      • Mainwaring: I was a bit ashamed of our shooting last week.
        Wilson: Oh, I don't know, sir. Some of the men didn't do that badly.
        Mainwaring: I still fail to understand how they could possibly mistake the tyres on the Area Commander's staff car for the target.
        Wilson: What? All four of them?
        Mainwaring: No, all five of them. They got the spare tyre as well.

      • (The men try to disguise Miss La Plaz as a member of the platoon.)
        Jones: She still looks like a girl to me.
        Walker: How would you remember?

      • Mainwaring: The problem with you, Wilson, is that you have the Blimp mentality.

        Colonel Blimp was originally a cartoon character created in the late 19th century by David Low. A very traditional soldier, he could not stand any innovations in warfare. The name got worldwide recognition in 1943 with the release of "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp", in which none other than John "Frazer" Laurie played a role. As the film was released three years after the events of this episode, Mainwaring must be referring to the cartoon character.
