Subject: BS: Monty python quotes
From: skipy
Date: 07 Nov 04 - 08:19 PM

Monty Python is now 30+ years old, but still we hear quotes from the shows several times a week, or is it just that I hang around with sad poeple?

Use this thread to report Python quotes that you hear during this week, if we don't hear any then the thread will drift to the bottom of the list & die.

Today a friend of mine said "Fear, pain, & surprise"

Alan Titchmarsh, in his latest TV natural history extravaganza, talked about "The Mighty Scots Pine."

Said by my daughter this very morning on school run (and for no particular reason I could fathom): "Bad Zoot ! Wicked Zoot ! Naughty Zoot !"

I'll listen out for more quotes this week, skipy - I'm sure there'll be some. As you say, so many of their expressions have become common parlance. It's interesting that first generation Python watchers are passing on a love of the Python humour and expressions etc. to the next lot.

Of the comdey around at the moment, it is phrases from "Little Britain" that I'm hearing most often (in our household, at least) e.g. "I'm a laydy", "If you ask me on a Monday, I'd say yase..."

My daughter does the "hamster/elderberry" one a lot. I'll have to see if she says it this week.

For Skipy's "learned research" (as in the first post here) it would be good if people added who they had heard using the Python quotes this week and in what context. Very interesting (...aah...but that was another show entirely !)

Not a lot of people know this, but Terry Jones is known to sing folk songs from time to time, and I have recordings to prove it. I appreciate that this is not a quote from Monty Python, but it does tie the thread to Mudcat a little more closely.

I work in an office at the Department of National Defence. These lines come up frequently, sometimes even out loud.

"I seem to have come over all esurient." At lunch-time, any given lunch-time.

Actually the French Knight (I fart in your general direction!) scene has a weird link to reality - the English were besieging a certain French castle which ran out of food, except of bread, cheese and garlic. In the tradition in the village today, allegedly the smell of the French Farts was so bad it drove the English away....

HAW!! This one allus meks me larf and larf. From memory, it goes....

Sir Bedevere : There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.
Peasant 1 : Are there? Oh well, tell us.
Sir Bedevere : Tell me. What do you do with witches?
Peasant 1 : Burn them.
Sir Bedevere : And what do you burn, apart from witches?
Peasant 1 : More witches.
Peasant 2 : Wood.
Sir Bedevere : Good. Now, why do witches burn?
Peasant 3 : ...because they're made of... wood?
Sir Bedevere : Good. So how do you tell whether she is made of wood?
Peasant 1 : Build a bridge out of her.
Sir Bedevere : But can you not also build bridges out of stone?
Peasant 1 : Oh yeah.
Sir Bedevere : Does wood sink in water?
Peasant 1 : No, no, it floats!... It floats! Throw her into the pond!
Sir Bedevere : No, no. What else floats in water?
Peasant 1 : Bread.
Peasant 2 : Apples.
Peasant 3 : Very small rocks.
Peasant 1 : Cider.
Peasant 2 : Gravy.
Peasant 3 : Cherries.
Peasant 1 : Mud.
Peasant 2 : Churches.
Peasant 3 : Lead! Lead!
King Arthur : A Duck.
Sir Bedevere : ...Exactly. So, logically...
Peasant 1 : If she weighed the same as a duck... she's made of wood.
Sir Bedevere : And therefore...
Peasant 2 : ...A witch!

Well, the word "spam" itself – used to refer to unwanted e-mail messages – originated out of references to the Spam Sketch, so any time you hear the word "spam" used in that way, it's a Python reference (although rarely a conscious one).

The following is not a recent sighting, but it's so good I have to share it: Punt & Dennis on their Radio 4 programme "The Now Show" were discussing the takeover of the Abbey National (a major chain of banks) by Spain's Banco Sant Andere, giving rise to the comment (all together now!) "Nobody expects the Spanish Acquisition!"

I laughed out loud. Those guys are brilliant!

Yorkshire Yankee, the Spanish bank in question was actually the "Banco Santander", but this doesn't spoil the joke.

While serving behind a bar the Sunday after the show, I saw two of my friends being bored to tears as someone pontificated about the takeover. I copied the same line. My friends spat beer through their noses. The self-opinionated one later tried to tell me (unsuccessfully) to know my place.

If I have a favourite Python sketch (as opposed to single quote) it is John Cleese correcting Graham Chapman's latin graffiti in "Life of Brian". To appreciate the full humour of the sketch, one had to have had Latin inflicted on one as a subject at a Grammar or Public school, which I why I was rolling about on the floor of the cinema where I first saw the film, while everyone else stared at me and wondered what institution I had escaped from.

Python came out with many quotes which aren't funny in themselves, but remind many of the unforgettable sketches. Even the sketches sometimes were made memorable by Python's inspired continuity.

Does Yorkshire Yankee or anyone else know the date of the joke by Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis about the Spanish Acquisition (ie of the Abbey National Building Society by the Bank of Santander)?

I am interested because I thought of the exact same joke on 26th July 2004 after seeing a TV program that evening about the takeover; I mentioned this joke in a private E-mail on 27th July and another one to a different person on 2nd September 2004 (in the latter I said "Remember you heard it here first").

Honestly folks, this isn't a boast about what a great originator of jokes I am (HE SAID MODESTLY!), but am genuinely curious as to how quickly different people think of something like this and how quickly it circulates. I remember thinking at the time that it would probably be a very short time before a headline like "Nobody expects the Spanish Acquisition" appeared in a newspaper. I did an Internet search for "Spanish Acquisition at that time" and though I got some "hits" I didn't get in the above form.

If you are aware of one of Monty Pythons most famous sketches then this is a very obvious pun.

Strangely, no individual "Monty Python" quote seems to be all that common, although "Don't mention the war" by ex Python John Cleese in the Fawlty Towers Episode about the Germans is certainly heard quite often. I also like Basil Fawlty's phrase "I'm so sorry, he's from Barcelona" and (Basil Fawlty to Manuel) "(Do?)You have rats in Spain, or did Franco have them all shot?"

One of my own genuine Python favourites is "The Polar Bear's escaped", delivered in a high pitch voice, though I haven't actually heard anyone else use it. There was also a Pythonesque interview featuring the late Graham Chapman as a Government Minister":

Interviewer (possibly Eric Idle or Michael Palin): "Minister, in your manisfesto, you promised to build over 10 million houses(or some preposterous figure) in the Greater London area alone; you have in fact built only three. How do you answer this?"
Minister: "I'd like to answer this question, if I may, in 2 ways. First of all in my normal voice, and secondly, using a kind of silly high-pitched squeak".

John Cleese's father was originally called John Cheese, but changed it to Cleese in the Army in 1915 to avoid being teased (I would have thought being teased in the Army in 1915 was the least of your worries as this was in the middle of World War One. Pity though he changed it, this would have made his son John a "big Cheese" (geddit?)

Cleese himself regrets the name change and thinks it would be good to be called Jack Cheese (his wife calls him Jack). He has also traced the surname Cheese to Norwich in 1273, though Cleese himself came from Weston Super Mare in Somerset at the other end of England.

Dear Guest, I believe that the "Spanish Acquisistion" line came in the last episode of the Punt and Dennis series before the currect series of the "News Quiz" (which itself has just finished).

If I am right, it was therefore broadcast on October 7th. (Friday) I may be out by a week or so, but I doubt whether it was broadcast before October 1st.

WINE EXPERT:
    A lot of people in this country pooh-pooh Australian table wines. This is a pity as many fine Australian wines appeal not only to the Australian palate but also to the cognoscenti of Great Britain.

    Black Stump Bordeaux is rightly praised as a peppermint flavoured Burgundy, whilst a good Sydney Syrup can rank with any of the world's best sugary wines.

    Château Blue, too, has won many prizes; not least for its taste, and its lingering afterburn.

    Old Smokey 1968 has been compared favourably to a Welsh claret, whilst the Australian Wino Society thoroughly recommends a 1970 Coq du Rod Laver, which, believe me, has a kick on it like a mule: eight bottles of this and you're really finished. At the opening of the Sydney Bridge Club, they were fishing them out of the main sewers every half an hour.

    Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is Perth Pink. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is 'beware'. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

    Another good fighting wine is Melbourne Old-and-Yellow, which is particularly heavy and should be used only for hand-to-hand combat.

    Quite the reverse is true of Château Chunder, which is an appellation contrôlée, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation; a fine wine which really opens up the sluices at both ends.

    Real emetic fans will also go for a Hobart Muddy, and a prize winning Cuivre Reserve Château Bottled Nuit San Wogga Wogga, which has a bouquet like an aborigine's armpit.
