Literal meaning of famous French expressions -easy

Trivia Quiz Because of the 300 year-old French occupation in England, the English language has borrowed thousands of French words and expressions. Some of this vocabulary has been so completely absorbed by English that speakers might not realize its origins.

It is estimated that English speakers who have never studied French already know 15,000 French words. But do you know the literal meaning of the following expressions?

Amusez-vous bien!

Thank you for fun quiz however "faire sa toilette" in French means to wash up. The toilet was called "latrine" until modern (19th century) plumbing put the "toilette" (sink where you wash) and the "latrine" in the same room. I'd say "bathing water", not toilet water for "eau de toilette" knowing that at Versailles among nobles, it often replaced washing altogether.
