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


Who is this person that speaks to me as though I needed his advice?


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

You have bled with Wallace, now bleed with me.

Robert the Bruce

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


Not the archers. My scouts tell me their archers are miles away and no threat to us. Arrows cost money. Use up the Irish. Their dead cost nothing.


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.

Robert's Father: At last, you know what it means to hate. Now you're ready to be a king.
Robert the Bruce: My hate will die with you.

They are saying goodbye in their own way. Playing outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes.

Braveheart Quotes

[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

William Wallace: You dropped your rock.
Hamish: It's a test of manhood.
William Wallace: You win.
Hamish: Call it a test of soldiery then. The English won't let us train with weapons, so we train with stones.
