Memorable quotes Edit
- Josette: I don't believe there's been a greater love than existed between your father and me. Barnabas and I could not have survived without our love. When he died I felt such a total loss that for a time I though I might go insane. I made mistakes after that, many mistakes. But while Barnabas was alive I was as happy as any human being can be.
- Bramwell: Of course you came, I knew you would. Catherine, you will not stop this marriage any more than I stopped yours.
