Hi there!

Inspector gooles - "we are members of one body" "we are responsible for each other", "they will be taught in fire, blood, and anguish" - Stage, lighting changes from "pink and intimate" to "brighter and harder" once the inspector arrives - shows he's a powerful figure etc, "i don't play golf", "the girl's dead though" "if there's nothing else we have to share our guilt", "you used the power you had...to punish the girl"

Mr Birling - "unsinkable, absolutley unsinkable", "I cant accept any responsibility", "there's every excuse for what both your mother and I did", "i've got to cover this up as soon as I can", "Its one of the happiest nights of my life… your engagement to Shelia means a tremendous lot to me.”, “If you don’t come down sharply on some of these people, they’d soon be asking for the earth.”

Mrs Birling - "girls of that class", "go look for the father of that child, its his responsibility", "i did nothing i'm ashamed of", "she was giving herself ridiculous airs", "in the circumstances I think I was justified", "you're quite wrong to suppose I shall regret what I did"

Sheila - "look - mummy - isn't she a beauty", "i felt rotten about it at the time", "i'm not a child, don't forget. I have a right to know", "but these girls aren't cheap labour, they're people", stage directions - "a pretty girl in her twenties, very pleased with life and rather excited", "you must not try to build up a kind of wall between us and her"

Eric - "she was a good sport", "i was in that state where a chap easily turns nasty", "STAGE DIRECTION: half shy, half assertive", "why shouldn't they try for higher wages", "you're not the kind of father a chap could go to", "I was a bit squiffy"

Gerald: "i did not come into this suicide business", "alright. I knew her. Lets leave it at that", "you couldn't have don anything else", "what about this ring", "that girl...gave me a glance that was nothing more than a cry for help", "that sounds a bit fishy to me"

Also know that you do not have to remember each word of the quote, as long as the quote still makes sense. Whatever theme it may be, make sure to always use "we are members of one body" from inspector goole as this can really fit into any theme. If you want an analysis on the quote I can provide you with one! It is also ideal to have 3 quotes for each person as you can also link into different characters

If you are stuck on any of the quotes or want to ask something else feel free to do so, hope this helps lol
