[Miles has taken the Prince to his home for the night]



Prince Edward Tudor:
I'm hungry. What have you to tempt my appetite?



Miles Hendon:
Well, now, that depends on what didn't tempt the mices.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Mice?



Miles Hendon:
Oh, yes. I had to fatten them all up. You see the, uh, cat threatened to leave.



Prince Edward Tudor:
You're making a joke.



Miles Hendon:
The humor of being short of rations, my small friend, has always escaped me.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Then you're poor?



Miles Hendon:
Would you believe it? I am.

[John and Hugo have brought the prince - thinking he's Tom - to help them steal from the inn]



John Canty:
Now, remember: if ya don't do like you've been told, we'll put climes on ya! Twenty of 'em! Ya know what climes are?


[the prince shakes his head, 'no']



John Canty:
Tell him, Hugo.



Hugo:
They're little bandages, with a bit o' paste on 'em, made o' soap and quicklime and rust off old iron. And when ya takes 'em off there's the nastiest looking sore that ever made a citizen sick. Sores that don't get well, but spread like a disease.



Prince Edward Tudor:
No... no... I'll steal.



John Canty:
Let's get at it then.

[the boys are switching clothes - the prince holds up one of Tom's tattered garments]

Are there in any vermin in this?

[Miles sits down to share the supper]



Prince Edward Tudor:
Would you sit in the presence of your king?



Miles Hendon:
Now, see here, my lad!



Prince Edward Tudor:
I will no longer tolerate your manner.



Miles Hendon:
[humoring him] I ask your pardon, your majesty, but after that chase we led them it would be good to sit down.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Perhaps.


[Miles sits]



Prince Edward Tudor:
No! Custom must be preserved - you will stand.


[Miles stands and then leans against the wall, getting annoyed as the prince finishes the supper]



Prince Edward Tudor:
I was very hungry. Feel better now.



Miles Hendon:
I'm gratified, your majesty.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Come to think of it, I'm under obligation to you in many ways. Your service demands rich reward.



Miles Hendon:
Oh, a mere nothing, your majesty.



Prince Edward Tudor:
You may have any reward you wish... name it.



Miles Hendon:
The, uh, privilege of sitting in your majesty's presence.



Prince Edward Tudor:
Advance, fellow, and give me your sword.



Miles Hendon:
[gives his sword to the prince] Did you find the mutton tough, sire?



Prince Edward Tudor:
Kneel.


[the prince lays the sword on Miles' shoulder]



Prince Edward Tudor:
While England remains - and the crown continues - you and your heirs, forever, may sit in the presence of the majesty of England.


[he taps the sword on Miles' shoulder]



Prince Edward Tudor:
Arise, Sir Miles Hendon.



Prince Edward Tudor:
For pity sake, sit down.



Miles Hendon:
Thank you, your majesty.
