The Monty Python troupe’s 1975 satire of the King Arthur story is one of the only movies to combine political satire — “We don’t have a lord … we’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune” — with fart jokes. For that reason, it’s probably the best thing Monty Python has ever done. When you quote this movie, please affect a British accent.
Sir Bedevere: “What makes you think she’s a witch?”
Peasant: “Well, she turned me into a newt!
Sir Bedevere: A newt?”
Peasant: “… I got better.”
(After the Black Knight has his arms and legs cut off in battle but still wants to fight King Arthur)
King Arthur: “What are you going to do, bleed on me?”
French soldier: “I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty-headed animal-food-trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries.”
