MERLIN: (helping Arthur dress): When was the last time these were cleaned?
ARTHUR: Last year, sometime. Before the feast of Beltane.
MERLIN: Did it end in a food fight?
ARTHUR: Don’t all feasts?
MERLIN: I wouldn’t know. The airs and graces of the court are a mystery to me.
ARTHUR: Well, tonight, they won’t be.
MERLIN: I’m gonna be at the banquet?
ARTHUR: Not quite. You’ll be there to make sure my cup doesn’t run dry. If I have to sit through Bayard’s boring speeches, I don’t see why you should get out of it. Be sure to polish the buttons. Do you want to see what you’ll be wearing tonight?
MERLIN: Won’t this do?
ARTHUR: No. Tonight, you’ll be wearing the official ceremonial robes of the servants of Camelot. [shows him the outfit]
MERLIN: You can’t be serious.
