Movie Quote of the Day – Matilda (Danny DeVito,1996)

Matilda: Why don’t you run away?

Jenny: I’ve often thought about it, but… I can’t abandon my children. And if I couldn’t teach, I’d have nothing at all.

Matilda: You’re very brave, Miss Honey.

Jenny: Not as brave as you.

Matilda: I thought grown-ups weren’t afraid of anything.

Jenny: Quite the contrary. All grown-ups get scared, just like children.

Matilda: I wonder what Miss Trunchbull is afraid of.
