    I'm beginning to think you rely on us a bit TOO much in helping with your homework.

    If I recall he is the son of Lancelpt and Guenevere (sp?). And he is the purest knight ever.

    He was actually the son of Elaine of Corbenic. Arthur, Lancelot and a few other knights (legend goes) were lured onto a boat with many beautiful damsels and 'spent the night' with them. The damsel Lancelot spent the night with appeared to him as Gwenivere. This is sort of a foreshadowing of the two running off together.

    Galahad was the only knight who could sit in the siege perilous and was sent off on a quest for the Holy Grail, which he supposedly completed and became the perfect knight.

    Sir Lancelot:
    We were in the nick of time. You were in great peril.
    Sir Galahad:
    I don't think I was.
    Sir Lancelot:
    You were, Sir Galahad. You were in terrible peril.
    Sir Galahad:
    Look, let me go back in there and face the peril.
    Sir Lancelot:
    No, it's too perilous.

    He we sent? I thought he left? and I've seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail more than 50 times. "when danger reared it's ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled, Brave brave brave sir robin"

  13. Sir Gala had too much to drink one knight, so he called a cab. :rolleyes:

    All the horsey cabs were taken, but he remembered that a new cab company had just opened on Dromedary road, so he called a cab from the camel lot. :rollno: His girlfriend was a very bad driver and would frequently Guinevere off the road into a ditch. :bag:

    Sir Lancelot Armstrong had just won the Tour de Gaul. :meh:

    DO NOT submit this report to your teacher. :D

    Mike :D

    he's not the son of guinevere. i forget who the mother is.

    and i know that more than one person wrote arthurian legend!

    so there is not really one unified canon. for instance, malory (and the earlier writers) had morgause be the incestuous mother of mordred, but many of the later writers had morgan la fey be his mother (since it was easier to explain that a witch caused arthur to get down with one of his sisters).

    and... since you, ksdbass, are on the internet already... why don't you just use google!

    (that's not a question, hence the lack of question mark. :D . use google!)

    that is... unless your teacher specifically required that you interview bass players over the internet about what they knew about sir galahad. :rolleyes: :p

  16. You left out the last two lines, the funniest ones!

    Sir Galahad:
    I bet you're gay.
    Sir lancelot:
    No I'm not!

    wow, I haven't been here in a long time. Myspace has taken TB's place as my time waster recently, not sure if I am going to change back.
  17. I always wondered what they said in those two lines... Now I know.
  18. Does your television not have volume control? :p
