Princess Margaret: Softly love and to love softly. Dew on the sycamore branch. By the creaking gate where my heart hurries afterwards through the path of wheat along the briar, to that stone, under which I lie.
King Henry VIII: Alright, so you were a fucking virgin! That's not the point!
Thomas Wyatt: [talking to Thomas Tallis of Anne Boleyn] For what it's worth, I did fuck her.
Queen Catherine of Aragon: Have you no kind things to say?
King Henry VIII: Kind?
Queen Catherine of Aragon: To your wife, the mother of your child. You treat me so unkindly and in public neglect me.
King Henry VIII: Katherine, you must accept the inevitable. The weight of academic opinion is against us. We were never legally man and wife. And the court will decide in my favour and if the court does not decide in my favour, I shall denounce the pope as a heretic and marry whom I please.
Cardinal Thomas Wolsey: Try to discover by subtle means, through his agents, if the emperor is prepared to support his aunt by use of force.
Sir Thomas More: You think he might invade England in support of the queen?
Cardinal Thomas Wolsey: [smiling] I don't think anything, but I imagine everything.
King Henry VIII: Wolsey promises me I will have a divorce by summer.
Anne Boleyn: Promises are easy.
