Added DiffLines:

* IronMaiden: Sir Roger is tortured in an iron maiden to force him to make a false confession. After he's let out, he seems unharmed but when he asks for a glass of water the water sprays out of the InvisibleHoles in his torso.


* {{Asexuality}}: The former queen could've been this, seeming how she was "happily married" and wasn't interested in sex. Henry was just ignorant.



'''Cardinal Wolsey:''' ''[uncertainly]'' A '''fellow''' with two beauties, M'Lord?
** The implication that Cardinal Wolsey's dictionary confuses the word "annul" for the word "anal", even though he never confuses these two words exactly (okay -- he confuses it with "an old", [[TakeOurWordForIt but the implication is still there]]).

* DelegationRelay

to:

* DelegationRelayDelegationRelay: An envoy from the Vatican says that while the Pope is shocked at the idea, a royal divorce can be arranged...for a price. The papal envoy is asked how much of this money is being skimmed off for his own benefit, which he indignantly denies. As the DelegationRelay brings this message to King Henry the Eighth, each person doubles the price so he can skim half the bribe for himself.

* WeAreNotGoingThroughThatAgain: [[spoiler:Wolsey and Cromwell call for the executioner to go ahead and chop their heads off rather than help King Henry arrange yet another royal divorce.]]
