King Henry: My God, I've missed the way you mix garlic with arsenic.
King Henry: Ahh Kenna. With death comes wisdom. What did I ever see in her?
Queen Catherine: Well it was her ass. You mentioned it many times.
Lady Kenna: Are you talking to me?
Queen Catherine: ...Why would I talk to you?
Lady Kenna: You just said something about my ass.
Queen Catherine: Not everything is about your ass Kenna.
Queen Mary: I apologies for dropping in unannounced.
King Antoine: Nonsense, you were just announced.
Lady Greer: Good heavens. What if the King chooses me to be paired with someone. We should leave.
Leith Bayard: Yes, uh. One of us should leave…The married one.
Lady Greer: ...Good night then. (hand Leith her cup)
Louis Condé: Why don’t I have a normal family?
Louis Condé: Mary has no romantic feelings for me.
King Antoine: What, you’ve never changed a woman’s mind before?
Lady Atley: I was surprised. That he knew of my attraction to you.
Louis Condé: Oh you are very polite-
Queen Mary: How do we know what’s normal? All I have to go on is Catherine. If there are any other noble woman who have been... Well they’re keeping it to themselves. As am I. All of us, alone.
Lady Greer: You will recover fully, because you're strong.
Queen Mary: I feel like I’m sleeping walking & I can’t wake up.
Lady Greer: If your heart want to sleep, let it. Many things can be forced out of duty. But not the heart.
Princess Claude: What do you know, you're only a child my father lost his taste for, and pawned off onto his bastard son.
Queen Mary: None of us are responsible for our hearts, only our actions.
King Francis: All he needed was his father’s arms.
Lady Lola: Or the poor thing exhausted himself.
King Francis: I like my story better.
Queen Catherine: I suppose there are other monsters in the world, & there mothers have to lie for them too.
Queen Mary: What we once had was so natural. I miss how easy it was. We'd make love and fall asleep in each other's arms like branches growing together. We didn't have to think about anything and now it's so complicated. I don't know if I'm ready.
