I love you. Always have. I want to marry you.

William Wallace

William Wallace: Why do you help me?
Princess Isabelle: Because of the way you are looking at me now.

It's fine Scottish weather we're having. The rain is falling straight down and kind of to the side like.

William Wallace

I came home to raise crops, and God willing, a family. If I can live in peace, I will.

William Wallace

Princess Isabelle: I understand you have suffered. I know... about your woman.
William Wallace: [sighs, pauses] She was my wife. We married in secret because I would not share her with an English lord. They killed her to get to me. I've never spoken of it, I don't know why I tell you now, except... I see her strength in you. One day, you will be a queen. And you must open your eyes.
[regains composure, speaks firmly]
William Wallace: You tell your king that William Wallace will NOT be ruled... and nor will any Scot while I live.

Lower your flags and march straight back to England, stopping at every home to beg forgiveness for a hundred years of theft, rape, and murder. Do this and your men shall live. Do it not, and every one of you will die today.

William Wallace

There's a difference between us. You think the people of this land exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.

William Wallace

Hamish: Personal escort of the princess.
William Wallace: Aye.
Hamish: Musta made an impression.
William Wallace: Aye.
Hamish: I didn't think you were in the tent that long.

Young William: I can fight.
Malcolm Wallace: I know. I know you can fight. But it's our wits that make us men.

Are you ready for a war?

William Wallace

It's all for nothing if you don't have freedom.

William Wallace

Princess Isabelle: The king desires peace.
William Wallace: Longshanks desires peace?
Princess Isabelle: He declares it to me, I swear it. He proposes that you withdraw your attack. In return he grants you title, estates, and this chest of gold which I am to pay to you personally.
William Wallace: A lordship and titles. Gold. That I should become Judas?
Princess Isabelle: Peace is made in such ways.
William Wallace: Slaves are made in such ways. The last time Longshanks spoke of peace I was a boy. And many Scottish nobles, who would not be slaves, were lured by him under a flag of truce to a barn, where he had them hanged. I was very young, but I remember Longshanks' notion of peace.
