Bayan: That's the only way you can ever sleep soundly, you know, when your enemy's sleep is eternal.

Bayan: You can refuse to go if you want to. The risk is great enough.
Walter of Gurnie: No. I'll go, my Lord.
Bayan: It's settled then.
[as Walter turns to go]
Bayan: Scholar? Maybe I'm a little sorry I thought of this journey for you, but be sure of this: if they kill you, I'll kill 10 of them for every hair on your head... I have a strange feeling I may not see you again... If that's true, I'll miss you, Scholar... I don't miss many men.
Walter of Gurnie: Well, for your sake, I'll try not to get killed.

Tristram Griffin: I was thinking about going with you.
Walter of Gurnie: To Cathay?
Tristram Griffin: Well, where's that?
Walter of Gurnie: Well, it's a long way from your forest.
Tristram Griffin: Well, maybe Sarah would like it there.
Walter of Gurnie: Now, don't talk too lightly about it, Tris,. If we should go to such a place, the chances are all you'll get out of it is that, in the end, you'll be hung by a Mongol instead of a Norman.
Tristram Griffin: Well, if it comes to that, I'd sooner give the pleasure to somebody I don't know than a Norman I hate.
Walter of Gurnie: A far land it is then. I guess this is the beginning.
