that ever lived. he saved france and started to bring democracy to all of europe. and then what happened? well, he was-- he was badly advised. he trusted a general named pichegru. and this pichegru later tried to kill napoleon. i think that it was he that persuaded napoleon that he could conquer the whole world. i wish i could have just one hour with napoleon. well, i'll see you. [chattering] [people laughing] jeannie, what-- what are you doing? look at all the lovely dresses, master. yes, yes-- say-- there's napoleon. that's napoleon bonaparte. oh, yes, of course. you said you wished to spend an hour with him, master. go talk. i didn't know i could do it now. oh, you have no medals. huh, i don't need-- need any medals. ah. oh.

10:07 am
uh, well, no one sent me. i-i-- i came with a friend. well... [clears throat] ...as a matter of fact, i was about to deliver a lecture on you this morning. a lecture? what is this? pichegru, get rid of him. at once, sire. pichegru. p-- i wouldn't do that if i were you, mr. napoleon. i-- this man is about to assassinate you. general pichegru? [chuckles] take him out of here! hold on a minute. wait, wait, wait! this man amuses me. i want to speak to him alone. nappy. ah, my dear. i don't believe we've met. uh, major, uh-- oh, n-nelson. major anthony nelson. you're the empress josephine, aren't you? oh. oh, i love that speech you made about, "let them eat cake." oh, that was very kind of you. that was marie antoinette. oh. well, i-- i'm sorry. i was never very good at history. [all chuckle] come, major. tell me some more of those funny stories. [chuckles] oh, yes. is he not wonderful? who is he? oh, major nelson is a-- an expert on military strategy.
10:08 am
oh, yes. he has some wonderful advice for napoleon bonaparte. about what? oh, it... has something to do with war. war? hm. what i really want to warn you about is russia. what about russia? well, the russian campaign's a mistake. what russian campaign? you're going to attack it. attack russia? are you mad? now, you mustn't go through with it, sir. if you attack russia, you're gonna suffer one of the worst defeats in history. napoleon, defeated? yes. i'm coming to that. you're coming to what? oh, uh-- uh, waterloo. don't fight wellington there. if you do, you'll-- you'll end up being sent to elba. never mind elba. so you think it will be a mistake for me to turn europe into an empire?
10:09 am
i must think about this. well, you'll never regret talking to me, sir. we will talk again later. join the others. there's plenty of food and drink. yes, yes. oh, i've, uh, been meaning to ask you about, uh-- these wool uniforms. tell general pichegru i want him immediately. attack russia. it would be an insanity. the man is mad. mad or a spy. but who would've sent him? russia, of course. i've been thinking of russia. the hungry iceberg waiting to destroy an unwary army. and suddenly this clumsy spy comes to me and tells me not to attack it. oh, why would russia send him here to tell you that? for only one reason, my dear pichegru. it could be that the iceberg is not as terrifying as it seems. russia must have something to fear.
10:10 am
we will attack! and it shall be my greatest victory. as you wish, sire. and what shall we do with this spy? [blows] it certainly is a pleasure meeting you, madam. of course. i've read a great deal about you, but i must say, you're much more beautiful than your paintings. am i? yes. [chuckles] master? [coughs] may i speak with you a moment, please? "master"? yes. yeah, it's a pet name. ah. would you excuse me, please? [clears throat] pardon me. jeannie, um... i'm busy. mm. so i see. ye-- what do you want? master, you wish to change the course of history. yes. then i think you have done it. what do you mean?
10:11 am
he thinks you're a spy, and he's going to kill you. no, no, no. i'm sure you misunderstood him. yes, he is. i had a long talk with him. he was very amenable to everythi-- we-- now, fellas. wait a minute. wait. napoleon. [man speaks indistinctly] you are new? oh, no, no, no. i am old. i mean, you are new at my court? oh, yes, sir. but, of course, it is a very old court. ha. you are very beautiful. oh, thank you. what is your name, my child? oh-- uh, jeannie. jeannie? uh-huh. well, jeannie. i would like to see and talk to you, and get to know you better. and perhaps, we could meet later tonight? oh. i am afraid not. uh-- a friend of mine is in terrible trouble. i could get your friend out of trouble. oh. no, thank you. but you are going to bmuch too busy worrying about russia.
10:12 am
you guys can't go around hitting an officer. what's the matter-- go in the cell. get in there. what time is this, uh-- [makes cutting sound]
10:13 am
sorry, madam. no visitors. oh. wha--? i'm sorry i am late, master, but your friend napoleon bonaparte wanted to talk with me. yes? he asked me to return later. [giggles] well, are you ready to go home now? yeah, we can't go now.
10:14 am
no, no. i mean we can't go and leave napoleon in the lurch like this. oh, but he thinks you're a spy. he will not listen to you. yeah. that's right. jeannie. hm? you can make him listen. i? yes, yes. didn't you say he wanted you to return? yes. did he seem interested in you? well... yes. but you are the only man that i-- i want you to go to his palace. oh, but why? because you've got to convince him that if he starts a war, it's gonna lead to a catastrophe. now, you think you can do that? oh. but i do not know anything about war, master. [chuckles] but you know something about men. [giggles] i do. i want you to flatter him. he has a tremendous ego. uh, you've got to make him think that all of this is his idea. jeannie... this is a tremendously important mission. oh, master. are you choosing me for this mission because i am the only one in the world who can do it? i'm choosing you for this mission
10:15 am
now, pop over to the palace and go to work on him. go to work on him. yes, master. and do not worry. i will handle it brilliantly. and remember, be subtle. he's got to think it's his idea. oh, i am probably the most subtle genie in the whole world. [both chuckling] oh. that's my girl. oh. what does "subtle" mean? go! our troops will march in through here, toward the soft underbelly of europe, and into the caucasus. no, pichegru. i have changed my mind. but why? russia sits on europe like a sleepy bear, ready to devour anything that comes near it. only a fool would attack. then what do we do about this, uh, major nelson, the spy? we have no proof that he was sent by russia. i am back. oh, what a pleasant surprise. ha-ha. you have met general pichegru? this is mademoiselle jeannie.
10:16 am
to try to kill napoleon, and he is going to have you strangled. but she's outrageous, sire. but so beautiful. oh. [giggles] pichegru, would you excuse us? you, uh-- you would not, uh, change your mind? no, call all the plans off. as you command, sire. i thought you were not coming. you said you had to help a friend. oh, but i am helping him. that is why i am here. but i don't understand. oh, major nelson sent me here to work on you. to work on me? yes. but he said that i must be subtle. what does "subtle" mean? it means honest. it means that you must tell me everything major nelson said. oh. well, he said that it was very important that i try to talk you out of attacking russia, but that you must think that it is your own idea, because you have a tremendous ego. is that subtle enough? indeed it is.
10:17 am
so he's trying to trick napoleon into not declaring war. any fool can see that the bear is sleeping. oh. waititg to fall into the hands of an invading army. nothing shall stop me. thank you, my dear. oh, you are welcome. what did i do? you have reminded me of france's glorious destiny. [rings bell] nothing shall stop france from ruling the world. oh. arrest this woman. oh, am i going to the bastille? i'm afraid so. oh, thank you. mwah. [laughs] come along. ["la marseillaise" playing] [keys jingling]
10:18 am
thank heavens you're back, jeannie. i knew you could do it. [door locks] i said to myself-- what went wrong? nothing, master. i was very subtle. i told him everything. you-- you told him everything? it is all fixed. it's all fixed. napoleon has decided not to attack russia. ha. good girl. he is going to attack a big bear instead. [chuckles] oh. oh. you're kidding. may we go home now, master? no. what am i gonna do? [snaps] wait a minute, wait a minute. i got one last chance. i've got to get to josephine. oh, believe me, master, she's much too old for you. she's the only one napoleon will listen to. now, if i can just talk to her, yeah, i'm sure she'll help. oh, master, would it not be much simpler if we just went home? no, we can't leave him like this. can you get josephine here? well, if that is what you wish. that is what i wish. [sighs] thank you.
10:19 am
oh. you have five minutes. i received a message that you wish to see me about my husband. the messenger said it was life and death. yes. he's absolutely right. uh-- your husband is about to make a terrible mistake. now, you've got to stop him from attacking russia. oh, i do not mix in his majesty's military affairs. well, if you don't use your influence, he's gonna wind up on elba. elba? that's the island where they're gonna exile him. you are joking. of course, you won't be there. he'll be married to louise, but still i-- louise? he's going to escape from elba, raise an army, and fight wellington at waterloo. and believe me, he's going to lose. who is this "louise"? the important thing is you've got to convince napoleon not to go into battle. how long has he known her? who? louise! gosh, i don't know. will you talk to napoleon? no. n-- no? but you're the only chance i have--
10:20 am
i love him more than life itself. but how do i know that anything you're saying is true. can you prove that they are going to exile him to elba? well, no, i can't prove it. i-- uh, perhaps if you can tell me who this louise is, i could find out whether you are lying, or whether you really know what's going to happen. you-- you mean, if i could show her to you, you'd believe me? perhaps. her name is marie louise, and she's the daughter of the empress of austria. he has never mentioned her to me. do you think you can find her? [keys jingling] don't worry. i'll find her. yeah. thank you very much. uh-- you don't have a moment to lose. have you finished, your majesty? yes. for now. master. oh. how did it go? oh, just fine. i think i finally found a way to persuade josephine that i'm telling the truth. we can help napoleon now.
10:21 am
that i should have let you go to your lecture this morning. yeah. [keys jingling] ah. did you find her? oh, mais oui, monsieur. but first, i want to be very sure of what you have told me. this marie louise of austria and my husband are in love, and are going to be married? oh, yes. oh, yes. they're madly in love. [chuckles] bring her in. [baby giggles] ah. ah- ha-ha-ha-ha. hi there, huh? [makes baby noises] who-- who's this? she-- this is the princess marie louise of austria. take her away. happy guillotine, monsieur. hey. wait. uh, wait a minute-- uh-- i-i-i made a mistake. i-i got the dates mixed up. if you just wait 18 years, i assure you, they're gonna be married. happily. ah! master. [sighs] when i was at the palace,
10:22 am
oh, i would love to have a new dress. is that all you think of, is dresses? you never take me to paris, master. and while we are here, let me get one new dress. yeah, would you forget the dresses-- i will be back in a few minutes. yeah, but-- jeannie, you can't leave me now. they're gonna come for me any minute. i'm not kidding. they're gonna cut my head off. now, come on back.
