The Secret Garden (1993 film)

The Secret Garden is a 1993 film adaptation of the book of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett, directed by Agnieszka Holland.


  • I didn't cry because I do not know how to cry.
  • My mother didn't have time to tell me stories.
  • You daughter of a pig!
  • May I have a bit of earth?
  • I've stolen a garden. But it may already be dead, I don't know.
  • The spell was broken. My uncle learned to laugh, and I learned to cry. The secret garden is always open now. Open, and awake, and alive. If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden. [last line of the film]
  • If you scream another scream, I will scream too. And I can scream louder than you, and for longer.

Be quiet! You're the most selfish boy that ever was! I hate you! No one who'se ill can scream like that!


  • I'm master when my father's away.
  • Spores are the little things in the wind that get stuck to your lungs.
  • I'm coming back tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that and the day after that.
  • I don't care.


  • When they said you were coming from India I thought you were going to be a native.
  • I thought all little girls liked to be tickled.
  • Begging your pardon, Miss.


[her uncle finds her sitting alone on the moor, after having been led there by Colin]

Lord Craven: Are you out here all by yourself?
Mary: It-it wasn’t wanted.
Lord Craven: What wasn’t wanted?
Mary: The-the garden.
Lord Craven: You’re right, I never wanted to see it again.
Mary: You never wanted to see Colin.
Lord Craven: You brought us back to life, Mary, you did something I thought no-one could do, I won't shut it up again, I promise, forgive me.

Colin Craven: Mary! Mary! What about the spores, can you see them! Mary! Mary! Mary! Oh, no! [falls out of his wheelchair and onto the floor screaming and crying]
Martha: Lem, come here and help me please! [Colin continues screaming and crying] Put him on the bed! Calm yourself, Master Colin. Just calm down, calm down. Go and see if Mrs. Medlock's back! Shh, calm down! Calm down, please! God.
