The King: I will simply deny you the crown and… [sputters] live forever! [wife facepalms]

God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?
Prince: Romeo slew him; he slew Mercutio.
Who now the price of his dear blood doth owe?
Montague: Not Romeo, Prince; he was Mercutio’s friend.
His fault concludes but what the law should end,
The life of Tybalt.
Prince: And for that offence
Immediately we do exile him hence.
Bear hence this body and attend our will.
Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.

DeWitt: I’m talking about a clean slate.
Caroline: You ever try to clean an actual slate? You always see what was on it before.
