Arthur: Why are you doing this?
Uther: I did not spend my entire life building this kingdom to see my own son destroy it.
Arthur: You tried to kill Guinevere.
Uther: For your own good. How can a serving girl understand what it means to be Queen?
Arthur: Guinevere is wise, and strong, and I trust her more than anyone.
Uther: And that is your weakness. You put too much trust in other people. You, and you alone must rule Camelot.
Arthur: I would rather not rule at all, than rule alone.
