Narcisse: I take no pleasure in being right, especially as I may have been wrong about other issues. What happened tonight was reckless. It was the act of a people who feel that they have nothing to lose. To rob people of hope is a dangerous mistake and I suspect it may be my doing.
Lola: Through your pressure on Francis.
Narcisse: I feel this nation is burning and I am the man who lit the match.

These next moments of your life will either define you as a victim or as a powerful Queen, untouched by failed a assassination attempt. They will define who you are perceived to be, your place in history. Do not let them win. Trust me. Trust me and let me help you. Trust that I can get you through this because I swear to you that I can.Catherine
They tried to diminish a King tonight by degrading a Queen and they will not succeed because the world will never know what happened to you.Catherine
I know you don't want to be touched, that's alright. But, you're safe. I don't know how you managed to escape but you did. You are alive. You will survive this. I know this because I survived. You know that. They try to destroy you by taking your pride and your strength, but those things cannot be taken, not from you. Not ever.Catherine
I'm only going to ask you this once, so we are both clear on what you endured this night. Were you raped?Catherine

Francis: You think he was convinced?
Bash: I'm not sure I want you to be King anymore.
Francis: Good. Then he'll move to take my head.

Claude: Very nice. I see Mary's point now. She sent you to woo me, didn't she?
Conde: Yes. How's it going so far?
- Permalink: Yes. How's it going so far?
Conde: Now I feel a creeping sense of unease.
Mary: Because you've know me. I ask for things. And I'm asking you if you will become a symbol, for all of France. Would you consider marrying the Princess, Claude.

You did this to us, to France. For all that you claim you're trying to protect us, I have lost all faith in you and the man I thought you were.Mary
