Meggie: You’ve come back.
Ralph: Darling Meggie, don’t cry. The world hasn’t come to an end because of a fire… no matter how terrible it was. You’re safe. That’s all that matters. I was so worried. Harry Gough called me and I flew right out. Imagine…
Meggie: Then you don’t know. Father, Daddy, and Stuie… they’re dead!
Ralph: No. Meggie.
Meggie: Daddy died in the fire, and Stuie found him. And then, there was a wild boar… and it killed my Stuie.
Ralph: Oh, Meggie. Meggie.
