Saturday night Monty Python party!

This is my favorite Monty Python bit — EVER.

What’s your favorite?  Post a link!  I know I could use a laugh, and I bet you could too.  😆

If you can find the chimps, give them your drink order.  They’ve been completely unmanageable since they got back from the Inauguration celebrations.

  1. I do so love the part in the holy grail where the audacious knight loses limb after limb and still wants more!!!

  2. Monty Python! I LOVE MONY PYTHON’S FLYING CIRCUS. Also known as

    Tony M. Nyphot’s Flying Riscuc

    While I know many of the sketch’s actual names, I love how you can make another fan think of a whole sketch with just one line…

    “I wish to register a complaint.”

    “Evening, Squire…”

    “Look, mate, I never wanted this job…”

  3. Zooey,

    I would be more than happey to bring you your drink if you would be so considerate as to state your inebriating beverage of choice, as well as the requisite quantititty of libations sufficinet to get you in a sufficiently supine position for further wreckcreational activities.

    and I am not too so think as…yes.

    • I shall never forget the first time I saw that scene. It was late at night and I had been up late watching Saturday Night Live (first season?) when they were doing the sketch with Julia Child (Dan Ackroyd) where her knife slips and cuts something off followed by LOTS of blood squirting in every direction. I was grossed out and hysterical at the same time. I flipped the channel and landed on that Monty Python scene with the Black Knight. I watched the entire thing having NO IDEA what I was watching! It was a bizarre night.. I had never seen nor heard of Saturday Night Live either, and really had no idea what I was watching..

  4. “keep ‘em coming until I scream ”

    ummm … ok… not gonna touch that line….


  5. “And then, after you have given us all a spanking, you must give us the oral sex.”


    “But I can take them, there’s only a 150 of them!”

    “No, no, it’s too perilous.”

  6. I think I’ll watch Montey Python clips and get drunk now.

    “And now for something completely different…”

  7. The Upper Middle Class Twit of The Year Contest…

    And the one where Eric Idle starts reading the children’s book that’s not quite what it appears to be…

    “With a melon????”

  8. “In a nutshell! So, I curtailed my Walpoling activities, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles.”

  9. “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!”

    “Bring in… the comfy chair…”

  10. The battle raged long and hard, but as night fell Sidney overcame the Spaniards. 6,000 copies of ‘Tits and Bums’ and 4,000 copies of ‘Shower Sheila’ were seized that day. The tide of Spanish porn was stemmed. Sir Philip Sidney returned to London in triumph.

  11. Interviewer: “Vince, after he nailed your head to the floor, did you ever see him again?”

    Vince: “Yeah…..after that I used to go round his flat every Sunday lunchtime to apologize and we’d shake hands and then he’d nail my head to the floor.”

  12. Commentator: This morning, shortly after eleven o’clock, comedy struck this little house in Dibley Road.

    Sudden… violent… comedy.

    Police have sealed off the area, and Scotland Yard’s crack inspector is with me now.

  13. Cook (shouting): You bastards! You vicious, heartless bastards! Look what you’ve done to him! He’s worked his fingers to the bone to make this place what it is, and you come in with your petty feeble quibbling and you grind him into the dirt, this fine, honourable man, whose boots you are not worthy to kiss. Oh… it makes me mad… mad! (slams cleaver into the table)

  14. Norman: Well I mean like you’ve er…you’ve done it…I mean like, you know…you’ve…er…you’ve slept…with a lady.

    Him: Yes.

    Norman: What’s it like?

  15. I’m afraid that the Ministry of Silly Walks is no longer getting the kind of support it needs. You see there’s Defense, Social Security, Health, Housing, Education, Silly Walks … they’re all supposed to get the same. But last year, the Government spent less on the Ministry of Silly Walks than it did on National Defence. Now we get £348,000,000 a year, which is supposed to be spent on all our available products.

  16. Father: And, er, what job do you do?

    Shabby: I clean out public lavatories.

    Father: Is there promotion involved?

    Shabby: Oh yeah, yeah. (produces handkerchief and cleans throat horribly into it) After five years they give me a brush… eurggha eurgh … I’m sorry squire, I’ve gobbed on your carpet…

  17. Zooey,

    Wink, wink, nudge, nudge is a classic!

    “Evening, Squire.”

    “Good evening.”

    “Tell me, Squire, is your wife a go-er? Eh? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, know what I mean?”

    I suppose I should foreworn people thast I have Volumes I & II of “All The Words”, two books with the scripts of every Monty Python episode.

    I have not consulted them yet tonight. 😉

  18. The Church Police

    “What diocese?”
    “‘ow can you tell?”
    “It’s tattooed on the back of the neck.”
    “Oh, Lord, please tell us, ‘oo killed Leicester.”
    (God) “The one in the braces, ‘e dun it!”
    “Well, it’s a fair cop, but society’s to blame.”
    “Right, we’ll be charging them, too.”

  19. Well… I have the same books…

    And… and… neither have I, Wayne…

    ***big blinking eyes***

    (TRoS crosses his claws behind his back…)

  20. Wayne,
    Maybe you can confirm for me if I am remembering right. Is it “wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, say no more”, or have I got it wrong?

    Am I the only one who gets the British comedies on Saturday nights on PBS? Actually it’s Alabama Public TV, so it may just be my state.

  21. Moi??? Naughty???

    (wiping crumbs off snout… glances sideways at the completely empty buffet table…)

    Ah… it was like that when I got here…

    • Ah hell, polar bear, I expected you to eat all the food — but peeking in your Monty Python book! That’s just wrong!

  22. Keeping Up Appearances
    As Time Goes By (Judi Dench)
    Are You Being Served
    Waiting For God
    To The Manor Born (Penelope Keith)
    Vicar Of Dibley (Dawn French)
    Every Saturday night except during pledge drives, to get donations. Other shows on in the past:
    Good Neighbors
    Red Dwarf (not in a long time)
    Are You Being Served, Again

    I guess Alabama has a few people working at APT with some sense.

    • We only get Are you Being Served. I find that show annoying. Likely because I wish there were better shows available.

  23. Zooey

    — but peeking in your Monty Python book! That’s just wrong!


    (Startled, TRoS looks up from the book he’s flipping thru… once he realizes people are watching, he smiles as he tries to hide the book…)

    Me? heh… just… ah… double-checking Wayne’s quotes… heh… makin’ sure he’s got ’em right…

    Yeah.. that’s it…

    Dang… he’s good… heh…

  24. Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer met in the war and became lovers, then are separated, lose touch, and find each other 38 years later. Both are widowed, and they eventually resume the affair they had started all those years ago. She runs a secretarial service, and he’s an author of a real dull book,”My Life In Kenya”. I know that’s hard to visualize as a comedy, but that’s why Judi Dench is so good. When they cast Judi Dench as “M” in the recent James Bond movies, the first one had her former co-star Palmer as a British Admiral.

  25. Is this the right room for an argument?

    I told you once.

    No, you didn’t.

    Yes, I did.

    You most certainly did not.

    Oh, is this the five-minute argument or the full half-hour?

  26. I’m going to assume that’s the best deal the pageant could get. That used to be a big deal once upon a time…

  27. Just reading the wiki entry, the pageant has been racist, anti-semitic, anti-feminist. I guess it’s reached its anti-relevance.

  28. My kid was watching it earlier but they watch all kinds of freaky reality crap. That’s certainly better than Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends. Well, maybe not.

    • I’m off, y’all. I need to get through a few more chapters of interpersonal conflict, and I’m not getting it done.

      Goodnight all!
