First broadcast on 9 January 1986.
Blackadder finds his new manservant, 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: not only the best man but also 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.
Baldrick: Not to worry my lord, the arrow didn't in fact enter my body.
Insult of the Episode
Blackadder on Baldrick: Kate, he looks like what he is: a dung ball in a dress.
