Don Juan: [to Queen Margaret] Like most other men there has always been an imaginary woman in my life. I endow her with all the virtues, I clothe her in perfection. Naturally I search for her in vain. I thought she could never exist except in my mind. Now I find out she does.

Don Juan: All my life I seem to have been stumbling around as if in darkness. I am no longer.

Queen Margaret: Silence! You have no right to speak to me that way. I forbid you.

Don Juan: But I would never have spoken except by your command.

Queen Margaret: Then I was wrong to command you. Wrong to believe that you could reform. Or that friendship and loyalty could ever replace your desire for another conquest.

Don Juan: It seems to me Your Grace is preparing for war.

Duke de Lorca: Does the idea frighten you?

Don Juan: Frankly it does. I'm by nature a peaceful man, Your Grace. It's true I've done some fighting in my time, but it's usually been for something worthwhile like, uh, a beautiful woman. To risk your skin for a piece of extra ground - that is terrifying!

Duke de Lorca: You can see we have several interesting devices in this chamber. They have the tendency to break a man's will. If the first one fails, we try another until we find exactly the right one to loosen the tongue.

Count de Polan: I've heard of men whose tongues have withstood it.

Duke de Lorca: Yes, but they now speak with the tongues of angels.

Duke de Lorca: Tell me, Don Juan, do you hire men to spread the words of your romantic conquests.

Don Juan: No, Your Excellency, that's a service that's always been done for me free of charge.

Duke de Lorca: You have a ready tongue. It's a pity it's been used in such idle pursuits.

Don Juan: A matter of opinion, Your Grace. Some men prefer the conquest of beauty to the conquest of the throne.
