  • I'm accustomed to stand when a woman leaves the table.
  • No one wants to be romanced by a buffoon.
  • I warn you, scoundrel, I was trained to ride at the King's Academy, and schooled in weaponry by the Palace Guard; you stand no chance. When you run, I shall ride, and when you stop, the steel of this strap shall be lodged in your brain!


  • I haven't been your girlfriend for a whole month now. You can tell me the truth.
  • You know something? Nobody gives a rat's ass that you have to push the toast down twice! You know why? Because EVERYBODY pushes their toast down twice!


  • Theoretically, if you go to the past in the future, then your future lies in the past. This is a picture of you in the future - in the past.

Leopold: Everything plays a farce to you. Women respond to sincerity. No-one wants to be romanced by a buffoon.
