Since the English that was spoken during the 12th century (when this movie took place) is nothing like the English spoken today, use of "untimely" words or phrases is, imo, not a slip up. Restricting the language used only to words & phrases actually in use during the period portrayed would make the dialog all but unintelligible to modern viewers.
