Funny / Monty Python's The Meaning of Life

  • The opening credits.
  • "The Crimson Permanent Assurance" for Mind Screwing the audience by playing right before the main feature, and then returning to attack the film itself halfway through.
    • The way the movie decides to deal with the Crimson Permanent Assurance's attempt to intrude on the feature presentation: tipping over a skyscraper onto it.
    • Really, that entire goddamned short in all of its epic, unparalleled absurdity. A bunch of old British men become pirates and sail a building all the way to America.
  • The "liver removal" scene Crosses the Line Twice between shockingly gruesome and absolutely hilarious, especially with "The Galaxy Song" coming right afterwards.
    Mr. Pink: Pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space, 'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth!
  • The Grim Reaper. "It was...THE SALMON MOUSSE!" And Michael Palin's contribution: "Hey! I didn't even eat the mousse!"
    • Also, one of the guests trying to kill the Grim Reaper by shooting him.
    • "Englishmen, you're all so fucking pompous! None of you have got any balls!
  • The Tiger/Leg sketch.
  • All of the "Fighting Each Other" section.
  • "Birth". The whole sketch is hilarious, but the machine that goes "PING!" is the funniest.
    • —> Who are you?
    I'm her husband.
    I'm sorry, but only people involved may enter here.
  • The Middle of the Film/Find the Fish.
  • "Oh God, you are so very huge!"
  • "Every Sperm is Sacred" is one of the most over-the top things you will ever see.
    • This song basically has children singing "every sperm is sacred", while their parents pop more out, and the current ones are sold off for science experimentation. Crosses the Line Twice doesn't quite cover it. It crosses the line about 5 times.
  • The "Marching Up and Down the Square" sketch for its brilliant subversion of the Drill Sergeant Nasty trope.
    • This:
    Narrator: "Democracy and integrity have always been trademarks of the British army!"
    Sgt. Major: "RUBBISH!"
    Narrator: "Shh!"
  • The sex education class. "Now, did I or did I not... do... vaginal... juices?"
    • "What's wrong with a kiss, boy, hmm? Why not start her off with a nice kiss? You don't have to go leaping straight for the clitoris like a bull at the gate. Give her a kiss, boy!"
  • The song "Isn't It Awfully Nice To Have A Penis?"
  • "...And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space, 'cos there's bugger all down here on Earth!"
  • "Arthur Jarrett is a convicted criminal who has been allowed to choose the manner of his execution." And it shows...
    • Doubly funny is that Arthur Jarrett was played by homosexual Graham Chapman.
  • A Protestant husband is so busy bragging about his right to use contraceptives that he's only slept with his wife twice.
