I just bought the lease of those cottages only this morning.
And I must warn you,
I do not relent in exacting my due from anyone.
Happen I were... I was just...
I was just taking advantage of the fact that Mr Hindley were taken in drink, sir.
Keep it. Keep it.
You may lie to Mr Hindley till he goes to hell.
But you do not lie to me, do you understand?
My cards, are they not?
Did you ever play Trinidad All-Fours, sir?
Now there is a game for cut-throats.
I'm afraid the day... the celebrations...
I am a little feverish.
Of course. Of course.
Inconsiderate of me. Um...
You sleep here. I will have Nelly make up a bed in my old room.
You are very kind.
Gave her the message you sent, sir.
Good lad. Good lad.
And now, with as began to bet?
20 shillings, sir.
Well, take your six. What about you, boy ...
The rest is for you.
- How, sir? - Eight pounds, take it.
Come with me, I'll take you home safe, with that fortune.
Take his coat.
Will resolve this outside. Gentlemen.
So the devil sent back to us, was it?
Still alive, Joseph?
And stay strong and all.
Maybe God is keeping the Earth
because his company would find so annoying in the heaven.
His blasphemy not affect me.
It's your soul that you is condemning.
My soul is already convicted, Joseph.
You can be sure of that.
You do not know me, Nelly?
I'm not a stranger!
Is it really you, is it?
Are they at home? Where is she? Is she here?
Yes, Nelly, what is it?
A person from Gimmerton wishes to see you, ma'am.
When I read your note I thought I would never see you again.
Why didn't you believe that I would return?
Not angry, my love.
I shall think it a dream tomorrow!
I'll not be able to believe that I have seen and touched
and spoken to you once more.
When can we be alone?
The Master would like you to bring your guest in, Madam.
He thinks it unseemly for you to be standing out here with a gentleman.
Heathcliff's come back!
Well, well, don't strangle me for that!
I know you didn't like him. Yet for my sake, you must be friends now!
Cathy, try to be glad, without being absurd!
The whole household need not witness the sight of
your welcoming a runaway servant as a brother!
Look who I discovered in the hall.
Has Mr Heathcliff not changed beyond all recognition, Edgar?
Not entirely. No.
Sit down, sir.
Mrs Linton, recalling old times, would have me give you a cordial reception,
and, of course, I am gratified when anything occurs to please my wife.
Your wife. Oh, yes.
I heard you married only yesterday.
A pity you did not come sooner, Mr Heathcliff,
you could have made merry at the celebrations.
I am not much of a one for making merry, Miss Isabella.
Too busy making your fortune, no doubt.
And what would make you think I have made a fortune?
I can see by your bearing and your dress
that you have not spent your time away from us trading horses and reading fortunes
as some might think.
That much is true.
So, are we to learn how you have made your money, Mr Heathcliff?
The same way as any man. By taking advantage of other men's weaknesses.
You must forgive Heathcliff, Mr Linton.
He always liked to provoke.
Cathy, unless we are to have cold tea, I am thirsty
and Mr Heathcliff will have a long walk,
wherever he may lodge tonight.
Not so far, really. I am staying at the Heights.
Hindley invited me this morning when I called.
Hindley invited you! Really?
Yes, I called to enquire about Miss Earnshaw.
Sorry, I mean Mrs Linton.
Have you no fear of the consequences of fixing your dwelling with your ancient persecutor?
I think my strong head will keep me from danger.
And your brother can hardly be made morally worse than he is already now, can he?
I always imagined you might end up marrying Hindley, Miss Isabella.
I think not. Not nearly handsome enough.
Well, as I'm sure Cathy will tell you,
the female heart can feel a sudden and irresistible attraction
towards the most unlikely of men.
Wouldn't you agree,
I know what my own heart tells me and
that is all any man needs to know as far as I can tell.
Well, it seems we have all grown wiser in the years of my absence.
I hope that is true.
So how has married life been treating you this past month?
Where is he?
Out on the moors
Inspecting some land I have for sale.
He imagines he outflanks me.
He will destroy you.
He pays me good rent.
For living here?
For sleeping in your old room.
Why did you not come sooner? I have waited weeks to see you!
I am a married woman.
Every movement is monitored and remarked upon.
You have made yourself a pretty prison, have you not, by being too impatient to marry.
You gave me not a word.
In three years, not one indication whether you were alive or dead.
When I heard that you were to marry I had one thought in my head.
I would return, have one glimpse of your face, settle my score with Hindley
then prevent the law by executing myself. Now I see I should have stuck to my guns.
You knew when I was to marry, and you did not return in time to stop me from taking such a step?
You had already betrayed me with your heart.
So you returned on my wedding day to punish me?
- What is that? - What?
There is a look in your eyes.
My God! I think it is guilt.
You have been with him, haven't you?
- You have laid with Edgar, haven't you? - He is my husband.
You think your pretend marriage matters to me?
How am I to look at you? How am I to touch you
knowing that his milky feeble hands have held you as I am holding you?
- You disgust me! - I'm sorry.
I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
What have I done?
What have I done?
How about a game of three's up? Hm?
You call it, you win it all back.
- Every penny. - And what if I should call wrong?
I'd take you to the yard, strip you of your shirt and flog you,
just as you flogged me.
Mr Heathcliff, I think it's nearly daylight out there. We'd probably best be going.
Now, now, Saul.
I bring you Hindley night in, night out,
plump with cash, ripe for the plucking.
I think it's only good manners that you stay until Hindley's fate is decided.
What do you say, Hindley?
My cash against the skin on your back.
Then my blood?
behind the stable door you will find a whip.
Oil each tail so they don't snag in his open wounds.
I think perhaps you've humiliated him enough, Mr Heathcliff.
I cannot feel any satisfaction for the humiliation
I have heaped upon him so far.
And the more revenge I get, the greater my appetite for it.
The lad, sir. Think about Hareton.
You are a good man, Saul.
A good man.
I could have been a good man once but then I met Hindley.
One day I must sit you down and you can tell me how to be good.
thank you for a diverting evening.
See yourselves out.
Are you well, my love?
Just a little tired.
Perhaps now the weather grows finer, we will see some more of Mr Heathcliff.
I think Mr Heathcliff has satisfied his curiosity
and from now on we shall see very little of him.
That is a shame.
Because I liked him and I desired his company.
Surely you do not covet the admiration of Heathcliff?
I hope I misunderstood you.
You've not misunderstood me.
You can't consider him an agreeable person.
You are a dog in the manger, Cathy,
and desire no-one to be loved but yourself! That is enough!
You shall not talk to my wife like that again, Isabella. And you shall apologise!
I am sorry, sister.
I knew you would come in the end!
Is Miss Isabella at home?
Is she home?
I like her too well to let you absolutely seize and devour her up.
- Besides, I would not approve. - You would not approve?
You, who have treated me infernally? Infernally. Do you hear!
And if you flatter yourself that I don't perceive it, you are a fool.
Darling, do not speak like this.
If you think I can be consoled by sweet words you are an idiot.
So I will ask you again,
is Miss Isabella at home?
I am proud to show you at last somebody who dotes on you more than myself.
Sister, dear, I really don't think...
I am sure that my poor little sister in law is breaking her heart
by mere contemplation of your physical and moral beauty.
Cathy. This is most unfair!
Be kind enough to excuse me.
Cathy forgets that you and I are not intimate acquaintances
and what amuses her is painful to me beyond expression.
You had no reason to treat the poor girl in such a manner.
Do not fret.
I would as soon as put a canary in the park on a winter's day
than recommend she bestow her heart on you.
There would be a certain symmetry though, would there not?
In Isabella Linton and I becoming lovers.
Perhaps your fortune has changed you.
My fortune has changed me in every regard.
And if I could change that too I would do so.
What is this?
This is an agreement that Mr Heathcliff has first option
to purchase any more land and buildings you may wish to sell.
This is the balance of the account, sir.
Joseph! Saddle up Hunter.
Had I known I could ruin the man in the space of three months,
I would have come back sooner.
I thought I would never find this place.
That's why I told you to bring Cathy's horse.
She could find her way up here in the dark.
Is this the place where you bring all your sweethearts?
Only Cathy before you.
And is that how it is always going to be?
Cathy before me?
I saw a spirit in you last time I saw you at the Grange, Isabella,
that has stayed with me.
It is as though your brother has a woman's gentleness
and you have all the fight.
I cannot tell whether you are flattering me or not.
Everything you hear about me is bad.
Yet you see some good in me,
else why would you be here?
Perhaps I am attracted to the bad in you.
No. Do not make a joke of it.
A person who sees good in me is a sensation I experience so rarely
that it is enough to make me want to at least try to love you.
What are you about? Raising this stir?
I said you must let Isabella alone, I beg you.
Unless you are tired of being received here
and wish Edgar to draw the bolts against you!
God forbid he should try! God keep him meek and patient!
I love Heathcliff more than you have ever loved Edgar
and he might love me if you would let him!
I know he could never love a Linton!
And yet he's quite capable of marrying you to hurt me,
he has as good as told me!
I don't believe you.
I don't believe you!
What is it to you? I have a right to kiss her, if she chooses,
and you have no right to object.
I'm not your husband.
There is no need for you to be jealous.
If you like Isabella, you shall marry her.
But, do you like her, Heathcliff? Tell the truth.
You will not leave here until you answer me.
If I imagined you wished me to marry Isabella,
- I'd cut my throat! - Take her, if it pleases you!
You clearly prefer the bliss of inflicting misery to the bliss of our love!
This is insufferable!
It is disgraceful that you should own him for a friend
and force his company on me.
Is that how you call it, sir?
I have so far been forbearing with you, sir.
Your presence is a moral poison that would contaminate the most virtuous.
For that cause, and to prevent worse consequences,
I shall deny you, hereafter, admission into this house.
Cathy, this lamb of yours threatens like a bull!
It is in danger of splitting its skull against my knuckles.
I require your instant departure, sir.
One minute's delay will render it involuntary and ignominious.
- No, I will not move until I hear an apology from you. - An apology?
After constant indulgence of both men,
I earn for thanks two samples of blinding gratitude!
Edgar, I was defending you and yours.
Cathy, please get out of my way.
- Apologise. - Get out of my way!
Make an apology or allow yourself to be beaten.
All I want is your happiness!
But I am, I must admit, utterly defeated in this.
Indeed I can only attribute your spite and venom and betrayal
to some unfathomable damage deep inside your heart.
To think anything else is to think so badly of you that I cannot bear it.
Well, I must compliment you on your taste, Cathy.
This is the slavering thing you would prefer to me!
Heathcliff! No! I beg you!
Remain where you are, Cathy.
I shall not stay. But I wish to learn whether after this day's events,
you intend to continue your intimacy...
Oh, for mercy's sake! Just let us hear no more of it!
To get rid of me - answer my question.
Will you give up Heathcliff hereafter or will you give up me?
It is impossible to be my friend and his at the same time
and I absolutely require to know which you choose.
- You cannot make me choose! - I demand it!
And if I choose to remain friends with him?
Then I shall ask you to leave this house.
May I speak?
To chastise me for my weakness? To mock me for my kindness?
If you hear me out and you still want me to leave,
then I shall relinquish any claim I have on you.
If you cast me out, you shall cast out both your wife and child. I am with child, Edgar.
I'm with child.
- I came to you. - So I see.
Though after your brother's threats and entreaties,
I had rather you didn't.
He has, after all, threatened my life.
Cathy is with child.
You are lying.
Has Edgar put you up to this?
any loyalty I feel in this is entirely to you.
That is why I have come here to tell you this.
Even though he warned me that if I was insane enough
to encourage what he calls my worthless suitor,
he will dissolve all bonds of relationship between him and me.
Yet, as you see, I am here.
Feed and water the horses then bed them down.
My bride and I shall be staying here for the night.
Could you...? My fastenings.
Don't look at me.
Don't look at me.
Isabella has gone. She has run off with Mr Heathcliff!
This is not true. It cannot be.
The lad who fetches the milk told me they were spotted two miles out of Gimmerton.
And I have checked her room and her bed is not slept in
so they have a day's start!
How will you catch up with them?
She went of her own accord. She had a right to go if she pleased.
No, master. She is bewitched!
Hereafter she is only my sister in name, not because I disown her,
but because she has disowned me.
And who shall tell the mistress of this turn of events?
Since Isabella is no longer a member of her family,
she needn't be troubled by news of her.
- You are deceiving me! - Shush, mistress.
I promised the Master I would not tell you.
I thought it might help you to accept your new life
- if you knew what Heathcliff - If I knew what?
That Heathcliff has betrayed me? That he has put a knife through my heart?
- Give over that talk! - Stop that! Miss Cathy.
Get off me!
Just stop that!
Please, my love.
It's all right, my love. It's all right.
You were dreaming.
Stay with me, Nelly.
If only I were in my own bed in the old house.
And that wind rattling against the lattice.
Do let me feel it.
It comes straight down the moor. Let me...
Let me have one breath!
When will Heathcliff return?
I do not know.
If he felt anything for you he would never return and let you be.
Now try and put him out of your mind.
I cannot, Nelly.
He will not let me.
Where are we going?
Although it may not appear to be the case,
I have tried over these past four months to make myself love you
but I cannot.
What is preventing such a thing from happening?
- I think you know. - Nevertheless,
I would like to hear you say her name.
Your eyes detestably resemble your brother's...
a dove's eyes, an angel's eyes.
So I cannot bear to look at them without wishing you ill.
I abandoned my elegancies, my comforts and my friends of my former home
to marry you.
You married me under a delusion.
Then you shall let me go home to the Grange, sir.
You shall go home
but not to the Grange. The Heights will be your home
and I will not have you disgracing me by rambling abroad.
I cannot allow that.
Surely in your heart you feel some pity.
I have no pity.
I have no pity.
Where are you? Damn you.
Is he come back then?
I thought he had gone for good.
We came just now.
But he left me and as I don't know where he is...
Be sure to lock your door.
I cannot resist going up there with this every night
and trying his door.
If once I find it open,
he's done for!
What is it?
I am tired after my journey.
I will show you to your room.
- My room? - I sleep in here.
What news is there of Cathy?
Mrs Linton has not been well.
She'll never be like she was, but her life is spared.
If you really have a regard for her, you'll shun crossing her way again.
I must exact from you a promise that you'll get me an interview with her.
I say you must not.
And you never shall through my means. She is too weak.
Consent or refuse, I will see her!
You know as well as I do
for every thought she spends on Edgar, she spends a thousand on me.
And if I thought it were otherwise, two words would comprehend my future...
death and hell.
Do not persist in this, sir,
or I shall be obliged to inform my master
and he shall take measures to secure his house.
- Who did you see today, Nelly? - No-one in particular.
Joseph at church, of course, outpraying the Bishop as usual.
You're lying to me, aren't you?
You have too much imagination and I have too little.
I cannot make sense of you some days.
I know he is back.
I can feel him close, so there is no use in trying to deceive me.
Why am I so changed?
Well, you eat so little and you will not drink and you've made yourself weak.
I wish I were outdoors.
I wish I were a girl again...
- half savage, hardy and free. - Come, come.
You are a young woman. You are going to bring a new young life into the world.
You are blessed, if only you could see it.
Open the window wide again.
I will not give you a death of cold.
I'm not helpless yet. I'll do it myself.
Come on, she was seen out there, sir.
I think she will have headed up to the crags, sir!
If we waste time going there and you are wrong...
It is where she went as a child. It was a favourite place for...
For both of them.
- Cathy! - I see no sign of she, sir.
Am I come home?
Yes, you are home. We are home.
And we will wander these moors for all eternity.
I thought you had forgotten me.
You know that I could as soon forget you
as my own existence.
And what of Edgar and...
There is no Edgar.
There is no Hindley.
There is just you and I.
Just you and I.
She is here.
Damn you. She is here!
The pneumonia has a grip on her lungs.
She has neither the constitution nor, it seems, the will to recover.
Hell, is that all you can say? Is there nothing you can do?
It'll be a miracle if I can keep her alive until she's gone full term.
I believe if the child is not born tonight, neither will survive.
Dear, sweet Edgar.
Why could you not love someone worthy of your affection
You know our child will be loved and cherished, do you not?
But not too tame.
Our child shall wander the moors and be free
as any child must with your blood running through their veins.
When I was a child,
my father went on a trip.
And he asked me and my sister what presents we would like.
I chose a fiddle.
And my sister, already a good rider,
asked for a new whip.
But when he returned he did not bring us what we had asked for,
he had brought you instead.
Cathy is dying.
And you grew and grew like a big fat cuckoo
and now look at you sitting there as if you are already master of the house.
Your sister is dying.
Cathy is dying.
You do not fool me, Heathcliff.
You wear your finer feelings like you wear those gentleman's clothes...
badly. You are nothing more than a gypsy ***
and so your love for Cathy can only be a pretend love.
Your grief for her, a pretence.
Don't you say her name.
Don't you say her name.
- Stop! - Don't you say her name!
Don't you say her name!
Don't you say her name!
- No! - Stop!
- You will kill him! - You will hang for it!
I long to die!
I would die a thousand deaths
if I knew she were waiting for me!
I am leaving now.
I think it fair that you let me leave unmolested.
- Be gone! - After all,
it is better to be hated by you than loved by you.
I see that now.
So I think I owe you a *** sort of gratitude
that you spared me your love and its murderous effects.
Be gone! Be gone!
Will you let me see Cathy or must I fight my way in?
She is weak.
- She is dying. - Then you know she would wish to see me.
Obey her dying wishes even if you no longer take heed of mine.
Sleep, my love, sleep. Sleep, my love!
Let me die in your arms.
Don't leave me.
Don't leave me.
Oh, Edgar! How sweet it feels to see you again.
I beg your forgiveness!
Forgiveness? I have nothing to forgive you.
- Then you are not angry? - I am not angry.
I am sorry to have lost you,
especially as I can never think you will be happy.
I am carrying his child, Edgar!
And I have nowhere and nothing!
Please. How can I make amends?
If you should really wish to oblige me,
then return to the villain you married and persuade him to leave the country.
Do not close your heart to me!
Do not close your heart!
The servants are returning from church. My master will not be far behind.
I cannot go.
I shall not go, I tell you. For heaven's sake! Just go for one hour.
I will come to you when the master leaves the house, please.
I promised her.
This will be the last time.
She begged me to stay!
What in God's name?
Unless you are a fiend, you will take her! You will take her and you will comfort her.
I shall not refuse to go out of doors.
But I will stay in the garden,
and mind you keep to your word, Nelly.
I shall be under the larch trees.
Nelly, send for Dr Kenneth. Now, send for him, woman!
Doctor, thank God.
Please come. Please.
Her breathing is shallow. I fear for our baby.
I didn't have to wait for you to learn that.
Stop snivelling before me.
Damn you all. She wants none of your tears.
Yes, she's dead.
Gone to heaven, I hope.
Oh, did she die like a saint?
You poor wretch.
Your pride cannot blind God.
How did she die?
She lay with a sweet smile on her face and her baby at her breast.
His *** lived, then.
Cathy's life closed in a gentle dream.
May she wake as kindly in the other world.
May she wake in torment!
I pray one prayer
I repeat it till my tongue stiffens...
Cathy Earnshaw, may you not rest,
not while I'm living.
You said I killed you.
Haunt me, then.
Be with me always.
Take any form. Drive me mad, but don't leave me
in the abyss, where I cannot find you.
I cannot live without my life.
I cannot live without my soul.
Being married will will not be such a bad thing, will it, Catherine?
I'm going to see my father.
This locket was your mother's.
I hope you'll be a dutiful daughter.
I defy you to frighten me!
Have you heard how your wife speaks to me, Linton?
If you cannot take her in hand perhaps I'll have to do so myself.
Linton loves me and for that reason I love him.
Mr Heathcliff, you have nobody to love you
and however miserable you make us,
we shall still have the revenge of thinking that
your cruelty rises from your greater misery!
- Is he still alive? - Yes.
Yes, my angel, he is!
Forgive me. Please forgive me.
There is nothing to forgive.
Tell me one thing, Catherine, and tell me the truth.
Do you love Linton?
Will he make you happy?
He will make me very happy, Father.
And Mr Heathcliff has said that we shall live here -
Linton and I together.
And we will fill the house with children and happiness.
Then I can go to her.
I have been very happy with my little Catherine.
Oh, I see. Playing the loyal servants to the last, are we?
Make haste and get my daughter's things together.
And don't oblige me to compel you.
Why not let Catherine continue here?
And send Master Linton to her.
I'm seeking another tenant for the Grange.
And I want my children about me, to be sure.
You are on my property.
Stand to one side, else I'll have the constable on you!
This is Green, my solicitor.
He will give each of you a notice to quit.
Put it down there.
It is cold up here.
Perhaps you should come down and sit by the fire for a few moments,
just while Linton sleeps.
I will stay up here.
I brought you a book.
Nelly said you might like it.
I thought you might be in need of distraction.
Catherine, come and sit by the fire, my love.
Just while Linton sleeps.
We'll listen out for him, won't we, Hareton?
Lapwing. Bonny bird,
it wheels over your head on the moor
I have been to my solicitor.
Linton has bequeathed me all his estate.
When he dies, you will be destitute.
You'll have no need of books!
If I am as poor as you say, then I have every need of books
to help me escape my miserable fate!
What a hideous tyrant.
And you sitting there like a dumb ox while he abuses me!
- What was I supposed to have done? - What was I supposed to have done?
Stand up to the fiend!
How would you like it if I abused your father?
He is not your father. Hindley was your father
and Heathcliff ruined him and drove him to an early grave.
Heathcliff showed me more love than my father.
Yes. So that he could trick you out of your rightful inheritance.
Don't speak of Heathcliff like that!
- I'd rather you would abuse me. - Very well.
I had thought your dumb state was down to your upbringing
but now I see it is the state you prefer,
much like a dog or a cart-horse! And if I ever needed proof,
it is your cowardice in not standing
- to that man! - You're a damned liar!
Why have I made him angry, by taking your part then?
A hundred times?
I shall have nothing to do with you and your mucky pride
and your damned mocking tricks!
I shall go to hell, body and soul,
before I look sideways at you again!
Is that true,
what Hareton said about taking my part?
He has taken beatings for you. That is true.
Why does he insist on defending Heathcliff?
Because he is attached to him by ties
stronger than reason can break
and it is cruel of you to try and loosen them.
Come in, Cathy.
Cathy, do come, please.
Please come in.
Oh, do once more.
Oh, my love.
Oh, my heart's darling,
I ask you once more.
Please end it.
End my agony!
Let me in! Let me in!
- Let me in. - Cathy.
Cathy, do come, my love.
Do come, my love.
- Do come. - Mr Heathcliff.
- You must come. - My lovo... I...
You must come.
my husband, your son,
- My son? - Linton.
Linton is dead.
Our Father who art in Heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on Earth as it is in Heaven.
And I am sorry for the things I said to you.
I did not mean it.
I was miserable and bitter at everybody
and I would like you to forgive me.
Is Catherine not here?
She is upstairs.
I picked some flowers from over at the Grange.
- Oh, did you? - Seemed a shame to waste them.
They were the last of the summer.
If he finds you in here, he will punish you.
He can't hurt me. I think even he knows that.
I thought we could be friends,
even though you'll be ashamed of me.
I will not be.
I think I would like a friend.
It is one of my mother's exercise books.
How she loved Heathcliff.
What are you two doing in here?
I wanted to feel close to what is left of my family.
I'm the only person to blame. Hareton stayed with me at my insistence.
And who the devil gave you leave to set one foot in here!
And who ordered you to obey her?
You shouldn't grudge me one room when you have taken everything from me!
You insolent ***!
You never had anything!
If you strike me, Hareton will strike you!
If Hareton does not turn you out of this room,
I will strike him back to hell!
take her. Take her and leave me.
All of you, leave me now!
She must learn to avoid putting me in a passion.
You once told me that love would only bring me grief and pain and suffering.
I have seen nothing in my life
to change that opinion otherwise.
You misled me,
not purposely I don't suppose but you were wrong.
If that is true,
then my whole life's endeavours have been wrong too.
Is that what you would have me believe?
I would have you believe whatever brings you peace.
Would that not be a poor conclusion?
An absurd termination to my violent exertions?
I feel for you in such a variety of ways.
In the first place, your startling likeness to Cathy
fearfully connected you with her. But then what is not connected with her to me?
And what does not recall her?
The entire world is a dreadful collection of memoranda
that she did exist and that I have lost her.
You have no...
- feeling of illness, have you? - No.
No, I have not.
I never felt stronger.
I think first you should kiss me for minding so well.
Five kisses if you read it through with no further blunders.
