I Have Submitted to Your Notions of Honor Long Enough
Armand D’Hubert:You have kept me at your beck and call for fifteen years. I shall never again do what you demand of me. By every rule of single combat, from this moment your life belongs to me. Is that not correct?Then I shall simply declare you dead. In all of your dealings with me, you’ll do me the courtesy to conduct yourself as a dead man.I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine.
— “The Duellists” (1977)
