Gladiator (2000, Ridley Scott)
COMMODUS: I searched the faces of the gods for ways to please you, to make you proud.... One kind word, one full hug while you pressed me to your chest and held me tight, would have been like the sun on my heart for a thousand years.... What is it in me you hate so much? All I ever wanted was to live up to you, Caesar, Father.
MARCUS: Commodus, your faults as a son, is my failure as a father.
COMMODUS: Father, I would butcher the whole world if you would only love me!!!
MAXIMUS: My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius. Commander of the armies of the North, general of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor Marcus Aurelius, father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife, and I will have my vengeance in this life or the next.
Braveheart (1995, Mel Gibson)
WILLIAM WALLACE: 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?
CALAUL: It can all end. Right now! Bliss. Peace. Just say it. Cry out. “Mercy!” yes? ...Yes?
CALAUL: The prisoner wishes to say a word!
WILLIAM WALLACE: FREEEEE-DOMMMMMM!
WILLIAM WALLACE: All men die, not all men really live
