Ellie: [over phone] Features?
Rory: It’s Rory from Archive, I think I’ve found something you’d want to come and take a look at.


Rory: Uh, is that gum?
Ellie: Mm-hmm.
Rory: Yeah we don’t allow gum in the reading rooms.
[he offers her the trash can]
Ellie: Swallowed it.
Rory: Great!


Ellie: Look at this.
Rory: What is it?
Ellie: It’s a letter.


Ellie: While I was researching for my next feature, I came across some illicit love affair, Postmark 1965.


Ellie: [referring to the letter] What do you think you’ll do with it?
Rory: Burn it. No. I’m kidding. Probably just make sure it gets properly catalogued.
Ellie: Don’t. What about trying to track down whoever sent it?


Ellie: Thing is, if you’re going to elope now, you’d probably just send a text. “Hey, babes, meet me at the station if you’re interested, hashtag comewith, if you want to change your life forever. Smiley face, aubergine, road sign, sausage.


Ellie: [referring to the letters] I have to know if there are more of these.


Ellie: These letters, they’re so rich in feeling. And I’m going to have to know how it ends.


Rory: I think I found one
Ellie: Oh, my God!


Woman: [to Jennifer] You have the perfect life. The rich, handsome husband, who adores you.


Jennifer Stirling: Dear Mr. O’Hare, there is never enough time. Never enough of you.


Anthony O’Hare: Dear Mrs. Stirling, know that you hold my hopes, my heart in your hands.


Jennifer Stirling: Dear Mr. O’Hare, you demolished a wall around me I hadn’t known existed.


Anthony O’Hare: What if we ran away together?
Jennifer Stirling: Do you have any idea of what you’re asking of me?


Jennifer Stirling: I’m afraid to love you. I’m afraid that if I let myself go, I would love you so much it would consume me.


Anthony O’Hare: If you think this is even close to anything that I’ve ever felt, then you couldn’t be more wrong.


Anthony O’Hare: I’ll be on Platform Two, on Friday at 7:15PM. Come with me darling. Spare him a life half-lived for a marriage of convenience.


Laurence: [to Jennifer] If you try to leave, I will destroy you.
