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!
Archer: The name's Archer.
Blamire: Archer. Archer What?
Archer: Just Archer.
Blamire: Archer. Weren't you due to hang in York?
Archer: Me? Hang? York? I don't know anything about that.
Blamire: That's right. He's the one Hood and Gisborne broke out of prison. Many of my men were injured.
Archer: I never asked them to do that, they just turned up.
Isabella: Arrest him.
Archer: That Robin Hood's a nut! He feels compelled to go about saving people.
Isabella: Even so, did you think I would fraternize with such a lowlife as you?
Archer: You would if you knew the truth.
Robin Hood: We have to get the rest of out supplies to Locksley, that'll keep the women and children alive until we return their crops and livestock.
Tuck: Robin. What about the men?
Robin Hood: What about them?
Tuck: Well, when are they going to fight?
Robin Hood: Tuck. These men are farmers, they're not warriors.
Tuck: The Lord helps those who help themselves, Robin. Your protection weakens them. We are failing in our mission. We're supposed to be inspiring these men to stand up and fight for themselves, giving them real hope.
Robin Hood: These men are terrified for their lives! They've forgotten how to hope.
Tuck: Then, my friend, it's time we lit the flame in them again.
Isabella: If I disappoint the Prince, I hang like every other Noble who's ever failed him. Blamire, I need those men.
Blamire: Tricky. Hood's protecting them in the forest.
Isabella: Then it's Hood I need to destroy. I need to get to his weakness, exploit his vulnerabilities.
Blamire: Which are?
Isabella: His friends. That odious little gang. The idiot cares about them, that's his weakness. Blamire, bring me Kate's mother from Locksley.
Robin Hood: We take the castle. We claim it under King Richard. We put Isabella under house arrest, we release the supplies, we release the men. And we hold that castle till King Richard returns.
Much: We can't take a castle!
Guy of Gisborne: We can if we go down the tunnel. When the old Sheriff returned from his failed mission in the holy lands, he became paranoid about repercussions. So he built himself an escape route. A tunnel. The diggers were silenced, I made sure of that. So no one else knows about the tunnel, especially not Isabella. It starts here, in a derelict churchyard outside the west gate, and it leads directly into the heart of the castle. I say we go down the tunnel, we seize Isabella, and we force her to dismiss her guards. If we take Isabella, we take the castle.
Robin Hood: If we time the break-in to coincide with the supply train leaving, most of the guards will be busy with the convoy anyway.
Kate: Count me out. I don't trust him!
Little John: How do we know this isn't a trap?
Guy of Gisborne: Because we want the same thing.
Kate: Since when have you cared about our people?
Guy of Gisborne: I don't. I just want Isabella. She betrayed me to Prince John and I intend to make her pay.
Kate: Now THAT sounds more like the Gisborne we all know and loathe!
Robin Hood: That's enough! We go through the tunnel! And that's my final word. Gisborne is one of us now. Our fate is his.
Robin Hood: Kate, listen. Gisborne's loyal. I'd stake my life on it.
Kate: He killed my brother. I will never, never trust him.
Robin Hood: Well, you can trust me.
Kate: Can I?
Robin Hood: What? What do you mean?
Kate: I've left my family. I'm not there with them, I'm here. With you.
Robin Hood: And you're helping, Kate. You're making a difference.
Kate: Tell me you need me more then they do.
Robin Hood: ...I have to prepare for the raid.
Robin Hood: All of this needs to be made into arrow heads.
Robin Hood: We're running out of time.
Robin Hood: Where's Tuck and John with those tools?
Much: She's gone. Kate.
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!
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.
Robin Hood: We get into the castle, we capture Isabella, release the villagers. If the convoy leaves, then we've failed. Tuck, John, it's up to you to stop it, no matter what.
Robin Hood: [beat] This could be the last time we see each other.
Tuck: Those of you who can fight must help us intercept the supply train. Those are your crops inside the castle, your livestock. Your brothers! Damn it, men, it's time to stand up and fight! Take back what's rightfully yours!
Little John: Brother Tuck...
Tuck: They've been trodden on, John, and they're taking it! If they would only stand together, they can defeat the Sheriff.
Little John: Defeating the Sheriff is our job, Tuck! Even if it is the last thing we ever do.
Rebecca: This is the right thing to do.
Kate: I know.
Rebecca: Your brother was stupid enough to get himself killed for Robin's ridiculous cause. At least you've got the good sense to run away while you...
Kate: I'm not running away! But if he's in league with her, then I don't understand anything anymore! I thought I loved him.
Rebecca: Oh, Kate...
Kate: ...I didn't know I could love someone like that.
Allan A Dale: You give them the best years of your life, and for what?
Tuck: Nearly time.
Little John: It's quiet, isn't it? Calm. Like when you're hunting. The moment you spot your prey, your stag, there's a... stillness. Just for a moment. You wonder whether you can go through with it, whether you can slaughter this beast with so much...
Little John: Yeah. Dignity.
Little John: They're brave, but they can't fight, Tuck. Look at them, it'll be a massacre.
Tuck: They're not going to fight, John.
Little John: What?
Tuck: Gentlemen. These gates will open soon. Now, it is our task to stop the supply train in it tracks, and that is exactly what we're going to do. As an army, as a militia, we would be crushed. The Sheriff's men would hack us down like weeds. But it's harder to cut the spirit with a blade. When these gates open, when the supply train pulls out, we are going to sit down. Just sit. In silence. My friends, we are going to turn the other cheek.
Little John: They will be - WE will be crushed.
Tuck: Dignity, John, dignity! Even when everything has been taken from us, we still have that. And the Sheriff's men will be faced with a choice - stand aside or carry out a massacre.
Little John: These are the Sheriff's men. I think we know what choice they're going to make.
Tuck: They may be soldiers, John, but they are still men. Just men. And faced with the power of truth, a man can change. If we all stand together, we can have that power. We can be unstoppable.
Much: There's no way out.
Robin Hood: There's always a way out, Much.
Much: So this is how it ends. This is how we die, buried in limestone. Hardly fair, is it?
Robin Hood: If one of us can reach the top, we can hold out longer. Much, come here. Gisborne, get on our shoulders.
Much: No! It's got to be you, Robin! You're the one who has to live! It has to be you.
Kate: Oh Robin! No, no, no, no, no, no. Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on. Come on, come on! I need you! Breathe!
Kate: [as Robin wakes] I thought I'd lost you!
Robin Hood: [Weakly] I thought I'd lost you.
Kate: My mother planted that locket, I should never have doubted you. Isabella was trying to rip us apart.
Robin Hood: Well, that means Allan's innocent.
Robin Hood: She's been playing with us all along.
Kate: You forced my mother to lie to me. You tried to poison me against Robin.
Isabella: So what of it? You don't belong together. An ill-raised peasant? Hardly a worthy companion for a man of noble birth.
Robin Hood: In the name of King Richard, I charge Isabella of Gisborne with high treason and crimes against the people of Nottingham! The castle and everything in it belongs to the people!
Blamire: My lord.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Blamire, you old tomcat. How the devil are you?
Blamire: The plan is in place.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Good. Oh, this will be so much fun.
Isabella: The peasants are trying to get into the castle. You have to protect me!
Blamire: Can't help. Sorry.
Isabella: They're going to tear me to pieces.
Blamire: Not my problem. I've got to be somewhere else.
Isabella: I just gave you an order.
Blamire: You have no idea what's happening here, do you?
Isabella: What? You can't just leave me here to be massacred by this rabble. Please! For pity's sake, help me.
Blamire: If you want to save yourself, hear this. Deliver Gisborne to the tunnel.
Isabella: That doesn't make any sense, Gisborne is dead.
Blamire: Goodbye, Sheriff. And good luck.
