Your son is arrived from London.
- Father ...
- John ...
You will see in my will the estate
of Norland was left to me in a way -
between my two families.
Norland, in its entirety,
And I am happy for you and Fanny.
But your stepmother, my wife and
daughters are left only 500 a year.
Barely enough to live on.
Nothing for the girls' dowries.
- You must help them.
- Of course.
You must promise to do this.
I promise, Father.
Help them? What do you mean?
I mean to give them 3,000. The
interest will be an extra income.
- The gift will fulfil my promise.
- Without question. More than amply.
One had rather. on such occasions.
do too much than too little.
Of course, he did not stipulate
a particular sum.
What do you say to 1,500, then?

- What can you afford?
better than losing 1,500 at once.

discharge my promise, you're right.
I'm convinced that your father
had no idea of giving them money.
- They will have 500 a year.
- What more could they want for?
No housekeeping, carriage, horses,
They will be much more able
to give you something.
can you play something else?
Mamma has been weeping
A visitor in my own home!
It is not to be borne. Elinor.
- Mamma, we have nowhere to go.
- John and Fanny will be here soon.
Do you expect me to be here
to welcome them? Vultures!
for a new house at once.
Until then, we must try
to bear their coming.
Margaret, are you there? Come down,
John and Fanny will be here soon.
Why are they to live at Norland?
They have a house in London.
Houses go from father to son, not
father to daughter. It is the law.
- Come, we'll play with your atlas.
- It's not mine. it's their atlas.
Do sit down.
We are looking for a new home, and
to have to leave you all.
But we are certain you will find the
new Mrs. Dashwood a fair mistress.
My only real concern is how long
it will take them to move out.
- How is Mrs. Ferrars?
- She is always in good health.
My brother is with her this season.
Quite the most popular bachelor.
He has his own barouche.
- You have two brothers?
- Yes. Edward is the elder.
He's travelling up from Plymouth
- If that is agreeable to you.
- Dear John ...
This is your home now.
- What does Fanny want with it?
One can presume she wants
to count it. What are you doing?
Gifts for the servants. Where is
Margaret? She's taken to hiding.
- You've not said a word to her.
I've said yes and no.
Good morning, Fanny.
Good morning, Miss Marianne.
How did you find the silver?
Was it all genuine?
- When may we expect your brother?
- Edward is due tomorrow.
He will not stay long. Will Margaret
give up her room for him?
The view is incomparable, and I
want him to see Norland at its best.
Miss Dashwood. Miss Marianne.
My brother, Edward Ferrars.
Do sit down.
Where is Miss Margaret? I'm
beginning to doubt of her existence.
Forgive us, Mr. Ferrars. My youngest
is shy of strangers at present.
I am shy of strangers myself,
