* Blackadder's ploy to get out of the trenches by pretending to be mad involves stuffing two pencils up his nose, putting his underpants on his head, and just saying "Wibble" as an answer to any question. Unfortunately, he has to abandon the idea when he overhears Melchett saying he once shot an entire platoon in the Sudan for trying that very scheme.
