Violet Bridgerton Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Violet Bridgerton: Oh, you do not look well. Was it you I heard lumbering in the hallway late last night?

Colin Bridgerton: I am... well.

Violet Bridgerton: You know... you have always been one of my most sensitive children. Always aware of what others need. Always trying to be helpful or offering a joke to lighten the mood. You so rarely put yourself first. I am proud of your sensitivity. But living to please others? I imagine it can be wearying at times. Painful, perhaps. So, I do not blame you for putting on armor lately. But you must be careful that the armor does not rust and set so that you might never be able to take it off.

John Stirling: May I join you a moment?

Francesca Bridgerton: I should like that.

(They sit next to each other, smiling, rest of the Bridgertons watching them from afar...)

Gregory Bridgerton: She does not speak to him.

Eloise Bridgerton: I am in awe. I thought one had to use wit or banter to dissuade a suitor. But simple silence is radically more effective.

Hyacinth Bridgerton: Perhaps they are enjoying themselves.

Violet Bridgerton: But how will they know each other if they do not speak?

Colin Bridgerton: As you consider suitable matches for Francesca, what do you hope she finds?

Violet Bridgerton: I... wish for Francesca the same thing I wanted for myself, for Anthony, for Daphne. Passion, excitement, a love that is thrilling.

Colin Bridgerton: But I thought you believed the best foundation for great love was friendship.

Violet Bridgerton: Indeed, I do. It is how your father and I began. But it is rare to begin as friends and for both parties to then feel more.

Colin Bridgerton: Mm. And how did you and Father know it was reciprocated?

Violet Bridgerton: Because he gathered the courage to ask.

(Colin looks Pen's way, Violet notices...)

Colin Bridgerton: Uh... Well... I hope if Francesca finds it, she is brave enough to ask the question.

Violet Bridgerton: I hope she is as well.

Violet Bridgerton: Did you enjoy your first ball?

Francesca Bridgerton: It was... satisfactory.

Violet Bridgerton: My dear, think of the balls as playing a duet. When you play with another person, there is a certain vulnerability which can be quite frightening, I would imagine. But it is worth it once you find that person with whom you make an unexpected harmony.

Francesca Bridgerton: I woke up early. Got dressed. Took breakfast in the garden. Because it is just another day. Shall we go? (leaves the room)

Anthony Bridgerton (to Violet): Perhaps we do not need to worry so much.

Benedict Bridgerton (to Violet): You do realize what tune she was playing just now, don't you? Mozart's "Funeral March."

Violet Bridgerton: Oh God.

Violet Bridgerton: It is my husband's birthday today. Was. Would be. Would have been. Edmund's birthday would've been today. I'm so sorry.

Lady Danbury: Why are you sorry?

Violet Bridgerton: He liked his birthday. He liked to celebrate, and I would make him hats. Out of paper. The kind of hats that had been made for me when I was a child. My father made me these birthday hats, and no one had ever done that for him, so I did it. I gave him childish birthdays, and... they made him so happy. I constructed these... oh, elaborate, wonderful hats, and he would wear them the entire day. He looked ridiculous in them. And we would laugh... I do not like today. It reminds me that there are no hats to make.

Lady Danbury: You are most fortunate.

Violet Bridgerton: Fortunate?

Lady Danbury: Yes.

Violet Bridgerton: I fear I must have misheard you. I am... I am fortunate?

Lady Danbury: You may not like today. But trust me. You are most fortunate.

Violet Bridgerton: Marriage offers so much. Companionship. Tradition. Family. Warmth. And if they take the time to become close, well, a match does not have to start out as love. It can grow. Love can bloom from the thorniest of gardens, can it not?

Lady Danbury: Blooming love...

Queen Charlotte: Your flower metaphors make me nauseated with their sweetness, but I applaud your point.

Queen Charlotte: You have had two weddings in two years. How do you do it?

Violet Bridgerton: Uh, do... Do what?

Queen Charlotte: Get them to want to marry.

Violet Bridgerton: Well... It helps if they are in love.

Queen Charlotte: Love?

Violet Bridgerton: Yes. Love solves a plethora of issues.

Queen Charlotte: I'm going to speak plainly because we are all mature women here. My boys are in love. They are in love with commoners. They are in love with Catholics, and they are in love with actresses. And they are in love with women who are already married. Love is not the issue. Love has produced over 50 illegitimate babies for the Crown.

Violet Bridgerton (to Anthony): Losing Edmund was the most difficult time of my life. And the pain that I felt... beyond description. But there is one thing that has given me at least some modicum of solace. It's knowing that I would still choose the life I led with him, each and every time. And I would undoubtedly feel the same pain I felt all over again if I had to because real, true love is worth it. No matter what.

(Colin is hangover and grumpy...)

Violet Bridgerton (to Benedict): Whatever you have done to your brother, undo it.

Colin Bridgerton: I may never reach your capacity for drink, Brother.

Benedict Bridgerton: It's a simple remedy. If you continue to drink, there can be no after-effects.

Eloise Bridgerton: If only you would use your powers for good.

Daphne Basset: I've always imagined Anthony to be with someone more like him.

Violet Bridgerton: Sharp, quick, a little too exacting?

Daphne Basset: You know, every time I think my marriage has become simple, Simon and I find some new stone to turn over, a new foible that one of us needs the other to tease out and inspect. It is decidedly irritating. (Violet laughs) Yet incredibly gratifying at the same time. Miss Edwina is nearly perfect, but Anthony is a Bridgerton. Is there not something in all of us that requires a challenge?

Violet Bridgerton: Indeed, there is.

(Flashback to the time after Edmund's death)

Violet Bridgerton (to Anthony): This is it. This is my best. I am doing my best. Every day, I get up, I get dressed, I feed myself, I try to breathe in and out. I force myself to stop by the nursery. And I think about how sorry I feel for little baby Hyacinth because she will never know Edmund's laugh. Or the way he smelled, or what it is to be hugged in his arms. I feel even sorrier for myself because, most of the time, all I am thinking is that this little baby did not do me the kindness of killing me so that I could be with my husband. Edmund was the air that I breathed. And now there is no air.

Hyacinth Bridgerton: I think Eloise would make a brilliant diamond.

Violet Bridgerton: I could not agree more, Hyacinth. Perhaps Her Majesty will take note at her ball tomorrow night.

Eloise Bridgerton (to Hyacinth): I despise you.

(Violet and Hyacinth laugh)

Kate Sharma: What is clear is we are woefully unprepared to navigate this lion's den. I am sure Edwina's absence will only make her that much more desirable.

Edwina Sharma: It truly was a magnificent soiree, Lady Danbury. We are most grateful.

(Kate and Edwina leave)

Violet Bridgerton: Well, it would seem both of us may have our hands full this year.

Lady Danbury: Not if I have something to say about it. And as you very well know, I always have something to say.

Violet Bridgerton is a character from Bridgerton
