[Referring to a suicide pill they have both been given, after being captured by French revolutionaries]

Baldrick: I'm glad to say you won't be needing that pill, Mr. B.

Blackadder: Well, forgive me if I don't do a cartwheel of joy; your record in this department is hardly 100%. So what is it?

Blackadder: Yup, it's another world-beater.

Baldrick: No, wait. We do nothing... until our heads have actually been cut off.

Blackadder: And then we... spring into action?

Blackadder: We hate the French! We fight wars against the French! Did all those men die in vain on the fields of Agincourt? Was the man who burned Joan of Arc just wasting good matches?
