It seems that Timothy is just only be used to serve as a busboy for the Vatican. By the way, I like the punchline.

Aww poor Timmy. He needs a hug. And is that a Monty Python: Hoily Grail reference I sense in the title?

Oh, what a shame.

The title refers to this scene from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The movie is, quite simply, one of the pinnacles of English-language humor.

Well you guys have you're laugh's then. ill just sit in the sideline while being the last person who starts laughing.

"He who is the last person to start laughing did not get the joke." god i love these old dutch sayings, but they kind of sound sucky when i translate them to english. but they are still true none the less 8-)

I'm wondering to whom Timothy refers as "Mother". Maxwell is a Priest of the Iscariot Order so Father (from the latin word Pater) is correct. But we catholics have due to the celibacy no female Priests (and Heinkel is... well... Heinkel is Heinkel), only nuns which are referred to as sisters.

I believe that head nuns are called Mother. I could be wrong...

Mm, Heinkel. Her Hellsing version is much more...interesting than her Crossfire version, ifyouknowwhatImean. :wink:

As far as I know (and my step-mom's Catholic) you're pretty much right. The way Timothy's using Mother, he probably is referring to a Mother Superior of Iscariot.

And Heinkel is awesome. Sooo wonderfully sexually-ambiguous.

Timothy is so adorable. I expect he now has fangirls who want to glomp him, myself included, hehe. :wink:

my guess to the storyline is that they are going to drag him along on a mission and there will be a witch and he'll need to identify it.

or

There will be another Princess Tutu reference in Shine.

or

They'll just send him to do the groceries

I think that the first two are more likely

WHAT DO I SEE FOR A PLEASANT SURPRISE AFTER NOT GETTING TO CHECK ASHN SINCE MONDAY?

Heinkel.

WHICH LEADS TO HIGHLY POSSIBLE HEINKELxYUMIKO SCENES.

Now I must go fangirl until Pushing Daisies comes on. Hurrah.
