Robin of Locksley
Sheriff of Nottingham

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.

Maid Marian: Get away!
Mortianna: She is ripe. She will give us a son. You must take her now.
Sheriff of Nottingham: I will not take her until we are properly wed! For once in my life, I will have something pure. Will you stop interfering?
Bishop of Hereford: It's madness to delay.
Mortianna: Marry them or face me!

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?

Friar Tuck: [singing drunkenly] Old King Richard's gone to war, loves his wine and warring/But those of us hwo stay at home, there's only beer and whoring/Play the music, dance the day, think not of tomorrow...

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.

Azeem: Alas, I am not permitted.
Friat Tuck: Fine then, you talk, I'll drink.

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

Will Scarlet: [after Robin and Azeem are successfully catapulted over a wall] **** me, he cleared it!

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)

Sheriff of Nottingham: In ten days time, the barons are coming. Robin Hood has stolen what I was to pay for their alliance. And I'm surrounded by fools who do not realize my obligations. Tell me, Mortianna. Am I affronted?
Mortianna: Recruit the beasts that share our god.

Mortianna: From the North.
Sheriff of Nottingham: You mean celts? They drink the blood of their dead!

Small Girl: Why?

Sir Guy of Gisborne: Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?
Sheriff of Nottingham: Because it's dull, you twit! It'll hurt more! I want this brigand found. Starve them out, slaughter there... No, take their live stock. I want Locksley's own people fighting to bring his head in.
Sir Guy of Gisborne: Perhaps, we could create a name for him. Something to drive fear in the hearts of the populace, maybe "Locksley the Lethal" or "Wreaking Robin".
Sheriff of Nottingham: Whatever! I want him dead by the next full moon, before the barons come back. Now, sew... and keep the stitches small!

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!

Robin of Locksley: You were to use this information to get close to me and then kill me, isn't that right? What are you intentions?
Will Scarlett: Well, that depends on you, Locksley. I never trusted you, that's no secret. But what I want to know is, are you gonna finish what you started? I want to know if he's gonna turn and run like the spoiled little rich boy I always took him for.
Robin of Locksley: Did I wrong you in another life, Will Scarlett? Where does this intolerable hatred for me come from?
Will Scarlett: From knowing that... that our father loved you more than me.
Robin of Locksley: Our father?
Will Scarlett: We are brothers, Robin of Locksley. I am the son of the woman who replaced your dead mother for a time. It was your anger that drove them apart!
Robin of Locksley: It's a lie!
Will Scarlett: It's not a lie! You ruined my life! I have more reason to hate you than anyone. Yet I found myself daring to believe in you. And what I want to know, brother, is will you stay with us and finish what you started?
