In "Part V: Live Organ Transplants", two paramedics (Chapman and Cleese) arrive at the doorstep of a card-carrying organ donor, Mr. Brown (Gilliam), to claim his liver. Still being alive, he initially refuses. Not to be deterred, the paramedics burst through the door and brutally disembowel him, removing the organ "under condition of death". Mrs. Brown (Jones) goes to make a cup of tea for one of the paramedics, who asks her if she'd consider donating her liver. She is unsure. To convince her, the paramedic introduces her to the man in a pink suit (Idle) who lives inside her refrigerator to sing her a song about the wonders of the universe, resulting in her realising the small importance of her existence and agreeing to the request.

Wow! Very graphic!
One of my favorites. =]

This scene was one of the most disturbing and damning comments protesting how society had devalued people's lives.

No, I won't add more body shapes, band shirts or sports trikots. Really.
