"You're using coconuts!

What?

You've got two empty halves of coconut and you're bangin' 'em together.

So? We have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land, through the kingdom of Mercia, through...

Where'd you get the coconuts?

We found them.

Found them? In Mercia? The coconut's tropical!

What do you mean?

Well, this is a temperate zone

The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land?

Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

Not at all. They could be carried.

What? A swallow carrying a coconut?

It could grip it by the husk!

It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here?

Listen. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?

Please!

Am I right?"

Hilarious scene.
Is it Trainspotting? Which I haven't seen.
I am going to tell you that you guessed it right, Lord Tyrion (Trainspotting).

I had to Google it, so it did not count for me, and it looks like Angelo from Holland has not been on recently, so rather than have you wondering I'll just say - yup!
(All those words appear in the trailer for Trainspotting).

"Have you never wanted to do anything that was dangerous? Where should we be if no one tried to find out what lies beyond? Have your never wanted to look beyond the clouds and the stars, or to know what causes the trees to bud? And what changes the darkness into light? But if you talk like that, people call you crazy. Well, if I could discover just one of these things, what eternity is, for example, I wouldn't care if they did think I was crazy."

Sounds like something from Altered States?

Forgot about this one. Same movie.

"Your parents' death was not your fault."
"It was your father's."
"People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as (myself). As a man, I'm flesh and blood, I can be ignored, I can be destroyed; but as a symbol... as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting."
"What symbol?"
"Something elemental, something terrifying."
"I assume that as you're taking on the underworld, this symbol is a persona to protect those you care about from reprisals."
"You're thinking about Rachel?"
"Actually, sir, I was thinking of myself."

Is it a Batman movie?
