Vilgefortz: If you want to protect what you love, join our side in the battle to come. The child will not remain safe for long, and your... passivity will be no weapon with which to save her.
Geralt: It is incredible how much my neutrality outrages everyone. How it subjects me to offers of pacts and agreements and lectures of the necessity of making a choice and joining the right side. I am not your equal partner in this game. So, no, I shall continue on my path. I shall respond to events. I'll adapt with the world as it changes.
Vilgefortz: I understand, witcher. But adapting may not be enough. Just know there is only one way you do not lose her.
Geralt: And if I refuse to join your side?
Vilgefortz: No matter where you go, what you do, there will always be enemies waiting for you.
Yennefer: To us. And a nearly perfect evening.
Geralt: I love you.
Yennefer: That's the first time you've ever said that.
Geralt: It can't be.
Yennefer: You used to think it. But tonight, you actually said it. You can kiss me now. In front of everyone. (they kiss) It's our first night out together. And all I can think about is getting you alone.
Ciri: I thought if I learned magic it would make me a better leader. Maybe my grandmother was right. Maybe it's better to govern with steel and steel alone.
Geralt: Hmm. As a witcher, I will accept coin from someone, no matter where they're from. Nations are invisible lines that people assign meaning to. A life, however... A life has real meaning. It's warm skin and a beating heart. It should only be taken as a last resort. Righteousness can easily become rage. Justice can easily become scorn. If you want to be a queen, be a queen. I think you'll make an excellent one.
Jaskier: Neutrality has consequences too, Geralt.
Geralt: There are already consequences, Jaskier. And not just for Ciri. I thought by taking her off the board, the world would stop trying to use her. Instead, they're trying to use others in her place.
Jaskier: And they will continue to. Because that is what people in power do. But she's not a witcher. She's certainly not an Aretuzan witch sourcing magic out of... stones, or hemp, or plants, or whatever it is that Yennefer does. She's a princess. I think you should trust her.
Geralt: Her source.
Jaskier: Her... what now?
Geralt: You're right.
Jaskier: I'm right... Well, that's deeply worrying. What?
(Geralt's letter for Yennefer)
Geralt: Now, for the first time, I understand real fear. Never seeing you and Ciri again. Much is uncertain on this Continent. The dangers we've seen foretell an even more menacing future. But, Yen, please know I will learn to trust you again. You, Ciri, and I, we belong together.
Geralt: Use your knowledge of magic to train the girl. You're the only person who's helped her control her powers.
Yennefer: As if I'd trust anyone else with her.
Geralt: Villentretenmerth told us we were made for each other. Destined for each other. And that nothing would come of it because destiny alone isn't sufficient. Something more is needed. She is something more.
