What Monty Python work is being referenced in this code???

What Monty Python work is being referenced here:

(First person to guess correctly gets best answer! This is more discussion than question, but it's an example of how to tweak the code a bit to make it your own):


tickets_remaining = 100 

# Output how many tickets are remaining using the tickets_remaining variable

print("We presently have {} tickets remaining\n".format(tickets_remaining))

# Gather the user's name and assign it to a new variable

name = input("Hello, fellow coconut banger! What is your name?   ")

# Prompt the user by name and ask how many tickets they would like

tickets_needed = input("\nThank you, {}! What is your quest? (How many tickets would you like?)    ".format(name))

print("\nWhat... is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?\n\nJust kidding - we won't toss you from a bridge this time!\n\nLet's see - {}, you say?".format(tickets_needed))

tickets_needed = int(tickets_needed)
not_count = tickets_needed + 1
nor_either = tickets_needed - 1
right_out = tickets_needed + 2

print("\nThen, shalt I count to {}. No more. No less. \n{} shalt be the number I shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be {}. \n{} shalt I not count, nor either count I {}, excepting that I then proceed to {}. \n\n{} is right out.".format(tickets_needed, tickets_needed, tickets_needed, not_count, nor_either, tickets_needed, right_out))

# Calculate the price (number of tickets they want multiplied by price) and assign it to a variable

price = TICKET_PRICE * tickets_needed

# Output the price to the screen

print("\nYour ticket total comes to ${}, {}.".format(price, name))````
