Marian Quotes in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)


Marian 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]

    Marian: Richard!

    [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!

  • Robin Hood: You're King Richard's cousin. You can give word to him of Nottingham's plans. He would believe you.

    Marian: If the sheriff found out, I could lose all that I have.

    Robin Hood: But will you do it for your king?

    Marian: No. I'll do it for you.

    [She kisses him and gets on the boat. They look at each other intensely as the boat leaves]

    Duncan: He fancies you, my Lady. I may be blind, but there are some things I still see.

  • Marian: How is it, that a once-arrogant young nobleman has found contentment, living rough with the salt of the earth?

    Robin Hood: I've seen knights in armor panic at the first hint of battle. And I've seen the lowliest, unarmed squire pull a spear from his own body, to defend a dying horse. Nobility is not a birthright. It's defined by one's actions.

  • Marian: You came for me... You're alive...

    Robin Hood: I would die for you.

  • Marian: There is a price on your head.

    Robin Hood: How much?

    Marian: One hundred gold pieces.

    Robin Hood: Is that all? I shall have to annoy the good Sheriff more. Soon it will be a thousand.

    Marian: For a thousand, I would turn you in myself.

  • Marian: Robin, do something for me.

    Robin of Locksley: What?

    Marian: Take a bath.

  • Sheriff of Nottingham: Marian, our union would allow these children to grow up as my allies. You understand... I cannot allow them to grow up as my enemies.

    Marian: I have no choice.

    Sheriff of Nottingham: That's true.

  • Marian: Men speak conveniently of love when it serves their purpose.

  • Guy of Gisborne: Harboring felons, are you, milady?

    Marian: They're thieves, you imbecile. They're stealing my horses.

    Guy of Gisborne: Lucky they didn't steal your virtue as well.

  • Marian: It's interesting to hear you say that.

    Robin Hood: I didn't. My father did.

    Marian: Did the holy quest erase your hatred of him?

    Robin Hood: I don't know. All I know is that our last words in this world were spoken in anger. I was lost after my mother died. My father too, and for a short time he found comfort in the arms of another woman, a peasant woman. I thought he was betraying my mother's memory.

    Marian: So he gave her up?

    Robin Hood: For the love of a twelve-year-old boy who would never forgive him.

  • Robin Hood: Marian, I've returned to my home to find it destroyed, and my father murdered! And the only clues to why are in the ramblings of an old blind man.

    Marian: But all I remember of you is a spoiled bully who used to burn my hair as a child.

    Robin Hood: Please allow that years of war and imprisonment may change a man.

    Marian: Robin, whatever happened between you and your father, you mustn't believe... what they accused him of.

    Robin Hood: I don't.

  • Robin Hood: [after just swinging her to safety, he takes her hand] Marian, my love, will you marry me?

    Marian: Oh, darling, I thought you'd never ask me!

    [moves behind Robin Hood so he can continue to fight the Sheriff's men]

    Marian: [giggles] But you could have chosen a more romantic setting!

    Robin Hood: For our honeymoon: London! Normandy!

    Marian: Yes!

    Robin Hood: Sunny Spain?

    Marian: [laughs] Why not?

  • Clucky: Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

    Marian: Or forgetful.

  • Tagalong: Gee, you're beautiful.

    Sis: Are you going to marry Robin Hood?

    Tagalong: Mama says that you and Robin Hood are sweethearts.

    Marian: Well you see, that was several years ago before I left for London.

    Toby: Did he ever kiss you?

    Marian: Well no, but he carved our initials on this tree. I remember it so well.

    Skippy: Are you gonna have any kids? My mom's got a lot of kids.

    Marian: Oh, he's probably forgotten all about me.

    Skippy: Oh, not Robin Hood! I bet he'll storm the castle one day, fight the guards, rescue ya, and drag you off to Sherwood Forest!

    Clucky: Now, just a minute there, young man! You forgot all about Prince John!

    Skippy: That old Prince John don't scare me none!

    Toby: I'm scared of Prince John. He's cranky.

  • Marian: Oh, Clucky, surely he must know how much I really love him.

    Clucky: But of course, my dear. Believe me, someday soon, your Uncle King Richard will have an outlaw for an in-law!

  • Prince John: I sentence you to sudden, instant, and even immediate death!

    Marian: Oh, no. Please. Please, sire. I beg of you to spare his life. Please have mercy.

    Prince John: My dear, emotional lady, why should I?

    Marian: Because I love him, Your Highness.

    Prince John: Love him? And does this prisoner return your love?

    Robin Hood: Marian, my darling, I love you more than life itself.

    Prince John: [Sincerely] Young love, your pleads have not fallen upon a heart of stone.

    [Tone changes to fierce and determined]

    Prince John: But traitors to the crown must die!

    Robin Hood: [cutting him off] Traitor to the crown? That crown belongs to King Richard. Long live King Richard!

    Crowd: Long live King Richard!

    Prince John: [gives the crowd a dirty look]

    [Throwing a childish tantrum]

    Prince John: Enough! I am King! King! King! Off with his head!

  • Sis: I told Skippy he was shooting it too high.

    Marian: Well, I'm sure glad he did. Now I get to meet all of you.

  • Marian: Oh, Robin, you're so brave and impetuous!

  • Robin Hood: We'll have six children!

    Marian: [charmed] Six? Oh, a dozen at least!

    Marian: [Nutsy shoots an arrow at Robin, who dodges, and the ricochet just misses Nutsy. Marian, not content to let that go, smacks Nutsy in the face with a blackberry pie] Take that!

    [Marian and Robin laugh]

  • Marian: I'm thinking that sometimes you just have to make the decision to be happy. Just decide. Things aren't ever what you hoped they'd be. Not ever, for anybody. The only thing that separates one kind of person from another is there are some who stay angry about it and there are some who... accept what comes their way.

    Grant Anderson: Which kind of person are you?

    Marian: I was pretty mad about it. But now... looking at what came my way


    Marian: I think I could be the other kind of person. Quite the philosopher, huh?
