Prince Herbert: But Mother -
Father of the Groom: Father, lad. Father.
Prince Herbert: But Father, I don't want any of that.

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.

Second Villager: She turned me into a newt.
