* Edmund almost succeeding in making himself the Prince Regent by proving that his brother Harry is illegitimate. It's only ruined because he accidently read the date on the letters and realized that HE was the bastard, not Harry. Harry had already agreed to give up his claim to the throne and go into exile-- if Edmund hadn't kept reading, the show would have been two episodes long.

* The last scene of ''Blackadder Goes Forth'' was a DyingMomentOfAwesome for the entire cast (sans Melchett). In terms of meta, the editors and the BBC earn their own moment of awesome: using the existing crappy-acted footage and slow it down significantly to turn it into one of the most impactful ending in television[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbR9-etyN6I]], and then having the guts to broadcast the episode on Remembrance Sunday with only one complaint.

* The Great Booze-Up monologue, mentioned in the Funny page, is also this. Come on, that's some serious on-the-fly thinking (while drunk, no less!) to come up with an explanation that fast, from scratch, and actually make it WORK.
