    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Despite Colonel von Zeppel's Prussian background, F Troop's resident German, Trooper Hoffenmueller, does not appear in this episode.

      • The opening scene in this episode showcases Ken Berry's talent for physical comedy with an extended sequence where he reads a letter while obliviously going around, through and over hazards in his path.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Col. von Zeppel: This fort lacks dicipline. In Prussia, things are different. If I order my men to march off a cliff, they march off a cliff!
        Parmenter: Isn't that hard on them?
        Col. von Zeppel: It's harder on me. I have to keep training new men.

      • O'Rourke: I'm glad they settled their differences like men -- in a poker game.
        Agarn: Yeah, but I still say the Colonel cheated. I don't see how three kaisers can beat a royal flush.

      • Col. von Zeppel: (at duel) Vat is your choice of veapons?
        Capt. Parmenter: How are you at arm wrestling?

      • Wild Eagle: Once we have brave who say he fly in air. He sew feathers on arms and he jump off mountain.
        Crazy Cat: He fly real good!
        Wild Eagle: But he land real bad.

      • O'Rourke: We don't want to go on the warpath!
        Wild Eagle: And me no want to go on warpath! (Whining) War paint make skin break out.

      • O'Rourke: What is that you're putting on the boots?
        Agarn: Well, I ran out of boot black, so I'm using what I put on my hair.
        O'Rourke: Hair oil on boots?
        Agarn: No. Bacon grease.
        O'Rourke: Ah, no wonder you smell like breakfast.

      • Wrangler Jane: I got a letter for ya. It's marked "Special, Rush, Urgent."
        Capt. Parmenter: I wonder if it's important.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The colonel's name, von Zeppel, is a reference to German airships, Zeppelins, made by the Zeppelin Company and pioneered by Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin. The most famous of the Zeppelins was the ill-fated Hindenburg, which burned up while landing in Lakehurst, New Jersey in 1937.
