(tense music) (bell ringing) (coughing) (children chattering) - It's so cold. - Are you new? (coughing) - When is breakfast? - Not for two hours. Are you hungry? You'll be hungry after breakfast, too. - [Jane] Yes. (water splashing) - Burns, you're disgusting. You did not wash your neck. Take the brush and scrub it. Scrub it. Perhaps you won't smell quite so much today, Burns. - Once again, it is my duty to remind you that we are not here to pamper you. You are here because God, in His wisdom, has chosen to make you orphans, and dependent on the charity of others. "If ye suffer hunger or thirst for my sake, happy are ye." Who here is hungry? Who here is thirsty? Oh, surely one of you is hungry. Surely there is one hungry child in the school. Ah, there is one. Step forth. Lets us see who it is. (tense music) Of course. This is the new girl, Jane Eyre. I know this child. She was sent here by her aunt, a benefactress of this school. Bring a stool, so that we may all see her. Come here, girl. Children, it is my duty to warn you against this girl. Her name is Jane Eyre. Shun her. Guard yourselves against her. For I had it from her aunt, who took her in, that she is deceitful and refuses to submit. Look at her face. Does it not show? Fortunately, it's a plain face. Otherwise, who knows what winning ways she would employ against the world. It's our duty to punish her body to save her soul, and make sure that at Lowood, she learns her place. (coughing) (wind rustling) (bell ringing) - [Girls] We have learned in faith and are made by your sheep. We have learned too much and (speaking over each other) in our own hearts. We are ready to be finally yours. (speaking over each other) - [Girl] Help me, please! (screaming) - Please, let me in. Please. I'm cold. Please. - Jane, I'm all right. - Burns? Pushing your way in as usual, Burns? For your pains, you will sit in the corridor. (coughing) - And you, Jane Eyre, may remove that look from your face. (Helen coughing) - [Jane] Helen? - Jane, go to sleep. It's late. - I can't sleep. Are you ill? - No. It's a little cough. I've always had it. - I hate it here. Why is she so cruel to you? - Miss Scatcherd? Oh, she dislikes me. - I hate her. - No. You mustn't hate, Jane. - I do. I hate her more than Mrs. Reed. - Who is she? - My Aunt, who sent me here. (Helen coughing) (dramatic music) Why did my parents have to die? Why? - [Girls] Lannister, York, Tudor, Stewart, and Hannover. - [Teacher] Good, continue. - [Girls] Norman, Plantagenet, Lancaster, Norman. (girls speaking over each other) (speaking in foreign language) - [Girls] William I, William II, Henry I, Stephen. - [Woman] Then the evangelist-- - [Girls] William I, William II, Henry I, Stephen. - [Teacher] Read it once more. - [Girls] William I, William II, Henry I, Stephen. - Miss Temple, what child is this? - [Temple] Jane Eyre, Mr. Brocklehurst. - And why, in defiance of every precept and principle of this house, does her hair wave? - It waves naturally, Mr. Brocklehurst. - Come here, Jane Eyre. (speaking in foreign language) - [Teacher] Continue, please. - We are not concerned with nature, here. Scissors, Miss Temple. - No, please. Don't cut my hair! - Scissors. - Oh, no! - You see, Miss Temple, where overindulgence-- - No! Please. My hair! - Away with her. It is our duty to mortify in these girls the lusts of the flesh. Take these relics of Satan and see they are burned. - Eyre, you will stand on a stool for half an hour and meditate on the virtues of submission. No one will speak to you for the rest of the day. - Come, Jane. - And for disobeying my orders, Burns, you may stand on a stool, yourself. (dramatic music) No, Burns. You may stand on yours outside. Did I tell you? (bell ringing) (clock ticking) (Helen coughing) (thunder roaring) (Helen coughing) (thunder roaring) (Helen coughing) - The girl is dying rapidly. You know that, of course. - Yes. I've made arrangements for her to go home. - Oh, good. Yes, good. - Helen? Are you awake? - Is it you, Jane? It's past midnight. - I couldn't sleep. I could hear you coughing. I had to come see you. - You came to bid me goodbye, then? - Are you going away? - Yes. They are sending me home to my guardian. (coughs) I'm so pleased you're here. Come in, come in, it's cold. - Oh, Helen, don't stay away long. Come back soon. - I shall. You'll see. When the fall weather comes, and the heather is in bloom on the moors, I'll be back. We shall have long talks again, you and I, just as we used to, long talks. Oh, Jane, I'm so tired. So tired. Stay with me, and be here when I come back.
