  • Episode Description
  • In the eyes of the Church, Henry's marriage to Anne is not legitimate. Both Thomas More and Bishop Fisher refuse to acknowledge Henry as the supreme head of the English Church. As a result, both are imprisoned in the Tower of London. Despite his marriage, Henry still finds plenty of beautiful women to look at.

    • Thomas More: Mr. Cromwell, there really is no difference between us except that I shall die today and you tomorrow.

    • Thomas Boleyn: What caused it? Anne Boleyn: It was nothing. Thomas Boleyn: Of course it was something. What did you do to kill the baby? Anne Boleyn: I didn't. I don't know. Believe me father, I was so careful. Thomas Boleyn: Well, not careful enough. Well, from now on we must all be careful - you especially - not to lose the king's love, or everything is lost. Everything. For all of us.

    • Pope Paul III: You and I Campeggio have done well to avoid the craft of women. Celibacy is an immense relief. Cardinal Campeggio: Yes, Holy Father.

    • The comment made by Pope Paul III about "celibacy being a relief" is interesting in view of the fact that he had actually fathered a son with a former mistress. He knew what he was talking about.
