[to Henry] Ask her yourself! She is a grasping, devious little pretender, and it is my duty, Your Highness, to expose her as the covetous hoax she is.


[to Danielle] Bow before royalty, you insolent fraud!

[to Danielle] Stay aloft, madame, there are games afoot.

Tell no one we have spoken, for all shall reveal itself in due course.

I kneel before you not as a prince, but as a man in love... But I would feel like a king if you, Danielle de Barbarac, would be my wife.

[about Danielle] Marguerite, I don't believe you've met my wife.

Leonardo da Vinci: I shall leave walking on water with the Son of God. Fortunately, I tripped over an angel.

Leonardo da Vinci: I shall go down in history as the man who opened a door!

Queen Marie: Choose wisely, Henry. Divorce is only something they do in England.

Pierre Le Pieu: [to Danielle] I may be twice your age, but I'm well endowed. As evidenced by my estate, I've always had a soft spot for the less fortunate. You need a wealthy benefactor - and I need a young lady with spirit.

Leonardo DaVinci Then I shall have to make you wings.

Grand Dame: I find your collection of folk tales quite brilliant, actually.
Jacob Grimm: Thank you.
Grand Dame: But I must say, I was terribly disturbed when I read your version of the Little Cinder Girl.
Jacob Grimm: Well, there are those who swear that Perrault's telling with its Fairy Godmother and um... [laughs] magic pumpkins would be closer to the truth.
Wilhelm Grimm: Some claim the shoe was made of fur. Others insist it was glass. Well, I guess we'll never know.
Jacob Grimm: Forgive me, Your Majesty, might I inquire about the painting? She's really quite, um... extraordinary.
Grand Dame: Her name was Danielle de Barbarac. [reaches inside the box the footman has brought to her] And this was her "glass" slipper.
[The Grimm Brothers look at each other in shock.]
Grand Dame: Perhaps you allow me to set the record straight.
Wilheim Grimm: Then it's true, the story.
Grand Dame: Yes, quite. Now then, what was that phrase you use? Oh, yes. Once upon a time, there lived a young girl who loved her father very much...

Young Danielle: Gustave, I told you, not today!
Young Gustave: You look like a girl!
Young Danielle: That is what I am, half-wit!
Young Gustave: Yeah, but today you look it!
Young Danielle: Boy or girl, I can still whip you!

Danielle: Forgive me, Your Highness, I did not see you.
Henry: Your aim would suggest otherwise.
Danielle: And for that, I know I must die.
Henry: Then speak of this to no one, and I shall be lenient.
Danielle: We have other horses, Your Highness. Younger, if that is your wish.
Henry: I wish for nothing more than to be free of my guilded cage.

Henry: [as Danielle hurries away] Have we met before?
Danielle: I-I do not believe so, Your Highness.
Henry: I could have sworn I knew every courtier in the provience.
Danielle: Well... I am visiting a cousin.
Henry: Who?
Danielle: My cousin.
Henry: Yes, you said that. Which one?
Danielle: Th-the only one I have, sire.
Henry: Are you coy on purpose or do you honestly refuse to tell me your name?
Danielle: [stops quickly] No. [quickly heads towards the gate] And yes.
Henry: Well, then, pray tell me your cousin's name so that I might call upon her to learn who you are. For anyone can quote Thomas More is well worth the effort.
Danielle: The Prince has read Utopia?
Henry: I found it sentimental and dull. Honestly, the plight of the everyday rustic bores me.
Danielle: I... take it you do not converse with many peasants.
Henry: He, certainly not, no. Naturally.
Danielle: [starts walking again] Forgive me, Your Highness, but there is nothing "natural" about it. A country's character is defined by its "everyday rustics", as you call them. They are the legs you stand on and that position demands respect, not...
Henry: Am I to understand that you find me... arrogant?
Danielle: Well, you gave one man back his life, but did you ever glance at the others?
[Danielle tries to get away while Henry is distracted by the criminals' wagon.]
Henry: Please, I beg you, a name. Any name.
Danielle: I... I fear the only name to leave you with... is Countess Nicole de Lancret.
Henry: There now... that wasn't so hard.
