  Edmund and BobBells
is this your favourite episode? Vote

Blackadder finds his new servant, Bob, curiously pleasant company. So much so, that he almost kisses him.

Afraid for his position at court, Blackadder searches for a "cure", until Bob conveniently reveals that she is in fact a girl called Kate.

Their wedding is spectacularly ruined by the appearance of Lord Flashheart, the best man: the best sword, the best shot, the best sailor and the best kisser in the kingdom. In keeping with the cross-dressing courtship, Kate and Flashhart exchange clothes and elope together, leaving Blackadder with the enticing prospect of marrying Baldrick the bridesmaid.

quotes
quote Blackadder: 'Yes, it is', not 'That it be'. You don't have to talk in that stupid voice to me. I'm not a tourist.

quote Flashheart: Thanks, Bridesmaid. Like the beard. Gives me something to hang on to.

quote Flashheart: She's got a tongue like an electric eel and she likes the taste of a man's tonsils.

brush up
shakespeare "To Dover at once!". In King Lear, just about everyone is trying to find their way to Dover.

"Hail Edmund, Lord of Adders Black!" The Wise Woman's greeting sounds suspiciously similar to the witches in Macbeth.

Blackadder says "kiss me Kate", just like Petruchio in The Taming of the Shrew.

The whole plot. Plucky heroine dresses as boy and falls in love - hello, As You Like It, Two Gentlemen of Verona, but most of all, Twelfth Night.

Baldrick's wisdom Baldrick: Not to worry my lord, the arrow didn't in fact enter my body.
Blackadder: Oh good.
Baldrick: No, by a thousand to one chance my willy got in the way.

Insult of the episode Blackadder on Baldrick: Kate, he looks like what he is: a dung ball in a dress.

Song lyrics
Song lyrics So Flashheart tweaked the Adders beard,
From now he always shall be single.
To fall in love with boys is weird,
especially boys without a tingle.

Blackadder, Blackadder.
His taste is rather odd.
Blackadder, Blackadder,
The randy little sod.

Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart,
I wish you were the star.
Lord Flashheart, Lord Flashheart,
You're sexier by far.
