[epilogue/voiceover] In the Year of our Lord 1314, patriots of Scotland -- starving and outnumbered -- charged the fields of Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets; they fought like Scotsmen, and won their freedom.

William Wallace

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

William Wallace

You have bled with Wallace, now bleed with me.

Robert the Bruce

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

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.

The king will be dead in a month and his son is a weakling. Who do you think is going to rule this kingdom?

Princess Isabelle

Englishmen don't know what a tongue is for.

Nicolette

Robert the Bruce: Lands, titles, men, power... nothing.
Robert's Father: Nothing?
Robert the Bruce: I have nothing. Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk fought for William Wallace. He fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him. I saw it in his face on the battlefield and it's tearing me apart.
Robert's Father: All men betray. All lose heart.
Robert the Bruce: I don't want to lose heart. I want to believe as he does.

Whom do I send? Not my gentle son. The mere sight of him would only encourage an enemy to take over the whole country.

Longshanks

In order to converse with an equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God.

Stephen

The Almighty says this must be a fashionable fight. It's drawn the finest people.

Stephen

[to Prince Edward] One day you will be a king. At least try to act like one.
