When I was a lad, I ate four dozen eggs every morning to help me get large.
And now that I'm grown, I eat five dozen eggs, so I'm roughly the size of a barge!

Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance! Like so many things it's not what's on the outside, but what is on the inside that counts.

There was only one thing to do: lock the poor chap in his chamber and keep him there until the poison worked out of his system.

And below the hilt, in letters of gold, were written these words: "Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rightwise king born of England." Though many tried for the sword with all their strength, none could move the sword nor stir it. So the miracle had not worked, and England was still without a king [showing The Sword in the stones covered in vines] - and in time, the marvelous sword was forgotten [fades out]. This was a dark age [showing a Star], without law and without order [Fades into a Dark forest]. Men lived in fear of one another, for the strong preyed upon the weak.

The road to true love may be barred by still many more dangers, which you alone will have to face. So arm thyself with this enchanted Shield of Virtue, and this mighty Sword of Truth, for these weapons of righteousness will triumph over evil. Now come, we must hurry.

That's too bad. I thought the two of you, you know, a boy, a girl, alone in the City of Love. I thought romance was a forgone conclusion.
