At a meeting in the offices of their film distributor they discuss allowing the film to be released in America first because of the America's first amendment. Cleese voices his support for the idea, and says that he loves Americans. We then see American reporters at a screening of the movie where a near riot is taking place due to the alleged blasphemous nature of the film. The Pythons review a disheartening statement made by a religious leader, implying that the film causes violence. Cleese misinterprets this (possibly deliberately) and goes off on a tangent about little kids carrying out copycat crucifixions on their friends. Their distributor, Barry, suggests a low profile approach for the UK release so as not to cause too much upset. "Let's not project an advert onto the side of Westminster Abbey or make Life of Brian Christmas crackers".

La démission en novembre 1990 de Geoffrey Howe (John Sessions), leader de la Chambre des communes, en protestation contre la politique étrangère de Margaret Thatcher (Lindsay Duncan), débouche sur une crise au sein du Parti conservateur. Michael Heseltine (Oliver Cotton), ancien secrétaire d'État à la Défense, défie le Premier ministre en se portant candidat au leadership du parti.
