Would you care to see my mother? Your mother? Yes please. Oh...
[after seeing pictures of Dr. Treves' family]
Would you care to see my mother?
Dr. Frederick Treves:
Your mother? Yes please.
[John pulls out a small portrait]
Oh but she's... Mr. Merrick, she's beautiful!
Oh, she had the face of an angel!
I must have been a great disappointment to her.
No, Mr. Merrick, no. No son as loving as you could ever be a disappointment.
If only I could find her, so she could see me with such lovely friends here now; perhaps she could love me as I am. I've tried so hard to be good.
[Mrs. Treves begins to cry]
Are your parents still alive?
Do you understand me?
Your father, your mother,
are they dead?
Freddie, what are you doing for...?
Oh, I'm dreadfully sorry.
I had no idea you had...
Freddie, Freddie, what the hell
have you got in there?
You'll know soon enough at the
meeting of the Society.
Until then, I beg of you,
not a word to anyone, please.
All right, if you insist.
But you must have quite a find in there.
- I don't know what I've got.
- "Nothing of any importance", eh?
Not a word, please, Fox.
Not a word.
It's all right.
