I love them and they answer me with pain and torment. Be it sin or not sin, they betray me in their hearts and that's far sin enough. I can feel it in their eyes, I can feel it when they speak, and they must pay for it and be punished. I shall not be wounded and not return it in kind! I'm through with feeble hoping! I demand a man's vengeance! [Calming down] Proposition: I'm a king, not a man. And a civilized king. Could it possibly be civilized to destroy what I love? Could it possibly be civilized to love myself above all? What of their pain and their torment? Did they ask for this calamity? Can passion be selected?


Merlyn! Merlyn, make me a hawk. Let me fly away from here!

[singing] Ask ev'ry person if he's heard the story;
And tell it strong and clear if he has not:
That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory
Called Camelot.
Camelot! Camelot!

[to Mordred] Far more seasoned rascals than you have polished their souls, I advise you, get out the wax. Better to be rubbed clean than rubbed out.

Just when I reach the golden age of eligibility and wooability. Is my fate determined by love and courtship? Oh, no. [Bitterly] Clause one: fix the border; Clause two: establish trade; Clause three: deliver me; Clause four: stop the war; five, six: pick up sticks. How cruel! How unjust! Am I never to know the joys of maidenhood? The conventional, ordinary, garden variety joys of maidenhood?

Must we talk about Mordred? This is the first time in a month that he's not coming to dinner and not having him makes it seem like a party!

C'est moi!

I am irritating. I always will be. All fanatics are bores, Pellinore, and I'm a fanatic. Even when I was a child I irritated the other children. I wanted to play their games, but I knew I could not. Even then I was filled with a sense of divine purpose. I'm not saying I enjoy it. All my life I've locked the world out. And, you know, when you lock the world out, you're locked in.

Pellinore: Forgive the interruption. Anyone here seen a beast with the head of a serpent, the body of a boar and the tail of a lion, baying like forty hounds?

Arthur: But even the thought, "I'm not thinking a thought" is thinking, isn't it?
Merlyn: Yes, and thinking is the sort of thing you should get into the habit of doing as often as possible.

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

Arthur: But for what purpose? Might isn't always right, Jenny.
Guinevere: Nonsense, dear, of course it is. To be right and lose couldn't possibly be right.

Lancelot: 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: Guenevere!

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

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