[after the assassination attempt on Count Stolypin]

Tsar Nicholas II:
He's a good man. They always kill good men. The ones who've helped them most. They killed my grandfather. He freed the serfs, you know. He helped them; so, they threw a bomb. Stolypin's a good man.
[feels in his pocket]

Tsar Nicholas II:
I can't find a match.
Vice Premier Kokovstov:
They've got the man who shot him.
Tsar Nicholas II:
The man?
Vice Premier Kokovstov:
Some kind of revolutionary.
Tsar Nicholas II:
Damn them all. You help them, and they kill you for it. Give them Dumas and they give you bombs. I want them paid in kind. Do you understand me? I want something done!

Transcript:
...and for the assassin
and his family.
But politics is like that
in the Balkans.
The English vote
and the Serbs assassinate.
You see, Serbia wants its freedom.
Austria won't give it to them
and so this happens.
It has happened here.
- They threw a bomb...
- Nicky, it's so late.
They're not children anymore.
They must accept these things.
Grandfather was killed by a bomb.
So was Uncle Sergei.
But Serbia is a long way off.
And we don't need
to have bad dreams about Archdukes.
The diplomats will send
some angry notes.
A few generals will go on exercises
and everyone will be sensible again.
All over Europe, kings and queens
are sleeping safely in their beds.
And that's what we're going to do.
Your Majesty must not.
This is only a partial mobilization.
It is against Austria,
not Germany, nor anyone else.
If Russia mobilizes,
there will be a war.
The Austrians are shelling Belgrade.
We must be ready to defend ourselves.
I'm ordering prayers for peace
to be said in all the churches.
