You probably heard we ain’t in the prisoner-taking business; we in the killin’ Nazi business. And cousin, business is a-boomin’.
Merlin: You know, lad, that love business is a powerful thing.
Arthur: Greater than gravity?
Merlin: Well yes, boy, in its way… yes, I’d say it’s the greatest force on earth.
I used to watch this movie, along with Disney’s Robin Hood, every Saturday afternoon. Every Saturday. Until I discovered Karate Kid, which resulted in a spontaneous obsession upgrade, so to speak.
Now it’s been years since the last time I saw it… The Sword in the Stone, I mean. I should try to get it on DVD :/

Footman: Miss Lizzie Bennet.
(Lizzie comes in, her face flushed, her skirt covered in mud. She looks ravishing. Darcy stares at her, then quickly rises to his feet. Caroline Bingley, astonished, looks her up and down).
Caroline: Good Lord, Miss Bennet. Have you walked here?
Lizzie: I have. I’m so sorry. How is my sister?
Mr. Darcy: (more kindly) She’s upstairs. (to footman) Show Miss Bennet the way, Alfred. (Lizzie leaves. A beat).
Caroline: Goodness, did you see her petticoat? Six inches deep in mud! (No response). And her hair, so blowsy and untidy!
Mr. Darcy: I think her concern for her sister does her credit. (A little pause, Caroline recovers).
Caroline: Oh yes, it’s shocking to have a bad cold. I dislike excessively being ill myself.

It’s a long story, but yes, I need to rewatch this movie as soon as I can find a moment to do so.
