Start a family with Baldrick or Mrs. M?
Amy and Amiability
This quote is from the third series of Blackadder. You can read the full script here >> Amy and Amiability Blackadder. The real question though, is who would you prefer to start a family with? Let’s take a look at Mrs. Miggins.
Played by Helen Atkinson-Wood, Mrs. Miggins is referred to in the second series of Blackadder as owning a Pie Shop. The most memorable reference is probably from the second series with the Baby Eating Bishop of Bath and Wells.read more
One of the main features of the Blackadder character during the third series, was that Blackadder was unhappy with his position in life.
Blackadder in the First Series
Some of this is to deliberately highlight the fact that Blackadder is slowly reducing in social status from the first series. Here, he played the Prince for most of the series, finally being elevated to King on his death bed.read more
Blackadder Goes Forth has some great quotes, including this one below. It’s from the opening scene of Captain Cook, the first episode of Blackadder Goes Forth.
Your brain’s so minute
Here’s part of the scene on YouTube. you can play it from here 😉
And the text from that scene:
Captain Blackadder: Baldrick, what are you doing out there?
Private Baldrick: I’m carving something on a bullet, sir.
Captain Blackadder: What are you craving?
Private Baldrick: I’m carving “Baldrick”, sir.
Captain Blackadder: Why?
Private Baldrick: It’s part of a cunning plan, sir.
Captain Blackadder: Of course it is.
Private Baldrick: You know how they say that somewhere there’s a bullet with your name on it?
Captain Blackadder: Yes?
Private Baldrick: Well I thought that if I owned the bullet with my name on it, I’ll never get hit by it. Cause I’ll never shoot myself…
Captain Blackadder: Oh, shame!
Private Baldrick: And the chances of there being *two* bullets with my name on it are very small indeed.
Captain Blackadder: Yes, it’s not the only thing that is “very small indeed”. Your brain for example- is brain’s so minute, Baldrick, that if a hungry cannibal cracked your head open, there wouldn’t be enough to cover a small water biscuit.read more

When Blackadder met Dr. Samuel Johnson in Ink and Incapability, some beautiful un-words were created. Here’s a look at the Blackadder dictionary.
The Blackadder Dictionary
Have you ever wondered what contrafibularities means? Of course, it is an un-word, a word created for the show. It is also a play-on-words, and is all the more brilliant because you can guess its meaning from how it sounds.
