What really happened… Taglines

Robin Hood[edit]

  • Rob? [clicks tongue] That's a naughty word; we never rob! We just simply borrow a bit from those who can afford it.
  • [As Gypsy woman] From the mists of time, come forth spirits. Yoo-hoo!
  • Marry her? You don't just walk up to a girl, hand her a bouquet and say, "Hey, remember me? We were kids together. Will you marry me?"
  • Faint hearts never won fair ladies.
  • This will be my greatest performance.
  • This disguise would fool my own mother!
  • Marian, my darling, I love you more than life itself.
  • [As Nutsy] Jeosephat, Trigger, put that peashooter down!
  • Traitors to the crown!? That crown belongs to King Richard!
  • Anjoe you BEAST

Little John[edit]

  • Ah, come on, Robby. Climb the castle walls. Sweep her off her feet. Carry her off in style.
  • Cool it, lover boy. Your heart's runnin' away with your head.
  • [As Sir Reginald] Don't stick your tongue out at me, kid.
  • [As Sir Reginald] You heard His Mightiness. Move it, Creepy. Get lost! Be gone, Long One.
  • Hey! Who's drivin' this flyin' umbrella?
  • [Singing] While bonny good / King Richard leads / The great crusade he's on, / We'll all have to / swag Slave away for that / Good-for-nothing John.
  • [Singing] Too late to be known / As John the first, / He's sure to be known / As John the worst! / A pox on the phony king of England!
  • [Singing] But while there is / A merry man / In Robin's wily pack / We'll find a way / To make him pay / And steal our money back! / A minute before he knows we're there, / Ol Rob'll snatch his underwear.
  • [to Prince John] Ok, big shot, tell them to untie my buddy or I'll--
  • This ain't no hayride! Let's Move on outta here! HEEEYOOOOOO!!!

Prince John[edit]

  • And now I name you the winner. Or more appropriately... [cuts off Robin Hood's disguise] the loser! Seize him.
  • I sentence you to sudden, instant, and even immediate death.
  • Don't hurt me! No, no, don't hurt me!
  • Well, they'll be singing a different tune. Double the taxes! Triple the taxes! Squeeze every last drop out of those insolent, musical peasants.

Maid Marian[edit]

  • Oh, Klucky, you look so silly.
  • Well, don't be afraid. You've done nothing wrong.
  • [To a disguised Robin] Well, thank you, my thin-legged archer. I wish you luck, with all my heart.
  • [to Prince John, after he suspects she favors the gangly youth] Why, yes, sire. At least he amuses me.
  • [singing, voice-over] Love... / It seems like only yesterday. / You were just a child at play. / Now you're all grown up inside of me. / Oh, how fast those moments flee. / Once we watched a lazy world go by. / Now the days seem to fly. / Life is brief... / But when it's gone... / Love goes on and on. / Ooh... / Love will live. / Love will last. / Love goes on and on. / Once we watched a lazy world go by. / Now the days seem to fly. / Life is brief... / But when it's gone... / Love goes on and on.
  • [last lines, without the alternate ending] Oh, Robin, what a beautiful night. I wish it would never end.
  • [to Prince John, during the alternate ending] You're not the king!


  • You know, there's been a heap of legends and tall tales about Robin Hood. All different too. Well, we folks of the animal kingdom have our own version. It's the story of what really happened in Sherwood Forest.
  • Oh, incidentally, I'm Alan-A-Dale, a minstrel. That's an early day folk singer. My job is to tell it like it is, or was, or whatever.
  • [Singing] Robin Hood and Little John / Walkin' through the forest / Laughin' back 'n' forth / At what the other'un has to say / Reminiscin' this 'n' that / And havin' such a good time / Ooh-de-lally, Ooh-de-lally, / Golly what a day.
  • Well, even though Prince John offered a huge reward for the capture of Robin Hood, that elusive rouge kept right on robbin' the rich to feed the poor. And believe me, it's a good thing he did, 'cause what with taxes and all, the poor folks of Nottingham were starvin' to death. [pause, as we are seeing the Sheriff of Nottingham arrive] Uh-oh. Here comes ol' bad news himself -- the honorable Sheriff of Nottingham.
  • [Singing] Every town / Has its ups and downs / Sometimes ups / Outnumber the downs / But not in Nottingham.
  • [Singing] I'm inclined to believe/ If we weren't so down/ We'd up and leave/ We'd up and fly/ If we had wings for flying.
  • [Laughs] Well, folks. That's the way it really happened.
  • Man oh man. That Prince John sure made good his threat. And his subjects paid dearly for his humiliation. Taxes, taxes, taxes. Why, he taxed the heart and soul out of the poor people of Nottingham. And if you couldn't pay your taxes, you went to jail. Yep. I'm in here too. Nottingham was in deep trouble.

Sir Hiss[edit]

  • [After he and Prince John are left in the mud] I knew it. I knew it. I just knew this would happen. I tried to warn you, but no, no, no. You never listen, and now...
  • Ah-ah-ah! Seven years bad... [Prince John smashes a hand mirror over Hiss] luck. That's what it is. Besides, you just broke your mother's mirror.
  • [After being stuffed into a barrel full of ale] Please! Please! I don't drink!
  • I tried to tell you, but no, no, no, you wouldn't listen. Your traps just never work. And now look what you've done to your mother's castle.
  • Help! He's gone stark raving MAAAD!

Lady Kluck[edit]

  • As your lady in waiting, I'm waiting.
  • [Seeing the other children outside the gate] Oh, Marian, don't look around, but I do believe we're surrounded. Oh mercy!
  • [As Prince John] Oh! Ouch! That's not fair! Oh, Mommy!
  • Yee-hee! Love conquers all!
  • [To Marian] Run for it, Lassie! This is no place for a lady! [She jumps into the fight; the Sheriff grabs her arm from behind, but she judo flips him] Take that, you scoundrel!
  • Come on Johnny! Go, Laddie, go!
  • [Crying at Maid Marian and Robin Hood's wedding] Oh, I've never been so happy.

Sheriff of Nottingham[edit]

  • [After stealing the coins hidden in Otto's leg-cast] Oh, what they won't think of next.
  • [Singing to himself] They call me a slob, but I do my job...
  • [After stealing from a blind beggar] Well, so far it's been a cheerful morning!
  • [To Friar Tuck] You're under arrest for high treason to the crown!
  • Nutsy, how can I get any sleep with you yellin "all's well" all the time?
  • For the last time, Trigger, no more false alarms!
  • [Before attacking Hood with a burning torch] This time, we got him for sure!


  • [On his seventh birthday] Gosh, I'm seven years old! Going on eight!
  • Death to tyrants!
  • A kiss? Oh, that's sissy stuff!
  • [After being freed from jail] I'm ready. Where's the bad guys?


  • Yes, mind your mattles.
  • Goodbye Mis'er Robin Hood! Come again, on my bir'day!
  • My mama gots a lotta kids.

Friar Tuck[edit]

  • [Tastes the stew Robin burnt and coughs] Well done, ain't it?
  • You thieving scoundrel!
  • Collecting taxes for that arrogant, greedy, ruthless, no-good Prince John!?
  • You want taxes? I'll give you taxes!
  • Praise the Lord, and pass the tax rebate!


  • Sis: [About Robin] Oh, he's so handsome... just like his reward posters.
  • Mother Rabbit: Oh, Robin Hood, you've risked so much to keep our hopes alive. [with tears] Bless you. Bless you.
  • Toby: I'm scared of Prince John. He's cranky.
  • Sexton: Give it to him, give it to him! Give it to him, Friar!
  • Trigger: Wait a minute! Jail break! Jail break! I heard it -- I heard it, Sheriff! The door, the door!
  • King Richard: Oh, Friar Tuck. It appears that I now have an outlaw for an in-law.


Little John: You know somethin', Robin? You're takin' too many chances.
Robin Hood: Chances? You must be joking! That was just a bit of a lark, Little John.
Little John: Oh, yeah? Take a look at your hat. That's not a candle on a cake.
Robin Hood: [Sees the arrow in his hat] Hello! This one almost had my name on it, didn't it? They're getting better, you know. You've got to admit it: they are getting better.
Little John: Yeah, the next time that Sheriff will probably have a rope around our necks! [imitates choking] Pretty hard to laugh hangin' there, Rob.
Robin Hood: Ha! The Sheriff and his whole posse couldn't lift you off the ground. En garde! [throws an arrow at Little john, pinning his hat to the tree]
Little John: Hey, watch it, Rob! That's the only hat I've got.
Robin Hood: Oh, come along. You worry too much, old boy.
Little John: You know somethin', Robin. I was just wonderin' - are we good guys or bad guys? You know, I mean, uh...our robbin' the rich to feed the poor.
Robin Hood: Rob? [clicks tongue] That's a naughty word. We never rob. We just sort of borrow a bit from those who can afford it.
Little John: Borrow? Boy, are we in debt!
[Trumpets sound, Robin and John climb up to see what it is]
Robin Hood: That sounds like another collection day for the poor, eh, Johnny Boy?
Little John: Yeah. Sweet charity.

Prince John: Taxes! Ha-ha-ha! Taxes! Beautiful, lovely taxes! Ah-hah! Ah-hah!
Sir Hiss: S-Sire, you have an absolute skill for encouraging contributions from the poor.
Prince John: To coin a phrase, my dear counselor, "rob the poor to feed the rich!" Am I right? [Chuckles] Tell me. What is the next stop, Sir Hiss?
Sir Hiss: Um... let me see... Ooh, yes. The next stop is Nottingham, Sire.
Prince John: Oh, the richest plum of them all! Notting-ham.

Prince John: This crown gives me a feeling of power! Power! Forgive me a cruel chuckles. [Chuckles] Power.
Sir Hiss: How well King Richard's crown sit on your noble brow.
Prince John: Doesn't it? Ah! King Richard? [wrings Hiss' neck] I told you never to mention my brother's name!
Sir Hiss: A mere slip of the forked tongue, Your Majesty! After all, it was I who hypnotised him.
Prince John: I know, and sent him off on that crazy crusade! [Laughs]
Sir Hiss: Much to the sorrow of the Queen mother.
Prince John: [Starts to break up] Yes! Mother! Mother always did like Richard best. [Starts sucking his thumb]
Sir Hiss: Your Highness, please don't do that. If you don't mind my saying, you see, you have a very loud thumb. [Starts to hypnotize him] Hypnotism can cure you of your psssychosssis... ssso eeeeeasssy...
Prince John: [Coming to his senses] NO! None of that! None of that.
Sir Hiss: Well, I was only trying to help.
Prince John: [Snorts] I wonder. Silly serpent.
Sir Hiss: [Indignified] "Silly serpent"?
Prince John: Now look here. One more hiss out of you... uhm... Hiss, and you are walking to Nottingham!
Sir Hiss: [To himself] Snakes don't walk, they slither. Hmph. So there.

[Robin Hood and Little John are dressed as Gypsy women]
Little John: Now what about that for luck? It's only a circus, a peanut operation.
Robin Hood: Peanuts? Oh, why you dunce?! That's the Royal Coach. It's Prince John himself.
Little John: The prince? Wait a minute, there's a law against robbin' royalty. I'll catch you later.
Robin Hood: And miss this chance to perform before royalty?
Little John: [Sighs] Here we go again.
[They approach the coach]
Robin Hood: Ooh-de-lally! Ooh-de-lally! Fortune tellers!
Little John: Fortunes forecast! Lucky charms!
Robin Hood: Catch the dope with your horoscope!
Prince John: Fortune tellers? How droll! Um, stop the coach.
Sir Hiss: Sire! Sire! They may be bandits.
Prince John: Oh, poppycock! Female bandits? What next? Rubbish.

Prince John: Robbed! I've been robbed! Hiss! You're never around when I need you! I've been robbed.
Sir Hiss: Of course you've been robbed!
[Robin Hood and Little John race away with Prince John's gold]
Robin Hood: Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally!
Little John: Fortunes forecast. Lucky charms.
Prince John: [To his soldiers] AFTER THEM, YOU FOOLS!
[The soldiers start to give chase, but at that very moment, the wheels come off Prince John's coach (due to Little John stealing the solid gold hubcaps). He and Hiss fall out and are trampled in the mud.]
Prince John: [Sobbing childishly] No, no, no, no!
Sir Hiss: I knew it. I knew it. I just knew this would happen. I tried to warn you, but, no, no, no, you wouldn't listen, you just had to--
[Prince John raises a mirror in anger]
Sir Hiss: Ah, ah, ah!! Seven years bad... [the mirror crashes down over his head] luck. That's what that is. Besides... you've broke your mother's mirror.
Prince John: [Wailing] Mommy! [begins sucking his thumb, only to realize there's mud on it] I've got a dirty thumb.[stares at the camera as the screen fades to black].

Sheriff of Nottingham: Well, greetings from your friendly neighbourhood tax collector.
Otto: Take it easy on me, Sheriff. What with this busted leg and all, I'm way behind in me work, Sheriff.
Sheriff of Nottingham: I know, Otto, but you're way behind with your taxes too.
Friar Tuck: Have a heart, Sheriff. Can't you see he's laid up? Come on, Otto. You'd better sit down and rest.
Otto: Oh, thank you.
[As Otto walks over to the chair, the Sheriff notices that his cast chinks whenever he walks.]
Sheriff of Nottingham: Let me give you a hand with that leg. Upsy-daisy! [The Sheriff lifts up Otto's leg cast, spilling the hidden coins into his hand.] Bingo! Ah, what they won't think of next.
[The Sheriff of Nottingham bumps Otto's leg cast, spilling out one last coin while Otto yelps in pain. Friar Tuck fumes in the background.]
Sheriff of Nottingham: It smarts, don't it, Otto? But Prince John says that taxes should hurt!
Friar Tuck: [raging] Now see here, you... you evil, flint-hearted, no-good, leeching--
Sheriff of Nottingham: Now, now, now, now! Save your sermon, preacher. It ain't Sunday, you know.

[After accidentally shooting an arrow into Prince John's backyard, Skippy goes to retrieve it]
Tagalong: Skippy, you can't go in there.
Toby: Yeah, Prince John'll chop off your head. [draws his head into his shell] Like this!
Skippy: Oh, I don't care. I gotta get my arrow.
Sis: Wait a minute. Toby might tattle on you.
Skippy: Yeah, Toby. You gotta take the oath.
Toby: The oath?
Tagalong: Put you hand on you heart and cross you eyes.
Skippy: Spiders, snakes, and a lizard's head.
Toby: [Repeats] Spiders, snakes, and a lizard's head.
Skippy: If I tattletale, I'll die till I'm dead.
Toby: [Repeats] If I tattletale, I'll die till I'm dead.

[After "killing" Lady Kluck in their game]
Skippy: [Whispering] Did I hurt you, huh?
Lady Kluck: [Whispering] No. This is the part where you drag your lady fair off to Sherwood Forest.
Skippy: [To Marian] Come on Lady Fair! Let's go!
Maid Marian: Oh, Robin! You're so brave and impetuous. Oh, so, this is Sherwood Forest?
Skippy: Yeah, I guess so. Well, now what are we gonna do?
Maid Marian: Well, usually, the hero gives his fair lady a kiss.
Skippy: A kiss? Aw, that's sissy stuff.
Maid Marian: Well, if you won't... then I will! [laughs as she hugs Skippy and kisses him on the cheek]

Lady Klucky: Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Maid Marian: Or forgetful.

Robin Hood: I guess I was thinking about Maid Marian again. I can't help it. I love her, Johnny.
Little John: Robin, why don't you stop moanin' and mopin' around? Just marry the girl!
Robin Hood: Marry her?! You don't just walk up to a girl, hand her a bouquet and say, "Hey, remember me? We were kids together. Will you marry me?" It just isn't done that way.
Little John: Aw, come on, Robbie. Climb the castle walls! Sweep her off her feet! Carry her off in style!
Robin Hood: It's no use, Johnny. I've thought it all out, and... it just wouldn't work. Besides, what have I got to offer her?
Little John: [Smiles jokingly] Well, for one thing, you can't cook.
Robin Hood: I'm serious, Johnny. She's a highborn lady of quality.
Little John: So she's got class. So what?
Robin Hood: I'm an outlaw, that's what! That's no life for a lovely lady. Always on the run. What kind of a future is that?
Friar Tuck: Oh, for heaven's sake, son. You're no outlaw! Why, someday, you'll be called a great hero.
Robin Hood: A hero? Do you hear that, Johnny? We've just been pardoned!
Little John: Oh, that's a gas. We ain't even been arrested yet.

Little John: Archery tournament? Old Rob could win that standin' on his head, huh, Rob?
Robin Hood: Thank you, Little John, but I'm sure we're not invited.
Friar Tuck: No, but there's somebody who will be very disappointed if you don’t come.
Little John: Yeah, ol' Bushel Britches, the Honorable Sheriff of Nottingham.
Friar Tuck: No, Maid Marian.
Robin Hood: Maid Marian?
Friar Tuck: Yeah. She's gonna give a kiss to the winner!
Robin Hood: A kiss to the winner? Ooh-de-lally! Come on, Johnny, what are we waiting for?

Prince John: Hiss, this is a red-letter day! A coup d'état, to coin a Norman phrase.
Sir Hiss: Oh, yes indeed, Sire! [Stretching above him proudly] Your plan to capture Robin Hood in public is sheer genius!
Prince John: Hiss, no one sits higher than the king. [Pulls him back down] Must I remind you, Hiss?
Sir Hiss: Oh, forgive me, Sire. I-I didn't mean to--
Prince John: My trap is baited and set! And then, revenge! Ah-hah, REVENGE!
Sir Hiss: Shhh! Not so loud, Sire. Remember: only you and I know, [Hissing in his ear] and your sssssecret is my sssssecret.
Prince John: [Laughs] Stop hissing in my ear! ... Secret? What secret?
Sir Hiss: Why, the capture of Robin Hood, Sire!
Prince John: That insolent blackguard! Oooh! I'll show him who wears the crown! [Thumps his fist on his armrest, knocking his crown out of place]
Sir Hiss: I share your loathing, Sire. That scurrilous scoundrel who fooled you with that silly disguise, who dared to rob you and made you look so utterly ridiculous--!
Prince John: ENOUGH! [Swings at Hiss, who dodges him] Hiss, you deliberately dodged!
Sir Hiss: But, but, but... Sire, please.
Prince John: Stop sniveling and hold still.
[Hiss holds still while Prince John hits him on the head.]
Sir Hiss: [Dazed] Thank you, Sire.

Little John: [As Sir Reginald] Ah, milord, my esteemed royal sovereign of the realm. The head man himself. You're beautiful.
Prince John: [Chuckles] He has style, eh, Hiss? "Du savoir-faire il y a n'est-ce pas, 'Iss?"
Little John: You took the words right out of my mouth, P.J.
Prince John: P.J.! I like that! Do you know I do? Hiss, put it on my luggage! P.J.! [laughs]

Robin Hood: [As the spindle-legged stork] I'm gonna win that Golden Arrow, and then I'm goin' to present meself to Maid Marian--
Sheriff of Nottingham: Listen, Scissor-bill. If you shoot half as well as you blabbermouth, you're better than Robin Hood.
Robin Hood: [As the spindle-legged stork] Robin Hood, he says? Wowee! I'm tip-top, alright, but I'm not as good as he is. [Shoots a perfect bullseye]


Robin Hood: [As the spindle-legged stork] Oh, um, by the way... I heard you're havin' a bit of trouble gettin' your hands on that Robin Hood.
Sheriff of Nottingham: He's scared of me, that's what he is! You notice he didn't show up here today. [chuckles] I can spot him through them phony disguises.

Prince John: Your pleas have not fallen upon a heart of stone, but traitors to the crown must die--
Robin Hood: [Cutting him off] Traitors to the crown? That crown belongs to King Richard. Long live King Richard!
Crowd: Long live King Richard!
Prince John: [Throwing a childish tantrum] Enough! I am King! King! King! Off with his head!

Prince John: Stop! Executioner, stop! Hold your axe!
Little John: [Threatening him with a dagger] Okay, big shot. Now tell him to untie my buddy, or I'll... [Presses the dagger into Prince John's back, making him flinch]
Prince John: Sheriff, release my buddy! [Flinches again] I mean, release the prisoner!
Sheriff of Nottingham: Untie the prisoner?
Lady Kluck: You heard what he said, bushel-britches!
Prince John: Sheriff, I make the rules! And since I'm head man... [To Little John] Not so hard, you mean thing. [Back to the Sheriff] LET HIM GO, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKES! LET HIM GO!

Robin Hood: [In the midst of battle] Marian, my love, will you marry me?
Maid Marian: Oh, darling, I thought you'd never ask me. But you could have chosen a more romantic setting.
Robin Hood: For our honeymoon: London!
Maid Marian: Yes!
Robin Hood: Normandy!
Maid Marian: Yes!
Robin Hood: Sunny Spain?
Maid Marian: [Laughs] Why not?

Robin Hood: We'll have six children!
Maid Marian: Six? Oh, a dozen at least!

Prince John: Stop the girl! [Skippy shoots an arrow into his backside] Ooh!
Lady Kluck: [Smacking Prince John on the head with the golden arrow] Take that, you scurvy knave!
Prince John: Seize the fat one!

Prince John: Hiss! You're never around when I need you!
Sir Hiss: Coming, coming.
[He begins singing "For I'm a Jolly Good Fellow" until Prince John uncorks the wine-barrel he's in.]
Sir Hiss: Oh! Oh, there you are, old boy! P.J., you won't believe this, but the stork is really Robin Hood.
Prince John: [Simmering] Robin Hood?
[Hiss nods happily]
Prince John: [Loses his temper] AAAAAHHH! [Ties Hiss in an intricate knot around a pole] Get out of that if you can.

[The Sheriff of Nottingham enters the castle singing "The Phony King of England"]
Sheriff of Nottingham: [Singing] He throws an angry tantrum if he cannot have his way! He calls for Mom and sucks his thumb and doesn't want to play! Too late to be known as John the First, he's sure to be known as John the Worst! [Speaking] How about that?
Sir Hiss: [Chuckles] That's P.J. to a "T"! Let me try, let me try. [Singing] Too late to be known as John the First, he's sure to be known as John the Worst-- [sees Prince John peeking behind a door, with a glass jug of wine in his hand; stutters, gulps] The fabulous, marvelous, merciful, chivalrous...
Sheriff of Nottingham: No, no, no. You've got it all wrong, Hiss. The snivelin', grovelin', measly, weasely--
Prince John: ENOUGH! [throws the glass jug at the Sheriff, but it hits the wall and the wine rains down on him]
Sheriff of Nottingham: But sire, it's a big hit. The whole village is singin' it!
Prince John: Oh, they are, are they? Well, they'll be singing a different tune. Double the taxes! Triple the taxes! Squeeze every last drop out of those insolent, musical peasants.

[The Sheriff has taken the last coin from the Poor Box]
Friar Tuck: Now, just a minute, Sheriff! That's the Poor Box!
Sheriff of Nottingham: It sure is, and I'll just take it for poor Prince John. Every little bit helps.
Sister Mouse: Ooh! You put that back!
Sheriff of Nottingham: His Highness blesses you too, Miss.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Now take it easy, Friar. I'm just doin' my duty.
Friar Tuck: Collecting taxes for that arrogant, greedy, ruthless, NO-GOOD PRINCE JOHN?!
Sheriff of Nottingham: [Losing patience] Listen, Friar. You're mighty preachy, and you gonna preach your neck right into a hangman's noose.
Friar Tuck: [Finally exploding] GET OUTTA MY CHURCH! [He pushes the Sheriff out into the rain] OUT! OUT! OUT! OUT!
Sister Mouse: Oh dear...
[Outside, Friar Tuck is attacking the Sheriff with his quarterstaff]
Father Sexton: Give it to him, give it to him! Give it to him, Friar!

Sir Hiss: Sire, taxes are pouring in, the jail is full... and, oh, I have good news, Sire. Friar Tuck is in jail.
Prince John: [Exploding] FRIAR TUCK?! It's ROBIN HOOD I want, you idiot! Oh, I'd give all my gold if I could just get my hands on... [Pauses] Did you say, Friar Tuck?
Sir Hiss: Did I? Y-yes, I did.
Prince John: Ah! Hiss, I have it! I'll use that fat friar as bait to trap Robin Hood.
Sir Hiss: Another trap?
Prince John: Yes, yes, you stupid serpent! Friar Tuck will be led to the gallows at the village square, don't you see?
Sir Hiss: [Shocked] B-but Sire! Hang Friar Tuck?! A man of the Church?!
Prince John: Yes, my reluctant reptile. And when our elusive hero tries to rescue the corpulent cleric - Ha ha ha ha! - my men will be ready.

[The Sheriff and the vultures are building a scaffold to hang Friar Tuck.]
Sheriff of Nottingham: Well, Trigger. Everything's rigged up and all set.
Trigger: Yep, it's one of the prettiest scaffolds you ever built, Sheriff.
Nutsy: Sheriff, don't you reckon we'd oughta give that there trap door a test?
[He pulls a lever and opens the trap door, causing the Sheriff to fall in]
Sheriff of Nottingham: Criminently, now I know why your mama called you "Nutsy".

Little John: Rob, we can't let 'em hang Friar Tuck!
Robin Hood: [whispering] A jailbreak, tonight, is the only chance he's got.
Little John: A jailbreak?! There ain't no way you can get him--
Robin Hood: We've got to, Johnny. Or Friar Tuck dies at dawn.

Nutsy: [Shouting] ONE O'CLOCK, AND ALL'S WELL!
[The clock - which is actually at 3:00 - chimes three times]
Sheriff of Nottingham: Nutsy, you better set your brains ahead a couple of hours.
Nutsy: Yes, sir. Uh, does that there mean addin' or subtractin'?
Sheriff of Nottingham: Oh, let's forget it.
Nutsy: Yes, sir, Sheriff, sir. [Starts to march away]
Sheriff of Nottingham: Nutsy, how can I sleep with you yellin' "All's well" all the time?
Trigger: [Arriving, crossbow at the ready] Sheriff, everything ain't "all's well." [Absent-mindedly aims it at the Sheriff] I got a feelin' in my bones there's gonna be a jailbreak any minute--
Sheriff of Nottingham: [Pushing it aside in alarm] Criminently, Trigger! Point that peashooter the other way.
Trigger: Don't you worry none, Sheriff. The safety's on "Old Betsy"--
[He taps the side of the crossbow. "Old Betsy" goes off and the arrow ricochets around for a moment]
Sheriff of Nottingham: What in tarnation are you tryin' to do, you birdbrain?! [Bonks him on the head]
Trigger: Just doin' my duty, Sheriff.
Sheriff of Nottingham: Oh, you and that itchy trigger-finger of yours...

Sheriff of Nottingham: Wait a minute. Is the safety on "Old Betsy?"
Trigger: [Tapping the side of the crossbow] You bet it is, Sheriff.
Sheriff of Nottingham: That's what I'm afraid of. You go first.

[Putting rescued villagers on a wagon during the jailbreak]
Robin Hood: That's all of them. Get going!
Little John: This ain't no hayride. Let's move it outta here. Hoooooo!
Friar Tuck: On to Sherwood Forest!
