Daphne Bridgerton: Yes, Eloise, there... are perhaps darker turns in these woods than we've been taught to expect. There is light to be found at their end. And I know... one day... we both will find it.
Eloise Bridgerton: It must be taxing.
Daphne Bridgerton: What?
Eloise Bridgerton: The game of pretend that you feel you must endlessly maintain.
Daphne Bridgerton: You have no idea what it is to be a woman... what it might feel like to have one's entire life reduced to a single moment. This is all I have been raised for. This... is all I am. I have no other value. If I am unable to find a husband, I shall be worthless.
Anthony Bridgerton: Daphne, you're a Bridgerton.
Daphne Bridgerton: It would be easier if I were not.
