Miranda Richardson: Queen Elizabeth I


  • Queen Elizabeth : [knock at door]  Who is it?

    Lord Melchett : It is I, your majesty.

    Queen Elizabeth : Stop! Close your eyes. Now enter.

    [Blackadder and Melchett enter. Melchett has his hand over his eyes] 

    Queen Elizabeth : [doing a very bad imitation of a sailor]  Ahoy there me shivering matey, heave-ho.

    [normal voice] 

    Queen Elizabeth : Right, now open your eyes.

    Lord Melchett : [uncovers eyes]  Thank you ma'am. And um...

    [looks around room] 

    Queen Elizabeth : [practically squealing with delight]  What's the matter Melchie?

    Lord Melchett : [very obviously humouring her]  Well I beg your pardon your majesty, but I was hoping to greet the gallant young sailor who hallooed me as I came in. Perchance he has hauled anchor and sailed away.

    Queen Elizabeth : [mischievously]  No. It was me!

    Lord Melchett : Majesty! Surely not.

    Blackadder : You utter creep.

  • Queen Elizabeth : It's him. Oh, God. Do I look absolutely divine and regal, and yet and at the same time very pretty and rather accessible?

  • Queen Elizabeth : Oh, and Edmund was right. You do smell like fish. PHOOHEY!
