SummaryEdit

The year is 1789 and a coach rides by. Two people, Lady Marie DeValle (Ephiny) and Francois (Salmoneus) are in it, flirting. Francois hands Marie a yellow rose, the calling card of The Chartreuse Fox. Capitan Gerrard stops the coach, looking for the Chartreuse Faux; but Marie fools him in thinking she was with her father. Francois talks about making pesants into heroes, and Marie makes a bet that he could do it. When they flirt some more, two "highway men" come by demanding money. The two men are Robert (Hercules) and Jean-Pierre (Iolaus).

Robert and Jean Pierre are tied up while Marie and Francois talk about the Ancient Greeks, and the legendary journeys of Hercules. Up pops lots and lots of clips of previous eps of Hercules. There's even a clip of Xena. Meanwhile, Captain Gerrard is still hunting down The Fox. He swears that he will kill him.

The four french people are walking around the town, looking for something to eat. They run into Croissant (Falafel), selling icky food. More flash backs of Hercules pop up, but when they are over, disaster strikes. the piggies come looking for The Chartreuse Fox. Robert and Jean Pierre beat them up with fish, but they end up hiding in barrels.

At dinner, Robert and Jean Pierre demand money before they become heroes. Marie goes to her coach to get her bag. Jean Pierre, Robert, and Francois are very pleased with themselves because they convinced her that Francois was The Chartreuse Fox. She comes back with coach. Robert will become a hero for the lady, and Francois talks about love and Serena, the last of the Golden Hinds (Hind trilogy clips pop up).

The piggies show up and Marie hides the men in a truck until it's safe. Once the guys get out of the trunk, they find their money is gone and a yellow rose on the table.

Marie thinks she has a clean get away, playing with Francois' money, but Captain Gerrard stops, her having deduced that she is the real Chartreuse Fox, and places her under arrest.

The trio is watching Marie when she's about to get sent to be beheaded at the guillotine. She preaches before she goes: "Vive la Fraunce. Vive la revolution!" Robert convinces the others that they should help her. They do. Big long French fight scene breaks out. Robert saves Marie, several times, and when he frees her, she kisses his cheeks. Marie has her dual with Captain Gerrard, leaving his undies shown with a fellow rose in his shirt.

The men decide to join Marie on her revolutionary journeys, with Francois suggesting some names for the group.
