LeBeau: Carter, I'll never doubt you again!
Newkirk: What's the matter?
Carter: (looking at his watch, disappointed) The bombs were one minute late.
Hogan: Carter, I want you to start thinking.
Newkirk: Well, we're dead before we start.
Hogan: Carter, you're a genius.
Carter: Well, I wouldn't go that far.
Hogan: No, I really mean it. You're a genius.
Carter: Maybe I'd go that far.
Klink: Sir, I must apologize, but sometimes they act like little children.
Hogan: Right, but we've got the most wonderful daddy in the whole world.
(Klink is reviewing personnel invited to an important party)
Klink: Very impressive list. It doesn't have the name Colonel Klink in there. Probably an oversight at Headquarters.
Burkhalter: I consider it the perfect oversight.
This episode marked the third mostly unrelated appearances of seven from John Hoyt.
This episode marked the first unrelated appearance of five from Ben Wright.
This episode marked the second of two unrelated appearances from Maurice Marsac.
Ben Wright (Gen. Mercer) played another German, Herr Zeller in "The Sound of Music" in which he was a very evil Nazi, the enemy of Captain Von Trapp. Only a couple of years after the movie, he is the Underground contact and the good guy in this episode.
He was not German at all, but was a master of dialects and was very convincing because of this.
Though it is detailed as appearing last, this episode appears second on the VHS collection's "Bombs Away" volume.
