Aliena: My new palace!
Jack: Do you miss the old one?
Aliena: Oh, Lord no!… I miss my father and I miss the people I lived with. But I don’t miss the obligations or the pretensions. I certainly don’t miss my innocence or my ignorance, whatever it is you call it. I’m happy.
Jack: Well, you’ve earned it.
Aliena: Are you? Happy?
Jack: Am I happy… I think so. I think…Especially when I’m at work. When I work, I hear these voices…
Aliena: Whose? The voices of angels? Are you some kind of saint?

Jack: No, not the stone, but what it wants to be. So the saint or the gargoyle or the tiniest corner of the cathedral… It doesn’t even have to have a face.

Aliena: How very fortunate you are.

Aliena: …And this is?
Martha: That’s Jack. He doesn’t talk much, but look he made a likeness of me.
Aliena: It’s remarkable! Your brother is quite gifted.
Martha: Oh! He’s not my brother. Jack’s a bastard.
(Martha and Alfred laugh)
Aliena: He’s a gifted bastard. [and leaves]
