Quote
And now for something completely different
It's just a flesh wound
Bring out yer dead
I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay. I sleep all night and I work all day
Every sperm is sacred
Well, she turned me into a newt!
A newt?
I got better
You've got two empty halves of coconut and you're bangin' 'em together
Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government
What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow
We are the Knights who say... NI
You must return here with a shrubbery or else ... you shall not pass through this wood alive!
You must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest... with... a herring
If she weighed the same as a duck... she's made of wood
And therefore...
...A witch!
This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition
And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint.

10 of 16 from Holy Grail?? Could use a little diversification--How to Irritate People is surprisingly unrepresented here!

I'm pretty sure the quote is "with this herring" rather than 'with a herring'.

No, its with a herring, sadly I've seen the movie way too many times to not know that.

A Monty Python quiz! My neeples explode with delight! Probably should have one for Holy Grail, one for Flying Circus, and one for Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life. Also, I was wondering, do you have any cheese at all?

No, 'it's just a flesh wound' is fine, you're thinking of 'tis but a scratch.

Great quiz, but could you accept different spellings of Ni e.g. Ne or Nee ?

Slight over-reliance on the films, but I guess that's how most people come into contact with Python, since the original shows are rarely broadcast these days.

Whilst I remembered it was a fish, it took me a while to work out what kind. Though herring seems fairly obvious in retrospect.

Obvious? Surely not. That's the whole point of Python to me. It's so (as the kids say these days) random!

I don't know about anyone else, but "Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords" is sounding pretty good as a system of government these days...

Eh, It's too Holy Grail centric; either make the whole quiz about the Holy Grail and change the title or add some more questions not about the Holy Grail.

Extreme curmugeonly amount Life of Brian, very little Meaning of Life. Other than that damned good quiz, could have done with a blancmange at Wimbledon here and the world's deadliest joke there though. I mean, blessed are the cheesemakers.
