King Henry V

King Henry V ascends his father’s throne outside of 15th century London, England.

“Mm.  What is it?  How did you get inside?  It was not.  It was not ajar.  Yes.  No.  I don’t want your coin.  I will require your undiminished loyalty from here till Megiddo.” — King Henry V

“Who are you?  For what?  What is this?  Hmm.  I suggest you return to the palace directly and tell him his request was wholly ignored.  You might tell him the urgency was also wholly ignored.  Go away.” — King Henry V

“Nor have I sought it.  When do you fight?  You need not fight.  These feuds need not be yours.” — King Henry V

“Stop.  Stop.” — King Henry V

“I will not allow this havoc to transpire.  I’ve come to see it stopped.  If I have my way, there will be no battle.  You.  Come here.  Go to the rebel camp, deliver the following message to Percy Hotspur.  Tell him that Prince Henry challenges him to settle today’s score man on man.  He and I.  We will fight in our armies’ places.  I am nobody to you.” — King Henry V

“You do not know war, Thomas.  You do not.  You’ve been recruited to our father’s madness, to wars that need not be fought.  These men are not our enemies.  Our father has made them thus.  I do this not to steal your thunder, brother.  I do it to save your life.  It will be done.  This fight need not be had, Percy.  My father will soon be dead.  Your grievances will die with him.  Hmm.  Someday this will be your head, dropped at the feet of a man who might otherwise have been your brother.  Come with me now, Thomas, please.  Walk away from this field.” — King Henry V

“Stop talking, old man, please.  Please stop talking.  What business?  Mm.  You should hurry along then.  Hmm, that hook has lost its worm.  Why do you say this to me?  Speak to Thomas.  Is he not to be your new king?  Soon he will have it.  Leave it.  You feel this cold?  Wretch.  You know not what will become of you.  So, I offer you this… the most blessed reprieve, the most dreadful misery.  You shall suffer the indignity of serving me, the wayward son you so revile.  But know now you will be watched over by an altogether different king.” — King Henry V

“Beautiful.  I’m sure you all know… my young sister Philippa has joined us here today.  Queen of Denmark.  I’m thankful she and her husband, the good King Eric, have traveled all this way.  I wish for you take this vase, my dear.  Let its beauty stand for your beauty, which stands in turn for England’s beauty.  A bird?  A dead one, I should suppose.  Hmm.  A wonder.  This belongs to my cousin, Cambridge.  Of all at this table, none have I known longer than I have you.  Indeed I have known you longer than I have my own young sister.  We were raised together.  You’re like an older brother to me.  So, I think it only fitting that you should have this magical bird.  Let’s hope its magic isn’t black and unholy.  A ball.  There is no accompanying message from the Dauphin?  I shall keep this gift.  This one is only sent for me.  For the boy I once was.” — King Henry V

“Remember where, as prince, I whiled and how I spent my days?  Drinking, clowning.  So, is there not some truth in this jest?  If the Dauphin wants from me a paroxysm, why give it him?  I appreciate your umbrage, William, but my strength does not lie in me flapping up and down at the slightest barb like… some unholy mechanical bird.  Make sense of this.  This is what is pressing.  This strife must end.  And it will end… by conciliation.  We shall pardon our adversaries.  And we shall pay Mortimer’s ransom and have him returned from Wales.  I will write these pardons in mine own hand.  I want it known these sentiments are so personal to me.  We shall let these men know they were my father’s enemies, not mine.  How does this strategy greet you?” — King Henry V

“There was no reconciliation to be had.  He did untold harm to this kingdom.  His death will bring calm with it.  I want an end to this unrest.  With reverence.  I’m finding this story impossible to follow.  Is that so?  What confuses me now is why you are telling me this story.  And you believe that need will indeed soon arise?  Preparedness?  If we are to war with France, it will not come as a consequence of an old and impenetrable madrigal.  Jerusalem?  We’re all the way to the Holy Land, are we?  And presumably to sack the rest of Christendom along the way.  I am not my father, archbishop.  I would have thought this to be clear by now.” — King Henry V

“Which is strange, given I would have thought gifted oratory a requirement of the position.  Why is the archbishop speaking to me of war with France?  And what mood is this?  Do you share this mood?” — King Henry V

“Who are you?  I do not doubt this can be arranged.  It can be arranged.  Charles himself sent you?  You know this to be certain?  What was the order?  How?” — King Henry V

“At such a time as I endeavor to foster a fresh and peaceful air for this kingdom to breathe, it is not in my interest to stir hostility with another.  Would you consider me weak, Chief Justice?  What the kingdom sees.  Mm.  How, pray, might the kingdom see the weasel beneath our feet.  Take down these words… addressed to King Charles of France.  This assassin you send can be taken as nothing other than an infant act of war.  If this be your intention, I say you let it be known plainly and that you desist from this timorous slither in which you presently engage.  If it be war you seek, send the full weight of your army.  For a lone, cowardly assassin will not topple this King Henry the Fifth of England you so underestimate.  Fill this with gunstones and send it back to France.” — King Henry V

“As of this day, we’re at war with France.  Twice I have given her the benefit of my doubt.  This third affront will not be left unchecked.  And so, in order to flush these French rats from their nests, I will have it communicated to them that we are now at war.  My Lord Grey.  Cambridge.  I would ask you to deliver this message to France, given your… familiarity with its recipient.  But I believe in the morning you be otherwise engaged.” — King Henry V

“Tomorrow you will have your heads cut off.  I have chosen to send you as an advance party to Hell for the considerable French number that will soon be needing to find space there.  You were once my friend.” — King Henry V

“The hostess can stay.  I acknowledge my neglect of you, John.  A new chapter of my life has begun before the last could be properly closed.  These concerns are mine and mine alone.  but the fact that this here be the first occasion I’ve had to sound them aloud to anyone other than myself speaks volumes.  It speaks to the loneliness of the position in which I find myself.  To steer our present course, I’ve been forced to rely upon the counsel of men whose loyalty I question every waking moment.  Every waking moment.  I need men around me I can trust.  I’m here because you are my friend.  I’m sorry my occasion to visit… carries with it this doeful weight.” — King Henry V

“We welcome those newly arrived here.  Turn us now in common poise, with on mind, sharpened.  Together… we will bring France down.  Together… we will bring her to her knees.  Captains all, to this end, I wish to introduce to you a new marshal of our campaign.  Sir John Falstaff.  Sir John’s experience in battle should need no recitation.  You know him.  Some of you have had the honor of fighting alongside him.  Others have heard tale of his exploits.  But I have tasked Sir John to join this campaign for one most vital reason alone: he respects war as only a man who has seen its most monstrous form can.  He lusts after it not, but rather regards it with the grim sobriety that you and your men should hope he would.” — King Henry V

King Henry IV, The King, Netflix, Plan B Entertainment, Porchlight Films, Blue-Tongue Films, Pioneer Stilking Films, Yoki, Ben MendelsohnKing Henry IV

“My lords.  I’m most sorry for making you wait.  I know you’ve traveled far and from great travail.  I pray you will know that this time of civil unrest… consumes me… day and night.  I understand… battle with the rebel Scots was hard fought.  Good Hotspur… you led the charge.  Were any prisoners of note taken?  Are they in train?  And why is that?  Why have they not been brought to me directly?  You’ll need to speak up, my boy.  I’m an old man.  My ears… are filled with hair.  I refuse to pay Mortimer’s ransom because I refuse to believe him a prisoner.  I rather believe Mortimer a traitor.  He has joined the Welsh rebels.  He has betrayed England and is now an enemy of mine, and, therefore, of yours.  You agree with my précis, young Hotspur?  Oh, no, let him speak.  I wish to hear him.  Chicken’s can’t fly.  But I’ve seen one… eke enough wing flap to clear a fence.  You are right, young Percy.  I owe you much.  I owe your family still more.  But if the Scottish traitors you’ve taken prisoner are not brought to me as speedily as they might travel, I will hang you by your fucking neck.  Has this been heard, young Percy?  What a venomous boy.  He’ll betray me now.  I’m sure of it.  If only he were my son.” — King Henry IV

“My son.  Come in.  I feel my life nearing its natural end, and yet, still… even I must appear of ruder health than you.  The time has come for us to consider… the issue of… my succession.  You will not be king.  While you are my eldest son, for reasons that are on display for all here to see, smell… you will not inherit this crown.  That privilege and responsibility will instead fall to your brother Thomas.  He is soft, but he is eager.  He will lead my army against the newly treasonous Harry Percy.  I will assume that this news comes as neither surprise nor disappointment.  But it is my duty as king, and father… to say it to you directly.  I have said… what you were summonsed to hear.  Leave us now.” — King Henry IV

“Hal.  Hal.  You must be king, Hal.  Please.  You must be king, Hal.  I know not what I have done.” — King Henry IV

Sir John Falstaff, The King, Netflix, Plan B Entertainment, Porchlight Films, Blue-Tongue Films, Pioneer Stilking Films, Yoki, Joel EdgertonSir John Falstaff

“Hal.  Hal?  Hal.  Yeah.  See?  The door was ajar.  Yes, it was.  It was ajar.  Well, how else might we gain entry?  Are you accusing me of having cut myself a secret key?  Your highness.  There’s a fresh coin in this for you, you know.  You have that already.  You’re a soft negotiator.  Hey!  You’re wasting good wine.  Give it.  Oh.  That looks very hot.  Do it.  Ow!  Oh, privately, in the middle of Eastcheap?  Should I make a quick up and down and request a mass covering of ears?” — Falstaff

“My lady.  My lady, it’s time to leave.  The day has begun.  See?  Out there.  It is well underway.  You might miss it.  Get up now.  It’s important that you leave.  Up.  That’s the spirit.  Right.  Now, lift your arms.  Very good.  You must get that door fixed.  Visit with your father.  If your father is indeed gravely ill enough to request your presence, then you must visit with him.  It should be better to regret having done so than it would to have not.  If your father is ill, no matter your feelings for him, you must visit with him.  But… I saw this not out of concern for our king’s well-being, but more for fear of the drunken soak to which you’ll be likely to succumb should you failed to heed his call and he were to die without you having squared your ledger.  I fear that would be soak enough to out even me to shame.  Do it.  If nothing else I ever suggest.” — Falstaff

“Go away.  Beale.  Hello, friend.  Many times have I seen men in your state.  I’ve been in it many times over myself.  For all our rejoice of… courage and valor, nothing stains the soul more indelibly than killing.  Never have I felt so vile… than standing victorious on a battlefield.  The thrill of victory fades quickly.  What lingers long after… is always ugly.  Never again, I say.  I will never stop talking, Hal.  Never.  Never ever.” — Falstaff

“What is this?  I am I.  Who are you?  I think you just woke me up from it, didn’t you?  Who are you?  Where is Hal?” — Falstaff

“Disgusting.  Yes, we can.  Yes, she will.  Yes.  Yes!  I have paid you.  Lies.  Lies.  How dare you address me so?  Why would you be so churlish with the very man most likely to lift you from your stinking rat hole?  Oh, maybe you’ve forgot.  My associations now stretch to the highest reaches of the realm.  Your insolence might as well be directed to the king himself.  Ah.  Oh.  Oh.  Shut up.  I am not.” — Falstaff

“I will not jump to your attention.  And surely not to retread vile ground I vowed never to walk again.  A king has no friends.  A king has only… followers… and foe.  Hal.  I will come with you.  I ask only one favor in return.  Square my account with that terrible hag… over there.  Would you?” — Falstaff

“Welcome, and thank you… good sirs.  You’re all well met.” — Falstaff

Sir William, The King, Netflix, Plan B Entertainment, Porchlight Films, Blue-Tongue Films, Pioneer Stilking Films, Yoki, Sean HarrisSir William, Chief Justice

“Amen.” — William

“My lord.  It is a matter of great urgency.  Please, my lord.  It is my your father.  He’s dying.  Wait outside.  No doubt… your father has brought… much trouble to this kingdom, and I fear the chaos that might erupt in his absence.  England needs a king, and I suspect these sentiments of yours that had you resile from him are precisely those the governance of this land needs.  You must be king.  I’m afraid that is not possible.  Your brother was killed in Wales.  After your defeat of Percy Hotspur, young Thomas pressed on to the western fields.  This is where he met his end.  It is said he gave valiant account of himself.” — William

“Where is he?!  Where is the monster?!  Where is the monster?  Move.  Leave him.” — William

“If I may, my liege.  Unnatural mechanics from the edge of Christendom.” — William

“The ball is an insult to you and to your kingdom.  You must respond.  You spent them in considered privation.  It would not be a show of foul temper for you to respond forcefully to an insult such as that.  It would not be a show of foul temper for you to respond forcefully to an insult such as that.  It would be a show of strength.  Mm.  Civil strife has consumed us.  The war drains the purse like little else.  Certainly, my liege.  Great reforms are best enacted with regime change.  If this is how you wish to proceed, then, yes, my liege, now is the time to do it.” — William

“We must forgive our archbishop.  He is a far… far from gifted orator.  What we are witnessing is a stirring, of which we must be wary.  I applaud… your restraint.  After so many years of strife, you are proving to be more than your father’s son.  You wish to be a king for the people.  Now, we must ensure to that end, however, you do not remain oblivious to the mood of the people.  That France is taunting us.  Well… this mood is a fantasy.  But that does not mean it is not felt true.” — William

“He seeks asylum in return for his tale.  There are many ways to kill a man.  It is my talent… killing men who do not expect to be killed.” — William

“We share your longing for peace, my liege, but to ignore such an audacious act of aggression will be seen as weakness.  This is not game ball.  This is an assassin.  No.  No, I speak more of the kingdom.  What the kingdom sees.  If France’s animus towards you runs deep enough for them to send an assassin, it will be felt in the street, ours and theirs.  It will be known.  We share your concerns.  But peace today needs more than harmony.  It needs strength… and confidence.  These are qualities that can only originate in you, the king.  Our king.” — William

“The French king… teaches you this?  Is he not thankful for our young Henry’s light reaction to his provocation?  His plot came to naught.  Of course he would wish to wipe his hands of it.  This envoy is to be trusted, is he not, Cambridge?  Charles wishes to dethrone our king.  Hmm.  Yes, yes, Lord Grey, your– your concerns are current.  And they are numerous.  Something must be done.  Something will be done.  Give me quiet.” — William

“Thus is a king’s burden.  A king must make decisions lesser men are… neither willing nor able to make.  A king is indeed presented with quandaries lesser men might never encounter in the course of their whole lives.  I wish it were not so.  But problems… and this is my experience.  Problems that are left unattended… have a habit of becoming crises.  You have a chance here to unite the land, Hal.  Truly.  You have refreshed its mood with promise.  But promise must be fulfilled.  Promise can never be an end in itself.” — William

Sir Percy Hotspur, The King, Netflix, Plan B Entertainment, Porchlight Films, Blue-Tongue Films, Pioneer Stilking Films, Yoki, Tom Glynn-CarneySir Percy Hotspur

“Where go you, my friend?  You’re crawling in the wrong direction.  That wind you feel is coming from England.  Scotland’s that way.” — Hotspur

“Many.  No.  Why will you not pay cousin Mortimer’s ransom?  Cousin Mortimer is held by the rebels of Wales.  Why do you refuse to pay his ransom?  No.  I believe yours to be the ramblings of a crazy old demon.  Yours are the ramblings of an old man so saturated with malice and mistrust that he no longer knows up from down, can no longer see beyond the walls of his own monstrous schloss.  My family have served you.  We aided you in your ascension, and still we fight for you.  Cousin Mortimer has fought for you.  And yet, now, whilst you slobber over that chicken’s wing, he shivers in a western prison awaiting mutilation at the hands of Welsh witches.  All that we’ve done for you we have done for the good England.  But our lands are now more riven with war than ever before.  The Scots aren’t finished.  The Welsh have only just begun.  And for what?  Why do you think this might be, old man?  Why do you imagine might be to blame for this?” — Hotspur

“I will fight him.  And I will defeat him.  Whoa, whoa.  Ha!  Go!  Where is Henry?  I come to fight him in our armies’ stead.  The offer has been reconsidered.  Why is the little dog barking?  Hm?  Where be the big dog?  And here I am with the whoring fool.  don’t be afraid of our small contest, young Hal.  I promise to finish it quickly.  Come on.  Your father… is plague to England.  Come for me, big dog!” — Hotspur

“It was, my liege.  We lost some 300 men.  My son– Harry, please, stop this.  My liege– my liege… you must excuse my son.  He needs rest.  We come only… to advocate for your help in securing Mortimer’s release.  Your Majesty, please forgive us.” — Northumberland

“That you surely would, my son.  But it cannot be.  The prince speaks not for his father.  You are eager to fight, my son.  And you will.  And we shall fight alongside you.  We will burn them.  We will burn Henry’s reign to the ground.” — Northumberland

Prince Thomas, The King, Netflix, Plan B Entertainment, Porchlight Films, Blue-Tongue Films, Pioneer Stilking Films, Yoki, Dean-Charles ChapmanPrince Thomas

“I set off tomorrow.  We fight by week’s end.” — Thomas

“Lord Dorset.  Are your men ready for the day?  Very good.  Tell me of your preparations.  Why are you here?  This is my battle.  You have no place here.” — Thomas

“You have no place here.  I do know war.  Why then are you here?  You so disapprove of our cause, and yet, still, you find it necessary to upstage me.  No.  His offer was refused.  I said… no!  After you have stolen its prized scalp?  This is what will be spoken of tomorrow.  This field was mine.  It was to mark my dominion.  Instead now… it marks only this head.  This fucking head!  Move.” — Thomas

“While I see the strain your treasury is under, I cannot help but wonder if the canker of Lollardy be at the root of this suggestion that the church be burdened with a tax to relieve problems that are not of the church’s making.” — Archbishop

“The King needs rest.  He’s dying.” — Archbishop

“Amen.  All hail King Henry.” — Archbishop

“I speak to Charles of France’s claim to be the legitimate sovereign ruler of said lands.  It is said that the Salic law would have no succession if the French crown fall to a woman.  Meaning, no rule left in the lineage of the female shall, by rights, pass to her issue.  Now, the law Salic, which is of Frankish land and tethered to said lands is not– not therefore legally bound or adherent at all, in fact, to the lands of France, but to those of Francia, which, as you know, lies between the rivers of Elbe and Saale.  I claim here, with proof, that hence it follows that the law Salic, which has seen French sovereignty stolen as such from a true lineage– thrive, as I can illuminate, the French have cited the law Salic as reason to bar a female succession– yes, my liege?  My liege, I question the so-called French king’s claim to the throne upon which he sits.  My liege, I simply aim to bolster your claim to France should need to meet her with force soon arise.  I– my liege… by way of preparedness, I believe it always wise– France was your father’s long-held ambition.  Had he not been in civil feud, he would most surely have taken the fight to her.  And then… on to Jerusalem.” — Archbishop

“I thank you, my lord.” — Philippa

“Did you reconcile with our father before his death?  I ask not after the kingdom.  What of you?  Look around that table last night.  Look at the faces of the mean seated at it.  I can feel this calm of which you speak.  I do believe they wish you well.  But I also see that they have their own kingdoms behind their eyes.  Do you understand what I say?  I’ve been away too many years and I’m not to return to Denmark.  But I have, in my time in that court, been privy to its commissions.  I have seen there, again and again, that no one ever speaks true, wholly true.  Choose your steps wisely, dear brother.” — Philippa

“Nope!  No.  You’re not welcome here.  Unless you’ve come to pay me what you owe me.  You’ve paid me a snatch of what you owe.  And I presume, too, from the proceeds of thieving.  By all account, you be not specially good at thieving neither.  Are you speaking of Hal?  Where is he?  Where is Hal?  Where’s our king?  He be gone weeks and weeks now.  Where is he?  I would say… you be the one that’s been forgot.  I would say that your dalliance with the upper reaches of the realm was short-lived in and around his sick-bucket.  Seems you were little more than passing keeper of a prince’s puke.  Ponder that now.  You find someone to pay your way here.  I’ll not be paying it for you.” — Hooper
