-->'''Aethelhelm''': I can find my way to an alehouse, Father Beocca. You are dismissed.
-->'''Beocca''': Of course, lord. ''[under his breath]'' And may you choke on your oysters!
-->'''Aethelhelm''': What was that?!

** Father Pyrlig, meanwhile, is even more upfront with his dislike of Aethelhelm
--->'''Aethelhelm:''' This move to the Palace is long overdue. But it comes at a bad time.
--->'''Father Pyrlig:''' Were you busy bedding alehouse whore?


Added DiffLines:

* After learning how to successfully kill Skade and her curse, Uhtred declares that they will leave to recover Skade. Finan points out that she's in a camp surrounded by more than 2,000 sword-Danes, but Uhtred says it can be done.
-->'''Osferth:''' How?
-->'''Uhtred:''' With God's help.
-->'''Aethelflaed:''' ''(stares in surprise)''

!!Season Four

Added DiffLines:

** Later, after Uhtred has accepted Edward's offer to become Lord of Mercia:
--->'''Finan:''' Finally he can pay us some silver!\\
'''Pyrlig:''' I very much doubt that.

Added DiffLines:

* Father Pyrlig asks why Uhtred is reluctant to become Lord and Protector of Mercia
-->'''Pyrlig:''' Apart from the silver, the power, and saving the woman you love, what is holding you back?\\
'''Uhtred:''' Giving my loyalty to another Saxon King. I swore to myself I would not do that.\\
'''Pyrlig:''' I swear I will not drink too much ale and I frequently go back on my word. ''(takes a gulp from his mug)''


-->'''Beocca''': Yes, Lord, I wil... With ale.

to:

-->'''Beocca''': Yes, Lord, I wil...will... With ale.

Added DiffLines:

* While Finan, Sihtric, and Osferth are in a MexicanStandoff with Steapa and the Palace Guards who have come to arrest Uhtred, Hild tells them to stop the pissing contest and walks into the house Uhtred has taken refuge in. When Steapa asks why they're refusing him but allowing Hild inside, Finan admits it's because they're afraid of the Abbess.


-->'''Alfred''': Wash your mouth out, Father Beocca.
-->'''Beocca''': Yes, my lord. With ale.

-->'''Alfred''': Wash Beocca, you should wash out your mouth out, Father Beocca.

* From Season 2: When Uhtred, Ragnar, Steapa and Hild storm in on [[spoiler: Eadred trying to force Gisela into an ArrangedMarriage by proxy with Aelfric. When Eadred gleefully remarks that in the eyes of God, Gisela and Aelfric are now man and wife and there is nothing Uhtred can do about it, Ragnar cheerfully snarks from by the door "Make her a widow". Cue a MassOhCrap from Eadred and all his lackies present, particularly the underling of Aelfric's who stood in for him at the wedding.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Uhtred gradually gains Leofric's respect during their practice skirmishes, receiving a genuine compliment when demonstrating a Danish shield wall. Unfortunately, he happens to be standing ''in front'' of it when Leofric gives the order to charge.


* Aethelwold's SarcasmMode repentant speech about lust CrossesTheLineTwice, wins a jeering crowd over ''and'' gets in a jab at Alfred's own indiscretions, doubling as an awesome moment for him. Made funnier by the big grin he makes as he figures out what to do.

to:

* Athelred murders a servant after he is informed Aethelflaed has fled. [[HypercompetentSidekick Aldheim]] looks and sounds like he's utterly done with this idiot.
--> '''Aldheim''': Lord, you can not simply execute subjects as you please. This is the ninth century.

Added DiffLines:


* Beocca gets some hilarious moments in Season 3. In the first episode, where Haesten, now a seeming ally of Alfred, makes one mysognist comment too many about Aethelflaed, who he still has a grudge against, Beocca quickly shuts him down.
-->'''Beocca''': Say one more word about the Lady Aethelflaed, and I'll shove that food so far down your throat, you'll be shitting it out seconds later!
-->'''Uhtred''': It's true, I've seen him do it. It's a small miracle.
** After having to deal with the snobbish and [[EntitledBastard ungrateful]] lord Aethelhelm, Beocca gets in a good ServileSnarker dig.
-->'''Aethelhelm''': I can find my way to an alehouse, Father Beocca. You are dismissed.
-->'''Beocca''': Of course, lord. ''[under his breath]'' And may you choke on your oysters!
-->'''Aethelhelm''': What was that?!
-->'''Beocca''': ''[smiling like butter wouldn't melt]] [[BlatantLies Try the oysters, lord. They are a delight]].
* When Uhtred and his army are ambushed by Haesten, Haesten offers them [[YouWillBeSpared a chance to live if they surrender Uhtred to him]]. Finan makes their thoughts on the matter clear.
-->'''Haesten''': I only want Uhtred! Give him up and the rest of you will go free!
-->'''Finan''': [[ScrewYourUltimatum What you will get, Haesten]] [[AssShove is my sword up your hairy arse!]]
* The looks of [[PassThePopcorn genuine amusment]] on Uhtred, Finan, Sihtric and even Osferth's faces as they watch Father Beocca beat the shit out of a racist, misogynst thug of Aethelwold's who's been harrassing Thyra. They briefly pull him off the man...then let Beocca give the man a bit more of a kicking for good measure.


-->'''Beocca''': [[ServileSnarker While if you die in battle here, Aethelwold, I'll make sure they write it!]]

to:

-->'''Beocca''': [[ServileSnarker While Well if you die in battle here, Aethelwold, I'll make sure they write it!]]


-->'''Ragnar the Younger''': Uhtred, I'm growing bored with this, [[KillEmAll kill them all]]!

to:

-->'''Ragnar the Younger''': [[ComedicSociopathy Uhtred, I'm growing bored with this, [[KillEmAll kill them all]]!all]]!
* Season 2 shows Aethelwold has not lost his capacity for snarking. Consider the below example during a feast at Wessex where the guest of honour, Lord Ceowulf of Mercia, promptly has a heart attack mid-rant.
-->'''Aelswith''': Perhaps a cup of water for the Lord Ceowulf? ''[Ceowulf promptly expires]''
-->'''Aethelwold''': ''[completely deadpan]'' A hole in the ground might be of more use.
** Also this retort to him from Beocca just before the siege of Dunholm.
-->'''Aethelwold''': This is madness! The rightful king of Wessex helping to avenge the death of a big, hairy Viking! Still, it'll make a good song.
-->'''Beocca''': [[ServileSnarker While if you die in battle here, Aethelwold, I'll make sure they write it!]]
