Series 2, Episode 18: Grill-o-Mat
VOICE OVER Michael Palin
LINKMAN John Cleese
(Sketch opens with the BBC world symbol)
Voice Over: Monty Python’s Flying Circus tonight comes to you live from the Grillomat Snack Bar, Paignton.
(Interior of a nasty snack bar. Customers around, preferably real people. Linkman sitting at one of the plastic tables.)
Linkman: Hello to you live from the Grillomat Snack Bar, Paignton. And so, without any more ado, let’s have the titles.

(Animated titles. Back to the snack ban)
Linkman: (with rather forced bonhomie) Well, those were the titles. And now for the first item this evening on the Menu – ha ha – the team have chosen as a little hors d’oeuvres an item – and I think we can be sure it won’t be an ordinary item – in fact the team told me just before the show that anything could happen, and probably would – so let’s have … the item.
