Go in a Little deeper.

It's gotta snap easy.

We don't want anybody

getting killed out there.

Whoo! Little John!

This is beautiful! Did you see that?

It looks a Little heavy, Morgan.

It'll knock you on your ass, Sir Knight!

That's just what I'm afraid of, a hit in

the head with that thing. Let me see it.

It doesn't have as much force

as a lance tip head on.

A lance tip will snap your neck for you.

That's for swinging side-arm.

I don't know, Little John.

It's not like a ball and chain.

The chain absorbs most of the impact.

This damn thing's solid.

So, what the hell?

Kay's got that long-handled battle-axe.

Yeah, but the head's made out of

rubber. This thing's got its own inertia.

Did you see that?

Just cos your armour'll

take a bazooka shell.

Don't forget some of us

are wearing tinfoil.

That's your problem.

My problem is to knock you

out of that saddle,

and this baby is sure gonna help.

We don't need to make it

any rougher than it already is.

All right, we won't use it today.

We'll try it out first, OK?

Unless you'd like to use it.

- Ah, no thanks.

- I'm not afraid of it.

I'll still blow you away.

- Has anyone seen Billy yet?

- Not since he rode out with Lin.

Geez, how can we tourney

without our king to lead us?

There may not be a tourney.

- Alan, we got trouble with the law.

- Aw, Christ.

- Did he say where he was heading?

- Somewhere down by the river.

Aah! Oh!

Lester, I think maybe

we should go get a seat, OK?

Oh, Helen, shut up

and give me another beer.

- Daddy.

- Another 75 cents.

- Huh?

- Another 75 cents.

No, no, sweetheart, I paid you for two.

That's my second ear of corn.

No, no, no, sweetheart, you dropped

your second ear of corn.

That's your third ear of corn.

Another 75 cents, please.


you're shaking up the beers!

Daddy, you're a slob!

A fat

slob jerk!

And, Mother, you're a wimp!

Do you hear that, Helen? That's your

daughter calling me a fat slob jerk!


Hey, Morgan Le Fay.

- You look beautiful again today.

- Mm-hm.

- Come here. Come here.

- Stop it. Stop.

Hey, you better watch out.

I'm fixing your bikes, you know.

- You're fixing my bikes, you know?

- Mm-hm.

I'll fix your bike, you know.

- Look, don't put that grease on me.

- Uh-huh.

No, whoa, whoa! Stop.

We got trouble with the law.

- What?

- Go find Merlin.

Oh! Oh, you jerk!

Oh. Oh, my God. Oh, God.

- It's all right. I'll be all right.

- Are you hurt? God, I'm so sorry.

I can't believe it. Ow! Damn!

- Aah!

- Oh, I'm so sorry!

- No, no, no, I'm hurt enough already.

- Oh, gee, I didn't see you.

I was walking down this way

and before I knew it...

Right, right, right.


No problem.

No broken bones.

Anyway, it's what I do.

Fall off bikes is what I do.

- You'll see. You gonna be here later?

- I don't know.

Oh, well.

Er... it gets kinda rough out there

sometimes, huh?

- I mean, does it get bloody?

- Nah, sometimes a Little.

It's never too bad

when it's just a show, though.

- You ever ride a bike?

- Uh-uh.

Well, listen, I gotta go for a Little ride.

You wanna come?

Come on. Come on.

- OK, now just hang on to me.

- Oh!

Like I said,

I'm gonna have to shut you down.

Now just wait a minute.

We have a permit.

Come on, Tuck.

Where the hell's the permit?

I didn't sign this.

You, er... sign this, Jess?

Never seen it before.

Guess the sheriff must have signed it.

I don't see how we can

let this go on, Jess.

No, er... medical facilities. No doctor.

- He's a doctor.

- He's a what?

And he's got enough equipment and

supplies to handle an emergency.

George A. Romero

George Andrew Romero (February 4, 1940 – July 16, 2017) was an American-Canadian filmmaker, writer and editor, best known for his series of gruesome and satirical horror films about an imagined zombie apocalypse, beginning with Night of the Living Dead (1968), which is often considered a progenitor of the fictional zombie of modern culture.

Aside from this series, his works include The Crazies (1973), Martin (1978), Creepshow (1982), Monkey Shines (1988), The Dark Half (1993) and Bruiser (2000). He also created and executive-produced the 1983–88 television series Tales from the Darkside.
