00:07 - 00:09Man in front: Why does it have to be me?
00:09 - 00:11Alright, alright, alright, I'll do it.
00:11 - 00:14But you guys have to back me up. Okay?
00:15 - 00:16We are right behind you.
00:16 - 00:17Cool
00:26 - 00:26Yes?
00:27 - 00:28Good morning sir.
00:28 - 00:31We were just wondering...
00:31 - 00:33I was just wondering.
00:34 - 00:39If..uh, possibly, we um, we would like a pay raise?
00:39 - 00:43I'm sorry, I thought you said you wanted a pay raise.
00:43 - 00:44I did.
00:44 - 00:46We want more money and better working conditions.
00:47 - 00:50Is this some sort of peasant joke that I am too rich to understand??
00:50 - 00:51No, no
00:51 - 00:54It is just thanks to this terrible plague sweeping the country,
00:54 - 00:57Us peasants are dropping like flies.
00:57 - 00:59Those of us who are left, are getting quite valuable.
01:00 - 01:01Hah! Valuable indeed.
01:01 - 01:02What rubbish!
01:03 - 01:07Really some of us have had some tempting offers from other local knights in the area, so...
01:07 - 01:09Now you listen to me grubby, little commoner.
01:10 - 01:12You will work my fields for little and be thankful.
01:12 - 01:14Otherwise I will throw you off my land
01:15 - 01:16and give your job to...
01:17 - 01:19What is that one called?
01:19 - 01:20That's Phil.
01:21 - 01:23Phil...Your job will go to Phil.
01:24 - 01:25Got it?
01:30 - 01:31Oh...Well, maybe not Phil.
01:32 - 01:34He just died of the plague.
01:34 - 01:36Otherwise, I will give your job to..
01:36 - 01:39Um, I want to say John?
01:39 - 01:39Roger
01:39 - 01:40Roger!
01:40 - 01:42I will give your job to Roger.
01:42 - 01:42Understood?
01:45 - 01:45Oh.
01:45 - 01:47It is like I was telling you,
01:47 - 01:51Healthy, reliable peasants are getting harder to find.
01:51 - 01:52Old woman!
01:53 - 01:55Is what this man says true?
02:01 - 02:04Oh. I will take that as a yes.
02:04 - 02:05So,
02:05 - 02:09Would now be a good time for talking about the new terms of my job?
02:09 - 02:10Okay, fine!
02:10 - 02:13But you better not drop dead of plague after this.
02:13 - 02:14Oh no sir, You don't need to worry about me.
02:15 - 02:16I'm as fit as a---
02:19 - 02:21Absolutely typical.
02:21 - 02:23Well! Lucky for you peasants,
02:23 - 02:25I know my way around a...
02:25 - 02:28three..pointed...stick
02:28 - 02:30I am kidding myself,
02:30 - 02:32I have no idea what this is called.
02:32 - 02:33I know what it is for.
02:37 - 02:38Who needs peasants?
