Voice Over: Shall I tell you a story? It’s the story of an orphan girl from a faraway land, who was sent to live in a mysterious house. And what if I were to tell you, she discovered something magical, something secret. Would you believe me? But let me start at the beginning.


Voice Over: This garden, it’s capable of extraordinary things. Now will you believe in the magic?


[as they are being driven towards the house]
Mrs. Medlock: There you have it, Mary. That’s Misselthwaite. That’s home.


Mrs. Medlock: [to Mary] You stick to your rooms, and your rooms only. No exploring. No poking about.


Mary Lennox: I didn’t ask to be here!


Lord Archibald Craven: [to Mary] If you cause me trouble, I’ll have you sent away in an instant. Do you understand?


Lord Archibald Craven: If you cause me trouble, I’m obliged by law to have you sent to school.
Mary Lennox: Then we’ll need to break the law, won’t we.


Martha: This house was filled with light, laughter, happiness.


Colin Craven: I saw you. Who are you?

Mary Lennox: I need you to keep a secret. I know a magical place, where the birds sing for you. You need to see it.


Mary Lennox: Are you Dickon?
Dickon: Hello.
[they shake hands]


Mary Lennox: I need you to keep a secret.
[Dickon spits on his hand and holds it out for Mary to shake]
Mary Lennox: Why did you just spat on yourself?
Dickon: If you’re too much of a lady, then there’s no…
[Mary spits on her hand]
Mary Lennox: I’m no lady, sir.
[she extends her hand and they shake hands]


Mary Lennox: What if I were to tell of you of a magical place, capable of extraordinary things.
Colin Craven: I’d say that you were lying.
Mary Lennox: Do you trust me?
[they shake hands]


Martha: You know what you risk?
Mary Lennox: It’s worth the risk.
