FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Hogan: (working out details for Klink's Kommandant of the year medal) A German eagle clutching a prisoner of war by the throat - but friendly.
      Carter: Okay.
      Hogan: We also need a scroll. Make it nice and big and fancy, curlicues and stuff. Make it... baroque.
      Carter: You mean, like cupids?
      Hogan: Why not? Cupids never hurt anybody.
      Carter: Okay, cupids.
      Klink: (later in Klink's office, when Klink gets phoney dispatch about his Kommandant of the Year Award) A Colonel Schneider, the staff will be awarding a medal and a scroll.
      Hogan: A scroll! That's pretty fancy. Probably even have cupids on it.

    • Col. Klink: Tell me, Schultz, which colonel is running this camp, Hogan or me? I sometimes wonder.
      Schultz: Me too, Herr Komman… (Klink gets up)
      Col. Klink: I am the colonel who will sign your transfer for the Russian Front.
      Schultz: Boy, are you running the camp.

    • Col. Hogan: (seeing the truck with the rocket through the periscope) That is bigger than a piano. It's even bigger than a bread box.

    • Schultz: Don't you know no one is allowed outside after roll call!
      Carter: Schultz, I was just going into town to get some beer. I'd have been back by, say, June. July at the latest.

    • Hogan: Little Miss Muffet has a big new tuffet that goes boom.
