    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Klink: Those staff officers -- they are so clever.
        Burkhalter: Klink! I am a staff officer.
        Klink: I didn't mean you sir; you're not clever. I... you're clever, you're clever!
        Burkhalter: Shut up, Klink.

      • Burkhalter: If we work hard, we may be able to win this war... even with Klink on our side.

      • Carter: Well, it does take intelligence to be stupid.
        Newkirk: Do you mind if I have a little time to think that over?

      • Kohler: Do you actually suspect Colonel Klink of disloyalty?
        Burkhalter: Disloyalty? No. Stupidity, yes.

      • Burkhalter: Don't contradict me.
        Klink: Yes, sir.
        Kohler: I must agree with the General's conclusion.
        Klink: But it's impossible!
        Burkhalter: Don't contradict him, either.
        Klink: Yes, sir.
        Burkhalter: In fact, don't contradict anybody without permission from me.

      • Hogan: Schultz?
        Schultz: Colonel Hogan, I know nothing, nothing!
        Hogan: You don't know what I'm gonna ask.
        Schultz: I don't care. I know nothing about everything.

      • Kohler: There is a flow of information from... (points at map) this point.
        Klink: Major, you have your finger on Stalag 13!
        Burkhalter: And I have my finger on you, Klink.

      • (Gen. Burkhalter suggests Klink may be leaking information to the Allies)
        Klink: Me? I am a loyal officer, sir.
        Gen. Burkhalter: Loyalty counts for nothing without efficiency.

    • NOTES (4)

      • If you recognize the voice of Major Kohler but not the face, there is a very good reason. John Stephenson is one of America's most prolific voice actors performing voice work on dozens of shows going back to the 1950's through at least 2006 and perhaps best known as the narrator for Dragnet 1967.

      • This episode marks the second of eight unrelated episodes by John Stephenson.

      • This episode appears second on the VHS collection's "General Burkhalter" volume.

      • Much of this episode's plot, like the series itself, is fairly closely tied to that of the classic play and film "Stalag 17."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Two radio quiz shows are referenced with this episode. The episode's title Information, Please was a show which aired on NBC from May 17, 1938 to June 25, 1948. Hogan's comment "You win 5 silver dollars, would you like to try for 20?" refers to the quiz show Dr. I.Q., which aired from 1939 to 1950 on the NBC and ABC networks. During game play, contestants would play for silver dollars, risking some of them each time they answer another question.
