
Because you want to marry me?
You'd do anything to keep me silent - even marry me.
Tell me, Yancey, her voice broke with emotion.
Would you kill me to keep me silent?
It's a part of me, and if we're going to have anything together, you're going to have to accept it.
"That's still got me," he interrupted, frowning.
He wanted you to get rid of me.
Yeah, he wanted me to get rid of you, all right.
He could see I was getting serious, and he was afraid you would draw me away from my work.
You told her you weren't going to let me go back to college.
So that's why you were looking me up and down the day we met.
And you looked me over defiantly.
I didn't think I had a chance of getting someone like you to sit for me.
Sleuthing mostly, but it didn't take me long to realize that most people give a lot away if you listen and observe profoundly.
Reminds me of someone else I know.
He must have gone straight from there to me.
Ironically, it was something he told me Lisa said that gave me the idea to search somewhere else.
Then I remembered her talking to me about the paintings on his walls.
It also told me he was willing to make a sacrifice for her protection.
It was Giddon who called me.
I could understand why he would be chasing her, but if I'd have known she'd go for a guy older than me...
She was the one who told me that he was a child prodigy.
She told me she thought she loved Giddon, but at the same time she was having Howard investigate him.
I think helping Lisa has made me realize that one person can make a difference.
Each case I handle gives me that much more experience.
Mom always told me to watch out for those fast talkers.
Ever since Michael discovered that Brandon lives here, he's followed me around like a puppy.
I told her we had house rules; no hanky-panky, but she didn't believe me.
I made the mistake of telling her that parents of two of the girls wanted me here to protect them from thieves and murderers.
Is that why you want to take me up there - to show your mother how ridiculous the thought of any hanky panky is?
You're beginning to hack me off.
It's only two blocks, and it gives me a chance to wake up.
You're putting me on, aren't you?
Is someone else muscling in on me?
Brandon would be horrified by any thought of a romantic involvement with me.
You're the first girl who has ever accepted me for what I am.
So that's why you brought me here.
Don't get bossy with me, Mr. Marsh.
You can always talk to me about your troubles, you know.
The smoke was bothering me and I didn't want to ruin the party for all of you, so I simply walked home.
Do you want me to walk you home?
They didn't know what to think - you coming in here all huffy and chewing me out.
Working, studying... don't you have a minute you can set aside - for me?
It's not like I'm asking you to run away with me.
Let me think about it.
I'm beginning to wonder if you're too polite to tell me to shove off.
If he thinks I might be up today, he'll insist on staying home so he won't miss me.
Are you angry with me because I didn't want to go up to see your parents?
It's just that sometimes I wonder what is more important in your life - your career or me.
You're asking me to drop everything when I'm so close to achieving my goal.
Do you want me to give up my schooling just to prove that I love you more?
This thing happens to be very important to me.
Do you want me to drive you there?
Just sit back and don't distract me.
Maybe you should let me drive.
If you need anything, be sure to call me.
He barely talked to me.
The only thing he had to say to me was that I should get you or Julia to pick me up.
But he asked me to leave.
Mom needs me right now.
So, that's why you've been shutting me out.
Do you know how that made me feel?
When you sent me away at the hospital, I thought you were through with me.
