Episode Summary

EDIT
Saville Row To The Rescue
AIRED:
The Colonel & the Captain and Herr Flick are all disguised as onion sellers while the German uniforms are being remade by the Jewish tailors of London. Michelle delivers a bottle of nitro-glycerin disguised as a bottle of Bols Gin to hide in the Cafe until they come to fetch it that night to blow up a German railway. But thinking it's gin, Edith begins spreading the nitro around - to her mother and the hens in the back. Although they attempt to get their spare uniforms, the Colonel and the Captain find that they have been sent to Paris for cleaning and are not available. Which makes them desperate, as they have found out that General Von Klinkerhoffen, the famously hard-nosed German General, is coming to visit the next morning.
The German officers insist on joining Rene and company when they go out on their expedition that night - the Resistance is heading out to blow up the railway with the gin, but first they intend to rendezvous with a plane from England, which is reportedly bringing the new German uniforms, and will take back the painting (to be forged) and the two airmen (effecting their escape). Luckily, the Germans being along is a help when they need to get past an unexpected sentry; unluckily, the plane that arrives is carrying not the uniforms, but a tailor to do a fitting - and is only a two-seater, so it can't take the airmen back with it...moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Discussing the german uniforms being made by a tailor after being thrown in a fire by two british airmen trying to escape
      Colonel Von Strom: Rene, when are we getting our new uniforms
      Rene: they are being made by the finest tailors in all of London
      Helga: London?
      Colonel Von Strom: Helga the less you know the better
      Rene: Unfortunately the tailor had to go to a Barmitzvah
      Helga: A Jewish tailor?
      she smiles and stuffs some cheese in her ears

    • (Edith and Fanny are singing together)
      Officer Fairfax: My God Carstairs! It is a terrible war!

    • (Fairfax and Carstars are watching Madame Fanny drinking nitroglycerin and singing)
      Officer Fairfax: I say Carstairs, the old girl is a bit of a go, isn't she?
      Officer Carstairs: Let's hope they don't give her anything else. Between the onion soup and that drink she's even more dangerous than the flack over Berlin!

    • (René, Maria and Yvette witnessed chickens exploding; only the rooster stayed alive)
      René: You are looking at a walking legend.

    • Leclerc: That drink---it made your momma very frisky.

      Leclerc: She got out of bed, went to pick up her slippers, and blew the door off the wardrobe.

      Edith: I have given some to my mother, and the chickens!
      René: Oh no! This is disaster! Those are the only chickens we have!

    • Col. Von Strohm: This is disaster. Can you imagine the stink in Berlin---Von Klinkerhoffen met by two onion sellers.
      Cap. Hans Geering: Hitler will do his nut!

    • René: Meet me in the coal cellar.
      Maria: But I get so dirty in there.
      René: Yes, I know!

    • (arguing about seniority)
      Capt. Hans: In these clothes we are equal!
      Col. Strohm: On the contrary! My onions are bigger than your onions, and I have two rows!
