Favourite Comedy Quotes
Great replies everyone!
Steve2 - that was a good one. I also like Brian's mother (played by Terry Jones) telling Brian "leave that Welsh tart alone!" That quote stayed with me for some reason. I think it was because a lady spoke with a Welsh accent in what was supposed to be 1st century Palestine.
Great quote, Tal.
Jhine - fork 'andles-four candles sketch was very good!
Here's another great piece of comedy dialog:
(Rimmer has found out that he beat his opponent and is now a captain aboard the Holoship, in series 5)

We *must* have some George Carlin, and what better than his thoughts on religion? : P
Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do.

But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

Always plan for tomorrow. That way you don't have to do anything today.
has to be some Blackadder Goes Forth quotes here
Melchett: God, it's a barren, featureless desert out there, isn't it?
Darling: The other side, sir!
From the MONKEES tv show, Mike:
Well I hate to inherit and run...
(My granddaughter is crazy about the MONKEES now)
I can't stop thinking of the movie "History of the World" , where Moses is bringing the 3 tablets of stone down from the mountain, and he says, "Here are the 15 (drops one of the tablets) err 10 commandments"
