Anthony Hopkins Quotes:

Prince Richard: So! The royal corkscrew finds ME twisted?


Prince Richard: I never heard a corpse complain of how it got so cold.


Prince Richard: I don't care what you offer Philip; I don't care what plans you make. I'll have the Aquitaine, and Alais, and the crown. I'll not give-up one to get the other; I won't trade-off Alais or the Aquitaine *to that walking pustule*! No, your loving son will not.
