  • Trivia

    • The General goes to Klink's quarter's through a door in Klink's office - never used again and later, the door is removed entirely.

  • Quotes

    • Klink: Hogan, there is something diabolical about you.
      Hogan: I know.

    • Stofle: Ah, he knows how to live, this Klink. Not how to die, but how to live.

    • Zolle: I see you find discipline distasteful, eh, Kommandant? I shall put that in my report.
      Klink: Sir, I admire discipline.
      Zolle: How fortunate...in case you should ever be on the receiving end.

    • (On capturing a German general)
      Hogan: Once in the barracks, we get him into the tunnel and to England for the duration.
      Carter: Colonel?
      Hogan: Mm-hmm?
      Carter: You sure that's a good plan?
      Hogan: You have a better one?
      Carter: Good plan. Good plan.

    • Stofle: The Allies would give anything, Putzi, to know where I am.
      Klink: But how could they possibly find out?
      Hogan: (hearing this conversation through the coffee pot) It's simple. Kinch, radio London and tell them.

    • Kinch: Oh, Colonel, there's a Kraut general outside.
      Hogan: (slams the book he's reading shut) That's the trouble with prison camps: you never have a minute just to do nothin'.

  • Notes

    • This episode marked the only appearances from Gilbert Green, Britt Nilsson and Ramon Bieri.

    • This episode marks the first of three unrelated appearances by Horst Ebersberg.

    • This episode marks the first of four unrelated appearances by Gavin MacLeod.

    • This episode appears second on the VHS collection's "Klink!" volume.

    • Gavin MacLeod, best known for playing agreeable 'wimps' on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (Murray) and on The Love Boat (Captain Steubing) gets to show off a greater acting range in Hogan's Heroes. He appears often as (different) German officers with great authority, slightly maniacal & menacing - but of course, always defeated by Hogan.

  • Allusions

    • Gridley:
      Just before Zolle is sprayed with water, Kinch says, 'You may fire when ready, Gridley.' This is a version of the famous phrase said by Admriral George Dewey to the captain of his flagship, Charles Vernon Gridley, just before the Battle of Manila Bay in the Spanish-American War.

    • The episode is a pun on the celebrated Broadway musical "Hello, Dolly."
