Trivia

In the opening sketch, where the cast are dressed as ladies running around threatening slow laborers and censoring "obscene" art, they are all wearing armbands with the letters PP, meaning "Pepperpots," the Monty Python troop's affectionate label for their old lady characters. See more »

Quotes

Sir John Cunningham: May I take this opportunity of emphasizing that there is no cannibalism in the British Navy, absolutely none. And when I say none, I mean there is a certain amount, more than I personally admit. But, all new Ratings are warned that if they wake up in the morning and find any toothmarks at all anywhere on their bodies, they are to tell me immediately so that I can immediately take every measure to hush the whole thing up. And finally, necrophilia is right out.
