If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

[hearts] A not well known but very good reason to love Monty Python is thier incredible cuteness and sexiness!

John Cleese - tall, with great legs and eyes
Eric Idle - cute, thin, and classy
Michael Palin - Soooo adorbale, nice guy
Graham Chapman - tall, blond, blue eyes
Terry Jones - plump and cute, cool eyebrows
Terry Gilliam - ...eh, he's American.

I'm surprised no one mentioned The Lumberjack Song, The Spam Vikings and The Parrot Sketch.

Edit: My mistake a few of you mentioned the parrot sketch.

As I was browsing I suddenly remembered The Lumberjack Song but I was beaten to it.

There's an Australian University Club sketch where everyone is named Bruce. EDIT: Ugh! I think mentions it as "No poofdahs"

"Look on the bright side of life" (/whistle)

I met Graham Chapman once. In person he was a very serious, and rather intense person. The conversation was excellent and as I remember it, ranged over gay rights, the Supremes, John Betjeman, cocaine, and amateur astronomy among other things. He was a very considerate and generous host, and not at all puffed up. A good man, sadly missed.

The "Bruces" song...(from memory - I had the LP)

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable.
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table.
David Hume could out consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel.
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as sloshed as Schlegel.
There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach
About the raising of the wrist.
Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed.
John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.
Plato, they say, could pack it away,
Half a crate of whisky every day.
Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle.
Hobbes was fond of his dram,
And René Descartes was a drunken fart,
I drink, therefore I am.
Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed,
A lovely little thinker,
But a bugger when he's pissed.

I've got two legs
From my hips to the ground,
And when I move them,
They walk around.
When I lift them,
They climb the stairs,
And when I shave them,
They ain't got hairs.


Anyone mention the Blancmange or the deadly joke?

"What, you been shopping then?"
"Nope ... I've been shopping!"
"What d'you buy?"
"A piston engine!"
"What d'you buy that for?"
"It was a bargain!"
"How much d'you want for it?"
"Three quid!"
"Done." (She counts out the money)
"Right. Thank you."
"How d'you cook it?"
"You don't cook it."
"You can't eat that raw!"
"Ooooh ... never thought of that. Oh, day and night, but this is wondrous strange . . ."
". . . and therefore is a stranger welcome it. There are more things in Heaven and Earth Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. But come, the time is out of joint. Oh cursed spite, that ever I was born to set it right. Let's go together."

My favorite sketch, up there with the Jean-Paul Sartre sketch about the women in the landromat who walk to France to meet him to clarify the meaning of one of his works.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
In them days we was glad to have the price of a cup o' tea.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
A cup o' cold tea.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Without milk or sugar.
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Or tea.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
In a cracked cup, an' all.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Oh, we never had a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
The best we could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Because we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't buy you happiness, son".

--------------------
I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Right, now self defense. Tonight I shall be carrying on from where I left you last week when I was showing you how to defend yourself against anyone who attacks armed with a piece of fresh fruit.

You promised you wouldn't do fruit this week.

What do you mean?

Well we done fresh fruit last nine weeks.

What's wrong with fruit? You think you know it all eh?

Can't we do something else for a change?

Like someone attacks you with a pointed stick?

A pointed stick? Oh oh oh we want to learn how to defend ourselves against against pointed sticks do we? Getting all high and mighty eh? Fresh fruit not good enough for you eh? Oh oh oh oh well I'll tell you something my lads. When you're walking out in the night and some homicidal maniac comes after you with a bunch of lingonberries don't come crying to me.
