no not the curtains lad. *smack* all that you can see! stretched out over the hills and valleys of this land! it'll be your kingdom lad. but mother... father. I'm father. but father... I don't want any of that. Listen, lad. I built this kingdom up from nothing. when I got here all there was was swamp. other kings said it'd be daft to build a castle in 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 and 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 isles. but I don't want any of that. I'd rather... RATHER WHAT!? I'd rather... just... SING! *music swells* stop that, stop that! you're not going into a song while I'm here. Listen, Alice. Herbert. Herbert. In two hours you're getting married to a girl who's father owns the biggest tracks of open land in Britain but I don't like her. DON'T LIKE HER!? *smack* WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER? *smack* She's beautiful, she's rich she's got huge... tracks of land! I know. but I want the girl that I marry to have... a certain... special... something *music swells* stop that stop that! Listen! you're marrying Princess Lucky so you'd better get used to the idea!
