“If I had not gone into Monty Python, I probably would have stuck to my original plan to graduate and become a chartered accountant, perhaps a barrister lawyer, and gotten a nice house in the suburbs, with a nice wife and kids, and gotten a country club membership, and then I would have killed myself.”
-John Cleese, 1997
Favorite Python :’)

Gaston: You see that? That’s where I was born. You know, one day, my mother, she put me on her knee and she said to me, “Gaston, my son. The world is a beautiful place. You must go into it and love everyone. Try to make everyone happy. Bring peace and contentment everywhere you go.” So I became a waiter. [pauses] Well it’s not much of a philosophy, I know. Well… fuck you. I can live my own life in my own way if I want to. Fuck off! Don’t come following me!
Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life (1983)
