Three scenes from the surprisingly well-researched Astérix series with the best known running jokes.
- Obélix loves the taste of the druid's magic potion, but he doesn't need it. He fell into a pot when he was small. When the Romans march against the village, everyone gets the magic potion. Obélix will always try to get some in the hurry and he is always spotted.
- When the terrified Romans show themselves, Obélix mood improves markedly and he invariably says "Chique! Des Romains!" Fortified by the magic potion, the village attacks. Somewhere along the line, the chief will fall from his shield...
- At the end of the story, all problems are forgotten and the village feasts on large heaps of food. The bard is not allowed to start new acrimony with his horrible songs. He and is harp are strung up in a tree.
