Two ways:

  1. As Kyler suggested, you can do: thelist.remove(theitem)
  2. You can also do this: del thelist[itemindex]

For example, if you had a list named foods, and you wanted to remove the third item (index 2) which was "cheese":

foods.remove("cheese") # <-- this is one way
del foods[2]           # <-- this is the other way
