Robert the Bruce

[voiceover] After the beheading, William Wallace's body was torn to pieces. His head was set on London bridge. His arms and legs, sent to the four corners of Britain as warning. It did not have the effect that Longshanks planned. And I, Robert the Bruce, rode out to pay homage to the armies of the English King, and accept his endorsement of my crown.

Scotland, my land. The French will grovel to anyone with strength, but how will they believe our strength when we can not rule the whole of our own island?

Hamish: Where are you going?
William Wallace: I'm going to pick a fight.
Hamish: Well, looks like we didn't get dressed up for nothing.

The problem with Scotland, is that it is full of Scots.

William: You dropped your rock.
Hamish: Test of manhood.
William: You win.
Hamish: Call it a test of soldiery, then. The English won't let us train with weapons, so we train with stones.
William: Well, a test of a soldier is not in his arm, it's here [points to his head].
Hamish: No, it's here [points to his fist, then punches William]

The Almighty tells me he can get me out of this mess, but he's pretty sure you're ****ed.

Malcolm: Where do you think you're going?
Young William: I'm going with you.
Malcolm: Oh, you're going with, hey? And what are you going to do?
Young William: I'm gonna help.
Malcolm: Hey, and a good help you'd be, too. But I need you to stay here and look after the place for me while I'm away.
Young William: I can fight!
Malcolm: I know you can fight, but it's our wits that make us men. I'll see you tomorrow.

Hamish: I should have remembered the rocks.

Malcolm Wallace: Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it.

Craig: An oath to a liar is no oath at all.

[after killing a would-be assassin] Sure didn't the Almighty send me to watch your back? I didn't like him anyway. He wasn't right in the head.

Prince Edward: You brought back the money, of course.
Isabelle: No, I gave it to ease the suffering of the children of this war.
Longshanks: Ha! That's what happens when you send a woman.
Isabelle: Forgive me, sire. I thought that generosity might demonstrate your greatness to those you mean to rule.
Longshanks: My greatness will be better demonstrated when Wallace returns to Scotland and finds his country in ashes.

Robert Bruce, Sr.: I'm the one who's rotting, but I think your face looks graver than mine. Son, we must have alliance with England to prevail here. You achieved that. You saved your family, increased your land. In time, you will have all the power in Scotland.
Robert the Bruce: Lands, titles, men, power... nothing.
Robert Bruce, Sr.: Nothing?
Robert the Bruce: I have nothing. Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk fought for William Wallace. He fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him. I saw it in his face on the battlefield and it's tearing me apart.
Robert Bruce, Sr.: All men betray. All lose heart.
Robert the Bruce: I DON'T WANT TO LOSE HEART!!!. I want to believe as he does. I will never be on the wrong side again.

Nicolette: [to Isabelle, in French] I hope your husband goes to Scotland and meets Wallace and then you'll be a widow.

Robert Bruce, Sr.: I know it is hard. Being a leader is. Now son, son, look at me. I can not be king. You, and you alone can rule Scotland. What I tell you, you must do. Not for me, not for yourself, but for your country.
