King Richard Quotes in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)
King Richard Quotes:
Friar Tuck: By the power vested in me, of God's holy church, I say let any man who has reason why these two should not be joined, let him speak now or forever hold his peace.
Friar Tuck: Then, I now pronounce you...
King Richard: Hold, I speak!
[Everyone turns around to see knights coming]
[Everyone, except Marian and a confused Azeem, bows]
King Richard: I will not allow this wedding to proceed...
Robin Hood: [gets up] My lord...
King Richard: ...unless I'm allowed to give the bride away! You look radiant, cousin.
Marian: Oh, Richard.
[they exchange kisses on the cheeks]
Robin Hood: I'm deeply honored, your majesty.
King Richard: It is I who is honored, Lord Locksley. Thanks to you, I still have a throne. Friar, proceed!
Friar Tuck: Husband and wife. You may kiss the bride.
Robin Hood: I know that.
[They kiss, and everyone cheers. The camera shifts to the Friar, who breaks the fourth wall and looks at the camera]
Friar Tuck: Now, get out of it! We're wasting good celebration time!
King Richard: What about you Robin?
Robin Hood: My sword is yours, sire, now and always.
King Richard: Is there nothing England's king can grant the outlaw who showed him his duty to his country?
Robin Hood: Yes, your majesty: a pardon for the men of Sherwood.
King Richard: Granted with all my heart!
[the men cheer]
King Richard: But, uh, is there nothing for yourself?
Robin Hood: [looking at Marian] There's but one thing else, sire.
King Richard: [to Marian] And, uh, do you too wish...?
Lady Marian Fitzswalter: More than anything in the world, sire.
King Richard: Kneel, Robin Hood.
[Robin does so, and King Richard taps his shoulders with his sword]
King Richard: Arise Robin, Baron of Locksley, Earl of Sherwood and Nottingham, and lord of all the lands and manors appertaining thereto. My first command to you, my lord Earl, is to take in marriage the hand of the Lady Marian... What say you to that, Baron of Locksley?
Robin Hood: May I obey all your commands with equal pleasure, sire!
King Richard: Well, sir rascal, tell me, who are you?
Robin Hood: I'm called Robin Hood.
King Richard: It seems I've heard of you.
Robin Hood: Nothing good, I hope.
King Richard: Oh, now I remember. How does your loyalty to Richard set on a killer of knights, a poacher of the king's deer and an outlaw?
Robin Hood: Those I've killed died from misusing the trust that Richard left them. And the worst rogue of these is the king's own brother.
King Richard: Oh, then you blame Prince John.
Robin Hood: No, I blame Richard. His task was defending his people instead of deserting them to fight in foreign lands.
King Richard: What? You'd condemn the Holy Crusades?
Robin Hood: I'll condemn anything that leaves the task of holding England to outlaws like me.
Rabbi Tuckman: Excuse me, King. Why, if you like this guy so much, do you object to his marrying Maid Marian?
King Richard: I have no objection, but I have not yet kissed the bride. It is a custom, and my royal right.
[hands the rabbi his sword]
King Richard: Hold this, Father.
Rabbi Tuckman: Rabbi.
King Richard: Whatever.
[tilts Maid Marian and gives her a very long kiss]
Rabbi Tuckman: [impressed] It's good to be the king.
King Richard: Now...
King Richard: *you* may marry them!
Rabbi Tuckman: Thank you. Here's your knife.
King Richard: Sword.
Rabbi Tuckman: Whatever.
King Richard: [taking Prince John's crown] You are no longer worthy to wear this sacred symbol of authority.
Prince John: Oh please have mercy on me, brother. It wasn't my fault. I got some really bad advice from Rottingham.
Crowd: [coughs] Bullshit! Bullshit!
King Richard: Brother, you have surrounded your given name with a foul stench!
[to the crowd]
King Richard: From this day forth, all the toilets in the kingdom shall be known as... johns!
Prince John: NOOOOOOOOOOO!
King Richard: Take him away! Put him in the Tower of London! Make him part of the tour.
Rabbi Tuckman: [performing the marriage] Robin, do you?
Robin Hood: I do.
Rabbi Tuckman: Marian, do you?
Maid Marian: I do.
Rabbi Tuckman: I now pronounce you man and...
King Richard: I object!
Rabbi Tuckman: Who asked?
King Richard: Oh, Friar Tuck. It appears that I now have an outlaw for an in-law.
