Catherine: It doesn't matter why he did it. Or how.
Elizabeth: Of course it does. That's where the human being lives, in the how and why, not the should. If you cannot metabolize your pure ideas of love and philosophy with blood and sinew and f**ked-up humans who do their best and fail but try to love and serve you...
Catherine: Everything in me wants to f**king kill him.
Elizabeth: Not everything. Or you wouldn't have to hit yourself in the face.
Catherine: Sometimes you just take the next step and the path appears. That is what I wished to do and my team dissolved around me.
Elizabeth: As I said, difference of opinion.
Marial: It happens. Many people like this dress, but I have heard negative comments also.
Catherine: We cannot change without cost, even if it is our own.
Elizabeth: This amount of agitation is quite serious. It can cause the baby to explode in the womb. You must have a release.
Dr. Vinodel: Self-pleasure is allowed in pregnancy, but I would have to be standing by to watch.
Catherine: Is that essential?
Dr. Vinodel: Probably not as essential as I'm making it sound.
(Catherine is crying hysterically, Elizabeth walks in, looks around at people for the reason...)
Elizabeth: And you fools just stand there? I thought the new Russia was one where we held each other in our joys and sorrows. (hugs Catherine) Let it go. It is a storm. They will never stop coming, but pass through and away. They always will.
