The townsmen believe the lady is a witch because she is dressed as one, and Sir Bedevere asks them a series of questions to help them determine whether or not she is really a witch.

I used this clip as an introduction to the logic and reasoning unit of my high school geometry class. I used it to demonstrate inductive reasoning, conjecture, and counterexample - perhaps a very good example of very bad logic.
