French executioner:
There is a blade for you fit for a king! Or in this case, a queen, n'est-ce pas?



English executioner:
Not fit for our Queen!



French executioner:
No? Why not?



English executioner:
She is an English Queen, ain't she? Well, what's wrong with English steel? And come to that, what's wrong with an English headsman?



French executioner:
Ah, meaning yourself?



English executioner:
Why not? I was good enough to knock off the Queen's five lovers, wasn't I? Why'd they want you, a Frenchman from Calais?


[spits]



French executioner:
I will tell you...



English executioner:
No, I'm telling you. It's a crying shame. 'N half the English executioners out of work as it is!



French executioner:
And why are they out of work? Because they are only fit to sever the bull necks of their countrymen with a butcher's cleaver. But a woman's neck, a Queen's neck: that calls for finesse, for delicacy, for chivalry... in one word, a Frenchman!



English executioner:
I could think of another word.

[Henry's fourth wedding night]



King Henry VIII:
My wife? Huh... not yet.



Anne of Cleves:
Poor mother told me... first he says the marriage is no good, and then he cuts off the head with an ax chopper!



King Henry VIII:
That is an exaggeration, madam.



Anne of Cleves:
Then why do you say I am not yet your wife?



King Henry VIII:
Well, madam, uh, a marriage ceremony doesn't make us one.



Anne of Cleves:
Mmm?


[shows her ring]



King Henry VIII:
Oh, yes, yes, yes, 's all right, but you, uh, have to, umm, I have to...



Anne of Cleves:
What?



King Henry VIII:
Did your mother not talk to you about...



Anne of Cleves:
What?



King Henry VIII:
Oh Lord. Ohhhh, well, uh, madam, all that stuff about children being found under gooseberry bushes... that's not true...

Katherine Howard:
Who's there?



King Henry VIII:
Henry.



Katherine Howard:
Henry who?



King Henry VIII:
The King.



Katherine Howard:
Oh, the King, not the man.



King Henry VIII:
Unlock the door.



Katherine Howard:
Isn't it rather late for a maid to unlock her door to a... man?



King Henry VIII:
On, come on, unlock the door.



Katherine Howard:
Is that a command?



King Henry VIII:
Yes.



Katherine Howard:
To the King, then, not the man.


[lets him in and kneels]



King Henry VIII:
Don't do that. I'm leaving me crown outside.



Katherine Howard:
You've left it outside with my reputation, sire.



King Henry VIII:
No one saw me, Katherine, I swear. Can't you forget the King and forget the crown, forget everything... you told me once I was a man, uh? What do you say if I'm not the King?



Katherine Howard:
Get out of my room!



King Henry VIII:
What?! Whyyy...



Katherine Howard:
That's what I *would* say, if you were not the King. Since you are the King, I expect your command.



King Henry VIII:
Command? It's a poor thing to command in love.



Katherine Howard:
Love? Who is in love?



King Henry VIII:
I am, with you.



Katherine Howard:
Love eternal, since yesterday afternoon, until tomorrow morning?



King Henry VIII:
When I say love, I mean love.

[Henry's fourth wedding night]



King Henry VIII:
[shouting] Ah, what am I, what am I going to do with you!



Anne of Cleves:
Chop my head?



King Henry VIII:
Probably.



Anne of Cleves:
You daren't.



King Henry VIII:
Why not?



Anne of Cleves:
Because in Europe I will make such a scandal as you never heard. Not the first time you have chopped the head. Henry the wife-butcher, that's what they will call you!



King Henry VIII:
I don't care what they say, I'm not going to live with you!



Anne of Cleves:
Well, why don't you divorce me, like a gentleman?



King Henry VIII:
You would consent to a divorce?



Anne of Cleves:
I would consent to a divorce.



King Henry VIII:
You are a very reasonable woman. What are your terms?

Thomas Culpeper:
I never should have come, Kate. We can't go on like this.



Katherine Howard:
I know, it's dreadful, seeing each other every day and never being alone together...



Thomas Culpeper:
Oh, it's not that, it's... it's being torn in half between you and the King.



Katherine Howard:
But, Tom, we belong to each other!



Thomas Culpeper:
No. We belong to him.
