The Prince is understandably worried about his popularity after an anarchist throws a bomb at him. He agrees to recite a brilliant speech by Blackadder, "to show the oppressed masses how unusually sensitive you are" and decides that he wants his two favourite actors - Mr David Keanrick and Mr Enoch Mossop - to coach him.

Baldrick overhears the actors rehearsing some lines from their latest play, The Bloody Murder of the Foul Prince Romero and His Enormously Bosomed Wife. Blackadder is only too happy to let the Prince arrest the actors for treason, since they called him, "a mere butler with the intellectual capacity of a squashed apricot."

quote Blackadder (on actors): You mean they actually rehearse? I thought they just got drunk, stuck on silly hats and trusted to luck.

quote Baldrick: Well, Mr Blackadder always says, when the going gets tough, the tough hide under the table.

quote George: Oh no! What a mad blundering, incredibly handsome young nincompoop I've been!

quote Blackadder: They do say, Mrs M, that verbal insults hurt more than physical pain. They are, of course, wrong, as you will soon discover when I stick this toasting fork into your head.

1766 and all that
1766 At this revolutionary time, there were rumblings in Prussia, although it was thought that this might be something to do with the sausages.

Hail Prince George George: "I'm fed up with you treating me as if I'm some kind of a thicky! It's not me that's thick - it's you, and you know why? Because I'm a bloody Prince, and you're only a butler! Now, go and get those actors this minute, Mr Thicky Black Thicky Adder Thicky.

Insult of the episode Blackadder: Baldrick, I would like to say how much I will miss your honest, friendly companionship.
Baldrick: Thank you, Mr B.
Blackadder: But, as we both know, it would be an utter lie. I will therefore confine myself to saying simply, 'Sod off and if I ever meet you again, it will be twenty billion years too soon.'
