You are strange, Christian. --Azeem (Morgan Freeman)

Azeem: (referring to his family) Because I love them so much, I cannot dishonor them.
Robin (Kevin Costner): I thought you'd say that.

No man controls my destiny. Especially not one who attacks downwind and stinks of garlic. --Azeem

Robin: You know, for an infidel, you have an uncommon clarity of thinking, but you tell me nothing of yourself. For instance, your name, Azeem, what does it mean?
Azeem: It means "great one".
Robin: "Great One"...Really? Did you give yourself this name? [Azeem glares at him.] It was a joke! [laughs]

Robin: Mistletoe...many a maid lost her resolve to me, thanks to this little plant.
Azeem: In my country, we talk to our women. We do not drug them with plants.

I redeem my vows when I choose. You whine like a mule. [slaps Robin on the arm] You are still alive. --Azeem

Interesting place, this...England. --Azeem

(boy runs off) You scared him! --Robin to Azeem

The hospitality in this country is as warm as the weather. --Azeem

How did your uneducated kind ever take Jerusalem? --Azeem (after seeing Robin draw his sword to fight soldiers he sees in a telescope)

Duncan: Sherwood Forest is haunted, Master!
Robin: Either we take our chances with the ghosts or become ghosts ourselves!

Azeem: (after seeing the river) In my dreams alone I have imagined such a place.
Robin: Then imagine a way to cross it.

There was a rich man from Nottingham
Who tried to cross a river.
What a dope! He tripped on a rope!
Now look at him shiver! --(singing) Will Scarlett (Christian Slater)

Azeem: How can I protect you, Christian, when I do not know where you are?!
Robin: You hardly raise a finger when you do know!
Azeem: I prefer to have a choice.

Locksley! I'll cut your heart out with a spoon! --Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman)

Guy of Gisbourne: Why a spoon, cousin?
Sheriff of Nottingham: Because it's dull, you twit! It'll hurt more!

Peasant Man: What about our wives and kids? Sheriff's taken all they got too!
Robin: Then by God we take it back!

Men speak conveniently of love when it serves their purpose. And when it doesn't, 'tis a burden to them. --Maid Marian

Robin: What are you going to do?
Azeem: I have seen it done many times...with horses.
Robin: With horses?

Friar: Come, my barbarian friend. Let us open a barrel together and do our best to save each others' souls.
Azeem: Alas, I am not permitted.
Friar: Fine. you talk, I'll drink.

(points to a girl) You, my room...10:30. You, 10:45. Bring a friend. --Sheriff of Nottingham

(after killing Gisbourne) Well, at least I didn't use a spoon. That's good steel. --Sheriff of Nottingham

This is grain. Which any fool can eat but for which the Lord intended a more diviner means of consumption. Let us give praise to our maker and glory to his bounty by learning --Friar Tuck

Will: No, I'll do that. You cover us with your bow.
Robin: It's too dangerous.
Will: So's your aim.

Sheriff: (picking up Robin's cross from Marian's neck) That's a little inappropriate, don't you think?
Maid Marian (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio): No more than your wedding present.

Baron: Is this your idea of control?
Sheriff: Shut up, you twit!

If you would be free men, then you must fight! Join us! Join Robin Hood! --Azeem

Damned English oak! --Azeem

Marian: You came for me!
Robin: I would die for you!

King Richard (Sean Connery): I will not allow this wedding to proceed...
Robin: My lord!
King Richard: ...unless I am allowed to give the bride away. (to Marian) You look radiant, cousin.

Friar: You may kiss the bride.
Robin: I know that!

(during the long wedding kiss) Get out of it. We waste good celebration time! --Friar
