Beer - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Blackadder calls for Baldrick and asks for a raw turnip, as Baldrick enters, you can see some shadow moving on the left of the screen. It's not Baldrick's shadow and there's certainly no one else in the room that could make that shadow.

Beer - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: There is a knock on the front door, and Blackadder tells Baldrick to 'get the door'. Baldrick returns with it, but the front door on the set, still in place, is still visible in the background of the shot. The fact that Baldrick knows who was at the door indicates that he's got the right one.

Beer - S2-E5

Audio problem: When Blackadder explains to Baldric about what he is not allowed to prepare for dinner Blackadder says "And that means no meat." There is a glitch before he says meat, it may be where they stopped recording before the sentence was finished.

Quotes

Percy: It will be a great day tomorrow for we nobles.
Edmund: Well, not if we lose, Percy. If we lose, I'll be chopped to pieces. My arms will end up at Essex, my torso in Norfolk, and my genitalia stuck up in a tree somewhere in Rutland.

Trivia

There are in fact two versions of the bonfire scene. Although most countries use the intended censored version (where somebody coughs right as Edmund says the F word) there are a few US editions where you can hear him swearing uninterrupted.
