Scene 1
[It was a overcast and windy day] [clop clop]
ARTHUR: Whoa there! [clop clop]
GUARD #1: Halt! Who goes there?
ARTHUR: It is I, Arthur, son of Uther Pendragon, from the castle of Camelot.
King of the Britons, defeator of the Saxons, sovereign of all England!
GUARD #1: Pull the other one!
ARTHUR: I am. And this my trusty servant Patsy. We have ridden the
length and breadth of the land in search of knights who will join me in my
court of Camelot. I must speak with your lord and master.
GUARD #1: What, ridden on a horse?
GUARD #1: You're using coconuts!
GUARD #1: You've got two empty halves of coconut and you're bangin' 'em
ARTHUR: So? We have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land,
through the kingdom of Mercea, through-
GUARD #1: Where'd you get the coconut?
ARTHUR: We found them.
GUARD #1: Found them? In Mercea? The coconut's tropical!
ARTHUR: What do you mean?
GUARD #1: Well, this is a temperate zone.
ARTHUR: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the
plumber may seek warmer climes in winter yet these are not strangers to our
GUARD #1: Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
ARTHUR: Not at all, they could be carried.
GUARD #1: What - a swallow carrying a coconut?
ARTHUR: It could grip it by the husk!
GUARD #1: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question
of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a 1 pound coconut.
ARTHUR: Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that
Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here.
GUARD #1: Listen, in order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow
needs to beat its wings 43 times every second, right?
ARTHUR: Please!
GUARD #1: Am I right?
ARTHUR: I'm not interested!
GUARD #2: It could be carried by an African swallow!
GUARD #1: Oh, yeah, an African swallow maybe, but not a European
swallow, that's my point.
GUARD #2: Oh, yeah, I agree with that...
ARTHUR: Will you ask your master if he wants to join my court at Camelot?!
GUARD #1: But then of course African swallows are not migratory.
GUARD #2: Oh, yeah...
GUARD #1: So they couldn't bring a coconut back anyway... [clop clop]
GUARD #2: Wait a minute - supposing two swallows carried it together?
GUARD #1: No, they'd have to have it on a line.
GUARD #2: Well, simple! They'd just use a standard creeper!
GUARD #1: What, held under the dorsal guiding feathers?
GUARD #2: Well, why not?

Scene 3

[clop clop]
ARTHUR: Old woman!
ARTHUR: Man, sorry. What knight live in that castle over there?
DENNIS: I'm thirty seven.
DENNIS: I'm thirty seven - I'm not old!
ARTHUR: Well, I can't just call you 'Man'.
DENNIS: Well, you could say 'Dennis'.
ARTHUR: Well, I didn't know you were called 'Dennis.'
DENNIS: Well, you didn't bother to find out, did you?
ARTHUR: I did say sorry about the 'old woman,' but from the behind
you looked -

DENNIS: What I object to is you automatically treat me like an inferior!
ARTHUR: Well, I AM king...
DENNIS: Oh king, eh, very nice. An' how'd you get that, eh? By exploitin'
the workers - by 'angin' on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates
the economic an' social differences in our society! If there's ever going
to be any progress -
WOMAN: Dennis, there's some lovely filth down here. Oh - how d'you do?
ARTHUR: How do you do, good lady. I am Arthur, King of the Britons. Who's
castle is that?
WOMAN: King of the who?
ARTHUR: The Britons.
WOMAN: Who are the Britons?
ARTHUR: Well, we all are. We're all Britons and I am your king.
WOMAN: I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous
DENNIS: You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship. A
self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes -
WOMAN: Oh there you go, bringing class into it again.
DENNIS: That's what it's all about if only people would -
ARTHUR: Please, please good people. I am in haste. Who lives in that
WOMAN: No one live there.
ARTHUR: Then who is your lord?
WOMAN: We don't have a lord.:

DENNIS: I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it
in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week.
DENNIS: But all the decision of that officer have to be ratified at a
special biweekly meeting.
ARTHUR: Yes, I see.
DENNIS: By a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: - but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more -
ARTHUR: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
WOMAN: Order, eh - who does he think he is?
ARTHUR: I am your king!
WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you.
ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings.
WOMAN: Well, 'ow did you become king then?
ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, [angels sing] her arm clad in the purest
shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water
signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur.
[singing stops] That is why I am your king!
DENNIS: Listen - strange women lying in ponds distributing 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.
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: Well you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just
'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: I mean, if I went around sayin' I was an empereror just
because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me they'd put me away!
ARTHUR: Shut up! Will you shut up! (Arthur throttles democratic Dennis)
DENNIS: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system.
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! HELP! HELP!
I'm being repressed!
ARTHUR: Bloody peasant!
DENNIS: Oh, what a give away. Did you hear that, did you here that, eh?
That's what I'm on about - did you see him repressing me, you saw it didn't

Scene 4

(Really bitchin' fight scene in which Black Knight stands victorious)
[arg] [ugh] [hah]
ARTHUR: You fight with the strength of many men, Sir knight. I am Arthur,
King of the Britons. [pause] I seek the finest and the bravest knights in
the land to join me in my Court of Camelot. [pause] You have proved yourself
worthy; will you join me? [pause] You make me sad. So be it. Come, Patsy.
BLACK KNIGHT: None shall pass.
BLACK KNIGHT: None shall pass.
ARTHUR: I have no quarrel with you, good Sir knight, but I must cross this
BLACK KNIGHT: Then you shall die.
ARTHUR: I command you as King of the Britons to stand aside!
BLACK KNIGHT: I move for no man.
ARTHUR: So be it! [hah] [parry thrust]
[ARTHUR chops the BLACK KNIGHT's left arm off - really neat blood spurting
ARTHUR: Now stand aside, worthy adversary.
BLACK KNIGHT: 'Tis but a scratch.
ARTHUR: A scratch? Your arm's off!
BLACK KNIGHT: No, it isn't.
ARTHUR: Well, what's that then?
BLACK KNIGHT: I've had worse.
ARTHUR: You liar!
BLACK KNIGHT: Come on you pansy! [hah] [parry thrust]
[ARTHUR chops the BLACK KNIGHT's right arm off - more really neat blood
spurting effects]
ARTHUR: Victory is mine! [kneeling] We thank thee Lord, that in thy merc-
[unnh - as the Black Knight kicks him]
BLACK KNIGHT: Come on then.
BLACK KNIGHT: Have at you!
ARTHUR: You are indeed brave, Sir knight, but the fight is mine.
BLACK KNIGHT: Oh, had enough, eh?
ARTHUR: Look, you stupid bastard, you've got no arms left.
BLACK KNIGHT: Yes I have.::p(
BLACK KNIGHT: Just a flesh wound. [bang]
ARTHUR: Look, stop that.
BLACK KNIGHT: Chicken! Chicken!
ARTHUR: Look, I'll have your leg. Right! [whop]
BLACK KNIGHT: Right, I'll do you for that!
ARTHUR: You'll what?
BLACK KNIGHT: Come 'ere!
ARTHUR: What are you going to do, bleed on me?
BLACK KNIGHT: I'm invincible!
ARTHUR: You're a loony.
BLACK KNIGHT: The Black Knight always triumphs! Have at you! Come on then.
[ARTHUR chops the BLACK KNIGHT's other leg off]
BLACK KNIGHT: All right; we'll call it a draw.
ARTHUR: Come, Patsy.
BLACK KNIGHT: Oh, oh, I see, running away then. You yellow bastards!
Come back here and take what's coming to you. I'll bite your legs off!

Scene 5

CROWD: A witch! A witch! A witch! We've got a witch! A witch!
VILLAGER #1: We have found a witch, might we burn her?
CROWD: Burn her! Burn!
BEDEMIR: How do you know she is a witch?
VILLAGER #2: She looks like one.
BEDEMIR: Bring her forward.
WITCH: I'm not a witch. I'm not a witch.
BEDEMIR: But you are dressed as one.
WITCH: They dressed me up like this.
CROWD: No, we didn't - no.
WITCH: And this isn't my nose, it's a false one.
VILLAGER #1: Well, we did do the nose.
BEDEMIR: The nose?
VILLAGER #1: And the hat - but she is a witch!
CROWD: Burn her! Witch! Witch! Burn her!
BEDEMIR: Did you dress her up like this?
CROWD: No, no... no ... yes. Yes, yes, a bit, a bit.
VILLAGER #1: She has got a wart.
BEDEMIR: What makes you think she is a witch?
VILLAGER #3: Well, she turned me into a newt.
BEDEMIR: A newt?
VILLAGER #3: I got better.
VILLAGER #2: Burn her anyway!
CROWD: Burn! Burn her!
BEDEMIR: Quiet, quiet. Quiet! There are ways of telling whether
she is a witch.
CROWD: Are there? What are they?
BEDEMIR: Tell me, what do you do with witches?
VILLAGER #2: Burn!
CROWD: Burn, burn them up!
BEDEMIR: And what do you burn apart from witches?
VILLAGER #1: More witches!
VILLAGER #2: Wood!
BEDEMIR: So, why do witches burn? [pause]
VILLAGER #3: B -... 'cause they're made of wood...?
CROWD: Oh yeah, yeah...
BEDEMIR: So, how do we tell whether she is made of wood?
VILLAGER #1: Build a bridge out of her.
BEDEMIR: Aah, but can you not also build bridges out of stone?
VILLAGER #2: Oh, yeah, yeah... right.
BEDEMIR: Does wood sink in water?
VILLAGER #1: No, no.
VILLAGER #2: It floats! It floats!
VILLAGER #1: Throw her into the pond!
CROWD: The pond!
BEDEMIR: What also floats in water?
VILLAGER #1: Bread!
VILLAGER #2: Apples!
VILLAGER #3: Very small rocks! (A fine example of scientific knowledge)
VILLAGER #1: Cider!
VILLAGER #2: Great gravy!
VILLAGER #1: Cherries!
VILLAGER #3: Churches - churches! (How would he know?)
VILLAGER #2: Lead - lead!
ARTHUR: (Dramatically) A duck.
CROWD: Oooh.::p( ::BEDEMIR: Exactly! So, logically...,
VILLAGER #1: If... she.. weighs the same as a duck, she's made of wood.
BEDEMIR: And therefore - ?
VILLAGER #1: A witch!
CROWD: A witch!
BEDEMIR: We shall use my larger scales! [yelling]
BEDEMIR: Right, remove the supports! [whop] [creak]
CROWD: A witch! A witch!
WITCH: It's a fair cop.
CROWD: Burn her! Burn! [yelling]
BEDEMIR: Who are you who are so wise in the ways of science?
ARTHUR: I am Arthur, King of the Britons.
BEDEMIR: My liege!
ARTHUR: Good Sir knight, will you come with me to Camelot, and join us at
the Round Table?
BEDEMIR: My liege! I would be honored.
ARTHUR: What is your name?
BEDEMIR: Bedemir, my leige.
ARTHUR: Then I dub you Sir Bedemir, Knight of the Round Table.

[Narrative Interlude]

NARRATOR: The wise Sir Bedemir was the first to join King Arthur's
knights, but other illustrious names were soon to follow: Sir Launcelot
the Brave; Sir Galahad the Pure; and Sir Robin the Not-quite-so-brave-
as-Sir-Launcelot who had nearly fought the Dragonn of Agnor,
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.

Scene 6

BEDEMIR: And that, my liege, is how we know the Earth to be banana-shaped.
ARTHUR: This new learning amazes me, Sir Bedemir. Explain again how
sheeps' bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes.
BEDEMIR: Oh, certainly, sir.
LAUNCELOT: Look, my liege!
ARTHUR: Camelot!:p(

::GALAHAD: Camelot!
PATSY: It's only a model.
ARTHUR: Shhh! Knights, I bid you welcome to your new home. Let us ride...
to Camelot.


We're knights of the round table
We dance when e'er we're able
We do routines and parlour scenes
With footwork impecce-Able.
We dine well here in Camelot - We eat ham and jam and spam a lot [dancing]
We're knights of the Round Table
Our shows are for-mid-able
Oh many times we're given rhymes - That are quite unsing-able
We not so fat in Camelot - We sing from the diaphragm a lot
Oh we're tough and able
Quite indefatigable
Between our quests we [something] And impersonate Clark Gable
It's a bit too loud in Camelot
I have to push the pram a lot.
ARTHUR: Well, on second thought, let's not go to Camelot - 'tis a silly place.

Scene 7

GOD: Arthur! Arthur, King of the Britons! Oh, don't grovel! If there's one
thing I can't stand, it's people groveling.
ARTHUR: Sorry -
GOD: And don't apologize. Every time I try to talk to someone it's,
"sorry this" and "forgive me that" and "I'm not worthy". What are you
doing now!?
ARTHUR: I'm averting my eyes, oh Lord.
GOD: Well, don't. It's like those miserable Psalms - they're so depressing.
Now knock it off!
ARTHUR: Yes, Lord.
GOD: Right! Arthur, King of the Britons - your Knights of the Round Table
shall have a task to make them an example in these dark times.:p(
::ARTHUR: Good idea, oh Lord!
GOD: 'Course it's a good idea! Behold! [Holy Music] Arthur, this is
the Holy Grail. Look well, Arthur, for it is your sacred task to seek this
Grail. That is your purpose, Arthur - the Quest for the Holy Grail.
ARTHUR: A blessing!
LAUNCELOT: A blessing from the Lord!
GALAHAD: God be praised!

Scene 8

[clop clop]
ARTHUR: Halt! Hallo! Hallo!
GUARD: 'Allo! Who is zis?
ARTHUR: It is King Arthur, and these are the Knights of the Round Table.
Who's castle is this?
GUARD: This is the castle of [something] Louis de Whopper
ARTHUR: Go and tell your master that we have been charged by God with a
sacred quest. If he will give us food and shelter for the night he can
join us in our quest for the Holy Grail.
GUARD: Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he'll be very keen... Uh, he's
already got one, you see?
GALAHAD: He says they've already got one!
ARTHUR: Are you sure he's got one?
GUARD: Oh, yes, it's very nice-a {Aside to the other French, "I told him
we already got one. (Assorted giggling)}
ARTHUR: Well, um, can we come up and have a look?
GUARD: Of course not! You are English types-a!
ARTHUR: Well, what are you then?
GUARD: I'm French! Why do think I have this outrageous accent, you silly king!
GALAHAD: What are you doing in England?
GUARD: Mind your own business!
ARTHUR: If you will not show us the Grail, we shall take your castle by force!
GUARD: You don't frighten us, English pig-dogs! Go and boil your bottoms,
sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-calledArthur-king, you
and all your silly English kaniggets. (knight pronounced weirdly)
GALAHAD: What a strange person.
ARTHUR: Now look here, my good man!
GUARD: I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food t:

::rough whopper! I fart in your general direction! Y
ou mother was a hamster
and your father smelt of elderberries!
GALAHAD: Is there someone else up there we could talk to?
GUARD: No, now go away or I shall taunt you a second time-a!
ARTHUR: Now, this is your last chance. I've been more than reasonable.
GUARD: (Fetch-a da mush.) wha?
GUARD: (Fetch-a da mush!) [moo]
ARTHUR: If you do not agree to my commands, then I shall - [twong] [mooooooo]
Jesus Christ! Right! Charge!
ALL: Charge! [mayhem]
GUARD: Ah, this one is for your mother! [twong]
ALL: Run away!
GUARD: Thpbpbpbt!
LAUNCELOT: Fiends! I'll tear them apart!
ARTHUR: No no, no.
BEDEMIR: Sir! I have a plan, sir.
[later] [chop]
[rumble rumble squeak]
MUTTERING GUARDS: ce labon a bunny do wha? un codoo? a present! oh, un codoo.
oui oui hurry! wha-? Let's go! [rumble rumble squeak]
ARTHUR: What happens now?
BEDEMIR: Well, now, uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I wait until nightfall,
and then leap out of the rabbit, taking the French by surprise - not only
by surprise, but totally unarmed!
ARTHUR: Who leaps out?
BEDEMIR: Uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I. Uh, leap out of the rabbit, uh and
ARTHUR: Oh....
BEDEMIR: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden badger - [twong]
ALL: Run away! Run away! Run away! Run away! [splat]
GUARDS: Oh, haw haw haw.

Scene 9

Pictures for Schools, take 8.
NARRATOR: Defeat at the castle seems to have utterly disheartened King Arthur.
The ferocity of the French taunting took him completely by surprise, and Arthur
became convinced that a new strategy was required if the quest for the Holy
Grail were to be brought to a successful conclusion. Arthur, having consulted:
::his closest knights, decided that they should sep
arate, and search for the Grail
individually. Now, this is what they did- [tromp tromp] [slash]
WOMAN: Greg!
(The afore-pleaded for Greg falls to the ground with his throat nicely cut)

Scene 10

NARRATOR: The Tale of Sir Robin.... So each of the knights went their
separate ways. Sir Robin rode north, through the dark forest of Ewing,
accompanied by his favorite minstrels.
MINSTREL (singing): Bravely bold Sir Robin, rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die, o Brave Sir Robin.
He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin!
He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp,
Or to have his eyes gouged out, and his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split, and his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin!
His head smashed in and his heart cut out,
And his liver removed and his bowels unplugged,
And his nostrils ripped and his bottom burned off,
And his feet-
ROBIN: That's - that's, uh, that's enough music for now, lads. Looks like
there's dirty work afoot.
DENNIS: Anarcho-syndicalism is a way of preserving freedom.
WOMAN: Oh, Dennis, forget about freedom. Now I've dropped my mud.
ALL HEADS: Halt! Who art thou?
MINSTREL (singing): He is brave Sir Robin, brave Sir Robin, who -
ROBIN: Shut up! Um, n-n-nobody really, I'm j-just um, just passing through.
ALL HEADS: What do you want?
MINSTREL (singing): To fight, and -
ROBIN: Shut up! Um, oo, n-nothing, nothing really - I, uh, j-j-ust to um,
just to p-pass through good Sir knight.
ALL HEADS: I'm afraid not!
ROBIN: Ah. W-well, actually I am a Knight of the Round Table.
ALL HEADS: You're a Knight of the Round Table?
ROBIN: I am.
LEFT HEAD: In that case I shall have to kill you.
RIGHT HEAD: Oh, I don't think so.:#:p(::MIDDLE HEAD: We
ll, what do I think?
LEFT HEAD: I think kill him.
RIGHT HEAD: Well let's be nice to him.
MIDDLE HEAD: Oh shut up.
LEFT HEAD: Perhaps -
LEFT HEAD: Oh quick get the sword out I want to cut his head off!
RIGHT HEAD: Oh, cut your own head off!
MIDDLE HEAD: Yes, do us all a favor!
RIGHT HEAD: Yapping on all the time.
MIDDLE HEAD: You're lucky, you're not next to him.
LEFT HEAD: What do you mean?
MIDDLE HEAD: You snore.
LEFT HEAD: Oh I don't - anyway, you've got bad breath.
MIDDLE HEAD: Well its only because you don't brush my teeth.
RIGHT HEAD: Oh stop bitching and let's go have tea.
LEFT HEAD: All right all right all right we'll kill him first and then have
tea and biscuits.
RIGHT HEAD: Oh, but not biscuits.
LEFT HEAD: All right all right not biscuits, but lets kill him anyway.
LEFT HEAD: He buggered off.
RIGHT HEAD: So he has, he's scarpered.
MINSTREL (singing): Brave Sir Robin ran away
MINSTREL (singing): He bravely ran away away
ROBIN: I didn't!
MINSTREL (singing): When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely
turned his tail and fled
MINSTREL (singing): Yes Brave Sir Robin turned about
ROBIN: I didn't!
MINSTREL (singing): And gallantly he chickened out. Bravely taking to his
ROBIN: I never did!
MINSTREL (singing): He beat a very brave retreat
ROBIN: Oh, lie!
MINSTREL (singing): Bravest of the brave Sir Robin:&Pp(:
:ROBIN: I never!

Scene 11

NARRATOR: The Tale of Sir Galahad... [boom crash] [angels singing]
[pound pound pound]
GALAHAD: Open the door! Open the door! [pound pound pound] In the name
of King Arthur, open the door! [squeak thump] [squeak boom]
ALL: Hello!

ZOOT: Welcome gentle Sir knight, welcome to the Castle Anthrax.
GALAHAD: The Castle Anthrax?
ZOOT: Yes... oh, it's not a very good name is it? Oh! but we are nice and
we shall attend to your every, every need!
GALAHAD: You are the keepers of the Holy Grail?
ZOOT: The what?
GALAHAD: The Grail -- it is here?
ZOOT: Oh, but you are tired, and you must rest awhile. Midget! Crepper!
MIDGET and CREPPER: Yes, oh Zoot!
ZOOT: Prepare a bed for our guest.
MIDGET and CREPPER: Oh thank you thank you thank you-
ZOOT: Away away vilatesses[?]! The beds here are warm and soft - and very,
very big.
GALAHAD: Well, look, I-I-uh-
ZOOT: What is your name, handsome knight?
GALAHAD: Sir Galahad... the Chaste.
ZOOT: Mine is Zoot... just Zoot. Oh, but come!
GALAHAD: Look, please! In God's name, show me the Grail!
ZOOT: Oh, you have suffered much! You are delirious!
GALAHAD: L-look, I have seen it! It is here, in the-
ZOOT: Sir Galahad! You would not be so ungallant as to refuse our
GALAHAD: Well, I-I-uh-
ZOOT: Oh, I am afraid our life must seem very dull and quiet compared to yours.
We are but eight score young blondes and brunettes, all between sixteen and
nineteen and a half, cut off in this castle with no one to protect us! Oh, it
is a lonely life - bathing, dressing, undressing, making exciting underwear....
We are just not used to handsome knights. Nay, nay, come, come, you may lie
here. Oh, but you are wounded!
GALAHAD: No, no - i-it's nothing!
ZOOT: Oh, but you must see the doctors immediately! No, no, please, lie down.:
(:p(:: [clap clap]
PIGLET: Ah. What seems to be the trouble?
GALAHAD: They're doctors?!
ZOOT: Uh, they've had a basic medical training, yes.
GALAHAD: B-but--ZOOT: Oh, come come, you must try to rest! Doctor Piglet,
Doctor Winston, practice your art.
PIGLET: Try to relax.
GALAHAD: Are you sure that's necessary?
PIGLET: We must examine you.
GALAHAD: There's nothing wrong with that!
PIGLET: Please - we are doctors.
GALAHAD: Get off the bed! I am sworn to chastity!
PIGLET: Back to your bed!
GALAHAD: Torment me no longer! I have seen the Grail!
PIGLET: There's no grail here.
GALAHAD: I have seen it, I have seen it. I have seen -
GIRLS: Hello.
Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello.
DINGO: No, I am Zoot's identical twin sister, Dingo.
GALAHAD: Oh, well, excuse me, I -
DINGO: Where are you going?
GALAHAD: I seek the Grail! I have seen it, here in this castle!
DINGO: No! Oh, no! Bad, bad Zoot!
GALAHAD: What is it?DINGO: Oh, wicked, bad, naughty Zoot! She has been
setting alight to our beacon, which, I just remembered, is grail-shaped.
It's not the first time we've had this problem.
GALAHAD: It's not the real Grail?

and she must pay the penalty - and here in Castle Anthrax, we have but one
punishment for setting alight the grail-shaped beacon. You must tie her down
on a bed and spank her!
GIRLS: A spanking! A spanking!
DINGO: You must spank her well. And after you have spanked her, you may deal
with her as you like. And then, spank me.
MANY VOLUPTUOUS HALF-NUDE GIRLS: And spank me. And me. And me.

GIRLS: A spanking! A spanking!:+pp(::DINGO: And after
the spanking, the oral sex.
GIRLS: Oral sex! Oral sex!
GALAHAD: Well, I could stay a BIT longer.
LAUNCELOT: Sir Galahad!
GALAHAD: Oh, hello.
LAUNCELOT: You're in great peril!
GALAHAD: No I'm not.
ZOOT: No he isn't.
LAUNCELOT: Silence, foul temptress!
GALAHAD: Now look, it's not important.
LAUNCELOT: Quick! Come on and we'll cover your escape!
GALAHAD: Look, I'm fine!
GALAHAD: Now look, I can tackle this lot single-handed!
DINGO: Yes! Let him tackle us single-handed!
GIRLS: Yes! Tackle us single-handed!
LAUNCELOT: No, Sir Galahad, come on!
GALAHAD: No, really, honestly, I can go back and handle this lot easily!
DINGO: Oh, yes, he can handle us easily.
GIRLS: Yes, yes!
GALAHAD: Wait! I can defeat them! There's only a hundred and fifty
of them!
DINGO: Yes, yes, he'll beat us easily, we haven't a chance.
GIRLS: Yes, yes. [boom]
DINGO: Oh... sh*t. [outside]
LAUNCELOT: We were in the nick of time, you were in great peril.
GALAHAD: I don't think I was.
LAUNCELOT: Yes you were, you were in terrible peril.
GALAHAD: Look, let me go back in there and face the peril.
LAUNCELOT: No, it's too perilous.
GALAHAD: Look, [something] as much peril as I can.
LAUNCELOT: No, we've got to find the Holy Grail. Come on!
GALAHAD: Well, let me have just a little bit of peril?
LAUNCELOT: No, it's unhealthy.
GALAHAD: Bet you're gay!
LAUNCELOT: No, I'm not.:.p(::[Narrative Interlude]
NARRATOR: Sir Launcelot had saved Sir Galahad from almost certain
temptation, but they were still no nearer the Grail. Meanwhile, King Arthur
and Sir Bedemir, not more than a swallow's flight away, had discovered
something. Oh, that's an unladen swallow's flight, obviously. I mean,
they were more than two laden swallow's flights away - four, really, if they
hadn't a cord of line between them. I mean, if the birds were walking and
dragging -
CROWD: Get on with it!
NARRATOR: Oh, anyway, on to scene twenty-four, which is a smashing
scene with some lovely acting, in which Arthur discovers a vital clue, in which
there aren't any swallows, although I think you can hear a starling -oolp!

Scene 12

OLD MAN: Ah, hee he he ha!
ARTHUR: And this enchanter of whom you speak, he has seen the grail?
OLD MAN: Ha ha he he he he!
ARTHUR: Where does he live? Old man, where does he live?
OLD MAN: He knows of a cave, a cave which no man has entered.
ARTHUR: And the Grail... The Grail is there?
OLD MAN: Very much danger, for beyond the cave lies the Gorge of Eternal
Peril, which no man has ever crossed.
ARTHUR: But the Grail! Where is the Grail!?
OLD MAN: Seek you the Bridge of Death.
ARTHUR: The Bridge of Death, which leads to the Grail?
OLD MAN: Hee hee ha ha!

HEAD KNIGHT: We are the Knights Who Say... Nee!

HEAD KNIGHT: The same!
BEDEMIR: Who are they?
HEAD KNIGHT: We are the keepers of the sacred words: Nee, Pen, and Nee-wom!

HEAD KNIGHT: The Knights Who Say Nee demand a sacrifice!:0:p(

HEAD KNIGHT: Nee! Nee! Nee! Nee!
ARTHUR and PARTY: Oh, ow!
HEAD KNIGHT: We shall say 'nee' again to you if you do not appease us.
ARTHUR: Well, what is it you want?
HEAD KNIGHT: We want... a shrubbery! [dramatic chord]
ARTHUR: A what?
ARTHUR and PARTY: Oh, ow!
ARTHUR: Please, please! No more! We shall find a shrubbery.
HEAD KNIGHT: You must return here with a shrubbery or else you will never pass
through this wood alive!
ARTHUR: O Knights of Nee, you are just and fair, and we will return with a
HEAD KNIGHT: One that looks nice.
ARTHUR: Of course.
HEAD KNIGHT: And not too expensive.

NARRATOR: The Tale of Sir Launcelot...
FATHER: One day, lad, all this will be yours!
ERBERT: What, the curtains?
FATHER: No, not the curtains, lad. All that you can see! Stretched out over
the hills and valleys of this land! This'll be your kingdom, lad!
HERBERT: But, Mother -
FATHER: Father, I'm Father.
HERBERT: But Father, I don't want any of that.
FATHER: Listen, lad. I've built this kingdom up from nothing. When I started
here, all there was was swamp. All the kings said I was daft to build a castle
in a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em. It sank into the
swamp. So, I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a
third one. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the
fourth one stayed up. An' that's what your gonna get, lad - the strongest
castle in these islands.
HERBERT: But I don't want any of that - I'd rather -
FATHER: Rather what?!:3 p(::HERBERT: I'd rather... jus
t... [music] ...sing!
FATHER: Stop that, stop that! You're not going to do a song while I'm here.
Now listen lad, in twenty minutes you're getting married to a girl whose father
owns the biggest tracts of open land in Britain.
HERBERT: But I don't want land.
FATHER: Listen, Alex, -
HERBERT: Herbert.
FATHER: Herbert. We live in a bloody swamp. We need all the land we can get.
HERBERT: But I don't like her.
FATHER: Don't like her?! What's wrong with her? She's beautiful, she's rich,
she's got huge... tracts of land.
HERBERT: I know, but I want the girl that I marry to have... a certain...
special... [music] ...something...
FATHER: Cut that out, cut that out. Look, you're marryin' Princess Looky, so
you'd better get used to the idea. [smack] Guards! Make sure the Prince
doesn't leave this room until I come and get 'im.
GUARD #1: Not to leave the room even if you come and get him.
GUARD #2: Hic!

GUARD #1: Until you come and get him, we're not to enter the room.

GUARD #1: The Prince?
FATHER: Yes, make sure 'e doesn't leave.

bit daft, me havin' to guard him when he's a guard.

GUARD #1: Oh, quite clear, no problems.
FATHER: Right. [starts to leave] Where are you going?

ARTHUR: That's it, that's it, you've got it.
ROGER: Are you saying 'nee' to that old woman?
ARTHUR: Um, yes.
ROGER: Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can 'nee' at will
to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Even
those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress
at this period in history.
ARTHUR: Did you say 'shrubberies'?
ROGER: Yes, shrubberies are my trade - I am a shrubber. My name is Roger
the Shrubber. I arrange, design, and sell shrubberies.

beside this shrubbery, only slightly higher so you get a two-level effect with
a little path running down the middle.

mightiest tree in the forest... with... a herring! [dramatic chord]

Nee cannot hear.

NARRATOR: In the frozen land of Nador they were forced to eat Robin's
minstrels. And there was much rejoicing.

carved in mystic runes upon the very living rock, the last words of Ulfin
Bedweer of Regett [boom] proclaim the last resting place of the most Holy Grail.
ARTHUR: Where could we find this cave, O Tim?
TIM: Follow! But! follow only if ye be men of valor, for the entrance to
this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel that no man yet has fought
with it and lived! Bones of four fifty men lie strewn about its lair. So,
brave knights, if you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further,
for death awaits you all with nasty big pointy teeth.

ARTHUR: Oh, shut up. Well, does it say anything else?
MAYNARD: No. Just, 'Aaaaaaah'.
LAUNCELOT: Aauuggghhh.
???: Aaauggh.
BEDEMIR: You don't suppose he meant the Camauuuugh?
???: Where's that?
BEDEMIR: France, I think.
LAUNCELOT: Isn't there a Saint Aauuuves in Cornwall?
ARTHUR: No, that's Saint Ives.
LAUNCELOT: Oh, yes. Saint Iiiives.
SEVERAL: Iiiiives.
BEDEMIR: Oooohoohohooo!
LAUNCELOT: No, no, Aaaaaaah, at the back of the throat. Aaaaaaah.
BEDEMIR: No, no, no, oooooooh, as in surprise and alarm.
LAUNCELOT: Oh, you mean sort of a aaaagh!
BEDEMIR: Yes, but I - Aaaaagh!
???: Oooh!
???: Oh, no! [roar]
MAYNARD: It's the legendary Black Beast of Aaaaaaaah!
(Brother Maynard gets messily and graphically devoured by the aforementioned:
Q:p( ::beast)
ARTHUR: Run away!
ALL: Run away! Run away! [roar]
NARRATOR: As the horrendous Black Beast lunged forward, escape for Arthur and
his knights seemed hopeless. When, suddenly, the animator suffered a fatal
heart attack. [ulk] The cartoon peril was no more. The Quest for Holy Grail
could continue.

Scene 23

ARTHUR: There it is! The Bridge of Death!
ROBIN: Oh, great.
ARTHUR: There's the old man from Scene 24!
BEDEMIR: What is he doing here?
ARTHUR: He is the keeper of the Bridge of Death. He asks each traveller five
questions -
LAUNCELOT: Three questions.
ARTHUR: Three questions. He who answers the five questions -
LAUNCELOT: 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.
???: Who's going to answer the questions?
ARTHUR: Sir Robin!
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 -
ARTHUR: No, no, hang on hang on hang on! Just answer the five questions -
LAUNCELOT: Three questions.
ARTHUR: Three questions as best you can. And we shall watch... and pray.
LAUNCELOT: I understand, my liege.
ARTHUR: Good luck, brave Sir Launcelot. God be with you.
KEEPER: Stop! Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these
questions three, 'ere the other side he see.
LAUNCELOT: Ask me the questions, bridge-keeper. I'm not afraid.
KEEPER: What is your name?:Tpp(!!::LAUNCELOT: My name is

KEEPER: What is your quest?
LAUNCELOT: To seek the Holy Grail.
KEEPER: What is your favorite color?
KEEPER: Right. Off you go.
LAUNCELOT: Oh, thank you. Thank you very much.
ROBIN: Oh that's easy!
KEEPER: Stop! Who approaches the Bridge of Death must answer me these
questions three, 'ere the other side he see.
ROBIN: Ask me the questions, bridge-keeper. I'm not afraid.
KEEPER: What is your name?
ROBIN: Sir Robin of Camelot.
KEEPER: What is your quest?
ROBIN: To seek the Holy Grail.
KEEPER: What is the capital of Assyria?

KEEPER: What is your quest?
GALAHAD: I seek the Holy Grail.
KEEPER: What is your favorite color?

KEEPER: Heh heh. Stop! What is your name?
ARTHUR: It is Arthur, King of the Britons.
KEEPER: What is your quest?
ARTHUR: To seek the Holy Grail
.KEEPER: What is the approximate air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
ARTHUR: Eh? What do you mean? An African or European swallow?
KEEPER: What? I don't know that! Auuuuuuuugh! (The keeper gets catapulted
over the edge - that'll teach him to mess with a king)
BEDEMIR: How do know so much about swallows?
ARTHUR: Well, you have to know these things when you're a king you know.
(Modest, isn't he?)


Scene 24
:Wp(""::ARTHUR: Launcelot! Launcelot! Launcelot!
BEDEMIR: Launcelot! Launcelot!
ARTHUR: Launcelot! Launcelot!
BEDEMIR: Launcelot! Launcelot! [angels singing]
(A boat seemingly driven by magic [and probably a few hidden and silenced
remote-controlled outboard motors] appears and takes them to an island on which
seems to reside...)
ARTHUR: The Castle Aggh. Our quest is at an end! God be praised! Almighty
God, we thank Thee that Thou hast brought us safely to thy most Holy -
[twong baaaa] Jesus Christ!
GUARD: 'Allo, daffy English kaniggets and Monsieur Arthur-King, who is afraid
of a duck, you know! So, we French fellows out-wit you a second time!
ARTHUR: How dare you profane this place with your presence!? I command you,
in the name of the Knights of Camelot, to open the doors of this sacred castle,
to which God himself has guided us!
GUARD: How you English say, I one more time-a unclog my nose in your direction,
sons of a window-dresser! So, you think you could out-clever us French folk
with your silly knees-bent running about advancing behavior! I wave my private
parts at your aunties, you heaving lot of second hand electric donkey bottom
ARTHUR: In the name of the Lord, we demand entrance to this sacred castle!
GUARD: No chance, English bedwetting types. I burst my pimples at you and
call your door opening request a silly thing. You tiny-brained wipers of
other people's bottoms!
ARTHUR: If you do not open this door, we shall take this castle by force!
[splat](The French rain refuse on his most royalness) In the name of God and:X
the glory of our - [splat] (ditto) Right! That settles it!
GUARD: Yes, this time and don't come back any more or we fire arrows at the
tops of your heads and make castanets out of your testicles already! Ha ha!
ARTHUR: Walk away. Just ignore them.
GUARD: No, remain ??? illegitimate faced buggerfuls! And, if you think you
got nasty taunting this time, you ain't heard nothing yet! Daffy English
kaniggets! Thpbpbpbt!
ARTHUR: We shall attack at once!
BEDEMIR: Yes, my liege!
ARTHUR: Stand by for attack!
(The rest of this is mostly visual, without too much dialogue, but I suppose I
can describe it. From out of nowhere, a blooming army appears, bristling with
spears, swords, shields, knights, lances, flags, and other deadly war utensils.
Arthur sounds the charge, and in the usual Python Ending Manner (it also being:
Y:p(##::one of the more cheaper ways to end it - probably
ran out of money from Tim's
big blowout), the King and Bedemir get arrested for the murder of that gentleman
(Greg I think his name was) way back in scene 9 {don't bother looking to see if
I got it right or not - I just checked})

And so ends...
