Mary Stuart: Oh, you enjoyed it.
Lord Darnley: I did!
Leith Bayard: Pay me what I ask. And their future is secure.
Lord Narcisse: Look how far you’ve come. Trading your heart to rise in station. I’ll draw up the papers.

Leith Bayard: I feel a poison in my heart. How long until I give into it?
Leith Bayard: We never got to see that vineyard in Tuscany.
Princess Claude: What if we met there? A year from tonight. Leith, in a year, everything will be different. I'll have an heir, I-I'll never have to be with Luc again.
Leith Bayard: Claude...
Princess Claude: I won’t fall in love with him. I promise!! Please have faith in me.
Leith Bayard: I'll try.
Lord Darnley: I’m going to be your husband.
Mary Stuart: I had a husband! and I loved him and he was murdered in cold blood before my eyes.
Lord Darnley: Before I met you, I loved someone. In that way that should've lasted a lifetime, but it didn't. And when I lost her I thought I'd never feel again, and yet here I am. Here we are.As king and queen, our lives will always be in peril.
