Lancelot: Where the hell is your so-called magician, Arthur?
Arthur: He'll be here, Lancelot!
Lancelot: I suppose asking to borrow a cup of sugar is a step too far.
[Lee Unwin prevents a captive terrorist from killing his comrades with a suicide bomb by jumping over him before the explosion. Hart removes his mask]
Harry Hart: Shit. Fucking missed it. How did I fucking miss it? Merlin.
[Merlin removes his mask]
Harry Hart: I apologise for putting you in this position. You trained him well.
[James removes his mask]
Merlin: Your training... is over.
Harry Hart: Welcome to Kingsman, Lancelot.
Harry Hart: [Looking at Unwin's body] I'll deal with this mess... personally.
Lancelot: [over the radio] This is Zero One Alpha. We have secured Falcon. I say again, we have secured Falcon.
Harry Hart: [interrogating terrorist] By the time I count to ten, you will have told me exactly what I need to know. If not, the number ten will be the last thing you will ever hear.
Harry Hart: One. Two. Three.
[Hart shoots the terrorist in both legs; the terrorist slumps forwards]

[the terrorist sits back up, with a grenade pin in his teeth]
Interrogator: Grenade! Sir, get back!
[jumps on the terrorist, just before the grenade explodes]
Lancelot: You look frightened. There's a large number of lonely men out there.
Guinevere: Don't worry, I won't let them rape you.
[Lancelot finds Arthur praying in the stable]
Lancelot: Why do you always talk to God and not to me? Pray to whomever you pray that we don't cross the Saxons.
Arthur: My faith is what protects me, Lancelot. Why do you challenge this?
Lancelot: I don't like anything that puts a man on his knees.
Arthur: No man fears to kneel before the God he trusts. Without faith, without belief in something, what are we?
Bors: I like the little bastards. They mean something to me. Especially Number Three! He's a good fighter!
Lancelot: That's because he's mine.
[Lancelot's plans for the future]
Lancelot: Well, if this woman of Gawain's is as beautiful as he claims, I expect to be spending a lot of time at Gawain's house. His wife will welcome the company.
Gawain: I see. And what will I be doing?
Lancelot: Wondering at your good fortune that all your children look like me.
Gawain: Is that before or after I hit you with my axe?
Bors: Dagonet, she wants to get married and give the children names.
Tristan: Women! The children already have names, don't they?
Bors: Just Gilly. It's too much trouble so we gave the rest of them numbers.
Lancelot: That's interesting. I thought you couldn't count.
Gawain: I can't wait to leave this island. If it's not raining, it's snowing, and if it's not snowing, it's foggy.
Lancelot: And that's summer.
Lancelot: Hey Bors. You intend to take Vanora and all your little bastards back home?
Bors: Oh I'm trying to avoid that decision... by getting killed.
Lancelot: I will die in battle; that I am certain of. But I hope to die in a battle of my choosing. But if it is to be this one, do not bury me in our sad little cemetery. Burn me, and cast my ashes to a strong eastern wind.
Guinevere: This is heaven for me.
Lancelot: I don't believe in Heaven, I've been living in this Hell. But if you represent what Heaven is, then take me there.
[it starts raining and snowing]
Lancelot: Rain and snow at once... a bad omen.
Lancelot: [voiceover] And as for the knights who gave their lives, their deaths were cause for neither mourning nor sadness. For they will live forever, their names and deeds handed down from father to son, mother to daughter, in the legends of King Arthur and his knights.
Lancelot: Arthur! This is not Rome's fight. It is not your fight. All these long years we've been together, the trials we've faced, the blood we've shed... what was it all for if not for the reward of freedom! And now when we are so close, when it's finally within our grasp... Look at me! Does it all count for nothing?
Arthur: You ask me that? You who know me the best of all?
Lancelot: Then do not do this. Only certain death awaits you here. Arthur, I beg you! For our friendship's sake, I beg you!
Arthur: You be my friend now and do not dissuade me. Seize the freedom you have earned and live it for the both of us. I cannot follow you, Lancelot. I know now that all the blood I have shed, all the lives I have taken have led me to this moment.
[while Marius and his men are preparing to attack Dagonet, an arrow flies out of nowhere and kills Marius; his men look and see Guinevere aiming a bow at them]
Lancelot: Your hands seem to be better.
Lancelot: [voiceover] By 300 AD, the Roman Empire extended from Arabia to Britain. But they wanted more. More land. More peoples loyal and subservient to Rome. But no people so important as the powerful Sarmatians to the east. Thousands died on that field. And when the smoke cleared on the fourth day, the only Sarmatian soldiers left alive were members of the decimated but legendary cavalry. The Romans, impressed by their bravery and horsemanship, spared their lives. In exchange, these warriors were incorporated into the Roman military. Better they had died that day.
Young Lancelot: Father. They are here.
Lancelot: For the second part of the bargain they struck indebted not only themselves...
Lancelot's Father: The day has come.
Lancelot: ...but also their sons, and their sons, and so on, to serve the empire as knights. I was such a son.
Lancelot, Arthur, Bors, Gawain, Tristan, Dagonet: [the knights line up on the hill near the fort and charge towards the Saxons] For Arthur!
Arthur: Knights... Brothers and arms... Your courage has been testet beyond all limits.
Arthur: But I must ask you now for one further trial.
Arthur: We must leave on a final mission for Rome before our freedom can be granted. Above the wall, far north, there is a Roman family in need of rescue. They are trapped by Saxons. Our orders is to secure their safety.
Bors: Let the Romans take care of their own.
Gawain: Above the wall is Woad territory.
Galahad: Our duty to Rome, if it ever was a duty, is done. Our pact with Rome is done.
Bors: Every knight here has laid his life on the line for you. For you. And instead of freedom you want more blood? Our blood? You think more of Roman blood than you do of ours?
Arthur: Bors! These are our orders. We leave at first light, and when we return your freedom will be waiting for you. A freedom we can embrace with honour.
Bors: I'm a free man! I will choose my own fate!
Tristan: Yeah, yeah, we're all going to die someday. If it's a death from a Saxons hand that frightens you, stay home.
Galahad: Listen, if you're so eager to die, you can die right now! I've got something to live for!
Lancelot: Enough. Enough!
Dagonet: The Romans have broken their word. We have the word of Arthur. That is good enough. I'll prepare.
Lancelot: When are you going to leave Bors and come home with me?
Vanora: My lover is watching you.
[Bors is looking at his baby, then looks at Lancelot, who has a smirk on his face]
Bors: You look nothing like him!
Lancelot: For two hundred years knights had fought and died for a land not their own, but on that day on Badon Hill all who fought put their lifes in service of a greater cause: freedom.
Lancelot: To try and get past the Woads in the north is insanity.
Arthur: Them, we've fought before.
Lancelot: Not north of the Wall! How many Saxons? Hmm? How many? Tell me. Do you believe in this mission?
Arthur: These people need our help. It is out duty to bring...
Lancelot: I don't care about your charge. And I don't give a damn about Romans, Britain, or this island. If you desire to spend eternity in this place, Arthur, then so be it. But suicide cannot be chosen for another!
Arthur: And yet you choose death for this family!
Lancelot: No, I choose life! And freedom! For myself and the men!
Bors: Well, now that we're free men, I'm gonna drink 'tll I can't piss straight.
Gawain: You do that every night.
Bors: I never could piss straight. Too much of myself to handle down there...
[looks at the Knights]
Bors: Well, it's a problem! No really, it is. It's a problem. It's like...
Bors, Gawain, Lancelot, Tristan, Galahad, Dagonet: ...a baby's arm holding an apple.
Arthur: God uses people like you, Lancelot. Because your heart is open. You hold nothing back. You give all of yourself.
Lancelot: If you knew me better, you would not say such things.
Arthur: Oh, hey, I take the good with the bad, together. I can't love people in slices.
Lancelot: You must not care whether you live or die.
Lancelot: I dare not kiss so lovely a lady. I have but one heart to lose.
Arthur, Lancelot: Brother to brother, yours in life and death.
Lancelot: Do you know how to win a sword fight?
Lancelot: Be the only one with a sword!
Guinevere: If there is any honor in you, promise me never to do that again.
Lancelot: I don't know about honor. But I promise you, I won't kiss you again till you ask me to.
Lancelot: I've never believed in anything before. But I do believe in Camelot, and I would serve it best by leaving.
King Arthur: I trusted you, loved you, and you betrayed me!
Lancelot: I never meant to hurt you, my lord.
King Arthur: You leave me nothing! Nothing!
Lancelot: Aye, it is the valley of death... the Devil himself has plowed it under.
Arthur: Move aside! This is the king's road - and the knights you joined arms against were his very own.
Lancelot: I await the king himself. His knights are in need of training.
Arthur: I am King. And this
[draws the sword]
Arthur: , is Excalibur, sword of kings from the dawn of time. Who are you? What do you seek?
Lancelot: I am Lancelot of the Lake, from across the sea. And I have yet to find a king worthy of my sword.
Arthur: That is a wild boast. You lack a knight's humility!
Lancelot: Not a boast, sir. But a curse. For I have never met my match in joust or duel.
Arthur: Move aside!
Lancelot: I will not. You must retreat, or prove your worth in the test of arms under the eyes of God.
Arthur: Then may He give me the strength to unhorse you. And send you with one blow, back across the sea.
Lancelot: Then come across, sir.
[Arthur and Lancelot are fighting at their first encounter]
Lancelot: Your rage has unbalanced you. You, sir, would fight to the death, against a knight who is not your enemy. Over a stretch of road you could easily ride around.
Arthur: So be it. To the death!
Lancelot: [Lancelot unhorses Arthur, then approaches him still on horseback with his lance held out] Yield sir, I have the advantage.
Arthur: [in a fit of absolute rage] I will not! Fight me from your horse or on foot, but fight me, your avoidance mocks me!
Lancelot: I sought only not to harm you.
[knocks Arthur to the ground]
Arthur: Thanks be to God you're alive.
Lancelot: I, the best Knight in the world bested! This is a great day! For my search is over, my King. Make me your champion.
Arthur: But your life and lands are far from here.
Lancelot: I gave up my castle and my lands. This is my domain. Within this metal skin. And I pledge all that I still own. Muscle, bone, blood and the heart that pumps it.
Arthur: And a great heart it is. Sir Lancelot, you will be my champion.
Lancelot: [Fatally wounded] Arthur. Forgive.
Lancelot: My salvation is to die a Knight of the Round Table.
Arthur: You are that. And much more. You are it's greatest Knight. You are what is best in men.
Lancelot: It is the old wound my King. It has never healed. Guinevere. Is she Queen again?
Arthur: She is Lancelot.
Lancelot: King? More like mayor of Loserville.
Lancelot: I started to envy the slaves. They know everything in advance... They have solid convictions. Maybe, because they have no choice. As for a knight... A knight is always at the crossroads.
The Dragon: [Lancelot sees children running after a dragon-like kite. The kite is pulled by the reincarnated Dragon, and Dragon is facing him and poses a silent question] So... passer-by, now everything starts again?
The Dragon: [Silence, then the Dragon speaks aloud] Maybe, not now... There are children, after all.
Lancelot: [looking over the scene] No. Now.
The Dragon: [smiling to the children] Well then... Now it will start... The most interesting part.
[pause, then shouting playfully to the children]
The Dragon: GET READY!...
