Arthur is a pretty bad farmer who, the teacher is right, swears every time his tractor breaks down. In the background, without his noticing, a dragon threatens a princess, and a prince intervenes to save her. As he does, Arthur realizes he needs tools to fix his tractor, so he borrows the prince's sword, the dragon's fire, and the princess's scarf.
Then he suddenly realizes there is a fair maiden behind him, and he starts hitting on her.
Without her uttering but three sentences, she accepts his proposal to live on his farm forever, and the prince and the dragon disappear as the sun sets and the new couple sits on Arthur's tractor together.
