The Court Jester (1955)
Fergus: I'm Fergus, the Ostler.
Hawkins: Who-whogus the Whatsler?
Fergus: Fergus, the Ostler. It is I, not Ravenhurst, who is your friend.
Hawkins: [ushering Fergus back to the window] Look, my good man, you pick your friends, and I shall pick mine. At the moment, I have a very important mission with the king. After all, I am the incomparable Giacomo, king of jesters and jester of kings.
[Griselda enters unnoticed]
Hawkins: I have entertained in all the courts of Europe and speak a ready wit in their every tongue.
[turns and runs into Griselda]
Hawkins: [without missing a beat] Now, who are you?
Griselda: I am Griselda.
Hawkins: Gri-who-lda?

Hawkins: I've got it! I've got it! The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right?
Griselda: Right. But there's been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace!
Hawkins: They *broke* the chalice from the palace?
Griselda: And replaced it with a flagon.
Hawkins: A flagon...?
Griselda: With the figure of a dragon.
Hawkins: Flagon with a dragon.
Griselda: Right.
Hawkins: But did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?
Griselda: No! The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!
Hawkins: The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.
Griselda: Just remember that.

Griselda: [Correcting Hawkins' recitation of the directions about the drinks] No! The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle...
Jean: ...the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true. Even I can say it!
Hawkins: Then YOU fight him!

Griselda: I bring you a message from the princess.

Hubert Hawkins: Me?
