We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now here’s a small selection.
King: Tell me a tale of yourself, so that I might know thee.
Gawain: I have none to tell.
Queen: Yet. You have none to tell yet.
Gawain: I fear I’m not meant for greatness.
King: We all fear, but fear can be a gift.
Queen: Do not waste this.
King: Friends, brothers and sisters. Who can regale me and my Queen with some myth or tale?
Green Knight: O greatest of Kings, let one of your knights try to land a blow against me. Indulge me in this game.
Gawain: I will meet thee.
Green Knight: [holding his decapitated head in his hands] One year hence.
King: Another year nearly gone already. You must seek him out.
Gawain: Was it not just a game?
King: Perhaps, but it is not complete.

Gawain: Why do you stop me?
Fox: Your doom is at hand.
Scavenger: You rest your bones. I’ll finish your quest for you.
Lord: And what do you hope to gain in facing all of this?
Gawain: Honor. That is why a knight does what he does.
