  • An Unexpected Twist

    10
    This is one of my favorite episodes of the Series.This is mainly because of the last scenes of this episode.As for the other parts,they are important to.If itwas'nt for the earlier scenes,there would be no story.I last the last scenes because,it made me think.Hogan's Heroes may be a comedy,and makes us laugh,but that does'nt mean it can't make us think.This episode does both.aN underground leader is being held in aa heavily fortified Prison Camp.Hogan comes up with a plan to free him.He contacts the underground to have Burkalter kidnapped,to make a trade.Burkalter for the Underground Leader.Unfortunetly,this plan backfires as Klink is kidnapped instead(mistaken for Burkalter).The Gestapo will not release Hans Wagner,the underground leader.Hogan comes up with another plan.Through clever manuvering,Hogan,and his men will make the Germans think that Klink is in reality...Nimrod,a British Agent that nobody has been able to identify,or find.The plan works.The Germans make the trade,and as the Gestapo is about to question Klink concerning some secret plans which were found in Hilda's desk,Hogan comes in to say that the plans are for a model rocket that he,and his men had sent for.The Gestapo then receives word that Hans Wagner had arrived safely(letting Hochstetter know that he had been tricked).Ironcally,these plans are indeed important plans.It even came with a letter addressed to Hogan ,and it signed Nimrod.this is what made me wonder.How did Nimrod get into the Camp,to put those secret plans for Hogan to find?I guess some things are never ment to be known.moreless

    • Newkirk: (re decoding the message) Well, I'm not an expert like the major, sir.
      Burkhalter: (exasperated over the major wasting more than two hours and a pile of paper decoding the message, and still hasn't cracked it) Don't be too sure of that.

    • Burkhalter: (re Klink's abduction) Naturally, you will do everything in your power to apprehend the parties responsible for this outrage.
      Hochstetter: We will leave no stone unturned!
      Burhkalter: Don't go to all that trouble.

    • Burkhalter: It just doesn't seem possible: how I could have been so fooled by Klink.
      Hochstetter: Ah, "Nimrod" is a very brilliant man.
      Burkhalter: Yes, but Klink is such a stupid one.

    • Hochstetter: I'll call Headquarters and have them send over a cryptologist. No, wait a minute, I am a cryptologist!

    • Hogan: What about Colonel Klink?
      Burkhalter: What about him?
      Hogan: Well, he's also a man of outstanding qualities. Right, Schultz?
      Schultz: Oh, absolutely!
      Hochstetter: Such as?
      Schultz: Oh, there are so many.
      Hochstetter: Name one.
      Schultz: Well... there are not that many.

    • Hogan: I'm not interrupting anything, am I?
      Burkhalter: Of course you are! I've never seen you when you are not interrupting something.

    • Hogan: Schultz, you'd better get over to Klink's office, tell him his car will be ready in ten minutes.
      Schultz: Jawohl, Herr Kommandant, I mean Klink, Jawo--... oh you know what I mean.

    • Hochstetter: If ever I saw a guilty man, that is the one.
      Burkhalter: He still looks like stupid old Klink to me.

    • Klink: You know, Schultz, the trouble with you is you're afraid to say anything you think. Filled with fear, frightened to express any kind of opinion.
      Schultz: Oh no, Herr Kommandant. I talk about you all the time... when you are not around.
      Klink: Oh, shut up and drive.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Ironically, according to a certain 1980 work of non-fiction, "Nimrod" was the actual code-name for an Austrian-born refugee who worked for British Military Intelligence as a double-agent just prior to D-Day.

    • Hogan and the boys find plans for a project called "Hindenburg."

      Hindenburg, despite all of its other historical placements, also referred to a particular German World War I armament program.

    • The "coded message" given to Hochstetter mentions "Mairzy Doats."

      While generally recognized as a children's poem, "Mairzy Doats" is actually a 1943 Milton Drake song which generated many code names and passwords for Allied soldiers.

    • The "coded message" given to Hochstetter mentions "Little Boy Blue."

      "Little Boy Blue" is a nursery rhyme generally credited to ancient Middle Age writings.
