Quotes

Dayna Devon: So, is there one thing you'd like to be remembered by?
John Cleese: Well yes, there is one, you know. Um, when I'm gone, I'd like my friends to say, "You know, Old Cleesey had his faults, buy he did have the most enormous dick."

Another trip down memory lane with the Pythons.
11 June 2006 | by alonzobalexanderSee all my reviews

A fine piece of work this Monty Python sketch show was! I enjoyed reminiscing with the boys, even if each piece was only an hour long. They probably could have stretched it out for two hours apiece. The way each Python approached their episode differently was especially interesting. I loved John Cleese's the most. Having himself be a senile old man married to a young, beautiful, exotic woman--who hates his guts--was great. Mention the girl, I'd never seen her before, and through a little internet searching I've found the girl who played John Cleese's wife Suki on his episode of Personal Best is actually a track star at UC Santa Barbara(where they filmed it) named Gilleon Smith. She does 100 meter, long jump, and triple jump! She's only a sophomore, and she's beautiful! You can tell she's athletic. I hope she decides to find more acting jobs in the future! Until then, I guess I'll have to keep watching John Cleese's Personal Best.
