Headmistress: [to Alex] It’s a tough world out there, and it’s getting tougher all the time. And the world is not going to change, it’s you that has to change.


 

Lance: [to Alex] Don’t be a hero, I’m the king around here.


 

Alex: Something amazing happened. You have to see what I found.
[he shows Bedders the sword]


 

Alex: I think it’s a prank, a YouTube thing, a social experiment. Maybe there were hidden cameras.
[he picks up the sword]
Alex: Look. There’s something written on the guard. Put it into Google Translate. “Gladius Arturi filius Tintageli.”
Bedders: It’s Latin. It means, “Sword of Arthur, the son of Tintagel.” Who’s Tintagel?
Alex: It’s a place, an island off the coast of Cornwall. Some people say it’s where King Arthur was born.
Bedders: Alex, what if you’re the only person who could have pulled that sword out? What if it’s, what if it’s the Sword in the Stone?
[they both start to laugh]


 

Young Merlin: Alexander Elliot, it was you who drew the sword! This realm faces mortal danger!


 

Young Merlin: I am Merlin.
Alex: I thought Merlin was supposed to be an old man.
Young Merlin: An ingenious disguise, don’t you think?


 

Alex: I thought Merlin was supposed to be an old man. You look about sixteen.
Young Merlin: An ingenious alias in order to monitor you in cognito.


 

Young Merlin: In four days the dark sorcerer Morgana will take over the world.
Alex: Am I supposed to stop her? That’s ridiculous.


 

Young Merlin: There are four days until the solar eclipse when Morgana will enter the world of the living.
Alex: Am I supposed to stop her? That’s ridiculous, I’m twelve.


 

Alex: [to Merlin] There’s your sword back, and good luck with everything.


 

Young Merlin: [to Alex] You will need to assemble a team of knights.


 

Merlin: You’re a king, Alexander. The sword chose you.


 

Lance: Why would we help you?
Alex: Because you’re the strongest people I know.


 

Alex: You’re my knights, and this is the round table.
[they all look down at the dinner table, which is rectangular]
Alex: Quick, Bedders, lift up the flaps.
[they lift the flaps of the dinner table, which makes it a round table]
Kaye: Oh, my God, you’re such a nerd.
Alex: This is destiny.


 

Alex: Arthur’s knights gathered at a round table so that they were all equal, and look…
[they all look down at the dinner table, which is rectangular]
Alex: Quick, Bedders, lift up the flaps.
[they lift the flaps of the dinner table, which makes it a round table]
Alex: See.
Kaye: Oh, my God, you’re such a nerd.
Alex: This is destiny.


 

Alex: This is like in every story we ever read. Luke Skywalker, Harry Potter, something amazing when they find out they’re descended from magical families.


 

Bedders: [to Alex] This is the worst and best, the most terrible excellent thing that’s ever happened to me.


 

Bedders: Where did you learn how to drive?
Kaye: Mario Kart.


 

Mary: Alex, we have to have a serious talk about that sword and this whole King Arthur thing.
Alex: We will, but I have to show you something first.
[fills up the bathtub with water]
Alex: Everything I said about the sword is true. I can prove it, but first we have to promise never to lie each other ever again, to always trust each other, whatever happens. Do you promise?
Mary: I promise.
Alex: I promise too. Now don’t freak out, okay?
[he turns towards the bathtub]
Alex: Lady of the Lake, this is Alexander Elliot. If my quest is noble and true, please return Excalibur.
[after a long pause suddenly a hand shoots out of the water holding the sword]


 

Alex: The five of us won’t stand a chance on our own. We need to raise an army.


 

[to the children at his school]
Alex: Who will join us?
[no one responds]
Young Merlin: How humiliating.
Headmistress: This is instead of lessons today.
[all the children cheer]
