King George: There is no better. There is no cure. This is who I am. I will be here sometimes. And sometimes I will be... You can leave me. I would understand, and I would let you go.
Queen Charlotte: George. I will not leave you.
King George: You should.
Queen Charlotte: I will not.
King George: You have half a husband, Charlotte. Half a life. I cannot give you the future that you deserve. Not a full me. Not a full marriage. Only half. Half a man. Half a king. Half a life.
Queen Charlotte: If what we have is half, then we shall make it the very best half. I love you. It is enough. I am your queen. And as long as I am so, I shall never leave your side. You are king. You will be king. Your children will rule. Together, we are whole.
King George: I am a madman. I am a danger. In my mind, there are different worlds creeping in. The heavens and Earth collide. I do not know where I am.
Queen Charlotte: Do you love me?
King George: You do not wish a life with me for yourself. No one wishes that.
Queen Charlotte: George! I will stand with you between the heavens and the Earth. I will tell you where you are. Do you love me?
King George: I love you! From the mo... From the moment I saw you trying to go over the wall... I have loved you desperately. I cannot breathe when you are not near. I love you, Charlotte. My heart calls your name.
King George: When I was an infant, my colic was never just colic. My colic was a disaster. An ill omen. The potential... ruin of England. When I was a boy, refusal to eat my peas was the potential ruin of England. An incorrect sum at mathematics, the potential ruin of England. I have lived my entire life in terror of acting incorrectly because every incorrect action threatened the ruin of England. That terror nearly broke me. I found places to hide. My farms, my observatory. My madness. I thought that terror was the price of being royal. Now, I have met a woman who is never terrified. Who does as she pleases. Breaks rules, courts scandal. Commits unthinkable impertinences. And she is the most royal person I have ever known.
Princess Augusta: Every day you fail to produce an heir, our family's position weakens.
King George: Right. Thank you for the cue. Now I ask, is that all a king is? A royal stud-horse trotted out for the chosen mare? Or can a king rule in his own way through practical scientific study? Agricultural improvement? Tell me, what would the people prefer? A royal baby or cheap bread?
Princess Augusta: Right now, they have neither.
Queen Charlotte: You live for the happiness and the misery of a great nation.
King George: Charlotte.
Queen Charlotte: No. I am saying I understand. You live for the happiness and the misery of a great nation. That must be exhausting and lonely. You must feel caged. No wonder you spend so much time in the garden.
King George: In the garden, I am a regular man.
Queen Charlotte: Farmer George.
King George: Do not feel sorry for me. I do not know anything else. I've always been this. An exhibit instead of a person.
Queen Charlotte: You are a person to me. You can be a person with me. No more even days and odd days.
King George: We shall just have days.
King George: What is it?
Queen Charlotte: It is an even day, obviously.
King George: Well, we do not need to adhere to every even day.
Queen Charlotte: We do not.
King George: We did agree to even days.
Queen Charlotte: We did.
King George: The sooner you are with child, the sooner we can cease this... performance.
Queen Charlotte: Our duty will be done, and I will no longer have to view your face. Are you coming?
King George: Yes, because I would very much like to have the opportunity to no longer hear your voice.
King George (to Charlotte): There is something about the heavens. In this world we live in, where I'm given so much power and attention, it is good to remember I'm a bit of dust. I'm a small dot in the universe. It keeps one humble. Being king is a... hazard. My world has been made to revolve around me, and... It has made me... selfish.
