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.
Ebert: You and I, we understand each other. That is why we are allies, and will remain so. Ragnar: Do you think you're a good man? Ebert: Yes, I think so. Are you a good man? Ragnar: Yes, I think so. Are you corrupt? Ebert: Oh yes. Are you? Ragnar: Um hmm.
