Arrietty: We don't steal, we borrow.
 
James: So there ARE more of you?
 
Arrietty: What's that?
 
James: How about I show you?
 
Arrietty: So what exactly does this thing do...aaargh!
 
James: Arrietty, are you all right? Look, I'm so sorry. I had no idea you'd fly so...well.
 
Arrietty: Can we do it again?
 
James: That was the furthest yet!
 
Arrietty: What shall we do now? (Dawning) What's out there?
 
James: How about I show you?
 
Arrietty: I've tried to imagine what it looked like, the sky, the houses. It's amazing.
 
James: We call it Hackney.
 
Arrietty: Right, you must promise not to tell anyone.
 
James: I promise.
 
Arrietty: Who's that?
 
James: My mum. She died last year.
 
Arrietty: Sorry.
 
James: We don't talk about her in case it upsets me.
 
Arrietty: I'll see you soon. Well, go on. Don't just sit there gawping. Go.
 
 
 
James: See ya.
