Marian: [to Robin, as Djaq rushes out of the cave to get herbs] So. "Never lie to a dying man."
Robin Hood: You are not going to die. And I have never lied to you.
Marian: Oh come on. We have never once spoken the truth to each other.
Robin Hood: Now is not the time to argue.
Marian: Do not *tell* me when it is the time to argue!
Robin Hood: Well, I do not think there could be *much* wrong with you.
Marian: I am serious! We have never once spoken the truth to each other! For instance, I call you a fool when I mean you are a hero. I criticize your actions and then mimic them myself as the Nightwatchman. I chastise Robin Hood...
Robin Hood: Shh, shh.
Marian: I will not be *shushed*- these might be my last words!
Robin Hood: No, they will not be- they *cannot* be!... Because we should be together! I should never have left you. I should never have gone to war- it was a mistake! You were right. We wanted glory. But believe me, the battlefield is the *last* place you will find it.
Marian: You'd always regret it if you haven't gone.
Robin Hood: But not as much as I regret going. Not as much as I regret losing you. Marian, I should not have gone.
Marian: [fighting tears] Robin...
Djaq: [running back in with the herbs] I love you, you love me, we all love each other. Drink the wine.
Robin Hood: [Yelling at Marian] Every time you go out, you get arrested, or stabbed- or *betrothed*!
Much: [as he fixes breakfast] You think Marian'll want anything to eat?
Much: What is it girls eat?
Djaq: [Fiddling with some herbs in a bowl] Special girl's food.
Djaq: [to Much] Pray to your God... and to mine. She is going to die.
Marian: I'm a nuisance.
Robin Hood: [smiling] Yes, you are.
Marian: [smiling weakly] You're supposed to say no.
Djaq: [Looking at Marian's infected wound] My father treated the wounded in the battlefield. He said, "Never lie to a wounded man."
Marian: Or was it "Never lie to a dying man?"
Djaq: [pause] He said that too.
Much: [as he is applying pressure to Marian's wound, as well as holding his finger in the wound] I'm not doing anything; I'm just pressing, right?
Djaq: Yes. There's not much else we can do. The other physician has the instruments.
Much: [pause] Should I be able to feel a heartbeat?
[Much looks at her, distraught]
Djaq: [Djaq rushes to Marian, checks her then pounds her chest with her fist]
Much: [Stopping her] What are you doing, what are you doing? You'll hurt her!
Djaq: Trust me, Much! Where she is, she cannot feel a thing!
Much: [Djaq begins repeatedly pounding Marian's chest] Come on, come on, Marian.
Much: [Feeling Marian's pulse in the wound] YES! YES!
Djaq: ALLAH BE PRAISED!
Much: [Throwing his arms in the air] ALLAH BE PRAISED!
Little John: [Raising his arms likewise] ALLAH BE PRAISED!
Much: Well, how did you do that?
Djaq: Put your finger back in! Now!
[Much puts his finger back in the wound]
Robin Hood: I will expose him as the liar and the traitor that he is- then you will not have to marry him!
Marian: Robin, please do not make this more difficult than it already is!
Robin Hood: But you do not love him!
Marian: [trying to make an excuse] He has qualities!
Guy of Gisborne: [as he breaks down the door] Time to play, Night Watchman!
Djaq: I will cut you open. If I can find the damage, I will sew it up.
Marian: And what are my chances?
Djaq: If I do not do this- none. If I do- very little.
Pitts: [to Robin] What did you think? That Gisborne did not tell me that one day somebody might come asking about his alibi? That we did not have a plan in place for just this occasion?
Pitts: [mockingly] Wish your ride is over?
[walks towards the entrance to the cave, but stops right beside Robin]
Pitts: Your friend is dead.
Much: Bats. I hate bats. Bats are rats. Rats with wings.
Djaq: No, they're intelligent. Bats make noises you cannot hear.
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.
Marian: I'm a nuisance.
Robin Hood: Yes, you are.
Marian: You're supposed to say no.
Robin Hood: And you should be at home doing your embroidery.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Robin! Robin! Come out, come out, wherever you are.
