Isabelle: Sir, I've come to beg you to confess all and swear allegiance to the king, that he might show you mercy.
William: Will he show mercy to my country?
Isabelle: Mercy is to die quickly, perhaps even live in a tower. In time, who knows what could happen.
William: If I swear to him, then all that I am is dead already.
Isabelle: You will die. It will be awful.
William: Every man dies, not every man really lives.
Isabelle: Drink this. It will dull your pain.
William: No. It will numb my wits, and I must have them all. For if I'm senseless or if I wail, then Longshanks will have broken me.
