my dad, suggesting a dissertation topic:

no, marie. listen to me. everything on robin hood has not been done! because - and let me tell you this - they met on a bridge! a classic freudian image. they had battle with their staffs! - because robin hood and little john were homosexual lovers. i mean, come on. and the sheriff of nottingham? he was fucking titillated by it! they fought and everything, but it was just to throw everyone off the scent. he was part of their little triad. oh, and their little things, their little green - mantles? kirtils? - their what-the-hell-evers. those are feminine. theyre like little skirts. i saw the movie, man. basil rathbone.
