Total quotes (20)
King Edward: Elizabeth, you knew when you married me that I would not be a husband that would faithfully sit at your feet. We are not young anymore. We are not those two people who met on the side of the road. They are gone.
Elizabeth: Then what remains?
King Edward: What remains is my love for you. You are what sustains me in battle. You are my home.
Lady Margaret: My son will never marry you.
Princess Elizabeth: Yes, he will. If he wins, because that's the only way he'd have the support of England with his backside on the throne. So whatever happens in this battle, I will be Queen, and this is the very last time that you will ever sit in my presence.
Richard: What are your intentions with Anne Neville?
George: Why? What are yours?
Richard: What do you think they are?
George: Well, you're not attracted to her, which can only leave a motive no more honorable than mine. You might fool Edward, brother, but you can't fool me. Stay away from Anne Neville.
Princess Elizabeth: Is it word from Richard?
Lady Margaret: He's using you, you fool, to shame Henry and rob men from his side, but you're so vain you think he loves you.
Princess Elizabeth: He does love me, you spiteful—
Lady Margaret: You're a whore. You are monstrous in the eyes of God for what you've done with him.
Duchess Cecily: You should understand. He was barely eleven years old when his father died at the She-Devil's hand. Have you any idea?
Jacquetta: Indeed we do. I lost my own husband and my son in a similarly brutal and senseless manner.
Duchess Cecily: Are we to measure our pain against each other? Are we to compete of who's suffered more?
Countess of Warwick: I am sorry for your loss.
Queen Elizabeth: For which you mean the brutal slaying of my father and my brother, who were innocent of any crime in all their lives and made obedient to their Lord and King?
Countess of Warwick: In the fortunes of war—
Queen Elizabeth: It was not war. This wasn't an honorable death on a battlefield. It was murder, and it was treason in the eyes of God and man.
Jacquetta: Elizabeth? You're as cold as ice. Elizabeth? Elizabeth? This is a seeing. You have been warned of danger to your boys. Now, do you see more?
Elizabeth: They must not be with strangers.
Jacquetta: So be it. We have had a warning and now we will keep them close with us and they will be safe. You're of my line, Elizabeth. I knew you had The Sight.
Sir William: Henry won't be leaving with you.
Lady Margaret: What did you say?
Sir William: He's been placed under my guardianship.
Lady Margaret: On whose orders?
Sir William: I've been instructed by the House of York.
Lady Margaret: She ordered this.
Sir William: Do you speak of the Queen.
Lady Margaret: I speak of that witch.
Sir William: That is treason.
Jacquetta: When you married into the Royal House, their customs became yours. You understand that as surely as Edward does.
Queen Elizabeth: I don't know what he understands! I only know that the closer he gets to his brothers, the further he feels from me. Truly, mother, we are destined. Ever since... but ever since he came back from battle...
Jacquetta: Not entirely distant, I think.
Queen Elizabeth: How did you know?
Jacquetta: Your husband is as fertile as a bull. Whenever he returns from victory, a child is never far behind.
