  • One sketch dominates this show that just falls out at average for me.

    5.0
    Not up to the standard of the past few episodes in my opinion. The man turning into scotsman sketch is the focus of the show, and while it had it's funny moments, it just was far too long and drawn out for my liking. I do feel it was well written and quite interesting, but just not as funny as the classic Python sketches we know and love. Outside of the scotsman sketch, there are only a few others, and none of them are really up to standard as being that memorable. So overall an episode that just hits home as average, but even then it's still not too bad.moreless

    • BBC Tennis Commentator: Well, here at Wimbledon it's been a most extraordinary week's tennis. The blancmanges have swept the board winning match after match. Here are just a few of the results: Billie Jean King eaten in straight sets; Laver smothered whole after winning the first set; and Pancho Gonzales, serving as well as I've ever seen him, with some superb volleys and decisive return volleys off the backhand, was sucked through the net at match point and swallowed whole in just under two minutes.

    • Wilkins: Lady Chairman, sir, shareholders, ladies and gentlemen. I have great pleasure in announcing that owing to a cutback on surplus expenditure of twelve million Canadian dollars, plus a refund of seven and a half million Deutschmarks from the Swiss branch, and in addition adding the debenture preference stock of the three and three quarter million to the directors' reserve currency account of seven and a half million, plus an upward expenditure margin of eleven and a half thousand lira, due to a rise in capital investment of ten million pounds, this firm last year made a complete profit of a shilling.
      Chairman: A shilling, Wilkins?
      Wilkins: Uh, roughly, yes sir.
      Chairman: Wilkins, I am the chairman of a multi-million pound corporation and you are a very new chartered accountant. Isn't it possible there may have been some mistake?
      Wilkins: Well, that's very kind of you sir, but I don't think I'm ready to be Chairman yet.

    • Eric Idle: And now here is a reminder about leaving your radio on during the night. Leave your radio on during the night.
