  • (To Helga after a passionate kiss) Six out of Ten.

  • [Singing the "Traditional Gestapo Dance" set to the tune of "The Hokey Pokey"] You put your left foot in, you put your left fut out! You do a lot of shouting and you shake your fist about. You light a little smokey and you burn down the town, that's what it's all about! (While executing a lopsided turn) Ahhh, Himmler, Himmler, Himmler!

  • René: (On the telephone to the Communist resistance) How much?! Now look here. It is just one little train. Well surely you could do it for a bit less than that. Is that your rock - bottom price? Well hang on a minute. (Puts down telephone, opens the till. Checks cash, and goes back to the telephone). No, no, I cannot go to that (pause). Well how would it be if we supplied the explosives? (panics slightly) No, no I do not want to leave my name, no, it is just an enquiry!

  • Edith: René! What are you doing with your arms around that girl?
René: You stupid woman? Can you not see she's suffering from claustrophobia? She accidentally locked herself in the larder.
Edith: But there is no key!
René: Exactly, that's why she couldn't get out.

Rene: It is to blow up the General! You must not let anyone light that fuse.
Geering: But where is the fuse?
Rene: It is the candle with the handle.
Geering: You do not need to kill the General, we have already arranged to kill the General... Do you not see? That if we kill him with the pill from the till by making with it the drug in the jug, you need not light the Candle with handle on the Gateau from the Chateau!
Rene: Simple plots are always the best.

  • Carstairs': Pretty place France, don’t you think so, Fairfax? Napoleon planted all these trees, you know?
Fairfax: Wonder when he had time to fight any battles?
Carstairs: He didn’t do it personally, fathead. He had them planted to keep the sun off his troops while they were marching up and down...

Do you notice that when ever we pass these peasant people they seem to stare at us in a rather odd way?

Fairfax: Maybe, because you’re driving a girl's bicycle.
Carstairs: Perhaps we’re doing something wrong. (A car drives by and almost crushes into them)
Carstairs: Fairfax, I think I’ve cracked it. We’re riding on the wrong side of the road!

  • Geering: It is not much to look at, Herr Colonel.
Colonel: Hans, you ignorant peasant, this is probably the first cuckoo- clock ever made. Absolutely priceless. Und this, this is the Fallen Madonna by Van Klomp, which will be worth a fortune after the war.
Geering: Is it wise to have it in your office?
Colonel: Who can see it about from Helga?
Geering: Come to think of it, it looks a little like Helga.
Colonel: You too?

  • Colonel: Hans, have you got the weedkiller?
Geering: Even better - the chemist gave me a pill containing all his best poisons. You take it with a glass of wine. One drink and... [impersonates a dead person] all is quiet on the Western Front.
Colonel: Are you sure it'll work?
Geering: Yes. I told him it was for you.
