Henry: Where are your attendants?
Danielle: I... decided to give them the day off.
Henry: [incredulously] A day off? From what, life?
Danielle: Don't you ever tire of having people wait on you all the time?
Henry: Well, yes, but... they're servants, it's what they do.
Danielle: [coldly] Well, I wish I could dismiss mine as easily as you do yours. [she rises] I must be going.
Henry: [following her] You're angry with me!
Danielle: No.
Henry: Admit it!
Danielle: Well, yes, if you want to know.
Henry: Why?
Danielle: Because you are trying to bait me with your snobbery.
Henry: I fear, mademoiselle, that you are a walking contradiction, and I find that rather fascinating.
Danielle: Me?
Henry: Yes, you. You spout the ideals of a Utopian society and yet you live the life of a courtier!
Danielle: And you own all the land there is and yet you take no pride in working it! Is that not also a contradiction?
Henry: Hmm, first I am arrogant, and now I have no pride; however do I manage that?
Danielle: You have everything, and still the world holds no joy; and yet you insist on making fun of those who would see it for its possibilities.
