Period Drama Caption Contest!

This past week I re-pinned a Bleak House screencap onto my Charles Dickens board on Pinterest and Miss Elizabeth Bennet commented on the photo mentioning that it would make a great photo to use in a Caption Contest. So the idea to use this photo wasn't originally mine but Miss Elizabeth gave her consent since she's a bit busy right now with her Villains Tournament.

Rules: Look at the screencap below and think up an interesting caption. You may enter up to three captions by leaving a comment. All captions must be family friendly, in other words I will not accept captions containing foul language or questionable themes.
On Thursday (February 28th) I'll put up a poll for ya'll to vote for your favorite captions. The winner with be announced next Saturday (March 2nd).
Captions can be something like a quote, lyrics from a song, something Mr. Tulkinghorn is thinking / saying or something someone else is saying to him. Go as silly or as serious as you wish! And it doesn't really matter if you've seen Bleak House or not, just have fun! :)

Need A Captions For This:

Can't wait to see what ya'll come up with!

P.S. You simple must check out Miss Elizabeth's Villain Tournament featuring all the worst villains for our favorite period dramas! Round 1 will start February 27th!!!
