The Others (2001) Poster


Fionnula Flanagan: Mrs. Mills



  • Mrs. Mills : Sometimes the world of the living gets mixed up with the world of the dead.

  • Mrs. Mills : Death of a loved one can lead people to do the strangest things.

  • Mrs. Mills : [Grace is firing at the servants]  Don't trouble yourself, ma'am. Tuberculosis finished us off, more than half a century ago.

  • Mrs. Mills : [to Anne, who is crying after being punished]  No crying now. No crying. Stop that. Here.

    [uses her apron to wipe away Anne's tears] 

    Mrs. Mills : Look what an awful face you've got when you cry.

    Anne : [crying]  I don't care!

    Mrs. Mills : There, there.

    [Anne finally calms down] 

    Mrs. Mills : You listen to me. I've seen them too.

    Anne : You have?

    [Mrs. Mills nods] 

    Anne : Why don't you tell my mother? Then maybe she'll believe me.

    Mrs. Mills : There are things your mother doesn't want to hear. She only believes in what she was taught. But don't worry. Sooner or later... she'll see them. And everything will be different.

    Anne : How?

    Mrs. Mills : You'll see. There are going to be some big surprises. There are going to be... changes.

    Anne : [confused]  Changes?

  • Mrs. Mills : Sooner or later, they will find you.

  • Grace : If you're dead, then leave us in peace. Leave us in peace!

    Mrs. Mills : And suppose we do leave you, ma'am, do you suppose that They will?

    Grace : Who?

    Mrs. Mills : The intruders.

  • Mrs. Mills : The intruders are leaving, but others will come. Sometimes we'll sense them. Other times, we won't.

  • Grace : So you say you know this house well?

    Mrs. Mills : Like the back of my hand, that is assuming the walls haven't sprouted legs and moved in the meantime.

    Grace : The only thing that moves here is the light, but it changes everything.

  • Mrs. Mills : Shall I make us a nice cup of tea, Ma'am ?

  • Grace : Whoever took the curtains wants to kill my children.

    Mrs. Mills : Now, why do you think the daylight would kill them?

    Grace : Are you mad? I already told you my children are photosensitive. THE LIGHT WILL KILL THEM!

    Mrs. Mills : Yes, but that was before. The condition could have cleared up.

  • Grace : My husband went to war and did not come back. Who will do the cooking?

    Mrs. Mills : I'm sorry, miss.

    Grace : Who will do the cooking?

  • Grace : [regarding Lydia]  Was she born like that?

    Mrs. Mills : Beg your pardon, ma'am?

    Grace : The girl. Was she born a mute?

    Mrs. Mills : No.

    [looks uncomfortable] 

    Mrs. Mills : I think I've finished here, ma'am. If you'll excuse me, I think I'll go and see if Mr. Tuttle needs a hand.
