    • (Klink begins to play; Newkirk, Lebeau and Schultz are in the kitchen)

      Schultz: Somebody is strangling a cat.

    • Newkirk: (as Hitler) It is possible that you have heard rumors that Berlin is in ruins, Hamburg is a shambles and so on. I order you not to believe these things, even if they are true!

    • Klink: Col. Hogan, I have decided not to play in your prisoners' orchestra. I may, however, do a solo over the loudspeaker system.
      Hogan: Well, If i were you, I'd wait until the general leaves, sir.
      Klink: Why?
      Hogan: I mean, how would it look, a mass escape while he's here?

    • Hogan: We're selling an idea. So we've got to attack them at their weakest point.
      Others: Schultz!
      Hogan: Who else?

    • (Hogan is looking at the pictures of Gen. von Kaplow's documents)
      Newkirk: General leave for Berlin yet, Colonel?
      Hogan: Yeah, and I wish he had taken Klink's fiddle with him.
