Movie Quote Quiz

Arthur: This is my last act as your King. Do not be afraid. All things change. I, Arthur of Camelot, command you now all... To fight! Fight! Fight like you've never fought before! Never surrender! Never surrender! Fight!

Prince Malagant: They say this was once the greatest castle ever built. Now moss grows in the hall where kings once feasted, and peasants cart away the mighty walls stone by stone to make shelters for their pigs. Hah! Such is glory.

Prince Malagant: This is what Arthur doesn't understand. Men don't want brotherhood. They want leadership.

Lancelot: Why build a house for the warlords to burn?

King Arthur: Either what we hold to be right, and good, and true is right and good and true for all mankind under God, or we're just another robber tribe.

King Arthur: There's a peace only to be found on the other side of war. If that war should come I will fight it.

Prince Malagant: Self-sacrifice is very easy. It's having to sacrifice someone you love that puts your convictions to the test.

King Arthur: There are laws that enslave men, and laws that set them free.

King Arthur: God uses people like you, Lancelot. Because your heart is open. You hold nothing back. You give all of yourself.
Lancelot: If you knew me better, you would not say such things.
King Arthur: Oh, hey, I take the good with the bad, together. I can't love people in slices.

Guinevere: I want to marry you. Not your crown, not your army. Just you.

Lancelot: You must not care whether you live or die.

King Arthur: This is the heart of Camelot, not these stones, not these timbers, these palaces and towers. Burn them all and Camelot lives on, because it lives in us. Camelot is a belief that we hold in our hearts.

Lancelot: I dare not kiss so lovely a lady. I have but one heart to lose.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the end when King Arthur's funeral raft is floating away, you see white smoke coming from the wood at the foot of the raft. Cut to the shore, and the flaming arrow is lit and shot. Cut to the raft, and the flaming arrow hits the now smokeless raft in the spot where the smoke was. Cut to the shore, then back to the raft, where the fire begins to grow on both sides of the raft, nowhere near the now smokeless and flame-less spot where the flaming arrow hit in the previous shot.

Trivia: Prince Malagant describes the oubliette where he imprisons Guinevere as just having "walls of air." This is a reference to the fate of Merlin, who was sealed away in a "prison of air."
