This sketch examines the perils of carrying a liver donor card in the Python metaverse.
As is typical for a Python film, the do-gooder gets his commeuppance by having his liver forcibly extracted by two rather scruffy fellows who assure his wife that they are definitely "not doctors".
Mr Brown: "Look, I can't give it to you now. It says 'In The Event of Death'..."
First Man: "No-one who has ever had their liver taken out by us has survived..."
Rather understandably, Mr Brown finds this a difficult point to argue with.
Would you let these two into your house? Too late, they've found Mr. Brown's donor card!
Operations where you actively need the patient to die require less delicate surgical tools...
Despite a valiant attempt to grab back his own liver, the operation is a success.
There is a happy ending though:
Mrs Brown: "What d'you do with them all anyway?"
Eric: "They all go to saving lives, madam."
She is then treated to the famous "Universe" song, which is so profound that she also consents to having her liver removed.
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
Because there' bugger all down here on earth."
