Aye, Pinched from the DT:I can't imagine anybody else playing Bernard in Yes, Minister/Yes, Prime Minister. His delivery of the deadpan wit was amazing. RIP
One of the best lines in any movie ever comes from LoB:Life of Brian is my all time favourite comedy film
Absolute classic.BRIAN: Look. You've got it all wrong. You don't need to follow me. You don't need to follow anybody! You've got to think for yourselves. You're all individuals!
FOLLOWERS: Yes, we're all individuals!
BRIAN: You're all different!
FOLLOWERS: Yes, we are all different!
DENNIS: I'm not.
The best part of that line is he's out of shot down the bottom of the screen. It always reminds me of the witch scene in the Holy Grail when someone calls out "she turned me into a newt" , when everyone looks at him he mumbles "I got better" .My favourite line of all time.
"I shall remember him as Mr Creosote. He is so funny in it and it's one of the funniest things we did. So I shall think of him exploding."The ability to transform a line of words into something that makes you laugh out loud even if you cannot figure out just how what you just heard actually made any sense whatsoever is a talent that isn't dished out to the masses. Add something visual to it and you have something unique.
