"Robin Hood: Something Worth Fighting For: Part 1 (#3.12)" (2009)
Guy of Gisborne: I'll take that.
[Takes letter from Messenger]
Robin Hood: Tie him up, then!
Tuck: [Taking letter from Gisborne and opening it] It's from Isabella to Prince John. "My Prince, I understand the urgency of your request. Richard returns from the crusades within the month. Troops loyal to him await his return in Loughborough. We must be ready."
Allan A Dale: Richard. King Richard?
Kate: The King's coming home.
Robin Hood: Read the rest.
Tuck: "You asked for 300 men, food, and supplies. I will dispatch them at sunset to join with your northern forces in Doncaster."
Robin Hood: So where's Isabella got 300 men from?
Tuck: "England will soon be yours."
Robin Hood: [to Messenger] You give the Sheriff this message. England will never be a slave to Prince John, not while Robin Hood fights for King Richard!

Robin Hood: All of this needs to be made into arrow heads.
Much: Robin.
Robin Hood: We're running out of time.
Much: Robin!
Robin Hood: Where's Tuck and John with those tools?
Much: She's gone. Kate.
[to Allan]
Much: You say something?
Allan A Dale: Why is it always my fault?
Much: We got to find her.
Robin Hood: Much, Kate can look after herself. She's got a family to protect, we've got a castle to take.

Little John: TRAITOR!
[Choking Allan]
Little John: What did you tell them, Judas?
Tuck: It's all over Nottingham. Allan's been pardoned by the Sheriff for services rendered.
Allan A Dale: WHAT?
Robin Hood: John, let him go.
Allan A Dale: Let me speak!
Little John: Oh, yeah, you're good at that, aren't you? Speaking, lying...
Robin Hood: John! John, come on! Let him go.
Tuck: Come on.
Little John: [as he's pulled off Allan] Liar!
Robin Hood: [to Allan] All right?
Allan A Dale: I have done anything! I swear, I haven't betrayed you! Much!
[Much stares stony faced]
Allan A Dale: ... You believe me, Guy. Tuck? Robin. So you think I'm a coward? Is that it, yeah? What, that I've... sold you out to save myself somehow, yeah?
Much: You've done that before.
Allan A Dale: I know. And EVERY DAY I wish I could take that back, you know that! None of you? None of you believe me?... I'll be off, then.
Much: No. You tell her about the tunnel?
Allan A Dale: I told you, I haven't said...
Robin Hood: Tie him up!
Allan A Dale: What? No, no, no, no.
Robin Hood: I can't take the risk.
Allan A Dale: Robin.
Robin Hood: Once we have secured the castle we will come back and we will sort this out.
Allan A Dale: John, don't do this.
Robin Hood: ...get it done.

Allan A Dale: You give them the best years of your life, and for what?

Alan a Dale: Have you seen an innocent flower mercilessly crushed in a mailed fist?
Will Scarlet: He's right round the Maypole!
Alan a Dale: To save the lady of my heart, I would ride through fire!

Robert de Rainault: Get ON with it, man!
Alan a Dale: - to speak now, or from this moment, remain forever silent.
[pause]
Alan a Dale: Let us pray.
[very long pause]
Robert de Rainault: Are we to remain silent for ever?
Alan a Dale: Will you have this woman to be your wedded wife, and live under God's holy law, cleaving her to you, in sickness and in health, so... so long as... so... s...
Robert de Rainault: So long as you both shall live! Good God, man, I know it better than you do! I will!

Allan A Dale: We helped you. We're giving you a bed for the night. Are you not just slightly grateful?
Kate: Oh, I'm so grateful! Thank you all for ruining everything. I can really see why you guys are so legendary.
Allan A Dale: Well aren't you sweet and charming, eh?
Kate: Aren't you full of yourself?
Allan A Dale: Full of myself? Oh, you've gone too far now Kate, I'm - I'm wounded! Truly, my heart is broken.
Kate: Well, I'm sure some drunken girl with no taste will make it better.
Allan A Dale: Funny you should say that...

Much: You hear that?
Allan A Dale: Which bit? Kate being sarcastic? Kate being ungrateful?
Much: What she said about us! "You guys are legendary!" Plural. Referring to all of us, not just Robin. She may have turned me down, but she thinks I'm legendary.

Kate: Damn! Damn damn DAMN! What now, Allan, what happens now?
Allan A Dale: There's no way out.
Kate: Yes, I can see that. And then Rufus will come, and we'll be dead. And how can I help my family if I'm dead? They need me.
Allan A Dale: ...I've been in worse, if that helps.
Kate: It doesn't help, it's just annoying. Like you're showing off.
Allan A Dale: Look, this isn't fun for me either, you know! I mean, I'm stuck in here with you, and, well, you're not exactly easy on the eye, are you?
Kate: You don't think I'm pretty?
Allan A Dale: Just a little plain for my taste.
Kate: I think your neck's too long.
Allan A Dale: My neck? Nose? Maybe.
[Kate laughs]
Allan A Dale: That's the first time I've seen you smile! Wouldn't do it, actually, not your best look.
Kate: Do you know, looking at you actually makes me want to be a little bit sick.
Allan A Dale: You feel better yet?
Kate: Yeah. Yeah, insulting you definitely helps.
Allan A Dale: Good! Before we carry on though, I think you might wanna move. I think you just sat down on a pig kidney.

Little John: ...what?
[Robin knocks him out with staff]
Much: HEY! Hey, ROBIN!
Robin Hood: I SAID, STOP. HOLDING. ME. BACK!
Allan A Dale: You can't do this alone.
Robin Hood: And what are you going to do, Allan, eh? What are you going to do? Rat me out?
Allan A Dale: That's a bit harsh.
Robin Hood: Once a traitor, always a traitor!
Much: That's not fair.
Robin Hood: You shut up! You leech! You're pathetic.
Allan A Dale: You're tired, Robin. We've been traveling for months.
Robin Hood: And I've had time to think! And I've made up my mind. I don't need you anymore - any of you.
Much: You don't mean that. This is not you! None of this!
Robin Hood: MUCH, IT'S OVER! ROBIN HOOD IS FINISHED.

Allan A Dale: Oh, I think it's established that Much's the girl around here.

Allan A Dale: Yeah? Prove it.

Allan A Dale: I am!
Little John: Then why are you walking beside me?
Allan A Dale: Maybe we're going to the same place, eh?
Little John: Maybe we are. You still don't need to walk beside me. There are many roads to the same place, Allan.
Allan A Dale: Yes, there are. We all believe the same things, John.
Little John: No, I don't know that I do.
Allan A Dale: Well, I know we do. Hey, I know we need you around, all right, to remind us who it is we're fighting for here. All right? We're lost without you.
Little John: No. GO AWAY!

Allan A Dale: What are you doing? I was gonna finish him off!

Much: ...so they tried to fight their way out, and that's when her brother was killed. And then all hell broke loose, and then Gisborne found out that Robin was with them, and now the Sheriff has Robin in the castle, heavily guarded.
Little John: Right. We go to Nottingham.
Kate: What about the village men? They're shipping them out to Ireland today!
Tuck: Robin is our priority.
Kate: Losing an entire generation of men will kill all the villages for miles around. You put one man before stopping that?
Tuck: Kate... villages are dying across England. The only thing that people have is a spark of hope called Robin Hood. He's more important then any one man: he's an idea. Something the people can believe in.
Kate: ...I gave up Robin Hood to Gisborne.
Allan A Dale: You what?
Much: You didn't say that!
Kate: I'd do it again, to save my little brother. He wasn't important enough. He was just a village man who wanted to raise a family and live an honest life. Well, I believed in HIM. Now he's dead. And you think that the idea of Robin Hood is more important then his life. You make me sick.

Marian: Robin... spare him.
Robin Hood: I can't.
Marian: Please. Do it for me.
Robin Hood: Marian, I'm doing this for you. To protect you!
Marian: Robin, ROBIN PLEASE! If you love me, you will let him go.
Robin Hood: I DO love you. That's why I can't let him live.
[tearfully]
Robin Hood: ... because one day, he'll do something to take you away from me.
Allan A Dale: I wouldn't!
Marian: Please... don't taint us with his blood.


"Robin Hood: A Good Day to Die (#2.12)" (2007)

Little John: Why is he coming?
Tuck: He's visiting all the nobles throughout England to grease their palms.
Robin Hood: He's trying to buy their loyalty before King Richard returns, isn't he?
Allan A Dale: What, he thinks it can be bought?
Tuck: He knows it can. He's buying the nobles and their men to seize the throne, so that King Richard returns to King John's England.
Robin Hood: Every noble he buys will bring us closer to a civil war, and a war between Prince John and King Richard... it'll tear this country apart.
Little John: If he's going to buy them, he'll be carrying gold.
Tuck: More then a little.
Robin Hood: Well, we stop him stealing the crown by stealing his gold.
Allan A Dale: [everyone laughs] This is mad!
Little John: Yes, it is. Utterly mad!

Robin Hood: [to angry gang] She said she can help us.
Isabella: Look, I can get you into the castle.
Tuck: You want us to trust her with our lives?
Little John: Gisborne's sister?
Robin Hood: Yes. I trust her with mine.

Much: Then we get captured and I presume, killed.

Allan A Dale: What's the point of that? Noises you can't hear?
Much: What if there was a noise nobody could hear? And then if you were the only person in the world who could hear it. Because I am that person. To see sense where others see nonsense. Just like the bat. I take it back. I like the bat! The bat is my friend. The bat understands me.

Tuck: Robin couldn't have made it.
Kate: You should have kept moving, Much.
Much: He had a knife in your side!
Allan A Dale: She can take care of herself.
Much: Oh, right. So that's why you stepped in, in the tavern, right.
Allan A Dale: I stepped in 'cause I was worried about her.
Much: You stepped in because you were showing off.
Allan A Dale: What?
Much: I did what I did because I care.
Allan A Dale: *I* care!
Much: You care about yourself.
Allan A Dale: Is that right?
Much: Yes!
Little John: STOP IT!
Tuck: Come on! Robin could be dead and you're squabbling like a couple of school boys!
[Both stop, ashamed]
Tuck: Put them out of their misery, will you?
[to Kate]
Kate: He's right. You know, I'm sick of you two trying to protect me. We've got to keep our minds on the mission.
Much: Right.

Kate: ...what about Robin?
