  • The last ten minutes of Goodbyee.
    • Lieutenant George, possibly the most optimistic man in the trenches, admitting that he is scared, and that he doesn't want to die.
      • We learn earlier in this episode that all of George's good Cambridge friends have been killed, and it's only on the day he is about to die that George truly comes to realise this!
      • Furthermor, though it's mostly tragic in hindsight, Melchett openly offered George a trip out of the trenches, and he didn't take it because he was so excited to go over the top!
    • Something has got to be said about how, when Darling ends up in the trenches after all, when he arrives, Blackadder refers to him as 'Captain Darling', to which he answers 'Captain Blackadder', and there isn't a single scrap of derision from either man when they say this. They are both finally in the same predicament, and both men acknowledge it.
      • What's more, when Captain Darling talks about how he hoped to get through the whole war, go back home to work, play cricket and marry the woman he loves.
    • Baldrick, after learning that all of his animal friends have died in his time in the trenches, erupts into this speech that made this troper wonder which sick, twisted monster had started peeling onions in his presence: "Why can't we just stop, sir? Why would it be stupid just to say 'No more killing! Let's all go home'? Why would it be stupid, just to pack it in, sir? Why?"
      • The biggest part of this is that neither Lieutenant George nor Captain Blackadder have a legitimate argument against this, though George does somewhat try.
    • When Lieutenant Darling realises that their guns have stopped, and everyone but Blackadder starts speculating that the war is over, thus follows one of the cruellest yet brilliant pieces of gallows humour ever put on TV: "Thank God! We lived through it! The Great War, 1914-1917..."
