Rasputin: We had a man in Pokrovskoe. He didn't wash or work. He lied, stole, cheated, drank, chased all the women. He was a sinner. Why, out of all men, did the Virgin come to him?

Tsarina Alexandra: [in tears] "I feel that I shall leave life before January the first. If any of your relatives have brought my death, then none of your family, none of your children, or relatives, will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. Brother will kill brother and there will be no nobles left in the country."

Tsarina Alexandra: At times I rather like it. Mending clothes, teaching classes, and quiet afternoons. I doze and daydream. I think about my life. I don't know what I did wrong. I'd feel better if I did.

Tsarina Alexandra: Think of it... Russian princesses doing an English play in French for an audience of Polish nobles... I hope somebody understands it.

It will be the greatest page in Russian history, the story of these weeks and days. And while your gone, don't worry over what you've left behind. I'm here. Lean on me; use me. I'm not wise or strong, but God will show me what to do.

Tsarina Alexandra: [about Alexandra spending all day with Alexei] My place is where I'm needed most.
Tsar Nicholas II: It must be hard to have so many people need you. I'll be patient. If I wait my turn will come.

The Czarina: I need you.
Prince Chegodieff: Yes, your Majesty.
The Czarina: I've injured you. But, I've injured Russia more.
Prince Chegodieff: Your Majesty, I know how much you love Russia. Everything in your heart, everything that you've done, you thought was for Russia's good.
The Czarina: My heart is broken. What are we to do?

The Czarina: This is another century, Igor. What you have done has put us back 20 years in the eyes of Europe.

The Czar: Igor!
Prince Chegodieff: The, eh, last Empress Germany gave us, Catherine, was usually called the Great.

The Czarina: Paul!
Prince Chegodieff: Majesty! Your lordship, look at him!
The Czarina: What's the matter with him?
Rasputin: Why, he's frightened, naturally. It's alright my boy, go to your mother. Don't be afraid. He won't hurt me.
Prince Chegodieff: Look at his eyes!
The Czarina: What's the matter with his eyes?
Rasputin: Is it because he wasn't glad to see you? What do you say to your mother, lordship?
The Czarevitch: I love you mamushka.
The Czarina: I love you darling.
