Movie Quote Quiz

Madame de Volanges: Did I show you the cabinet I gave Cecile? It's an exquisite piece. Well, I told her: "You can lock all your secrets in there." Do you know what she said?"Maman, you know it will never be locked." Isn't that the sweetest thing a daughter can say to her mother?
Mertuil: Oh! Yes, yes.
Madame de Volanges: Well, it's locked.
Mertuil: Oh.
Madame de Volanges: I have a duplicate key of course.
Mertuil: Of course.

Valmont: You are confusing bets and marriages, madame. One must always honor a bet.

Valmont: You want me to seduce a little girl, who has seen nothing, who knows nothing, who'll probably flop on her back out of simple curiosity? You don't need me for that. Anyone can do that.

Valmont: Do you think a man can change?
Mertuil: Yes, for the worse.

Mertuil: Men are always chasing after visions, my dear. They want us to be angels.
Baroness: But in bed they want us to be demons, my dear.
Baron: Yes, indeed, it always comes as a morning surprise when you wake up in the arms of an ordinary woman.

Revealing mistake: When Annette Benning reads the letter in the bathtub and shows it to Colin Firth, before the ink begins to run, you can see that it is just squiggles on the paper, not words.
