            From: Monty Python's Flying Circus
  Transcribed By: Jonathan Partington

Mrs. Conclusion (Chapman): Hullo, Mrs. Premise.
Mrs. Premise (Cleese):	   Hullo, Mrs. Conclusion.
Conclusion: Busy Day?
Premise:    Busy? I just spent four hours burying the cat.
Conclusion: *Four hours* to bury a cat?
Premise:    Yes - it wouldn't keep still.
Conclusion: Oh - it wasn't dead, then?
Premise:    No, no - but it's not at all well, so as we were going to be on the
	    safe side.
Conclusion: Quite right - you don't want to come back from Sorrento to a dead
	    cat.  It'd be so anticlimactic.  Yes, kill it now, that's what I
	    say.  We're going to have to have our budgie put down.
Premise:    Really - is it very old?
Conclusion: No, we just don't like it.	We're going to take it to the vet
Premise:    Tell me, how do they put budgies down, then?
Conclusion: Well, it's funny you should ask that, because I've just been
	    reading a great big book about how to put your budgie down, and
	    apparently you can either hit them with the book, or you can shoot
	    them just there, just above the beak.
Premise:    Just there?  Well, well, well.  'Course, Mrs Essence flushed hers
	    down the loo.
Conclusion: No, you shouldn't do that - no, that's dangerous.  They *breed* in
	    the *sewers*!
