    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Sheriff of Nottingham: I'll have the flesh whipped from your back!
        Joshua De Talmont: That will not discharge your debt, my lord. It would be more honorable for you, and less painful for me, to let me have the money.

      • Robin of Loxley: We've risked our lives for them time and time again and they turned us away. We could have been strangers.
        Will Scarlet: So you can see it? It's all been for nothing. They're not worth fighting for, they're just serfs and that's all they'll ever be. We could have been rich, every one of us. But no, you had to believe that Herne chose you, that you could give the people heart, give them hope and maybe, just maybe, give them the will to fight. Why don't you be honest to yourself? You're just an outlaw, and that's all you'll ever be.

      • Herne the Hunter: Why have you come?
        Robin of Loxley: To break faith with you.
        Herne the Hunter: You cannot, you were chosen.
        Robin of Loxley: Then choose another.
        Herne the Hunter: There is no other. The little ones will hide in terror, the book of power will take revenge. Your arrows must be ready.
        Robin of Loxley: The target is too far, my aim is lost!
        Herne the Hunter: Then aim again.
        Robin of Loxley: For what purpose? To what end?
        Herne the Hunter: There is no end, and no beginning. It is enough to aim.

      • Joshua De Talmont: The most beautiful thing anyone can do, Sarah, is forgive. It is also the sweetest form of revenge.

      • (after the Sheriff went mad from looking inside Joshua De Talmont's sacred Jewish book)
        Much: Sir, what did he see in the book that made him go mad?
        Joshua De Talmont: His own wickedness?
