Monty Python and the Holy Grail Scene 3

Scene 3

Scene 3

  • Arthur and Patsy, with heroic adventure music playing triumphantly in the background, come across an old woman. Oh wait, never mind. It's Dennis.
  • Arthur inquires about who lives in a nearby castle, while Dennis explains to him sort of autonomous communal government they're living under.
  • He and his co-worker question Arthur's authority as king.
  • Arthur cites the Lady of the Lake and Excalibur as proof of his authority, but Dennis points out that just because "some watery tart" threw a sword at him, it doesn't give him the right to be King.
  • Arthur grows more and more irate, eventually manhandling Dennis and ordering him to shut up.
  • Arthur is fed up once again, so off he goes.
