[to her sister, Mary] You're my only hope. My life depends on it!

Anne Boleyn

These were the rooms for the king's closest friend. His head now rots on a spike.

Lady Elizabeth

Anne Boleyn: Do you think he'll like me?
Mary Boleyn: Of course he will, sister. How could he not?

Mary Boleyn: I didn't betray you. You do know that?
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!

King Henry VIII: Will you give yourself to me now?
Anne Boleyn: Make me your Queen...

King Henry VIII: And who are you?
Mary Boleyn: Mary, your grace.
King Henry VIII: The other Boleyn girl?
Mary Boleyn: Yes.

Mary Boleyn: I beg you. Spare my sister.
King Henry VIII: Why are you here for her?
Mary Boleyn: Because she is my sister. And therefore, one half of me.

Our daughters are being traded like cattle for the advancement of men.

Lady Elizabeth

King Henry VIII: [to Anne] And what would you know of great men?
Anne Boleyn: I'd know one, if he were before me.
King Henry VIII: Do you see one here?
Anne Boleyn: [walks about the hall, surveying the men] Looking, my lord.
Anne Boleyn: [stops in front of the King and smiles] Ah, found one.

Mary Boleyn: We’re sisters
Anne Boleyn: And therefore born to be rivals.

Anne Boleyn: Do I have a choice?
King's Messenger: No.

[Eli is intending to bless the well] I thank you all so much for visiting with us at this time. I've had the pleasure of meeting some of you, and I hope very much in the months to come, I'll be able to visit with each and every one of you. Ah... I'm better at digging holes in the ground than making speeches, so let's forget the speech for this evening, and just make it a simple blessing. You see- one man doesn't prospect from the ground; it takes a whole community of good people, such as yourselves... and, uh, this is good. We stay together... pray together, we work together, and if the good Lord smiles kindly on our endeavor, we share in the wealth together. Now before we spud in Mary's Well number one, named for the lovely Miss Mary Sunday here by my side-a proud daughter of these hills-I'd just like to say God bless these honest labors of ours, and, of course, God bless you all. Amen.
