    • Sheriff: We will extend the Count every courtesy, Gisborne. I've taken my bath six months early for a reason!

    • Sheriff: (to Marian) When the Count arrives I want you to smile for him, and buy yourself a gown that um… shall I say, stimulates the imagination? (he throws a single coin to Gisborne) Cheaper the better I think.

    • Robin: England needs me.
      Marian: Yes, England needs me. England needs us.
      Robin: And I need you.

    • Stephen: Will, still passionate, angry?
      Will: Lots to be angry about.

    • Marian: Why does a potential freedom fighter waste his life gambling?
      Count Friedrich: I am a Count. My life has been managed since the day I was born. Tradition, etiquette, it's all so safe. I crave danger, you wouldn't understand.

  • NOTES (0)


    • This episode of Robin Hood is likely a reference to the recent remake of the film Ocean's 11.
      In this episode Robin and his men plan on stealing the gold from a seemingly impossible to rob strong room carrying the money from "Games night" at the Sherrif's great hall. Much like Danny Ocean and his crew rob the vault of a casino in the film. Also like in the film, Robin and the gang prepare for the robbery by creating an exact replica of the strong room for the sake of perfecting the robbery itself.
