"She's a witch!!"
"How do you know she is a witch?"
"She turned me into a newt! Well... I got better." *shrugs*

Best movie ever!!

"And what else do you burn besides witches?"

"More witches!"

Did anyone see Spamalot? It's so funny!

"God's all-knowing, and he misplaced a cup?!" I just love it!

The Holy Grail is brilliant! I saw it years ago, and I recently bought it on DVD. Makes me laugh every single time!

I really want to go and see Spamalot!!

Monty Python rocks! My friends think I'm weird because I like it, but oh well! I like Star Wars and AD&D (the 80's version) too so they already know I'm an uber-nerd.

The killer rabbit has got to be the best part. That bunny is so cute; do you know anyone who can sell me a killer rabbit? I could set it loose on the neighbors (who think that Harry Potter is evil :elaugh:)!!!

Best bit:

"They have brought forth juniper berries"
"Of course they brought forth juniper berries their juniper bushes!"
:lol:

God: What are you doing now?
King Arthur: Averting our eyes, oh Lord.
God: Well, don't. It's just like those miserable psalms, always so depressing. Now knock it off!
God: Every time I try to talk to someone it's "sorry this" and "forgive me that" and "I'm not worthy"...

That and: "We are now the Knights who say...”Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-Ekki-PTANG. Zoom-Boing. Z'nourrwringmm."

Seriously, anything said in that movie is pretty much hilarious and applicable to any random, daily quotations.

It absolutely is. But by all the memorable quotes (actually coming from all their movies and shows), I also love the serious background, an view on society which shows a big amount of detecting what wents wrong - and what is rather funny already in daily life.

What would happen if you put monty python and little britain together? I think you would get Mr. Mann walking into a pet shop and saying: "Hello I'd like to buy a dead parrot please."
Seriously Python are god. Lumberjacks, Dead parrots, How not to be seen, The upperclass twit of the year contest, The four yorkshiremen, and the Michalangelo sketch ("What possesed you to paint three Christs!" "Well, the fat one balances out the two skinny ones") and the dancing teeth.
Holy grail is good to, the french taunter is my favorite. although the Black knight is good too ("What you gonna do, bleed on me?)
Life of Brian (He says the birds are scrounging).
And meaning of life, though not as good as the others still has "Can we have your liver?" and the machine that goes Bing!
So many good monents. I've just scratched the surface.

Re: Monty Python
 
Holy Grail is definitely the best of the movies. I loved the witch trial, and the prince's father forcing him to marry. "When I built this castle, there was nothing but swamp. People said I was daft to build a castle in a swamp. But I showed em. I built it here all the same. It sank into the swamp. Then I built a second castle. That one sank into the swamp. Then I built a third castle. That one burned down, fell over, and then sank into the swamp. Ah, but the fourth castle, that one stayed up. And that's what you'll be getting. The strongest castle in all the land."

My favorite sketches are:

Self-Defense Against Fresh Fruit
Spot the Loony
Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook
Barber/Lumberjack Song
Dead Parrot
Semprini/Aftershave
Silly Job Interview

What does that mean?
He must have died while carving it.

Am I the only one picturing Bill & Fleur's wedding, Fleur's father showing up and acting like the rude Frenchman? :lol:

Re: Monty Python
 
Love Python! My favortie movie is "Life of Brian". "yes, we are all individuals"

And the sketchs, too. Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson. Lumberjack Sketch. Argument clinic. ooo, and the Spanish Inquisition sketch. One of my favorites.

Has anyone read their book? they wrote it similar to that huge Beatles book that came out 7-8 years ago where they were all interviewed, although they took Graham Chapman's comments from earlier interviews. It's really interesting.

Yeah I have that! When Michael Palin came to Australia a few years ago to promote Himalaya I went to a lunch/book signing, took my The Pythons autobiography along and waited in line for over an hour until he signed it :D
It's cool, he crossed out the 'Y' in Autobiography and wrote in 'Ni!' instead :lol:

I HATE YOU :( lucky...... michael palin is my favourite python, definitely. I'll never look at lumberjacks the same. "Ni" xDDDD

I have the huge red python book! its actually awesome.. literally. they've got tons of pictures and a LOT of text. i managed to read it all tho my eyes nearly fell out... especially because the font is tiny. what i liked best about it was the pythons' pictures when they were younger.

Holy grail was my favourite even tho Life of Brian and Meaning of life were really excellent too. For some reason, the teacher showed holy grail in english class once, and i was the only one rolling about laughing T_T

After i discovered python i kept walking around saying "nobody expects the spanish inquisition!" and "we are the knights who say... NI" for some time .. :P

Re: Monty Python
 
The Spanish Inquisition, The Department of Silly Walks, Life on Brian, Holy Grail, Faulty Towers....woopse, sorry not Monty Python..but close.
Anyone thought why they used 'The Liberty-Bell March' as their theme? I thought the reason was, cause they were both 'cracked'!

Ah! cool. I found The Brand New Monty Python Paperbok in an op-shop one day, near perfect condition, all of the lift-outs still in it and everything.

Has anybody else seen the 'lost' German episodes?

You just gave me the best visuals. I thank you. x]

My brother, mother, and I can quote almost any part of this movie on command - and do it quite often. Just last week he and I were singing the Brave Sir Robin song in the car. Good times - and one of the best movies, ever - period.
