Braveheart - Ok?
Near the beginning of the movie, at the party for the newlyweds, the English Lord comes riding and crashes the party, proclaiming "Prima Nocte" and demanding that the new bride join him for the evening. She pushes the blades away from her husband's throat, and then presses her face to his and whispers into his ear, "It'll be ok...everything will be ok..." You have to read her lips, but it's quite obvious that is what she is saying. The problem is, the work "OK" wasn't introduced into the English (American English) language until the late 1800's when a politician whose initials were O.K., was running for some political position. I can't recall what it was, but he made a hand sign with his index finger and thumb made into a circle, and used that sign (the OKAY sign we know use all the time) as a campaign ploy.

Technically, she shouldn't have been speaking English at all, but Gaelic (English wasn't used in Scotland and Ireland widespread until the mid 1800's). As such, the use of a "modern" English word shouldn't really be considered a slip up, IMO.

Actually, if you look carefully, then you will notice that Helen actually says "It's alright, everything will be alright".
