Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sir Galahad is about to enter Castle Anthrax, it's pouring like there's no tomorrow. Although when he falls against the door and is about to open there is no rain, and no Niagara Falls pouring down the door. As a matter of fact, it's pretty dry on the door and almost a completely clear sky.

Father of the Groom: One day, lad, all this will be yours.
Prince Herbert: What, the curtains?
Father of the Groom: No, not the curtains, lad. All that you can see, stretched out over the hills and valleys of this land! This'll be your kingdom, lad.
Prince Herbert: But Mother -
Father of the Groom: Father, lad. Father.
Prince Herbert: But Father, I don't want any of that.
Father of the Groom: Listen, lad. I built this kingdom up from nothing. When I started here, all there was was swamp. Other kings said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em. It sank into the swamp. So, I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So, I built a third one. That burned down, fell over, THEN sank into the swamp, but the fourth one stayed up! And that's what you're gonna get, lad. The strongest castle in these islands.

Question: When Michael Palin is thrown into the fiery pit, he is either saying Yeeeoohhhhhhh or Yelllowwwww (meaning that was his favourite colour). Despite watching it many times, I'm still not sure which one it is...so does anyone know?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It's kind of both. He says "Blue", then realises he got it wrong and starts to say "No, yellow!" but then screams as he is thrown into the pit, so it's like "Blue. No, yell. Ooooooohhhhh!"

Question: During the song "Knights of the Round Table" they sing the line: "Between our quests we sequin vests". What does this mean? (English is not my mother tongue.)

Chosen answer: Sequins are small, flat, shiny ornamentations that are attached to clothing to give the garment a metallic look. The nights are saying that between quests, they sit arround sewing these items onto vests.
