126. My father, Daddy Ploppy, was known as "Ploppy, the Slopper"! It was from him that I inherited my
fascinating skin diseases.

Blackadder: Yes, you are to be... you are to be congratulated, my friend. We live in an age where illness and deformity are commonplace, and yet, Ploppy, you are, without a doubt, the most repulsive individual I've ever met. I would shake your hand, but I fear it would come off.

Mr. Ploppy: There's no many bosses would be that considerate, sir.

... I could go on and on....

Now, I am addicted to "Jeeves & Wooster." :D
