Edward: What a pair we make, hmm? Both trying to hide who we are. Both unable to do so. Your men love you. If I knew nothing else about you, that would be enough. But you also tilt when you should withdraw. And that is knightly too. Release him. He may appear to be of humble origins. But my personal historians have discovered that he descends from an ancient royal line. This is my word. And as such is beyond contestation. Now, if I may repay the kindness you once showed me. Take a knee. By the power vested in me by my father, King Edward and by all the wittnesses here, I dub thee Sir William. Arise, Sir William. Can you joust? There's a tournament to finish.
