Sophie: You're saying the Holy Grail is a person? A woman?
Leigh: And it turns out, she makes an appearance right there.
Sophie: But they are all men.
Leigh: Are they? What about that figure on the right hand of our Lord seated in the place of honor? Flowing red hair. Folded feminine hands. Hint of a bosom. No? It’s called scotoma. The mind sees what it chooses to see.
Sophie: Who is she?
Leigh: My dear, that's Mary Magdalene.
Sophie: The prostitute?
Leigh: She wasno such thing. Smeared by the Church in 591 anno Domini, poor dear. Mary Magdalene was Jesus' wife.
Robert: This is an old wives' tale.
Leigh: The original one, in fact.
Robert: There's virtually no empirical proof.
Leigh: He knows as well as I do. Now, my dear, the word in French for Holy Grail.
Sophie: Le Sangreal.
Leigh: From the Middle English "Sangreal" of the original Arthurian legend. Now, as two words. Can you translate for our friend?
Sophie: Sang real, it means "royal blood."
Leigh: When the legend speaks of the chalice that held the blood of Christ, it speaks in fact of the female womb that carried Jesus' royal bloodline.
Sophie: But how could Christ have a bloodline, unless--?
Leigh: Mary was pregnant at the time of the Crucifixion. For her own safety and for that of Christ's unborn child, she fled the Holy Land and came to France. And here, it is said, she gave birth to a daughter, Sarah.
Sophie: They know the child's name.
Robert: A little girl.
Robert: If that were true, it's adding insult to injury.
Robert: The pagans found transcendence through the joining of male to female.
Sophie: People found god through sex?
Robert: In paganism, women were worshiped as a route to heaven but the modern Church has a monopoly on that in salvation through Jesus Christ.
Leigh: And he who keeps the keys to heaven rules the world.
Robert: Women, then, are a huge threat to the Church. The Catholic inquisition soon publishes what may be the most blood-soaked book in human history.
Leigh: The Malleus Maleficarum.
Robert: The Witches' Hammer.
Leigh: It instructed the clergy on how to locate, torture and kill all freethinking women.
Robert: In three centuries of witch hunts, 50, 000 women are captured, burned alive at the stake.
Leigh: Oh, at least that. Some say millions. Imagine, then, Robert, that Christ's throne might live on in a female child. You asked what would be worth killing for. Witness the greatest cover-up in human history. This is the secret that the Priory of Sion has defended for over 20 centuries. They are the guardians of the royal bloodline. The keepers of the proof of our true past. They are the protectors of the living descendants of Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.
Remy: Sir Leigh?
Leigh: Sometimes I wonder who is serving whom. His sauces are not that fantastic. Yes, can I help you?
Remy: Yes. They're on the news now.
Sophie: Living descendants? Is it possible?
Robert: It’s not impossible.
Leigh: You have not been honest with me. Your pictures are on the television. You are wanted for four murders!
Robert: That's why Vernet said "killing spree."
Leigh: You come into my home, playing on my passions for the Grail.
Robert: That's why he needed you. Sophie.
Leigh: You will leave my house!
1. The place of honor
2. She was no such thing.
这里的no such thing的意思是“没有的事”，我们来看个例子：There's no such thing as a free lunch. 世上没有免费的午餐。
3. Old wives' tale
Old wives’ tale 可以说是个俗语，意思就是“A superstition 迷信，老掉牙的故事/说法”，例如：Toads cause warts? That's an old wives' tale.
