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

[last lines]
Narrator: They ruled for 80 years. But no man can live forever, except he who possesses the heart of a star, and Yvaine gave him hers entirely. After their children and grandchildren were grown, the time had come to light the babylon candle.
[there is a flash of light from inside the royal quarters, the camera then pans up to the sky where two brighter stars have appeared]
Narrator: and they still live happily ever after.

Septimus: [as he holds a sword to Tristan's throat] Who are you? What business do you have here?
Tristan: [he sees the number 7 mark on Septimus' hand] Septimus... I knew your brother Primus.
Septimus: Unless you would love to join him in the afterlife then I suggest you answer my question. What are you doing here?
Tristan: I might ask you the same thing!
[Septimus realizes that Tristan is holding a blade to his gut]
Septimus: Hmm.
[They both lower their weapons and peer through the window]
Septimus: There are four of them. Do as I say and we may stand a chance.
Tristan: Wait! How do I know you can be trusted?
Septimus: You don't. Why? Do you have a choice?
Tristan: No.
Septimus: Well then, let's go.

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...

Yvaine

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

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]

Stardust Quotes

Secundus: [as he overlooks the balcony] I see the kingdom, father. The whole of Stormhold.
King: And...
Secundus: My kingdom?
King: Maybe... Look up.
[Secondus looks up to the sky, the king looks to Septimus. Septimus smiles and pushes Secondus off the balcony]

A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really...”Do the stars gaze back?" Now *that's* a question.
