Victoria and Abdul
Movie Quote Quiz

Abdul Karim: Listen, little drop, give yourself up without regret and in return you will gain the ocean. Give yourself away and in the great sea you will be secure.

Queen Victoria: I am 81 years of age. I've had nine children and 42 grandchildren, and have almost a billion citizens. I have rheumatism, a collapsed uterus, I'm morbidly obese and deaf in one ear. I have known 11 Prime Ministers and passed 2,347 pieces of legislation. I've been in office 62 years, 234 days. Thus, I am the longest-serving monarch in world history. I'm responsible for five households and a staff of over 3,000. I am cantankerous, boring, greedy, fat, ill-tempered, at times selfish and myopic, both metaphorically and literally. I am perhaps disagreeably attached to power and should not have smashed the Emperor of Russia's egg. But I am anything but insane. If the household wish to disobey me, so be it. Let them do it to my face. I will see everyone in the Durbar Room at once.

Dr. Reid: I did not do seven years at Edinburgh University to look at Indian dicks.

Queen Victoria: Everyone I love has died and I just go on and on. What is the point?
Abdul Karim: Service, Your Majesty. We are here for a greater purpose.

Factual error: The scene with Queen Victoria in Florence happens too early since it is supposed to happen in the spring of 1888 but Abdul Karim was not yet her official "Munshi", being appointed to that title in August of the same year.
