Yusuf: I am a servant who has but one function.
Marco Polo: Which is?
Yusuf: I speak truth. It is this respect I show my Khan. My days are driven by this alone. How do I best serve Kublai and his kingdom? There is clarity in service but you lack this.
Marco Polo: Yet here we are.
Yusuf: Yet here we are.
Tulga: My Lady, they are upon us!
Kokachin: The Khan has come. Run for the desert.
ChangYang: Lady Kokachin! You're protected by your blood. They will not harm you.
Kokachin: Harm me? No. Take me into Kublai's harem? Yes.
[unsheathes her dagger]
ChangYang: Is it not better than death?
Kokachin: No, Nergui. To live under the yoke of a Khan is not better than the Eternal Blue.
ChangYang: [gasps] Lady Kokachin!
Prince Jingim: Good New Year to you, brother.
Byamba: I worry when you call me brother instead of bastard. It precedes a request.
Prince Jingim: [chuckles] I need not request. I order.
Byamba: I await your command, Jingim Khan...
Empress Chabi: [sarcastically] 'Tis a powerful man who injures little children.
Lin Lin: I miss my mother.
Jia Sidao: We all do, Sunflower but I've arranged to speed her journey. Now look away, child.
[tightens foot bindings]
Lin Lin: [whimpering]
Yusuf: My suspicion of Marco has waned, but for now. To be safe, those whom lack your trust, kill.
Kublai Khan: There would be few left living if I heed that counsel. Should I trust *you*, Yusuf?
Prince Jingim: You slayed Ariq single-handedly.
Kublai Khan: Why was that necessary? Why did my brother challenge me? He saw me as weak. Despite what I did, people still rumor of my decline and they worry for succession.
Prince Jingim: The line is clear.
Kublai Khan: But not guaranteed, Jingim.
