Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Question: When Abbot is walking down the aisle at the wedding, everyone says "Good morrow Abbot", but one guys says "Hey Abbot!" and Abbot says "I hate that guy!" Is this a reference to something? I never got the joke.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: The scene is an homage to the late, great comedy team, Abbott and Costello. Bud Abbott was the straight man and Lou Costello was the goofy laugh-getter. Part of their act was Costello getting frustrated trying to understand Abbott and yelling "hey Abbott" at him.

Guy

Question: When one of the characters shoots an arrow and then says, "We're from Georgia", what does he mean?

Chosen answer: Will Scarlet says, "My whole name is Will Scarlet O'Hara. We're from Georgia." Scarlet O'Hara is a character from "Gone with the Wind" which is set in Georgia.

Myridon

Question: When Will says, "Well, I haven't quite figured that part out yet," is he answering Achoo's question or referring to his botched attempt at sheathing his daggers? I'm inclined to believe that it's the latter; it seems to fit both of them.

Knever

Chosen answer: The latter - he hasn't figured out yet how to sheathe his daggers without cutting his belt holding up his pants.

Zwn Annwn

Question: Is there any significance to the pantyhose that the team gives out being encased in plastic eggs?

Knever

Chosen answer: L'Eggs was a famous brand of panty hose that came inside plastic eggs. That's the joke.

Question: When Robin asks Rabbi Tuckman to marry him and Maid Marian, Rabbi says that he's on his last customer and that he'll be right out, and then we hear a crack, a guy calling out in pain and the Rabbi telling him "Put a little ice on it. You'll be fine." What was the joke? I never understood what he did that made the guy call out in pain. Can someone please explain?

Chosen answer: He was giving the man inside a circumcision. Earlier in the movie, Rabbi Tuckman showed Robin and the Merry Men a small handheld guillotine. He gave a demonstration by taking a carrot which was to represent a man's penis and used the guillotine to cut the tip of the carrot off.
