Quote Reverend Belling aka Graham:
"You know, there are many people in the country today who, through no fault of their own, are sane.(...) It is up to people like you and me who are out of our tiny little minds to try and help these people overcome their sanity.(...)and then you can roll around the floor going PTING PTING PTING..."
Absolutely love that!!! Hahahahahhahhahhahhhhaaa!!!

I must warn you that I have with me police dog Josephine who is not only a trained in sniffing certain substancees but is also a junkie.
... or something like that...
Rest in peace, Graham.

I just thought I would revive this old post! It's hard for me to decide a second to Michael. I admire them each for different reasons. Terry J. because he is so passionate about everything he does, and so animated; Graham because he is just fantastic in every movie and show, and such an interesting mysterious person; Eric because I love his laugh and I think he is incredibly talented and funny; Terry G. because his animations and movies are like nothing else; and John because no one can rant like him. I have come to admire John even more being a member of his website. I did not know what an animal lover he was! Anyway, I don't want to pick a second, they're all fab!

When I started watchin Monty Python, my brother and I spent some time trying to figure out who was who. We could recognise John Cleese from Fawlty Towers, which our PBS station was showing at about the same time. Eric Idle is referred to by name in a few episodes and was distinctive looking enough to be recognised. I think that one of the reasons first-time Python viewers are drawn to him because he's the first one they can consistently identify. I didn't know which one was Michael Palin until I saw "Brazil", and I couldn't have told you the tall blond one was Graham Chapman until the press items on his death.

Hmmmmmmm....from what I've seen I love them as a combination! (sitting on the fence).

My fave film is 'Life of Brian' and I always crack up at the bit where Palin is an ex-leper, "What I was thinking was, I was going to ask him if he could make me a bit lame in one leg during the middle of the week. You know, something beggable, but not leprosy, which is a pain in the arse, to be blunt. Excuse my French, sir, but, uh...". He's jumping around like a loony who's had too much Sunny Delight!

The BEST bit is the stoning by the 'women' pretending to be men:

I'm warning you. If you say 'Jehovah' once more--
[MRS. A. stones OFFICIAL]
Right. Who threw that?
Come on. Who threw that?
CROWD: She did! It was her! He! He. Him. Him. Him. Him. Him. Him.

Their voices are ridiculous and when John Cleese is stoned...I end up on the floor laughing!

Palin is probably my fave as he has a subtlety about his performance that gets me laughing every time...I love the indignant Pontius Pilate, "I will not have my fwiends widiculed by the common soldiewy. Anybody else feel like a little... giggle... when I mention my fwiend... Biggus?"...*snigger, snigger*!!

I would have to say Mr.Cleese :) Although having said that, its a very close call between all of them really. :)

Id choose Terry Jones, because he is always in the really stupidly silly sketches and because he is (was) almost as gorgeous as Michael!!
