A pack of Benson and Hedges cigarettes is superimposed over some of the closing credits.
Newkirk, (Richard Dawson), does not appear in this episode. Olsen (Stewart Moss), fills in during this episode and a handful of others. It is likely due to his resemblance to Hogan and other skills, making him a valued 6th man, yet he's just not made a series regular.
Klink:(about Hogan) Comes in here for ping-pong balls and gets himself invited to a party.
Klink: I, uh, was prepared to be ignorant just as you ordered, Herr General.
Burkhalter: The most unnecessary orders I ever gave.
(Hogan speaks to a camp guard dog)
Hogan: Heil Hitler!
(dog barks and growls ferociously at Hogan)
Hogan: You sure he's a German Shepherd?
Carter: Maybe our guys have invaded Europe.
Hogan: We'd be the first to know.
Carter: We would?
Hogan: Sure. That great German war machine, Colonel Klink, would be hiding under his bed.
Kinch: Come on, Schultz, you can't be all that stupid.
Schultz: Who says I can't?
LeBeau: Colonel, the guards in those towers are very nervous at night.
Hogan: It's my guess they won't shoot.
LeBeau: And if they shoot me, it means you guessed wrong!
Hogan: No one's perfect.
Hogan: Carter, we've got six planes: we need six demolition charges, short-time fuses.
Carter: You got it, boy. I mean, sir.
Hogan: Carter, I don't know what I'd do without ya. But sometimes I'd like to try.
