... and one of the best scenes. Silly, really. But every time I watch this film I laugh out loud, even still today.

"First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either 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."

Sorry for the random post. I have no idea why I'm writing this, really. For some reason it was just on my mind.
If you've never seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail, then each of the following three things applies directly to you:
  1. Your life is incomplete
  2. You're missing out
  3. Shame on you

So go rent or buy a copy now, then watch it and relax, knowing your life is much more whole than it had been before you read this post.

@dbs - Glad you're a good parent, we need more like you. :)

Actually, I used to be a foster parent of almost all special needs kids, 14 of them over the years. All of them saw Holy Grail for the first time with me. It was (seriously) a great tool for getting kids who'd been through hell out of their shell and laughing at something (anything really). The fact that it was so absurd helped I think. Hmmmm. Interesting, really. All I know is, it worked.

Wow, it's almost been 10 years since I've seen this. About time for a movie without Patrick Bateman being the main character. ;)

Greg, I actually did email you not too long ago (well, end of last year, really) but I have the suspicion that your anti-spam filter hates me. But I shall not despair and try again! =)
