  • Song Lyrics:
    (A kitchen. A man [Eric Idle] and woman [Terry Jones] listening to the radio.)

    Radio Voice: I would like to ask the team what they would do if they were Hitler.
    Man's Voice: Gerald?
    Another Voice: Well, I'd annex the Sudetenland and sign a non-aggression pact with Russia.
    First Man's Voice: Norman?
    Norman's Voice (gay): Well, I'd do the Reichstag bathroom in purples and golds and ban abortion on demand.

    Woman: (switching the radio off) Liberal rubbish. Klaus? What do you want with your jugged fish?
    Man: Halibut.
    Woman: The jugged fish is halibut.
    Man: What fish have you got that isn't jugged, then?
    Woman: Rabbit.
    Man: What? Rabbit fish?
    Woman: Yes. It's got fins.
    Man: Is it dead?
    Woman: Well, it was coughing up blood last night.
    Man: All right I'll have the dead unjugged rabbit fish.


    Man: Well, that was really horrible.
    Woman: You're always complaining.
    Man: What's for afters?
    Woman: Well, there's rat cake, rat sorbet, rat pudding, or strawberry tart.
    Man: Strawberry tart?!
    Woman: Well, it's got some rat in it.
    Man: How much?
    Woman: Three. Rather a lot really.
    Man: Well, I'll have a slice without so much rat in it.


    Man: Appalling.
    Woman: Moan, moan, moan.

    (Son [Graham Chapman] enters)

    Son: Hello, mum, hello, dad.
    Man: Hello, son.
    Son: There's a dead bishop on the landing.
    Woman: Where did that come from?
    Son: What do you mean?
    Woman: What's its diocese?
    Son: Well it looked a bit Bath and Wellsish to me.
    Man: I'll go and have a look. (goes out)
    Woman: I don't know who keeps bringing them in here.
    Son: Well it's not me.
    Woman: I've put three out by the bin and the dustmen won't touch 'em.
    Man: (coming back) Leicester.
    Woman: How do you know?
    Man: Tattooed on the back of his neck. I'm going to call the police.
    Woman: Shouldn't you call the Church?
    Son: Call the Church police.
    Man: Right. (shouts) The Church police!

    (Enter two policemen dressed partly as priests )

    Church Policeman (Michael Palin): Yus!
    Woman: There's another dead bishop on the landing.
    Church Policeman: Suffragan or diocesan?
    Woman: How should I know?
    Church Policeman: It's tattooed on the back of their necks. Ere! Is that rat tart?
    Woman: Yes.
    Church Policeman: Disgusting. Right! The hunt is on. (kneels) Oh Lord, we beseech thee...tell us who croaked Leicester.

    (Organ music. A huge hand descends and points at Idle.)

    Man: All right, it's a fair cop, but society is to blame.
    Church Policeman: Agreed.
    Man: I would like the three by the bin to be taken into consideration.
    Church Policeman: Right. And now, I'd like to conclude this arrest with a hymn.

    All: (singing) And did those feet in ancient times walk upon England's mountains green. (church police arrest the man) And was the holy lamb of God on England's pleasant pastures seen.
