    • Merlin: More soup?
      Simpleton Arthur: Yes, please (After Merlin has served it) Thank you.
      Merlin: A please and a thank you, all at the same time. That's amazing.
      Simpleton Arthur: Is it?
      Merlin: Well, let's just say manners are not your strong point.
      Simpleton Arthur: Really? In what way?
      Merlin: Rude, thoughtless, insensitive. And that's when you're in a good mood.
      Simpleton Arthur: I'm sorry to hear that.
      Merlin: I don't think you realise how hard I work for you. I know you're the King, but it would be nice if you could do one small thing for yourself, as a... gesture, a mark of respect.
      Simpleton Arthur: I'm sorry to have been a disappointment, Merlin. I'll try harder in future.
      Merlin: I'll look forward to that. On the other hand, why wait? That pot will need rinsing out as well.
      Simpleton Arthur: Of course.
      Merlin: And when you're done with that, the horses need a rub-down too.
      Simpleton Arthur: My pleasure.
