Quotes from the Movie Anastasia 1997

There was a time, not very long ago, when we lived in an enchanted world of elegant palaces and grand parties. The year was ninteen hundred and sixteen and my son Nicholas was the Czar of Imperial Russia. We were celebrating the 300th anniversary of our family's rule. And, that night, no star burned brighter than that of our sweet Anastasia, my youngest granddaughter. She begged me not to return to Paris, so I had a very special gift made for her, to make the seperation easier for both of us.

Dowager Empress Marie

But we would never be together in Paris, for a dark shadow had descended upon the house of the Romanovs. His name was Rasputin. We thought he was a holy man, but he was a fraud, power-mad and dangerous.

Dowager Empress Marie

So many lives were destroyed that night. What had always been was now gone for ever. And my Anastasia, my beloved grandchild, I never saw her again.

Dowager Empress Marie

That's it, Dimitri. Game over. Our last kopeck gone to this flea-infested theatre and still no girl to pretend to be Anastasia.

Vladimir

We'll find her, Vlad. She's here somewhere, right under our noses. Don't forget, one look at this jewellery box and the Empress will think we've brought the real Anastasia.

Dimitri

Dimitri, do you really think I'm royalty?

Anastasia

You know I do.

Dimitri

Then stop bossing me around!

Anastasia

I think you broke my nose.

Dimitri

Men are such babies.

Anastasia

Well, nobody gets near the Dowager Empress without convincing Sophie first.

Dimitri

Oh no, not me... nope! No... nobody ever told me I had to prove I was the Grand Duchess!

Anastasia

Look, I...

Dimitri

Show up, yes. Look nice, fine. But lie?

Anastasia

You don't know it's a lie. What if it's true?

Dimitri

No, no. No, you don't know. I was the boy in the palace. The one who opened the wall. She's the real thing, Vlad.

Dimitri

That means our Anya has found her family. We have found the heir to the Russian throne. And you...

Vladimir

Will walk out of her life forever.

Dimitri

But...

Vladimir

Princesses don't marry kitchen boys.

Dimitri

Where did you get this?

Dowager Empress Marie

I know you've been hurt, but it's just possible she's been as lost and alone as you.

Dimitri

You'll stop at nothing, will you?

Dowager Empress Marie

I'm probably about as stubborn as you are.

Dimitri
