Slightly Adequate Relatively Unknown Pythony Factoids #30:

A sketch in episode 5 of the first series features a policeman (Chapman) who enters a flat and plants some drugs on an innocent man (Idle). Idle notices his actions, and investigates the package discovering it to contain sandwiches. "Blimey!" exclaims Chapman. "Whatever did I give the wife?" This then cuts crudely into the middle of a huge audience laugh. The sketch was scheduled to end with a shot of an inebriated woman (Palin) saying "I don’t know, but it was better than sandwiches…" while hitting eggs around the kitchen with a frying pan as if it was a tennis racket. This never made it to tx, on the insistence of the BBC. The censorship has been alluded to in several places, including the American version of the 1989 documentary Life Of Python in which Idle quotes the punchline as "I don’t know, but it was better than lunch!".
