    • Queen: When I was a little girl I lived at my papi's big house. I had a sister Jane, we slep in the same room. Only she had a big four poster, and I slept at the foot of her bed. We laughed a bit, dream of our future. I always said I was gonna marry a prince on a white horse. Jane would laugh at me. Who is gonna marry a slave girl like you, Queen? She said.

      This quote is an allusion to the following scene that could be seen in episode 1:

      Queen: I'm gonna marry a prince on a white house.
      Jane: Oh Queen, don't be silly. You are a slave girl. Who is gonna marry you?
