Guard: Volunteers comin' in!
Faudron: (kneels) William Wallace, we've come to fight and to die for you.
William Wallace: Stand up, man, I'm not the Pope.
Faudron: (smiles and stands) My name is Faudron. My sword is yours. I brought you this.
(reaches for something, Hamish tries to stop him)
Guard: We checked 'em for arms.
Faudron: I brought you this.
(pulls out a sash)
Faudron: My wife made it for you.
William Wallace: Thank you.
Stephen: (starts laughing) Him? That can't be William Wallace. I'm *prettier* than this man!
(to the sky)
Stephen: Alright, Father, I'll ask him.
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.
(to the sky)
Stephen: Yes, Father!
Stephen: The Almight says, "Don't change the subject, just answer the fuckin' question."
Hamish: Mind your tongue.
Campbell: Insane Irish.
Stephen: (draws a dagger on Campbell; everyone draws weapons) Smart enough to get a dagger past your guards, old man.
William Wallace: That's my friend, Irishman. And the answer to your question is "yes". You fight for me, you get to kill the English.
Stephen: (grins) Excellent!
(removes his dagger)
Stephen: Stephen is my name. I the most wanted man on my island, except I'm not on my island, of course. More's the pity.
Hamish: "Your island"? You mean Ireland?
Stephen: Yeah. It's mine.
Hamish: You're a madman.
Stephen: (nods and starts laughing, then Hamish does as well) I've come to the right place, then.
