Latest quotes added:

Catherine: Let her speak freely, for that is what this school is about.

Velcra: Oh, dear me.

Catherine: Gosh, you have a turn of phrase.

Nadia: As do you, Empress, but we're thinking that's all you have.

Catherine: Right.

Peter (to Catherine): Would we not be happier if you just gave in to your savage longing and admitted your love for me wholeheartedly instead of clitty bitty?
