Becky Sharp: Well, my father was an artist.
Miss Matilda Crawley: Ah, that's better, a starving one I hope.

Becky Sharp: Two men and two men only will enter my bedchamber. My husband and the doctor.

Becky Sharp: Revenge may be wicked, but it's perfectly natural.

Factual error: When Joseph Sedley presents Becky Sharp with the parrot, he says it is because she loves all things that come from India. The Blue and Gold Macaw, however, is native to South America. (The director's commentary makes it clear that she is aware of this. (She could hardly not be, coming from India.) It was a bit of "poetic license.")
