Anne Shirley, I've heard all about it. Now you open your door at once!
Anne Shirley: Please go away, Marilla. I'm in the depths of despair.
Marilla Cuthbert: Oh, fiddlesticks. Now, you open this door at once! Are you sick?
Anne Shirley: Go away. Don't look at me.
Marilla Cuthbert: Oh, don't play innocent with me...
In the scene of Anne Shirley, rehearsing "The Lily Maid", as she was going across the river in John Barry's boat and after it began to sink, Anne Shirley quickly grabbed onto the wooden bridge post, beside the sinking boat. As she grabbed onto the bridge post, her legs at-first were dangling. The next second, Anne Shirley's knees were sturdy and she did not lose grip. A step was put there, underwater, for her 3-minute survival before Gilbert Blythe came rowing across, asking her what she was doing, as she answered back, "Fishing, for lake trout".
