Paddy: Come back here and put your clothes on!
Young Richard: I don't wanna wear my old britches!
Paddy: It ain't proper to be runnin' 'round naked all the time! [stops, out of breath]


Emmeline: You're such a silly dodo, Richard. We're never getting off this island.
Richard: Thanks to you!
Emmeline: This is where we live, Richard. This is our home, now and forever.
Richard: No! I could never live here with just you! I don't even like you! You never used to laugh at me! You never used to have secrets you wouldn't tell me!
Emmeline: Well you're not so perfect either, Mr. Richard Lestrange. I've seen you playing with it, and I'll tell your father, if he ever gets here.
Richard: You! I hate you! [throws a rock at her narrowly missing her]
Emmeline: You almost hit me!
Richard: Take it back! Take back what you said!
Emmeline: [mockingly] I've seen it all! What happens after you've been doing it a long time?
Richard: Shut up! That isn't fair peeking, I don't peek on you!
Emmeline: That's a lie! You're always staring at my buppies.
Richard: Only 'cause they look so funny! You what you look like now, Em? You look like one of those pictures Paddy had in his drawer, one of his hootchie-cootchie girls!

Richard: There's so many things I don't understand, like why do the fish stop swimming and lie on top of the tide pools after a heavy rain? Why do you hear the waves inside the big shells? Why are all these funny hairs growing on me? I wish a big book with all the answers to every question in the world would drop out of the sky and land in my hands right now. I'd read it till I knew everything.
Emmeline: Oh Richard, you can't know everything. Only God knows everything.
Richard: God. He can't find us any better than Santa Claus.

Paddy: What's in them pictures, Richard?
Young Richard: It's a story about these funny people who get married. There's a saying in each one.
Paddy: Give us a look.
Young Richard: We're you ever married, Paddy?
Paddy: Seven times. Kids in every port from Clao to Macao. Seventeen at the last count, and never set eyes on a single one of 'em. Slant-eyed little devils, black little devils, even a couple of pink ones like you. And all with my eyes.
Young Richard: Paddy, what's subjugation?
Paddy: Something I've been trying to avoid all my life.

Paddy: Come back here, this ain't gonna hurt you!
Young Richard: We don't wanna go swimming! We don't have out bathing costumes.
Paddy: To hell with your bathing costumes, you don't wear 'em when you take a bath, do you?!
Young Emmeline: This isn't a bathtub! This is the ocean!

Richard: What are you looking at?
Emmeline: Your muscles.
Richard: What about them? You're really acting silly lately, Em. Always saying dumb things like that. Always looking at me funny! You're not coming down with something, are you? Don't give it to me.

Emmeline: [mocking Richard] It doesn't scare them away unless I can spear them! [throws an umbrella that acted as the spear]
Richard: Oh, I'll spear you!

Richard: [overpowering Emmeline] Say "Richard is the smartest on this island"!
Emmeline: No!
Richard: Say it!
Emmeline: Stop it, Richard! I'm getting angry! Stop it! Now, get off!
Richard: Say it!
Emmeline: Richard is the smartest person on this island!
Richard: Fastest swimmer!
Emmeline: Fastest swimmer!
Richard: And the fastest runner!
Emmeline: Fastest runner!
Richard: Best hut builder!
Emmeline: You're the best at everything, Richard! Now, get off!
Richard: [smirks] It's true! [releasing Emmeline]
Emmeline: Just you wait, Richard Lestrange, you'll never know when it's gonna happen! Just one little bite and you'll never wake up again!

Richard: Em, are you alright? Oh, I've been so worried!
Emmeline: You mean, you're not mad at me anymore?
Richard: Oh, of course not. All I could think of was, what would I ever do without my Em? What would I do?

Richard: [while eating fruit] Kiss me.
Emmeline: You're all sticky!
Richard: So what? Kiss me.
[Emmeline kisses him, but Richard won't let her go.]
Emmeline: Stop, I can't breathe.
Richard: But I don't wanna stop.
[Richard squeezes mango juice on Emmeline and kisses her.]
Emmeline: What are you doing? Stop it!
Richard: I have a funny feeling in my stomach.
Emmeline: Me too.
Richard: My heart is beating so fast.
Emmeline: Mine too.

[Richard tries to kiss Emmeline, but she cringes.]
Emmeline: I'm sorry, Richard.
Richard: You didn't want to all yesterday, either. What's the matter, Em, don't you love me anymore?
Emmeline: Yes, I love you more than ever, Richard.
Richard: Then why don't you want to do it?
Emmeline: It just hurts right now, that's all. When it stops hurting we'll do it.
Richard: When is that gonna be? I don't understand, Em. Why does it hurt?
Emmeline: I don't know. I don't know anything. But if you touch my tummy right now, you can feel it.
Richard: Feel what? [puts his hand on her belly] How'd you make your tummy move like that?
Emmeline: I'm not doing it.
Richard: It's not doing it by itself.
Emmeline: Yes it is.

Richard: Why are we always fighting so much?
Emmeline: I don't know.
Richard: That should be our new year's revolution. Stop fighting so much.
Emmeline: I'll try, but...
Richard: But what? Tell me.
Emmeline: I don't know what's wrong with me when I say the things I say. I just keep having all these strange thoughts.
Richard: What kind of thoughts?
Emmeline: Just funny thoughts about you and me.
Richard: Tell me.
Emmeline: I couldn't. Their just thoughts; they don't mean anything.
