    • (on his role of Schultz of Hogan's Heroes)
      Banner: It amazes me, the response from kids. Beautiful blondes don't write me. It's always kids. I go over big with them. I'm not a father figure. I'm more the good uncle. It's so touching.

    • Banner: Just so people don't get prisoner-of-war camps mixed up with concentration camps, you can't make fun of a concentration camp.

    • Banner: I see Schultz as the representative of some kind of goodness in every generation.

    • Banner: Who can play Nazis better than us Jews?

    • (about Hogan's Heroes)
      Banner: I had just about given up in this business. Then along came this show. I still shake my head in wonderment because I know there are an awful lot of good actors out there who are forced to pump gas to make a living. I'm lucky, and I appreciate it.
