Sir Thomas Boleyn: I received a request for marriage today for Anne from the Carey family. William, their eldest son.
Lady Elizabeth: Oh, that's wonderful.
Sir Thomas Boleyn: I turned it down. Offered them Mary instead. Everyone improves the standing of their family with their daughters. I think Anne can do better than a merchant's son.
Lady Elizabeth: And Mary can't? I think you underestimate her.
Sir Thomas Boleyn: Oh no, that's not true. I think she's the kinder of the two, quite possibly the fairer. To get ahead in this world, you need more than fair looks and a kind heart.
