A Knight's Tale (2001) Poster

Laura Fraser: Kate



  • Wat : You have been weighed.

    Roland : You have been measured.

    Kate : And you have absolutely...

    Chaucer : Been found wanting.

    William : Welcome to New World. God save you, if it is right that He should do so.

  • Kate : With hope. Love should end with hope. My husband, God rest him, told me something I'll never forget.

    [in a letter] 

    Kate : Hope guides me. It is what gets me through the day and especially the night. The hope that after you're gone from my sight it will not be the last time I look upon you.

  • Kate : It is romantic though.

    Roland : Are you a woman or a blacksmith?

    Kate : Sometimes I'm both.

  • Roland , Chaucer , Kate , Wat : [singing]  He's blond, he's pissed, he'll see you in the lists, Lichtenstein! Lichtenstein! He's blond, he's tanned, he comes from Gelderland, he comes from Gelderland! Gelderland, Gelderland, Gelderland... Gelderland, Gelderland, Gelderland...

  • Wat : Say something about her breasts.

    Roland : Yeah, you miss her breasts.

    William : Her breasts.

    Chaucer : Ye... yes, you... you could, umm... umm... but I... I would tend to look above her breasts, William.

    William : Well I... I miss her throat.

    Chaucer : Uh, still higher really, toward the heavens.

    Kate : The moon at least, her breasts were not that impressive.

  • William : [on asking Kate to mend his armour]  It's just as well, they told me I was daft for even asking.

    Kate : Who?

    William : The other armourers.

    Kate : Did they say I couldn't do it because I'm a woman?

    William : No, they said you were great with horseshoes, but shite with armour. The fact that you were a woman wasn't even mentioned.

  • Kate : With hope, love should end with hope

  • Chaucer : A bit higher. More toward the heavens.

    Kate : The moon at least. Her breasts aren't that impressive.

  • [last lines] 

    Roland , Chaucer , Kate : Your round!

  • William : What do you think? Now that you know what I am?

    Jocelyn : To know what you are, William, would take a lifetime. One I am most willing to give. But right now you've got to run. There's nothing else to do. Run and I will run with you.

    William : Jocelyn, I cannot run. I'm a knight. And I will put myself to the hazard!

    Roland : A knight in your heart but not on paper. And paper's all that matters to them!

    Jocelyn : William, I love you. I love you. You... and I'm sorry but I won't see you led away, bound for the stocks.

    William : Oh, but you will see me run? No!

    Jocelyn : Damn your pride, William! It is you and only you that will not see you run!

    William : My pride is the only thing they can't take away from me!

    Jocelyn : But they can take it from you! They can and they will. Oh, they will. But love they cannot take.

    William : And... and where will we live? In... in my hovel? With the pigs inside in the winter so they won't freeze?

    Jocelyn : [crying]  Yes, William, with the pigs... with the pigs. The poor can marry for love.

    William : [angry]  Oh, Jocelyn, you speak of what you do not know!

    Jocelyn : William, I beg you! Please... run. Do it for love.

    William : [William turns around, looking desperately for support]  Roland, you would see me run?

    [Roland nods and looks down] 

    William : And you, Geoff?

    Chaucer : Yes, I wish you to with all the pieces of my heart.

    William : Wat, you and I, we aren't runners.

    Wat : [Wat smiles, but is holding back tears]  Yes... William, today we are.

    Kate : Run, William.

    William : NO!

    [Jocelyn closes her eyes, tears leaking down her cheeks] 

    William : I will not run! I am a knight!
