A dialogue from the movie "Sliding Doors"

James: Cheer up. Remember what the Monty Python boys say.
Helen: "Always look on the bright side of life"?
James: No, "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition."

:lol:

Anyway you could (but you shouldn't, that would not be funny! :wink: ) read all the movies in which Pythons are referenced by using imdb: Look!

Spanish Inquisition references:
Quote:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!" appeared as a fictional crossover in a Batman comic book; Robin is fighting desperately against terrible odds when Batgirl unexpectedly arrives to help. After the villains are safely dispatched, in the panel at the bottom right corner of the page Robin unleashes a barrage of questions at Batgirl, asking "What are you doing here? Why did you come? How did you know where I was?" and so on, causing the overwhelmed Batgirl to reply with "Hey, slow down, I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition!" When the reader turns the page, the first panel on the next page features the Spanish Inquisition arriving on horseback, shouting "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!". In a clever bit of plot twisting, this unlikely event was actually worked in as a rational part of the overall plot.[1]

In the cult series Mystery Science Theater 3000, a running gag was that when a character in the film being watched would burst through a door, Tom Servo would yell out "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!"

When the British Abbey National Bank was taken over by the Spanish Banco Santander Central Hispano in a surprise move in 2004, The Now Show used the phrase, "Nobody expects the Spanish acquisition".

John Hannah and Gwyneth Paltrow made a connection with each other in the film Sliding Doors using the phrase.

Rory Bremner once impersonated Robin Cook in one of his 1999 shows on Channel 4, regarding the desire by the government of Spain to extradite former Chilean Dictator Augusto Pinochet during his visit to the UK - "Pinochet did not expect a Spanish extradition - HAHA! Nobody expects the Spanish Extradition! Our chief weapon is surprise!... And spin! Yes, our two chief weapons are surprise, and spin!... And Amnesty International! Yes, our three chief weapons are..."

A reference to the sketch also appears in the PC Real Time Strategy game, Tropico 2:Pirate Cove. When deciding on your piratical character's past occupation, one option is 'Inquisitor'. At the end of the description, it reads, '...your chief weapon is fear. And surprise. Your two chief weapons are fear and surprise. And you can build the interrogation chamber for half Price...'

I'm reading a book called The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde (I recommend it - it's very funny). Let me quote from it:

Quote:
They rose and walked between the faux-ancient stone ruins as the parrot took flight and flashed its exotic blue tail feathers.

'That's quite a bird' murmered Mary.

'Norwegian blue,' said Spongg admiringly, 'beautiful plumage.'

I have a very old cassette of a Federal Express
radio commercial, featuring a parrot named Monty
who wouldn't stop saying "FedEx!", until the announcer
threatened to kill him, which would result in "a dead parrot".

It was broadcast a few times on October 5, 1994: the 25th anniversary,
and never afterwards. Always wondered if some clever FedEx advertiser
snuck one past his boss.

Here's something from Monkey Island

Doesn't it remind you of the black knight scene?

yes, there must be a lot passing-the-bridge-scenes.
the labyrinth-terry jones(!)-script got one too:
DIDYMUS: But I am sworn. Without my permission, none may pass.
DIDYMUS: You dishonor me, varlets! En garde!
DIDYMUS: Rapscallions! Duel ... or _die_!

Mystery Science Theater 3000 has quite a few Python references. Ones I've personally noticed are:
In Monster A Gogo, a "Rumple Tweezer" reference.
In The Creeping Terror, (this is kind of a maybe)after a guy gets
burned in an explosion, "we can bury him or eat him."
There are at least two others I've noticed, but I can't remember them right now. When I do, I'll let you know.

The book, the meaning of liff has given one of the worlds most useful words ever:
