Random Python quote...I think by Des583 on 18 July 2003 6:07am
 
I was thinking of this quote and I think its from some type of python show/movie but I cannot for the life of me think of what it is and its driving me mad :) is "make with the funny things" in some sort of accent. If anyone can think of what I'm talking about please for my sanity let me know :)

I believe that is from the "Confuse a Cat" sketch... but I think the whole quote is actually,"get into the van.. and fetch out the funny things!"
(hup 2 hup2 get those funny things OFF)
It was bellowed expertly by The Man himself.
Is this the one?

Confuse-A-Cat! Yay, one of my favorites!

It is my favorite sketch--- the Spanish Inquistion runs a VERY close second.
Of course, ALL of the sketches are great...
But I love MP in Confuse a Cat--- he bellows, cracks his voice, marches, salutes, plays Napoleon sharing the stage with a penguin-- brilliant!
Of course, Eric Idle in a towel is always nice.
And Cleese-- that bugsh*t lad!! I just love him in that sketch as well...He plays a droll colonel as good as Graham.
Right... Confuse the..... Cat.

If you have the Eric Idle Exploits Monty Python CD, he says "Make with the funny things" in a German accent when talking about how he and John Cleese ended up writing the Eric a Half-a-Bee sketch. The full quote was "The Germans came to us sometime in the mid-seventies and said to us, 'We are very good at many things, but alas, we do not have a sense of humor. So will you Python people please come to Germany and make with the funny things.'"
