Clive Swift: Ector
[the nobles are arguing over Arthur's drawing of the sword]
Uryenes : Lord Leondegrance! Join us against the boy!
Leondegrance : I saw what I saw! The boy drew the sword. If a boy has been chosen, a boy shall be King!
Uryenes : NO, I challenge that!
Sir Ector : The sword has been drawn!
Uryenes : [to Leondegrance] Are you with us, or against us?
Leondegrance : Against you!
Arthur : Rise, Father, please. I was your son before I became your king; if I am King.
Sir Ector : You are king, Arthur; the more so because you are not my son, and I am not your father.
Arthur : Not my father? Then Kay is not my brother?
Sir Ector : Merlin the magician brought you to me when you were newly born, and bade me raise you as my own. At first, I did so because I feared Merlin, but later because I loved you.
Arthur : Who is my true father?
Sir Ector : Only Merlin can tell you that.
Arthur : And who is Merlin?
Merlin : [enters suddenly from the forest] I... am the Merlin.
Arthur : Whose son am I?
Merlin : You are the son of Uther and Igrayne. You are King Arthur!
Sir Ector : I remember my first joust. It looks far worse than it feels!
