1

II,2,1031

How is the king employ'd?

2

II,2,1037

No, his conscience
Has crept too near another lady.

3

II,2,1043

Pray God he do! he'll never know himself else.

4

II,2,1065

And free us from his slavery.

5

II,2,1072

For me, my lords,
I love him not, nor fear him; there's my creed:
As I am made without him, so I'll stand,
If the king please; his curses and his blessings
Touch me alike, they're breath I not believe in.
I knew him, and I know him; so I leave him
To him that made him proud, the pope.

6

II,2,1090

How sad he looks! sure, he is much afflicted.

7

II,2,1122

[Aside to NORFOLK] Not to speak of:
I would not be so sick though for his place:
But this cannot continue.

8

II,2,1127

[Aside to NORFOLK] I another.

9

III,2,1838

Which of the peers
Have uncontemn'd gone by him, or at least
Strangely neglected? when did he regard
The stamp of nobleness in any person
Out of himself?

10

III,2,1864

Most strangely.

11

III,2,1866

The cardinal's letters to the pope miscarried,
And came to the eye o' the king: wherein was read,
How that the cardinal did entreat his holiness
To stay the judgment o' the divorce; for if
It did take place, 'I do,' quoth he, 'perceive
My king is tangled in affection to
A creature of the queen's, Lady Anne Bullen.'

12

III,2,1874

Believe it.

13

III,2,1882

May you be happy in your wish, my lord
For, I profess, you have it.

14

III,2,1886

My amen to't!

15

III,2,1888

There's order given for her coronation:
Marry, this is yet but young, and may be left
To some ears unrecounted. But, my lords,
She is a gallant creature, and complete
In mind and feature: I persuade me, from her
Will fall some blessing to this land, which shall
In it be memorised.

16

III,2,1899

No, no;
There be moe wasps that buzz about his nose
Will make this sting the sooner. Cardinal Campeius
Is stol'n away to Rome; hath ta'en no leave;
Has left the cause o' the king unhandled; and
Is posted, as the agent of our cardinal,
To second all his plot. I do assure you
The king cried Ha! at this.

17

III,2,1911

He is return'd in his opinions; which
Have satisfied the king for his divorce,
Together with all famous colleges
Almost in Christendom: shortly, I believe,
His second marriage shall be publish'd, and
Her coronation. Katharine no more
Shall be call'd queen, but princess dowager
And widow to Prince Arthur.

18

III,2,1922

He has; and we shall see him
For it an archbishop.

19

III,2,1925

'Tis so.
The cardinal!

20

III,2,1951

May be, he hears the king
Does whet his anger to him.

21

III,2,1971

The king, the king!

22

III,2,2123

Who dare cross 'em,
Bearing the king's will from his mouth expressly?

23

III,2,2217

Then that, without the knowledge
Either of king or council, when you went
Ambassador to the emperor, you made bold
To carry into Flanders the great seal.

24

III,2,2225

That, out of mere ambition, you have caused
Your holy hat to be stamp'd on the king's coin.

25

III,2,2240

Lord cardinal, the king's further pleasure is,
Because all those things you have done of late,
By your power legatine, within this kingdom,
Fall into the compass of a praemunire,
That therefore such a writ be sued against you;
To forfeit all your goods, lands, tenements,
Chattels, and whatsoever, and to be
Out of the king's protection. This is my charge.

26

V,1,2845

Sir, I did never win of you before.

27

V,1,2859

God safely quit her of her burthen, and
With gentle travail, to the gladding of
Your highness with an heir!

28

V,1,2867

I wish your highness
A quiet night; and my good mistress will
Remember in my prayers.

29

V,3,3107

Nay, my lord,
That cannot be: you are a counsellor,
And, by that virtue, no man dare accuse you.

30

V,3,3177

'Tis the right ring, by heaven: I told ye all,
When ye first put this dangerous stone a-rolling,
'Twould fall upon ourselves.
