Laundry Room Supervisor: (to Marguerite and Rodmilla) After you wash the table cloths, you can start on the napkins and moves those over there.
Rodmilla : Marguerite...
Marguerite:What?
Rodmilla: You heard the woman.
Marguerite: So did you.
Rodmilla: Yes, but I'm management.
Marguerite: Like Hell you are! You're just the same as me a big nobody!
Rodmilla: How dare you speak to me that way! I am of noble blood!
Laundry Room Supervisor: And YOU are getting on my nerves! (throws a pile of table cloths at Marguerite and Rodmilla and the two fall back into a vat of water while the other servants laugh at them) Heh, heh NOW get to work !


Rodmilla: Of all the insidious jokes, turning your mother into a Countess. Why it's almost as absurd as a prince who spends his days with a peasant who sleeps with pigs.
Danielle: What bothers you more, stepmother? That I am common? Or that I am competition?
Rodmilla: Where is the dress, Danielle?!
Danielle: I don't know what you're talking about.
Marguerite: The gown, the slippers, they were in my room this morning, and now they're gone. You hid them I know it!
Rodmilla: Where did you put the gown, Danielle?
Danielle: Where are the candlesticks, and the tapestries, and the silver?! Perhaps the dress is with them!
Rodmilla: You will produce that gown!
Danielle: I would rather die a thousand deaths than to see my mother's dress on that spoiled, selfish cow!

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

King Francis: [half-asleep] Off... with his head...
Queen Marie: Francis, wake up. Our son has something he wants to tell us.
Henry: Mother, Father, I want to build a University, with the largest library on the continent, where anyone can study no matter their station!
King Francis: All right... Who are you... and what have you done with our son?
Henry: [laughs] Oh, and I want to invite the gypsies to the ball!

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

[Henry and Danielle meet outside Pierre Le Pieu's castle.]
Henry: Hello.
Danielle: Hello. [pause] What are you doing here?
Henry: [sheepishly] I uh... I came to... rescue you.
Danielle: Rescue me? A commoner? [starts to walk away]
Henry: [going after her] Actually, I came to beg your forgiveness. I offered you the world and at the first test of honor, I betrayed your trust. Please, Danielle...
Danielle: [stops, turns around] Say it again.
Henry: I'm sorry.
Danielle: No. [smiles] The part where you said my name.
Henry: [smiling] Danielle.

[Danielle is looking at the books in the Franciscan monastery.]
Danielle: It makes me want to cry.
Henry: Pick one.
Danielle: I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens.
Henry: What is it that touches you so?
Danielle: I suppose it is because when I was young, my father would stay up late and read to me. He was addicted to the written word and I would fall asleep listening to the sound of his voice.
Henry: What sort of books?
Danielle: Science, philosophy... I suppose they remind me of him. He died when I was eight. Utopia was the last book he brought home.
Henry: Which explains why you quote it.
Danielle: I would rather hear his voice again than any sound in the world.
[Henry smiles, then the smile fades and he begins walking down the stairs away from Danielle.]
Danielle: Is something wrong?
Henry: [turns to face her] In all my years of study, not one tutor ever demonstrated the passion you have shown me in the last two days. You have more conviction in one memory than I have... in my entire being.
[Henry laughs slightly, walks away, Danielle follows.]
Danielle: Your Highness, if there is anything I have said or done...
Henry: Please... don't. It's not you.

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

[to Le Pieu] My father was an expert swordsman, monsieur. He taught me well. Now hand me that key or I swear on his grave I will slit you from navel to nose.

Some people read because they cannot think for themselves.

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!

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.

Rodmilla: Are you ill?
Danielle: [half-asleep] No! Yes...
Rodmilla: Where were you?
Danielle: I got lost.
Rodmilla: I don't believe you. You're hiding something from me, I can feel it. I demand to know what it is.
Danielle: Why don't you tell me so I can go back to sleep?
Marguerite: What about our breakfast?
Danielle: You have two hands, make it yourself.
Marguerite: Why you lazy little leech!
Rodmilla: Jacqueline, go and boil some water.
Jacqueline: Me? Boil water?... Oh, I knew it! I just knew it!
