** On seeing Pitt, George remarks he seems like the sort of person who George would have used as a toast-rack at school. This prompts Pitt to give a speech on how that ''used'' to be him, which motivated him to take office and "fight sloth and ignorance" wherever he found it. Then Blackadder chimes in.

* In a bid to shed his image as a thicko, Prince George is planning to accept Dr Creator/SamuelJohnson's request for royal patronage of the dictionary he has just spent ten years writing. Blackadder, however, is miffed at Dr Johnson for never getting back to him about the possibility of publishing his novel ''Edmund: A Butler's Tale'', which he spent seven years writing, and so has some SesquipedalianLoquaciousness with the literary man as a way of winding him up[[note]]The Fridge Brilliance about these words is that even though they're invented, they all mean something appropriate. "contrafibularatories" derives from "contra-", Latin for "against", and "fibula", the calf-bone--Blackadder is pulling Johnson's leg. "Anaspeptic" comes from Greek "ana-", ("back/up"), and "peptic", meaning the stomach--so "anaspeptic" suggests "upchuck". "Phrasmotic" suggests a combination of "frazzled" and "spasmodic". "Compunctuous" is a misspelling of "compunctious", derived from "compunction", a real word meaning the feeling of uneasiness caused by guilt. "Periconbobulation" combines the Greek "peri-", "around", with "discombobulate", meaning "to confuse", appropriate since Blackadder is confusing Johnson from several different directions at once.[[/note]]:

* Dr Johnson has three literary acolytes waiting to receive him at Mrs Miggins' coffee shop: Creator/SamuelTaylorColeridge, Creator/PercyByssheShelley, and [[Creator/LordByron George, Lord Byron]].[[note]] Anachronistically so; Johnson died in 1784, while Coleridge was born in 1772, Byron in 1788, and Shelley in 1792.[[/note]] They all wear identical baggy white shirts with frilly collars and cuffs and no jackets, are blazed out of their minds on opium, and are convinced they are going to die at any moment.

* To Blackadder's horror, it is not until he and Prince George have contributed (Blackadder deliberately, George by being, well, George) to the collapse of the royal patronage of the dictionary that Dr Johnson reveals that he ''did'' read ''Edmund: A Butler's Tale'', and considers it the only book superior to his dictionary, predicting that if it weren't for the lack of royal patronage, its publication would make him and Gertrude Perkins (the female pseudonym Blackadder adopted to write the book) millionaires. Fortunately, Johnson has left the dictionary behind in his haste to leave, so Blackadder offers to fetch it and try to get the prince interested in it again. Unfortunately, Baldrick has thrown the manuscript for the dictionary on the fire:
