There are many Monty Python websites offering hundreds, of their scripts. They don't seem to be enforcing their copyright.

However, these are transcribed directly from the shows, and Monty Python's Flying Circus is notorious for not exactly ending a show but simply morphing into another sketch. For instance, Pet Shop morphs into The Lumberjack Song with no ending in between. The pet shop owner merely says, "I never wanted to do this! I wanted to be a lumberjack!" If you don't have a bunch of burly guys to follow, the first script is left hanging. That's where I come in. I gave it an ending. A good one, I believe.

These scripts are selected and altered no more than necessary to make them performable, each by itself. I try to note the changes I make so as not to alter the original (brilliance) any more than necessary.
