My favourite Python Sketch has to be "The Bishop!!",
It starts off with Eric Idle trying to buy Car Insurance from Micheal Palin for his Aston Martin, and as Palin begins to act suspiciously, he gets busted by "The Bishop!!", what follows is an introduction to a Seventies Style 'Cop Show' called... "The Bishop!!".. stood the test of time that one, still makes me laugh

Probably the funniest/deadliest joke in the world. Used as a weapon during the war. So funny each translator only got one word to translate.

Either that or the Amnesia one, or possibly the defence against attack with fruit sketch "A pointed stick!!!!"

I like the “constitutional peasant” from MP and the Holy Grail.

“Now we see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help. I'm being repressed!”

Definately a legendary piece.

Personally, I think Tim the enchanter is a work of genius and does anyone remember the name of the man who attempted (amongst other things) to jump the English Channel carrying half a hundred weight of bricks. His manager was one of the piranha brothers.

Jon Quixote: steaming little purple buns for tea.

Brilliant.

The Latin lesson in LoB has got to be one of the best.
'People called Romanes they go the 'ouse'
'It says 'Romans go home."
'No it doesn't!'

The knights who no longer say ni

Holy grail

I stand corrected but it sounds something like "eki eki fkong whoop" with a confused "ni" coming from a knight somewhere in the background.

my fave scetch has to be Ministry of silly walks with John Cleese's slow motion impossibly long steps.

Good songs but I have to say that the Knights of the round table song and accompanying clip from Holy Grail never fails to tickle me.
