Your aunt is a very lucky woman, Angelica. She has two lives. She has the life she is leading, and also the books she is writing.

Vanessa Bell

Don't worry, honey. Everything's fine. We're going to have a wonderful party. We've made Daddy such a nice cake.

Laura Brown

I can't think of anything more exhilarating than a trip to London.

Virginia Woolf

Baby. Baby, you have to be brave now.

Laura Brown

Richard Brown: Who is this party for?
Clarissa Vaughan: What are you asking, what are you trying to say?
Richard Brown: I'm not trying to say anything. I think I'm staying alive just to satisfy you.

Kitty: Oh, you're reading a book?
Laura Brown: Yeah.
Kitty: What's this one about?
Laura Brown: Oh, it's about this woman who's incredibly - well, she's a hostess and she's incredibly confident and she's going to give a party. And, maybe because she's confident, everyone thinks she's fine... but she isn't.

Why do I always have to sit next to the exes? Is this some kind of a hint, sweetheart? Anyway, shouldn't the exes have a table of their own, where they can all ex together in ex-quisite agony?

Sally

Oh, Mrs. Dalloway... Always giving parties to cover the silence.

Richard Brown

Obviously, you... feel unworthy. Gives you feelings of unworthiness. You survive and they don't.

Laura Brown

Why is everything wrong?

Clarissa Vaughn

It's a terrible thing, to outlive your entire family.

Laura Brown

Angelica Bell: What happens when we die?
Virginia Woolf: What happens?
[pause]
Virginia Woolf: We return to the place that we came from.
Angelica Bell: I don't remember where I came from.
Virginia Woolf: Nor do I.
