It is notable as being one of Carol Cleveland's first appearances on Monty Python's Flying Circus.

SynopsisEdit

Flying CircusEdit

CarolCleveland

Carol Cleveland as the stereotypical "blonde bombshell" in the Marriage Guidance Counsellor sketch.

Married couple Arthur (Michael Palin) and Deirdre Pewtey (Carol Cleveland) visit a marriage counsellor. As Mr Pewtey tries to state the problems in their marriage, the marriage guidance counsellor flirts with a receptive Mrs. Pewtey rather than give the couple advice. Mr Pewtey fails miserably to react to this behaviour and stand up for himself. He leaves the office and a Southerner (John Cleese) convinces him he must "be a man." An ambitious Pewtey goes back into the office and is immediately kicked back out. A man in a suit of armour (Terry Gilliam) then hits him in the head with a chicken.
