Sir Galahad Quotes:

  • Sir Lancelot: [Sir Galahad the Chaste is being seduced by an entire castle full of young women] We were in the nick of time. You were in great peril.

    Sir Galahad: I don't think I was.

    Sir Lancelot: Yes, you were. You were in terrible peril.

    Sir Galahad: Look, let me go back in there and face the peril.

    Sir Lancelot: No, it's too perilous.

    Sir Galahad: Look, it's my duty as a knight to sample as much peril as I can.

    Sir Lancelot: No, we've got to find the Holy Grail. Come on.

    Sir Galahad: Oh, let me have just a little bit of peril?

    Sir Lancelot: No. It's unhealthy.

    Sir Galahad: I bet you're gay.

    Sir Lancelot: Am not.

  • King Arthur: Can we come up and have a look?

    French Soldier: Of course not. You're English types.

    French Soldier: Mind your own business.

    Sir Galahad: He said they've already got one!

    King Arthur: Are you sure he's got one?

    French Soldier: Oh yes, it's very nice!

  • King Arthur: [about the inscription on the rock] What does it say, Brother Maynard?

    King Arthur: What?

    Brother Maynard: "The Castle of Aaaauuuggghhhh"

    Sir Bedevere: What is that?

    Brother Maynard: He must have died while carving it.

    King Arthur: Oh come on!

    Brother Maynard: Well, that's what it says.

    King Arthur: Look, if he was dying, he wouldn't have bothered to carve 'Aaaauuuggghhhh'. He'd just say it.

    Sir Galahad: Maybe he was dictating it.

    King Arthur: Oh shut up!

    Sir Robin: Well does it say anything else?

    Brother Maynard: No, just "Aaaaauuuugggghhh".

    [knights making groaning sounds]

    Sir Bedevere: Do you think he could have mean, 'Camaaaauuuuggghhhh'?

    Sir Galahad: Where's that?

    Sir Bedevere: France, I think.

    Sir Lancelot: Isn't there a Saint "Aaaaavvvveeeesss" in Cornwall?

    King Arthur: No that's Saint "Ives".

    Sir Lancelot: Oh, yes. "Iiiiiivvvveeessss"!

    [All knights saying, "Iiiiiivvvveeessss"]

    Sir Bedevere: Whooooouuuuaaa!

    Sir Lancelot: No no no, it's "Aaaaauuuugggghhhh" from the back of the throat.

    Sir Bedevere: No I mean, "Whoooouuuuaaa!" as in surprise and alarm.

    Sir Lancelot: Oh, you mean like, "AAAHH!"

    Sir Bedevere: Yes, that's it. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

  • Sir Galahad: Zoot!

    Dingo: No, I am Zoot's identical twin sister, Dingo.

    [He tried to get past her]

    Dingo: Where are you going?

    Sir Galahad: I seek the Grail! I have seen it, here in this castle!

    Dingo: Oh, no! Oh, no! Bad, bad Zoot!

    Sir Galahad: What is it?

    Dingo: Oh, wicked, bad, naughty Zoot! She has been setting a light to our beacon, which, I've just remembered, is Grail shaped. It's not the first time we've had this problem.

    Sir Galahad: It's not the real Grail?

    Dingo: Oh, wicked, bad, naughty, evil Zoot! Oh, she is a bad person, and she must pay the penalty!

    [Turns to camera]

    Dingo: Do you think this scene should have been cut? We were so worried when the boys were writing it, but now we're glad! It's better than some of the previous scenes I think.

    Left Head: At least ours was better visually.

    Dennis: At least ours was committed, it wasn't just a string of pussy jokes.

    Bridgekeeper: Get on with it.

    Tim: Yes! Get on with it!

    Army: Yeah! Get on with it!

    Dingo: Oh, I am enjoying this scene!

    God: Get on with it!

  • Sir Galahad: Is there someone else up there we can talk to?

    French Soldier: No, now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!

  • Zoot: Welcome, brave sir Knight. Welcome to the Castle Anthrax.

    Sir Galahad: The Castle Anthrax?

    Zoot: Yes... it's not a very good name, is it? Oh, but we are nice, and we'll attend to your every need.

  • Sir Galahad: What a strange person.

  • Sir Galahad: If you're half as brave as you talk, you'll have the courage to unmask!

    Bartog, Ulric's Aide: We'll see if YOU have the courage to die!

  • Bors: Have you been doing battle with the spirits of the Enchanted Forest?

    Sir Galahad: [trying to catch his breath] That... that must be it.

    Bors: I take it that Merlin has caused you a little trouble.

    Sir Galahad: Not half the trouble I'll cause you if you don't take me to King Arthur!

    Bors: Your threat is my command.

  • Ulric - The Saxon King: You dare to challenge Excalibur?

    Sir Galahad: I not only dare... I must!

  • Bors: Whoa. Galahad, I have an uncanny chill coursing up and down my spine. Have you never heard it said that rashness is the father of disaster?

    Sir Galahad: True... but too much caution is the blood brother of cowardice.

  • Bors: Doubtless you think it's an easy matter to find that outlaw camp.

    Sir Galahad: One more "doubtless" out of you and I'll *doubtless* crack you right on your thick...

  • Tavern Wench: What's your pleasure, gentlemen?

    Sir Galahad: We had hoped to toast the health of Bartog and Cawker, but they don't seem to be here.

    Tavern Wench: How could you, with them in the back room making great plans.

    Sir Galahad: Some of those plans concern me. I've been made a captain on account of the attack on Camelot.

    Tavern Wench: They were talking of Camelot true enough, when I last took a round of drinks.

    Sir Galahad: [placing a coin in her hand] Give them another round. Say it's from two of their most loyal men.

    [Bors also takes her hand and gives her another coin]

    Tavern Wench: What's the extra one for?

    Sir Galahad: That's to leave the door open when you come out. We'd like to hear the good news.

  • Sir Galahad: Arthur's sword - the true Excalibur - will be at the Ram's Head Inn this noon, but I'll need help to recover it.

    Sir Lancelot: No doubt you will, but you've come to the wrong place. Who here will believe you?

    Sir Galahad: You will.

  • Sir Lancelot: I can get you safely beyond the walls. We'll use the secret passageway.

    Sir Galahad: Is it guarded?

    Sir Lancelot: Certainly - by me!

  • Sir Galahad: Now there's nothing to stop the Black Knight from rallying the outlaws, joining with Ulric and storming Camelot!

    Bors: Except us.

  • Sir Galahad: Put yourself in The Black Knight's place. Where would you go?

    Bors: Home and lie down. I'm tired.
