“I’ll never forgive myself for not killing him when I had the chance!”
Daphne: Why are you so sad, Bramwell?
Bramwell: I’m not sad.
Daphne: You mean, nurse me back to health?
Bramwell: Of course.
Daphne: But you know that isn’t possible.
Bramwell: Not only is it possible…
Daphne: You know I’m going to die, don’t you?
Bramwell: Whatever makes you say a thing like that?
Daphne: Because I know it’s true.
Bramwell: It isn’t true! You must not think such things!
Daphne: I’m not afraid, Bramwell.
Bramwell: Daphne, please.
Daphne: No, Bramwell. You listen to me. I think I’ve known from the beginning, from the look on Dr. Fletcher’s face, and from the way everyone’s reacted. It’s not an easy thing to conceal.
Bramwell: You imagine this. It’s not so!
Daphne: Bramwell, how much time do I have?
Bramwell: Now, don’t talk like that!
Bramwell: We’ll go away as soon as you’re better!
Daphne: No, it was only a dream. That’s all it was, it was just a dream.
Bramwell: Don’t talk this way, Daphne. We’ll make it work, we’ll make it happen, I swear we will!
Daphne: Bramwell, while I know how much you mean that, it’s too late. Can’t you see that?
Daphne: You see life as Catherine does. You’re so alike, and that’s the reason why you belong together.
Bramwell: Daphne, you mustn’t say these things!
Bramwell: I cannot let you do this! If I hadn’t been so blind and selfish, this would never have happened!
Daphne: You mustn’t feel that way.
Bramwell: I’ll never be able to forgive myself for this.
Daphne: Bramwell, you’ve got nothing to forgive yourself for. You’ve only got a responsibilty for yourself, to make the best possible life for yourself that you can.
Bramwell: Not without you, my darling. Not without you!
Bramwell: I’ve given her nothing to live for, and now she’s dying.
Catherine: You mustn’t blame yourself.
Bramwell: But I do.
Dark Shadows bloopers to watch out for:
In the foyer, when Morgan says, “It surprises me a bit,” the camera switches to Catherine while they’re still zooming out from a closeup to a two-shot.
When Daphne is talking to Catherine, the music cue changes a moment too soon, anticipating Daphne’s turn for the worse before it happens.
Morgan tells Julia, “If Quentin finds him, he’s going to kill him. It seems that Gabriel made him promise he would do it. Before Gabriel went into that room, he promised Quentin that if he came out mad, that he would kill him. Until this point, Gabriel — Quentin hasn’t been able to bring himself to do it.”
