"Somebody has to do it! (Camelot)

In Camelot, King Arthur's rules are tested by Sir Lancelot, who challenges the fact of King Arthurs knights picking flowers in May:

Lancelot Du Lac: Knights? Gathering FLOWERS?

Full dialogue:

  • King Arthur: We must arrange for your knighthood.
  • Lancelot Du Lac: No, sire! Invest me because of deeds, not words! Give me an order!
  • King Arthur: Now?
  • Lancelot Du Lac: This moment! Is there some wrong I can right, some peril I can face, some quest I can undertake?
  • King Arthur: Well... actually... there's not much going on today. The Queen and some of her court have gone a-maying.
  • Lancelot Du Lac: Gone... a-maying?
  • King Arthur: Well, it's a sort of... um... picnic? They pick flowers and chase young...
  • Lancelot Du Lac: Picnic?
  • King Arthur: It's a custom we have here. This is England, you know. And this is the season for gathering flowers.
  • Lancelot Du Lac: Knights? Gathering FLOWERS?
  • King Arthur: Well, SOMEONE has to do it!
