Ever After: A Cinderella Story (1998) Poster

Patrick Godfrey: Leonardo



  • Henry : Do you really think there is only one perfect mate?

    Leonardo da Vinci : As a matter of fact, I do.

    Henry : Well then how can you be certain to find them? And if you do find them, are they really the one for you or do you only think they are? And what happens if the person you're supposed to be with never appears, or, or she does, but you're too distracted to notice?

    Leonardo da Vinci : You learn to pay attention.

    Henry : Then let's say God puts two people on Earth and they are lucky enough to find one another. But one of them gets hit by lightning. Well then what? Is that it? Or, perchance, you meet someone new and marry all over again. Is that the lady you're supposed to be with or was it the first? And if so, when the two of them were walking side by side were they both the one for you and you just happened to meet the first one first or, was the second one supposed to be first? And is everything just chance or are some things meant to be?

  • Leonardo da Vinci : You cannot leave everything to fate, boy. She's got a lot to do. Sometimes you must give her a hand.

  • Danielle : A bird may love a fish, signore, but where will they live?

    Leonardo da Vinci : Then I shall have to make you wings.

  • [after da Vinci opens a locked door by removing the pins from the hinges] 

    Louise : Why, that was pure genius!

    Leonardo da Vinci : Yes! I shall go down in history as the man who opened a door!

  • Henry : I have been born to privilege, and with that comes specific obligations.

    Leonardo da Vinci : Horseshit.

  • Danielle : Signore, my name is Danielle de Barbarac, and I am but a servant.

    Leonardo da Vinci : Yes, and I'm the bastard son of a peasant. What does that have to do with anything?

  • Henry : What do you know? You build flying machines and you walk on water, and yet you know *nothing* about life!

    Leonardo da Vinci : I know that a life without love is no life at all.

    Henry : And love without trust? What of that?

  • Danielle : A bird may love a fish, Signore, but where would they live?

    Leonardo da Vinci : Then I shall just have to build you wings!

  • Leonardo da Vinci : Come, let's see these paintings of yours.

    Gustav : Now?

    Leonardo da Vinci : When you're as old as I am, son, now is all you've got.

  • Henry : You told me it was a matter of life or death.

    Leonardo da Vinci : [unrolling the Mona Lisa]  A woman always is, sire.

  • Leonardo da Vinci : I shall leave walking on water to the Son of God. Fortunately I tripped over an angel.
