    i loved blackadder, with it's sharp witted humour. black adder goes forth was my fave episode. some great quotes below. did anyone else love this programme?

    back row:  Darling, Melchett and George.   front row: Blackadder and Baldrick

    Shall I do my war poem?

    How hurt would you be if I gave the honest answer, which is 'I'd rather French-kiss a skunk'?

    So would I, sir.

    Blackadder We've been sitting here since Christmas 1914, during which millions of men have died, & we've advanced no further than an asthmatic ant with some heavy shopping.

    I'm as excited as a really excited person who's got a special reason to be excited.

    I think the phrase rhymes with 'clucking bell.'

    "As the good Lord said, "Love thy neighbor as thyself," unless he's Turkish, in which case kill the Bastard!" -King Richard IV


    "I'm the last meal cook, Sir. The Prisoners ask for what they fancy for their last meal"- Miss Ploppy

    "And you cook for them what they desire?" Blackadder

    "Oh yes sir, provided they ask for sausages. Otherwise they tend to get a tiny bit depressed. Sausages is all I got." -Miss Ploppy

    I loved Blackadder Goes Forth.

    I also like the one with Mr and Mrs Ploppy (although they weren't related!)

    It was the one where Blackadder cut off the wrong person's head off - classic

    Rowan Atkinson is a genius, and so are the writing team of Richard Curtis and Ben Elton. searchfothetruth, I love the pigeon episode as well. I love the way Blackadder talks, he has a brilliant turn of phrase.

    This is what he says about the lawyer:

    I remember Massingbird's most famous case - the Case of the Bloody Knife. A man was found next to the murdered body. He had the knife in his hand, thirteen witnesses had seen him stab the victim, and when the police arrived, he said, "I'm glad I killed the bastard". Massingbird not only got him off, he got him knighted in the New Years Honours list, and the relatives of the deceased had to pay to have the blood washed out of his jacket.

    Sounds like a couple of Elders I've known!
