Maid Marian: Men speak conveniently of love when it their serves their purpose. And when it doesn't, it a burden to them. Robin of the Hood, prince of thieves. Is he capable of love?

Duncan: [to Marian] He fancies you, my lady. I am blind, but there are some things I can still see.

Azeem: No man controls my destiny... especially not one who attacks with down wind stinks of garlic.
Robin of Locksley: Come, Azeem, our fighting days are done. By nightfall, we'll celebrate with my father. You'll understand of course, I had to try.
Azeem: I would have succeeded.
<hr width="50%"/ Azeem: In my country, we talk to our women. We do not drug them with plants.
Robin of Locksley: What do you know about women?
Azeem: Where I come from, Christian, there are women of such beauty, that they can posess a man's mind so, that he be willing to die for them.
Robin of Locksley: Wait a minute. Was that why you were to be executed? Because of a woman? That's it, isn't it? That's it?
Azeem: It is close to sunset.
Robin of Locksley: You painted old hound, who was she? The mullah's daughter? Another man's wife? What's her name?
Azeem: Is there no sun in this cursed country? Which way is East?
Robin of Locksley: Her name.
Azeem: East?!
Robin of Locksley: Her name.
Azeem: Jasmina.
Robin of Locksley: [points] That way.

Duncan: A curse on Moors and Saracens! If it were not for their ungodly ways, Master Robin would never have left home. What manner of name is "Azeem"? Irish? Cornish?
Azeem: Moorish. (Duncan cowers)

Maid Marian: Stop them! They're stealing my horses!
Robin of Locksley: You're so kind, Marian.
Sir Guy of Gisborne: Have you been sheltering outlaws, Lady Marian?
Maid Marian: They are thieves, you imbecile!
Sir Guy of Gisborne: Lucky they didn't steal your virtue as well. The crown for the man who brings me Locksley's head, my lady!

Azeem: In my dreams alone have I imagined such a place.
Robin of Locksley: Then imagine a way to cross it.

Maid Marian: There's a price on your head.
Robin of Locksley: How much?
Maid Marian: One hundred gold pieces.
Robin of Locksley: Is that all? I shall have to annoy the good Sheriff more. Soon it will be a thousand.
Maid Marian: For a thousand, I would turn you in myself. Nottingham is mounting an army. He has every blacksmith in the county hold up in the castle making swords and armour.
Robin of Locksley: What is he planning?
Maid Marian: I don't know. There's no limit to the man's ambitions. Go!
Robin of Locksley: Thank you.
Maid Marian: Quickly, go! Robin, do something for me.
Robin of Locksley: What?
Maid Marian: Take a bath.
Robin of Locksley: Take a bath?
[Marian nods]

Maid Marian: How is it, that a once-arrogant young nobleman has found contentment, living rough with the salt of the earth?
Robin of Locksley: I've seen knights in armor panic at the first hint of battle. And I've seen the lowliest, unarmed squire pull a spear from his own body to defend a dying horse. Nobility is not a birthright. It's defined by one's actions.
Maid Marian: It's interesting to hear you say that.
Robin of Locksley: I didn't. My father did.
Maid Marian: Did the holy quest erase your hatred of him?
Robin of Locksley: I don't know. All I know is that our last words in this world were spoken in anger. I was lost after my mother died. My father too, and for a short time he found comfort in the arms of another woman, a peasant woman. I thought he was betraying my mother's memory.
Maid Marian: So he gave her up?
Robin of Locksley: For the love of a twelve-year-old by who would never forgive him.

[about his father] He called the Crusades a foolish quest. He said it was vanity to force our religion upon other men.

I will not rest until my father is avenged. I swear it by my own blood.

[robbing a lady in a carriage] My lady, a woman of your beauty has no need for such... decorations.

The Sheriff calls us outlaws, but I say we are free! And one free men defending his home is more powerful then ten hired soldiers. The Crusades taught me that. I will make you no promises, save one: that when you truly believe in your hearts that you're free, then I say we can win!

Come, my friend! Make his sacrifice an act of honor! Come now.

You have saved my life, Christian. Now, I will stay with you until I have saved yours. That is my vow.

The hospitality of this country is as warm as the weather.
