Melusine: I think I will throw up! ...Bleaoachh... (sick)

The witch: I ... quit my witch license ...Ahhhhhhh! (angry)

Arthur: You are responsible for all this!!!! I will have you beheaded! (furious)

Witch: You, idiot, I can transform you into a skeleton if I want to...(disgusted)

Arthur: Sorry...( almost crying)

Pintea: Let's get out of this beast!

Melusine: Yes, it's a good idea ....

Melisa: No!!! Why?

Melusine: Doesn't matter...could you tell us where is the way to the castle?

Arthur: My castle!!! (arrogant)

Melisa: Are you kidding? Camelot was destroyed more than 600 years ago!!! (surprised)

Arthur: What did you say? I will cut your tongue!!!! (furious)

Arthur: You, stupid witch! You brought us into the future!! I swear on God I will handle you when we get home! (very frustrated)

Melusine: I'm hungry...(sick)

Pintea: Oh...shut up...!!! (bothered)

Arthur: This is a disgrace... where is my horse, nobody bows to salute me!!

Witch: You cry baby….instead of complaining, you could help me gather some ingredients for a potion that could send us back to our time. (bothered)

Arthur: I am a king, not a servant ...ask Pintea! (arrogant)

Witch: For the potion, we need: a rat's tail, a chicken head, a lizard's eye, king's spit.... and (putting up a funny face) a lawyer!

Arthur: Oh...berk...( disgusted)

Pintea: What? A law... what?( surprised)
Witch: Just kidding. Now ..(serious)

Melusine: And how on earth, do we find this ingredients? (bothered)

Witch: By asking people, going from house to house, I don't know! You are the ones who want to return home, aren't you?

All: ...Yes! (bored)
