“Nudge Nudge” features Eric Idle (playing a younger man) and Terry Jones (as an older gentleman) as patrons in a pub. Idle strikes up a conversation with Jones asking him a stream of personal, sexual innuendo-laden questions, about his relationship with his wife: “Is your wife a goer?”, “Is she a sport…?”, “Is your wife interested in … photography…?”. A confused Jones, who appears not to understand Idle’s innuendos, responds in a polite, non-committal way to the questions, and Idle responds with an enthusiastic ""Know what I mean? Know what I mean? Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink. Say no more"". As the sketch continues, Idle’s questions get more and more clearly sexual, and his reactions to Jones' responses get more and more complicated. After a period of time, Jones demands to know what Idle is talking about. Somewhat embarrassed, Idle clumsily asks if Jones has slept with a lady. When Jones says that he has, a fascinated Idle asks, ""What's it like?"".
Written by Eric Idle, “Nudge Nudge” premiered on 19 October 1969 in Series 1, Episode 3 of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”. It also appeared in the 1971 spin-off feature film, “And Now for Something Completely Different”, the 1982 concert film “Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl” and Jones and Idle reprised their roles for the 2014 Monty Python reunion shows “Monty Python Live (mostly) - One Down Five to Go”.
