Knickers

A word that gets thrown around a lot on Monty Python is "knickers." A good example is the lingerie shop robbery sketch:


The context is usually revolving around ladies, so it may seem obvious, but let's assume it's not and define it. What are knickers? Knickers are a British word for ladies' underwear, what Americans call panties. "Knickers" sounds naughtier.

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.

Knickers does sound more naughty than panties.
