Dangerous Liaisons Quotes

Glenn Close as Marquise de Merteuil

  • (Glenn Close) "When one woman strikes at the heart of another she seldom misses, and the wound is invariably fatal."
  • (Glenn Close) "Ah. Madame de Volanges."
  • (Glenn Close) "When it comes to marriage, one man is as good as the next. And even the least accomodating is less trouble than a mother."
  • (Glenn Close) "Vanity and happiness are incompatible."
  • (Glenn Close) "When I came out into society, I was fifteen. I already knew that the role I was condemned to, namely to keep quiet and do what I was told, gave me the perfect opportunity to listen and observe. Not to what people told me, which naturally was of no interest, but to whatever it was they were trying to hide. I practiced detachment. I learned how to look cheerful while, under the table, I stuck a fork into the back of my hand. I became a virtuoso of deceit. It wasn't pleasure I was after, it was knowledge. I consulted the strictest moralists to learn how to appear, philosophers to find out what to think, and novelists to see what I could get away with. And in the end, I distilled everything to one wonderfully simple principle: win or die."
  • (Glenn Close) "My victory wasn't over her."
  • (John Malkovich) "Of Course it was. What are you talking about?"

  • (Glenn Close) "Like most intellectuals, he's intensely stupid."
  • (Glenn Close) "One of the reasons I never re-married, despite a bewildering range of offers, was the determination NEVER AGAIN to be ordered about."

  • (John Malkovich) "It's only the wind."
  • (John Malkovich) "Where are you? It's nothing to be frightened about."
  • (Uma Thurman) "Yes there is. I'm bleeding."
  • (John Malkovich) "Be careful of the Marquise de Merteuil."
  • (Keanu Reeves) "You must permit me to treat with skepticism anything you have to say about her."
  • (John Malkovich) "Nevertheless, I must tell you in this affair, we are both her creatures, as I believe her letters to me will prove. When you have read them, you may decide to circulate them."
  • (John Malkovich) "You see, I have no intention of breaking down her prejudices. I want her to believe in God and virtue and the sanctity of marriage, and still not be able to stop herself. I want the excitement of watching her betray everything that's is most important to her. Surely you understand that. I thought betrayal was your favorite word."
  • (Glenn Close) "No, no -- "cruelty." I always think that has a nobler ring to it."
  • (John Malkovich) "Please, don't get up."

  • (John Malkovich) "All in good time."
  • (Glenn Close) "The century is drawing to its close."
  • (John Malkovich) "I often wonder how you manage to invent yourself."
  • (Glenn Close) "Well, I had no choice, did I? I'm a woman. Women are obliged to be far more skillful than men. You can ruin our reputation and our life with a few well-chosen words. So, of course, I had to invent, not only myself, but ways of escape no one has every thought of before. And I've succeeded because I've always known I was born to dominate your sex and avenge my own."
  • (John Malkovich) "It's beyond my control."

Mildred Natwick as Madame de Rosemonde

  • (Mildred Natwick) "What is true of most men is doubly so of him."
  • (Mildred Natwick) "I'm sorry to say this, but, those who are most worthy of love are never made happy by it."
  • (Michelle Pfeiffer) "But, why? Why should that be?"
  • (Mildred Natwick) "Do you still think men love the way we do? No -- men enjoy the happiness they feel. We can only enjoy the happiness we give. They are not capable of devoting themselves exclusively to one person. So to hope to be made happy by love is a certain cause of grief."

Uma Thurman as Cécile de Volanges

  • (Uma Thurman) "Are you saying I'm going to have to do"
  • (Uma Thurman) "THAT with three different men?"
  • (Glenn Close) "I'm saying, you stupid little girl, that provided you take a few elementary precautions you can do it or not as often as you like, with as many different men as you like, in as many different ways as you like."

Peter Capaldi as Azolan

  • (Peter Capaldi) "It's all very well to be sorry now."
  • (John Malkovich) "Let it be. He had good cause. I don't believe that's something anyone has ever been able to say about me."

Michelle Pfeiffer as Madame Marie de Tourvel
