Charles Brandon: Someone told me you were once a mercenary soldier.
Thomas Cromwell: I saw some action in my youth, as did Your Grace, I believe?
Charles Brandon: But I was never a soldier of fortune. If I displeased the king, it was in a good cause.
Thomas Cromwell: I'm sure, although some would argue otherwise.
Charles Brandon: Like you?
Thomas Cromwell: I'd never have the temerity to argue with Your Grace.
Charles Brandon: Not to my face anyway.
