[...] Most Python sketches just end abruptly, and sometimes-even characters say “What a stupid sketch” and walk out. In Monty Python Live in Aspen, Terry Gilliam explains: “Our first rule was: no punchlines. [some sketches] start brilliant, great acting, really funny sketch, but punch line is just not as good as the rest of the sketch, so it kills the entire thing. That’s why we eliminated them.” [...]

let's name the few there are:

nudge nudge: what's it like?

restaurant sketch: Lucky we didn't say anything about the dirty knife.

seduced milkmen: the room is full of milkmen... some of whom... are very old.
