Obsession is spending a half-hour googling because DAMMIT YOU KNOW THAT LINE IN THE NOVEL IS AN ALLUSION TO JANE EYRE.
But there’s one massive original novel and like six film adaptations.

(But now I’m pretty sure it was an allusion to a conversation in the 1997 film)
(… I refused to give up until I found it.)
