  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Robin: No man belongs to another.
      Knight: I can buy four Saracens in the slave markets of Nabon with my horse. You're talking gibberish, my friend.
      Robin: Well, here's a Saracen for you!
      (Nasir walks up to them leading the knight's horse)
      Robin: Try buying him for a 1,000 horses!

    • (Addressing the outlaws after revealing his identity)
      King Richard: In Normandy, in Aquitaine, and even in Germany I have heard the stories. Of you and the Sheriff using this forest, my forest, as your battleground. Oh yes, I have heard all about you: your ambushes, your robberies, your tricks. I have heard enough to hang each one of you a dozen times over.
      (he pauses and then laughs)
      God's legs, you're a wild lad, Robin! And you saved the life of your King and that wipes the slate clean.

    • Robin: Lord King, we thank you for your mercy. It is true that we hunt the deer, but we can't live on grass. Those people we robbed have money by the sackful, the poor have nothing - not even their freedom.

    • Little John: I loved you, Robin. You were the hooded man, Herne's son. The peoples' hope! Now, now you're the King's fool.

    • King Richard: (to Gisbourne) Untie them, boy!
      Robin: (as Gisbourne unties him) Thank you. Boy.
