Arthur: I can't, Gwen. You know I can't. Gwen : Merlin has proof that Gaius is innocent. Arthur: My father has already passed.

Is it really that hard to admit you like her? How can I admit that I think about her all the time? I care about her more than anyone? I don't know what I'll do if any harm comes to her? Because nothing can ever happen between us. To admit my feelings, knowing that Who's to say nothing can happen? My father won't let me rescue a servant. Do you honestly believe he'd let me marry one? You want to marry Gwen?! It's all talk, and that's all it can ever be.

When you're King, you can change that. I can't expect Guinevere to wait for me. If she feels as you do, she'll wait for you. We don't even know if she's still alive.

We will find her.

Arthur Gwen quotes

Come on, we've got a long track ahead. You mean more than you already do? We could talk about your feelings while you walk? I saw what you did, earlier. The people owe you a debt of gratitude.

The people owe me nothing. My father is still going to impose the tax. Will he not be persuaded? He can't stand the sight of me. The King loves you. You should have heard the way he spoke to me. I'm sure he was angry but you're still his son. Everyone appreciates what you did.

They know you tried and they won't forget that. One day I will be the King of Camelot. I cannot be a friend to the people as well as their ruler.

That's not true and you will prove it when you become King. You've a kind heart, Arthur. Arthur, Arthur, you've got to stop this. You know I can't. Merlin has proof that Gaius is innocent. My father has already passed sentence.

You can do the right thing, Arthur Pendragon. You can show some faith in a loyal friend or you can stand by and watch an innocent man die. You did it once before to my father. Are you really willing to let it happen again? And you can stop looking at me like that. I know I'm only a servant. I thought you were a prince. So start behaving like one. Well, may I present Guinevere. I think Gwen's a very lucky woman. I've never heard of an Afanc before.

It's conjured from clay by powerful magic. The type that can only be invoked by an ancient sorcerer. One who has the power to mirror the spirit of life. I found this at the water source. We must be vigilant, sire. Will I never be rid of her? What's happened to him? I don't know, sire. It's the second case I've seen today. Why didn't you report it to me? I was attempting to find the cause. What did you conclude? I don't think it's time to hurry to conclusions.

The scientific process is a long one. Why do you conceal it from me? Sire, I have seen nothing like it. The victims are dying within twenty-four hours and it's spreading fast. What is the cause?

I think we should say the cause, the most likely cause, is sorcery. Increase your presence in the town. Double the guards on all the gates and lend the physician your servant. I'm going to need Gaius to find a cure. He needs all the help we can give him. If Gaius is right, believe me, the city will be wiped out. This is the kind of magic that undermines our authority, challenges all we've done. If we cannot control this plague, people will turn to magic for a cure.

We have to find this sorcerer and quickly. Tell Gaius my father wants to see him now. Why could he just tell you himself? Because that's the way it is. If he knew who I was, what I've done You'd be a dead servant. The Poisoned Chalice [1. Arthur, you are my only son and heir.

I can't risk losing you for the sake of some serving boy. Because his life's worthless? No, because it's worth less than yours. One that would risk his life for a lowly servant, or one that does what his father tells him to? Okay, let the bragging begin. How did you manage it? All I do know is that I had help Someone knew I was in trouble and Whoever it was, I'm only here because of them. I'm glad you're back. Look at him, Gaius. Does Lancelot not deserve this moment?

I never said he didn't, but destiny and desserts are not the same thing. You played God, Merlin. You set him on a path of your choosing. Tonight might have brought him triumph but who knows what the future holds? I don't know what it said on your invitation but on mine it said 'celebration'. I think our Sir Lancelot might have eyes for you, Gwen. So what if he did? Would it really be so bad? He's not really my type. Oh, there's a surprise. Sometimes, Guinevere, I wonder if you'd know what your type was if it was standing right next to you.

So, come on, just for the sake of argument. If you had to: But I don't have to and I never will. You are no fun, Gwen. Grumant's the third to fail this month. How am I supposed to defend Camelot with rubbish like that? Well, I think I might be able to help. You haven't the faintest idea what it takes to be a knight.

No, of course I don't. But I do know someone who does. He saved my life. That's blown it for starters. I'm sure he's terrific but you forget the First Code of Camelot. Only those of noble blood can serve as knights. So, unless your friend is a nobleman Oh, he is a nobleman. Very well, bring him to the training ground tomorrow and make sure he brings his seal of nobility. You're not a nobleman by any chance, are you?

Why do you ask? The First Code of Camelot states that only those of noble blood can serve as a knight. Uther created the knights to protect this kingdom from those who would wish to destroy it. He knew that he would have to trust each of his knights with his life, so he chose them from the families that had sworn allegiance to him. And thus the First Code of Camelot was born, and ever since that day only the sons of noble families have served as knights.

That is not fair!

merlin arthur and gwen first meet quotes

Fair or unfair, that's the way it is. Why do you want to be a knight so much? When I was a boy, my village was attacked by raiders from the Northern Plains. They were slaughtered where they stood. My father, my mother, everyone. I vowed that day that never again would I be helpless against the face of tyranny. I made swordcraft my life.

Every waking hour since that day, I devoted to the art of combat. When I was ready, I set forth for Camelot. And now it seems my journey ends. Everything I fought for, wasted. Whatever it takes, I will make this right.

Ever since I was a child, I've dreamed of coming here. It's my life's ambition to join the knights of Camelot. I know what you're thinking.

I expect too much. After all, who am I? They have their pick of the best and bravest in the land. They are going to love you. I've seen you in action. You could shame the great Arthur himself. I hardly think so. He's trying out for the knights. The First Code of Camelot has never been broken for any man. What have you done, Merlin? OK, I bent the rules a little. But the rules were wrong.

You bent the rules. It was nothing, honestly. More of a trick than actual magic. Your magic is not a toy, Merlin. It's not for you to use or abuse as you see fit. I know, I know. Then why did you do it? I owe Lancelot my life. I'm paying for that debt the only way I can by giving him the opportunity he deserves. I think it's great Merlin's got you this chance. We need men like you. Well, not me, personally but, you know, Camelot. Not just Arthur and his kind but people like you and me.

Well, I'm not a knight yet, my lady. And I'm not a lady. Merlin visits Lancelot who is imprisoned in the dungeons Merlin: I don't know what to say to you, Lancelot. You're not to blame. I made you lie. The choice was mine. My punishment is mine to bear and mine to bear alone. I wish there was something I could do.

You can stop blaming yourself. The griffin can only be killed by magic? Yes, Merlin, I'm certain of it. If Arthur rides out against it, he'll die. He must be stopped. Uther must see reason. Where magic is concerned, our king is blind to reason, and yet The true purpose of your magic. You saw it, Gaius. I can't go up against that thing. But if you do not, Arthur will surely perish. I don't have magic that powerful. There must be another way.

This is the only way. Do you even care what happens to me? Go and kill the griffin, Merlin, I'll just sit here and warm my feet by the fire! Merlin, you are the only thing I care about in all this world. I would give my life for you without a thought. I cannot save Arthur. It is not my destiny. I don't know what else I can say. I'll say it for you. We have two hours to find a way to kill that thing. Arthur visits Lancelot who is imprisoned in the dungeons Arthur: I should have known.

  • Merlin (TV Series)

How could I have been so stupid? You don't sound like a knight. You don't even look like a knight! Because, Lancelot, you fight like a knight. We could not kill it. I've never faced its like. I faced it myself, sire, some days past. I struck it full square. I wondered how it endured. There are those who believe this creature, this griffin, is a creature of magic. It's only magic can destroy it. Do you believe this?

It doesn't matter what I believe. Use of magic is not permitted. Knights must prevail with steel and sinew alone. There's a horse waiting outside. Lancelot, take it and never return to this place. It's not my freedom I seek. I only wish to serve with honor. Then let me ride with you, sire. My father knows nothing of this.

I release you myself but I can do no more. Now go, before I change my mind. I'm sorry to disturb you, my lady. What are you doing here? I have no time to explain. I need weapons, armor, the best you've got.

What's this all about? Arthur stands in mortal peril. I must do what I can to protect him. It's my duty, knight or not. You really believe that, don't you? Lancelot, I don't believe I've ever met your like before. Guinevere, if I should not return But go I must.

They'll restore your knighthood, of course they will. You killed the griffin. But I didn't kill the griffin. Your secret's safe with me, but I cannot take the credit for what I did not do. There'll be no more lies, no more deceit. What are you going to do? The only thing I can do. Lancelot attempts to enter the chamber but is stopped by guards Uther: I will hear him. I have come to bid you farewell.

What is this, Lancelot? I lied to you both and now there is conflict between you. I cannot bear that burden, as you should not bear mine. I must start again, far from here, and maybe one day fate will grant me another chance to prove myself a worthy knight of Camelot. But, Lancelot, you've already proved that to us. Well, I must prove it to myself.

merlin arthur and gwen first meet quotes

Lancelot leaves the chamber Arthur: I confess it, sire. I released him and I'll take the consequences but surely Lancelot's actions change things! His actions change nothing.

He broke the Code! He lay down his life for me! He served with honor. I see you feel strongly about this, Arthur. Under the circumstances, a pardon perhaps Not good enough, father. You must restore Lancelot to his rightful place as a knight of Camelot. The law is the law. The Code bends for no man! Then the Code is wrong! Merlin and Gaius watch Lancelot leave Camelot Merlin: Perhaps you were right, Gaius.

Perhaps I should have never got involved. No, Merlin, I was wrong. Lancelot needed you and you needed Lancelot. Your destinies were entwined. Will he ever return? That I cannot say. Til next time then, Sir Lancelot. A Remedy to Cure All Ills [1. I didn't save Uther. For once, I'm happy for someone else to take the credit. You were prepared to sacrifice your life to save me. Where do you get that from? I didn't do anything. You saved me and you saved Uther. Maybe you are a genius. Has anyone ever told you you're a genius?

Your body is now paralyzed. Now, open your eyes, my lord. I want my face to be the last face you ever see. You took my childhood from me and now, finally, I take my parents' revenge. Within a few hours, the beetle will eat into your brain and you will suffer- as they suffered. And I long to hear you scream as they screamed the night you gave the order for the fires to be lit. With your death, magic will return to Camelot. I don't want you to go. I don't trust Edwin.

There was no blood in Morgana's ear. He put it there. He did something to her, I know he did. You need to be careful who you say that to. I'm saying it to you, because you can do something about it. But you think the same, don't you? It's not that simple.

Merlin arthur and gwen baby

So you're going to turn your back on us. I have no choice. In life you always have a choice. Sometimes it's easier to think that you don't.

Well then, my choice is to leave. Then I'll miss you. It's time I stepped down. What are you doing? I cannot stay when there's no longer a use for me. I believe it's for the best. Then I will come with you. Merlin, you're like a son to me. I never expected such a blessing so late in life. And you are more than a father to me. Then as a father, I must tell you, you must remain here. Camelot is where you belong. But you belong here too. Merlin, you must promise me you will not waste your gifts.

My gifts mean nothing without you to guide me. How old a man can become and yet change so little. You have not changed either. Almost a lifetime to make the short journey back to where you began. I'm not here for myself. You know about Merlin? You have struggled against his destiny but you can no more prevent it than he can. So it is true then?

He and the young Pendragon one day will unite the land of Albion. But he is in danger. No, it is my jailer who stands in peril. Must Uther be sacrificed for the boy?

For her sake, I hope not. When you failed to show up for patrol this morning, I feared you'd eloped with Sophia in a fit of passion. I wish he had, because then I wouldn't be stood in front of you looking like an idiot. This is becoming a near daily occurrence with you. But there was a mistake, and I would not say it was anyone's fault You could say it was mine.

Could somebody tell me what happened? Somebody with a brain. After Sophia left, I wanted to take my mind off her so I went for a hunt. So killing things mends a broken heart? No, but it's good fun.

Merlin was meant to inform you that I wouldn't be back til later today. Have you some kind of mental affliction? I'm looking into it, sire. Well, I hope for our sake you find a cure or we'll find ourselves with a food shortage on our hands. Cut to Merlin in the stocks, being pelted with rotten fruit Merlin: Can you remember anything?

There was a girl. I asked my father something about her What was I thinking? Well, we did wonder. Especially when you eloped with her last night. Merlin had to bring you back to Camelot.

I don't recall any of this. It must have been some blow. Well, when I caught up with you, I couldn't persuade you to return.

You were beyond reasoning. So I had to make you. You managed to knock me out? With a lump of wood. He only did it to bring you back safely. No-one can know about this. You would think the appeal of pelting the same person with fruit would wear off after a while, but oh no. Your father's bestowing a knighthood on one of your men this morning. I'm giving it a miss. Won't your king mind? Not if you cover for me again. By the way, thanks for yesterday. I heard you ended up in the stocks.

Make sure you don't end up in the stocks this time. I think I'm starting to get the hang of this whole deception lark. Cut to Merlin in the stocks, being pelted with rotten fruit and potatoes Uther: I'm not sure where he is.

But it's not his fault. Stop gibbering and tell me where he is. I can see that. Arthur wasn't sure of his orders so he asked me to check with the guards and see if he was riding out this morning and, well, I may have forgotten.

I'm sorry, my lord. I am sure he would have been here- had I told him.

I could never forget that face. You should speak to the king. And tell him what? That I can see the future? If you think Arthur's life is in danger You know how he'd react. He wouldn't harm you!

I start sweating, my vision blurs, my brain stops working Well, no change there then.

Look, I promised Sophia I'd take her out, and if I don't turn up, it'll blow my chances. You like her, then. What's not to like? I want to spend some more time with her but I need to get my father off my back.

How did you know? Like you, I hear him speak. Why does he call me Emrys? Because that is your name. I'm pretty sure my name's Merlin. It always has been. You have many names. How does the boy know who I am? I've never even met any druids. There is much written about you that you have yet to read. You should not protect this boy.

He's just like me. You and the boy are as different as day and night. I feel like I've put you in danger without stopping to ask how you feel about it. I know how it feels to face the threat of execution and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
