Dominic Mafham: Mortimer Lightwood

Quotes 

  • Mortimer Lightwood : I'm horribly awake. Eugene I can't lose sight of that fellow's face.

    Eugene Wrayburn : I can.

  • Lady Tippins : To lose the ward and the secretary in one afternoon, that was extremely imprudent of Mr. Boffin. What is worse: Miss Bella Wilfer and the Rokesmith fellow have run off together. Oh really, Mortimer! When you know the man needs counsel.

    Mortimer Lightwood : I hardly see how I am to blame. When two people are inclined to run off together, a lawyer is the last person to prevent it.

  • Eugene Wrayburn : My dear Mortimer, you are the express picture of contented industry. Reposing after the virtues of the day.

    Mortimer Lightwood : And you, my dear Eugene, are the express picture of discontented idleness.

  • Mortimer Lightwood : Are you sure? ... Eugene, do you have some debt I don't know about?

    Eugene Wrayburn : Observe the legal mind! Respected solicitor, it's not that. The schoolmaster's abroad.

  • Mortimer Lightwood : But he still lives, and he did you dreadful injury, and I cannot help but feel he should be punished.

    Eugene Wrayburn : No, Mortimer. He does not live. And he did me a favor.

    Mortimer Lightwood : A favor!

    Eugene Wrayburn : Yes. Oh yes, consider this. Had he not attacked me, I don't know what I would have done. How I would have injured her in my reckless passion. Mortimer, listen. Listen. I would have lost her respect, any possibility of our love would have gone forever, consider that. And consider what I have, now. And then tell me whether the schoolmaster lives, if not as some ghost between here and hell, knowing as he does that he brought us together... You think he does not have punishment enough?

  • Mortimer Lightwood : Are you sure?... Eugene, do you have some debt I don't know about?

    Eugene Wrayburn : Observe the legal mind! Respected solicitor, it's not that. The schoolmaster's abroad.
