Louis XI, King of France:
[Watching an acrobat trying to balance on a ball]
What's he trying to do?
Procurator:
He's heard a rumour that the earth is round and he's attempting to walk to the Indies - the idiot.
The King's Physician:
[Interjecting]
It's not round, it's flat!
Louis XI, King of France:
The idiot? There are some famous geographers and mathematicians who also believe the earth is round.
The King's Physician:
[Interjecting again]
It's isn't round, it's flat!
Louis XI, King of France:
Do you recollect that letter we had from er... what's his name... oh, Chris... Christopher Columbus? Who wrote claiming that he could by steering a Westerly course, reach the Indies?
The King's Physician:
[Interjecting yet again]
It's flat!
Louis XI, King of France:
I'm greatly tempted to indulge the venture.
Procurator:
Our country could not afford the risk of such an enterprise.
Frollo:
Columbus! The man is the laughing stock of the Court of Spain.
Louis XI, King of France:
Who knows? The duke may prove Ferdinand's court is the laughing stock.
The King's Physician:
[interjecting for a fourth time]
It's isn't round.
Louis XI, King of France:
What are you mumbling about, doctor?
The King's Physician:
The earth isn't round. It's flat.
Louis XI, King of France:
How do you know?
The King's Physician:
I've observed it in all my travels over Europe - it's flat. Everywhere it's flat!
Louis XI, King of France:
Oh, let's listen to the play.

Transcript:
Well, what's he trying to do? He's heard it rumored that the Earth is round and is attempting to walk to the Indies. - It's not round, it's flat. - The idiot? Some famous geographers and mathematicians also believe the Earth is round. - Isn't round, it's flat. - Do you recollect that letter we had from, uh...? What's his name? Christopher Co... Oh, Christopher Columbus... ...who wrote claiming he could, by steering a westerly course... - ...reach the Indies? - It's flat. I'm greatly tempted to endow the venture. Our country could not afford the risk of such an enterprise. Columbus. Hmm. The man's the laughingstock of the court of Spain. Who knows? The future may prove Ferdinand's court was the laughingstock. - It isn't round. - What are you mumbling about, doctor? - The Earth isn't round. It's flat. - How do you know? I have observed it on all my travels over Europe. Everywhere, it's flat. Oh, let's listen to the play. The old can never last. The new is claiming its place. It's foolish to cling to the past. Believe in the future's face. It pains me to relate that death is the fate of noble and peasant alike. You are born in a womb... And end in a tomb. Clopin's coming. Pennies! Pennies! Pennies! - How's business? - Bad. Bah! - How's business? - Much better if they weren't watching that play. - I'll tend to that. - You'd better. You rest and live and rest again. Beware you do not live in vain. And if you eat too much, you'll throw it up again. You stupid, ignorant drunkards, you. I offer you truth. - We don't want your truth. - No, we don't want it. We will now choose the King of Fools. Applicants come forth. Men, women. The ugliest face wins the crown. Ugly faces! Ugly faces! How do you like his face?
