The Man With Three Buttocks
Announcer (Eric Idle): And now for something completely different. A man with three buttocks!
Host (John Cleese): Good Evening. I have with me Mr Arthur Frampton who has... (pause) Mr. Frampton, I understand that you, as it were, have... (pause) Well let me put it another way. I believe Mr. Frampton that whereas most people have - er - two... two.. you... you...
Frampton (Terry Jones): I'm sorry?
Host: Ah yes, yes I see. Are you quite comfortable?
Frampton: Yes, fine thank you.
Host: Mr Frampton, er, vis a vis your... (pause) rump.
Frampton: I beg your pardon?
Host: Your rump.
Host: Er, your posterior. (Whispers) Derriere. Sit-upon.
Frampton: What's that?
Host: (whispers) Your buttocks.
Frampton: Oh, me bum!
Host: (hurriedly) Sshhh! Well Mr Frampton, I understand that you, Mr Frampton, have a... (pause) 50% bonus in the region of what you say.
Frampton: I got three cheeks.
Host: Yes, yes, splendid, splendid. Well we were wondering, Mr Frampton, if you could see your way clear...
Frampton: (seeing a camera moving round behind him) Here? What's that camera doing?
Host: Er, nothing, nothing at all, sir. We were wondering if you could see your way clear...to giving us...a quick... a quick... visual... Mr Frampton, will you take your trousers down?
Frampton: What? (to cameraman) 'Ere, get that away! I'm not taking me trousers off on television. Who do you think I am?
Host: Please take them down.
Host: Just a little bit?
Host: Now look here Mr Frampton... It's perfectly easy for somebody just to come along here to the BBC simply claiming... that they have a bit to spare in the botty department, but the point is Mr. Frampton, our viewers need proof.
Frampton: I've been on Persian Radio. Get off! Arthur Figgis knows I've got three buttocks.
Frampton: We go cycling together.

Announcer: (sitting at desk) And now for something completely different. A man with three buttocks.
(Interview studio again.)
Host: Good evening, I have with me Mr Arthur Frampton, who... Mr Frampton I understand that you, as it were have - well let me put it another way... I believe Mr Frampton that whereas most people... didn't we do this just now?
Frampton: Er ... yes.
Host: Well why didn't you say so?
Frampton: I thought it was the continental version.
(Cut back to Announcer sitting at desk)
Announcer: And now for something completely the same - a man with three buttocks. (phone on desk rings - he answers) Hello? Oh, did we? (puts phone down and looks at camera) And now for something completely different. A man with three noses.
Off-Screen Voice: He's not here yet!
Announcer: Two noses?
