: Mr Brown. John Brown
: Yes, ma'am. Queen Victoria
: You have been told repeatedly not to stand in the courtyard unless requested to do so. John Brown
: Yes, ma'am. Queen Victoria
: Then why do you persist in doing it? John Brown
: Because I think Her Majesty is wrong. If ever there was a poor soul who needed fresh air, it is her. Queen Victoria
: The Queen will ride out if and when she chooses. John Brown
: And I intend to be there when she's ready.

: Don't think I can't persuade her.
: Duty? You talk about duty? John Brown
: If duty and safety are served by the same end then, aye, I do. Queen Victoria
: I cannot believe you are saying this? You, who I have relied on all this time. John Brown
: Have I ever let you down before? Queen Victoria
: You stand there and tell me it is my duty. After all you promised me! John Brown
: I'm breaking no promises! Queen Victoria
: You are forcing me to do the very thing you know I fear most! John Brown
: For god's sake, woman, I'm just trying to keep you safe! Queen Victoria
: I will not hear any more about my safety! You made me a promise and now you have broken it! John Brown
: When I took you out riding, come rain or shine, because I knew it was right for you, when I kept the bairns off your back so you could have a bit of peace, when I saw you safe from home to home and you didn't even knowI was there. All I've ever thought about is you! Queen Victoria
: Then why send me back to them? John Brown
: Because I have to! Will you no listen to me, woman? Queen Victoria
: Do not presume to talk to your Queen in that manner.
