FATHER: Stop that! Stop that! Stop it! Stop it! Who are you?

LANCELOT: Well, let's not jump to conclusions.

FATHER: Did you kill all those guards?

LANCELOT: Uh... Oh, yes. Sorry.

FATHER: They cost fifty pounds each!

LANCELOT: Well, I'm awfully sorry. Um, I really can explain everything.

HERBERT: Don't be afraid of him, Sir Lancelot. I've got a rope all ready.

FATHER: You killed eight wedding guests in all!

LANCELOT: Well, uh, you see, the thing is, I thought your son was a lady.

FATHER: I can understand that.

HERBERT: Hurry, Sir Lancelot! Hurry!

FATHER: Shut up! You only killed the bride's father, that's all!

LANCELOT: Well, I really didn't mean to...

FATHER: Didn't mean to?! You put your sword right through his head!

LANCELOT: Oh, dear. Is he all right?

FATHER: You even kicked the bride in the chest! This is going to cost me a fortune!

LANCELOT: Well, I can explain. I was in the forest, um, riding north from Camelot, when I got this note, you see--

FATHER: Camelot? Are you from, uh, Camelot?

HERBERT: Hurry, Sir Lancelot!

LANCELOT: Uh, I am a Knight of King Arthur, sir.

FATHER: Very nice castle, Camelot. Uh, very good pig country.


HERBERT: Hurry! I'm ready!

FATHER: Would you, uh, like to come and have a drink?

LANCELOT: Well, that-- that's, uh, awfully nice of you,...

HERBERT: I am ready!

LANCELOT:, I mean to be so understanding.





LANCELOT: ...I'm afraid when I'm in this idiom, I sometimes get a bit, uh, sort of carried away.

FATHER: Oh, don't worry about that.
