Here Comes Another One: I've only just seen this sketch and I LOVE it. I have a few favourite Eric Idle moments from MPFC.

1. When he stamps his foot and says: 'No it is NOT a Flemish Merchant!'

2. When as the French woman in Cycling Tour he says 'Formidaaaaable.'

3. When he impersonates an alarm clock in the 'No Time To Lose' sketch.

Those would have to be my top three, anyway.

Oh yes, and as the gay judge in Live at the Hollywood Bowl - priceless.

Lvndr HppE: If I was going to pick a favorite Eric moment, I'd say. . . the World Forum sketch.

Ha! Didn't realize I had commented on this already. I'd have to say that my favorite non-Python moment would be in Rutland when he dressed as a carrot who was in the military.

Lady and Laird Candermine:

Holly at 9:00 pm July 30

Ah, Neil is such a cute minstrel.

the_thina at 11:17 pm July 30

haha. yeah, something like that! ^^

oh, yes he is. I love when he gets pissed off with eric/robin. those facial expressions and angy eyes, just like a little kid when someone steals their candy or something. haha

Hanri: I have two all time favorite Eric moments. Both from Python production.

No. 1 from MOL, the lovable suppressed sexually deprived biting of the lower lip -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkIOG1Y9GVg

No. 2 from MPFC, the first time I saw this I could pick my jaw from the floor at any point during the sketch and I tried so hard not to laugh out loud so I wouldn't miss a word - until he broke into the song, by that time I was pounding the floor with my fists. Seriously, you can HEAR the blood rushing to his head! -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sor9GzivGbk

Holly at 8:45 pm July 29

I love the Money Song! I find myself trying to do his little dance whenever I hear it (even when I'm driving)

the_thina at 1:16 pm July 29

hahaha! those are both great, the sexual frustrstration in the first one is just soooo great, and one thing I love about the second one... watch john closely when the pilgrims come dancing in! he flinches! haha

Hanri at 1:19 pm July 29

And look closely to both John and Terry, their reactions on everything are priceless!

the_thina at 4:24 pm July 29

Hanri at 1:04 am July 30

Isn't Gilliam the other one?

the_thina at 1:24 am July 30
