ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

For an infidel, you have uncommon clarity of thinking. And you'll tell me nothing of yourself. For instance your name; Azeem, what doe sit mean?

AZEEM:

Great one

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

Great one? Really? Did you give yourself this name? It was a joke! Azeem the great one! I'm home! Look! Mistletoe. Many maids lost their resole to me thanks to this little plant.

AZEEM:

In my country we talk to our women, we do not drug them with plants

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

What do you know of women?

AZEEM:

Where I come from, Christian, there are women of such beauty. That they can poses a mans mind so, that they would be willing to die for her.

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

Wait. Was that why you were to be executed? Because of a woman?

That's it, isn't it? That's it!

AZEEM:

It is close to sunset

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

Who was she? The Mullah's daughter? Another man's wife? What's her name?

AZEEM:

Is there no sun in this cursed country? Which way is east?

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

Her name

AZEEM:

East?!

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

Her name

AZEEM:

Yasmina

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

That way!

Robin points Azeem to the East

AZEEM:

You are sure?

ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY

I would know blindfolded, I'm five miles from home. Was she worth it?

AZEEM:

Worth dying for
