30,995.  George really set the tone of the age and he was a notoriously extravagant character.  (England & Great Britain & George IV)  Dr Lucy Worsley, Elegance and Decadence: The Age of the Regency 1/3

Blackadder:  Not really, Mr Hanna.  You see Mr Baldrick may look like a monkey that’s been put in a suit and then strategically shaved, but he is a brilliant politician.  The number of votes I cast is simply a reflection of how firmly I believe in his policies.  (England & George IV & Politics)  ibid.

 

 

31,066.  I shall become best friends with the cleverest man in England.  That renowned brainbox Dr Samuel Johnson has asked me to be patron of his new book and I intend to accept.  (England & George IV & Dictionary & Book)  Blackadder III: Ink & Incapability, Prince to Blackadder

31,070.  So you’re asking where the big papery thing tied up with string belonging to the batey fellow in the black coat who just left is?  (England & George IV & Dictionary & Book)  ibid.  Baldrick to Blackadder

 

31,071.  Mrs Miggins, there’s nothing intellectual about wandering around Italy in a big shirt trying to get laid.  (England & George IV)  ibid.  Blackadder

31,079.  I charge you now, Baldrick, for the good of all mankind never allow curiosity to lead you to open your trousers.  Nothing of interest lies therein.  (England & George IV & Clothes)  ibid.  Blackadder

 

31,080.  We hate liars, bounders and cads, don’t we, Blackadder?  (England & George IV)  ibid.  Prince Regent

 

 

31,081.  These are volatile times, your Highness.  The American Revolution lost your father the colonies; the French Revolution murdered brave King Louis, and there are tremendous rumblings in Prussia.  Although that might be something to do with the sausages.  (England & George IV & Revolution)  Curtis & Elton, Blackadder III: Sense & Senility, Blackadder to Prince
