Alan Bennett:[dictating a telegram into the telephone] I want to end it if I may, "NORWICH".
Alan Bennett:"NORWICH", yes. Well, it's an idiomatic way of saying, "Knickers Off Ready When I Come Home". You see, it's the initial letters of each word.
Alan Bennett:Yes, I know "knickers" is spelt with a "K". I was at Oxford, it was one of the first things they taught us.

Not bad, not fantastic, 30 January 1999
Author: Kris Earle from Boston, MA

There are some very funny bits in this video, which I just picked up recently to add to the Python collection. Most notably, the Pope meets Michaelangelo sketch, the Peter Cook sketch, and one where a guy moves his fingers around (not sure who he was). But some of the stuff is incredibly dated - the stupid song about a monkey and the over-used "guy dressed as a woman - isn't this funny" sketch was goes too-long. Also, I wondered where Python member ERIC IDLE was... How many more times do we need the parrot sketch and the lumberjack song - they are great, but for a python fan it's a rental not something to buy like I did. 6 1/2 of/10.

"Why in God's name did you paint THREE Christs?" "Well the fat one in the middle balances out the two skinny ones, doesn't he?"
