The King (Character)
from "To Play the King" (1993)
The King: How much does Bullerby have? What could he publish?
Francis Urquhart: Everything the Princess was able to tell him. A lot of it's heresay, of course. But I'd say there's enough to bring down the monarchy for good.
The King: Damn you, man! Is that what you want?
Francis Urquhart: No, sir, it is not what I want. And I think, I'm sure, in fact, I could persuade him to suppress the more sensitive items.
The King: The price being my silence and complicity, I suppose.
Francis Urquhart: You might see it in those terms.
The King: [pauses] All right, do your worst.
Francis Urquhart: I beg your pardon, sir?
The King: I don't think the people want any more muck-raking. I think the whole nation is sick to death of negative campaigning and dirty tricks. They want to be given hope, they want something positive. I want to show them there is an alternative, and I shall.
Francis Urquhart: You have given your word, sir.
