Rhéa I love you. I know this must come as a surprise, since all i have ever done is scorn you and degrade you and taunt you, but i have loved you for several hours now, and every second more. I thought an hour ago i loved you more than any woman has ever loved a man, but half an hour after that i knew that my previous love was nothing compared to what i felt then. But half an hour after that, my previous love was like a puddle compared to the high seas before a storm. Your eyes are like that. Did you know? well they are.

Ashley Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

I can't keep my head above water one minute to the next: it's not just the parties and the
goo-gooing with what's-her-name, [...] plus I've got a wife to
murder and a country to frame for it, plus I've got to get the war going once that's all happened, and all
this is stuff I've got to do myself. Here's what it all comes down to: I'm just swamped, Ty.

You are trying to kidnap what I have rightfully stolen, and I think it quite
ungentlemanly.

He couldn’t believe it. ‘Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches. If your love were—‘

‘I don’t understand the first one yet,’ Buttercup interrupted. She was starting to get very excited now. ‘Let me get this straight. Are you saying my love is the size of a grain of sand and yours is this other thing? Images just confuse me so—is this universal business of yours bigger than my sand?'"
