Will Scarlett: [about Friar Tuck] One of us? He looks like three of us.


King Richard: And I further banish from my realm all injustices and oppressions which have burdened my people. And I pray that under my rule, Normans and Saxons alike will share the rights of Englishmen.

Robin: I couldn't help overhearing about that 'prickly feeling.' I'm very glad I did come.
Marian: That, that was a game. Now you've got to go at once.
Robin: Game, eh? Well, couldn't I join in? Of course, I probably wouldn't be as good at it as, uh, [he playfully pinches Bess' chin] this pretty young girl. I could do my best.
Marian: Bess, will you leave us? Please.
Robin: Now let's see, where does this game begin? Oh, I know. It's simple. We'll start where you are in love with me. You are, aren't you? Because I am with you. Terribly. That's why I came. I had to see you.
Marian: You must go at once and I don't love you.
Robin: Oh! You sure?
Marian: Yes.
Robin: Very well then, I'll go. This is rather unfriendly of you, exposing me to my enemies like this....Goodbye my lady.
Marian: Robin!
Robin: Yes?
Marian: Please.
Robin: Then you do love me, don't you? Don't you?
Marian: You know I do.
Robin: Well, that's different. [they kiss]
Marian: You know you're very impudent.
Robin: Me?
Marian: You are. And when my real guardian King Richard finds out about your being in love with me...
Robin: I know, he'll make me court jester.
Marian: He won't. He'll stick your funny head on London's Gate.
Robin: A very fine decoration it will be, my bold Norman beauty.
Marian: I'm not bold.
Robin: But you're a Norman...And you are a beauty. You are the most beautiful...
Marian: And you're leaving here at once. Please darling! Every minute you're here, you're in danger.
Robin: I know...Marian, will you come with me?
Marian: To Sherwood? [He nods]
Robin: I've nothing to offer you but a life of hardship and danger. But we'd be together.
Marian:But, Robin, dear.
Robin: I know. It's asking a lot. But who knows how long it will be before Richard returns. Friar Tuck would marry us. Will you?
Marian: Because I love you Robin, I'd come. Even the danger would mean nothing if you were with me.
Robin: Then you will.
Marian: No...I could help much more by watching for treachery here and leaving you free to protect Richard's people until he returns. Now do you see why you have to go back to your men alone? [He nods] Go now quickly, dearest.

[to Prince John, about Marian] What a pity her manners don't match her looks, Your Highness.

[to Little John, after losing a quarterstaff battle with him] I wanted to see what you were made of...and I did.

I've called you here as freeborn Englishmen, loyal to our king. While he reigned over us, we lived in peace. But since Prince John has seized the regency, Guy of Gisbourne and the rest of his traitors have murdered and pillaged. You've all suffered from their cruelty - the ear loppings, the beatings, the blindings with hot irons, the burning of our farms and homes, the mistreatment of our women. It's time to put an end to this! [Cheers] Now, this forest is wide. It can shelter and clothe and feed a band of good, determined men - good swordsmen, good archers, good fighters. Men, if you're willing to fight for our people, I want you! Are you with me?

[swearing in his Merry Men] That you, the freemen of this forest, swear to despoil the rich only to give to the poor, to shelter the old and the helpless, to protect all women rich or poor, Norman or Saxon. Swear to fight for a free England. To protect her loyally until the return of our King and sovereign Richard the Lion Heart. And swear to fight to the death against our oppressors!

[about Marian] Hanging would be a small price to pay for the company of such a charming lady.

His task was here at home defending his own people instead of deserting them to fight in foreign lands...I'll condemn anything that leaves the task of holding England for Richard to outlaws like me.

Richard must be found. He must be found and brought here to safety...Don't rest, day or night, any of you, until he's found.

Well, this is what we Normans like - good food, good company, and a beautiful woman to flatter me.

[about Robin] He's a reckless rogue who goes around the shires stirring up the Saxons against authority, and he has the insolence to set himself up as the protector of the people.

Let him approach...By my faith, but you're a bold rascal. Robin. I like you.

[about Robin] I'll have him dangling in a week.

You're very charming, Lady Marian, but not exactly clever.
