    I Betrayed Him

    Video: YouTube
    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.

    Video: YouTube
    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!
