Francis: I wanted to one kind of King, and then I was forced to be another. Not I cannot go back.
Francis: What is needed now is a King to be feared and not just for the prisoners, but for all of France and by God I will give them one so that this never happens again! Let them freeze.
You must separate yourself from this faith and you must do it immediately.Greer
Francis: What is Mary doing here?
Catherine: She's looking for her rapist, and if you don't find him that's what she'll be doing for the rest of her life; in every room, in every crowd.
Francis, you seem shaken. But they failed and you're alright. Mary is alright.Bash
Mary: Don't! Don't come any closer. I can barely bear to have you look at me.
Francis: Mary. You are my life and I love you. This is my fault.

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
Mary, I love you. You do know that, no matter what I've done.Francis

Claude: I'm marrying Conde. Thanks anyway for your selfless offer.
Narcisse: Are you prepared to die for this marriage?
Claude: At least my family will cry at my funeral.

Mary: I don't feel strong. I feel like I'm sleepwalking and I don't know how to wake up.
Greer: If your heart wants to sleep, let it. Many things can be forced out of duty, but not the heart.
