: If we run away then all the unicorns of the world will remain prisoners forever except one. And she will grow old and die. Amalthea
: Everything dies! I want to die when you die.
[looks at Lir
: I'm no unicorn, no magical creature. I'm a woman, and I love you, Lir. Don't let him change me! Lir, I will not love you when I'm a unicorn. Prince Lir
: Amalthea, don't... Schmendrick
: Then let the quest end here! I don't think I could change you back, even if you wished it. Marry the prince, and live happily ever after. Amalthea
: Yes, that is my wish. Prince Lir
: No. My lady, I am a hero. Heroes know that things must happen when it is time for them to happen. A quest may not simply be abandoned; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever. A happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story. Molly Grue
: But what if there isn't a happy ending? Schmendrick
: There are no happy endings, because nothing ends. Molly Grue
: Schmendrick, let her stay the way she is. Let her be... Schmendrick
: That's not in the story. Lir know that, and so does she. Molly Grue
: You don't care! You don't care what happens to her or to the others, just so you're a real magician at last. You don't care-" Schmendrick
: Well I wish I didn't care! I wish to God I didn't care about anything but my magic! But I do! I do.
: I wish you would ask something of me. Almathea
: Drown out my dreams! Keep me from remembering whatever wants me to remember it!

[Lir is trying to compose a poem
] Prince Lir
: The lift of longing / The crash of loss / The bitterness of... cross? boss? moss? Damn!
: Unicorn, mermaid, sorceress... no name you could give her would surprise OR frighten me. I love whom I love. Schmendrick
: Well, that's a very nice sentiment, but when I change her back into her true self... Prince Lir
: I love whom I love.
] I've had time to write a book about the way you act and look, / But I haven't got a paragraph. / Words are always getting in my way. / Anyway, I love you. That's all I have to tell you. / That's all I've got to say. / And now I'd like to make a speech about the love that touches each, / But stumbling I would make you laugh. / I feel as though my tongue were made of clay. Anyway, I love you. That's all I have to tell you...
