    • Francis Urquhart: Events - the politician's greatest enemy, they say. Plan till you're blue in the face, then things just happen. Events take over.

    • Francis Urquhart: (to the King) You have no constituency, no power base. You represent nothing but one talentless and discredited family. And very soon you won't even represent that. You will represent nothing. You will mean nothing. You will be nothing.

    • King: You wanted to destroy the monarchy.


      Francis Urquhart: Not at all, sir. Don't you understand what I'm telling you? I have no wish to. It is you I want to destroy, not the monarchy. My family came south with James I. We were the defenders of the British throne before your family was ever heard of.

    • Francis Urquhart: I am in blood steeped so far.

      The Prime Minister slightly misquotes Shakespeare (Macbeth, Act 3, Scene 4): "I am in blood, Stepp'd in so far that, should I wade no more."
