Episode Summary

Renewing the Vows
Edith forces Rene to marry her again by saying she will marry Monsieur Alphonse. Rene wants to make sure he owns the bar (and everything in it, he notes, looking pointedly at the cuckoo clock), so he agrees to marry her, but is not surprised to discover the deputy mayor who will officiate is... Monsieur Alphonse. Michelle reports that Operation Waterloo will commence soon to get the airmen out via midget submarine. General von Klinkerhoffen is out searching for his gold, and he suspects the Colonel. Herr Flick, meanwhile, suspects Rene - so he recruits Helga to seduce Rene and find out where the missing gold is. Rene returns the paintings to the Colonel and Gruber, this time hidden inside spaghetti packets. Rene goes out on his "stag night" (bachelor party), then wakes to his wedding, only to find that Alphonse just can't seem to bring himself to say "man and wife". Luckily, Bertorelli pops in just then with his own surprise: Christmas puddings flambe.moreless

      • René: I am, of course, trying to put out of my mind the 257 exploding Christmas puddings which are still in my cellar, each one marked "Best before D-Day". Whatever that means...

      • René: What foolish notions have you put in the empty head of my wife?
        Monsieur Alphonse: She is not your wife. You are dead.
        René: Who says so?
        Monsieur Alphonse: I do. I am the undertaker, I buried you.
        René: Well, I am a very dissatisfied customer.

      • Captain Bertorelli: You are too early. I'm not ready. You are too fast-a for the pasta!

      • Michelle: London wishes to initiate Operation Waterloo.
        Edith: Waterloo?
        Michelle: Well, London said it was a word every Frenchman knows.
        René: You have to give them full marks for tact.

        The Battle of Waterloo (1815) may mark a great victory for the British, for the French it meant the end of Napoleon Bonaparte's ambitions.
