Dowager Empress: I will tell them that the play is over, now go home.
General Sergei Pavlovich Bounine: [to Petrovin] Would you recognize the smile of a girl you knew ten years ago?
Piotr Ivanovich Petrovin: I didn't think of that!
General Sergei Pavlovich Bounine: You're both fools! You're examining her as if she was the real Anastasia. There is no Anastasta! She was shot to death ten years ago by a firing squad. We're not looking for her, gentlemen. We're seeking only a reasonable facsimile.
Boris Adreivich Chernov: ...and that woman is too too something! Too crazy, too clever, too tricky!
General Sergei Pavlovich Bounine: I don't care what she is! The important thing is that she fits!
Dowager Empress: Lievenbaum, your voluptuous fantasies are disgusting! To a woman of your age, sex should mean nothing but gender!
Baroness Elena von Livenbaum: A village. This is positively a village. I am all of Chekov's three sisters rolled into one!
