Quotes from the Movie Camelot

Must we talk about Mordred? This is the first time in a month that he's not coming to dinner and not having him makes it seem like a party!

Guinevere

The one thing I can say for him is that he's bound to marry well. Everybody is above him.

Guinevere

Just when I reach the golden age of eligibility and wooability. Is my fate determined by love and courtship? Oh, no. [Bitterly] Clause one: fix the border; Clause two: establish trade; Clause three: deliver me; Clause four: stop the war; five, six: pick up sticks. How cruel! How unjust! Am I never to know the joys of maidenhood? The conventional, ordinary, garden variety joys of maidenhood?

Guinevere

Oh, Pellinore, forget it! You will never burn down a barn, you will never know a farmer named William and you will never, ever be found in a court!

Arthur

No. In the court there is also a jury, who decides whether you are guilty or not guilty.

Arthur

No, Pellinore. Look, in the court, there is a prosecutor for Farmer William and a defendant for you.

Arthur

Er...let us say, a farmer named...William?

Arthur

Now, Pelly, you claim you haven't. What does he do then?

Arthur

Let us say you are accused of burning down a farm.

Arthur

Wrong or right, they have the might, so wrong or right, they're always right, and that's wrong... right?

Arthur

Well, SOMEONE has to do it!

Arthur

Well, it's a sort of... um... picnic? They pick flowers and chase young...

Arthur

It's a custom we have here. This is England, you know. And this is the season for gathering flowers.

Arthur

Well... actually... there's not much going on today. The Queen and some of her court have gone a-maying.

Arthur

But for what purpose? Might isn't always right, Jenny.

Arthur

We must arrange for your knighthood.

Arthur

No, no, no! I swear it! By the Sword Excalibur! I swear I won't touch you.

Arthur

A thousand pardons, Milady. Wait! Don't run. [She stops and looks at him coweringly] Please! I won't harm you.

Arthur

But even the thought, "I'm not thinking a thought" is thinking, isn't it?

Arthur

Mordred, I must remind you that I am a civilized man. With occasional lapses.

King Arthur

Far more seasoned rascals than you have polished their souls, I advise you, get out the wax. Better to be rubbed clean than rubbed out.

King Arthur

Merlyn, why have you never taught me love and marriage?

King Arthur

Proposition: It's far better to be alive than to be dead.

King Arthur

And -what of teaching me by turning me to animal and bird, From beaver to the smallest bobolink! I should have had a -whirl At changing to a girl, To learn the way the creatures think!

King Arthur
