The synopsis below may give away important plot points. Synopsis The credits are rolled to deeply ominous music with several false starts, interlaced with apologies for the inadequacies of each, during which numerous titlers are fired en masse.
In the end, credits that are heavily laced with references to moose, llamas and other furry animals roll to highly festive Latin music. From the fog emerge two pedestrians: King Arthur Graham Chapmandressed in chain mail, a tunic and a crown; and Patsy Terry Gilliamwho appears to be fulfilling the role of beast of burden, and is using two half-coconuts percussively.
They approach a castle and Patsy perfectly mimics the sound of a galloping horse coming to a stop. Two guards become barely visible atop the castle wall.
Arthur announces that he is looking for knights to join him at Camelot, and wishes to recruit the master of the castle. Unfortunately, the two guards are immediately distracted by Patsy's half-coconut shells.
Arthur tries to return the conversation to the quest, but the guards are unable to turn their attentions from the possible causes for coconuts appearing in Mercia Englandas Arthur claims that they found them there, or how a bird, or a set of birds, might have brought one up from the tropics.
Frustrated, Arthur and Patsy emulate riding off. The scene changes to a plague village.
A cart is being drawn through the streets, and is attended by a disheveled man Eric Idle who strikes a triangle and calls for the residents to "bring out your dead. The attendant refuses to accept living cargo citing regulations.
When the peasant tries to abstractly request a favour, the attendant looks up and down the street to make sure there are no witnesses, and strikes the elderly subject a deadly blow to the head, solving the problem.
The cart and the peasant continue on their ways. Arthur and Patsy emulate a ride through the village, and the attendant correctly infers that Arthur is a king from the fact that he is not covered in shit.
On a hillside, near a castle, Arthur approaches a peasant Michael Palin from behind and calls out "Old woman! Unimpressed, Dennis then launches into a rant, making it very clear that he has harboured a great deal of bitterness over the class system, which he has experienced from the bottom all his life of 37 years.
Arthur is challenged to justify his kingship, and to an accompaniment of heavenly voices, tells the tale of the Lady of the Lake presenting Arthur with Excalibur. Dennis confidently challenges this presumption of political legitimacy.
Focusing on the executive branch, he asserts that it must "derive from a mandate from the masses. Unaffected, Dennis continues his elocution of democratic dogma, at which point Arthur manhandles him. This only encourages Dennis; he becomes a raving firebrand, and tries to call as much attention as possible to Arthur's assault.
The king accepts that he cannot adequately assert this authority in this situation, and relinquishes Dennis with "Bloody peasant! He seeks validation from the gathering crowd.
While travelling through a forest, Arthur and Patsy encounter an epic battle between two armoured, faceless men. When the black-clad knight John Cleese runs his opponent through the face, he retrieves his sword and then simply stands tall.
Arthur approaches him and praises him for his performance. The knight neither speaks a word, nor even turns his gaze towards the king. Despite this insolence, Arthur again does not respond with homicide, but invites the knight to enter his court. When no response is given, Arthur announces that he will continue on his quest.Jul 30, · Hilarious trailer of the holy grail ripped from the dvd.
