View Full Version : The Life of Brian

Everyone is discussing the Life of Brian at the moment - and that happens to be my favorite Monty Python film.

Brian: Please, please, please listen! I've got one or two things to say.
The Crowd: Tell us! Tell us both of them!
Brian: Look, you've got it all wrong! You don't NEED to follow ME, You don't NEED to follow ANYBODY! You've got to think for your selves! You're ALL individuals!
The Crowd: Yes! We're all individuals!
Brian: You're all different!
The Crowd: Yes, we ARE all different!
Man in crowd: I'm not...
The Crowd: Sch!

My favorite scene from TLOB is this one:


Follower: Hail, Messiah!

Brian: I'm not the Messiah!

Follower: I say you are, Lord, and I should know; I've followed a few.

All: Hail, Messiah!

Brian: I'm not the Messiah! Won't you please listen: I am NOT the Messiah, do you understand? Honestly!

Female follower: Only the true Messiah denies his divinity!

Brian: Whaaaaat?!? Well what sort of chance does that give me? All right, I AM the Messiah!

All: He is! He is the Messiah! Praise him!

Brian: Now, FUCK OFF!

Follower, after long, thoughtful pause: How shall we 'fuck off', O Lord?

Aaaaah -- Always look on the bright side of life.

I can't think of a better song to memorialize Brian, can you? :)

John Moore's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Deshong's a laugh and Seth's a joke, it's true
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you :D
