Full Plot

The balloon crashes and the airmen end up back at the cafe,disguised by moose heads. General Von Klinkerhoffen assumes control of the whole area, thereby making many enemies. The Resistance hate him for obvious reasons but Von Strohm,Geering and Flick also feel undermined by his presence. Therefore,at a party he is organizing to mark the Kaiser's birthday,plans are made to kill him,involving poison - in the pill by the till in the jug with the drug - and dynamite hidden in a birthday cake - the candle with the handle in the gateau from the chateau. The poison actually turns out to be aspirin and the candle seems likely to explode and kill everybody so Rene tips a bucket of sand over it,explaining to Von Klinkerhoffen that it was done as a respectful gesture to mark the Kaiser's birthday. don @ minifie-1 Plot not found

Capt. Hans Geering: René, that is the jug with the drug. René: After all that has happened, I could use a little aspirin. [Rene has covered the gâteau for the Kaiser's birthday with sand] Gen. Von Klinkerhoffen: You fool, what do you think you are doing? René: I did this in memory of the day that the Kaiser was buried. Capt. Hans Geering: Do you not see? That if you kill him with the pill from the till by making with it the drug in the jug, you need not light the candle with the handle on the gâteau from the château. René: Simple plots are always the best. [Michelle regards the snooker table in the back room of the café] Michelle Dubois: What is the biggest break you've had on this table? René: Just now, when my wife swallowed that story about the light bulb. [Colonel von Strohm has complimented Madame Edith] René: The Colonel is drunk early this evening. [Von Klinkerhoffen has ordered the Colonel to woo Madame Edith] Col. Von Strom: How can I put this? I don't fancy her. Gen. Von Klinkerhoffen: Colonel, how can *I* put it? How do you fancy the Russian Front? Capt. Hans Geering: She's a good cook. Col. Von Strom: [starting to smile] Oh, yes. I'd forgotten that. [Edith has suggested that Rene strap dynamite to himself in order to blow up the General] Edith: You will be buried as a great hero of France. René: First you will have to scrape me off the wall. Col. Von Strom: [discussing the General] So far, he has only discovered the tip of the iceberg. Capt. Hans Geering: You haven't stolen a whole iceberg, have you? [Colonel von Strohm reveals that he has discovered a plot by the Resistance] René: Perhaps they were just trying to kill General von Klinkerhoffen Capt. Hans Geering: We're all trying to kill General von Klinkerhoffen. [the airmen's call to England has been cut off] Flying Officer Carstairs: You never asked who won the Boat Race! Flying Officer Fairfax: Damm! I knew we called about something!
