Scene 21

Scene 21

  • Suddenly, the company sees the Bridge of Death.
  • Sir Lancelot volunteers to be the first to cross the Gorge of Eternal Peril and in doing so must answer five, no, three questions from the Bridgekeeper.
  • The bridge keeper asks his name, quest, and favorite color. Lance answers each correctly and goes across. Piece of cake.
  • Robin, however, is asked to name the capital of Assyria. He doesn't know and is cast into the gorge.
  • Galahad's next. He's asked his favorite color—but he gets it wrong. Goodbye Galahad.
  • When the Bridgekeeper asks Arthur the air-speed velocity of a swallow, Arthur asks him if he means an African or European swallow. The Bridgekeeper doesn't know so he himself falls victim to the gorge.
