Fishy, fishy, fishy fish!

I was just watching Family Guy on TV - it was the episode where Peter and his mates are on a fishing boat and are on their way into a cave (where they meet a talking fish robot). Just on their way in, you see the character with the long arms from 'The Meaning of Life' (played by Terry Jones in the movie) saying "fishy fishy fish" etc . One of the many Python references in other shows and one I was not aware of.

I think that part is the weirdest segment I've ever seen in any movie (barring David Lynch material of course). Here's what he says in full:

I wonder where that fish has gone.
You did love it so. You looked after it like a son.
And it went wherever I did go.
Is it in the cupboard?
Yes! Yes! No!…
Wouldn’t you like to know? It was a lovely little fish.
And it went wherever I did go.
It’s behind the sofa!
Where can that fish be?
It is a most elusive fish!
And it went wherever I did go.
Ooooh, fishy, fishy, fishy fish!
A-fish, a-fish, a-fish, a-fishy, ooooh.
Ooooh, fishy, fishy, fishy fish!
That went wherever I did go.

the_thina: my favourite part from MOL. just love it. and that very episode of family guy was on here not so long ago.

Susana Mendonca: That’s funny because I though the same thing, it’s the most weird scene I ever saw.
I got to ask Terry what it meant when I met him last January. He answered:
(Laughing) I don’t know! It was a scene I did for the middle of the movie. I actually still don’t know how the others went along with the idea! (Laughs) The factory was incredibly beautiful, there were all these knobs and thing to push and pull, it was just incredibly beautiful.

gna42: It sounds like his style. It's different than the others, more prose than poetry...

still a CLASSIC!

"Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad..." and... "always look on the Bright Side of Life..."

Lemming_Of_The_BDA: EVERY TIME I say the whole fishy thing people always say it's from family guy
Thank goodness people understand here... I might go crazy(ier) if I didn't have a place where people understand my many python references!
