Blackadder:
[seeing Percy's abnormally wide new neckruff] You look like a bird who's swallowed a plate.

Percy:
It's the latest fashion, actually. And as a matter of fact, it makes me look rather sexy!

Blackadder:
To another plate-swallowing bird, perhaps. If it was blind and hadn't had it in months.

Percy:
I think you may be wrong!

Blackadder:
You're a sad, laughable figure, aren't you, Percy? Baldrick, what do you think of Percy's new ruff?

Baldrick:
Four!

Blackadder:
What?

Baldrick:
Some beans and some beans is four!

Blackadder:
No, now we've moved on - from advanced mathematics to elementary dress making. What do you think of Percy's new ruff?

Baldrick:
I think he looks like a bird who's swallowed a plate, my Lord.

Blackadder:
No, that's what I think. What do you think? Try to have a thought of your own; thinking is so important. What do you think?

Baldrick:
I think thinking is so important, my Lord.
