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?


Robin of Locksley: I've seen enough blood spilled to last two lifetimes. Now get off my land! And tell Nottingham what happens to his scum when they pick on small children! [to Azeem] And you! You travel ten thousand miles to save my life and leave me to be butchered?!
Azeem: I fulfill my vows when I choose!
Robin of Locksley: Which does not include prayer times, meal times, or anytime I'm outnumbered six to one.
Azeem: You whine like a mule. You are still alive!

Sheriff of Nottingham: Will you keep the noise down, please? Now I have heard that Robin Hood may still be alive. Either tell me where he may be hiding, or you will all be hanged and we will catch him anyway and do the same thing to him.
Will Scarlett: I'd love to kill him for you.
Wulf: Will, no!
Sheriff of Nottingham: So he is alive, then?
Will Scarlett: I'm not really sure.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Then why would I need you?
Will Scarlett: Because, my lord, if he is alive, I can get close to him. I'm one of his men. He would never suspect me.
Wulf: He knows you always hated him, traitor!
Sheriff of Nottingham, Will Scarlett: Shut up!
Will Scarlett: He's trusting fool. He'll believe me. And if he doesn't, he'll kill me. Then you've lost nothing.
Sheriff of Nottingham: If you fail, I will personally remove your lying tongue.
Will Scarlett: And if I succeed, I get my freedom and the bounty on his head.
Sheriff of Nottingham: The lash, I think! Sorry about that. It'll make it more convincing.

King Richard: I will not allow this wedding to proceed!
Robin of Locksley: My lord!
King Richard: Unless, I'm allowed to give the bride away! You look radiant, cousin.
Maid Marian: Oh, Richard.
Robin of Locksley: I am deeply honored, Your Majesty.
King Richard: It is I who am honored, Lord Locksley. Thanks to you, I still have the throne. Friar, proceed!

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

Sheriff of Nottingham: Cousin, I justify your intrusion with news of profound value?
Sir Guy of Gisborne: I met a hooded man today who made me warn you not to harm his people.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Who told you to cover up? His name?
Sir Guy of Gisborne: Robin of Locksley.
Sheriff of Nottingham: The prodigal son returns. He's a whelp! This girl could best him. Put it there!
Sir Guy of Gisborne: Yes, well, this whelp has bested four of my men.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Yes, well, your men were probably drunk. And yet you survived, cousin.
Sir Guy of Gisborne: I've barely survived. He has a companion, a dark skinned foreigner with a dark face of Islam and a Saracens sword.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Yes, yes, I'm sure it would take an army to match these rogues. I trust Locksley's visit to his manor and found the home fires still burning!

Friar Tuck: Come on, get out of it. We waste good celebration time.

Robin of Locksley: Have we lost them?
Azeem: No. My horse carries two, and yours is lame. We can not outrun them.
Duncan: Leave me, master Robin, I slow your escape.
Robin of Locksley: We can lose them in the forest.
Duncan: Sherwood Forest is haunted, master.
Robin of Locksley: Either we take our chances with the ghosts or become ghosts ourselves.

Will Scarlett: [singing] There was a rich man from Nottingham who tried to cross a river. What a dope, he tripped on a rope. Now look at him shiver! Beg for mercy, rich man!
Robin of Locksley: I beg of no man.
Will Scarlett: Well, this here is out river, and any man that wishes to cross must pay a tax.
Robin of Locksley: I'll pay no tax, as you can see I have nothing, not even my sword.
Little John: Bollocks! Any man who travels with two servants and claims that he's got no bloody money, is either a fool or a liar.
Will Scarlett: Yeah, he's a liar!

Do you mind Locksley? We've just been married.

Just a minute. Robin Hood steals money from my pocket, forcing me to hurt the public, and they love him for it? That's it, then! Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas!

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]

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!

Sheriff of Nottingham: What a beautiful child. So young, so alive, so unaware of how precarious life can be. I had a very sad childhood, I'll tell you about it sometime. I never knew my parents; it's amazing I'm sane. Marian, our union would allow these children to grow up as my allies. You understand... I cannot allow them to grow up as my enemies.
Maid Marian: I have no choice.
Sheriff of Nottingham: That's true.
