Episode Quotes
Prince George: Why on earth would an anarchist possibly want to kill you?
Blackadder: I think it might've been you he was after, sir.
Prince George: Oh hogwash! What on earth makes you say that?
Blackadder: Well, my suspicions were first aroused by his use of the words, "Death to the stupid Prince."

Keanrick: Why, your very posture tells me, "Here is a man of true greatness."
Blackadder: Either that or "Here are my genitals, please kick them."
Mossop: Sir, I really must ask that this ill educated oaf be removed from the room.
Keanrick: (to Blackadder) Yes, get out, sir! Your presence here is as useful as fine-bone china at a tea party for drunken elephants!

Blackadder: Gentlemen, I've come with a proposition.
Mossop: How dare you, sir. You think, just because we're actors, we sleep with everyone.
Blackadder: I think, being actors, you're lucky to sleep with anyone.

Baldrick: My uncle Baldrick was in a play once.
Blackadder: Really?
Baldrick: Yeah, it was called Macbeth.
Blackadder: And what did he play?
Baldrick: Second codpiece. Macbeth wore him in the fight scenes.
Blackadder: So he was a stunt codpiece.
Baldrick: Yes.
Blackadder: Did he have a large part?
Baldrick: Depends who's playing Macbeth.

Keanrick: Your royal highness, may I say what a great honour it is to be invited here?
Prince: Why certainly.
Keanrick: Thank you. (Speaks boisterously) What a great honour that it is to be invited here to make merry in the halls of our King's loin's most glorious outpouring.



Episode Goofs
In the "Help Wanted" section of The Times, Napoleon Bonaparte is looking for someone to be King of Sardinia. Napoleon conquered the larger mainland (Piedmont) portion of the kingdom in 1798 and annexed it in 1802, but never the island itself. King Victor Emmanuel I of Sardinia was restored to his full dominions in 1814.
