Queen Catherine: They say too many alliances make a king look weak.
King Henry II: Then why do we sell our daughter to Spain?!
Prince Fancis: You've chosen my wife!? Have you set a date too?
King Henry II: Here's the date, when I say so.
King Henry II: At least your bride has a country. & an army, should you need it!
Greer: Mary your hair. Didn't the nuns teach you anything?
Greer: Make no mistake. We're here to now, to get our young Queen engaged. Alliances can shift. Before they do, Mary need to win the Prince's heart.

Prince Fancis: If you're going to be the Queen of France you need to understand something. Kings do not answer their wives!
Prince Francis: (to Mary) Love is irrelevant to people like us. We who r so privileged in so many ways, but that.
