ARTHUR: The Castle Aggh. Our quest is at an end! God be praised!
Almighty God, we thank Thee that Thou hast [something] safe
[something] the most-
[twong baaaa]
Jesus Christ!

GUARD: 'Allo, daffy English kaniggets and Monsieur Arthur-King, who
is afraid of a duck, you know! So, we French fellows out-wit you a
second time!

ARTHUR: How dare you profane this place with your presence!? I command
you, in the name of the Knights of Camelot, to open the doors of this
sacred castle, to which God himself has guided us!

GUARD: How you English say, I one more time-a unclog my nose in your
direction, sons of a window-dresser! So, you think you could
out-clever us French folk with your silly knees-bent running about
advancing behavior! I wave my private parts at your aunties, you
heaving lot of second-hand electric donkey bottom biters.

ARTHUR: In the name of the Lord, we demand entrance to this sacred
castle!

GUARD: No chance, English bedwetting types. I burst my pimples at you
and call your daughter an unrequested silly thing. You tiny-brained
wipers of other people's bottoms!

ARTHUR: If you do not open this door, we shall take this castle by
force!
[splat]
In the name of God and the glory of our--
[splat]
Right! That settles it!

GUARD: Yes, this time and try
any more or we fire arrows at the tops of your heads
and make castanets out of your testicles already! Ha ha!

ARTHUR: Walk away. Just ignore them.

GUARD: No, remain you illegitimate faced buggerfuls! And, if you think
you got nasty taunting this time, you ain't heard nothing yet! Daffy
English kaniggets! Thpppt!

ARTHUR: We shall attack at once!
BEDEMIR: Yes, my liege!
ARTHUR: Stand by for attack!

All of the Life of Brian...totally brilliant.
And The meaning of Life is equally superb. The man being chased to his death by topless beauties in g-strings...the slow motion bit....ah what more can one say.:)

It's been awhile, but after the dark night has been totally destroyed in their Arthur tale, he keeps taunting, "Com'on, I'm ready. The retort is, "What'cha going to do, bleed on me?"

I'm not a "fan" there's much I haven't seen, but they were a very funny troupe.

This dialog in Life of Brian:
"Suicide Squad Leader: We are the Judean People's Front crack suicide squad! Suicide squad, attack!
[they all stab themselves]
Suicide Squad Leader: That showed 'em, huh?
and the 'sacred sandal' moment. But really there was way too much brilliant satire to remember it all.

Monty Python: Oh Lord! You Are So Big! :d:d:d:d


next comes ,

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.
So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of ****
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

Spectator I: I think it was "Blessed are the cheesemakers".
Mrs. Gregory: Aha, what's so special about the cheesemakers?
Gregory: Well, obviously it's not meant to be taken literally; it refers to any manufacturers of dairy products.

I don't think I could pick just one, but speaking of Castle Anthrax... Oystagirl used to be part-owner of a house where she lived with several other women of university age and diversity. During a fit of silliness someone dubbed the place "Castle Anthrax", so I made her a Grail-Shaped Beacon that was placed in the third-floor window facing the street and lit for big parties. :D

Having known Spike and supped a few times at his mum's place then the atmosphere was "interesting".

BTW another I knew (Joe Kramey) wrote for "Idiots Weekly". They were both "in character".

I'm trying to find the one where a well-spoken young man, who has put a squadron of police on crutches, apologizes for his "petty atrocities" and demands harsh punishment, but the court just likes him so well, they won't even give him prison time and the police in their bandages and casts sing "he's a jolly good fellow." Anybody have a clue what that skit is called?

The interview with the group some months after Graham's death when they brought 'his ashes' out on stage and during the interview one of them kicked the coffee table the urn was sitting on (hard) so that the ashes spilled all over everywhere with the urn bouncing into the audience. I think one of them went offstage to get a dust-buster to 'scoop him up' while the others were sneezing. Just so wrong, but so hilarious.
