    • Pvt. Hitchcock (wounded, and on a stretcher): I hope this doesn't lay me up too long, Sarge. Sgt. Troy: You'll be back pushing your luck soon enough. Just listen to the doctors, and leave the nurses alone. Pvt. Pettigrew: That'll be the day!

    • Col. von Helbing: Battle fatigue has not clouded my ability to recognize American swine!

    • Sgt. Troy: Ready, Mark? Pvt. Hitchcock: It's not worth it, Sarge. Sgt. Troy: You just keep your mouth shut. And if you have to moan, do it in German!

    • Sgt. Troy: Where's the driver? Sgt. Moffitt: He preferred not to come along. But I brought you a little bonus. She's with the German nursing corps. Her english is good, but she's rather disagreeable. Sgt. Troy: I'll work on it!

    Notes (2)

    • Beginning with this episode, and continuing through episode 17, the series was filmed mostly in Almeria, Spain. By the mid-1960s, Almeria was an choice destination for international film productions that required desert landscapes. Movies such as King of Kings, El Cid, Lawrence of Arabia and Patton were filmed there. A great number of Italian westerns were filmed there as well, including The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Beginning with the 18th episode, the production of The Rat Patrol shifted back to utilizing the Mojave desert area in southern California.

    • Albert Paulsen would play a German officer again in The Field of Death Raid which aired in Season Two.
