I've been looking all around my Monty Python collection for a sketch that I just can't seem to find. It's a "military training" sketch, but not the effeminate one ; Michael Palin stars as a screaming sergeant, telling his men that today they're going to march up and down the square and asking them if they think they have anything better to do. Of course they all do, he lets them go and ends up marching on his own. It features Eric Idle saying "I'd rather be home with my wife and kids", a line that I can hear in my head every monday morning when I get to work.
Where does that scene come from ? Please help !

And, I might add, one of (if not my favorite) scenes from the film for some reason.

I LOVE that scene XD, specially when hes shouting his head off and his hat does a little jiggle sideways! And the screechy "LEARNING THE PIANO!" does it for me
