  1. Hearing some of Cleese’s lines, I sometimes wondered if he came up with some of them himself. They felt distinctively in his “voice”.

    I was a Monty Python fan basically from high school on – the show was on PBS and we used to do the most famous sketches by rote between friends – I don’t think I saw any of the movies until much much later. So I was excited when A Fish Called Wanda came out, my first time seeing Cleese at the movies. I still remember him appearing on the Tonight Show or something and talking about his nude scene.

    As a Whovian, I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention his cameo in Doctor Who: City of Death, one of the greatest Who serials of all time.

    As for Cheers, while the episode is an extended joke leading to a punchline, it was great extended joke leading to a punchline.

  2. I was alive when Charles and Diana got married, and the US press/comedians often referred to them as “Chuck and Di.”

    One of CHEERS’ best episodes. I had read they wanted to bring Cleese-as-Finchroyce back in later seasons, I’m glad they didn’t. They could not have topped this.

  3. Yeah “Chuck & Di” was the common tabloid name for them, especially in the more scandal-plagued later years.

    I love when Diane is ‘one of the gang’ and her just hearing what she wants with that rant is a great example.
