You mean the Maxi one? :D

A favourite for many but am I right in thinking it was Cleese's least favourite, or he thought it was the weakest or something?

I remember him saying he didn't like the one with the builders. But anyway, what's not to like about the Gourmet Night? Never ask an artist about his own work.

I always enjoy the following exchange (the more so because it doesn't get much of a laugh).

Basil: (putting down a coffee) Cafe pour vous.

Mrs. Peignor: (disappointed) Oh. Pas pour tu?

Basil: No. I'll probably have one later.
