  • Python fans know the straight man in this sketch played by Terry Jones as "squire" as in- "Evening, Squire.

    Him: I'm sorry, I don't quite follow you.

    Arthur: Follow me. Follow me. I like that. That's good. A nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat, eh? (elbow gesture; rubs it)

    Him: Are you trying to sell something?

    Arthur: Selling, selling. Very good. Very good. (hand tilting quickly) Oh, wicked. Wicked. You're wicked. Eh? Know what I mean. Know what I mean? Nudge nudge. Know what I mean? Nudge nudge. Nudge nudge. (leaning over to him, making eye gesture; speaks slowly) (leans back as if having imparted a great secret)

    Him: But...

    Arthur: (stops him with finger which he lays alongside nose; gives slight tap) Your wife is she, eh... is she a sport. Eh?

    Him: She likes sport, yes.

    Arthur: I bet she does, I bet she does!

    Him: She is very fond of cricket, as a matter of fact.

    Him: No, no we don't have a camera.

    Arthur: Oh. Still (makes strange British body language motion indicating sex) Woah! Eh? Wo-oah! Eh?

    Him: (annoyed now; plonks pint on table, spilling some) Look, are you insinuating something?

    Arthur: Yes.

    Him: Well?
