The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian


Peter: This is a tomb, not a fortress!
Caspian: This is crazy. No one has ever taken his castle!
Peter: There’s always a first time.

Squirrel: We could collect nuts. [Reepicheep looks at him and raises an eyebrow]
Reepicheep: Yes... [Everyone looks at him; the squirrel looks happy, until Reepicheep speaks, gesturing his arms on the words throw and Telmarines] and throw them at the Telmarines. Shut up!

Reepicheep: Choose your last words carefully, Telmarine.
Caspian: ...You are a mouse.
Reepicheep: [sighs] I was hoping for something a little more original.

Lucy: Why didn't you jump in and save us, like last time?
Aslan: Things never happen the same way twice, dear one.

Peter: What is it?
Edmund: [staring upwards] Where do you suppose we are?
Peter: Where do you think?!
Edmund: Well, I don't remember any ruins in Narnia. [they all stare up at the ruins on the cliff]

Lucy: [wandering around the ruins] Wonder who lived here?
Susan: [she picks up an old chess piece made of gold] I think we did.
Edmund: Hey, that's mine - from my chess set!
Peter: Which chess set?
Edmund: Well, I didn't exactly have a solid gold chess set in Finchley, did I?

Lucy Pevensie: It's so still.
Trumpkin: They're trees. What do you expect?
Lucy Pevensie: They used to dance.

Caspian: I wish we had more time together.
Susan Pevensie: We never would have worked, anyway.
Caspian: Why not?
Susan Pevensie: Well, I am 1300 years older than you.

Lucy Pevensie: I wish you'd all stop trying to act like grown-ups. I didn't think I saw him, I did see him.
Trumpkin: I am a grown-up.

Peter Pevensie: Prince Caspian?
Prince Caspian: Yes. And who are you?
Susan Pevensie: Peter!
Prince Caspian: High King Peter?
Peter Pevensie: I believe you called.
Prince Caspian: Well, yes. But I thought you'd be... older.
Peter Pevensie: Well if you like, we can come back in a few years.
Prince Caspian: No! No, it's alright! You're just not exactly what I expected.
Edmund Pevensie: Neither are you...

Telmarine Soldier: You're a... mouse.
Reepicheep: [annoyed and bored] You people have NO imagination! [He attacks the Telmarine Soldier]

Edmund Pevensie: [looking down a cliff over the water] Is there a way down?
Trumpkin: Yes. Falling.

Prince Caspian: You could have called it off, there was still time.
Peter Pevensie: No, there wasn't, thanks to you. If you had kept to the plan those soldiers might be alive now.
Prince Caspian: And if you had just stayed here as I suggested, they definitely would be!
Peter Pevensie: You called us, remember?
Prince Caspian: My first mistake.
Peter Pevensie: No. Your first mistake was thinking you could lead these people.
Prince Caspian: HEY! I am not the one who abandoned Narnia.
Peter Pevensie: No, you invaded Narnia. You have no more right leading than Miraz does! You, him, your father! Narnia's better off without the lot of you!

Reepicheep: Pick up your sword.
Caspian: No, thank you.
Reepicheep: Pick it up! I won't fight an unarmed man.
Caspian: Which is why I might live longer if I refuse to cross swords with you, noble mouse.
Reepicheep: I said I wouldn't fight you. I didn't say I'd let you live!

Miraz: Now, Prince Ed--
Edmund: King. It's King Edmund, actually. Just "king" though... Peter's the High King. [pauses] I know, it's confusing.

Susan: I don't remember this way.
Peter: That's the problem with girls - you can't carry a map in your heads.
Lucy: That's because our heads have something in them.

Miraz: Maybe I was wrong, maybe you do have the makings of a Telmarine king after all.
Caspian: Ahh! [stabs sword into the ground] Not one like you. Keep your life, but I am giving the Narnians back their kingdom.

Trumpkin: [after being saved by Peter] Drop him?! That's the best you can come up with?
Susan: A simple "thank you" would suffice.
Trumpkin: They were doing fine drowning me without your help.
Peter: Maybe we should have let them!
Lucy: Why were they trying to kill you anyway?
Trumpkin: They're Telmarines. That's what they do.
Edmund: Telmarines? In Narnia?
Trumpkin: Where have you been for the last few hundred years?
Lucy: It's a bit of a long story, actually.
Trumpkin: Oh, you have got to be kidding me... You're it? You're the kings and queens of old?
Peter Pevensie: High King Peter. The Magnificent.
Susan Pevensie: You probably could have left off that last bit.
Trumpkin: Probably.

Caspian: What are you?
Trufflehunter: You know, it's funny that you would ask that. You think most people would know a badger when they see one.
Caspian: No, no I mean... You are Narnians. You are supposed to be extinct.
Nikabrik: Sorry to disappoint you.
Trufflehunter: Here you go, still hot.
Nikabrik: Since when did we open a boarding house for Telmarine soldiers?
Caspian: I'm not a soldier. I am Prince Caspian, the tenth.
Nikabrik: What are you doing here?
Caspian: Running away. My uncle has always wanted my throne. I suppose I have only lived this long because he did not have an heir of his own.
Trufflehunter: Well that changes things.
Nikabrik: Yeah. It means we don't have to kill you ourselves.
Caspian: You're right.
Trufflehunter: Where are you going?
Caspian: My uncle won't stop until I'm dead.
Trufflehunter: But you can't leave! You're meant to save us.
