[Elizabeth presents her ideas of religious reform to Parliament; the bishops are outraged and begin to argue]

First Bishop:
Madam, by this act... by this act, you force us to relinquish our allegiance to the Holy Father.
Elizabeth:
How can I force you, Your Grace? I am a woman.
[Bishops laugh]

Elizabeth:
I have no desire to make windows into men's souls. I simply ask, can any man, in truth, serve two masters, and be faithful to both?
[Bishops start to argue again]

Bishop #2:
Madam, this-this is heresy!
Elizabeth:
No, Your Grace, this is... common sense.
[Bishops murmur in semi-agreement]

Elizabeth:
Which is a most English virtue.
[Bishops laugh]
