Monty Python's Life of Brian (1979) Poster

Sue Jones-Davies: Judith



  • Judith : [on Stan's desire to be a mother]  Here! I've got an idea: Suppose you agree that he can't actually have babies, not having a womb - which is nobody's fault, not even the Romans' - but that he can have the *right* to have babies.

    Francis : Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother... sister, sorry.

    Reg : What's the *point*?

    Francis : What?

    Reg : What's the point of fighting for his right to have babies, when he can't have babies?

    Francis : It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.

    Reg : It's symbolic of his struggle against reality.

  • Francis : Why are you always on about women, Stan?

    Stan : I want to be one.

    Reg : What?

    Stan : I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me 'Loretta'.

    Reg : What?

    Stan : It's my right as a man.

    Judith : Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?

    Stan : I want to have babies.

    Reg : You want to have babies?

    Stan : It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them.

    Reg : But... you can't have babies!

    Stan : Don't you oppress me!

    Reg : I'm not oppressing you, Stan! You haven't got a womb! Where's the foetus going to gestate? You going to keep it in a box?

    Stan : [starts to cry]
