** The infamous apron camera Rene is forced to use in one episode alludes to a scene from AreYouBeingServed in which Kaye appeared. In it, he was a Scotsman who wished to buy a raincoat. While trying it on, it looks like he's practicing flashing people. When Mr. Humphries and Mr. Lucas enquire what he's doing, he reveals that he's actually an ambush photographer. He then demonstrates by using the camera concealed in his kilt's sporran.

* SpyCam: Parodied with a camera concealed in René's apron. When he wants to take a picture, a foot-square flap lifts up on the front of the apron, revealing a huge lens.

Very much a parody of ''Series/SecretArmy'', it starred Gorden Kaye as René Artois, owner of a restaurant in a small occupied French town, and a whole host of other characters (for a longer see [[Characters/AlloAllo here]]). For the most part, René -- who would introduce each episode with a FourthWall-breaking monologue to the camera in which he'd helpfully recap the plot for us and gripe about it -- just wants to keep his head down, stay out of trouble and fool around [[KavorkaMan with the improbable amount of beautiful women who are passionately attracted to him]], but unfortunately for him keeps getting dragged into numerous intrigues and shenanigans involving the French Resistance and the occupying Germans, both of whom view him as essential to their various schemes.

* Bad French accents. In fact, all of the accents were bad, including the British ones. Whilst all the dialogue was actually in English, comical 'national' accents were used to imply the language being spoken -- several times, a 'French' character overhears a conversation in e.g. a British accent, then tells another 'Frenchman' (in the show's default French-accented English) they have no idea what was said, as they don't speak English. Maria's accent in particular became so extreme that other characters would reach for towels to wipe away the spit.
