  • (Patrick Godfrey) "As a matter of fact, I do."
  • (Henry) "Well then how can you be certain to find them? And if you do find them, are they really the one for you or do you only think they are? And what happens if the person you're supposed to be with never appears, or, or she does, but you're too distracted to notice?"

And if so, when the two of them were walking side by side were they both the one for you and you just happened to meet the first one first or, was the second one supposed to be first? And is everything just chance or are some things meant to be?"
  • (Henry) "You told me it was a matter of life or death."

  • (Henry) "And love without trust? What of that?"
  • (Danielle) "Signore, my name is Danielle de Barbarac, and I am but a servant."

  • (Danielle) "You'd do the same for me, admit it."
  • (Lee Ingleby) "Me? Pretend to be a courtier? Prancing round like some nobleman when I've never been to court. And neither have you."
  • (Danielle) "Then I won't recongnised. Hand me that gown so I can be on my way."
  • (Lee Ingleby) "They'll never buy it. You are too sweet."

  • (Danielle) "I am picking wildflowers. Gustav, can you still see her?"
