First Aired: Oct. 14, 1989 on BBC One
Season 6 » Episode #07 - The Marriage of Ernest & Fanny Leclerc
Summary: Von Klinkerhoffen has returned from Big Bertha a little edgy. He learns about the airmen getting away and concocts a mad plan to blow up the town if the airmen are not returned. Fortunately, Herr Flick and Von Smallhausen learn of this plan as Von Smallhausen enters the chateau (disguised as a boy scout) to steal the map of where the mines are located (one of which is located right under the cafe). Meanwhile, Fanny's & Leclerc's wedding day is at hand, as Michelle devises another plan to get the airmen home, using a marquee to be set up in the backyard of the cafe. A barrage balloon will be brought in, as well as tanks of helium, which are disguised as Algerian vegetable marrows. Fanny is too weak to walk to the church, so her whole bed is pulled down the aisle by Mimi, Yvette, Edith, and the airmen (disguised as bridesmaids). However, the couple soon fall asleep and it's up to Rene and Edith to complete the ceremony for them.
