** One more:
-->'''Blackadder:''' Go out into the street and hire me a horse.\\
'''Baldrick:''' Hire you a horse? For ninepence? On Jewish New Year in the rain? A bare fortnight after the dreaded horse plague of Old London Town? With the blacksmiths' strike in its fifteenth week and the Dorset horse fetishists' fair tomorrow?

** A slightly more subtle one: Prince George wishes to "patronize" Samuel Johnson's dictionary. Indeed, when he realises it's not a work of fiction, he isn't very impressed.

* TakeThat: Blackadder discovers Australia; no one cares. Even the minstrel singing during the end credits says he discovered "bugger all".

** "Chains" features a lot of [[FunnyForeigner broad stereotyping]] of Edmund's German and Spanish captors and how they "inconweenience" him.

* ImplausibleDeniability: While attempting to hold a drinking party and a dinner for his ''extremely'' Puritan relatives on the same night in the same house, one of Edmund's drunken revelers bursts into the same room as Lord and Lady Whiteadder and declares "Great booze-up, Edmund!" Edmund attempts to paper over this by claiming that the drunk was actually a missionary sent to deal with a narcoleptic tribesman named "the Great Boo"...

* NaughtyNuns: When he becomes Archbishop of Canterbury, Edmund is surprised to learn from Baldrick that part of his duties include selling the sexual favours of nuns. When he questions who would pay for such a thing, Baldrick casually explains "Well, foreign businessmen, [[LesYay other nuns...]]"

* ContemptCrossfire:
** In the second series, Blackadder has nothing but contempt for Lord Melchett for his constant sucking up to the Queen. Melchett hates him right back, constantly scheming to get Blackadder in trouble with the Queen, but must take great care that the PsychopathicWomanchild not decapitate him on a whim either.
** ''Blackadder Goes Forth'': Captain Blackadder finds himself with an antagonistic relationship with Captain Darling, who abuses his position under General Melchett to make Blackadder's life miserable (and is constantly belittled by Blackadder), but he's ignored and mistreated by the general in turn. It's a sign of just how badly they know they're screwed in the final episode when Darling is volunteered for the big push and neither of them snarks at the other.
