Rotten Tomatoes:

Duchesse de Praslin:
Mademoiselle Deluzy, just a moment.

Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:
But madame, I'm supposed to... monsieur's downstairs...

Duchesse de Praslin:
Monsieur's downstairs, yes. I am here to make sure that you understand this time you've gone too far, mademoiselle. You are to leave this house into which you've brought evil and sin!

Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:
Yes, madame, there is evil in this house, but it was here before I came. Twas not I who brought it.

Duchesse de Praslin:
What intrigue there is beneath that mask of innocence! It was not enough for you to be a governess! No, you had to conspire to become the mistress of my household! To steal from me everything that was mine, including the affections of my children!

Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:
Affections can not be stolen, madam, they are given freely or not at all. If you'd ever been a mother to your children, if you'd earned their love instead of driving them away nothing I could've done would ever make them turn away from you to...

Duchesse de Praslin:
You've used them shamelessly to attract him! To separate him from me!

Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:

Duchesse de Praslin:
Have you not one shred of decency? How dare he'd entice you to come here to confess that you and he... to admit openly without delicacy that you...

Henriette Deluzy-Desportes:
Why do you stop? I challenge you to accuse me of what you know is not true!

Duchesse de Praslin:
I am not here to challenge you in a matter that is personable between myself and la monsieur duc! I am here to dismiss an unsatisfactory servant!
