05/23/2004: Thought for the Day:
Nurse Mary: Tell me, Edmund: Do you have someone special in your life?
Captain Edmund Blackadder: Well, yes, as a matter of fact, I do.
Nurse Mary: Who?
Captain Edmund Blackadder: Me.
Nurse Mary: No, I mean someone you love, cherish and want to keep safe from all the horror and the hurt.
Captain Edmund Blackadder: Erm... Still me, really.
Nurse Mary: No, but, back home, in England, there must be someone waiting -- some sweetheart.
Captain Edmund Blackadder: Oh, a girl... Nah. I've always been a soldier -- married to the army. The book of King's Regulations is my mistress, possibly with a Harrod's lingerie catalogue discreetly tucked between the pages.
Nurse Mary: And no casual girlfriends...?
Captain Edmund Blackadder: Skirt? Hah! If only... When I joined up, we were still fighting colonial wars. If you saw someone in a skirt, you shot him and nicked his country.
