"I didn’t think you and Gilbert Blythe were such good friends that you’d stand for half an hour at the gate talking to him," said Marilla with a dry smile.
"We haven’t been—we’ve been good enemies. But we have decided that it will be much more sensible to be good friends in the future. Were we really there half an hour? It seemed just a few minutes. But, you see, we have five years’ lost conversations to catch up with, Marilla."
— Anne of Green Gables, chapter 38
