Trivia
'listen very carefully, I shall say this only once' was never meant to be a catchphrase, it was said once and it got a laugh, so the character of Michelle said it in every episode after. Many famous catchphrase were created by accident.

Writer David Croft says that the inspiration for Officer Crabtree, the policeman (played by Arthur Bostrom) who speaks spectacularly bad French, came from Edward Heath, former British Prime Minister, who spoke French with a broad English accent. In real life, Arthur Bostrom speaks French fluently.

Gorden Kaye was injured in an accident during the British storm of January 25th and 26th 1990, when a plank of wood flew through the windscreen of his car, leaving Gorden Kaye with a scare on his head, which Kaye claimed in a interview that he had no recollection of any details of the accident. Although the scar was noticeable on his head in Series 7 and it was not written in the show to explain why Rene had a scar on his head.

Goofs
Madame Fanny is occasionally seen knitting. However, the character knits British style. Any French woman of the time would knit Continental style instead.

At the end of each episode there is a list of "Cast in order of appearance", but on several occasions, the order of the list does not reflect the actual order in which the actors appear in the episode. In season 5, there are even some episodes where actors are credited in the list without appearing in the episode.

Faq
Q
What did everyone see in René Artois?
A
Difficult to answer, but whatever it seemed to effect Yvette, Mimi, Marie, Denise Laroque, Louise, and even Gruber. Michelle of the Resistance only pretended to have the hots for him. The writers might have watched too many French farces....
Q
How much violence, profanity, nudity etc., does this series have?
A
You can read here.
Q
What exactly did the flying helmet and wet celery involve?
A
It seems that the recipient wears the flying helmet, but it's anyone's guess where the celery comes in. There's an egg-whisk involved somewhere...
