    • King Henry (about Brandon): Look, I don't mean he is banished forever. Just as long as he breathes.

    • Charles Brandon: What does Norfolk want? Thomas Boleyn: He wants you to help us destroy Wolsey and in return he will persuade the king to forgive you and welcome you back to court.

    • King Henry (to Anne): Your neck, I love your neck.

    • Thomas Tallis: Mister Wyatt Thomas Wyatt: I've been thinking, perhaps you would set a poem of mine to music. Thomas Tallis: I'd be honoured. Do you have one ready? Thomas Wyatt: I am working on one, I have the first line. Thomas Tallis: Then you have almost everything.

    • Thomas Tallis: I'm going away. William Compton: You're going away, why? Thomas Tallis: Cardinal Wolsey is going to France. He invited me to go with him. With other musicians. William Compton: Must you go? Thomas Tallis: You know very well that an invitation from a cardinal is like an invitation from a king. We little people must put our hands into the fire if invited to.

    Allusions (1)

    • Gabrielle d'EstrĂ©es and One of Her Sisters When George Boleyn finds the two young ladies waiting in his bed, they are taking the pose of a famous painting of the late Renaissance, which features two women, the left with her hand on the right nipple of the other, in the exact same manner as shown in the episode. Gabrielle was a favorite of the French King Henry IV and the painting is considered by some to be a subtle allusion to her being pregnant with his illegitimate child.
