  • The opening, titular sketch to episode "Mr. and Mrs. Brian Norris' Ford Popular" has an unusually genuine happy ending when compared to others. The journey he took may not make a lot of sense to anyone in our world, but when he finds the route between Surbiton and Hounslow you can't help but feel happy for the guy.
    Narrator: Happy and contented, Mr. Norris returned to the calmer waters of chartered accountancy, for - in his way - 'Wrong Way' Norris was right!

  • During one of many BBC interruptions, the announcer explains he's doing this job for his ailing wife and child, and finds himself so choked up he cannot continue. His wife and a friend then come on the air and help him, step-by-step, through the rest of the announcement, and when he finally completes it their jubilation for him is so strong it drowns out the actual news announcement.
  • Meta example: According to Carol Cleveland, she started out only with bit parts in a couple of the episodes in the first season, but the Pythons loved working with her so much, they started including bigger parts for her in material that they were writing. When she told them she was only brought in originally for a couple of cameos and wouldn't be able to film with them, they called bollocks on that, had her signed on as the "seventh Python," and she would stay with them until the show ended.
