Whatever blood is in your veins, no man deserves to die in there.

Some guards pass their hiding place

Farewell, my friend, God'll speed your way

Our way lies together. With the speed of Allah. You have saved my life. Christian. Now I'll stay with you, until I've saved yours. That's my vow.

LORD LOCKSLEY:

Kind Sir, It's rumoured that you fought in King Richard's crusade with my beloved son, Robin. I fear you are returned home to desperate times. When dark forces plot against our absent king. I'm anxious for words of my son. Were you present at his capture near Jerusalem? Do you know the name of the potentate who holds him? Does he still bear me ill will? A little news, please sir. I would give all that I own for his release.

DUNCAN:

Not now!

SERVANT:

Help me, my Lord!

DUNCAN:

You should have waited. I'm sorry you were disturbed, master.
