Monty Python's Flying Circus
Episode 33: Lemon Curry

By: Monty Python


The BBC would like to apologise to everyone in the world for that last item. It was disgusting and bad and thoroughly disobedient and please don't bother to phone up, because we know it was very tasteless, but they didn't really mean it and they do all come from broken homes and have very unhappy personal lives, especially Eric. Anyway, they're really very nice people underneath and very warm in the traditional show business way and please don't write in either because the BBC is going through a rather unhappy phase at the moment, what with its Father dying and the mortgage and BBC2 going out with men.

  • Any fan will know where the title of this comes from. Graham Chapman's addition of the 'lemon curry' phrase at many odd moments of the show makes this 'untitled episode' easy to give a title to. Presumably, the gag is that there's no such thing. Curry is all but unheard of in your editor's neck of the woods and only Google can help determine what's in it. They rave about the stuff in British comedy. Python, The Young Ones and Red Dwarf all mention it. And in that last one, Lister actually goes back in time just to get some. So then I suppose... 'It's quite staggeringly popular in the manor, squire.' (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Easily the most violent episode of the series (and one of the best). Most of the sketches show characters being killed with varying degrees of cartoonish severity. "Salad Days" makes the Black Knight scene from Holy Grail look like a Teletubbies episode and it had almost as decent a budget. They even apologize for it afterward (as seen in the tagline above), though not before accusing BBC2 of going out with men. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Python has another swipe at Biggles in this show. The fictional WWI pilot from the W.E. Johns novels is portrayed as himself (albeit an insane version) rather than the "Spanish Inquisitor" from Ep. 15. The Pythons are rather less charitable to Biggles' cohorts, Algy and Ginger, though. He is also mentioned briefly in both the Python and At Last The 1948 Show versions of the "Bookshop" sketch. (Stavro Arrgolus)
