** In the touring production, at least, they distract the audience from setting up the "legless" special effect by having a man come on asking for "arms for the poor".

Added DiffLines:

*
-->'''Patsy:''' [[spoiler:Well, sir...I'm a Jew.]]\\
'''Arthur:''' [[spoiler:...Well, why on earth didn't you ''say'' so, Patsy?]]\\
'''Patsy:''' [[spoiler:I'm sorry, sir, but...it's just not the sort of ''thing'' you tell a heavily-armed Christian.]]
* "I'm All Alone". Arthur singing about how alone he is? Sad. Patsy standing ''right there''? Really sad. ''A bunch of other knights'' joining in Arthur's lament of how alone he is? Priceless.
* TheReveal of the Lady of the Lake's true identity.
-->'''Arthur:''' Lady...I would have your true name.\\
'''Lady:''' [[spoiler: It's...Guinevere.]]\\
'''Lancelot:''' ...Holy '''''shit.'''''
* His name is Lance-a-lot, and in tight pants-a-lot!
*
-->'''Arthur:''' I thought you were a fairy.\\
'''Lady of the Lake:''' No, that's Lancelot.
** [[OverusedRunningGag Holy shit]].
* "The Song That Goes Like This." Each time the Lady of the Lake and Galahad try to bring the song to a close, the key just modulates ''again.'' By the final chorus, they're screaming "Oh, GODDAMMIT!" at the orchestra.
* The battle between King Arthur and the Black Knight is 100% pure hilarity.
** "It's only a flesh wound!"
** "You stupid bastard, you've got no arms!"
** In the touring production, at least, they distract the audience from setting up the "legless" special effect by having a man come on asking for "arms for the poor".
* In "You Won't Succeed on Broadway", Sir Robin, his Minstrels and the Knight Chorus re-enact the Bottle Dance scene from ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof''... with ''grails on their heads''. Robin's first mention of "if we don't have any Jews" is usually met with a full minute of laughter as well.
