*** Blessing from the Lord *** *** Monty Python and the Holy Grail *** Bedevere: And that, my leige, is how we know the earth to be of a girly shapement. Arthur: This new learning amazes me, Sir Bedevere. Explain again, how sheep's bladders can be employed to prevent earthquakes. Bedevere: Oh, certainly, Sir. You see,... (Thunder) (the clouds open and a giant animated face is seen. It speaks:) God: Aaaarthur... Aarthur, King of the Britons... (the knights fall to their knees) God: Oh don't grovel! Arthur: Sorry, Lord... God: And DON'T apologize!! Every time I try to talk to somebody, its "I'm sorry" this and "forgive me" that and "I'm not *worthy*"... It's like those miserable Psalms--they're soooo depressing! Arthur: Yes, Lord. God: What're you doing now? Arthur: Averting my eyes, o Lord. God: Well KNOCK IT OFF! Arthur: Yes, Lord. God: Right. Arthur, King of the Britons, I have decided to set you a task as an example in these dark times. Arthur: Good idear, o Lord! God: (thunder) 'COURSE IT'S A GOOD IDEA! Now: this is the Holy Grail. (giant picture of a golden, jewel-encrusted grail appears in the sky) (heavenly music) Look well, Arthur: It is your mission to seek this Grail. That is your purpose, Arthur: The Quest for the Holy Grail! (the clouds slam shut.) Arthur: A blessing! A blessing from the Lord! Lancelot: God be praised!
