  • Quotes (14)

    • Blackadder: I then leapt on the opportunity to test you. I asked if he'd been to one of the great universities: Oxford, Cambridge, or Hull. Nurse Fletcher-Brown: Well? Blackadder: You failed to spot that only two of those are great universities! Nurse Fletcher-Brown: You swine! Melchett: That's right! Oxford's a complete dump!

    • General Melchett: If there's one thing I've learnt in the army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh!

    • Darling: Look, I'm as British as Queen Victoria. Blackadder: (furiously) So your father's German, you're half German and you married a German? Darling:(crying) No! No! Look, for God's sake, I'm not a German spy! Blackadder: (calmly; politely) Good. Thanks very much. Send in the next man, would you?

    • Blackadder: What is the colour of the Queen of England's favourite hat? Darling: How the hell should I know?! Blackadder: (completely deadpan) I see…Well, let me ask you another question. What is the name of the German head of state? Darling: Well, Kaiser Wilhelm, obviously. Blackadder: (furiously) So you're on first name terms with the kaiser, are you?

    • Nurse Mary: Ah, Captain. I hope you're going to conduct yourself with a little more decorum this time. Blackadder: No, I'm going to conduct myself with no decorum. Shove off!

    Trivia (2)

    • When Nurse Mary is sent out to get shot, Melchett never actually call the firing squad, but still George is seeing the nurse led out to the squad.

    • Private Baldrick's failure to grasp the concept of I-Spy is a little similar to a scene in Season 3's 'Ink and Incapability,' where his Regency ancestor attempts to define words for Blackadder's attempt to rewrite the English dictionary.
