The Man in the Iron Mask
Movie Quote Quiz

King Louis XIV: There is more of me to love than a crown.

2

Louis: The next time there are rioters, shoot them.

Aramis: Athos, if we fail in this - and we probably will - it will be an honor to die beside you.

Louis: D'Artagnan, you will hunt down Porthos, Athos, and Aramis, and bring me their heads, or I will have yours. And as for you, my brother, back to the prison you will go, and into the mask you hate. Wear it 'til you love it! And die in it.

Porthos: Stop praying and revel with me, Aramis! I need my spirits lifted. I'm old, I'm weak, my strength is gone.
Aramis: Porthos! I'm praying.
Porthos: I just said you're praying. Are you deaf, too? I know you're blind, because if you'd seen the tits that just walked out of here, you'd have tears in your eyes.

Athos: What gives you the right to judge me, to play God with the lives of others? Is it because you're so much holier than everyone else?
Aramis: Well yes, there is that. But also because I'm more intelligent than anybody else.

Aramis: I have prayed every day for forgiveness. But now I realise that forgiveness must come from you before it can come from God.

Louis: Of all the wonders I have seen, I've never looked upon anything as beautiful as you.

Aramis: Porthos... don't you understand? I'm trying to pray.
Porthos: You're always praying.

Louis: You think my affairs are empty.
D'Artagnan: I think that it is possible for one man to love one woman all his life and be the better for it, yes.

Athos: It has everything to do with it. The king is a dog. A dog and a coward.

D'Artagnan: No. If anyone sees... it is death.
Queen Anne: If I don't kiss you, I'll die anyway.

Athos: You want me to do the impossible and you want me to do it alone?

Lt. Andre: All my life, all I ever wanted to be was him.

Athos: The next time we meet, one of us will die.

Christine: I shall burn in Hell. So will you.
King Louis XIV: No, no my love. You shall burn in hell. But not. For I am King... ordained by God.

Phillippe: I wear the mask. It does not wear me.

D'Artagnan: Anne, I know that to love you is a treason against France, but not to love you is a treason against my heart.
Queen Anne: Then we will both die traitors, D'Artagnan.

Phillippe: You were the one in the mask.

Aramis: The King has ordered me to seek out the secret general of the Jesuits and kill him.
Porthos: You should let the secret general worry about that.
Aramis: Therein is the problem. I am he. I am the general of the order of Jesuits.

Audio problem: In the Bastille dungeon just after Phillippe knocked out the guard with the key we hear Athos say 'We feared the mask would destroy you', but his lips do not move in sync with this. It looks more like he originally said 'We thought you were dead'. (01:44:54)

Question: I don't know anything about identical twins, so this is why I'm asking this question: how likely is it that Louis and Phillipe would have the exact same speech pattern?

Answer: There would be both genetic similarities and individual differences, and their vocabularies would have developed differently by education and experience. However, Phillipe was heavily tutored before the switch took place, and as "king" he would be able to distance himself (physically, mentally, and emotionally) as much as needed from members of his court until he perfected his role, along with the continued help from those in on the deception. Also, the audience and readers of the novel are expected to employ a certain "suspension of disbelief" in order to allow the story to be told.
