'''Blackadder:''' So, your father's German, you're half-German and you married a German?[[note]]In fact, although Queen Victoria was indeed half-German, it was her mother Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld who was German. Her father Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn, while a fourth-generation German immigrant, was English by birth, upbringing and culture, though his father was German noble from the Welfen Dynasty, who was also King of Hannover, while his mother was a German princess from Mecklenburg.

Added DiffLines:

* NotAnAct: Blackadder has had a man executed prematurely without anyone knowing, but the man's wife begs the queen for one last meeting. Blackadder is forced to impersonate him lest ''he'' get the chop, and does so with a bag over his head, insisting on Baldrick only allowing them two minutes. Blackadder manages to impersonate the husband to the point where she starts to go down on him, which of course is the moment an unusually-competent Baldrick comes in to declare that their time's up. Blackadder's "No it isn't" is entirely heartfelt.

Added DiffLines:

* SwitchToEnglish: Inverted in Back and Forth. The Roman-era characters all speak in English...until Melchett compliments them for practising the language, and switches to Latin.

* FreudWasRight: In-universe; she doesn't realise it, but Queenie's description of her dreams suggest that the Virgin Queen badly wants to get laid:
-->I have some pretty wild dreams you know. The other day I dreamt [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar there was this big tree, and I was sitting right on top of it... and then I dreamt I was a sausage roll]]...

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Blackadder tries and fails to do this several times. He tries to desert in "Major Star" after learning the Russians have pulled out of the war due to the Revolution, only to run straight into Melchett, [[Irony who asks for his help in shooting some deserters later]].
