Queen Marie Quotes:

  • Queen Marie: Baroness de Ghent, you are forthwith stripped of your title, and you and your horrible daughter are to be shipped to the Americas on the first available boat... Unless by some miracle, someone here will speak for you.

    [Rodmilla begins looking desperately at the other nobles, they look back coldly]

    Rodmilla: [nervously] There seem to be quite a few people out of town...

    Danielle: I will speak for her.

    [Rodmilla turns around and sees Danielle dressed like a princess while the others bow]

    Danielle: She is, after all, my stepmother.

    Rodmilla: [kneels; quietly] Your Highness.

    Henry: Marguerite, I don't believe you've met... my wife.

    Danielle: [to Rodmilla, smiling] I want you to know that I will forget you after this moment, and never think of you again. But you, I am quite certain, will think about me every single day for the rest of your life.

    Rodmilla: [quietly] And how long might that be?

    Danielle: [looks up] All I ask, Your Majesties... is that you show her the same courtesy that she has bestowed upon me.

  • King Francis: Baroness. Did you or did you not - lie to Her Majesty, the Queen of France?

    Queen Marie: Choose your words wisely, madame, for they may be your last.

    Baroness Rodmilla De Ghent: A woman would do practically anything for the love of a daughter, Your Majesties. Perhaps I did get... a little carried away.

    Marguerite: Mother, what have you done? Your Majesty, like you, I am just a victim here. She has lied to us both and I am ashamed to call her family.

    Baroness Rodmilla De Ghent: [pushes her] How dare you turn on me, you little ingrate?

    Marguerite: You see? You see what I have to put up with?

    King Francis: Silence, both of you! Good Lord!

    [to Jacqueline]

    King Francis: Are they always like this?

    Jacqueline: Worse, Your Majesty.

    Baroness Rodmilla De Ghent: Jacqueline, darling, I should hate to think you had anything to do with this.

    Jacqueline: [sarcastically] Of course not, Mother. I'm only here for the food.

  • [Marguerite has just freaked out after realizing that Danielle has been seeing the Prince]

    Queen Marie: Good heavens, child, are you all right?

    Marguerite: There was a bee.

  • Henry: How could I have been so blind? There I was, pouring my royal heart out to her, and she was simply trying to bid me farewell!

    Queen Marie: It is a strong woman who can keep her wits about her, with you trying to steal her heart.

    Henry: Yes, and what a clumsy thief I turned out to be.

  • Queen Marie: Any choice is better than Spain!

  • King Francis: You sir are restricted to the grounds.

    Henry: Are you putting me under house arrest?

    King Francis: Do not mock me, boy, for I am in a foul disposition. And I will have my way...

    Henry: Or what? You'll ship me off to the Americas like some criminal? All for the sake of your stupid contract?

    King Francis: You are the Crown Prince of France!

    Henry: And it is my life.

    Queen Marie: Francis, sit down before you have a stroke. Really. the two of you.

    [to Henry]

    Queen Marie: Sweetheart... you were born to privilege and with that comes specific obligations.

    Henry: Forgive me, Mother, but marriage to a complete stranger never made anyone in this room very happy.

    King Francis: You will marry Gabriella by the next full moon or I will strike at you in any way I can.

    Henry: What's it to be, father, hot oil or the rack?

    King Francis: I will simply deny you the crown and... live forever.

    Henry: Good. Agreed. I don't want it.

    [Walks out]

    King Francis: [to the Queen, frustrated] He's your son.

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

  • Cardinal Wolsey: A drink, Ma'am?

    Queen Marie: Thank you.

    Cardinal Wolsey: I can heartily recommend the porter here.

    Queen Marie: Really? Then do send him up to my room later.
