(LeBeau speaks to the guard dogs in French) Newkirk: What did you say to them? LeBeau: I promised to introduce them to Lassie after the war. Lassie Premiered on September 1, 1954 and WW II ended in 1945.
Lassie appeared in a number of feature films during the 1940s prior to airing on television as a series. Her first film, Lassie Come Home, debuted in 1943, certainly making it possible for some of the American prisoners to know of her. I'll grant you that the Frenchman LeBeau probably shouldn't have had a clue, though.
Stauffen: (looking at Hitler's portrait) He dares call himself Supreme Commander. But we'll put him out of business, I promise you.
Hogan: It's the least you can do, considering.
Stauffen: Considering what?
Hogan: You're the same bunch of guys that put him in business.
Hogan: (after a devastating loss) This plan better work. It's already got an expensive price tag on it.

(Schultz is counting the prisoners at roll call)
Hogan: Schultz, why don't you take off your shoes and socks? You're running out of fingers.
Schultz: Mmmm, don't confuse me!
Newkirk: Hey, Schultz, why don't you count our legs and divide by two?
Klink: Now I've just had word that General Stauffen of the Fuhrer's headquarters will personally inspect Stalag 13. I expect every prisoner in this camp to clean up and look neat.
Newkirk: I can't do it. Somebody stole me mascara brush.
Schultz: What kept you!?
Kinchloe: I was gettin' a message from London on our secret radio.
Schultz: Well, as long as you have a good excuse… (chuckles) Secret radio… (chuckles) in a POW camp… (chuckles) impossible!
Kinchloe: Now he tells me.
