(Mary Collins has taken the appearance of Lady Helen and is dining with Uther)
Lady Helen: (about Arthur) Poor child. It can't have been easy to grow up without a mother.
Lady Helen: Hm. That bond between mother and son, it's so hard to replace.
Uther: Hasn't been easy.
Lady Helen: I'm sure. Perhaps if you found someone? If you remarried? I'm sure you'd have the pick of any lady in the kingdom.
Uther: Well, perhaps I'll find love again, but I'm afraid it's too late to replace Arthur's mother.
Lady Helen: Yes. It's certainly too late for Arthur.
