Vicar/Salesman is a sketch that appears in "Mr and Mrs Brian Norris' Ford Popular," the twenty-eighth episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.


A vicar (Eric Idle) comes to Mrs Shazam's (Terry Jones) door asking if she'd like to buy encyclopaedias. When she declines, he offers more items but she still says no as she's not religious. The vicar leaves and Mrs Shazam returns to mourning Mrs N*gger-Baiter's explosion and if it's medically possible.

It cuts to a doctor (Graham Chapman) who says exploding is a normal medical phenomenon but his doorbell rings. The vicar enters and offers him watches, pens or biros. The doctor sends him off as he's not religious. He resumes talking about how other medical experts are skeptical of his work and pokes a diagram of a skeleton with his stick. It starts to talk and decides to leave.
