“Good luck everybody”

From the final episode of BBC’s Blackadder, “Goodbyeee”:

“Blackadder, Baldrick, George and, on the last-minute orders of General Melchett (who remains behind at his quarters), Captain Darling, are finally sent over the top. … the four are seen … charging into the fog and smoke of no man’s land, with gunfire and explosions all around, before the scene fades into footage of a sunny poppy field and the sound of birdsong.”

See “In Flanders fields the poppies blow”.
