Trivia

For the Monty Python purists out there (like myself) you might notice that the designers made one, possibly game-stopping, error in the game. During one of the many challenges found throughout the game, there is a trivia section that requires a fill-in-the-blank response. One of the questions regarding the "How Not to be Seen" sketch asks you to complete the following line: "Nobody likes a _______"

Apparently, the game designers were not able to make out John Cleese's words, as the narrator, during the sketch. The answer you must input is "Benedict" but in fact if you listen carefully the -real- answer is "Nobody likes a Clever Dick"

(This can be corroborated from the line of Monty Python books, "All the Words: Volume Two")
