Robert the Bruce:
I respect what you said, but remember that these men have lands and castles. It's much to risk.
And the common man, who bleeds on the battlefield, does he risk less?
[to Princess] Sanguinarius homo indomitus est, et se me dite cum mendacia. [He is a bloody murdering savage. And he's telling lies]
Ego nunquam pronunciari mendacium! Sed ego sum homo indomitus. [I never lie. But I am a savage]
[to Princess] Ou en français, si vous préférez? [Or in French if you prefer?]
What news of the North?
Nothing new, Your Majesty. We've sent riders to speed any word.
I heard the word in France where I was fighting to expand your future kingdom. The word, my son, is that our entire Northern Army is *annihilated*.
[after Hamish drops a boulder at Wallace's feet] You dropped your rock.
Test of manhood.
Call it a test of soldiery then. The English won't let us train with weapons, so we train with stones.
Your dream isn't about freedom. It's about Murron! You're doing this to be a hero, 'cause ya think she sees ye!
I don't think she sees me. I *know* she does. And your father sees you, too. [Hamish punches him, knocks him down, and stalks off]
[to the sky as he goes to help William up] Jesus.
Milord, the princess might be taken hostage or her life be put in jeopardy.
Oh, my son would be most distressed by that. Uh, but in truth, if she were to be killed, we would soon find the king of France a useful ally against the Scots. You see, as king, you must find the good in any situation.
