I do not think she will die; she wants to live. She has a lot to live for. But if she hears you weeping and lamenting, she will choose to die. Be strong, be a man; coax her back from Valhalla. And make it worth her while, for she is already at the gates.

Rollo

Floki: This is your fault Ragnar. Torstein has died fighting for a hill he did not want to own. For something which meant nothing to him. He has died a pointless death. How many more of us must die for your Christians? Or have you, in your heart, already renounced our Gods and turned to the Christ God? Is that what your friend Athelstan has persuaded you to do? Here we are, under an English sky burying our dead. Those we have sacrificed for Jesus Christ.
Ragnar: We're all fated to die on a certain day, yes? But it is our own choice to do as we please until that day comes. I did not force Torstein, or any of you to come for that matter. You all chose to be here. My heart is as heavy for Torstein as anyone's, but I am sure that I will bump into him again soon. And in the meantime Floki, shut your face.

Tell me now, if you dare, that I do not deserve to be King of Wessex.

King Ecbert

Lagertha: Is this really a bath? It is very big.
Ecbert: So, who will join me?
Lagertha: [giggles]
Ecbert: Let us talk about the Romans. Most of what they built here now lies in ruins, but there is another place. A great city which the Romans built, and it still stands to this day. It is a city called Paris, in a land called Frankia. I visited there with the Emperor Charlemagne.
Athelstan: I once visited Paris myself. It is set upon an island in the middle of a great river called the Seine. It has high walls and ramparts all around it for many miles. I remember when I saw it for the first time, it was like a dream. As if it were not real; a vision.
Lagertha: How far is this city?

This is not about you Floki. It's about our children and their children. It is about our people's future. And I do not want there to be endless conflict between us and the Christians.

Ragnar

But do not think I offer nothing in return; I tell stories. Stories about my own travels. Stories about the Gods or both. As they say, I sing for my supper.

Harbard

What sensible man would not be afraid of a farmer who made himself a king?

Kalf

Stones are much easier to wear than earth. May I?

King Ecbert

Judith: Forgive me Father, for I have sinned.
Athelstan: In what ways have you sinned my child?
Judith: I have sinned in thought, but not in deed.
Athelstan: Then your sins are not so great as they might be.
Judith: They are still great.
Athelstan: What are these thoughts you had?
Judith: I have dreamed of lying naked beside a man who is not my husband.
Athelstan: And did you just, lie, beside him or?
Judith: We made love and I enjoyed it very much.
Athelstan: You've certainly sinned.
Judith: Yes.
Athelstan: Who? Who is this man you lay with?
Judith: It was you, Athelstan.

This gift is worth more to me than a necklace of precious stones. I thank you with all my heart.

Lagertha

Athelstan: He confesses he has had to remove several Saxon farmers from their lands.
Lagertha: Then ask him if they will not be hostile to us, and if so, will he guarantee the safety of our own farms and communities.
Athelstan: He will personally guarantee our safety and security.
Lagertha: I thank the king from the bottom of my heart. It was always Ragnar's dream to find a land to farm for our young folks, and to live peacefully with others. Now, it is my dream also.

Ragnar: Why do you hate your uncle so much?
Kwenthrith: Do you think that my older brother was the only member of my family who raped me when I was a child? It was my uncle who first brought him to me. Since I was six years old he abused me. He violated my body and my soul.

Vikings Quotes

Ragnar: What do you see?
Bjorn: Power, the power of a king.
Ragnar: Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst and corrupts the best. I never asked for power. Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up.
