Romans go home!


I've been meaning to do this for ages but I couldn't figure out how to do it...this is one of my all time favourite clips! I sneaked into a cinema in 1980 with a friend in Exmouth to see the film (under age of course!)....

That was funny!

Oh brilliant clip, I had forgotten that one. It reminds me of Bob trying to correct my French Grammar

"No no no! That's one of the sixteen verbs that take etre in the past tense. Repeat after me 2 A's, 2 D's, an E, 2 M's, 2 N's,
a P, 4 R's, an S, T, V!"

"No, no, no, your doing this on purpose aren't! Start again!"

Salve!

That's one of my favourite clips from the film. Thanks for sharing that.

Maria said...

HAHAHAHA! I know that scene! I have seen the film repeatedly and I loooooove it! Monty Pythons! What a pleasure! We loved to see their films and the Flying Circus series in the 1980ies so very very much! Brilliant!

It's time your comment form was translated, isn't it? Come on... Veni, vini...?

Troy, you, and the Dotterel, are making sure I dig out those Latin textbooks, prose books and vocab books from my Sixth Form days...aah! I've just been wandering down memory lane...only to be brought up short to see some of them covered in red ink!! (You can hardly see what I wrote in the first place!!!)BTW "Better late than never" ought to be my motto...

Glad you enjoyed it Maggie.

I hope Bob didn't threaten to cut your balls off, Debs!@! ;-)

Dumdad and Maria, I fear (!) that there will be more from where that clip comes from. (I think I like Monty Python more and more as I get older but I can clearly remember re-enacting various MP scenes out at school with my mates!) For some reason "No.10 The Larches" sticks in my memory bank...

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Correction! "from where that clip comes...."

Salve The Dotterel!...no sooner said than done...
BTW "vini" translates as "wines" but I infinitely prefer your version :-) Thanks for nudging me to do it!

No. 1 "The Larch"..."How to recognise different types of trees"...(It's all coming back to me now!)

Of course it does - and I'd clearly had a bit too much when I posted! ('n' is nowhere near 'd' on the keyboard, either!)
