Michelle Benjamin: They're already starting to protest. You don't care what your people say about you?

King Silas Benjamin: A handful - grumbling at the press? No cause for alarm. A healthy exercising of the freedoms I'm pretty sure *I* gave them.

King Silas Benjamin: The people cannot have what they want at every turn; neither can you. That's the definition of governing - and parenting.

David Shepherd: I hate the idea of losing our home. I lost my father... my brother. I know a lot of you here lost people too. And it's natural to say they died for this land, and we're never giving it up.

[the protestors applaud]

David Shepherd: But I'd happily trade our farm to bring Dad or Eli back; lives are more important than livelihood. I think of all the other fathers and brothers who are gonna go on living because Silas ended the war, and it makes me love our king even more.

Rev. Ephram Samuels: William Cross, come to my congregation; now I really *have* seen everything.

William Cross: Silas *will* fall.

Rev. Ephram Samuels: ...That may be his fate... someday.

William Cross: Someday soon, maybe. And I wanna know, when that time comes, if you can set aside our differences, and do what is best for the people - like we did once when we were young, and saw a king in Silas.

Rev. Ephram Samuels: You and I did not make Silas king.

William Cross: Funny; I don't remember Him writing any checks.

King Silas Benjamin: You're offering to buy a ministry.

Katrina Ghent: And overpay.

King Silas Benjamin: Unlucky for you, there's no positions in my government for sale today; but I admire forthrightness. So I'm gonna pardon you for trying to bribe a sovereign while wet. Good day, Mrs. Ghent.

King Silas Benjamin: The people have the right to mock, scorn, criticize, and burn unflattering photographs in effigy until morning - but I will *not* have my country drawn back into war by opportunists or fanatics.

Thomasina: Sir - I have concerns... for your heart.

King Silas Benjamin: Doctor gave it a clean bill, just winter.

Thomasina: Not the function; the temperature. I fear it's gone cold... since Serenity, sir. Since you stopped going.

King Silas Benjamin: I know of no such place.

Thomasina: So it seems.

King Silas Benjamin: You have a point?

Thomasina: Without it... without *her*, you have *not* been yourself as... as I know you. What you spied sharply escapes notice; and what gave you pause, doesn't. And without the countervalence of warmth, you've grown mean, sir. And I don't know how to serve this cold Silas. And my duty is to protect the family.

King Silas Benjamin: Your words today, at the river.

Thomasina: Sir...

King Silas Benjamin: More than I ever heard you string together in a month. Now, you've been in my employ in this capacity for how long?

Thomasina: I don't keep count...

King Silas Benjamin: How long?

Thomasina: Ten years, eight months... some days.

King Silas Benjamin: Maybe it's time... for a promotion.
