    Smile Is 'mon frere' French?

    Homer: And I made reservations at the Chez Paree.

    Marge: But, Homer, it's so expensive.

    Homer: It matters not, mon frere. And after desserts, we'll adjourn to our second-floor room at the Offramp Inn.
    Hi! I learned mon frere refers to brother from Urban Dictionary.
    Urban Dictionary: mon frere

    Q1: Is it French?

    Q2: Is it often used in the conversation?

    Thanks!

    It is indeed French.

    'Mon frère' means 'my brother'.

    I don't usually hear it in conversation. Maybe it is used here because they'te talking about a French restaurant.

    Il n'y a pas de quoi, The Daffodils.

    By the way, Homer should have said "ma soeur" (my sister). Or maybe not, as he was talking to Marge .
