William Wallace Inspires his Troops

In Bravehert, William Wallace must rally his troops as they are about to face an enemy that outnumbers them in both weapons and soldiers. It's become a famous movie speech and we have it for you here in full.

William Wallace: For presenting yourselves on this battlefield, I give you thanks.

Soldier: This is our army. To join it, you give homage.

William Wallace: I give homage to Scotland. And if this is your army, why does it go?

Soldier: We didn’t come to fight for them!

Soldier: Home! The English are too many!

William Wallace: Sons of Scotland!... I am William Wallace!

Soldier: William Wallace is seven feet tall!

William Wallace: Yes, I have heard! He kills men by the hundreds! And if he were here, he would consume the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his ass!

I am William Wallace. And my enemies do not go away. I saw out good nobles hanged. My wife... I am William Wallace. And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men. And free men you are! What will you do with freedom? Will you fight?

Soldier: Two thousand, against ten? We will run--and live!

William Wallace: Yes. Fight and you may die. Run and you will live, at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that, for one change to come back here as young men, and tell our enemies that they make take our lives, but they will never take our freedom?
