      • Jones: Why don't we chop off their trouser buttons?
        Mainwaring: What?
        Jones: If we chop off their trouser buttons and they try to run away, that would show something unusual.

      • Jones: I cannot let them put a bomb down your trousers, sir. They can put twenty bombs down my trousers and they will not make me crack!
        Mainwaring: (to the German officer) You can't win this war. See the sort of men this country breeds.
        U-Boat Captain: Rather stupid ones.

      • Wilson: Now listen to me, you German fellows. Would you mind getting up against the wall and putting your hands up, please?

      • Pike: (singing) Whistle while you work, Hitler is a twerp. He's half barmy, so's his army, whistle while you work.
        U-Boat Captain: Your name will also go on the list. What is it?
        Mainwaring: Don't tell him, Pike!
        U-Boat Captain: Pike! (writes Pike's name in his notebook)

    • NOTES (1)

      • The most well remembered scene in Dad's Army is featured in this episode; the scene between Pike, Mainwaring and the U-Boat Captain. This is also the most consistantly used in any TV documentary that references the show.
