King Arthur (2004)
Lancelot: You look frightened. There's a large number of lonely men out there.
Guinevere: Don't worry, I won't let them rape you.

Lancelot, Arthur, Bors, Gawain, Tristan, Dagonet: [the knights line up on the hill near the fort and charge towards the Saxons] For Arthur!

Arthur: Knights... Brothers and arms... Your courage has been testet beyond all limits.
Bors: Yes
Arthur: But I must ask you now for one further trial.
Bors: Drink.
Arthur: We must leave on a final mission for Rome before our freedom can be granted. Above the wall, far north, there is a Roman family in need of rescue. They are trapped by Saxons. Our orders is to secure their safety.
Bors: Let the Romans take care of their own.
Gawain: Above the wall is Woad territory.
Galahad: Our duty to Rome, if it ever was a duty, is done. Our pact with Rome is done.
Bors: Every knight here has laid his life on the line for you. For you. And instead of freedom you want more blood? Our blood? You think more of Roman blood than you do of ours?
Arthur: Bors! These are our orders. We leave at first light, and when we return your freedom will be waiting for you. A freedom we can embrace with honour.
Bors: I'm a free man! I will choose my own fate!
Tristan: Yeah, yeah, we're all going to die someday. If it's a death from a Saxons hand that frightens you, stay home.
Galahad: Listen, if you're so eager to die, you can die right now! I've got something to live for!
Lancelot: Enough. Enough!
Dagonet: The Romans have broken their word. We have the word of Arthur. That is good enough. I'll prepare.

Lancelot: Arthur! This is not Rome's fight. It is not your fight. All these long years we've been together, the trials we've faced, the blood we've shed... what was it all for if not for the reward of freedom! And now when we are so close, when it's finally within our grasp... Look at me! Does it all count for nothing?
Arthur: You ask me that? You who know me the best of all?
Lancelot: Then do not do this. Only certain death awaits you here. Arthur, I beg you! For our friendship's sake, I beg you!
Arthur: You be my friend now and do not dissuade me. Seize the freedom you have earned and live it for the both of us. I cannot follow you, Lancelot. I know now that all the blood I have shed, all the lives I have taken have led me to this moment.

[while Marius and his men are preparing to attack Dagonet, an arrow flies out of nowhere and kills Marius; his men look and see Guinevere aiming a bow at them]
Lancelot: Your hands seem to be better.

[Lancelot finds Arthur praying in the stable]
Lancelot: Why do you always talk to God and not to me? Pray to whomever you pray that we don't cross the Saxons.
Arthur: My faith is what protects me, Lancelot. Why do you challenge this?
Lancelot: I don't like anything that puts a man on his knees.
Arthur: No man fears to kneel before the God he trusts. Without faith, without belief in something, what are we?

Lancelot: To try and get past the Woads in the north is insanity.
Arthur: Them, we've fought before.
Lancelot: Not north of the Wall! How many Saxons? Hmm? How many? Tell me. Do you believe in this mission?
Arthur: These people need our help. It is out duty to bring...
Lancelot: I don't care about your charge. And I don't give a damn about Romans, Britain, or this island. If you desire to spend eternity in this place, Arthur, then so be it. But suicide cannot be chosen for another!
Arthur: And yet you choose death for this family!
Lancelot: No, I choose life! And freedom! For myself and the men!

Guinevere: This is heaven for me.
Lancelot: I don't believe in Heaven, I've been living in this Hell. But if you represent what Heaven is, then take me there.
[it starts raining and snowing]
Lancelot: Rain and snow at once... a bad omen.

[last lines]
Lancelot: [voiceover] And as for the knights who gave their lives, their deaths were cause for neither mourning nor sadness. For they will live forever, their names and deeds handed down from father to son, mother to daughter, in the legends of King Arthur and his knights.

[first lines]
Lancelot: [voiceover] By 300 AD, the Roman Empire extended from Arabia to Britain. But they wanted more. More land. More peoples loyal and subservient to Rome. But no people so important as the powerful Sarmatians to the east. Thousands died on that field. And when the smoke cleared on the fourth day, the only Sarmatian soldiers left alive were members of the decimated but legendary cavalry. The Romans, impressed by their bravery and horsemanship, spared their lives. In exchange, these warriors were incorporated into the Roman military. Better they had died that day.
Young Lancelot: Father. They are here.
Lancelot: For the second part of the bargain they struck indebted not only themselves...
Lancelot's Father: The day has come.
Lancelot: ...but also their sons, and their sons, and so on, to serve the empire as knights. I was such a son.

Bors: I like the little bastards. They mean something to me. Especially Number Three! He's a good fighter!
Lancelot: That's because he's mine.

Gawain: I can't wait to leave this island. If it's not raining, it's snowing, and if it's not snowing, it's foggy.
Lancelot: And that's summer.

Lancelot: When are you going to leave Bors and come home with me?
Vanora: My lover is watching you.
[Bors is looking at his baby, then looks at Lancelot, who has a smirk on his face]
Bors: You look nothing like him!

[Lancelot's plans for the future]
Lancelot: Well, if this woman of Gawain's is as beautiful as he claims, I expect to be spending a lot of time at Gawain's house. His wife will welcome the company.
Gawain: I see. And what will I be doing?
Lancelot: Wondering at your good fortune that all your children look like me.
Gawain: Is that before or after I hit you with my axe?

Lancelot: Hey Bors. You intend to take Vanora and all your little bastards back home?
Bors: Oh I'm trying to avoid that decision... by getting killed.

Bors: Dagonet, she wants to get married and give the children names.
Tristan: Women! The children already have names, don't they?
Bors: Just Gilly. It's too much trouble so we gave the rest of them numbers.
Lancelot: That's interesting. I thought you couldn't count.

Lancelot: For two hundred years knights had fought and died for a land not their own, but on that day on Badon Hill all who fought put their lifes in service of a greater cause: freedom.

Lancelot: I will die in battle; that I am certain of. But I hope to die in a battle of my choosing. But if it is to be this one, do not bury me in our sad little cemetery. Burn me, and cast my ashes to a strong eastern wind.

Bors: Well, now that we're free men, I'm gonna drink 'tll I can't piss straight.
Gawain: You do that every night.
Bors: I never could piss straight. Too much of myself to handle down there...
[looks at the Knights]
Bors: Well, it's a problem! No really, it is. It's a problem. It's like...
Bors, Gawain, Lancelot, Tristan, Galahad, Dagonet: ...a baby's arm holding an apple.

Camelot (1967)
Lancelot Du Lac: Dap, you are older than I. You know this Earth better than I. I only fell upon it a few hours ago.
Dap: What are you talking about?
Lancelot Du Lac: Guinevere!

Lancelot Du Lac: If the king grants you clemency, you shall be banished. If not, you hang.
King Arthur: Clemency is granted.

Lancelot Du Lac: Ginny, I - I love you. God forgive me, but I do.
Guinevere: Then God forgive us both, Lance.
King Arthur: [King Arthur runs into the room] Ginny, Ginny! Oh, what a glorious day!

Lancelot Du Lac: The next time you traffic with me, remember... you challenge the right hand of King Arthur!
King Arthur: I *am* King Arthur!
Lancelot Du Lac: What? You... are the king?
King Arthur: Almost the *late* king...

King Arthur: We must arrange for your knighthood.
Lancelot Du Lac: No, sire! Invest me because of deeds, not words! Give me an order!
King Arthur: Now?
Lancelot Du Lac: This moment! Is there some wrong I can right, some peril I can face, some quest I can undertake?
King Arthur: Well... actually... there's not much going on today. The Queen and some of her court have gone a-maying.
Lancelot Du Lac: Gone... a-maying?
King Arthur: Well, it's a sort of... um... picnic? They pick flowers and chase young...
Lancelot Du Lac: Picnic?
King Arthur: It's a custom we have here. This is England, you know. And this is the season for gathering flowers.
Lancelot Du Lac: Knights? Gathering FLOWERS?
King Arthur: Well, SOMEONE has to do it!

Lancelot Du Lac: My strength, from purity.
King Arthur: Well, that's a unique recipe.
Dap: He is a unique man, your majesty.

King Arthur: I have stumbled on my future. I-I-I've done - the right thing!
Lancelot Du Lac: Did you ever doubt it, your majesty?
King Arthur: Oh, of course. Of course. Only fools never doubt.

King Pellinore: Excuse a, ah - me. But do you not have any, ah, activities? Any, ah, hobbies? Any, ah, chambering de coucher?
Lancelot Du Lac: No, Pellinore.
King Pellinore: [to King Arthur] There, you see. You see. Now, why can't he be like the other chaps instead of like himself? Why can't he come home in the evening and hang up his shield and do something that he can be ashamed of! Hmmm? He sure is French.

Lancelot Du Lac: I know, I know what I should do. Leave and never come back. Today. This minute. But to leave so abruptly, would seem a confession. No. Better in a week or two or a month. How can I go, Ginny? Look at you.

Guinevere: I want you to go, Lance.
Lancelot Du Lac: Ginny, Ginny.
Guinevere: No, I do. I don't worry about the future, we have none. But, if anything happened to the past, any more shame and any more guilt, could make a ruin of it. The past is all I have. The past is all I have.

First Knight (1995)
Arthur: God uses people like you, Lancelot. Because your heart is open. You hold nothing back. You give all of yourself.
Lancelot: If you knew me better, you would not say such things.
Arthur: Oh, hey, I take the good with the bad, together. I can't love people in slices.

Lancelot: You must not care whether you live or die.

Lancelot: Do you know how to win a sword fight?
John: How?
Lancelot: Be the only one with a sword!

Lancelot: I dare not kiss so lovely a lady. I have but one heart to lose.

Guinevere: If there is any honor in you, promise me never to do that again.
Lancelot: I don't know about honor. But I promise you, I won't kiss you again till you ask me to.

Lancelot: I've never believed in anything before. But I do believe in Camelot, and I would serve it best by leaving.

King Arthur: I trusted you, loved you, and you betrayed me!
Lancelot: I never meant to hurt you, my lord.
King Arthur: You leave me nothing! Nothing!

Arthur, Lancelot: Brother to brother, yours in life and death.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
Sir Lancelot: [Sir Galahad the Chaste is being seduced by an entire castle full of young women] We were in the nick of time. You were in great peril.
Sir Galahad: I don't think I was.
Sir Lancelot: Yes, you were. You were in terrible peril.
Sir Galahad: Look, let me go back in there and face the peril.
Sir Lancelot: No, it's too perilous.
Sir Galahad: Look, it's my duty as a knight to sample as much peril as I can.
Sir Lancelot: No, we've got to find the Holy Grail. Come on.
Sir Galahad: Oh, let me have just a little bit of peril?
Sir Lancelot: No. It's unhealthy.
Sir Galahad: I bet you're gay.
Sir Lancelot: Am not.

Sir Lancelot: Look, my liege!
[trumpets play a fanfare as the camera cuts briefly to the sight of a majestic castle]
King Arthur: [in awe] Camelot!
Sir Galahad: [in awe] Camelot!
Sir Lancelot: [in awe] Camelot!
Patsy: [derisively] It's only a model!
King Arthur: Shh!

Bridgekeeper: Stop. Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see.

King Arthur: To seek the Holy Grail.
Bridgekeeper: What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

[he is thrown over]
Bridgekeeper: Auuuuuuuugh.
Sir Bedevere: How do know so much about swallows?
King Arthur: Well, you have to know these things when you're a king, you know.

[Holding the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch]
King Arthur: How does it... um... how does it work?
Sir Lancelot: I know not, my liege.
King Arthur: Consult the Book of Armaments.
Brother Maynard: Armaments, chapter two, verses nine through twenty-one.
Cleric: [reading] And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs, and sloths, and carp, and anchovies, and orangutans, and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats, and large chu...
Brother Maynard: Skip a bit, Brother...
Cleric: And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.
Brother Maynard: Amen.
All: Amen.
King Arthur: Right. One... two... five!
Galahad: Three, sir.
King Arthur: Three!

King of Swamp Castle: You only killed the bride's father, you know.
Sir Lancelot: Well, I didn't mean to.
King of Swamp Castle: Didn't mean to? You put your sword right through his head.
Sir Lancelot: Oh dear... is he all right?

Sir Lancelot: [Bursts into the Prince's room and kneels before him after killing the guards] Oh, fair one, behold, I am you humble servant Sir Launcelot. I have come to take
[looks up and realizes that he is kneeling before an effeminate Prince, not a Princess]
Sir Lancelot: Oh, I'm terribly sorry!
Prince Herbert: You got my note!
Sir Lancelot: Uh, well, I got a note.
Prince Herbert: You've come to rescue me! I knew someone would! I knew that somewhere out there, there must be someone who
[Music swells]
King of Swamp Castle: Stop that! Stop it! Stop it!
[Music stops]
King of Swamp Castle: Who are you?
Prince Herbert: I'm your son!
King of Swamp Castle: No, not you!
Sir Lancelot: I am Sir Launcelot, sir.
Prince Herbert: He's come to rescue me, father!
Sir Lancelot: Well, let's not jump to conclusions.
King of Swamp Castle: Did you kill all those guards?
Sir Lancelot: Um... oh, yes! Sorry.
King of Swamp Castle: They cost fifty pounds each!
Sir Lancelot: Well, the thing is, I thought your son was a lady.
King of Swamp Castle: Well, I can understand that.

King Arthur: [about the inscription on the rock] What does it say, Brother Maynard?
Brother Maynard: It reads, "Here may be found the last words of Joseph of Aramathia. He who is valiant and pure of spirit may find the holy grail in the Castle of Aaauuuggghhh... "
King Arthur: What?
Brother Maynard: "The Castle of Aaaauuuggghhhh"
Sir Bedevere: What is that?
Brother Maynard: He must have died while carving it.
King Arthur: Oh come on!
Brother Maynard: Well, that's what it says.
King Arthur: Look, if he was dying, he wouldn't have bothered to carve 'Aaaauuuggghhhh'. He'd just say it.
Sir Galahad: Maybe he was dictating it.
King Arthur: Oh shut up!
Sir Robin: Well does it say anything else?
Brother Maynard: No, just "Aaaaauuuugggghhh".
[knights making groaning sounds]
Sir Bedevere: Do you think he could have mean, 'Camaaaauuuuggghhhh'?
Sir Galahad: Where's that?
Sir Bedevere: France, I think.
Sir Lancelot: Isn't there a Saint "Aaaaavvvveeeesss" in Cornwall?
King Arthur: No that's Saint "Ives".
Sir Lancelot: Oh, yes. "Iiiiiivvvveeessss"!
[All knights saying, "Iiiiiivvvveeessss"]
Sir Bedevere: Whooooouuuuaaa!
Sir Lancelot: No no no, it's "Aaaaauuuugggghhhh" from the back of the throat.
Sir Bedevere: No I mean, "Whoooouuuuaaa!" as in surprise and alarm.
Sir Lancelot: Oh, you mean like, "AAAHH!"

"Once Upon a Time: Lady of the Lake (#2.3)" (2012)
Snow White: What kind of general hides behind a mask? Who are you really, Leviathan?
Lancelot: "Leviathan"? That's what they're calling me?
[he takes off his helmet]
Lancelot: Name's Lancelot.
Snow White: Lancelot? Of the Round Table?
Lancelot: Not anymore.

Lancelot: Leaving is unwise. The Enchanted Forest is not as you remember it. The ogres have returned.
Emma Swan: Ogres? Like, as in "Fee-fi-fo-fum"?
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Those would be giants.

Lancelot: Take my bravest warrior with you. Allow Mulan to defend you.
Emma Swan: We can defend ourselves.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Deal. Thank you, Lancelot, for always looking out for me.

Lancelot: [performing Snow's and Charming's wedding] In my kingdom, there is legend of a cup. It has the power to grant eternal life. And so may the love between you always be strong, true and eternal.

Lancelot: So - what's your child gonna be?
Snow White: A girl.

"The Mists of Avalon" (2001)
Gwenhwyfar: I dreamt of you in Glastonbury. You... you opened a curtain into Avalon, and lifted me in.
Lancelot: It wasn't a dream. I was there, with Morgaine. She lifted you in. But I asked her to do it.
Gwenhwyfar: So you felt it too.
Lancelot: But I am sworn to Arthur.
Gwenhwyfar: As am I.
Lancelot: So we have nothing to confess.
Gwenhwyfar: But I have sinned with you in my thoughts.
Lancelot: Thoughts, are not deeds.
Gwenhwyfar: But the Bishop says, to think, is to do.
Lancelot: My thoughts don't answer to the Bishop. If they did, I would burn in Hell a thousand years everytime I see you walk past!

Lancelot: The King himself asked me into his bed, with the Queen.
Morgaine: All *three* of you?

Lancelot: Would it not be a comfort, just for a time, to believe that we create our own Heavens, and our own Hells?

[saying goodbye to Guenivere]
Lancelot: I pray that there is a heaven. And that when I die, you would be an angel in it, so we can be together at last.

Excalibur (1981)
Arthur: Move aside! This is the king's road - and the knights you joined arms against were his very own.
Lancelot: I await the king himself. His knights are in need of training.
Arthur: I am King. And this
[draws the sword]
Arthur: , is Excalibur, sword of kings from the dawn of time. Who are you? What do you seek?
Lancelot: I am Lancelot of the Lake, from across the sea. And I have yet to find a king worthy of my sword.
Arthur: That is a wild boast. You lack a knight's humility!
Lancelot: Not a boast, sir. But a curse. For I have never met my match in joust or duel.
Arthur: Move aside!
Lancelot: I will not. You must retreat, or prove your worth in the test of arms under the eyes of God.
Arthur: Then may He give me the strength to unhorse you. And send you with one blow, back across the sea.
Lancelot: Then come across, sir.

[Arthur and Lancelot are fighting at their first encounter]
Lancelot: Your rage has unbalanced you. You, sir, would fight to the death, against a knight who is not your enemy. Over a stretch of road you could easily ride around.
Arthur: So be it. To the death!

Lancelot: [Lancelot unhorses Arthur, then approaches him still on horseback with his lance held out] Yield sir, I have the advantage.
Arthur: [in a fit of absolute rage] I will not! Fight me from your horse or on foot, but fight me, your avoidance mocks me!
Lancelot: I sought only not to harm you.
[knocks Arthur to the ground]

Arthur: Thanks be to God you're alive.
Lancelot: I, the best Knight in the world bested! This is a great day! For my search is over, my King. Make me your champion.
Arthur: But your life and lands are far from here.
Lancelot: I gave up my castle and my lands. This is my domain. Within this metal skin. And I pledge all that I still own. Muscle, bone, blood and the heart that pumps it.
Arthur: And a great heart it is. Sir Lancelot, you will be my champion.

"King Arthur and the Knights of Justice: Tone's Triumph (#2.13)" (1994)
Sir Tone: Hey, I'm with ya, Arthur. But those puppies take time to build.
Arthur King: Then get to work, buddy. Build 'em and we'll roll to Morgana's castle and knock her and the Warlords out of the game for keeps.
Sir Tone: Hey, you got it, partner.
Queen Morgana: "Puppies"?
Lord Viper: Sir Tone called Arthur his, "partner". Do they now share Camelot's throne as joint kings?

Sir Tone: Morgana, queen of the dark. Queen of my heart.

Sir Tone: If Sir Tone builds that catapult for Morgana, all Camelot will be in jeopardy. Yet none more than Sir Tone. Once she has learned how to build the device, she will have no further use for him.

The Adventures of Sir Galahad (1949)
Sir Lancelot: [to Arthur] Your 'traitor,' young Galahad, is fighting your battle quite shrewdly, Sire.
Sir Kay: He's fighting for his own kin.

Sir Galahad: Arthur's sword - the true Excalibur - will be at the Ram's Head Inn this noon, but I'll need help to recover it.
Sir Lancelot: No doubt you will, but you've come to the wrong place. Who here will believe you?
Sir Galahad: You will.

Sir Lancelot: I can get you safely beyond the walls. We'll use the secret passageway.
Sir Galahad: Is it guarded?
Sir Lancelot: Certainly - by me!

"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: You're a knight. At last.
Lancelot: [snorts] But for how long?
Merlin: Who knows.
Lancelot: What are you planning? And don't even think about lying. I know you too well.
Merlin: It's too difficult to explain.
Lancelot: You can tell me.
Merlin: Morgana has the Cup of Life. If I can find it, and empty it of the blood within, then the army will be destroyed, and Morgana will be powerless.
Lancelot: Aren't you forgetting something? It's guarded. By an immortal army.
Merlin: Aren't you forgetting something? I have magic.
Lancelot: Doesn't make you immortal.
Merlin: No.
Lancelot: You know, Merlin, you're the one Arthur should knight. You're the bravest of us all, and he doesn't even know.

Ubit drakona (1989)
Lancelot: I started to envy the slaves. They know everything in advance... They have solid convictions. Maybe, because they have no choice. As for a knight... A knight is always at the crossroads.

The Dragon: [Lancelot sees children running after a dragon-like kite. The kite is pulled by the reincarnated Dragon, and Dragon is facing him and poses a silent question] So... passer-by, now everything starts again?
The Dragon: [Silence, then the Dragon speaks aloud] Maybe, not now... There are children, after all.
Lancelot: [looking over the scene] No. Now.
The Dragon: [smiling to the children] Well then... Now it will start... The most interesting part.
[pause, then shouting playfully to the children]
The Dragon: GET READY!...

Night at the Museum 3 (2014)
Sir Lancelot: Sir Lancelot, at your service.
Teddy Roosevelt: Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States of America.
Sir Lancelot: I have no idea what that means.

[from trailer]
Sir Lancelot: You always put the monkey in charge?
Larry Daley: Oh, he's not in charge, we're just following him.
Sir Lancelot: That's what being in charge means.

"The Adventures of Sir Lancelot: The Lesser Breed (#1.17)" (1957)
King Arthur: Yes, yes, Merlin, but the question is - have you seen a sea monster?
Merlin: Milord, in a word, no.
King Arthur: Nor have I, and yet this man has come to us with a fear that, to him and his neighbors, is very real. Lancelot...
Sir Lancelot du Lac: Milord?
King Arthur: Go to this village, find out the cause of the people's fear... and remove it.

Sir Lancelot du Lac: Take your hands off of me!
Horg: Ha-ha-ha! This one thinks it is something! How dare you talk to Horg like that. You are nothing but a slave. You may thanks your gods - if you have any - that for the rest of your life you'll have the privilege of serving Vikings!

"The Adventures of Sir Lancelot: The Ugly Duckling (#1.25)" (1957)
Sir Lancelot du Lac: Hello, Merlin. What's got you up?
Merlin: Usually I find the noise of women's screams and shattering glass quite restful, but today for some reason it takes me adversely.
Sybil: I'm sorry, Uncle Merlin, there's been another threatening note!
Merlin: Well, at least we are being well-supplied with reading matter.

[King Arthur, Sir Lancelot and Sybil join a party already in progress]
King Arthur: I think I see a young man approaching - several young men. Do you think we are in danger, Lancelot?
Sir Lancelot du Lac: Put your trust in Sybil, my lord. She'll break their hearts faster than you or I could draw a sword.

"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?
