  • Trivia

    • After Klink divests Schultz of his temporary command, Klink's monocle is absent, but mysteriously appears just before he places Schultz's helmet upon his head.

  • Quotes

    • Klink: I am a highly-efficient, well-trained officer, and I have made a valuable contribution to our war effort.
      Burkhalter: Contribution!? Klink! Single-handed, you cut the thousand-year Reich down to a bare six months! In fact, we may not last until Christmas!

    • Burkhalter: Schultz will assume command at once. Klink, you will act as advisor.
      Klink: How can I advise a man who is asleep on his feet most of the time?
      Schultz: I need a lot of rest.

    • Klink: This order is insane, absolutely insane!
      Burkhalter: It is signed "Adolf Hitler."
      Klink: Insane, yet sane.

    • Hogan: Tell 'em it's by order of the Kommandant.
      Klink: Oh, this is so degrading. Having to relay orders of a man like that. Honestly, I could cry.
      Hogan: I wouldn't do that, sir. What good's a rusty monocle?

    • Schultz: Colonel Hogan, I'm afraid. I don't know how to command.
      Hogan: Oh, there's nothing to it, Schultz. You come on strong, act big.
      Schultz: Bigger than I am?
      Hogan: Well, let's not get into science fiction.

    • Farmer: You spend too much money on war.
      Schultz: If you know how to conquer the world cheaper, write to Hitler!

    • Newkirk: There's more than one way around a Schultz.
      Hogan: No matter which route you take, it's a long trip.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When pep-talking Schultz for his new role as Kommandant, Hogan tells the story of the train which thought "I think I can, I think I can."

      This is based on "The Little Engine That Could," which tells the story of a seemingly-unable train favored to pull a heavy payload over a mountain in the face of other, more powerful (and possibly qualified) trains.
