    • (Carter gives Hogan the fountain pen/bomb)
      Carter: It's a most unusual fountain pen for writing off people.
      Newkirk: And the whole thing is a bomb?
      Carter: We're only blowing up one guy.

    • Hogan: In the report Kinch received from headquarters, what did it say about his being married?
      Newkirk: Said he'd been down the aisle, made the trip four times.
      Hogan: He's practically a commuter!

    • Klink: We just want to prove to him what wonderful, warm people we Germans are.
      Hogan: Well, yeah. You can't keep a thing like that a secret.

    • Hogan: It means the something we're looking for is a 'someone.'
      Kinchloe: I say, that's good thinking.
      Hogan: That's why I'm a colonel.
      LeBeau: If it's a 'someone,' who is it?
      Hogan: If I was that smart, I'd be a general.

    • (Carter holds up a shirt full of holes while doing laundry)
      Hogan: Carter, I hate to criticize, but I think you're makin' the soap too strong.
      Carter: It's gotta be strong if you're gonna get rid of the dirt.
      Hogan: But not strong enough to get rid of the clothes!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Hogan gets Klink to look up the mystery visitor in "Who's Who."

      "Who's Who" refers to a widely-accepted series of publications, listing names and affiliations of persons deemed to be important. Today it is used as a term to describe famous people and list those who make certain contributions to certain causes.

    • The title of this episode directly alludes to a 1936 Dale Carnegie self-help book entitled "How to Win Friends and Influence People."

      The writing embraces assertiveness and enhancement of personal habits for the purpose of advancing oneself.
