Yeah, it is a famous episode. Taking the mickey out of a certain British attitude some Brits used to have towards Germans. Not for me to say though, only lived in the UK for seventeen years.

German - "would you stop talking about the war"
Fawlty - "Me, you started it"
German - "We did not start it"
Fawlty - "yes you did, you invaded Poland"

Classic, absolute classic.

My wife and I use part of that line on each other all the time.
"You started it"
"No, I didn't!"
"Yes, you did, you invaded Poland!"

Absolutely brilliant series!

On a really depressing note, a remake is being planned with Kirstie Alley in the Basil Fawlty role. I am NOT making this up!

There has already been an Americanized version of Fawlty Towers starring John Larroquette, called Payne. (I thought it was awful even though I am a Larroquette fan.) They made nine episodes before performing a mercy killing... and pulled the plug.

Oops, once again I screwed up. Kirstie Alley is not doing a remake of "Fawlty Towers", ; she is planning/doing a remake of another classic Britcom, "The Vicar of Dibley". I'm sure it will be a disaster.

If it weren't for facts, I'd be brilliant!
