Louis XIV: You look pale, Prince. Are you ill?
Prince de Condé: Your Majesty is gracious to enquire.
Louis XIV: Yes.
Gourville: [of Anne de Montausier] She's new at court, she's still got a heart.
Gourville: [Condé is gambling with the King] Is the Prince losing his chateau?
Marquis de Lauzun: Not if he plays his cards wrong.
Louis XIV: Peace with the Dutch is good for nothing, except tulips.
Marquis de Lauzun: The king sends you his complements. And he begs the favor of taking a cup of chocolate with you in your room at midnight.
Anne de Montausier: With me?
Marquis de Lauzun: [into her ear] May I offer you my congratulations. Although, as you can imagine, that came as a great blow to me. After tonight I cannot hope for deliverance from the pain of my own desires. So, may I suggest my rooms at ten?
Anne de Montausier: Alas, monsieur, ten o'clock I have an even more attractive offer. Her Majesty has asked me to delouse her spaniel.
