Victoria and Abdul

Continuity mistake: When the soup is about to be served, you see the horns blowing to introduce Victoria, and you can see all of the footmen lined up already with trays of soup, but in the next shot, it shows that they are just starting to march in to line up with their trays of soup. (00:10:45)


Queen Victoria: I am 81 years of age. I've had nine children and 42 grandchildren, and have almost a billion citizens. I have rheumatism, a collapsed uterus, I'm morbidly obese and deaf in one ear. I have known 11 Prime Ministers and passed 2,347 pieces of legislation. I've been in office 62 years, 234 days. Thus, I am the longest-serving monarch in world history. I'm responsible for five households and a staff of over 3,000. I am cantankerous, boring, greedy, fat, ill-tempered, at times selfish and myopic, both metaphorically and literally. I am perhaps disagreeably attached to power and should not have smashed the Emperor of Russia's egg. But I am anything but insane. If the household wish to disobey me, so be it. Let them do it to my face. I will see everyone in the Durbar Room at once.

Queen Victoria: Everyone I love has died and I just go on and on. What is the point?
Abdul Karim: Service, Your Majesty. We are here for a greater purpose.

Dr. Reid: I did not do seven years at Edinburgh University to look at Indian dicks.
