A Man For All Seasons (Act I)
WOSLEY: (From behind, grips his shoulder fiercely) Thomas we're alone. I give you my word. There's no one here.
MORE: I didn't suppose there was, Your Grace.
WOSLEY: Oh sit down! (He goes to the table, sits, signals MORE to sit. MORE unsuspectingly obeys. Then deliberately loud.) Do you favor a change of dynasty, Sir Thomas? D'you think two Tudors is sufficent?
This sounds as though Wosley is trying to set More up for something. Conspiracy against the King probably. I think there was someone in that room and that Wosley deliberatley spoke loud so they could hear him, in hopes that More would do the same. I think there is something fishy here.

I think you're right. It was kind of a giveaway when he said " I give you my word, there's no one here." It is very fishy though.

Definitely fishy...He seems to want to get More to say something that could later be brought back to haunt him almost. And he wants to be sure someone else will hear so he has proof of More saying it.

Yeah when I read that I found it a little odd that he had to tell him that he could trust him. Its like how everyone else said that he wanted to get something out of More that maybe More wasn't saying and He could use it against him.
