Notable dialogue

Ken Barlow (to Irma Barlow): "You can only live for yourself. Because that's all you're capable of. Believe me, when you got married, I thought you were wrong for Dave. But it goes far deeper than that, now I know. You'd be wrong for anybody! If you have to spend the rest of your life alone, then that's the best way for you, it's the only way you know how! You've got two graves to prove it. That brands you Irma. That brands you for life!"
