NANCY: Marianne says he was a remarkable man.

PATRICK: You should have heard the remarks.

NANCY: Was it a difficult relationship, Patrick?

PATRICK: Yes, Nancy. Yes, it was.

JERRY: When did the trouble start?

PATRICK: 9th of June, 1906. The day he was born.

JERRY: Well, fatherhood was very different in those days.

NANCY: Yes, perhaps he just didn’t know how to express his love.

PATRICK: Cruelty is the opposite of love, not some inarticulate expression of it.
