Words can't express how disappointed I am that the IMDb site didn't include this exchange in the movie's Quotes section. Out of all the deaths in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, this one was the most satisfying for me, just to see the corrupt bishop get his comeuppance from Friar Tuck--a character formerly relegated to the frivolous "comic relief" role yet using this most appropriate moment to grow a pair and make a stand for righteousness at last. And the Judas Iscariot reference was pretty slick, too. ;-)

Friar Tuck: Gold. You sold your soul to Satan, Your Grace. You accused innocent men of witchcraft and sentenced them to die....

Bishop of Hereford: But brother friar, you would strike another man of the cloth?

Tuck: No, I wouldn't. In fact, I'll help you pack for your journey! You have to take a lot of gold to help you on your way.

*heaps more gold on the Bishop's load*

Tuck: You are a very rich man. And that, and that.

*heaps even more gold on as the Bishop strains under the weight*

Tuck: And here's thirty pieces of silver...to pay the Devil on your way to Hell!

*shove, fall, splat* :-D

And the ironic part is that he is a villian when his surname is Innocent...

That IS a hell of a name for an actor who plays villains to have (though it would be a bit more ironic if Mr. Innocent were a career criminal instead...).

I did notice the real name with an IMDb search; After "David Innocent" turned up no results, I searched for the movie title and found that his name was Harold Innocent too. He has also been dead since 1993, sadly, but I guess it happens to everyone sometime.... :-(

how much gold did Friar Tuck give Hereford to pay the Devil before he sent him out the window?

I hadn't really picked up on the thirty pieces of silver bit until now.
