30 Day Movie Challenge

Day 8: A Movie You’ve Seen Countless Times

Ever After

I can quote the entire movie. In my sleep.

King Francis: You sir are restricted to the grounds.
Henry: Are you putting me under house arrest?
King Francis: Do not mock me, boy, for I am in a foul disposition. And I will have my way…
Henry: Or what? You’ll ship me off to the Americas like some criminal? All for the sake of your stupid contract?
King Francis: You are the Crown Prince of France!
Henry: And it is my life.
Queen Marie: Francis, sit down before you have a stroke. Really. the two of you.
[to Henry]
Queen Marie: Sweetheart… you were born to privilege and with that comes specific obligations.
Henry: Forgive me, Mother, but marriage to a complete stranger never made anyone in this room very happy.
King Francis: You will marry Gabriella by the next full moon or I will strike at you in any way I can.
Henry: What’s it to be, father, hot oil or the rack?
King Francis: I will simply deny you the crown and… live forever.
Henry: Good. Agreed. I don’t want it.
[Walks out]
King Francis: [to the Queen, frustrated] He’s your son.
