    Minstrel's song #2
    Brave Sir Robin ran away,
    Bravely ran away, away.
    When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled.
    Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
    And gallantly, he chickened out. Bravely taking to his feet,
    He beat a very brave retreat,
    Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin.

    VILLAGER #1:
    We have found a witch. May we burn her?
    CROWD:
    Burn her! Burn! Burn her! Burn her!
    BEDEVERE:
    How do you know she is a witch?
    VILLAGER #2:
    She looks like one.
    CROWD:
    Right! Yeah! Yeah!
    BEDEVERE:
    Bring her forward.
    WITCH:
    I'm not a witch. I'm not a witch.
    BEDEVERE:
    Uh, but you are dressed as one
    WITCH:
    They dressed me up like this.
    CROWD:
    Augh, we didn't! We didn't...
    WITCH:
    And this isn't my nose. It's a false one.
    BEDEVERE:
    Well?
    VILLAGER #1:
    Well, we did do the nose.
    BEDEVERE:
    The nose?
    VILLAGER #1:
    And the hat, but she is a witch!
    VILLAGER #2:
    Yeah!
    CROWD:
    We burn her! Right! Yeaaah! Yeaah!
    BEDEVERE:
    Did you dress her up like this?
    VILLAGER #1:
    No!
    VILLAGER #2 and 3:
    No. No.
    VILLAGER #2:
    No.
    VILLAGER #1:

    VILLAGERS #1 and #2:
    A bit.
    VILLAGER #3:
    A bit.
    VILLAGER #1:
    She has got a wart.
    RANDOM:
    [cough]
    BEDEVERE:
    What makes you think she is a witch?
    VILLAGER #3:
    Well, she turned me into a newt.
    BEDEVERE:
    A newt?
    VILLAGER #3:
    I got better.
    VILLAGER #2:
    Burn her anyway!
    VILLAGER #1:
    Burn!
    CROWD:
    Burn her! Burn! Burn her!...
    BEDEVERE:
    Quiet! Quiet! Quiet! Quiet! There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.
    VILLAGER #1:
    Are there?
    VILLAGER #2:
    Ah?
    VILLAGER #1:
    What are they?
    CROWD:
    Tell us! Tell us!...
    BEDEVERE:

    VILLAGER #2:
    Burn!
    VILLAGER #1:

    BEDEVERE:
    And what do you burn apart from witches?
    VILLAGER #1:
    More witches!
    VILLAGER #3:
    Shh!
    VILLAGER #2:
    Wood!
    BEDEVERE:
    So, why do witches burn?
    [pause]
    VILLAGER #3:
    B--... 'cause they're made of... wood?
    BEDEVERE:
    Good! Heh heh.
    CROWD:
    Oh, yeah. Oh.
    BEDEVERE:
    So, how do we tell whether she is made of wood?
    VILLAGER #1:
    Build a bridge out of her.
    BEDEVERE:
    Ah, but can you not also make bridges out of stone?
    VILLAGER #1:
    Oh, yeah.
    RANDOM:
    Oh, yeah. True. Uhh...
    BEDEVERE:
    Does wood sink in water?
    VILLAGER #1:
    No. No.
    VILLAGER #2:
    No, it floats! It floats!
    VILLAGER #1:
    Throw her into the pond!
    CROWD:
    The pond! Throw her into the pond!
    BEDEVERE:
    What also floats in water?
    VILLAGER #1:
    Bread!
    VILLAGER #2:
    Apples!
    VILLAGER #3:
    Uh, very small rocks!
    VILLAGER #1:

    VILLAGER #2:
    Mud!
    VILLAGER #3:
    Uh, churches! Churches!
    VILLAGER #2:
    Lead! Lead!
    ARTHUR:
    A duck!
    CROWD:
    Oooh.
    BEDEVERE:
    Exactly. So, logically...
    VILLAGER #1:
    If... she... weighs... the same as a duck,... she's made of wood.
    BEDEVERE:
    And therefore?
    VILLAGER #2:
    A witch!
    VILLAGER #1:
    A witch!
    CROWD:
    A witch! A witch!...
    VILLAGER #4:
    Here is a duck. Use this duck.
    [quack quack quack]
    BEDEVERE:
    Very good. We shall use my largest scales.
    CROWD:
    Ohh! Ohh! Burn the witch! Burn the witch! Burn her! Burn her! Burn her! Burn her! Burn her! Burn her! Burn her! Ahh! Ahh...
    BEDEVERE:
    Right. Remove the supports!
    [whop]
    [clunk]
    [creak]
    CROWD:
    A witch! A witch! A witch!
    WITCH:
    It's a fair cop.
    VILLAGER #3:
    Burn her!
    CROWD:
    Burn her! Burn her! Burn her! Burn! Burn!...
    BEDEVERE:
    Who are you who are so wise in the ways of science?
    ARTHUR:
    I am Arthur, King of the Britons.
    BEDEVERE:
    My liege!
    ARTHUR:
    Good Sir Knight, will you come with me to Camelot and join us at the Round Table?
    BEDEVERE:
    My liege! I would be honored.
    ARTHUR:
    What is your name?
    BEDEVERE:
    'Bedevere', my liege.
    ARTHUR:
    Then I dub you 'Sir Bedevere, Knight of the Round Table'.

    NARRATOR:
    The wise Sir Bedevere was the first to join King Arthur's knights, but other illustrious names were soon to follow: Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Gallahad the Pure, and Sir Robin the- not- quite- so- brave- as- Sir- Lancelot, who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor, who had nearly stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol, and who had personally wet himself at the Battle of Badon Hill, and the aptly named Sir Not- appearing- in- this- film. Together they formed a band whose names and deeds were to be retold throughout the centuries: the Knights of the Round Table.

    GALAHAD:
    There it is!
    ARTHUR:
    The Bridge of Death!
    ROBIN:
    Oh, great.
    ARTHUR:
    Look! There's the old man from scene twenty-four!
    BEDEVERE:
    What is he doing here?
    ARTHUR:
    He is the keeper of the Bridge of Death. He asks each traveller five questions--
    GALAHAD:
    Three questions.
    ARTHUR:
    Three questions. He who answers the five questions--
    GALAHAD:
    Three questions.
    ARTHUR:
    Three questions may cross in safety.
    ROBIN:
    What if you get a question wrong?
    ARTHUR:
    Then you are cast into the Gorge of Eternal Peril.
    ROBIN:
    Oh, I won't go.
    GALAHAD:
    Who's going to answer the questions?
    ARTHUR:
    Sir Robin!
    ROBIN:
    Yes?
    ARTHUR:
    Brave Sir Robin, you go.
    ROBIN:
    Hey! I've got a great idea. Why doesn't Launcelot go?
    LAUNCELOT:
    Yes. Let me go, my liege. I will take him single-handed. I shall make a feint to the north-east

    Oh, for the life of Brian!!!!!

    Everyone knows the Holy Grail is is the ruins of a temple protected by a knight who is immortal. If you don't believe me, just ask Indiana Jones.

    I blow my nose at you so called Arthur King, you and your silly English Knnnnnnniiggets

    and of course

    "Lord Bless this thy hand grenade that with it thou mayest blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy"

    Think I heard that at a particularly rancourous business meeting once

    somehow I knew this thread was going to be headed this way

    Thank you!! I really needed the laugh tonight.

    Does anyone else remember the killer bunny rabbit? That part was my favorite.... Or was it the part with the Knight who kept claiming he only had a flesh wound?
