Trivia

The "Dead Parrot Sketch" was based, in part, on a drama school exercise/game in which two actors improvised dialogue, the object of which was for one participant to try to get the other to repeat a line without himself repeating. The first person to repeat is the "loser" of the game. Tom Stoppard, in his Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (1990) featured a more elaborate version of this exercise which is cited in the quotes section for that movie. See more »

Goofs

When the Hell's grannies remove the telephone booth, there are no electrical wires connected to the booth, just a flat wooden board on the base of the booth. Had it been a real telephone booth, it would have been harder to remove. See more »

Quotes

Private Watkins: I'd like to leave the Army please, sir.
The Colonel: Good heavens man, why?
Private Watkins: It's dangerous!
