The episode of "Blackadder II" in which Edmund finds it necessary to
put on a small dinner party to impress his Puritan aunt and uncle,
whose fortune he hopes to inherit, in one room of his house, while
simultaneously holding a drinking orgy to protect his [alleged]
reputation as a roisterer, in another. Highlights include a turnip
