    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Larry Hovis' hands are uncommonly ungloved during the vest testing scene. His left bears a real-life wedding ring which he refused to remove during filming. (This is why Carter nearly always wore black gloves.)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • DuBois: What is this madness?
        Kinch: Shh! Just play along with Hogan. He's got a plan.
        DuBois: But plumbing? I was a real estate salesman in Fontainbleu before the war!
        Kinch: That's close enough!

      • Klink: (to DuBois) Now, you entered Germany, why?
        Hogan: Maybe he likes the weinerschitzel.

      • (DuBois and LeBeau are speaking in French)
        Schultz: Don't you know it's not polite to talk a language nobody else understands?
        LeBeau: We understand it.
        Schultz: Oh, that's different.

      • Hogan: "Sugar candy" is code for something special.
        LeBeau: Maybe they'll drop us some USO girls.
        Kinchloe: Could also mean heavy equipment.
        Hogan: After two years here, who cares what they look like?

      • (to LeBeau, who asked if he could look up old girlfriends in Paris)
        Hogan: Ration yourself.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Hogan references the Johnstown Flood while discussing Klink's plumbing problems.

        The Johnstown Flood disaster occurred on May 31, 1889. It was the result of several days of extremely heavy rainfall, made worse by the failure of the South Fork Dam situated 14 miles upstream of the town of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, which unleashed a torrent of 20 million gallons of additional water.

      • LeBeau suggests jokingly that London may drop some USO girls to the prisoners.

        The USO was founded in 1941 in response to a request from President Franklin D. Roosevelt to provide morale and recreation services to uniformed military personnel.
