King illegal forest to pig wild kill in it a is!
ROBIN HOOD, MAID MARIAN
What?
SHERIFF OF ROTTINGHAM
I mean, don't you know it's illegal to kill a wild pig in the king's forest?
ROBIN HOOD
Is it not also illegal to sit on the king's throne and usurp his power in his absence?
PRINCE JOHN
Careful Robin, you go too far.

Sire, I have news!
PRINCE JOHN
And what sort of news do you have? It's not bad news, is it? You know I can't take bad news. The day started out so good. I had a good night's sleep, I had a good B.M. I don't want to hear any bad news. So, what kind of news is it?
SHERIFF OF ROTTINGHAM
Well, to be perfectly frank, it's bad.
PRINCE JOHN
[shouts] I knew it! I knew it would be bad news. Wait, I have an idea. Maybe if you tell me the *bad* news in a *good* way, it wouldn't sound so bad.
SHERIFF OF ROTTINGHAM
[thinking] The bad news in a good way. Yes, I can do that. The bad news in a good way. Well, here it goes.
SHERIFF OF ROTTINGHAM
W-wait till you hear this! I just saw Robin of Locksley, he's back from the crusades. [laughs] You know, he just beat the *crap* out of me and my men. [laughs] He hates you and he loves your brother, Richard! [laughs] And... [laughs]... he wants to see you hanged! [laughs] We, we're in a lot of trouble! [laughs and snorts loudly]
PRINCE JOHN
[furious] What, are you crazy? Why are you laughing? This is terrible news!
