Arthur: You’re late.
Merlin:
 Sorry. Gaius *panting* had me wa- *panting* the floors…”

Merlin: Wha..? Do you think I sit around doing nothing!? I haven’t had a chance to sit around and do nothing since the day I arrived in Camelot! I’m too busy running around after Arthur! Do this, Merlin! Do that, Merlin! And when I’m not running around after Arthur, I’m doing chores for you! And if I’m not doing that, I’m fulfilling my destiny! Do you know how many times I’ve saved Arthur’s life? I’ve lost count. Do I get any thanks? No. I have fought griffins, witches, bandits! I have be punched, poisoned, pelted with fruit, and all the while I have to hide who I really am, because if anyone finds out, Uther will have me executed! Sometimes I feel like I’m being pulled in so many directions, I don’t know which way to turn!
