  • - 1) this is wrong. You should say "omelette au fromage" which means "an omelette with cheese".

    - 2) this has apparently no figurative meaning.

    The only quote/proverb that could have an actual and a figurative meaning would be "On ne fait pas d'omelette sans casser d'oeufs" meaning "you can't achieve something without taking risks."

  • Steve Martin is a very smart guy who got famous decades ago playing a very dumb guy. In his routine about French he says, "they have a different word for EVERYTHING!" And goes on to tell us that the only thing he can order is "omelette du fromage." For the benefit of the irony-impaired: the point is that he's even wrong about that.

  • I don't see any figurative meaning to something meaning cheese omelette. I'm French and it only means this to me.

    AC: on ne peut pas faire d'omelette sans casser des oeufs is not cheese omelette at all!!!!

    EDIT: Maria, somebody who calls you omelette du fromage does not speak French! In French, we say omelette au fromage and we don"t call people this way. It must be something else

  • 1. Omelette du fromage

    The amazing phrase from Dexter's laboratory in the episode "The Big Cheese", when he listens to a French recording overnight to learn said language. This consequentially gets stuck on repeat, on this phrase. The next day all he can say is "omelette du fromage", actually working to his advantage in everything he does (except at the end, when his lab blows up).

    Although meant to depict "cheese omelette", this phrase is grammatically incorrect. You should say "omelette au fromage", which means "an omelette with cheese".

    Despite this, people still say the phrase "for the lols."

    Mike: I only know one french word. Actually a phrase: Omelette du fromage.

    Sarah: Dexter's lab?

    Mike: Dexter's lab!

    Sarah: Hahahaha!!

    Mike: Roflcopter Lolmobile!

    Sarah: 'o.O?

    Mike: Jk.

    Sarah: -.-

    It it also an homage to a Steve Martin skit from years past.

  • I cannot know this for sure, but I think its a inside reference among the writers to a old steve martin standup joke. Steve martin is talking about going to france, and when he is ordering food, he only says the phrase "omelette au fromage". Check out Steve's routine and you can see the reference.
