    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Carter hides in a closet in Klink's outer office, where he is able to look through the eyes of a painting in Klink's inner office and spy on visiting officers.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Burkhalter: Is it possible I have been underestimating you all these years, Klink? No, it is not possible.

      • Klink: Sir, there is no reason for you to worry about security!
        Burkhalter: I don't worry about security -- it's you and Schultz that keep me on edge.

      • Klink: Just what do you think of him as a fighter, huh?
        Kinchloe: His footwork's lousy, he can't counter a punch, his timing stinks, and he doesn't breathe properly.
        Hogan: But you like him as a person.
        Kinchloe: He has a nice smile.

      • Hogan: When you're sparring with Bruno, you think you could lay him out?
        Kinchloe: Lay him out? The problem's gonna be keeping him on his feet.

      • (telephone rings)
        Klink: Hello, Colonel Klink speaking, Heil Hitler… Oh, General Burkhalter, how very nice to hear from you… What's that, sir? Yes, sir, "shut up and listen," yes sir.

    • NOTES (4)

      • John Stephenson appeared in unrelated roles in all eight episodes of Hogan's Heroes and had a long career spanning from 1953 to 2010 with 253 total credits.

        This marks the only appearance from Chuck Hicks, Frankie Van and Ralph Medina.


        Ralph Medina was the stage name for Lev Mailer, a well respected a veteran actor, director, coach, and teacher in Hollywood in both film and television on and off camera beginning with the original Star Trek series. Lev Mailer's birth name was Ralph Maurer.

      • This episode appears third on the VHS collection's "Impossible Schemes" volume.

      • This episode marks the first of two unrelated appearances by James Savett. Interestingly, Savett only has two accepted credits to his name, both on Hogan's Heroes.

      • This episode marks the seventh of eight unrelated appearances by John Stephenson.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Burkhalter alludes to an American's (famed Jesse Owens) defeat of a German in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. This was a huge black eye for Germany in Hitler's estimation.
