Heartwarming / Kingdom of Heaven

  • Godfrey's response to the Hospitaller's question of whether he was sorry for his sins: "I am for all but one" (meaning Balian).
  • After conquering Jerusalem, Saladin walking through a church and coming across a golden crucifix, which had fallen to the ground during the long siege. He carefully picks it up and sets it back on the altar. Reports have it that cheers and applause followed this scene when shown in Middle Eastern theaters.
  • The first conversation that Balian has with King Baldwin, showing that despite being a leper the man is Wise Beyond Their Years and is fully aware of his mortality, yet is still committed to protecting the helpless and ensuring that he will be happy to stand before God when it is his time, fully convinced of the righteousness of his actions. Not to mention this little speech he gives.
    King Baldwin IV: [Motioning Balian to a chessboard] When I was sixteen, I won a great victory. I felt, in that moment, that I would live to be a hundred. Now I know I shall not see thirty. You see, none of us choose our end, really. A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but remember that even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "But I was told by others to do thus," or that "Virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.
