Anne Boleyn: [to Henry, pleadingly] You cannot have three people in a marriage!
Pope Paul III: [discussing Henry VIII's divorce] So, what about this girl, this putain, the king's whore? Why doesn't somebody just get rid of her?
Anne Boleyn: [complaining to Henry about Katherine still making his shirts] They are you and me! They are you and her!
King Henry VIII: Why does it matter? They're just shirts for God's sake
Anne Boleyn: It's so hard when we're about to get married, and she's still here!
King Henry VIII: Look, I've have more important things to worry about OTHER THAN MY SHIRTS!
Charles Brandon: [about Anne] She has had a previous engagement to Thomas Wyatt.
King Henry VIII: She denies it.
Charles Brandon: Well she would, wouldn't she?
King Henry VIII: [Grabs Charles and slams him against the wall] I said she denies it!
Queen Katherine: [to Cromwell about the royal jewels] I will not give up what is rightfully mine to a woman who is the scandal of Christendom!
Thomas Cromwell: Ah, Mr. Cranmer!
Thomas Cranmer: I'm so sorry to be late, Mr. Cromwell. It's completely unforgivable.
Thomas Cromwell: Nonsense, we haven't even begun dining. It's good to see you. Mr. Boleyn, Mr. Wyatt, this is Mr. Cranmer.
Thomas Wyatt: Mr. Cranmer, you are a man of the cloth, I believe.
Thomas Cranmer: And are you not a poet, Mr. Wyatt?
Thomas Wyatt: That's the least of my sins. You may take one of my confessions after supper.
Thomas Cromwell: I wouldn't if I were you. It'll turn your hear white.
Thomas Cromwell: We were discussing before you arrived the progress of the Congregation of Bishops, which was called to decide upon the King's supremacy. His Majesty has wisely decided to appoint George Boleyn here to negotiate with Their Graces.
George Boleyn: I found most of them accommodating. Of course, there are a few stubborn exceptions.
Thomas Cranmer: Bishop Fisher, I assume.
George Boleyn: True.
Thomas Cranmer: May I ask who else?
George Boleyn: The archbishop himself, Warham. After years being perfectly pliable, he suddenly become rather intransigent.
Thomas Wyatt: It's because he's old, and consequently, he's closer to his maker, to whom in due course he must explain himself.
Thomas Cromwell: Well, I'm sure that there'll be a simple matter of him to explain how he helped liberate his church from superstition, religious falsehood and ecclesiastical greed.
Thomas Cromwell: Majesty, this is Mr. Cranmer, of whom I have often spoken. It was Mr. Cranmer who first spoke to the fact that Your Majesty's Great Matter was a theological issue and not legal one.
King Henry VIII: Mr. Cranmer. I have desired to meet you almost above any person now living. You are most welcome here at court.
Thomas Cranmer: Majesty, I...
King Henry VIII: It's funny. Some of the greatest and most celebrated minds in my kingdom sweated and struggled over an issue which you, an obcure cleric, if you forgive me, was able to resolve with perfect simplicity and a clarity of mind which put them all to shame.
Thomas Cranmer: Majesty, I... Um... I...
Thomas Cromwell: Mr. Cranmer, His Majesty has decided to appoint you his personal chaplain.
Thomas Cranmer: I... ah...
Thomas Cromwell: You must thank His Majesty.
Thomas Cranmer: [bows] Majesty.
King Henry VIII: You are welcome here, Mr. Cranmer.
