    • General von Helmreich: You know, we Germans expect to lose some battles, but not the final one. Sgt. Moffitt: You're talking like one of your propaganda leaflets. I'd hoped for something better from you.

    • Pvt. Hitchcock (after being traded to the Arab woman for water): This, fella, is what's known as the supreme sacrifice. I'll see you all back at the ranch!

    Allusions (1)

    • General von Helmreich: Described by Sgt. Troy as "the most famous general in the Afrika Corps", the insignia on his uniform shows him to be a colonel general (and not a field marshal); thus, von Helmreich most likely represents Colonel General Hans-Jurgen von Arnim, who eventually took over command of Army Group Afrika after Field Marshal Rommel's departure.
