Has to be Blackadder 3 with the dictionary episode:-
Right, let's get the book. Now; Baldrick, where's the manuscript?
You mean the big papery thing tied up with string?
Yes, Baldrick -- the manuscript belonging to Dr. Johnson.
You mean the baity fellow in the black coat who just left?
Yes, Baldrick -- Dr. Johnson.
So you're asking where the big papery thing tied up with string belonging to the baity fellow in the black coat who just left is.
Yes, Baldrick, I am, and if you don't answer, then the booted bony thing with five toes at the end of my leg will soon connect sharply with the soft dangly collection of objects in your trousers. For the last time, Baldrick, where is Dr. Johnson's manuscript?
On the fire.
Black Adder 2 -Money 'Baby eating Bishop of Bath and Wells'
"I am a collosal pervert, not form of sexual degradation is too low for me. Animal, vegetable or mineral, I'll do anything to anything."
Black adder 3 - the Scarlet Pimpernel episode (the french ambassador)
" On the contrary, I hate you English with your shiny toilet paper and boring trousers, and your ridiculous preconception that we French are fantastic lovers. I'm French and i'm hung like a baby carrot and a couple of petits pois."
Black Adder The Third. Dual and Duality. Where Stephen Fry plays the Duke of Wellington.
..."The men had a whip round and got you this.Well, what I mean is, I had the men roundly whipped until they got you this. A cigarillo case, engraved with the regimental crest of two crossed dead Frenchmen emblazoned over a mound of dead Frenchmen motif."
Classic. Maybe Arrsewater could use this as their motif too.
We've got the four disc complete four series at home - £40 well spent! My wife is Bretonne (all the jokes have been done before, thanks) and I didn't know if she'd get it. She now has Blackadder marathons when I'm away. Legend.
Favourite? Too many to choose from, although Private Plane is gleaming, as is Corporal Punishment - the "Flanders Pigeon Murderer!"
Blackadder the Third, 'Dual & Duality', when Blackadder agrees to pretend to be the Prince & fight a dual with the Duke of Wellington:
Blackadder : Tell me do you ever stop bullying and shouting at the lower orders?
Wellington : NEVER! There's only one way to win a campaign shout, shout and shout again.
Blackadder : You don't think that inspired leadership and tactical ability have anything to do with it?
Wellington : NO! It's all down to shouting. WAAGGHH!
