      • Sir Thomas: Much as I would like end your evil life, justice will be delivered as it should be...through the eyes of god and the King's law.

      • Lady Elizabeth: I'm curious. What's it like to know you'll never see your daughter again?
        Sir Thomas: You doubt I'll find her?
        Lady Elizabeth: Oh, you'll find her. In time. With enough money and men, she'll be rooted out and dragged back, I have no doubt about that. But the daughter you knew will be forever lost.
        Sir Thomas: Thank you for your observation Lady Elizabeth.
        Lady Elizabeth: That little girl who used to hold your hand so tightly, who listened with such awe to your stories, who loved you with unconditional devotion - that girl will be gone. The light in her eyes will never shine for you again Thomas.
        Sir Thomas: Do you think I enjoy this?
        Lady Elizabeth: Then don't do it.
        Sir Thomas: It's the way things are done in our world.
        Lady Elizabeth: Then have the courage to be the father she needs not the father the world expects of you.

      • Eleanor: What was mother like? I know she was kind and beautiful but what was she really like?
        Cedric: Yes, what was she like?
        William: Well, she liked to sing.
        Richard: Politics bored but she loved a good story.
        William: Especially comedies.
        Richard: I never heard her complain about anything.
        Eleanor: Well then she wouldn't have liked me very much.
        Richard: She would have liked you more than anyone. It was courage she most admired in people. I think because she felt she had so little herself. You are the woman she wanted to be Eleanor.
        Eleanor: What am I going to do?
        Richard: Find the courage to do what you have to do.
