Mrs Thing and Mrs Entity is a sketch that appears in "Archaeology Today," the twenty-first episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Synopsis[]

A Pepperpot, Mrs Thing (Graham Chapman) sits on a bench alone. Another Pepperpot, Mrs Entity (Eric Idle) greets her and sits down next to her. The two converse about their day and how worn out they are. The two talk about how different housewives must have had to live their lives differently, such as Mrs Beethoven having to spur on the mynah bird. The picture starts to ripple, with dreamy harp music and Mrs Entity asks what's happening, and Mrs Thing says "it's all right, it's only a flashback."
