* MosesInTheBullrushes: Heathcliff is discovered by the Earnshaws as a homeless youth and comforted as a child by Nelly telling him he is a lost prince. In hindsight, this might not have been such a good idea.

** From the 2009 version:
-->'''Heathcliff''': What are you two doing in here?!
-->'''Catherine(II)''': I wanted to feel close to what is left of my family. I'm the only person to blame, Hareton stayed with me at my insistence.
-->'''Heathcliff'''(speaking to Hareton): And who the ''devil'' gave you the leave to set one foot in HERE?! And WHO ordered you to obey her?
-->'''Catherine (II)''': You shouldn't grudge me one room when you have taken everything from me!
-->'''Heathcliff'''(practically hissing): You insolent slut! You never had anything.
-->'''Catherine (II)'''(glaring up at Heathcliff): If you strike me, Hareton will strike you!
-->'''Heathcliff''': And if Hareton doesn't turn you out of this room, I will strike him back to Hell!
-->(at this point, Hareton puts himself between Catherine (II) and Heathcliff)
-->'''Heathcliff'''(after glancing at Catherine's portrait): Take her, Hareton. Take her and leave me. All of you leave me now.

''Wuthering Heights'' (1847) was the only novel written by Creator/EmilyBronte (of 'the Brontë sisters'), and an archetypal example of a Gothic Romance. Has been filmed several times, most notably the 1939 version starring LaurenceOlivier as Heathcliff, while a younger, pre-''Film/JamesBond'' Creator/TimothyDalton played Heathcliff in the 1970 film version. Also inspired the 1979 KateBush song of the same name ("Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home...") as well as an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqiUGjghlzU adaptation]] in ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', Music/{{Genesis}}' album ''Wind and Wuthering'', which used a quotation from the book's ending for two of its song titles, {{MTV}}'s adaptation of their own with Heathcliff as a guitar-strumming song-writer pitted against classic cello-playing Edgar. And finally, let's not forget Music/DeathCabForCutie's "Cath...", which is fairly transparently based on ''Wuthering Heights'', but in their own style.
