Enter! Dr. Johnson, Your Highness. Ah, Dr. Johnson! Damn cold day! Indeed it is, sir -- but a very fine one, for I celebrated last night the encyclopaedic implementation of my pre-meditated orchestration of demotic Anglo-Saxon. Nope -- didn't catch any of that. Well, I simply observed, sir, that I'm felicitous, since, during the course of the penultimate solar sojourn, I terminated my uninterrupted categorisation of the vocabulary of our post-Norman tongue. Well, I don't know what you're talking about, but it sounds damn saucy, you lucky thing! I know some fairly liberal-minded girls, but I've never penultimated any of them in a solar sojourn, or, for that matter, been given any Norman tongue! I believe, sir, that the Doctor is trying to tell you that he is happy because he has finished his book. It has, apparently, taken him ten years. Yes, well, I'm a slow reader myself... Here it is, sir: the very cornerstone of English scholarship. This book, sir, contains every word in our beloved language. Every single one, sir? Every single word, sir! Oh, well, in that case, sir, I hope you will not object if I also offer the Doctor my most enthusiastic contrafribbularities. What? `Contrafribbularites', sir? It is a common word down our way. Damn! Oh, I'm sorry, sir. I'm anus-peptic, phrasmotic, even compunctious to have caused you such pericombobulation. What? What? WHAT? What are you on about, Blackadder? This is all beginning to sound a bit like dago talk to me. I'm sorry, sir. I merely wished to congratulate the Doctor on not having left out a single word. Shall I fetch the tea, Your Highness? Yes, yes -- and get that damned fire up here, will you? Certainly, sir. I shall return interphrastically. So, Dr. Johnson. Sit ye down. Now, this book of yours...tell me, what's it all about? It is a book about the English language, sir. - I see. And the hero's name is what? There is no hero, sir. No hero? Well, lucky I reminded you. Better put one in pronto! Ermm...call him `George'. `George' is a good name for a hero. Er, now, what about heroines? There is no heroine, sir...unless it is our Mother Tongue. Ah, the mother's the heroine. Nice twist. How far have we got, then? Old Mother Tongue is in love with George the Hero. Now what about murders? Mother Tongue doesn't get murdered, does she? No she doesn't. No-one gets murdered, or married, or in a tricky situation over a pound note! Well, now, look, Dr. Johnson, I may be as thick as a whale omelette, but even I know a book's got to have a plot. Not this one, sir. It is a book that tells you what English words mean. I *know* what English words mean! I *speak* English! You must be a bit of a thicko. Perhaps you would rather not be patron of my book if you can see no value in it whatsoever, sir! Well, perhaps so, sir! As it sounds to me as if my being patron of this complete cowpat of a book would set the seal once and for all on my reputation as an utter turnip-head! Well! It is a reputation well deserved, sir! Farewell! Leaving already, Doctor? Not staying for your pendigestatery interludicule? No, sir! Show me out! Certainly, sir -- anything I can do to facilitate your velocitous extramuralisation.
