Is it just me or did Michelle and Crabtree overuse the word "chaps" when speaking to the airmen? It kinda got on my nerves.

Personally, I rather liked it -- it was sort of a mini-catchphrase to be used when they were "speaking English". A familiar signpost that reminds you what's going on, whiel also bringing a smile to your (well, my, then) face.

Not unlike "Good Moaning", it its own way.

I can kinda understand Michelle using it since she's French, but Crabtree didn't need to.

Crabtree's I Say Chaps was a little over used but ah well, Michelle used it to distinguish that she was speaking English not French
