Cleopatra (1963)
[Seducing Caesar]
Cleopatra: A woman too must make the barren land fruitful. She must make life grow where there was no life. Just as the Mother Nile feeds and replenishes the Earth, I am the Nile. I will bear many sons. Isis has told me. My breasts are full of love and life. My hips are rounded and well apart. Such women, they say, have sons.

Cleopatra: You come before me as a suppliant.
Antony: If you choose to regard me as such.
Cleopatra: I do. You will therefore assume the position of a suppliant before this throne. You will kneel.
Antony: I will *what*?
Cleopatra: On-your-knees!
Antony: You dare ask the Proconsul of the Roman Empire?
Cleopatra: I *asked* it of Julius Caesar. I *demand* it of you!

Cleopatra: The way to prevent war is to be ready for it!
Sosigenes: Have 300 warships ever been built for war without war?

Julius Caesar: Ah, yes. I seem to recall some mention of an obsession you have about your divinity... Isis, is it not?
Cleopatra: I shall have to insist that you mind what you say. I AM Isis. I am worshipped by millions who believe it. You are not to confuse what I am with the so-called divine origin which every Roman general seems to acquire together with his shield. It was, uh, Venus you chose to be descended from, wasn't it?

Cleopatra: How DARE you and the rest of your barbarians set fire to my library! Play conqueror all you want, Mighty Caesar! Rape, murder, pillage thousands, even millions of human beings! But neither you nor any other barbarian has the right to destroy one human thought!

Cleopatra: I will not be told where I can go and where I cannot go!

Cleopatra: There are never enough hours in the days of a queen, and her nights have too many.

Julius Caesar: Germanicus! A guard to escort Queen Cleopatra to her apartments.
Germanicus: Guard!
Cleopatra: The corridors are dark gentlemen, but you mustn't be afraid. I am with you.

Cleopatra: Catullus doesn't approve of you. Why haven't you had him killed?
Julius Caesar: Because *I* approve of *him.*

Cleopatra: [admiring his armor] And I find what you're wearing most becoming. Greek, isn't it?
Antony: I have a fondness for almost all Greek things.
Cleopatra: [referring to her Macedonian ancestry] As an almost all-Greek thing, I'm flattered.

Antony: What has angered you? That I dealt with Octavian however I could, or that I married his sister to do it? Jealousy or politics, which?
Cleopatra: Both! And damn you for not understanding either!
Antony: It would not occur to me to look to you for instruction.
Cleopatra: Which is why you have come back chained to Octavian like a slave. And with such an exquisite set of chains. So softly spoken, so virtuous! She sleeps, I hear, fully-clothed!

Cleopatra: [Kicks cushion from throne to Caesar, to get him to kneel] You have such bony knees.

Flavius: I've always loved you.
Cleopatra: And I have always known.

[as they begin eating on Cleopatra's barge]
Marc Antony: Fabulous feast.
Cleopatra: One is so limited when one travels by ship.

Cleopatra: [as Marc Antony and his men begin walking out of the throne room without saying anything]
Cleopatra: [loud] You have not been dismissed!
Cleopatra: [Marc Antony and his men stop and face Cleopatra]
Cleopatra: [quiet] You are now... dismissed.

Cleopatra (1934)
Cleopatra: Together we could conquer the world.
Julius Caesar: Nice of you to include me.

Cleopatra: It's not the Senate I'm worried about but their fat wives. Do you know anything about senators, Charmion?
Charmion: Well, we only got here yesterday, Majesty.

Marc Antony: I said things to Caesar I wish I hadn't.
Cleopatra: Oh?
Marc Antony: There's beauty in the Egyptian queen besides her face. Do you miss him?
Cleopatra: No, he didn't love me.
Marc Antony: Is that really the reason?
Cleopatra: No, not really. I admire men who don't love women.
Marc Antony: What do you mean by that?
Cleopatra: Oh, I don't know. Women should be but toys for the great. It becomes them both.

Cleopatra: So Rome would forgive and take you back? And all they demand is for us to part. Why don't they ask the sun to fall right out of the sky?

Cleopatra: Queens don't hiccup.

Cleopatra: [last line, to Charmion and Iras] Look well for love. Look well. And not finding it, give nothing. But if blessed with Cleopatra's fortune, give all. Now, go.

Cleopatra: It seems strange to see you working. I've always pictured you either fighting or loving.
Julius Caesar: Well, I have had some experience with fighting.
Cleopatra: But none with loving, I suppose.
Julius Caesar: Well, none with pretty little queens.

Cleopatra: I had to walk miles across the desert to the sea... to find the fishing boat that brought me to you. But just seeing you is magic, immortal Caesar.
Julius Caesar: That's quite a speech. Your tongue is no longer bewitched by Caesar, eh?
Cleopatra: No. It's my heart now.

Cleopatra: Bunkbeds Abe! Think! Ugh!
Cleopatra: [Cleo flings her false eyelashes at Joan and they stick in the wall beside Joan's head] YANKEE GO HOME!
Abe: I think what Cleo is trying to say is that she would be more respectful of Joan if she...
Joan of Arc: DIE DIXIE SLUT!
Abe: I think Joan brings a good arguement to the table.
[Joan and Cleo continue to throw things at each other]
Abe: That's it Joan in the north and Cleo in the south hear me when I say a bedroom divided cannot stand on its own.

Abe: [laughs] Ho! Ho! Ho!

Abe: [laughs] Ho! Ho! Ho!
