    The context of the skit from Monty Python was a married man was talking to a stranger. The stranger started asking him personal questions about his sex life. But he wouldn't come out and say it so he would say "wink wink nudge nudge" and "say no more" when the man would innocently try to answer

    here just watch the sketch

    Wink Wink Nudge Nudge

  • 10 years ago

    The phrase is part of "nudge nudge wink wink, know what I mean? Say no more, say no more, a nod's as good as a wink to a blind man"

    It implies that not everything is being said clearly and completely, that some message is implied. The question "Does she like candid photography?" implies that she may like to have "naughty" photos taken of her.

    The irony and great humor of this bit is that the questioner, played by Eric Idle, has not a clue of what he's talking about.

    For a good answer, you'd need to give more context.

    However, people usually say it to draw attention to a double entendre they may have made.

    For example:

    "I'm going on a date with my girl tonight"

    "Well be sure to show her a _good time_. Nudge nudge, wink wink."

    The second person is trying to draw attention that the "good time" he talks about means more than just in the context of the date (ie. sex).

    It's a gesture that accompanies an innuendo. Example: Your dad says, "I just got a $5,000 bonus at work. I wonder what I should do with it." and you say, "You could buy a new car for your favorite child, wink wink nudge nudge."

    It means "I get the joke" and takes the place of actually nudging someone with your elbow and winking. It's a jokey way of implying an unspoken connotation, such a man telling his teenage son, "Little Sally Jones has really grown up, eh, son?" when the neighbor's beautiful daughter waves hello.
