You may have your wires ever so slightly crossed, here. In Fawlty Towers, after a rude American guest* has threatened to "bust his ass", John Cleese says "everything's bottoms, isn't it?" In It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Terry-Thomas lectures Milton Berle about Americans' infantile preoccupation with bosoms.


* Played brilliantly by Bruce Boa. I looked him up on IMDb once and was surprised at the movies I'd seen him in without ever recognizing him.
