"Yiddip!"

Crippled by mounting debts ( whatever happened to the reward money he got at the end of 'Long Day's Journey Into Knighthood'? ), Duncan proposes to Annabelle, but she gets wise to him and refuses.

He enlists in the Navy, where the pay is better. The next morning, however, Annabelle changes her mind, and he pleads with Dick and Paul to help him get out. Due for a psychiatric test, Duncan tries to appear mad. There's one small problem, however, the naval psychiatrist is mad also...

Hilarious if somewhat unbelievable episode. There's a Pythoneseque feel to the scene where Duncan, dressed as a frogman, gatecrashes a marching-out parade, hopping about in time to 'A Life On The Ocean Wave'. Just what you'd expect from Graham Chapman. Some of the ratings have difficulty keeping straight faces. Angharad Rees makes her final appearance as 'Annabel Davenport'. The idea of 'trying to get out of the military by feigning insanity' was later used in the final episode of 'Blackadder Goes Forth'.
