"It was an improbable romance. He was a country boy. She was from the city. She had the world at her feet, while he didn't have two dimes to rub together."

On the right side of the tracks she was born and raised.
In a great big ol' house full of butlers and maids.
She says "no one, is better than I"
I know I'm just an average guy
No football hero or smooth Don Juan
Got empty pockets, y'see I'm a poor mans son.
Can't give her the things that money can buy
But I'd never, never, never make my baby cry
Stevie Wonder, "Uptight"

Too many shadows, whispering voices
Faces on posters, too many choices
If, when, why, what?
How much have you got?
Have you got it, do you get it, if so, how often?
And which do you choose, a hard or soft option?
(How much do you need?)
In a West End town, a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
In a West End town, a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
Pet Shop Boys, "West End Girls"

"She's a rich girl, she don't try to hide it,
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes.

Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose."
Paul Simon, "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes"

"You guys are killing me! She's Forbidden Fruit! It's like... like... like she's the princess and I'm the stable boy."

Lord Mountbatten: Everything was fine. Everyone was getting what they wanted and needed from the arrangement. Until the boy started talking about love.
Elizabeth: But what if it is love? Shouldn't it be allowed to run its course? I was allowed to marry my choice.
Lord Mountbatten: That was different.
Elizabeth: His rank was different, the feelings were the same.
Lord Mountbatten: The times were different, his past was different. Phillip was a royal prince.
Elizabeth: Does that still matter in this day and age?
Queen Mother: It does! The system is too... fragile, too precious, to let in unpredictable elements, dangerous elements.
Elizabeth: Camilla isn't dangerous! She's the first woman Charles has met that gives him confidence, and comfort, and self-belief. Qualities I think we all agree he will one day need.

Confessional Monk: Do you, good sir, take your social superior to be your wedded-
Galavant: Yes, I do.

Princesses don't marry kitchen boys.
Dmitri, Anastasia
