Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering silmite
held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine
providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your
king!
Dennis interrupting: Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin'
swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power
derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic
ceremony!

Dennis: Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just
because some watery tart threw a sword at you!
                           -----------------------
Dennis: Oh but if I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some
moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
                           -----------------------
Dennis: Help! Help! I'm being oppressed! Violence inherent in the system!
Violence inherent in the system!

Bedevere: ...and that, my liege, is how we know the Earth to be banana

King of Swamp Castle: When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone
said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same,
just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. And that
one sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over,
and then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what
you're going to get, Son, the strongest castle in all of England.

Brother Maynard: Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch,
saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to
tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the
lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast
cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then
thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the
number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither
shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is
right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be
reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine
foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
