Athos edit

  • To die among friends. Can a man ask more? Can the world offer less? Who wants to live 'till the last bottle is empty? It's all-for one, d'Artagnan, and one for all.
  • This was my family's chapel, Charlotte. You'll remember we took our vows here. I loved you, Charlotte. I still love you. I love you as I love war and drunkenness. I love you as men love all that is worst for them.

Richelieu edit

  • It takes a good man to prevent a catastrophe, Milady, and a great man to make use of one.

The Duke of Buckingham edit

  • [to the queen] England is mine, France shall be mine, and you shall be mine.

Constance Bonacieux edit

  • Whatever my reputation or my D'Artagnan's, I don't take love lightly.

Dialogue edit

Aramis: Now tell me, do I look like a man who spends his time with the ladies?
D'Artagnan: Well, if you don't, sir, then Paris must echo with the ladies' sighs.
Aramis: That's not what I asked you! These gentlemen insist that I waste my time with the ladies!
D'Artagnan: I can not concede, sir, that in the company of a lady you'd waste a single moment!

Jussac: [while dueling] Why don't you use your right hand, Athos?
Athos: I save my right hand for my drinking.

Constance Bonacieux: Oh monsieur! Monsieur, you come from the heavens.
D'Artagnan: No mademoiselle, just from upstairs.
D'Artagnan: I come from the end of the earth to implore you.
Constance Bonacieux: I thought you said you came from upstairs.

D'Artagnan: I kissed the Queen's hand!
Constance Bonacieux: Have you no higher ambitions?

Lady de Winter: But, your grace, how can you trust me with such a confidence? What if I refuse to go to England?
Richelieu: Can there be anybody more trustworthy, Milady, than an ambitious woman of fashion... with a history?

D'Artagnan: Porthos, when did a wound ever come between you and a fight?
Porthos: [lying on his stomach] Well, unfortunately the position of this one comes between me and my horse.
