Merlin: I need to find the boy who will one day be King Arthur, and educate him so he is an effective King.
Arthur: I conveniently fell in through your roof.
Merlin: I am going to teach you kingly stuff like geometry and Latin.
Arthur: Okay. I’m currently a squire, and I want to be a Knight.
[Merlin convinces Arthur’s adopted father to let him move in]
Merlin: I’ve lived in the future, where we know the earth is round.
Arthur: That’s great!?
Merlin: Here let me teach you about life by turning you into a fish.
