ST JOHN RIVERS
We sail in six weeks. We must make marriage preparations.
JANE EYRE
Why can we not travel as brother and sister? As equals?
ST JOHN RIVERS
That would be impossible.
JANE EYRE
St. John, you do not love me.
ST JOHN RIVERS
Love is not an ingredient in this matter.
ST JOHN RIVERS
I fear you have not forgotten your old association despite the harm he tried to do you.
JANE EYRE
I'll never see any of them again. But I owe a debt to my friends at Thornfield Hall. In many ways, I started my life there. I became Jane Eyre.
ST JOHN RIVERS
God made Jane Eyre! You surely don't give this man Rochester any credit for that!
JANE EYRE
Of course not. I've always known myself. But he was the first to recognize me. And to love what he saw.
JANE EYRE
I'll give you your answer St. John soon, don't worry. And if I go with you that will be my decision. You'll have him to thank for that. [leaves the room]

JANE EYRE
Hurry, Hannah. We must light the fires before they arrive.
HANNAH
[to St.John] She wants fire in every room, in places where they never were.
JANE EYRE
What's the use of five thousands pounds if you can't light a few fires at Christmas?
ST JOHN RIVERS
Twenty thousands.
JANE EYRE
St. John, I'll not hear another word. We've been over it again and again. Our uncle left a nephew and three nieces. We must all profit from his will equally.
ST JOHN RIVERS
Jane, you've never had money. You do not know what use you may put it to.
JANE EYRE
And you've never been without family. I will have a brother and sisters, and a home.
ST JOHN RIVERS
I'll be a brother to you, whether you share the money our uncle left you, you and only you, or not.
JANE EYRE
Leaving you with nothing, unable to realize your dreams and me with a fortune. I know enough about money to realize that will not make me happy
ST JOHN RIVERS
What of the future? If you should marry?
JANE EYRE
I'll never marry.
