Lionel Logue: He could really be great. Myrtle Logue: Perhaps he doesn't want to be great.
King George VI: Bloody mess. Can't even give them a Christmas speech. Lionel Logue: Like your dad used to do. King George VI: Precisely. Lionel Logue: He's not here anymore. King George VI: Yes he is.
King Edward VIII: Don't I have any rights? King George VI: Many privileges.
Lionel Logue: Would I lie to a prince of the realm to win twelve pennies?
Myrtle Logue: [seeing the Queen at her dining table, stunned] Y - you...? Queen Elizabeth: It's 'Your Majesty' the first time.
Lionel Logue: Surely a prince's brain knows what its mouth is doing?
King George V: In the past all a King had to do was look respectable in uniform and not fall off his horse. Now we must invade people's homes and ingratiate ourselves with them. This family is reduced to those lowest, basest of all creatures.
Lionel Logue: You still stammered on the 'W'.
King George VI: [as he prepares to broadcast his speech] However this turns out, I don't know how to thank you.
Lionel Logue: How do you feel? King George VI: Full of hot air.
King George VI: David? I've been trying to see you. King Edward VIII: I've been terribly busy. King George VI: Doing what?
Lionel Logue: Do you know the 'f' word? King George VI: Ffff...
King George VI: If I'm King, where's my power? Can I form a government? Can I levy a tax, declare a war? No! And yet I am the seat of all authority. Why?
Lionel Logue: Please don't smoke. I believe sucking cigarette smoke into your lungs will kill you. King George VI: I need to relax. My physicians say it relaxes the throat. Lionel Logue: They're idiots. King George VI: They've all been knighted.
Lionel Logue: Why do you stammer so much more with David than you ever do with me? King George VI: 'Cos you're b... bloody well paid to listen.
Lionel Logue: What was your earliest memory? King George VI: I'm not... -here to discuss... -personal matters. Lionel Logue: Why are you here then?
Lionel Logue: Do you know any jokes?
[watching a clip of Hitler speaking] Lilibet: What's he saying? King George VI: I don't know….
Stanley Baldwin: Neville Chamberlain will take my place as Prime Minister. It's a matter of principle. I was mistaken. I have found it impossible to believe that there is any man in the world so lacking in moral feeling as Hitler. And that the world may be hurled for a second time into the abyss of destructive war. Churchill was right all along. This was always Hitler's intention. I'm only very sorry to leave you at this great time of crisis.
Queen Elizabeth: My husband's work involves a great deal of public speaking. Lionel Logue: Then he should change jobs. Queen Elizabeth: He can't. Lionel Logue: What is he, an indentured servant?
King George VI: Sh*t. Sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t, sh*t! Lionel Logue: Yes! King George VI: Sh*t!
King George VI: Listen to me. *Listen to me!* Lionel Logue: Listen to you? By what right? King George VI: By divine right, if you must. I am your king. Lionel Logue: No you're not, you told me so yourself. You didn't want it. Why should I waste my time listening?
King George VI: There may be dark days ahead, and war can no longer be confined to the battlefield. But we can only do the right as we see the right, and reverently commit our cause to God.
