The Dead Organoid Sketch

Original skit from Monty Python
Starring Raven and Prozen

Iíve taken numerous liberties from the original sketch, but thatís better than leaving the sketch intact and just changing the names, isnít it? Also note that this has absolutely no continuity.

Shameless plug: Visit my brand new Zoids webpage SOS: Save our Schubaltz at http://soschubaltz.tripod.com Itís an irreverent website dedicated to the protection of Lt. Thomas Richard Schubaltz. What can I say? The guy needs it. If you like this sketch, youíll probably also like my ďRaven vs VanĒ part of the Humor section.

The Dead Organoid Sketch
by vvoltaire
Original skit from Monty Python
Starring Raven and Prozen

(Raven enters Prozenís office, dragging the stone Shadow behind him.)
Raven: Prozen, I have a complaint.
(Prozen does not respond.)
Raven: Prozen?
(Prozen does not respond.)
Raven: Albino freak?
(Prozen does not respond.)
Raven: Sadistic bastard who ruined my life?
(Prozen does not respond.)
Raven: Miss?
Prozen: What do you mean ďmissĒ?
Raven: Iím sorry, I was contemplating Vanís death. I have a complaint!
Prozen: Iím not in right now. Please leave a message with the secretary.
Raven: What are you talking about? Never mind. I wish to complain about this organoid that you gave me.
Prozen: Oh yes, Shadow. Whatís wrong with him?
Raven: Iíll tell you whatís wrong with him. Heís dead, thatís whatís wrong with him!
Prozen: No, no, Raven. Heís resting.
Raven: Look, ďsir,Ē I know a dead organoid when I see one, and Iím looking at one right now.
Prozen: Donít worry, Raven. Heís not dead, heís resting! Remarkable organoid, that Shadow. Beautiful black plating!
Raven: The plating doesnít enter into it. Heís stone dead. Literally.
Prozen: Nononono, no, no! Heís sleeping!
Raven: All right then, if heís sleeping, Iíll wake him up! (shouting at Shadow) Shadow!
(Shadow does not respond.)
Raven: SHADOW!
(Shadow does not respond.)
Raven: SHAAADOOOOW!!!!
(Shadow does not respond.)
Prozen: Maybe if you said something besides his nameÖ
Raven: Itís my thing, okay? Itís what I do. I donít stop you from manipulating everyone, pontificating endlessly, wearing your hair like a grasshopper, and trying to destroy the world. Donít stop me from yelling Shadowís name.
(Prozen nudges Shadow with his foot)
Prozen: There, he moved!
Raven: No, he didnít, that was you!
Prozen: I never!!
Raven: Yes, you did!
Prozen: Youíre accusing me of lying?
Raven: (yelling and kicking Shadow repeatedly) SHAAAADOOOOW!!!!! This is your nine oíclock alarm call! Time to go out and nearly kill Van again! I have a big powerful zoid thatís just dying to fuse with you!
(Raven gets tired and sits on Shadowís head.)
Raven: Now thatís what I call a dead organoid.
Prozen: Now look what youíve done. Youíve turned him off. (Raven jumps up)
Raven: TURNED HIM OFF?!?
Prozen: Yes! Heís mainly mechanical, isnít he? You hit his off button when he was about to wake up!
Raven: Um...now look...now look, Prozen, Iíve definitely had enough of this. That organoid is definitely deceased. When you gave him to me, you assured me that his total lack of resistance when I tackled him was due to his being tired after destroying two military bases and a 7-11 that was along the way.
Prozen: Well, heís...heís, ah...probably missing his pod.
Raven: MISSING his POD?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that? I know youíre a deluded, power-hungry, war-mongering, nihilistic psycho, but this is crazy even for you!
Prozen: Black organoids are known to be homesick! Remarkable organoid, isnít he, Raven? Lovely plating!
Raven: Look, I took the liberty of examining Shadow when I left the base, and I discovered the only reason that he had been attached to my zoid in the first place was that he had been TIED there.
(pause)
Prozen: Well, of course he was tied there! If I hadnít tied that organoid to your zoid, he would have flown away, fused with the Deathsaurer, and VOOM!
Raven: ďVOOMĒ?!? Prozen, this organoid wouldnít ďvoomĒ if you gave him four million pieces of magnite! Heís completely stone!
Prozen: No, no! Heís resting!
Raven: Heís not resting! Heís passed on! This organoid is no more! He has ceased to be! Heís expired and gone to meet his maker! Heís a stiff! Total stone! A lawn ornament! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! Heís statuary! A monument! If he werenít lying on your carpet, he could be his own gravestone! His circuitry is no longer transferring electrons! He kicked the bucket, stomped on it a couple of times, then hit it with a particle beam, just to be sure! To put it another way, his life expectancy is now even shorter than that of a Pteras!! THIS IS AN EX-ORGANOID!!
(pause)
Prozen: Well, Iíd better replace him, then. (he takes a quick peek behind his desk) Sorry Raven, Iíve had a look around the base, and weíre all out of organoids.
Raven: I see. I see, I get the picture.
Prozen: I can give you Riese. Sheís been trying to get with you for a while.
(pause)
Raven: Tell me, can she fuse with a zoid?
Prozen: ÖNot really.
Raven: WELL SHEíS HARDLY A REPLACEMENT, IS SHE?!!???!!?
Prozen: N-no, I guess not. (gets ashamed, fiddles with something on his desk)
Raven: Well.
(pause)
Prozen: Do you want a shiny new Genosaurer so you can go and try to kill Van?
Raven: I thought youíd never ask.
