      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.
