    • TRIVIA (1)

      • End Credit Lyrics: Sir Francis and Sir Walter had
        Discovered new worlds and new nations;
        And though Black Adder thought them mad,
        He tried his hand at navigation.

        Blackadder, Blackadder,
        He saw the ocean's foam.
        Blackadder, Blackadder.
        He should have stayed at home.

        Blackadder, Blackadder,
        He heard the new world's call.
        Blackadder, Blackadder,
        Discovered bugger-all.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Blackadder: Better a lapdog to a slip of a girl than a . . . . git!

      • Sir Walter Raleigh: I have brought her gifts and dominions beyond her wildest dreams!
        Elizabeth: Are you sure? Well, I have some pretty wild dreams, you know. I don't know what they mean but the other day there was this enormous tree and I was sitting right on top of it.
        Melchett: Ma'am.
        Elizabeth: And then I dreamt once that I was a sausage roll.

      • (Elizabeth has done a poor pirate imitation)
        Melchett: I big your pardon, my lady, I was wanting to greet the gallant sailor who hallooed me as I came in. Perchance he has hauled anchor and sailed away.
        Elizabeth: No. It was me.
        Melchett: Majesty, surely not!
        Blackadder: You utter creep.

      • (Blackadder shows Baldrick a potato)
        Blackadder: I mean, look at this. What is it?
        Baldrick: I'm surprised you've forgotten, my lord.
        Blackadder: I haven't forgotten; it's a rhetorical question.
        Baldrick: No, it's a potato.

      • Queen Elizabeth: It's him. Oh, God. Do I look absolutely divine and regal, and yet and at the same time very pretty and rather accessible?

      • The Captain: You have a woman's bottom, my lady!
