Serafina: There is something I must tell you. No, you must let me. I lied to you. I'm not what I seemed. I am--
Paladin: Princess Alisna Serafina of Montenegro.
Serafina: You knew? (Paladin hands her his card) You were paid to come after me. To bring me back here as a prisoner. You are a gigolo!
Paladin: No. Whatever happened between us was part of no bargain. By being what you are--a promise of fulfillment, and beauty, and peace, you made my job infinitely more difficult, not easier.
Serafina: I'm surprised you've not used up your store of pretty speeches.
Paladin: Whatever I said to you, I meant.
Serafina: How much did they pay you for me?
Paladin: Nothing yet. Cash on delivery.
Serafina: I'm ready. Will you bring me to them bound?
Paladin: You don't have to go. I'll take you anywhere you want to go. On one condition.
Serafina: And what is that?
Paladin: That it be truly what you want. You remember Marcus Aurelius?
Paladin: Well, he said another thing. He said that duty is like a man's shadow. He may cast his eyes away from it, yet will it follow him even as he flees. There are some people born to obligations which they can not run away from without causing suffering to many others. You are such a one, Serafina.
Serafina: But we, we did reach for a moment beyond the dungeon bars, didn't we?
Serafina: And we touched.
Paladin: And we touched.
