General Von Klinkerhoffen threatens to blow up Nouvion if the airmen aren't handed over. Fanny and Monsieur Le Clerc are getting married. Michelle reveals a new plan to send the airmen back to England. A barrage balloon and tanks of helium will be hidden in the marquee set up behind the cafe for the wedding.
René Mimi and the two British airmen are still handcuffed together. They make their way to the police station hoping that Officer Crabtree can free them. The Germans want to sell the painting of the 'Fallen Madonna'. They order René to find them a fence. A meeting is held with Monsieur Alphonse posing as the fence and everyone else wearing paper bags on their heads. The painting is exchanged for the gold weight from the cuckoo clock. Later the Germans decide that they'd rather have cash so René arranges for the gold to be exchanged for forged currency. The swap is made in the church in the confessional booth. There's a cockup and the Germans inadvertantly pass the gold on to the priest.
Flick and Von Smallhausen are interrogated by the general for impersonating army officers but released on the orders of Himmler - thanks to Helga.
