Monty Python and the Holy Grail - Just a Flesh Wound

One of the best-known scenes of the entire Monty Python film series. We might not see the Black Knight actually die, but it's just too good to pass up. What really makes this scene funny is how King Arthur becomes increasingly annoyed, his dialogue lapses from medieval ("You are indeed brave, Sir Knight, but the fight is mine.") to modern ("Look, you stupid bastard, you've got no arms left!"), and finally to just plain sarcastic ("What are you gonna do, bleed on me?!").

The funny thing is, if you read Mallory, this captures the spirit of the stories better than any other film adaptation.

This is a great movie scene. I remember it being parodied in a lot of shows.

Thanks for the laugh!
