(Sketch opens with the BBC world symbol)
Voice Over: Monty Python's Flying Circus tonight comes to
you live from the Grillomat Snack Bar, Paignton.
(Interior of a nasty snack bar. Customers around, preferably
real people. Linkman sitting at one of the plastic tables.)
Linkman: Hello to you live from the Grillomat Snack Bar,
Paignton. And so, without any more ado, let's have the titles.
It's Man Voice: It's...
(Animated titles. Back to the snack ban)
Linkman: (with rather forced bonhomie) Well, those
were the titles. And now for the first item this evening on the Menu
- ha ha - the team have chosen as a little hors d'oeuvres an item -
and I think we can be sure it won't be an ordinary item - in fact
the team mid me just before the show that anything could happen, and
probably would - so let's have ... the item.
