Lady Marian:
He is different from anyone I've ever known. He's, well he's brave and he's reckless, and yet he's...gentle and kind. He's not brutal like...tell me, when you are in love, is it, well, is it hard to think of anybody but, but one person?

Bess:
Yes, indeed my lady, and sometimes it's a bit of trouble sleeping.

Lady Marian:
I know, but it's a nice kind of not sleeping.

Bess:
And it affects your appetite too. Not that I've noticed it's done that to you, except when he was in the dungeon waiting to be hanged.

Lady Marian:
And does it make you want to be with him all the time?

Bess:
Yes, and when he's with you, your legs are as weak as water. Tell me, my lady. When he looks at you, do you feel a kind of prickly feeling like goosy pimples running all up and down your spine?...Then there's not a doubt of it.

Lady Marian:
Doubt of what?

Robin Hood:
[entering] That you're in love. I couldn't help overhearing about that 'prickly feeling.' I'm very glad I did come.

Lady Marian:
That, that was a game. Now you've got to go at once.

Robin Hood:
Game, eh? Well, couldn't I join in? Of course, I probably wouldn't be as good at it as, uh, [he playfully pinches Bess' chin] this pretty young girl. I could do my best.

Lady Marian:
Bess, will you leave us? Please.

Robin Hood:
Now let's see, where does this game begin? Oh, I know. It's simple. We'll start where you are in love with me. You are, aren't you? Because I am with you. Terribly. That's why I came. I had to see you.

Lady Marian:
You must go at once and I don't love you.

Robin Hood:
Oh! You sure?

Lady Marian:
Yes.

Robin Hood:
Very well then, I'll go. [Robin retreats to the window to descend the ivy.] This is rather unfriendly of you, exposing me to my enemies like this....Goodbye my lady.

Lady Marian:
Robin!

Robin Hood:
Yes?

Lady Marian:
Please.

Robin Hood:
Then you do love me, don't you? Don't you?

Lady Marian:
You know I do.

Robin Hood:
Well, that's different. [Robin re-enters the window and they share an embrace and kiss.]

Lady Marian:
You know you're very impudent.

Robin Hood:
Me?

Lady Marian:
You are. And when my real guardian King Richard finds out about your being in love with me...

Robin Hood:
I know, he'll make me court jester.

Lady Marian:
He won't. He'll stick your funny head on London's Gate.

Robin Hood:
A very fine decoration it will be, my bold Norman beauty.

Lady Marian:
I'm not bold.

Robin Hood:
But you're a Norman...And you are a beauty. You are the most beautiful...

Lady Marian:
And you're leaving here at once. Please darling! Every minute you're here, you're in danger.

Robin Hood:
I'll go...
