** The disparate Jewish sects agitating against the Romans really were as divided in real life as they were depicted in this film, and actually did more infighting than fighting against the Romans. Ultimately this meant that all three Jewish uprisings against the Romans failed precisely because WeAreStrugglingTogether, though the immense military strength of the Roman Empire didn't help either. John Cleese, a former Latin teacher, most likely knew enough about Roman history to know this.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Eric Idle’s Mr Cheeky spends the first half of the film insulting everyone he sees as ‘big nose’...but in the finale when Brian is crucified, he is genuinely supportive and sympathetic to him and seems genuinely upset that the Romans take his ‘I’m Brian’ joke seriously and the real Brian will still keep suffering.

* LongList: The "what have the Romans ever done for us?" scene turns into one of these as [[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder Reg's rhetorical question]] ends up turning into an extended list of the many varied benefits the Roman occupiers actually ''have'' brought to Judea.

** One of the guards' face ''screams'' of this when Pilate tells that Biggus Dickus "has a wife, you know". The actors playing the guards were [[EnforcedMethodActing specifically told not to laugh]], so the reaction is most likely [[EnforcedMethodActing a real one.]]

* LaResistance: The several groups to free Judea from the Romans, and how they suck at it.
** The People's Front of Judea (who are not the Judean People's Front) is a group Brian joins, mostly to get with Judith. The group discusses the horrible abuses by the Roman's, but ends up admitting that the provide most of the technology they use.
** During an operation to kidnap Caesar, the People's Front of Judea runs into another group, the Campaign for Free Galilee. The two groups [[WeAreStrugglingTogether immediately start fighting]], and when Brian tries to convince them they have a common enemy, they both think of the Judean People's Front.
** [[spoiler:When Brian is crucified]] the Judean People's Front arrives with a suicide squad. Unfortunately [[spoiler:they are a bit to literal, as the squad immediately kill themselves upon arrival]].
