The Other Boleyn Girl
Movie Quote Quiz

Jane Parker: Put yourself in the queen's shoes. She knows the only reason the king's asked you here is because he desires you. She's a good woman, trust me.

George Boleyn: It's embarrassing.
Anne Boleyn: Look, she has her eye on you. Sweet Jane Parker would be a match to please our father.
George Boleyn: Ugh, vile girl, she's the most ambitious little servant in court.
Anne Boleyn: She can't stop watching.

King Henry viii: Anne, have you considered what I've asked? Is there hope?
Anne Boleyn: How could I ever trust you, when I've seen how you betray first your wife, now my sister?

William Stafford: If you came with me, I would never betray you or take you for granted.
Mary Boleyn: It's impossible, you know that. My family would never allow it.
William Stafford: And you would care what they think after everything they've done to you?

Lady Elizabeth: When was it that people stopped thinking of ambition as a sin and started thinking of it as a virtue?

The Duke of Norfolk: You better get used to talking about it, when you sleep with the king it ceases to be a private matter.

King Henry viii: I have torn this country apart for you.

Mary Boleyn: I gave myself to a man I loved, and he loved me.

Continuity mistake: The morning after her wedding night, we see Mary walking with Anne telling her about the wedding night, notice Mary's braids in her hair, one braid is in a circle, yet in the next scene where Mary and Anne are folding a blanket, her braid is now down in one long braid.

Question: At the end of the movie it shows what happens to everyone. It shows Mary and William Stafford walking in the meadow and 3 children. There's a boy, presumably the boy Mary had with Henry and Anne's daughter Elizabeth. Does anybody know who the other girl is? She looks older than Elizabeth so I assume she's not Mary and Stafford's daughter.

Nikki Yates

Chosen answer: It is unknown who the older girl is, but probably the child of a close relative. In the movie (which significantly differs from the novel and from history), Mary is shown to only have given birth to one child (King Henry's son) before her marriage to William Stafford. Therefore, the girl could not be Mary's child by her first marriage.
