Hawkins: I’ve got it! The pellet with the poison’s in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right?
Griselda: Right! — but there’s been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace…
Hawkins: They broke the chalice from the palace?
Griselda: …and replaced it. With a flagon.
Hawkins: A flagon?
Griselda: With the figure of a dragon.
Hawkins: Flagon with a dragon.
Griselda: Right.
Hawkins: …but did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?
Griselda: No! The pellet with the poison’s in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!
Hawkins: The pellet with the poison’s in the flagon with the dragon, the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.
Griselda: Just remember that!

…something I just heard on a podcast, also available on YouTube. It is part of the film The Court Jester, which is now in my Netflix queue.
