    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • This marks the final appearance of Cynthia Lynn as Fraulein Helga as she would be replaced for the final five seasons.

      • A rare use of impossible sound effects is displayed in this episode: As Hogan leaves Klink's office and fingers the arrow in the door, an external "boing" sound is used to accentuate the action.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Klink: Schultz, did you see anyone in the compound just now -- anyone shooting arrows?
        Schultz: Shooting arrows? No, Herr Kommandant, but this afternoon the prisoners were pitching horseshoes.

      • (an arrow is shot through the cap on Klink's head)
        Klink: What is it?
        Hogan: I don't know. Ever do anything nasty to Robin Hood?

      • Burkhalter: (speaking of Vanetti) How can he be so brainy and dumkopf enough to blow himself up?

      • (Hogan gives Crittendon the plan to kill Vanetti)
        Crittendon: How will I know him?
        Hogan: You know me, and you know Klink. He'll be the one you don't know.
        Crittendon: I say...jolly good!

      • Carter: Dr. Vanetti? Uh, forgive my, uh, professional curiosity, sort of, but do you think our side will ever come up with the atomic bomb?
        Vanetti: I hope not. It would be noisy, very noisy.

      • (Klink and Vanetti are having dinner)
        Klink: And, uh, I trust things are proceeding well with your little project, Dr. Vanetti?
        Vanetti: Klink, what do you know about my project?
        Klink: I know nothing, nothing at all. I just asked if things went well.
        Vanetti: Even that is a most dangerous question.
        Klink: Of course, I understand completely.
        Vanetti: Do you?
        Klink: No, I do not understand. I know nothing, I understand nothing.

      • (Crittendon comes out of the tunnel)
        Crittendon: Hogan, old boy. Good to see you again. I say, fantastic operation you've got going on down there, absolutely fantastic. Why didn't you tell me about it when I was here before, eh?
        Hogan: Colonel Crittendon, at that time, you said the only duty of a prisoner of war was to escape, and if we were engaged in any more than that, you'd tell the Germans.
        Crittendon: I said that? Yes, I suppose I did.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Hogan references Robin Hood after an arrow is shot through Klink's cap.

        Robin Hood is a mythical hero known for his good works for the poor and his impeccable skill with a bow and arrow.
