"You're the most contemptible person I've ever met in all my life!" - Iris (Margaret Lockwood)

"Confidentially, I think you're a bit of a stinker too." - Gilbert (Michael Redgrave)

By the end of The Lady Vanishes, they are, of course, engaged.

Dave and Maddie,
I blame you—
You're the ones who taught me
That those who seem to hate me the most
Must be the ones most in love with me.
You made slamming doors a sound of love,
The conclusion of A Doll's House just a
Commercial break before the big love scene,
When Nora and Torvald must, like you two,
End up making out in a dimly-lit room.

Then, of course, your whole series,
And sometimes career,
is over.
