    Ranker Video v

    William Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

    Our Difference

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

    I Betrayed Him

    Ranker Video v

    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 their children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk, they fought for William Wallace, and 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 heart.
    Robert the Bruce: I don't wanna lose heart. I wanna believe as he does.

    One Day You'll Be a Queen

    Princess Isabelle: I understand you have suffered. I know... about your woman.
    William Wallace: She was my wife. We married in secret because I would not share her with an English lord. They killed her to get to me. I've never spoken of it, I don't know why I tell you now, except... I see her strength in you. One day, you'll be a queen. And you must open your eyes. You tell your king that William Wallace will *not* be ruled... and nor will any Scot while I live.

    Join Me and Win

    Robert the Bruce: Now, you've achieved more than anyone ever dreamed. But, fighting these odds, it looks like rage, not courage.

Noble, and common, they respect you. And if you would just lead them to freedom, they'd follow you. And so would I
