    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Goof: Hogan's use of the phrase "...and he's bigger than a breadbox!" is an anachronism as the phrase 'bigger than a breadbox' was coined by Steve Allen for the gameshow What's My Line?, which begain in 1950, 6 years after the end of World War II.

      • General Tillman reveals that Hogan's team is classified in the military as "Unsung Heroes."

      • Goof: The title of this episode is improperly displayed as "How to Cook a German Goose With Radar" on its VHS Collection introductory screen.

      • Goof: Newkirk brandishes a knife and this is not seen as a serious security threat, even by Klink.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Klink: Hogan, it looks as if the Amercians have scraped the bottom of the manpower barrel.
        Hogan: I noticed it took four men to bring him in. Think of the trouble you're gonna have with the younger ones.

      • (Hogan 'berates' the men)
        Klink: You sound almost like a German officer.
        Hogan: Coming from you, Kommandant, that's high praise.
        Klink: I said almost!

      • Tillman: (after the Heroes help him) You know, I'd hate to be in a war with you guys on the other side.

      • Newkirk: Ain't exactly a spring chicken, is he?
        Carter: That's the oldest looking corporal I've ever seen.
        LeBeau: Hey, what's after corporal in your army?
        Hogan: For him? Social Security.

      • Hogan: There's a new prisoner coming in today.
        LeBeau: Mmm, I hope he's French. I'm dying to hear someone speak French again.
        Carter: Hey, I'll help you out. Uh, bonn jor, madam-mozel from Arrenteers.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Petticoat Lane:
        In the final scene, German soldiers are all over the camp and Newkirk likens it to 'Petticoat Lane on a Sunday.' He's referring to the Petticoat Lane Market, one of the most famous fashion and clothing markets in London.
