Episode Summary

EDIT
The Exploding Bedpan
AIRED:
After launching the Long-Distance Duck, Edith is now in charge of feeding the hatchlings. Meanwhile, Yvette, Mimi, Denise and Louise all pledge their undying love to René. Yvette has gotten hold of disguises for the hiding Communists, but Denise rejects the ragged serving girl outfits, insisting that Edith must die, and René should get them waitress outfits. Monsieur Alphonse is being interrogated by the Gestapo after being arrested for passing forged notes. Von Strohm and Gruber fear that he may reveal the whereabouts and plots of the paintings, so they come up with a plan to kill him by having René feed him a pastry with a suicide pill. Of course the plan backfires and instead Fanny nearly eats the pill. Meanwhile, Helga tells to Alphonse where she is hiding her share of the loot and how she has a hacksaw blade hidden on her body to help him escape - but as she removes her uniform to show him, Alphonse suffers a heart attack from the sight and Herr Flick carts him off to the hospital. Numerous of crazy schemes occur in the aftermath: Michelle plans to have an Alphonse dummy and wheel in a gurney on which she'll sneak Alphonse back out. Helga comes up with a plan to stop Alphonse from talking by killing him with an exploding bedpan with a microphone inside and Von Strohm and Gruber masquerading as nurses. Michelle's plan ends up with René faking food poisoning and the whole cafe gang in disguise as a hospital team. But no end to the problems: they can't get Alphonse unhooked from the cardiogram machine... They take the whole bed and the cardiogram with them and leave the dummy behind. Gruber and Von Strohm blow up the dummy and think they've killed Alphonse. René ends up in the maternity ward by mistake but he manages to escape surgery at the last minute. The others get Alphonse with them in an ambulance but they've forgotten about René, who is left alone outside the hospital as they drive off.moreless
