Tristan: What the hell did you do?
Yvaine: What did I do? What did YOU do? Think of home? That was a GREAT plan! You thought of your home and I thought of mine and now we're halfway between the two!
Tristan: Well you stupid cow! What did you think of your home for?
Yvaine: You just said home! If you wanted me to think of your home you should have said!
Tristan: Some crazy lady was going to cut your heart out and you wanted more specific instructions? Perhaps you'd want it in writing or a diagram maybe?

Captain Shakespeare: And, Yvaine, I have some lovely dresses; take your pick.
Yvaine: [surprised] I'm fine.
Captain Shakespeare: [quietly] Honey... you're wearing a bathrobe.

Would I be correct in thinking that you can neither see nor hear me? Then I'd like to tell you that you smell of pee. You look like the wrong end of a dog. And I swear, if I don't get my Tristan back as he was, I'll be your personal poltergeist!

Yvaine: Are you tempted?
Tristan: Tempted, by what?
Yvaine: Immortality. Let's say it wasn't my heart. Not me. Just a star you didn't know.
Tristan: You seriously think I could kill anybody. Even if I could, I mean, everlasting life? I imagine it would be kind of lonely. Well, maybe if you had someone to share it with. Someone you loved. Then it might be different.

Tristan: [dazed just after returning to human form] Victoria!
Yvaine: I think I preferred "Mother."

Hmm... Murdered by pirates, a heart torn out and eaten, meet Victoria... Can't quite decide which sounds more fun...

Captain Shakespeare: Yvaine... I know what you are.
[Yvaine starts]
Captain Shakespeare: Have no fear, no one on this vessel will harm you, but there are many that would... Your emotions give you away, Yvaine, you must learn to control them. You've been glowing more brightly every day and I think you know why.
Yvaine: Of course I know why I'm glowing. I'm a star! And what the stars do best?
Captain Shakespeare: Well, certainly not the waltz.
Tristan: [approaches to dance with Yvaine, when they begin to dance, Yvaine begins to glow. While they dance, they stop] I'll try again.
Yvaine: Ok.
Tristan: [he dances pretty well with her] See?
Yvaine: Very good.
Tristan: Thank you.
[they keep dancing]

Tristan: I'm sorry, madam, but have you seen a fallen star anywhere?
[she laughs bitterly]
Tristan: No, really! We're in a crater - this must be where it fell!
Yvaine: Yeah, this is where it fell. Or, if you want to get really specific, up there is where this weird bloody necklace came and knocked it out of the heavens while it was minding it's own business. And over *there* is where it landed. And right here... this is where it got hit by a magical flying moron.
Tristan: You're the star? You're the star? Really. Oh wow. Sorry. I didn't expect you to be a... Well, may I just say that I am sorry.
Yvaine: Sorry for what?
Tristan: [puts the enchanted chain around her wrist] For this. See you're going to be a birthday gift for Victoria, my true love.

[to Captain Shakespeare] I can't believe your crew fell for that. And where in God's name did you get that mannequin?

Yvaine: [in the pirate ship] They're going to kill us, aren't they?
Tristan: I don't know.
Yvaine: You know, I used to watch... I used to watch people having adventures. I envied them.
Tristan: You ever heard the expression "Be careful of what you wish for"?
Yvaine: So I deserve to be hunted for my heart and...
Tristan: I didn't mean it like that. Look, I admire your dream. A shop boy like me... I never imagined an adventure this big. I just thought I'd find some celestial rock, take it home and that would be it.
Yvaine: And you got me.
[both begin to laugh]
Yvaine: If there's one thing I know about all my years watching Earth, is that people aren't what they may seem. There are shop boys, and there are boys that just happened to work in a shop for the time being. And trust me Tristan, you are no shop boy. You saved my life. Thank you.
[takes Tristan's hand]

Yvaine: [in the pirate ship] Tell me about Victoria.
Tristan: Well, she... she... There's nothing else to tell you.
Yvaine: The little I know about love is that it's unconditional. It's not something you can buy.
Tristan: Hang on! This wasn't about me trying to buy her love. This was to prove to her how I felt.
Yvaine: Ah... And what's she doing to prove how she feels about you?
Tristan: Well... Look, Yvaine, you'll understand when you meet her, all right? If we don't get murdered by pirates first.
Yvaine: Mmm... Murdered by pirates, heart torn out and eaten, meet Victoria... I can't quite decide which sounds more fun...

Tristan: You sort of - glitter now. Is it... Is it normal?
Yvaine: Let's see if you can work it out for youself. What do stars do?
Tristan: Hmm... Attract trouble?
[Yvaine pushes him, amused]
Tristan: [grinning] All right, I'm sorry. Let me do another guess. Is it: Do they know exactly how to annoy a boy called Tristan Thorn?
