Jocelyn: Sir Ulrick. What are you wearing to the ball tonight?
William: [who isn’t planning on going to the ball] er… nothing…
Jocelyn: Well, we shall cause a sensation, for I shall dress to match.
William: Oi sir, what are you doing?
Chaucer: Uh… trudging. You know, trudging?
Chaucer: To trudge: the slow, weary, depressing yet determined walk of a man who has nothing left in life except the impulse to simply soldier on.
William: Uhhh… were you robbed?
Chaucer: [laughs] Funny really, yes, but at the same time a huge resounding no. It’s more of an… involuntary vow of poverty… really.
Adhemar: And you are?
William: Well, I am, um.
Adhemar: You’ve forgotten, or your name is Sir Um?
William: Ulrich von Lichtenstein from Gelderland.
Adhemar: Well, I’d forget as well, what a mouthful.
Chaucer: You’re good. You’re very good. My lords, my ladies, and everybody else here not sitting on a cushion!
Chaucer: Today… today, you find yourselves equals.
Chaucer: For you are all equally blessed. For I have the pride, the privilege, nay, the pleasure of introducing to you to a knight, sired by knights. A knight who can trace his lineage back beyond Charlemagne. I first met him atop a mountain near Jerusalem, praying to God, asking his forgiveness for the Saracen blood spilt by his sword. Next, he amazed me still further in Italy when he saved a fatherless beauty from the would-be ravishing of her dreadful Turkish uncle.
Chaucer: In Greece he spent a year in silence just to better understand the sound- of a whisper. And so without further gilding the lily, and with no more ado, I give to you, the seeker of serenity, the protector of Italian virginity, the enforcer of our Lord God, the one, the only, Sir Ulllrrrich von Lichtenstein!
Chaucer: Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all week.
Chaucer: I’m a writer.
Wat: A what?
Chaucer: A wha- a what? A writer. You know, I write, with ink, and parchment. Geoffrey Chaucer’s the name, writing’s the game. You’ve probably read my book? the Book of the Duchess? No? Well, it was allegorical.
Roland: Well, we won’t hold that against you, that’s for every man to decide for himself.
…and then we wrote. Oh, I forgot to mention that on Monday we watched Sinbad: legend of the seven seas, which was also hilarious, and soooo quotable! But since I’ve already spammed you with Knight’s Tale quotes, I’ll only give you one.
Sinbad: “I’ve seen the kind of highbred boys your kind runs with with. I’m the only man you’ve ever met!”
