Orphan Black: Siobhan Sadler & Sarah Manning 

They’ve always had a very difficult relationship, but I think that they’re very alike. That’s one of the things that’s always been very difficult between them. Mothers and daughters often have a particularly difficult time, anyway, certainly as their daughter is coming into her own power as a woman. There often is a lot of friction. I personally only have sons, so it’s quite a different thing, but I know from my friends who have daughters and for my goddaughters, the dynamic can be very fractious — particularly if they’re alike. And I think that’s one of the things about them, that Sarah is really like Mrs. S. She’s a rebel. She’s absolutely stubborn as stubborn is or stubborn can be, so they’re just constantly like that anyway. If there were no other drama going on, there would be that constant butting of heads.” - Maria Doyle Kennedy

Humphrey Bogart was buried with a small, gold whistle once part of a charm bracelet he had given to Lauren Bacall before they married. It was inscribed with a quote from their first movie together: “If you want anything, just whistle.”

"The whole manner of Hepburn versus the relatively down-to-earth manner of Tracy and yet you sensed almost from the beginning that they would somehow get together, because of this contrast, because of the fact that there was something in each of them that saw something in the other and it developed. And sometimes it developed in odd ways, which is part of the charm and part of the fun."

“While we’re looking at people, let’s look at Betty. She and Bogie seemed to have the most enormous opinion of each other’s charms, and when they fought it was with the utter confidence of two cats locked deliciously in the same cage.” —Katharine Hepburn

"They´re both very cool, they´re very sophisticated, they´re very low key about it, they have a lot of wit, a lot of charm. But he is the master of the double entendre. He is the master of clever line delivery, that seems to be tossed casually over his shoulder. No one can handle him on screen - except Myrna Loy and puncture his balloon."

Jeanine Basinger, film historian

"The sparring is great to do," says Wilton. "It’s great because Julian writes very wittily for us both which is lovely and the relationship has grown as they’ve become more dependent on one another… they basically are extremely fond of one another and actually they need each other too."

— Penelope Wilton on her character’s relationships with the Dowager, Violet Crawley.

- You only want to use me.

No, that’s not true. You saved my life, you’re my sister.
