Prince John: Send word to one and all and all and one. That's a little redundant isn't it?
Royal Announcer: What?
Prince John: Shut up! Let everybody know before the day's out, we're gonna have a wedding. Or a hanging. Either way we oughta have a lot of fun, huh?

[Blinkin has snatched an arrow from mid-air as it's about to hit Robin.]

Robin Hood: Darling, what are you doing here?

Robin Hood: Is it not also illegal to sit in the king's throne and usurp his power in his absence?
Prince John: Careful, Robin. You go too far.
Robin Hood: I've only just begun. I've come to warn you, that if you don't stop levying these evil taxes, I shall lead the good people of England in a revolt against you.
Prince John: And why should the people listen to you?
Robin Hood: Because, unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent.

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.
