Lord Bottoms: As lord of these lands I shall bless this marriage by taking the bride into my bed on the first night of her union.
Morrison: By God, you will not.

Morrison: Do you remember me?
Lord Bottoms: I never did her any harm. It was my right.
Morrison: Your right? Well, I'm here to claim the right of a husband.

Longshanks: Scottish rebels have routed one of my garrisons and murdered the noble lord.
Prince Edward: I heard. This Wallace is a brigand, nothing more.
Longshanks: And how would you deal with this 'brigand?'
Prince Edward: Like any common thief. Have the local magistrate arrest him and punish him accordingly.

Robert the Bruce: I'm not a coward. I want what you want, but we need the nobles.
William Wallace: We need them?
Robert the Bruce: Aye
William Wallace: Nobles. Now tell me, what does that mean to be noble? Your title gives you claim to the throne of our country, but men don't follow titles, they follow courage. Now our people know you. Noble, and common, they respect you. And if you would just lead them to freedom, they'd follow you. And so would I.

MacGregor: We heard about what was happenin' and didn't want you "Amadans" to have all the fun.
William Wallace: Some of us are in this; the rest of you, go home.
MacGregor: Go home to what? Our houses and farms burned when the English garrison comes down from the castle? And you know they will!

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

William Wallace

William Wallace: The answer is yes. Fight for me, you get to kill the English.
Stephen: Excellent.

Longshanks: What news of the North?
Prince Edward: Nothing new, your majesty. We've sent riders to speed any word.
Longshanks: I heard word in France where I was fighting to expand your future kingdom. The word, my son, is that our entire Northern Army is ANNIHILATED.

Princess Isabelle: I've come to beg for the life of William Wallace.
Prince Edward: [scoffs] You're quite taken with him, aren't you?

[Discussing the Scottish rebellion] Who shall I sent to negotiate with this Wallace? Not my gentle son, his appearance would only encourage Wallace to move further into England.
