David Tennant as Giacomo Casanova

  • (David Tennant) "Now you see the puzzle is, if I were married to Henriette, and separated by hundreds of miles, I'd do anything to be with her. To hell with the job, I'd resign, I'd walk barefoot. Yet you seem decidedly static, why is that? I don't suppose you're having problems? In the marital bed, perhaps? Dare I suggest on your side of the bed. Bit of trouble with the old --"

  • (David Tennant) "Men I understand. I know what men think about, all day long. Those stupid little inches, driving you mad every waking hour. I know exactly what's going on in your head. Is it big? Is it big enough? Is it hard enough, will it work every time on demand; cause that's the only thing, that is the only bastard question; am I any good in bed? Is every other man better than me? Is every other man bigger and faster and slower and longer and deeper and harder; what am I doing wrong? How do I find out, cause no one ever talks about it, no one ever says. How can I ever find out what I'm doing wrong?"
  • (David Tennant) "Ask me."

  • (Nina Sosanya) "I was penniless."
  • (David Tennant) "I've been penniless, I didn't change sex. Well -- there was one night, but I was VERY drunk --"
  • (David Tennant) "Do you know what 'Casanova' means in the original Latin?"
  • (Nina Sosanya) "No."

  • (David Tennant) "Rule Brittania."
  • (David Tennant) "Bless me father, for I have sinned. Again. Um, I don't know where to start, um. It's money, father, er, love of money is a sin, isn't it?"
  • (Laura Fraser) "A grave sin."
  • (David Tennant) "I, I don't love it as such, but I need it, is that a sin?"
  • (Laura Fraser) "In too great a measure then, yes."
  • (David Tennant) "It's not for me. You see, there's this woman, um, and I suppose you can include lustful thoughts while you're at it --"

  • (David Tennant) "Although I have actually done that -- But anyway, um, first of all I was with another woman, and I slept with her, sorry, er, well, I slept with her lots of times so, very sorry.

  • (David Tennant) "So, I slept with her, without the false penis obviously, um,"
  • (David Tennant) "although we did find a way of using it -- But never mind that. You see, I, I was just trying to be honest, like the sisters told me, um. Oh yeah, two sisters. I slept with them, both at the same time, er, er, lots of times, I suppose I should, I should mention that."
  • (Laura Fraser) "Oh dear God."
  • (David Tennant) "I know, I know, but at least I didn't sleep with their mother."
  • (David Tennant) "Although I have actually done that, um, I suppose you should put that on the list. Two sisters, and a mother, and -- oh and those nuns -- two nuns, you might know them."
  • (David Tennant) "So, all in all, it's been a bit of a time, really, and I've ended up penniless. So, what do you think I should do, father?"

  • (David Tennant) "I'm a spy."
  • (Rupert Penry-Jones) "How d'you mean a spy?"
