Monty Python and The Holy Grail

Scene 7: God Gives Arthur a Stern Talking To

[clop clop clop]

[boom]

[boom]

[angels sing]

GOD: Arthur! Arthur, King of the Britons! Oh, don't grovel!

[singing stops]

One thing I can't stand, it's people groveling.

ARTHUR: Sorry.

[boom]

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'.

[boom]

What are you doing now?!

ARTHUR: I'm averting my eyes, O 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.

ARTHUR: Good idea, O Lord!

GOD: 'Course it's a good idea! Behold!

[angels sing]

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.

[boom]

[singing stops]

LANCELOT: A blessing! A blessing from the Lord!

GALAHAD: God be praised!
