    But ASIDE from the straight roads... what have the Romans ever done for us?

    Sorry. I'm weak and I couldn't resist.

    Re: Among the more stupid things I have done...

    Why does every thread involving PS or RK always seem to go off on a Python tangent?

    How dare you! Typical reaction of the Judean Popular People's Front.

    Sometimes they go off at He-Man tangents!

    So... would She-Ra be more acceptable as a tangent?

    I personally feel there's not enough discussion of:
    "The Incredibles: greatest film ever, or what?"

    (I shall be very disappointed if people immediately answer "or what")

    Edna: It will be bold! Dramatic!
    Bob: Yeah!
    Edna: Heroic!
    Bob: Yeah. Something classic - like Dynaguy. Oh, he had a great look! Oh, the cape and the boots...
    Edna: [throws a wadded ball of paper at Bob's head] No capes!
    Bob: Isn't that my decision?
    Edna: Do you remember Thunderhead? Tall, storm powers? Nice man, good with kids.
    Bob: Listen, E...
    Edna: November 15th of '58! All was well, another day saved, when? his cape snagged on a missile fin!
    Bob: Thunderhead was not the brightest bulb...
    Edna: Stratogirl! April 23rd, '57! Cape caught in a jet turbine!
    Bob: E, you can't generalize about these things...
    Edna: Metaman, express elevator! Dynaguy, snag on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex! No capes!

    Lucius: The public is in danger!
    Honey: My evening's in danger!

    Re: Among the more stupid things I have done...

    Helen quotes - she has the best lines IMO:

    "There's trouble with your father"
    "Do you mean trouble with Dad, or he's in trouble?"
    "I mean either he's in trouble... or he's going to be."
    --
    " Stop it, both of you! We are not going to die! Now, you will both get a grip or so help me, I'll ground you for a month. Understand?"

    Re: 'The Thread of Brian'

    NewKid jumps on the bandwagon....

    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 yourselves. You're all individuals!

    FOLLOWERS:
    Yes, we're all individuals!

    BRIAN:
    You're all different!

    FOLLOWERS:
    Yes, we are all different!

    DENNIS:
    I'm not.

    Re: 'The Thread of Brian'

    Centurion: What's this, then? "Romanes eunt domus"? People called Romanes, they go, the house?
    Brian: It says, "Romans go home. "
    Centurion: No it doesn't ! What's the latin for "Roman"? Come on, come on !
    Brian: Er, "Romanus" !
    Centurion: Vocative plural of "Romanus" is?
    Brian: Er, er, "Romani" !
    Centurion: [Writes "Romani" over Brian's graffiti] "Eunt"? What is "eunt"? Conjugate the verb, "to go" !
    Brian: Er, "Ire". Er, "eo", "is", "it", "imus", "itis", "eunt".
    Centurion: So, "eunt" is...?
    Brian: Third person plural present indicative, "they go".
    Centurion: But, "Romans, go home" is an order. So you must use...?
    [He twists Brian's ear]
    Brian: Aaagh ! The imperative !
    Centurion: Which is...?
    Brian: Aaaagh ! Er, er, "i" !
    Centurion: How many Romans?
    Brian: Aaaaagh ! Plural, plural, er, "ite" !
    Centurion: [Writes "ite"] "Domus"? Nominative? "Go home" is motion towards, isn't it?
    Brian: Dative !
    [the Centurion holds a sword to his throat]
    Brian: Aaagh ! Not the dative, not the dative ! Er, er, accusative, "Domum" !
    Centurion: But "Domus" takes the locative, which is...?
    Brian: Er, "Domum" !
    Centurion: [Writes "Domum"] Understand? Now, write it out a hundred times.
    Brian: Yes sir. Thank you, sir. Hail Caesar, sir.
    Centurion: Hail Caesar ! And if it's not done by sunrise, I'll cut your balls off

    Teaching by intimidation, humiliation and gratuitous random use of violence. They couldn't do it today. No wonder standards have dropped

    All I can remember is "Caecilius est pater". "Felix est furcifer".

    I made paper-planes in Latin thinking I was oh-so-clever. I have since paid the price many times over for my stupidity and indolence

    Re: 'The Thread of Brian'

    And a few quotes from 'The Holy Grail'.
    Yes, that's right, I'm a splitter.

    King Arthur: I am your king.
    Woman: Well I didn't vote for you.
    King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.
    Woman: Well how'd you become king then?
    [Angelic music plays... ]
    King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.
    Dennis: [interrupting] Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    Dennis: Come see the violence inherent in the system. Help, help, I'm being repressed!

    Sir Lancelot: Look, my liege.
    [trumpets]
    King Arthur: Camelot.
    Sir Galahad: Camelot.
    Sir Lancelot: Camelot.
    Patsy: It's only a model.
    King Arthur: Shh.

    [Holding the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch]
    King Arthur: How does it... um... how does it work?
    Sir Lancelot: I know not, my liege.
    King Arthur: Consult the Book of Armaments.
    Brother Maynard: Armaments, chapter two, verses nine through twenty-one.
    Cleric: [reading] And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the Lord did grin. And the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu...
    Brother Maynard: Skip a bit, Brother...
    Cleric: And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.
    Brother Maynard: Amen.
    All: Amen.
    King Arthur: Right. One... two... five.
    Galahad: Three, sir.
    King Arthur: Three

    Knights of Camelot: [singing] We're knights of the Round Table, we dance whene'er we're able. We do routines and chorus scenes with footwork impec-cable, We dine well here in Camelot, we eat ham and jam and Spam a lot. / We're knights of the Round Table, our shows are for-mi-dable. But many times we're given rhymes that are quite un-sing-able, We're opera mad in Camelot, we sing from the diaphragm a lot. / In war we're tough and able, Quite in-de-fa-ti-gable. Between our quests we sequin vests and impersonate Clark Gable / It's a busy life in Camelot
    [solo]
    Knights of Camelot: I have to push the pram a lot.

    God: What are you doing now?
    King Arthur: Averting our eyes, oh Lord.
    God: Well, don't. It's just like those miserable psalms, always so depressing.

    Sir Lancelot: We were in the nick of time. You were in great peril.
    Sir Galahad: I don't think I was.
    Sir Lancelot: Yes, you were. You were in terrible peril.
    Sir Galahad: Look, let me go back in there and face the peril.
    Sir Lancelot: No, it's too perilous.
    Sir Galahad: Look, it's my duty as a knight to sample as much peril as I can.
    Sir Lancelot: No, we've got to find the Holy Grail. Come on.
    Sir Galahad: Oh, let me have just a little bit of peril?
    Sir Lancelot: No. It's unhealthy.
    Sir Galahad: I bet you're gay.
    Sir Lancelot: No, I'm not.
