Excalibur (1981)
Perceval: I can't give up hope, Lancelot. It's all I have.

Arthur: [Arthur is dying] Perceval, take Excalibur. Find a pool of calm water. Throw the sword into it.
Perceval: No!
Arthur: Obey me, Perceval. Do it, and return.
Arthur: [Perceval returns after not throwing the sword in] When you cast it in, what did you see?
Perceval: I saw nothing but the wind on the water. My King, I couldn't do it! Excalibur cannot be lost! Other men...
Arthur: DO... as I command! One day, a King will come, and the Sword will rise... again.

Boy Mordred: You seek what Arthur wants? That thing they call the Grail?
Perceval: I do.
Boy Mordred: Then follow me.
[Mordred leads him to the tree where the decomposing bodies of some of the other quest knights are]
Boy Mordred: They were looking for it too. But they weren't good enough.

Grail Figure: What is the secret of the Grail? Who does it serve?
Perceval: You, my lord.
Grail Figure: Who am I?
Perceval: You are my lord and king. You are Arthur.
Grail Figure: Have you found the secret that I have lost?
Perceval: Yes. You and the land are one.

Perceval: [holding the Grail to Arthur's lips] You and the land are one. Drink.
Arthur: I am wasting away. I cannot die and I cannot live.
Perceval: Drink from the chalice. You will be reborn and the land with you.
Arthur: [drinks] Perceval... I didn't know how empty was my soul... until it was filled.

Perceval: Lancelot help us! Come back to us! Arthur needs you! Lancelot!


"Kaamelott: L'adoubement (#1.40)" (2005)
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: [Attending a ceremony to admit a new knight to the round table] What did you say this was called?
Lancelot, chevalier du Lac: Adoubement.
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: Huh. That's hard to remember. They could have come up with another word.
Lancelot, chevalier du Lac: [annoyed] What do you think it should be called?
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: I dunno. Chevalierisation?
[Lancelot glares at him]
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: What? It's already taken?

Arthur, roi de Bretagne: Perceval! If this doesn't interest you, there's no need to stay.
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: No, it interests me.
Arthur, roi de Bretagne: Well shut up then. What would you have said if they'd done the same during your adoubement?
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: My what?
Lancelot, chevalier du Lac: Adoubement.
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: That? I never had that.
Arthur, roi de Bretagne: What do you mean?
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: The Mass, the sword, all the rest. It wasn't done back in my day.

Arthur, roi de Bretagne: Look under G.
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: Gerceval?
Arthur, roi de Bretagne: Perceval de Galles.

Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: Hey, don't go to all this trouble just for me.
Arthur, roi de Bretagne: It's for me we have to go to all this trouble. If it gets out that there's a bunch of oafs who aren't even knights at the round table, by tomorrow I'll have half of Britain on my arse.

Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: Look under F.
Arthur, roi de Bretagne: F?
Perceval, chevalier du Pays de Galles: I dunno. You haven't looked under F, have you?


Black Knight (2001)
Percival: How dare you deflower the king's daughter.
Jamal: Believe me, someone got to that flower long before I did.

Jamal: [draws sword] Prepare to taste cold steel.
Percival: [pause] ... Behold!

Percival: [to Jamal] Does thou mock me?


"Merlin: The Dark Tower (#5.6)" (2012)
Sir Leon: [speaking of Gwen and Elyan's late father] I think he'd be proud.
Gwen: Particularly of Elyan.
Sir Elyan: Me?
Gwen: Not just because you're a knight, but because of the man you've become.
Sir Elyan: I don't think so.
Sir Percival: She's right.
Sir Gwaine: Absolutely. You're outstanding. Especially when it comes to trying to sweet talk the ladies, if nothing else.
Sir Elyan: Don't listen to him.
Sir Gwaine: No. Elyan loves only one woman.
Gwen: Who?
Sir Elyan: You!
Gwen: Tell me! I'm your sister.
Sir Gwaine: Did Arthur not say?
Gwen: Arthur never tells me anything.
Sir Elyan: But he told you who Gwaine's in love with.
Gwen: Himself.

[Leon and Percival share the same nightmare]
Sir Leon: [awaking in terror] The tower!
Merlin: It was a dream.
Sir Leon: Everything in its shadow was dead and... and the sound, it was like... like children screaming.
Sir Percival: And the rain that fell was like blood. I had the same dream. I was lost in a forest, and the trees had claws and... and I finally escaped it. There was a plain.
Sir Leon: Empty as far as the eye could see, except...
Sir Percival: ...rising into the sky was a black pillar of stone.
Sir Leon: A tower so dark it could swallow the sun.
Arthur: The dark tower. It's a place where every young knight's taught to dread, and rightly so. It's where many have met their end.
Merlin: I've never heard of it.
Arthur: With good reason. It's said that the mere mention of it can bring doom to any of those who hear it.


"Merlin: The Coming of Arthur: Part Two (#3.13)" (2010)
Arthur: Here! Come and join me.
[Merlin, Gwen, Gaius, Lancelot, Gwaine, Elyan, Leon, and Percival take seats around the round table along with him]
Arthur: This table belonged to the ancient kings of Camelot. A round table afforded no man more importance than any other. They believed in equality in all things. So, it seems fitting that we revive this tradition now. Without each of you, we would not be here. My father has languished in prison for too long. Tomorrow, I make my bid to rescue him. Are there any around this table who will join me?
[each of them stand and talk in turns]
Lancelot: You taught me the values of being a knight, the code by which a man should live his life. To fight with honour for justice, freedom, and all that's good. I believe in the world that you will build.
Elyan: Even though I was a commoner, a nobody, you were willing to lay down your life for me, Arthur. It is now my turn to repay you.
Sir Leon: I have fought alongside you many times. There is no one that I would rather die for.
Gwaine: [grins] I think we've no chance. But I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Percival: Your enemies are my enemies.
Gaius: If you need an old man.
[Arthur smiles briefly, tears flowing in his eyes]
Gwen: You know the answer.
[everyone has now stood up, except for Merlin, who grins where he is still sitting]
Arthur: [raises an eyebrow] Merlin?
Merlin: No, I don't really fancy it.
Arthur: You don't have a choice, Merlin.
Merlin: Okay.
[he stands with a smile, then nods seriously]


"Merlin: The Sword in the Stone: Part Two (#4.13)" (2011)
Sir Leon: No, Arthur. Is YOU the people love, and you they will lay down their lives for. I know that I would ride into the mouth of hell for you.
Sir Percival: And I.
Merlin: And I.
Arthur: To the mouth of hell it is.


Perceval (1978)
Perceval: By my faith, I won't hide it longer, Sire. My name is Perceval of Wales.
