Quotes

John Cleese: I hid in his room once. We got in from filming in Jersey and I was in the first car and they gave the key and I went up and I said it wasn't for my room it was for Michael's which was next door. So unlocked his door and I got the key and I thought I could take advantage of this so I went into his room and put the lights on and took a look around and there was a dressing table in the corner. So I got behind it and um, having turned the lights off, Michael came in...
Michael Palin: As it was my room. You know, ...

Glad to See Eddie Izzard in the Intro...
27 November 2001 | by librariaSee all my reviews

I love Monty Python, like many Americans, but I was glad to see relative newcomer Eddie Izzard worked into the intro ('Python Imposter'). Who was it, please, who threw something at him as he was leaving the stage? Ahem! Anyway, it was a charming bit they conceived for him and I only wished there could have been more time for Eddie (it was supposed to be a retrospective for the Python Players; I know, I know...) I figured this was the reason, at least in part, that he was in Aspen in 1998 - as he mentioned in his 1998 show 'Dress to Kill'. Deductive reasoning!
