MERLIN:

(waxing eloquent)

Behold the sword of power, Excalibur.

Before Uther, it belonged to Lud,

before Lud, to Beowulf, before Beowulf

to Baldur the Good, before Baldur to

Thor himself and that was when the

world was young and there were more

than seven colors in the rainbow.

(and in an aside to

Uther)

Speak the words.

UTHER:

(bellowing)

One land, one king! That is my peace!

The Duke of Cornwall looks around nervously as some of his

knights fall to their knees in awe.

DUKE OF CORNWALL

Lord Uther, if I yield to the sword

of power, what will you yield?

UTHER:

Me, yield!?

Merlin urges Uther hard.

MERLIN:

(a whisper)

He has given. Now you must.

The two knights glare at each other, rage contending with

anger.

UTHER:

The land from here to the sea is

yours if you will enforce the King's

will.
