Jeanne: Whore! Strumpet! Hypocrite! You tell me you have no vocation? Of course you have a vocation! Fornicator! Fornicator! Sacrilegious bitch! Seducer of priest, that's your calling! Your place is in a brothel. You filthy whore! Get back to the gutter where you belong!
Barre: [about to burn Grandier at the stake] Confess you are the Devil's servant! Renounce your master!
Grandier: I am about to meet the God who is my witness! And I have spoken the truth!
Barre: [brandishing the flaming torch and moving closer to Grandier] Confess! Confess! You have only a moment to live!
Grandier: Only a moment, but then I face the just and fearful judgment that you too, reverend father, will soon be called.
Barre: [starting the fire] May your body be consumed by eternal fire!
Grandier: Call me vain and proud, the greatest sinner ever to walk God's earth, but Satan's boy I could never be. I haven't the humility.
Grandier: What fresh lunacy is this? A crocodile?
Grandier: Lies! Lies and heresy. The Devil is a liar, and the father of lies. If the Devil's evidence is to be accepted, the most virtuous people are in the greatest of danger, for it against these that Satan rages most violently. I had never set eyes on Sister Jeanne of the Angels until the day of my arrest, but the Devil has spoken, and to doubt his word is sacrilege.
Grandier: [Talking about Jeanne] Anything found in the desert of a frustrated life can bring hope. With hope comes love. With love comes hate. So I possess her. May God help her in her misery and unhappiness.
Barre: Sin can be caught as easily as the plague.
Jeanne: Oh, Christ, let me find a way to you. Take me in your sacred arms. Let the blood flow between us uniting us. (moans) Grandier. Grandier!
Baron De Laubardemont: I also have a maxim, father: give me three lines of a man's handwriting and I will hang him.
Barre: [to Sister Jeanne] My dear sister in Christ, I must question you.
Madeleine: St Paul says that he who marries does a good thing, but he who remains chaste does something better.
Grandier: Then I am content to do a good thing and leave the best to those that can face it.
Spectators: Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!
[Mignon gives Grandier the kiss of peace]
Spectators: Judas! Judas! Judas! Judas!
Baron De Laubardemont: Hell will hold no surprises for you.
Barre: [blessing the torture instruments with holy water] We humbly beg of thee almighty God, in thy goodness, bless these instuments thou has created and given to us for our sacred use...
Grandier: Devils in pieces of wood now, Barre?
Barre: [pouring holy water on Grandier's legs] If they are not driven out, your devils might, by their infernal arts, prevent the torture being as excruciating as it should be. Then you would never confess, and your soul would be damned for eternity. Are you ready to confess?
Grandier: I have been a man. I have loved women. I have enjoyed power.
Barre: That's not what we want. You've been a magician. You've had commerce with devils!
Barre: [after having Grandier dragged through the streets following his torture, they arrive at the Convent where Grandier is to beg forgiveness] Get up.
Grandier: What is this place?
Barre: The Convent of St Ursulla, a place you have defiled. Do what must be done. [he tips Gradier off the stretcher he is on]
Jeanne: Satan is ever ready to seduce us with sensual delights.
Grandier: [in bed with young woman] Your father sends you here for instruction in Latin.
Baron De Laubardemont: Good morning! Did you sleep well?
Grandier: With all this noise?
Baron De Laubardemont: There are thousands of them out there. Where do you expect them to get all the beds from? Besides, they're all too excited.
Grandier: About what?
Baron De Laubardemont: Oh... [pretends to have forgotten for a moment] Your execution.
Grandier: I have not been tried yet.
Baron De Laubardemont: All right, have it your own way. Your trial then. [immediately after, a soldier smashes a statue]
Grandier: My lords, I am innocent of the charges. And I am afraid. But I have the hope in my heart that, before this day ends, Almighty God will glance aside and let my suffering atone for my vain and disordered life. Amen.
Cardinal Richelieu: A most original conception, your Majesty, The Birth of Venus. I pray I may assist you in the birth of a new France, where Church and State are one. [He holds out his hand to Louis, who kisses his ring]
Cardinal Richelieu: [intoning] And may the Protestant be driven from our land...
