  • Quotes

    • Martin: Klink must be an idiot.
      Hogan: Oh, he has his good points if you look for 'em. 'Course, that could take a lifetime.

    • Hogan: At ease, Captain. We try to maintain an informal atmosphere here at the Enchanted Castle.
      Martin: Thank you, sir.
      Hogan: Seems to go with the beautiful surroundings.
      Schultz: A very nice guy.
      Klink: Shut up!

    • Carter: I've got my charges all set, sir.
      Hogan: Forget it. My first responsibility is the protection of this unit.
      Carter: The Colonel's right. In a way, we are his family.
      Hogan: Oh, I'm in a lot of trouble!

    • Hochstetter: (pointing at Schultz) He is not adding anything to this meeting.
      Klink: Except weight.

    • Martin: Did you say "emergency tunnel?"
      Hogan: Yeah, it's part of our system: we have an emergency tunnel (a tunnel out of camp,) a tunnel to the cooler, and a tunnel to Klink's quarters.
      Martin: (laughs) That's fantastic!
      Hogan: Someday we'll steal a train; we've got ourselves a subway.

    • Klink: Major Hochstetter, are you suggesting that Stalag 13 has any relationship to this sabotage, huh?
      Hochstetter: At last a little daylight filters through.
      Schultz: Uh, shall I raise the blinds?

    • Hogan: We earned our money for tonight.
      Newkirk: Not just tonight; this is the second big job this week.
      Carter: We've been busy as beavers. We oughtta get something extra for this job.
      Hogan: Wait 'til Christmas: I'll get you a nice set of Kraut trains to blow up.

      Dick Wilson was best known for his portrayal of "Mr. Whipple" for 25 years in Charmin commercials, although he had 112 credited appearances mostly in television, dating back to the 1950's.

      This marks the only appearance from Monte Markham.
      Monte Markham has produced, directed, narrated, and appeared as on-camera host for over 150 hours of documentary films for network television, launching The History Channel with their 35-hour series, The Great Ships, and 10 premiere "Epic" Biographies that inaugurated A&E's landmark Biography series. Today, with over 2,000 biographies on Amazon, his Michelangelo remains among the all time best sellers. Monte also received 130 credited appearances, mostly in television.


    • Although it is listed third, this episode actually appears fourth on the VHS collection's "Spy vs. Spy" volume.

  • Allusions

    • Hogan warns prisoners not to ask the possible spy about Ty Cobb's batting average.

      Ty Cobb was as American as apple pie at the time of this episode's filming. He was a professional baseball player who, when he retired, held ninety major league records.

    • The prisoners use the term "Jolly Roger" as radio code in this episode.

      "Jolly Roger" is the common name used to describe European and American pirate flags.
