next morning -in reception - replacing the moose - clear the building - come to the fire drill - the phone rings - can not leave him in peace - need the key - opens the safe and the burglar alarm goes off - guests are going out - it was not the fire bell - guests start to leave - Manuel starts the chips - only practice so the guests know what it is like when he does ring the fire bell - switching it off - The Major believes the there are burglars - Basil can not cope - Manuel sets the chip pan alight - and then sets fire to his gloves and spreads the fire around the kitchen - by accident - rushes out - thrown into the kitchen by Basil - fuego, fuego, fuego - shut up - shouting - pushed back in the kitchen - Manuel is still howling - de nada, de nada - switching off the bell - terrific - the first time they have ever had a fire in the hotel and he has lost the key - smash the glass with his fist and injures himself - throws the typewriter at the glass - it misses - Basil passes out on the floor by hitting his head on Manuel s frying-pan
         
white turbanlike bandage - has had a concussion - he must rest - in the hospital again- there is not much damage - he feels needed - protests to stay at the hospital - right as rain - Polly meanwhile is on the phone and calls the doctor while Basil welcomes the Germans - makes fun of the Germans - hat the Germans - places a finger under his nose preparatory to doing his Hitler impression - ladies begin to sob - the men are angry - the Germans invaded Poland - the audience is stunned - both German women are in tears and both men on their feet - he performes his exagerated goose-step out into the lobby - marches back into the dining room - not mention the war - the doctor comes in with a hypodermic needle ready - come with me - he escapes - he is knocked cold by the moose
