  • Quotes

    • (talking about the role of the Kommandant)
      : I thought to bring the necessary authenticity to the role, that I would consent to play the part.
      Buckles: Definitely not the type.
      Hogan: Definitely.

    • Schultz: Kommandant Klink has placed Maj. Buckles under my personal and special protection. I'm directly responsible that nothing, absolutely nothing happens to Maj. Buckles. Nothing is going to happen to Maj. Buckles?
      Carter: Of course not, Schultz. Just like nothing is happened to Benedict Arnold. Because we didn't catch him.

    • Klink: An Allied plane carrying this film strayed across our sacred borders and was, of course, shot down immediately.
      Hogan: Everybody's a critic.

    • Burkhalter: What is all this, Klink? (notices that Klink is dressed as a sergeant) And why are you out of uniform, or has Berlin finally caught up with you?
