  • While France awaits Napoleon's triumphant return from Austria, Brain develops a recipe for exploding crepe-suzettes in an effort to conquer France. He uses the recipe in a cooking class and when the crepes explode, he is arrested. When he is taken to prison, however, his luck begins to change when people mistake him for Napoleon Bonaparte.

    • (Pinky realizes something) Pinky: What happens when the real Napoleon shows up, Emperor Brain? Brain: A bit louder, Pinky. There's a truffle hunter outside Limoges who didn't quite hear you. Pinky: You mean Armand? Brain: Fear not, Pinky. This is not a detail I missed. (he pulls out a proclamation and unfurls it) Brain: This is a list of imperial decrees that I presented this morning. Buried among them is a decree banishing anyone over the height of eight inches from entering the country. By the time Napoleon arrives at the border, he won't be able to get in. Banished! Pinky: Genius, Emperor Brain! (he slaps Brain on the back and knocks him over) Brain: There are times, Pinky, that I question our friendship.

    • Pinky: Brain, where are you? Brain: I'm inside the crape suzzete. Pinky: Egad, Brain. Suit yourself Brain: The nutmeg, Pinky. Pinky: Right. (he grabs the nutmeg and sprinkles it on the crape) Brain: Don't add the nutmeg. Pinky: Don't? (the lab explodes)
