Episode Summary

EDIT
Enigma
AIRED:
Although General von Klinkerhoffen recovered his gold from the exploded tank, he did not recover the four bars Rene had stolen earlier - and the Germans are out searching for them. Rene takes the opportunity to hide the gold by melting it down and forming it into a new weight for the cuckoo clock. Yvette and Edith try to wheedle the hiding place of the gold out of Rene, but he is firm. Especially for Yvette. The Germans enlist Rene to help them recover the statue in which they had hidden the cuckoo clock and the paintings, promising not inverstigate the whereabouts of the gold too closely if Rene helps recover the contents of the statue. To do so, they arrange for the Excelsior Quartet, a group of musicians scheduled to play at the chateau, to be detained while Rene and the cafe staff replace them and use the opportunity to retrieve the statue's contents.

Von Smallhausen attempts to move up a grade in the Gestapo, since he is only a provisional member, but when he is tested by Herr Flick, he fails the physical. Herr Flick suspects that something is up at the dinner party at the chateau, so he and Von Smallhausen go undercover as serving maids. Meanwhile, British intelligence reports that the Germans' new coding machine, Enigma, must be stolen. Michelle plans for Mimi to hide in the case of the double bass at the performance, then sneak out and get the Enigma machine. Meanwhile, Yvette and Alphonse hide in the piano to get the paintings and clock from the statue.

As Mimi, trapped inside the case of the bass, grabs the Enigma - and Yvette and Alphonse move the piano near the statue to grab the paintings, Crabtree sings!moreless
