Mary Boleyn: Mother, please! Speak to father... Do something... I don't want to go! Lady Elizabeth: This is not a request. We have been summoned. [gets up and leaves the room] Mary Boleyn: [to Anne] Please don't be angry with me... You think I desired to go for this purpose? Anne Boleyn: All I know is that a man who didn't know who you were was with you in that room for a half-hour and came out completely besotted! [starts to leave] Anne Boleyn: Don't know what you said or did! Mary Boleyn: Nothing sister! Except sing your praises and talk about my husband. Anne Boleyn: Really? Well, you must show me how you did that sometime!
