    • Paladin: (observing a chess match between two ladies, Paladin reaches into the board but is stopped by both of them) You know, it's a very good thing that Nature did not give you as much brains as she did beauty, because then you would both be geniuses instead of the most attractive--
      Otto: (thrusting Paladin's card under his nose) I understand you undertake certain types of employment, Mr. Paladin.

    • Otto: (referring to his crippled legs) Do not let these alarm you, Mr. Paladin. When I am on a horse, its legs become mine. I rode before I walked.
      Paladin: While other men had first to crawl, huh.
      Otto: You are a paradox, Sir Paladin. A gentleman knight who risks lance and life for people he dislikes or even hates, to get enough money to pamper his expensive tastes. At the very best--or least, my dear Paladin, you are a spiritual assassin.
      Paladin: You do take advantage of your years, old man.
      Otto: I take every advantage. And why not? I am the creation of all the von Albrechts who ever lived. In a sense, I am six hundred years old. Six centuries of breeding and tradition.
      Paladin: Well, when the meek finally do inherit the earth, my very strong conviction is that none of your bloodline will flow in the veins of the property owners. Excuse me.

    • Paladin: (after hesitating over which lady's hand to slip the ring on, only to put it on his own little finger) Ladies, do study your chess. Do.

    • Paladin: These people are not peasants. They take their living from a very hard, a very demanding land. That means they have strength, fortitude, and some amount of pride.

    • Otto: When he was very young, he was a choir boy. Six hundred years for this. The hope of a great name. Destroyed, dead in the dirt of a strange land. Now I am the very last of the von Albrechts. Do you understand what I am saying?
      Paladin: "Well may the children weep before you. They know the grief of man, without its wisdom. They sink in man’s despair, without its calm."
      Otto: Whose fault, Paladin?
      Paladin: That's a question each man will have to answer for himself.
