  • Trivia

    • Goof: This is a clothing continuity mistake. In the previous wine cellar scene, the sneakers worn by Hogan and Carter have visibly clean and bright White sides and toe cap (even when close to the camera). In this scene, the same sneakers are now Black on the rubber sides and toe cap, instead of White. Even the eyelets are darker in color than in the first scene showing Hogan and Carter leaving the truck.

    • This episode is the first time Hogan kisses a woman outside of camp. As she enters the wine cellar looking for General Schmidt, Hogan grabs her, turns her towards the wall, and kisses her. Afterwards while staying in the shadows, he pushes her around the door and tells her auf wiedersehen.

      She leaves smiling thinking the General kissed her in a very shy and romantic manner.

    • During WWII the U.S. Army issued Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars sneakers, as well as Pro-Keds. The episode stays true to history, as Hogan and Carter are wearing Black Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars during the mission outside of camp.

    • During the mission Hogan and Carter wear Black clothing. Black toboggan cap, Black t-shirt, Black pants, Black leather belt, Black socks, and Black sneakers. They also use Black grease on their face and hands.

      The sneakers, though, have some White on them and the eyelets are also visible. The rubber sides and toes are White, but have Black grease on them. The grease covers only part of the rubber, though, leaving the White rubber visible in various sections of the shoe.

    • Colonel Robert Hogan is the first of our heroes ever seen outside of camp on a mission, with Carter being the second.

      We see them as they leaves the truck used to pick up the six captured commandos, As Klink inspects each truck leaving the camp, Hogan and Carter hide on the side of the truck rolled up a canvas tarp attached to the truck. Once there they roll down the side of the truck.

    • This episode is the first time we see a mission outside of camp. While other missions have been outside of camp, they have been presented by word of mouth (e.g. giving orders, reports, etc).

  • Quotes

    • Schultz: Colonel Hogan, you shouldn't wipe your hand on the Kommandant.
      Hogan: Well you won't get us a roller towel!

    • Klink: If the prisoners ask any questions about these explosions, you know nothing. You are ignorant.
      Schultz: Oh, I can handle that.
      Klink: I know.

    • Klink: I will throw them in the cooler for life. Even after the war. Even if we lose!

    • Hogan: (to Klink) Six went to Kleifeld. Six. You got one. Six to one. And yours with a busted flipper, a factory second.

    • Hogan: (after Lebeau's outburst) Lebeau is a bit emotional.

    • Schmidt: What is it you want?
      Hogan: Cleveland.
      Schmidt: Cleveland?
      Hogan: I want to be Burgermeister. Oh, you don't have to worry about me, sir. I'll be loyal. One set of books.

    • Hogan: Look, if the Germans can have an American prisoner, why can't the American prisoners have a German prisoner? If we're wrong, what are they gonna do, lock us up?

    • Sgt. Walters: How are you gonna get there?
      Hogan: Through our local Traveler's Aid man: Col. Klink.
