Storyline

Rene's funeral is to be arranged by the village undertaker Monsieur Alphonse. Flick, along with his girlfriend, Private Helga, will be watching on the off-chance that the mourners will include other Resistance members who can then be arrested,but the plan is leaked so that Monsieur LeClerc will pose as the priest and no Resistance members will attend. Rene himself is passed off as his twin brother, also called Rene, come to pay his respects. In the absence of a body, Michelle hides some anti-tank missiles that she has been given in the coffin but of course it falls off the hearse, causing an explosion. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Again Leclerc, dressed as a priest, starts singing "A Monk of Great Renown". This bawdy song describes a monk who seduces women, his sexual prowess kills them but subsequent necrophilia brings them back to life. From there it gets really dirty. See more »

Goofs

If you wish to keep your identity and allegiance a secret, "Nighthawk" (René) may be a good call sign/cover name for radio transmissions, but "London" (British Intelligence) not so much. See more »

Quotes

René: Yes, we are both from Nancy. We're just a couple of Nancy boys.

Swiftly and with Style

Step forward Monsieur Alfonse, who's set to bury Rene, only Rene isn't dead, his cover story that he is his own twin brother. Herr Flick and Helga attend the funeral hoping to discover members of The Resistance among the peasants.

It's a particularly funny episode, it's getting more and more bonkers with each episode. Kenneth Connor was one of my favourite characters, so it's wonderful to see him appear as the undertaker.

It's loading with funny scenes, the exploding coffin for one, but the subsequent scenes where mud drips on the hiding pair. The look of sheer delight on Hartman's face is evident, Gibson manages to remain stern faced throughout.

A classic. 9/10
