Lanselot Hamilton: Times were hard. They had all they could do to keep themselves fed...
Lanselot Tartaros: Nonsense. They chose to be victims! They think that only from without the castle walls may one voice discontent. Not realizing that the quickest way to the throne is a knife to the king's ribs.
Lanselot Hamilton: These people have the right to live out their own lives, not some part in a play of your design!
Lanselot Tartaros: You have both your eyes, and yet you see less clearly than do I. True freedom is not granted from above, it is won from below. And yet the commons look without for a savior, even as they claim sovereignty over their own fait! They wait and they wait for this savior, never taking that first step toward saving themselves.
Lanselot Hamilton: Man is not so slothful a creature as that.... They...merely lack our strength.
Lanselot Tartaros: You are much too pure of heart, Holy Knight. The people have no need of dreams. We give them all they need.
Lanselot Hamilton: And what is that, pray tell?
Lanselot Tartaros: A strong, unwavering ruler.
Lanselot Hamilton: You are mad.
