Young Bess (1953)
Stewart Granger: Thomas Seymour
Prince Edward : [muttering to Tom about Uncle Ned, who rules while Edward is King as a minor] I wish he'd die.
Thomas Seymour : What? What was that?
Prince Edward : I said, I wish he'd die. D-Y-E.
Thomas Seymour : It's the wrong spelling.
Prince Edward : [nonchalant] Oh, is it?
Ned Seymour : What is Your Majesty talking about?
Prince Edward : Spelling. Nobody knows for certain how to spell the King's English.
Ned Seymour : The spelling is not important, so long as the word carries the right meaning.
Thomas Seymour : The word His Majesty had *exactly* the right meaning.
Thomas Seymour : If you were queen of England, what would you do, eh? Would you give your admiral the opportunity to do great deeds?
Young Bess : I'd give him the opportunities he never dared to dream about. I'd send him around the globe as the Portuguese do. I'd send him to the New World to let the Spaniards know that they are no longer masters of it.
Thomas Seymour : That won't be easy. We're a small country, Bess.
Young Bess : That can be remedied, Tom. It CAN be remedied!
