      • The one scene Terry Jones and Michael Palin discuss most often when asked about The Complete and Utter History of Britain is the post-Battle of Hastings interview Jones holds with the victorious Normans:


        JONES: When were you sure you were going to win?


        PALIN (as the Norman): Well, you can never be sure of a thing like that, David, but I must say I was pretty confident halfway through the second half, when they were 2,000 down.


        JONES: Now what about that incident?


        PALIN: Oh, you mean when Harold was knocked down? (Normans laugh; Palin quiets them) Well, that was a very nasty business, David, and we're all very sorry about it. But I think it was fair. They certainly gave our lads a bit of a laugh. (Normans laugh)
