  • Episode Description
  • Abandoning Alphonse's truck idea, Michelle discovers an old charter which states that a gypsy fair is always held on the solstice. One of the gypsy tents could be placed over the grate, and they could finally get the airmen out. Flick has Elsa place the forgery in Von Strohm's office. Rene and Edith visit the gypsies, who read their palms. The gypsy leader claims that Edith was really Romanna, the Gypsy Princess. However, he quickly changes his mind when he hears her sing. The General discovers the painting and has Von Strohm, Gruber, Bertorelli and Bigstern arrested. The gypsies cancel because of a bad omen, so the cafe staff must take their places. Von Klinkerhoffen discovers the painting is another forgery, and releases his officers just in time for the start of the carnival. Rene is a fortune-teller in the tent covering the grate. The Airmen are given a chisel to try and break the hinges from the inside. Unfortunately, Gruber comes to communicate with Rene's dead twin brother. As the seance commences, the Airmen break out and push up the rug covering the grate, frightening Gruber who runs away. The airmen are followed by THREE MORE airmen who have been lost in the sewer for weeks. However, they take one look at Edith and head straight down into the sewer again while our airmen stay up top.moreless

    • René: I am not getting involved. Michelle: If you do not, René, some of my more trigger happy girls might think you are a coward and come here to shoot the place up. Edith: But surely you would stop them, Michelle. Michelle: I would give them the bullets.

    • Gypsy leader: Let me see your lifeline. Oh, it is very long. See, here it becomes a double line. It even goes up your sleeve. René: What does that mean? Gypsy leader: You will die in a railway tunnel.
