Re: The Royal Flying Corps

Blackadder - "I don't care how many times they go up-diddly-up-up, they're still gits!"

Re: Your number being up.

Baldrick - "I'm carving my name on this bullet, sir." "You know how they say there's bullet with your name on it? I figure if I owns the bullet, I won't get hit by it."

"Boom Boom Boom."

"Remember, how could I forget, there was no way I was off side."

"Good Luck everyone"

"Aah..Darling."

and on and on.....

As comedy/satire brilliant. As helping to reinforce, nay drive home a myth, bloody decisive.

Captain Blackadder: [describing the latest offensive] Field Marshal Haig is about to make yet another gargantuan effort to move his drinks cabinet six inches close to Berlin

Darling: Are you sure this is what you saw Blackadder?

Blackadder: Absolutely. I mean there may have been a few more armament factories, and not quite as many elephants, but...

When Captain Blackadder turns to his mates and says

"Men; We are facing death so that anoraks in the 21st century may put up a thread asking fellow anoraks to put words in our mouths which will appear to be a serious history discussion. I've only one thing to say to you men - It's all pure fiction, not to be confused with real history"

Exit Blackadder, and is killed by an exocet missile.

"Tomorrow we attack the germans"

"Let me guess Sir, we climb out of our trenches and do a frontal assault"

"Damm it Blackadder, that's supposed to be a secret"

"We've tried it 17 times before and always failed"

"Ah, but they will never expect it an 18th time!"

Oh dear, so many to choose from ....

"The British Empire at present covers a quarter of the globe, while the German Empire consists of a small sausage factory in Tanganyika."

"We've advanced no further than an asthmatic ant carrying some heavy shopping."

And everything said by Flashheart, of course. :lol:

Oh yes the drinks cabinet gets my vote, plus

George: So we're a bit stuck.

...

Edmund: You can say that again, George. We're in a stickier situation since

Sticky the Stick Insect got stuck on a sticky bun. We are in trouble.

Melchett: I think you'll find Bob just the man for this job, Blackadder. He has a splendid sense of humour.

Edmund: He sir? He? He?

Melchett: You see, you're laughing already! :D

Blackadder: "A War hasn't been so badly managed, since 'Olaf The Hairy' ordered a thousand

Viking helmets with the horns on the inside!"

George to Smith in hospital...

"I say, Smith, have you seen any German spies around here?"

Smith, "Nein."

George, "Nine!"

Most used in normal life has to be "Deny everything, Baldrick" - a multitude of circumstances covered by those three little words...

A favourite not yet mentioned:

George: Oh, one thing, sir. If we should happen to tread on a mine, what do we do?

B/adder: Well, normal procedure is to jump 200 feet into the air and scatter yourself over a wide area.

My personal favourites

Edmund: You see, Baldrick, in order to prevent war in Europe, two superblocs

developed: us, the French and the Russians on one side, and the

Germans and Austro-Hungary on the other. The idea was to have two

vast opposing armies, each acting as the other's deterrent. That way

there could never be a war.

Baldrick: But this is a sort of a war, isn't it, sir?

Edmund: Yes, that's right. You see, there was a tiny flaw in the plan.

George: What was that, sir?

Edmund: It was b******s.

My favourites are:

"George, who's using the family brain-cell at the moment?"

"If nothing else works, then a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through."

"I think the phrase rhymes with `clucking bell'."

So good I put that one in my signature a few years ago ;)

The complete scripts for Goes Forth can be found below:

My favourite Blackadder put down is the following though:

[baldrick stops droning on as BA interjects a third time.]

BA - Baldrick, what are you doing?

Baldrick - I'm a Sopwith Camel, Sir.

BA - Oh, it is a Sopwith Camel. Ah, right, I always get confused between the sound of a Sopwith Camel and the sound of a malodourous runt wasting everybodys time.

"Sir, I have a cunning plan". By Baldrick -surely the longest running joke in any series?
