When you’re the only one who doesn’t do fancy dress | Blackadder – BBC


– Coming?
– No. It’ll be a once in a lifetime experience. No it won’t. – Everybody’s going.
– Don’t exaggerate, Percy. I’m not going, Mrs Miggins
from the pie shop isn’t going. You know perfectly well that Mrs Miggins
is bedridden from the nose down. And besides, she is honouring the occasion
by baking a great commemorative pie, in the shape of an enormous pie! What an imagination that woman has. Come on, Edmund! The greatest
explorer of our age is coming home. The streets have never been so gay! Women are laughing, children singing… Look! There’s a man being indecently assaulted by nine
foreign sailors and he’s still got a smile on his face! Look, Percy, the return of Sir Walter “Oh, what a big ship
I’ve got” Raleigh is a matter of supreme indifference to me. Look, if you’re not careful, all the children will dance about outside your window singing “sourpuss” and “grumpy face”, – and you wouldn’t want that, would you?
– I believe I could survive it. Now, Percy, will you get out before I cut
your head off, scoop out the insides, and give it to your mother as a vase! What a clot. The most absurdly dressed
creature in Christendom. With one exception. – My Lord?
– Baldrick, you look like a deer. Thank you, My Lord. You look a bit of a duckie yourself. What do you want? I was wondering if I might
have the afternoon off? Who do you think you are? Watt Tyler? You can have the afternoon
off when you die, not before. I want to cheer brave Sir Walter home. Today I feel proud to be a member
of the greatest Kingdom in the world. And doubtless many other members of
the animal kingdom feel the same way. Look, will you shut up?! Bloody explorers, ponce off to Mumbo-Jumbo-land,
come home with a tropical disease, a suntan and a bag of brown lumpy things, and
everyone’s got a picture of them in the lavatory. – I mean, what about the people that do all the work?
– Servants? No, me! I’m the people
who do all the work. I mean, look at this. What is it? I’m surprised you’ve
forgotten, My Lord. – I haven’t forgotten. It’s a rhetorical question.
– No, it’s a potato. To you it’s a potato, to me it’s a potato. But to Sir Walter Bloody Raleigh it’s country estates,
fine carriages as many girls as his tongue can cope with. He’s making a fortune out of the things.
People are smoking them, building houses out of them… They’ll be eating them next. Edmund comes in and says, “Hello, Baldrick.
You haven’t seen Percy, have you?” And you say… No, My Lord, I haven’t seen him all day. Brilliant! Oh, my God, here he comes! Hello, Balders. Where the hell’s that cretin
Percy? Have you seen him? Yes, My Lord! He’s hiding in the box!

  2. I can totally live in harmony with lord black adder….. The last time I had this feeling was when I use to watch Sheldon Cooper just being simply sarcastic and terse.

  3. BBC…
    What's with that emoticon on the thumbnail, and the GODDAMN title? Who are you trying to appeal to? Honestly, never expected this sort of thing from the BBC.

  4. Please, BBC, don't put smileys or emojis or whatever they are called in your thumbnails. That's low-level teen stuff that everybody can do without. Please tell your young person who makes the thumbnails art.
