Guy of Gisbourne
Robin: (After Robin helps Rowan win the silver arrow) That arrow will help feed the miners for an entire winter.
Much: Come on lets go.
Marian: Better late then never I suppose, make sure this one wins the silver arrow.
Rowan: Robin help me.
Robin: Where are the others?
Alan-A-Dale: Hey Rowan will be sorry he missed the blaze.
Djaq: Him, he's gone to the fair.
Robin: Why? Gisborne is here.
Djaq: Gisborne's woman, to tear his heart out by killing his woman.
Robin: Gisborne hasn't got a woman (Robin realises who Djaq is talking about) Marian.
Robin: (After Robin sets the mine on fire) Does anyone smell burning?
Sheriff of Nottingham: Get the fire out, forget the outlaws save the mine.
Robin: Never forget the outlaws.
Robin: Light fires around the beams and inside.
Rowan: Let me light them, I'll burn the place to ground.
Much: I don't think so we'll do that.
Robin: No let Rowan for his father.
Rowan: You cannot let them get away.
Robin: If the Sheriff or Gisborne dead would help Nottingham, Iwould have killed them months ago.
Rowan: But they deserve to die.
Robin: Please let me explain, then if you do not wish to help us you are free to go, you have my word. What is your name?
Robin: Djaq we will help you escape but if you leave now the sheriff will still need workers for his mine, more prisoners will arrive next month, people like you. We are going to destroy the mine but we need your help.
Djaq: You do not trust that he can see into your heart?
Much: Of course I trust he can. I could renounce him like that. I do not believe in God, there I don't.
Alan-A-Dale: Come on help me tie the brooker up.
Much: (Walks away and looks up in the sky) I do believe obviously.
Rowan: Why did i do that? Why did I tell him to stand up to Gisborne I should have just kept my mouth shut. I told him to stand up for himself, but what did i do? Gisborne and the sheriff walked straight pass me and I did nothing.
Much: (Robin and the gang find a man who is delivering slaves to the sheriff) I never thought I'd see this again. Outrages, disgrace, trading people.
Rowan: (At his fathers funeral after he was killed by Gisborne) Gisborne will pay.
Rowan's Father: We will not go down there again.
Guy of Gisborne: You will do as I say.
Rowan's Father: My brother is dead.
Guy of Gisborne: And your behaviour suggests that you care to join him.
Rowan's Father: We are on strike.
Robin: Djaq, come and join us.
Djaq: For good?
Robin: Well, I was thinking just for dinner but…
Djaq: I was thinking for good. Perhaps I should have let your big friend here die, huh? Then there would have been a vacancy.
Will Scarlett: It wouldn't be safe for you to join us.
Robin: For us or for him?
Will Scarlett: For her.
Robin: I guessed as much. What's your name? Your real name.
Djaq: But I prefer you to call me Djaq.
Robin: Djaq. Well, your expertise did help to save Little John's life, for which we will be eternally indebted. Anyone have a problem with a woman joining the gang?
(the others shake their heads)
Much: Can you…?
Djaq: I'm a rubbish cook.
Robin: Well, looks like we're cooking dinner then.
(Rowan has his bow ready to shoot Marian)
Rowan: My lady. It'll be quick. I'm a good shot.
Marian: Your father died at the mine, didn't he?
Rowan: How do you know?
Marian: It's difficult to explain. But I know he must have loved you very much. Everybody knew how dangerous it was to go down that mine.
Rowan: I told him not to.
Marian: He wanted to feed you and your family.
Rowan: Your lover knew it wasn't safe!
Marian: Your father must have known too.
Rowan: I'm going to kill you. Make him suffer. Make him understand loss.
Marian: At the cost of your own life?
Rowan: It's what Gisborne deserves.
Marian: Your mother will lose the man of her house twice. What about her suffering?
Rowan: I can't do nothing! Just stand and do nothing.
Marian: Well, if you want to hurt the Sheriff, win his silver arrow. You say you are a good shot. Win it. Use the silver, melt it down into coins. You could feed your family for months. Compensate all the miners' widows. Or would you rather shoot an unarmed woman?
Brooker: Can I not keep the money?
Robin: You are a despicable, heartless, soulless slave trader, lucky to escape with your life.
Much: That's a no.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Thanks to the rogue element amongst you, I have been forced to introduce new security measures. The guilty object to security because the guilty have something to hide. So, I expect your full co-operation. No man shall wear a sleeve on his left arm. (pause) Oh, and do have a lovely fair. Thank you.
Much: I have a simple yet effective way of gaining you freedom, and a lot less dangerous that riding into a heavily guarded mine.
Djaq: Opening the cage. That is simple and effective.
Much: No. This is clever. Renounce your God. Then nobody can buy or sell you.
Djaq: Renounce my God?
Much: And claim you believe in the Christian one. But it's alright, because gods are all-knowing, so your God will know you're only pretending.
Djaq: Why would I pretend to be Christian? You kill my people in the name of Christianity!
Much: Sh! Christians cannot be traded. The Sheriff will not buy you, you can go free and we… can go home and eat.
Robin: There is nothing to fear. Once the guards believe that the prisoners have a disease, they'll run for their lives.
Much: Oh, surely only the stupid amongst them is going to fall for it. I mean, Turk flu?
Robin: People fear what they don't understand.
Sheriff of Nottingham: (as they pass a group of mourning women) Women. How do they manage to hit that particular pitch that makes you want to pierce your own eardrums with a stick? Never marry, Gisborne. Women. Keep them at a distance. Think… think leper.
Brooker: There used to be a decent living being made from selling folk. Then the Pope goes and bans trading Christians. Thank heavens King Richard likes his wars abroad.
Sir Edward: I think you owe me an explanation, young lady. It was you, wasn't it?
Marian: There are people starving, people whose menfolk have died at the mine. Should we do nothing?
Sir Edward: What? You think you're Robin Hood now? (Marian closes the door on her father) Is that it? You're in competition with Robin?
Marian: It is no competition. I've been helping people far longer than him.
Sir Edward: How much longer?
Marian: Three years.
Sir Edward: I do not know you at all, do I?
Guy of Gisborne: Today, I am attending… I'm sure you would expect… you yourself may also have the intention… but I thought even so it would not necessarily make my question redundant.
Guy of Gisborne: The Sheriff's Fair
Guy of Gisborne: So, what's your answer?
Marian: Forgive me, Sir Guy, I do not yet understand the question.
Guy of Gisborne: I am inviting you to the fair as my personal guest.
Guy of Gisborne: They claim they would rather die than go back down
Sheriff of Nottingham: You're giving them choices?
(Gisborne turns around and stabs Rowan's father, killing him)
