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.

Stephen: Excellent.

Hamish: Where are you going?

Hamish: It's a test of manhood.
