Quotes: Sweet Polly Oliver
"Oh, my stars and comets!
He's a she!"
So you're a chap, are you, Bob? Bob:
Oh yes, sir. [Bursts out laughing for no reason and growls like a tiger] Blackadder: [Not fooled for a minute]
You wouldn't say that you were a girl
, at all? Bob: [nervously]
Oh, definitely not sir! I understand cricket, I fart in bed, everything. Blackadder:
Let me put it another way, Bob. You are
a girl. And you're a girl with as much talent for disguise as a giraffe in dark glasses trying to get into a "Polar bears only" golf club.
Many a dark night, in the guardroom I have lain,
I never was afraid to lie down among the men,
And taking off my clothes, I often gave a smile,
To think I lay with soldiers, but a maiden all the while.
— Robin Laing, Soldier Maid
