Dowager Empress Marie

View Quote Anya: We're going way too fast!
Dimitri: [comes back from the red hot glowing locomotive in a hurry] Nobody's driving this train! We're gonna have to jump!
Anya: Did you say "jump?!" [Dimitri opens the side door revealing that they are moving across a bridge] After you!
Dimitri: Fine, then we'll uncouple the car.
View Quote Dimitri: [bows before the Dowager] You sent for me, your Grace?
Dowager Empress Marie: Ten million rubles, as promised, with my gratitude.
Dimitri: I accept your gratitude, your Highness, but I-- I don't want your money.
Dowager Empress Marie: What do you want, then?
Dimitri: Unfortunately, nothing you can give. [bows and starts to walk out]
Dowager Empress Marie: Young man... [Dimitri halts] Where did you get that music box? [Dimitri is speechless] You were the boy, weren't you - the servant boy who got us out? You saved her life and mine, then you restored her to me. Yet you want no reward.
Dimitri: Not anymore.
Dowager Empress Marie: Why the change of mind?
Dimitri: It was more a change of heart. I must go. [bows one last time and leaves]
View Quote Dimitri: [grabs a chain holding down some cargo] I got an idea Vlad, give me a hand with this.
[Vladimir looses his balance and falls into a box]
Dimitri: [Dimitri edges his way out of the car. The ground whizzes by beneath him as he lowers himself underneath the baggage car] Hand me the chain! [reaches up and is stunned to see Anya hanging out over him with the chain] Not you!
Anya: Vlad's busy at the moment.
[Dimitri accepts the chain, from Anya and hooks it onto the undercarriage. CRUNCH sound. Dimitri’s POV: Twisted steel from the front of the train flies back at him like shrapnel. With Anya’s help he yanks himself up just as the shrapnel whips by, shattering a tree. They land in near embrace, and catch their breath. Their eyes meet, stirring some distant feeling. Dimitri snaps out of it first, glancing back to the shattered tree receding it the distance]
Anya: And to think, that could have been you.
Dimitri: If we live through this, remind me to thank you.
[The engine and the baggage car are in collision course with the broken bridge]
Dimitri: Here goes nothing. Brace yourselves. (the chain gets caught on the tracks and pulls the baggage car around, sliding after the runaway engine)
Anya: Well, there is our stop. [She, Dimitri, Pooka, and Vlad all jump off the baggage car, screaming, and not a moment too soon, as they land in the snow safely. The overheated train engine and the ruined baggage car both plunge off the broken bridge, crash, and ignite into fireballs with an enormous explosion when they hit the bottom]
Dimitri: I hate trains. Remind me never to get on the train again.
View Quote Dimitri: [tries to wake Anya up from sleeping] Hey.
Anya: [slugs him] Ugh!
Dimitri: [falls-backwards into the opposite seat holding his nose] Ow!
Anya: [rises up shocked, apologizing] Sorry, I thought you were some... [finally realizing she hits Dimitri] Oh! It's you. Well, that's okay then. [starts to lie back down]
Dimitri: [grabs Anya hand, pulling her from the bench seat toward the compartment door] C'mon, we gotta go!
Anya: Where are we going?
[Vladimir heads down the corridor as Dimitri, Anya and Pooka exit the compartment]
Dimitri: I think you broke my nose!
Anya: [puts her coat on, exasperated] Men are such babies.
View Quote Dimitri: Here, I brought you a dress.
Anya: [Giggles] You brought me a...tent. [Looks inside]
Dimitri: [Does the same] What are you looking for?
Anya: The Russian Circus! I think it's still in here!
View Quote Dimitri: Look, I think we got off on the wrong foot.
Anya: Well, I think we did too.
Dimitri: Okay.
Anya: But I appreciate your apology.
Dimitri: Apology? Who said anything about an apology? I was just saying that we--
Anya: Please, just don't talk anymore, okay? It's only gonna upset me.
Dimitri: Fine, I'll be quiet. I'll be quiet if you will.
Anya: Alright, I'll be quiet.
Dimitri: Fine.
Anya: Fine.
Dimitri: Fine.
Anya: Fine. [after a pause] You think you're gonna miss it?
Dimitri: Miss what, your talking?
Anya: No! Russia.
Dimitri: Nope.
Anya: But it was your home.
Dimitri: It was a place I once lived. End of story.
Anya: Well, then you must plan on making Paris your true home.
Dimitri: What is it with you and homes?!
Anya: Well, for one thing it's something that every normal person wants, and for another thing, it's a thing where you--
Dimitri: What?
Anya: Oh, just forget it!
Dimitri: Fine!
[Vladimir enters the compartment]
Anya: Thank goodness it's you! Just, please, remove him from my sight!
Vladimir: [to Dimitri] What have you done to her?
Dimitri: Me? It's her!
Anya: Ha! [leaves]
Vladimir: [to Pooka] Oh, no! An unspoken attraction?
Dimitri: [gasps] "ATTRACTION?!" For that skinny little brat?!! Have you lost your mind? [storms out]
Vladimir: I was only asking a simple question.
Dimitri: "Attraction?" Ridiculous.
[Meanwhile, crashing through brittle limbs, as they navigate their way toward the train and the suspecting travelers, Rasputin's minions catch up with the train, and as they rocket beneath the train and the engine, Rasputin's green minions leave a wake of flames on the tracks behind them. The minions, now tiny little green demons, crawl all over the train engine and enters its boiler, and when it starts to overheat, the engine glows red, speeds up, and rattles as if it is about to fall apart.]
View Quote Dowager Empress Marie: [about Dimitri] My darling... He didn't take the money.
Anya: [surprised] He didn't?
View Quote Rasputin: [has Anya trapped in the falling debris of the bridge] Say your prayers, Anastasia! No one can save you!
Dimitri: [appears from nowhere] WANNA BET?! [punches Rasputin and dives to save Anya]
Anya: Dimitri! If we live through this, remind me to thank--
Dimitri: You can thank me later.
View Quote Rasputin: Bartok! Get me a comb! Find some cologne! I want to look my best tonight!
Bartok: That might take some work, sir.
Rasputin: Then snap to it! We're going to a party!
Bartok: [excited] Oh, boy! A party in Paris! I can teach you all the latest dance moves! It starts with a woo! And then, then you get really crazy with the hips, sir. It's fun!
Rasputin: We'll let the Grand Duchess, Anastasia have her moment!
Bartok: Who cares?
Rasputin: And then we'll kill her!
Bartok: Right and then we'll... [suddenly realizes what Rasputin's talking about] Kill her?! What happened to the party idea?
Rasputin: That's where I will kill her! Crush her at the height of her glory!
Bartok: And we're back to the crushing. Sir, I am begging you, please, PLEASE, forget the girl and get a life!
Rasputin: Oh, I'll get a life, Bartok! HERS!! [laughs maniacally]
View Quote Sophie: [She and Dowager Empress Marie just finished reading Anya's farewell letter] They've eloped! Isn't it romantic? It's a perfect ending.
Dowager Empress Marie: No, it's a perfect beginning.
View Quote Vladimir: [goes to the front window and peers at the engine and sees sparks raining down] Uh, Dimitri?
Dimitri: What?
Vladimir: I think someone has flambéed our engine! [Anya and Dimitri move forward and see that the engine is blowing smoke and fire]
Dimitri: [starts for the possessed locomotive's coal tender to observe] Something's not right. [climbs up the ladder on the engine's tender] Wait here, I'll check it out. [climbs on top, goes over the tender, and goes inside the engine room, only to find no one driving the burning train engine]
View Quote Vladimir: [has just discovered that their passports are outdated] It's what I hate about this government. Everything's in red.
Dimitri: Red?!
Vladimir: I propose we move to the baggage car, quickly, before the guards come.
Dimitri: I propose we get off this train.
View Quote [An explosion caused by Rasputin's minions has just separated the runaway locomotive and the baggage car from the dining car and coaches after they overheart the engine]

Vladimir: I don't know! But there goes the dining car!
View Quote [Anya and Dimitri leave the opera box and arrive at the Dowager's box room so she can be announced]
Dimitri: [arrives at the Dowager's box room with Anya] Wait here for just a moment. I'll go in and announce you properly.
[He goes to the door, but Anya stops him first]
Anya: Dimitri?
Dimitri: Yes?
Anya: [nervous] Look, we've been through a lot together.
Dimitri: [excited] Uh-huh.
Anya: [really nervous] And I just wanted to--
Dimitri: [really excited] Yes?
Anya: Well-- [loses it] Thank you, I guess. Yes, thank you for everything.
[Dimitri turns around, disappointed, and heads for the door and Anya goes the other way]
Dimitri: [turns around; nervous] Anya, I--
Anya: [excited] Yes?
Dimitri: [really nervous] I'm...I...Um--
Anya: [really excited] Yes?
Dimitri: [also loses it] I just wanted to wish you good luck, I guess.
[Dimitri shakes Anya's hand]
Anya: [disappointed] Oh.
Dimitri: Well here goes.
[Dimitri walks into the Dowager's box. He enters Dowager's box and approaches Sophie]
Dimitri: Please inform her majesty, The Dowanger Empress, that I have found her granddaughter... [Anya listens to Dimitri from the other side of the door] ...the Grand Duchess Anastasia. She's waiting to see her just outside the door.
Sophie: I'm very sorry young man, but the Dowanger Empress, she will see no one.
[Overhearing this, Marie turns to Dimitri very stern]
Dowager Empress Marie: You may tell that impertinent young man that I have seen enough Grand Duchess Anastasias to last me a lifetime.
[Sophie has second thoughts to have Dimitri to leave]
Sophie: Um, you better go.
Dimitri: [nervous] Please, let me just...
Dowager Empress Marie: Now if you'll excuse me, I wish to live the remainder of my lonely life in peace.
Sophie: Come, I'll see you to the door. Come, come now, come to the door.
[Dimitri ducks through the curtain after Sophie closes it and sits himself down in a chair next to Marie]
Dimitri: Your Majesty, I intend you no harm. My name is Dimitri. I used to work in the palace.
Dowager Empress Marie: [sarcastically] Well, that is one I haven't heard, I must say.
[She starts to walk away, but Dimitri walks after her]
Dimitri: Wait! Don't go, please! [gets in her way] If you'll just hear me out--
Dowager Empress Marie: [snaps] I know what you're after. I've seen it before; men who train young women in the royal ways. [rings a bell]
Dimitri: But if Your Highness will just listen--
Dowager Empress Marie: Haven't you been listening? I've had enough! [Anya listens to the conversation closer] I don't care how much you have fashioned this girl to look like her, sound like her, or act like her. In the end, it never is her.
Dimitri: But this time it is her.
Dowager Empress Marie: [remembering] Dimitri... I've heard of you. You're that conman from St. Petersburg, who was holding auditions to find an Anastasia look-alike.
[Anya gasps after hearing this]
Dimitri: But, your Grace, we came all the way from Russia just to see--
Dowager Empress Marie: And others have come from Timbuktu.
Dimitri: No, it's not--It's not that. It's not what you think.
[He tries to take her hands in compassion, but she angrily stands up]
Dowager Empress Marie: How much pain will you inflict on an old woman for money? [Anya becomes shocked and horrified as she discovers who Dimitri really is and the guards arrive to kick Dimitri out] Remove him at once!
Dimitri: [struggling with the guards] But she is Anastasia, I'm telling you! She's the Grand Duchess! If you only speak with her, and you'll SEE!
[Dimitri gets kicked out of the Dowager's box and looks at Anya, who overheard his argument with her and she confronts him after hearing who Dimitri really is]
Anya: It was all a lie, wasn't it?
Dimitri: [gets up and tries to reason with Anya] No, no.
Anya: You used me? I was just part of your con to get her money?
Dimitri: [trying to regain composure] NO! No, no, no. [Anya walks away, and he follows and stops her] Look, it may have started out that way, but everything's different now. Because you really are Anastasia. You are!
[Anya becomes really angry]
Anya: Stop it! [shoves him] From the very beginning, you LIED! [shoves him again] And I not only believed you, I actually-- OH!
[She walks away again, but Dimitri follows and stops her]
Dimitri: Anya, please! When you spoke of the hidden door in the wall opening, and the little boy-- Listen to me. That was--
[The conversation is cut short as Anya refuses to listen]
Anya: NO!! I don't wanna hear about anything that I said or remembered. YOU JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!
[She tries to walk away, but Dimitri grabs her arm and she slaps him. She then storms off. Dimitri tries to chase after her, but fails as he is blocked by a crowd]
View Quote [Bartok just ended up in Rasputin's section of Limbo]
Rasputin: WHO DARES INTRUDE ON MY SOLITUDE?! [kicks a slab of stone with his foot] Get out! Get out! [squeezes Bartok very hardly with his hand, but suddenly realizes who it is] Bartok? Is that you?
Bartok: Master? You're alive?
Rasputin: [scoffs] In a manner of speaking. [his right eyeball falls out of its socket.]
Bartok: Whoa. That fell right out there, sir.
Rasputin: Something has happened. [Rasputin pops it back in] I can feel the dark forces stirring!
Bartok: I'm not surprised, because I saw her, Anastasia!
Rasputin: Anastasia? Alive?! [his mouth begins to sag through his beard]
Bartok: Uh, sir, your lips, they're, um...
Rasputin: That Romanov brat!
Bartok: [adjusts Rasputin's lips to their rightful place] Yeah, ain't that a kick in the head? I guess a curse just ain't what it used to be, huh, sir?
Rasputin: That's why I'm stuck here in Limbo! My curse is unfulfilled! [stretches out his arm with Bartok in his hand, his hand flies of his arm and hits a wall. He sees this, gasps, and begins to sob] Look at me! I'm falling apart! [sobs] I'm a wreck!
Bartok: Actually, considering how long you've been dead, you look pretty good! [Rasputin sadly scoffs] Sir, you do, you do.
Rasputin: Really?
Bartok: Sir, is this the face of a bat who would lie to you? [puts on a cute face] Come on, for a minute, you had your old spark back!
Rasputin: If only I hadn't lost that gift from the dark forces... the key to my powers...!
Bartok: What, you mean this reliquary?
Rasputin: [gasps] Where did you get that?
Bartok: Oh, I found it--
Rasputin: [Rasputin grabs his reliquary and his hand] GIVE IT TO ME!
Bartok: Alright, alright! Don't get so grabby!
Rasputin: [screws his hand back on] My old friend! Together again! [laughs] Now my dark purpose will be fulfilled! And the last of the Romanovs will DIE!!
