Monty Python's Life of Brian (1979)
John Young: Matthias, Son of Deuteronomy of Gath
Matthias : Look, I don't think it ought to be blasphemy, just saying "Jehovah".
Jewish Official : You're only making it worse for yourself!
Matthias : Making it worse? How could it be worse? Jehovah! Jehovah! Jehovah!
Jewish Official : I'm warning you! If you say "Jehovah" once more...
[Gets hit with a rock]
Jewish Official : Right! Who threw that? Come on, who threw that?
Stoners : She did! She!
[Suddenly speaking as men]
Stoners : Him! Him. Him.
Jewish Official : Was it you?
Stoner : Yes.
Jewish Official : Right...
Stoner : Well you did say "Jehovah".
[Crowd throws rocks at the stoner]
Jewish Official : Stop it! Stop! Stop, will you... stop that!
Jewish Official : Stop it! Now look: no one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle, do you understand? Even - and I want to make this absolutely clear - even if they do say "Jehovah".
[Crowd stones the Jewish Official to death]
Stoners : Gotcha!
Centurion : You know the penalty laid down by Roman law for harboring a known criminal?
Matthias : No.
Centurion : Crucifixion!
Matthias : Oh.
Centurion : Nasty, eh?
Matthias : Could be worse.
Centurion : What you mean "Could be worse"?
Matthias : Well, you could be stabbed.
Centurion : Stabbed? Takes a second. Crucifixion lasts hours. It's a slow, horrible death.
Matthias : Well, at least it gets you out in the open air.
Centurion : You're weird!
Matthias : [Answering the summons of the door] My legs are old and bent, my ears are grizzled, yes?
Centurion : There's one place we didn't look. Guards!
[the guards troop into the house]
Matthias : ...Nose is knackered.
Centurion : Have you ever seen anyone crucified?
Matthias : Crucifixion's a doddle.
Centurion : ...Don't keep saying that.
Lead Search Guard : [Guards troop out, last guard pauses] Found this spoon, sir.
Centurion : Well done, Sergeant!
Centurion : We'll be back... Oddball...
Matthias : All I did was say to my wife, "That piece of halibut was good enough for Jehovah!"
