Narrator: I will tell you of William Wallace. Historians will call me a liar, but history is written by those who've hanged heroes.

Hamish: What in the hell are the Irish doing fighting with the English?
Stephen: I wouldn't worry about them. Like I said, it's my island.
William Wallace: Your island?
Stephen: MY ISLAND! Yup!

Stephen: Just when we thought all hope was lost, our noble saviors have arrived.

Hamish: Where are you going?
William Wallace: I'm going to pick a fight.
Hamish: Well, we didn't get dressed up for nothing.

Princess Isabelle: I've come to beg for the life of William Wallace.
Prince Edward: [scoffs] You're quite taken with him, aren't you?

Robert the Bruce: Now, I know you've sacrificed much. But fighting these odds looks like rage, not courage.
William Wallace: It's well beyond rage. Help me. For Christ's sake, help yourselves! If we join, we can win. If we win, well then we'll have what none of us has ever had before: a country of our own.

Robert's Father: Longshanks acquired Wallace. So did our nobles. That was the price of your crown.
Robert the Bruce: DIE!!! I want you to die!

Longshanks: Bring me Wallace. Alive if possible, dead...just as good.

Robert's Father: I'm the one that's rotting, but your face looks graver than mine.

Lord Bottoms: As lord of these lands I shall bless this marriage by taking the bride into my bed on the first night of her union.
Morrison: By God, you will not!

William Wallace: We all end up dead, the question is how and why.

Stephen: I'm the most wanted man on my island! But I'm not on my island.
Hamish: You're island? You mean Ireland.
Stephen: Yeah. It's MINE.

William Wallace: You dropped your rock.

Argyle Wallis: We'll stay here tonight, leave in the mornin'.
Young William: But I don't want to leave.
Argyle Wallis: You did not want your father to die either, but it happened.

Argyle Wallis: Did the priest give a poetic benediction? "The Lord bless thee and keep thee..."
Young William: It was in Latin.
Argyle Wallis: You don't speak Latin? Eh, then that is something we shall have to remedy.

Longshanks: Archers.
English Commander: Beg your pardon sire, but won't we hit our own troops ?
Longshanks: Yes, but we'll hit there's as well. We have reserves...attack !

Executioner: The prisoner wishes to say a word.
William Wallace: FREEEEE-DOMMMMMM!

William Wallace: The answer is yes. Fight for me, you get to kill the English.
Stephen: Excellent!

William Wallace: Sons of Scotland, I am William Wallace.
Young soldier: William Wallace is 7 feet tall.
William Wallace: Yes, I've heard. He kills men by the hundreds, and if he were here he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse. I am William Wallace, and I see a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?

William Wallace: Go back to England and tell them there that Scotland's daughters and sons are yours no more. Tell them Scotland is free.

[To Longshanks]
Princess Isabelle: You see? Death comes to us all. But before it comes to you, know this: your blood dies with you. A child who is not of your line grows in my belly. Your son will not sit long on the throne. I swear it.

Stephen: [To William Wallace] The Almighty tells me he can get me out of this mess, but he's pretty sure you're fucked.

[Lord Bottoms has previously taken Morrison's wife as his own.]
Morrison: Do you remember me?
Lord Bottoms: I never did her any harm. It was my right.
Morrison: Your right? Well, I'm here to claim the right of a husband.
[Kills Lord Bottoms]

Campbell: I'm dying. Let me be.
Hamish: No. You're going to live.
Campbell: I've lived long enough to live free. And proud to see you become the man that you are. I'm a happy man.

Nicolette: Englishmen don't know what a tongue is for.

William Wallace: And if this is my army, why does it go?
Soldier: We didn't come here to die for them!
Second Soldier: Home, the English are too many.
William Wallace: I see a whole army of my country men, here, in defiance of tyranny. What will you do without freedom? Will you fight?
Soldier: Against that? No, we will run, and we will live.
William Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die, run, and you'll least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade all of that from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take away our lives, but they'll never take our freeeedoooomm!

[After killing a would-be assassin.]
Stephen: I didn't like him anyway. He wasn't right in the head.

Campbell: [after his wound is cauterized] That'll wake you up in the mornin'.

Hamish: Some men are longer than others.
Campbell: Your mother's been telling stories about me again, ah?

English Commander: I hope you washed your ass this morning, it's about to be kissed by a king.

William Wallace: ...chaque jour j'ai pensÚ Ó toi.

Malcolm Wallace: It's our wits that make us men.

Longshanks: Who is this person that speaks to me as though I needed his advice?

William Wallace: Before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field, present himself before this army, put his head between his legs, and kiss his own arse.

William Wallace: In the year of our lord thirteen fourteen, patriots of Scotland, starving and outnumbered, charged the fields of Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets. They fought like Scotsmen. And won their freedom.

William Wallace: I love you. Always have. I want to marry you.

Stephen: [Speaking heavenward.] Him? That can't be William Wallace. I'm prettier than this man. Alright Father, I'll ask him.
[To William.]
Stephen: If I risk my neck for you, will I get a chance to kill Englishmen?
Hamish: Is your father a ghost, or do you converse with the Almighty?
Stephen: In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God.
[Looking heavenward.]
Stephen: Yes, Father.
[To William and his men.]
Stephen: The Almighty says don't change the subject; just answer the fucking question.

William Wallace: The answer is yes. Fight for me, you get to kill the English.
Stephen: Excellent!

Longshanks: Whom do I send? Not my gentle son. The mere sight of him would only encourage an enemy to take over the whole country.

Stephen: The Almighty says this must be a fashionable fight. It's drawn the finest people.

William Wallace: Lower your flags and march straight back to England, stopping at every home to beg forgiveness for a hundred years of theft, rape, and murder. Do this and your men shall live. Do it not, and every one of you will die today.

Robert the Bruce: You have bled with Wallace, now bleed with me.

Princess Isabelle: The king will be dead in a month and his son is a weakling. Who do you think is going to rule this kingdom?

William Wallace: I came home to raise crops, and God willing, a family. If I can live in peace, I will.

William Wallace: It's fine Scottish weather we're having. The rain is falling straight down and kind of to the side like.

William Wallace: Why do you help me?
Princess Isabelle: Because of the way you are looking at me now.

Argyle Wallis: They are saying goodbye in their own way. Playing outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes.

Robert's Father: At last, you know what it means to hate. Now you're ready to be a king.
Robert the Bruce: My hate will die with you.

Princess Isabelle: The king desires peace.
William Wallace: Longshanks desires peace?
Princess Isabelle: He declares it to me, I swear it. He proposes that you withdraw your attack. In return he grants you title, estates, and this chest of gold which I am to pay to you personally.
William Wallace: A lordship and titles. Gold. That I should become Judas?
Princess Isabelle: Peace is made in such ways.
William Wallace: Slaves are made in such ways. The last time Longshanks spoke of peace I was a boy. And many Scottish nobles, who would not be slaves, were lured by him under a flag of truce to a barn, where he had them hanged. I was very young, but I remember Longshank's notion of peace.

Robert the Bruce: Lands, titles, men, power... nothing.
Robert's Father: Nothing?
Robert the Bruce: I have nothing. Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk fought for William Wallace. He fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him. I saw it in his face on the battlefield and it's tearing me apart.
Robert's Father: All men betray! All lose.
Robert the Bruce: I don't want to lose heart! I want to believe as he does!

Longshanks: Not the archers. My scouts tell me their archers are miles away and no threat to us. Arrows cost money. Use up the Irish. Their dead cost nothing.

WIlliam Wallace: "There's a difference between us. You think the people of this land exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. and I go to make sure they have it."

William Wallace: "It's all for nothing if you don't have freedom."

Wallace's Father: "Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow it."

King Longshank: "The trouble with Scotland is that it's full of Scots."

William Wallace: "Every man dies, not every man really lives."

William Wallace: "They may take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!"
