  • Trivia

    • When Schultz puts the notice on the bulletin board he uses two push pins one each at the top and bottom, but in close-ups there are four push pins, two at the bottom and one on the right side.

    • This episode, the first to be produced for the second season, had a different recording of the writer/director music and closing theme than heard in any other episode.

  • Quotes

    • Schultz: Halt, who goes there?
      Hogan: Oliver Twist.

    • Hogan: Look, when you get to England, don't forget your mission: to organize the Schultz Brigade.
      Burmeister: The Schultz Brigade.
      Hogan: Right. Play your cards right...you might make second lieutenant.
      Bussie: But, who is Schultz?
      Hogan: Who is Schultz?
      Bussie: Ja.
      Hogan: Only the most courageous, intrepid, daring, gutsy...
      (Schultz opens the door, sees Bussie and Burmeister in the American uniforms)
      Schultz: I see nothing! Nothing! (leaves)
      Hogan: That's Schultz.

    • (Hogan sends Newkirk and Carter out in German uniforms)
      Hogan: How are your accents?
      Newkirk: (in rough voice) Jawohl, Herr Colonel.
      Hogan: Don't say too much. Carter?
      Carter: Japole, Herr Colonel.
      Hogan: Don't say anything at all.

    • Klink: General Burkhalter, I give you my word, I never talked to Col. Hogan about this at all! What am I saying?
      Burkhalter: I have no idea, Klink. What I have to say will be brief: Tomorrow you will be shot!

    • (as a hail of gunfire sails over their heads)
      Klink: I'm going to call out the guards!
      Hogan: Do that, they'd shoot ya -- you're an escaped prisoner.
      Schultz: Shouldn't we take that chance?

    • Hogan: Yes, indeed, Schultz, I can see it now: You'll be a legend in your own time. The Schultz Brigade, in memory of the intrepid guard, who once...
      Schultz: I hear nothing!
