* The phrase on the picture translates literally (but poorly) to "I'm too sexy for my shirt." In retrospect, it is corny, [[RuleOfSexy but who cares, it's French!]] Vive le français!

* Charles V, [[UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire Holy Roman Emperor]] is said to have said, "I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men, English at court, and German to my horse." This is suspected [[BeamMeUpScotty not to be from Charles V at all]], but rather an invention of one of his biographers. The best evidence for this is the fact that Charles was born in Ghent (now in the Flanders region of Belgium), considered himself Dutch, and grew up speaking Dutch, which the Dutch themselves have called "not a language, but a disease of the throat." On the other hand, the distinction between Low (northern) German and Dutch was not as clear then as it is now, so he may have been referring to Dutch. Furthermore, it is very possible that he was actually [[StealthInsult insulting God (or at least the Church), women, and men]]: circumstances at the time would have forced him to speak the languages he mentioned to the people he mentioned, as the Spanish Church was unusually powerful, custom dictated you speak to women in the "nicest" language you knew (i.e. Italian, if you knew it, [[CaptainObvious which he did]]), and French was the language of politics and diplomacy (which at the time were the exclusive province of men and probably Charles's main conversation subject), leaving him able to speak only to his horse in his native tongue.

** In another episode, Lisa asks an Russian man for directions. He proceeds to spew angry proclamations that leave Lisa running for her life. Subtitles indicate that he was giving her the directions. "What's her problem?" Taking it an extra step, the man resumes and is beaten in a game of chess by his companion. After flipping over the chessboard, he yells "Good game, how about another?!"
