Doctor: Mental suicide?
Edmond Dantes: Yes. He destroyed his mind with an overdose of two deadly poisons.
Edmond Dantes: Avarice and Greed
Countess Alexandra Vladinoff: [Asking about a bribe] And all he wanted was your wristwatch?
Ainsley J. Fothergill aka Peter Ouronov: [Rhetorically] Well, what use is a wristwatch when trains are to be a week late?
Edmond Dantes: Please believe I've put my task above the mean level of personal vengeance. I am exposing criminals, not for their sins against myself but for their black injustices to others... not only for what they have done but for what they continue to do. They are the ones devoid of all humanity, the ones that profitted by the sufferings of others.

Edmond Dantes: [pause, then] I claimed him long ago, Mercedes.
