Excalibur – another funny Monty Python quote that Rich could roll of his tongue. He would do all the voices and play all the parts when doing this quote. Basically, he did two parts, King Arthur and ‘the Woman’. All of Rich’s Woman characters in Monty Python skits sounded like hags. But it was still very funny to watch.
Kind Arthur: I am your king!
Woman: Well I didn’t vote for you!
King Arthur: You don’t vote for kings.
Woman: Well how’d you become king then?
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering silmite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king!
Woman: Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government! Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!
