There's a ticket out of the trenches and into the West End of London for Blackadder if he can successfully organise a concert party to raise morale back home.

Somehow, Blackadder manages to overcome his loathing of music hall and stages an unforgettable show, featuring Baldrick's Charlie Chaplin impersonation, and a drag act from Lieutenant George.

Things take a turn for the worse when Melchett proposes to "Gorgeous Georgina", and Blackadder is forced to tell Melchett that his leading lady was killed while dancing home from the ball. Blackadder is left with no show, and the grim prospect of screening Charlie Chaplin films twice a day for the rest of the war.

quote Blackadder: 'Everything goes over your head, doesn't it, George? You should go to Jamaica and become a limbo dancer.'

quote Blackadder: 'Personally I thought you were the least convincing female impressionist since Tarzan went through Jane's handbag and ate her lipstick, but I'm clearly in a minority.'

quote Blackadder: 'We're in the stickiest situation since Sticky the Stick Insect got stuck on a sticky bun.'

brush up
war Blackadder: 'A war hasn't been fought this badly since Olaf the Hairy, High Chief of all the Vikings, accidentally ordered 80,000 battle helmets with the horns on the inside.'

Tally Ho George rather enjoyed being wooed by the General: 'We tired the moon with our talking about everything and nothing: the war, marriage, the proposed changed to the LBW rule...'

Insult of the episode Blackadder: 'Baldrick, in the Amazonian rain forests there are tribes of Indians as yet untouched by civilisation who have developed more convincing Charlie Chaplin impressions than yours.'
