If that makes sense to anybody, does anyone know where I can find the
original script to work from?
I haven't tracked the original script down (yet), but the sketch was
called "Three Classes" and appeared on one of David Frost's early
SL 7th Stalybridge
I have a book somewhere with the script in it. Mo More Curries Eggs for Me
If I find it I will post or email the script.
Requested it in alt.comedy.british and low, someone responded to my cry!

CLEESE: I look down on him (Barker) because I am upper-class.
BARKER: I look up to him (Cleese) because he is upper-class;
but I look down on him (Corbett) because he is
lower-class. I am middle-class.
CORBETT: I know my place. I look up to them both. But I don't look up
to him (Barker) as much as I look up to him (Cleese),
because he has got innate breeding.
CLEESE: I have got innate breeding, but i have not got any money.
So sometimes I look up (bends knees, does so) to him
BARKER: I still lookup to him (Cleese) because although I
have money, I am vulgar. But I am not as vulgar as him
(Corbett) so I still look down on him (Corbett).
CORBETT: I know my place. I look up to them both; but while I am
poor, I am honest, industrious and trustworthy. Had I
the inclination, I could look down on them. But
BARKER: We all know our place, but what do we get out of it?
CLEESE: I get a feeling of superiority over them.
BARKER: I get a feeling of inferiority from him, (Cleese), but
a feeling of superiority over him (Corbett).
CORBETT: I get a pain in the back of my neck.
