Could someone, please say if the word "dashily" exists? I couldn't find one in any vocabularies. A few hours ago I saw this web clip (The Vampire Diaries), and beginning from 00:40 Damon says:

And listen, despite the fact that my long list of dashily deeds involves killing you, I'm glad you're alive.

Maybe, I can't hear the word correctly, and there must be another one. Please, help me understand what it is and what it means. I'd really appreciate any help. :)



ADJECTIVE dated or humorous

Wicked and cruel:

pirates and their dastardly deeds

    @Ksiencha - Don't worry about it. The word was not clearly pronounced in that clip. I think that only people who knew the word and the contexts in which it is often used would have recognised it. – tunny Nov 12 '14 at 10:16

    As a child of the ’80s and ’90s, I cannot see or hear this word without fond memories of Dick Dastardly popping into my mind. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Nov 12 '14 at 11:42
  • @JanusBahsJacquet: exactly the same here. :) – A E Nov 12 '14 at 11:44
