Quartus Quotes:

  • [Secundus has just been murdered and has become a ghost, joining his other dead brothers]

    Secundus: [trying to laugh off his brothers' frosty stares] Oh, please, you're not annoyed at that whole murder thing, are you? I mean, that was ten years ago.

    Quartus: Great deal of good it did you, killing me, Secundus. Because now, of course, you're King of all Stormhold. Oh sorry, wait, no you're not - you're dead!

  • [deleted scene - the ghosts of Secundus, Quartus, and Sextus are standing in the crater next to an unconcious Yvaine]

    Secundus: With all due respect to father, that window thing was a rotten trick!

    Sextus: Excuse me? At least you had a chance! Quartus murdered me while I was asleep!

    Quartus: How many times do I have to tell you? It was Septimus!

    [the ghost of Tertius, recently poisoned, appears]

    Quartus: [to Tertius] Don't speak - don't say a word! Let me guess; Septimus?

    Tertius: [nods]

    Sextus: Poison?

    Tertius: [shrugs, then notices the stone lying next to Yvaine] The stone!

    [tries to pick it up and fails]

    Quintus: We *tried* it before - it didn't work!

    Secundus: But Tertius wasn't here, there were only four of us! Come on!
