Gilbert Blythe: Anne Shirley. What in heck are you doing here?

Anne Shirley: [trying to sound dignified as she clings to a post in the lake] Fishing, for lake trout.

Gilbert Blythe: Fishing for lake trout?

ANNE: Well, if you must know, I was in Diana’s skiff but it sprang a leak and I had to climb onto the piling or sink. Now, if you’d be so kind as to row me to the landing.

GILBERT: Ah, I see. Well, then the fact is I rescued you.

ANNE: Help was on the way and I was calmly waiting for it.

GILBERT: You’re most welcome.

ANNE: I am grateful for your assistance, Mr. Blythe, even though it was not required. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to find my friends. They are likely overcome with fear for my life.
