      • The ditty sung by Kelly, Scotty, and Fraulein while in the car is "The Schnitzelbank Song", a German-language children's song. It has also been used in various movies such as Wedding Present (1936) and Stalag 17 (1957).

        Scotty: (after talking to Ropp) Have a little camel kidney.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Kelly: Well, Ropp, um...you really have no idea who it might have been who, uh, threw the snakes into Mrs. Murphy's chowder?
        Kelly is alluding to the song "Who Threw the Overalls in Mrs. Murphy's Chowder?". Written in 1898 by George Giefer, it became associated with St. Patrick's Day celebrations, and a popular version of it was recorded by Bing Crosby in 1956.

      • Kelly: (to Scotty, standing in the jeep) O'Toole...O'Toole...down!
        Kelly is alluding to Peter O'Toole (born 1932), the Irish actor who played the historical figure T.E. Lawrence in the 1962 film, Lawrence of Arabia. T.E. Lawrence (1988-1935) was a British officer who gained fame in World War I because of his vast knowledge of the Middle East and his success in desert warfare.

      • Kelly: (to Scotty, who is riding a camel) C'mon, Mr. Wayne!
        Kelly is alluding to the American actor, John Wayne (1907-1979). Wayne appeared in more than 35 films in the Western genre and was a skilled rider.

      • Scotty: What time is it?
        Kelly: It's quarter to two and there's no one in the place except you and me.
        Kelly quotes the lyrics to renowned Harold-Arlen-Johnny Mercer song, "One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)" that debuted in the 1943 musical, The Sky's the Limit.
