Harald: King of the Instructors.
Instructor: Who are the Instructors?
Harald: Well, we all are. We are all Instructors. And I am your king.
Instructor: I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective.
Instructor2: You'rw foolin' yourself! We're living in a dictatorship. A self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working class...
Instructor: Oh, there you go bringing class into it again.
Instructor2: Well, that's what it's all about! If only people would...
Harald: Please, please, good people, I am in haste. Who lives in that castle?
Instructor: No one lives there.
Harald: Then who is your lord?
Instructor: We don't have a lord.
Instructor2: I told you, we're an anarco-sydicalist commune. We take it in turns to be a sort of executive officer for the week...
Instructor2: ...but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting...
Harald: Yes I see...
Instructor2: ...by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs...
Harald: Be quiet!
Instructor2: ...but by a two thirds majority in the case of more major...
Harald: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
Instructor: Order, eh? Who does he think he is?
Harald: I am your king.
Instructor: Well I didn't vote for you.
Harald: You don't vote for kings.
Instructor: Well how'd you become king then?
[Angelic music plays... ]
Harald: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Harald, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.
Instructor2: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' Skis is no basis for a system of ski teaching. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical snowy ceremony.
Instructor2: Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a ski at you.
Harald: SHUT UP!!
Instructor2: Oh but if I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a super shape at me, they'd put me away.
Harald: SHUT UP!! WILL YOU SHUT UP!!
Instructor2: Ahh, now we see the violence inherent in the system.
Harald: SHUT UP!!
Instructor2: Come and see the violence inherent in the system. Help! Help! I'm being repressed!
Harald: BLOODY PEASANT!
Instructor2: Oh, what a giveaway! Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about! Did you see him repressing me? You saw him, Didn't you?
