Excalibur (1981) Poster


Paul Geoffrey: Perceval



  • 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.

    Kay : [Upon seeing Arthur cured]  Arthur.

    Arthur : [Speaking to Kay]  Ready my knights for battle. They shall ride with their King once more. I have lived through others far too long. Lancelot bore my honor and Guenevere my guilt. Mordred bore my sins. My Knight have fought my causes. And now my brother, I shall be... King!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Perceval : I can't give up hope, Lancelot. It's all I have.

  • 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.

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