All that work and what I did on the house gone!
All these years, I've wanted to get away.
An enigma wrapped in a quandary a cryptic conundrum secretly scrawled
Anatomical analysis physical tests, blood work.
And do I get a thank you?
And I know where you can find a whole load more of them.
And I thought I could keep up the repayments.
And keep her safe, I was told, and I get the coin! I kept her safe!
And risked his life to do it too.
And soon they all will be.
And they're laughing at us. But I'll have the last laugh.
And we'd have been taken too! Come back.
And yet, the very notion
And you end up forgetting about what's really important.
And you wonder why your father kept you under the floorboards.
And you've been getting them every night!

Be quiet, Jennifer!
Beans are coming! What? No, they're not.
Beans.
Because Arrietty's just about to save us. What?!
Because Homo sapiens redactus lives amongst us! You Philistines!
Because I want that coin. And I need to keep you safe to get it.
Because you took...sorry, 'borrowed', the other things.
Been more careful. I wouldn't have been seen.

But I think your mother's right, and I think I should drive now.
But I'm glad you're here.
But I've only just found you.
But now, we really need to get out of here.
But there is something else you could do to get my gran's attention.
But this is your favourite game.
But you should be proud,
But you're my idiot,
By keeping me under the floorboards? You're still young.
By the way, I was wondering, is there a Mr Driver?
Calling us names like that!
Can I have a closer look?
Can we do it again?
Can you get us back home to my old home, I mean?
Can you give me a hand?

Do you want some rat? It's good.
Does this mean I get to dissect the little skebangas?
Don't be silly, Etty, your dad's far too clever to get mixed up with those creatures.
Don't be. Take her, Spiller.
Don't call him that.
Don't come running to me because these people are watching us.
Don't hurt them! Vermin!
Don't just jump out of the way!
Don't know how you mean.
Don't let them escape!
Don't look at me like that. I meant what I said. I still don't like you.
Don't think it's because I like you. I don't. So why did you come back, then?
Don't touch. They're wily little weasels.
Don't you say that!
Don't!
