Crash into Harem Hello

Every castle has a room full of pretty ladies.

Name Space:
Page Type:
The attempt by the hero to kill the villain has failed and he's on the run. He manages to escape from the guards by jumping from a roof into the window of a room... which has beautiful women in little clothing, lots of silk, and maybe a bath. He's just found the harem.

(I'll add something besides the Example As Thesis later.)

    • Disney's Aladdin. This happens to the title character while he's escaping the guards (after stealing a loaf of bread) and singing "One Jump Ahead".
    • Monty Python And The Holy Grail has two related examples.
      • Sir Galahad fights his way through a forest in a storm until he finds Castle Anthrax, which has a Grail-shaped beacon overhead. He bangs on the door, and when it opens he falls inside. He meets several young women, one of whom tells him that the castle contains eight score young blondes and brunettes, all between 16 and 19-and-a-half.
      • As Sir Galahad escapes from two naughty female doctors, he enters a room filled with the aforementioned eight score young women.

    Watch it here.

    Happens in the Bugs Bunny episode "A-Lad-In His Lamp".
    Bugs: (Rushes into a room, screams are heard, he rushes out and closes the door) Er, um... a Hare-em, I think.
    Genie: (opens the door and looks in, to more screams) Oh, that was a harem all right. I know a harem when I see one.

    Another film example: The Scorpion King. Matthias gets flung into the harem by catapult (It Makes Sense In Context) and lands in the harem. The ladies all fawn over they gently pickpocket all his weapons.
