    • Schultz: Colonel Hogan, you shouldn't wipe your hand on the Kommandant. Hogan: Well you won't get us a roller towel!

    • Klink: If the prisoners ask any questions about these explosions, you know nothing. You are ignorant. Schultz: Oh, I can handle that. Klink: I know.

    • Klink: I will throw them in the cooler for life. Even after the war. Even if we lose!

    • Hogan: (to Klink) Six went to Kleifeld. Six. You got one. Six to one. And yours with a busted flipper, a factory second.

    • Hogan: (after Lebeau's outburst) Lebeau is a bit emotional.

    Trivia (7)

    • Goof: This is a clothing continuity mistake. In the previous wine cellar scene, the sneakers worn by Hogan and Carter have visibly clean and bright White sides and toe cap (even when close to the camera). In this scene, the same sneakers are now Black on the rubber sides and toe cap, instead of White. Even the eyelets are darker in color than in the first scene showing Hogan and Carter leaving the truck.

    • This episode is the first time Hogan kisses a woman outside of camp. As she enters the wine cellar looking for General Schmidt, Hogan grabs her, turns her towards the wall, and kisses her. Afterwards while staying in the shadows, he pushes her around the door and tells her auf wiedersehen. She leaves smiling thinking the General kissed her in a very shy and romantic manner.

    • Goof: This is a clothing continuity mistake. As Hogan and Carter leave the truck and cross to the cellar door entrance, they are wearing Black sneakers with Black grease. The grease covers the majority of the White sides and White toe cap for both individuals. In the next scene, as they enter the wine cellar, the Black grease is missing from their sneakers. The White rubber sides and toe cap are clearly and brightly visible. This continues down the stairs and across the room, until there is a camera angle change.

    • During WWII the U.S. Army issued Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars sneakers, as well as Pro-Keds. The episode stays true to history, as Hogan and Carter are wearing Black Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars during the mission outside of camp.

    • During the mission Hogan and Carter wear Black clothing. Black toboggan cap, Black t-shirt, Black pants, Black leather belt, Black socks, and Black sneakers. They also use Black grease on their face and hands. The sneakers, though, have some White on them and the eyelets are also visible. The rubber sides and toes are White, but have Black grease on them. The grease covers only part of the rubber, though, leaving the White rubber visible in various sections of the shoe.
