This part of the script was deviated from somewhat or downplayed in the film:

MICHAEL
I won't let you leave! Christ, do
you think I'm going to let you leave.

KAY
(meekly)
Michael.

MICHAEL
No, I don't want to hear anything.
There are things between men and
women that will not change; things
that have been the same for
thousands of years. You are my
wife, and they are my children...
and I love you and I will not let
you leave, because you are MINE!

KAY
Oh, I do feel things for you,
Michael; but now, I think it's pity.
For the first time since I've known
you, you seem so helpless. You
held me a prisoner once; will you
try again?

MICHAEL
If that's what it takes; then yes,
I will.

KAY
At this moment, I feel no love for
you at all. I never thought that
could happen, but it has.

MICHAEL
We'll go back tonight. Bring the
children.

KAY
You haven't heard me.

He moves to her; he does love her, and is tender with her.

MICHAEL
How can I let you leave; how can I
let you take my children away?
Don't you know me? You understand,
it's an impossibility. I would
never let it happen; no, never, not
if it took all my strength, all my
cunning. But in time, soon, you'll
feel differently. You see, you'll
be happy that I stopped you. I
know you. You'll forget about
this; you'll forget about the baby
we lost... and we'll go on, you and
I.
