      • Southampton: (about the Queen) She changes, you know.
        Essex: Was there ever a time when she didn't? Women are weathervanes, Henry.
        Southampton: And very vain too.

      • Elizabeth: (about Essex) Princes rule best by seeming to surrender. Oh, I know I have said he must come to me on his knees, but we do not train thoroughbreds to pull dray carts.
        Egerton: Capitulate?
        Elizabeth: I do not think you understand me, Sir. I give nothing. But for the peace of the kingdom he must seem to be forgiven. I am not Gloriana without the magic of his mirror.

      • (The Queen's final words)
        Elizabeth: Do the people love me?
        Egerton: Yes, Your Majesty.
        Elizabeth: They have always been good company.
