Off topic: Reggie, I was watching JTK in CSI Miami...well at one point a character is pulled off of Jamie, the character's name: Reggie, Delko yells "Reggie get off him!"...i could not help but think of you ;-)

On topic: Within the series, anytime KoA said something that made Henry look like a spoiled little prince, Maria and JRM did such a good job playing that off eachother.
"For every one man that votes for you, I can find a thousand who would vote with me." or something like that, I can't remember the actual words.
"What always happens..." - Anne Boleyn in S1E8, it just stuck with me, Natalie delivered it perfectly.
"Do you want to be?" - Edward to Jane in S2E8, the sneaky Seymours!
"And we will hear of them no longer." - Thomas Boleyn in S2E8, but of course everything Nick Dunning said was gold.

The Pope about Anne Boleyn: "And what about this putain, this wh0re--why doesn't somebody just get rid of her?"

I liked this line the way Peter O'Toole said it and because I learned a new word!

*blush* must be some kind of premonition, and i vow it will happen someday, only the security guard will not be pulling me off... chances are Rachelle will though, lol!

Another quote that really resonates with me was something Francis I said:

"If i had not been born to be King, i certainly would not have wished that faith upon myself, it is much harder to have everything, than to have nothing" - Francis I
