You should have married old Lowther, you really should. I'm 43 years old, Jean. Now, how old are you?
I'm... I'm in my prime!
Your "prime". LOOK at yourself, Jean! Look at me: a second-rate painter running to seed. You're NOT in your prime, Jean, you're a frustrated spinster taking it out in idiot causes and dangerous ideas. A schoolmarm!
I am a teacher!
A teacher or a leader? The dangerous Miss Brodie and her troops. Well, where you lead I cannot follow.
a conservative school.
We do not encourage

of information into a pupil's head.
To discuss education with such
a dedicated teacher...
is always instructive.
However, it was not for that reason
I asked you to come here.
I am told that you make
weekly expeditions to Cramond.
Yes. Isn't it
a lovely spot?
It is, indeed.
I believe Mr. Lowther inherited
the estate from his mother.
