Going to Paris in October. What should I know?

I'm spending 4 days in Paris. I've never been to France, and I speak no French. This was a spur of the moment plane ticket purchase. But I don't want to be an unnecessarily annoying tourist.

Should I try learning to speak some French? Will anyone understand me if I speak English? How might I unwittingly offend someone? Any other tips for a clueless American in France? (Besides, you know, trying to become less clueless between now and October.)
Finally if anyone has any fun Paris suggestions re: where to stay, good eats, etc. Those would be very welcome too!
