    [LEAD TENOR STORMTROOPER]
    It's
    Springtime for Hitler and Germany
    Deutschland is.....






    The music fades away as the camera pans south, where French and Austrian border guards stand opposite each other, staring each other down. The Austrian troops have several cuts and bruises from earlier, failed assaults on the French line. In the distant backdrop, a French banner can be seen waving.

    [AUSTRIAN GENERAL]
    The line'll advance
    Next season
    Bet your last korona
    That next season
    We'll succeed!

    [AUSTRIAN SOLDIERS]
    Just gearin' up for
    Next season
    Just give us one breakthrough
    No other reason
    No other need!

    [FRENCH SOLDIERS]
    When righteous war drags
    And lags,
    In trenches,
    We just hold on our best.
    The rest
    Soars with our flag

    [The French line breaks; the Austrians begin marching, their steps on beat with the music]

    [AUSTRIAN SOLDIERS]
    The front'll advance!

    [FRENCH SOLDIERS]
    Next season!
    We've gotta hang on

    [AUSTRIAN SOLDIERS]
    No reason!
    Just fall down!

    [Suddenly, the French stop retreating and the Austrians stop advancing simultaneously. The French flag in the distant background has been gradually descending, and now a new flag has risen in its place.]



    [AUSTRIAN SOLDIERS]
    Next season! Next season!
    We'll face ya next season!
    You've only
    Prolongued
    Your tag!

    [French step forward to their original line. The Austrian soldiers, one by one, grab unto a strategic redeployment train heading east]

    Next season! Next season!
    We'll break ya next season!
    You've only
    Prolongued
    Your tag!



    [The train continues to the east, heading toward Ottoman territory]

    [PILOT]
    General de Gaulle, we shall be arriving in London shortly.



    [CHARLES]
    Beut euf ceurse. Freum theure, Uh sheull reully theu Freu Freunch peuple teu theu ceuse euf leubeurteu. Leubeurteu, Euqueuleuteu, Freuteurneuteu!

    [The pilot starts to turn in confusion, but he shakes his head and continues flying. After a moment, something outside the plane's window catches Charles' attention.]

    [CHARLES]
    Meuseur Peuleut! Meuseur Peuleut! Theure iz eu meun eun theu pleun!

    [PILOT]
    What?

    [CHARLES]
    Uh MEUN, yeu beuffoon! Uh MEUN eun theu PLEUN! Heu eus reught theure! REUGHT THEURE! EURE YEU BLEUND?!!

    [PILOT]
    Stop yelling! I can't understand you!

    [CHARLES]
    LEEUUUK! [points]

    [PILOT]
    What? Oh! There's a MAN on the plane.

    BOMMMMMM.... BOM-BOM-BOM-BOMMMMM!


    [The plane begins falling apart from the outside, crashing to the ground. Before it crashes, a mysterious figure paradrops to safety.]


    NOTE: Giraud is the only option left for Free France's leadership.

    BOM-BOM-BOM-BOMMMMMM.... BOM-BOM-BOM-BOM-BOMMMMM!
