Duke of Buckingham: [the Musketeers have unwittingly rescued the Duke of Buckingham from Richilieu's men] I could have managed on my own, but my thanks to you gentlemen anyway.

[quickly exits]

Porthos: [looks after him, then to Athos] Who was that?

Athos: I don't know, but he sounded a touch foreign to me. Didn't he?

Rochefort: [commenting on D'Artagnan's horse] Decidedly it is someone riding a buttercup. Unless it is a cheese with legs.

Aramis: Discretion is the better part of vanity.

Porthos: I don't understand. I know the one about valor, though I don't agree. I can't be discreet about how valiant I am, shouldn't be asked.

Treville: Your father says that you carry his old sword, M. D'Artagnan.

D'Artagnan: Yes.

Treville: [Clears his throat and extends his hand. D'Artagnan produces the sword, which has been broken off quite short] Oh. Do me the honor of taking one on loan until yours grows longer.

D'Artagnan: Sir, I ask charity of no one.

Treville: Then you aren't likely to get it, are you, young man?

[Softens tone]

Treville: No, not charity. Love and courtesy for the son of an old friend, to keep his enemies an inch or two further off.

Rochefort: I failed. One does occasionally.

Cardinal Richelieu: If I blundered as you do, my head would fall.

Rochefort: I would say from a greater height than mine, Eminence.

Cardinal Richelieu: You would?

Rochefort: The height of vaulting ambition.

Cardinal Richelieu: You have none?

Rochefort: No.

Cardinal Richelieu: Do you fear me, Rochefort?

Rochefort: Yes, I fear you, Eminence. I also hate you.

Cardinal Richelieu: I love you, my son. Even when you fail.

M. Bonancieux: The Bastille! Well, I tell you, I don't want to go to the Bastille! Because it's got very deep dungeons and terrible instruments of torture operated by very unsympathetic men! And they snip very important parts off people!

Duke of Buckingham: How can I ever repay you?

D'Artagnan: My Lord, let us understand one another. You are an Englishman and an enemy of France. You owe me no debt. What I have done, I've done for the Queen.

D'Artagnan: Oh, My - my darling, forgive me. I, uh, my lord, what can I say? I - I love her, and I was jealous.

Duke of Buckingham: A perfectly excellent reason for attacking a stranger in the dark. Would you oblige me in a small matter sir?

D'Artagnan: Anything, my Lord.

Duke of Buckingham: Madam and I are going to the palace. We must not be seen. If anyone should try to follow us, would you be good enough to kill him? Thank you.

Athos: [to d'Artagnan referring to the purse Porthos took from a member of the Cardinal's Guard] The Musketeers' motto, young man, is "All for One and One for All", which loosely translated means ten for him, ten for him, ten for you and ten for me.

Porthos: May one ask - delicately - the cause in which we're expected to die?

Aramis: When you go on a campaign, does the King give his reasons? He says, "Porthos, fight!" and you fight.

Porthos: Oh, I do, I do!

Aramis: Then let's go and be killed where we're told to! Is life worth so many questions?
