What is your favorite quote from the holy grail

What is your favorite quote from the monty python holy grail?? I'm at a draw on these two for myself!!!:)
“And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.”

"Listen, lad. I built this kingdom up from nothing. When I started here, all there was was swamp. Other kings said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em. It sank into the swamp. So, I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third one. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one... stayed up! And that's what you're gonna get, lad: the strongest castle in these islands.”

A few years back we were forming an online Organization (anti-Child Protection Services), we were making a charter (a statement of the things that we were about). I jokingly suggested that "Supreme executive power derives from a mandate by the masses.

The phrase became incorporated into the Charter.

Google the phrase and you should find the group AFRA.
