Quotes

Christabel LaMotte: I cannot let you burn me up, nor can I resist you. No mere human can stand in a fire and not be consumed.

Randolph Ash: You cut me, Madam.

Christabel LaMotte: I'm sorry. I only meant to scratch.

[first lines]

Randolph Ash: They say that women change. 'Tis so, but you are ever-constant in your changefulness. Like that still thread of falling river, one from source to last embrace, in the still pool ever-renewed and ever-moving on, from first to last, a myriad water-drops.

Roland Michell: So what are we gonna do now? We gonna try to beat'em to France, or - or are we just gonna stare at each other?

Maude: That is the question, isn't it?

Roland Michell: Mm-hmmm

Maude: I have another one for you.

Roland Michell: What's that?

Maude: What are you really doing here?

Roland Michell: Well, I uh - I needed to see your face. I just wanted to let you know that whatever happened at Whitby, which unfortunately was not much, is not because anything that you did. Not at all. I just didn't want to jump into something. I mean, I did and I do... want to. Badly. I just didn't want to mess this up. And I just want to see -

[clears throat]

Roland Michell: I want to see if there's an us in you and me. Would-Would you like that?

[Maude leans over and kisses Roland]

Roland Michell: I'll take that as a yes.

Maude: [the morning after they hooked up which Roland put a stop to] Okay, let's not beat the thing dead. It happened. We're both grown-ups...

Roland Michell: Speak for yourself.

Maude: I'd hate to see how you're like after you actually sleep with someone.

Fergus: Mitchell's late again?

Blackadder: ROLAND, asked for another day off, Fergus.

Fergus: Oh, really? Where's he gone?

Blackadder: I didn't ask, and he didn't say. He's an American for God's sake. He's probably off trafficking drugs.

[to Roland the morning after their first night together, and first kiss]

Maude: I can't imagine what you're like after you actually sleep with someone!

Christabel LaMotte: Your hands are shaking. Are you afraid?

Randolph Ash: No... a little.

Roland Michell: Don't worry about me. I'm kind of a brush and flush kinda guy.

[seeing Maude's repulsed expression]

Roland Michell: Forget I said that.

Maude: I'll try.

Maude: [they are standing on rocks in a river looking at a waterfall that Maude recalls in one of Christabell's poems that describes a cave behind the waterfall. Upon sharing that with Roland, he immediately starts taking his clothes off] I know this is an awfully repressed sort of English thing to say, but what the hell are you doing?

Roland Michell: How else are we going to find out if there's a cave?

[Dives into the water]

Maude: [smiling, and speaking to no one] We could ask someone.

Roland Michell: There's no such thing as poets anymore.

Roland Michell: What do you charge an hour? Roughly.

Fergus: Oh uh, I don't know, 500.

Roland Michell: Pounds?

Fergus: Mm.

Roland Michell: Jesus! No wonder you have a nice hallway.

Fergus: Thank you.

Roland Michell: Okay, I want to buy 7 minutes of attorney-client privilege, right now.
