- I was afraid this might happen.

- Will she be all right?

She's very weak, of course.

That's only to be expected.

- I shall want some more hot water.

- Yes, Doctor.

She's very weak, of course.

She's very weak, of course.

She's very weak, of course.

- She's very weak, of

course. Will she be all right?

Will she be all right?

Will she be all right?

The heir to this house is Lavinia.

So it's you again, Miss Fuller.

So it's you again, Miss Fuller.

So it's you again, Miss Fuller.

So it's you again, Miss Fuller.

And you've lost another situation

with your independent ways.

Now listen to me.

This is the registry office,

it's not an orphanage.

So long as you come to me for help,

please remember I require

respectable females

who will do their duty in

whatever situation it pleases me

and providence to place them.

Now, here's a Mrs.

Winterbourne. Wants a companion.

16 a year, all found.

Go and see her.

And remember, as far as

this office is concerned,

you've had your last chance.

Really, Miss Fuller, you

make more noise than ever

just because I ask you to be quieter.

I do believe you are

purposely annoying me

because it tires my throat

to complain so often.

The doctor said it would be better

if I didn't have to talk so much.

You'd better give me my drops.

I should have had them ten minutes ago.

It's bad enough being helpless

without having to put up with

your inefficiency and bad temper.

Do you hear?

Can't you even answer

when I speak to you?

Violets, hm. How much did

you pay for those, may I ask?

A penny.

If you think you can squander the 16

a year I pay you on such fripperies,

I suppose that's your affair.

That's all for this

evening but don't sit idle.

All you girls take advantage

of a nice room to yourselves.

And if I should ring my bell,

please arrange to hear it.

Letter for you, Miss Fuller.

Came by the last post.

Thank you, Ellen.

I've been ringing this bell

for the last ten minutes.

I won't stand such neglect!

I might have been dying!

You know I can't get out of bed once

I'm banked up with hot water bottles.

And yet you most carefully left my copy of

Ministering Children where I can't reach it!

- Will you please get it for me?

- With pleasure, Mrs. Winterbourne.

Good gracious, girl,

what's come over you?

I'm leaving you, Mrs.

Winterbourne. Tomorrow.

Leaving me? B-But you can't do

that! After all I've done for you!

All you've done for me?

That's wonderful!

My dear Mrs. Winterbourne,

allow me to tell you something.

Ever since my father and

mother died six years ago,

I've been working night

and day for people like you.

Rich, selfish, pampered... Don't

interrupt! That's what you are!

Well, it's gone on long enough.

I'm 25 and I have a right...

a right, Mrs. Winterbourne, to

a very different life from this.

And now I have the chance.

And I'll stop at nothing

to make the most of it!

I am Miss Blanche Fuller.

Oh, Miss Fuller. Glad to see you, miss.

My uncle is expecting me.

Mr. Fury has gone to

the station to meet you.

- I should like to come in, please.

- Oh, I'm sorry, miss.

William. Get Miss Fuller's luggage.

Would you care to wait

in the drawing room, miss?

This way, please.

I'll tell Mr. Fury you're here

as soon as he returns, miss.

- It's easy to see who you are.

- Is it?

You're so exactly like the

portrait of your father.

I do hope we're going

to be good friends.

Do you think that likely?

Is there any reason why we should not?

Is there any reason why we should?

Well, really, this is a

strange sort of a welcome.

Expect me to meet you at

the door? With flowers?

No. But I expected a little politeness.

However, Cousin Laurence,

if that's how you feel,

I have no intention of

imposing my company on you.

Didn't you come with your uncle?

- No, we missed each other.

- Pity.

You won't have to wait long. I

think I can hear him coming now.

Good. I hope he's more

agreeable to meet than his son.

He isn't.

- Cousin Laurence! Here I am.

I'm sorry we missed you.

You are my cousin Blanche?

Yes. So you're Laurence!

Who did you think I was?

Here she is, Father! Safe and sound.

Ah, my dear Blanche, I regret that

we missed each other at the station.

Doubtless you were anxious to

get here as quickly as possible.

Yes, Uncle, I was.

Sit down.

Blanche, I have regretted that

your poor father's temperament

made it impossible for

the two families to meet.

But now you're welcome to Clare

Hall. Isn't that so, Laurence?

Glad to have her. Very.

And now that you're here, we must...

What is it, Thorn?

I've examined that gun of Mr. Laurence's.

The left trigger hammer is defective.

Very well, Thorn.

Will Miss... Fuller go out riding

with Mr. Laurence in the morning?

No, Thorn.

Good night, Mr. Fury.

Good night, Thorn.

I think we may find it a little

confusing for the servants

if you continue to

use the name of Fuller.

When we inherited this estate

from the widow of Adam Fury,

whose portrait you see there,

we took the family name.

I think it'd be advisable

for you to do the same.

- I take it you've no objections?

- None, if you wish it, Uncle.

Now doubtless you'd like

to be shown up to your room.

Dinner is at eight but if

you can be dressed by 7.30,

I shall be glad of your company

in the library for half an hour.

Yes, Uncle.

- Are you Louisa?

- Yes, miss.
