As fond as I am of the man, this is probably for the best.

Trying to think of my favorite character of his and it's a hard thing to do. His were generally so understated. Either he was a pepperpot or a straight man (or woman). When he was directing Life of Brian he spent the entire day working in Tunisia wearing nothing but two fake beards--one high and one low. He was oblivious to the fact that he spent the entire afternoon directing a movie buck naked.

Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Brain's mother, is my fave.

Bye, Terry. It was a blast.

The mother of Brian was definitely his best character. I'd like to think he isn't dead, and simply pining for the fjords

I watched a very recent interview with Michael Palin where he talks about his close friendship with Terry over the years. It was very moving.
