• Thalira: It's not like that on Peladon. The ruler is always a man. I was only crowned because my father had no son. It's Ortron who holds the real power.
  • Sarah: Well, only if you let him. You've just got to stand up for yourself.
  • Thalira: It would be different if I was a man. But I'm only a girl.
  • Sarah: Now just a minute. There's nothing only about being a girl, your Majesty. Never mind why they made you a Queen, the fact is you are the Queen, so just you jolly well let them know it.
