Season 1

Hold That Tiger [1.02]

Schultz: I see nothing. I was not here. I did not even get up this morning!

[General Hofstader gets out of his staff car and marches over to Klink.]
Colonel Klink: What an honor to have you here —
General Hofstader: Where is my tank, Klink?
Colonel Klink: Hasn't it come back yet?
General Hofstader: No. Klink, I released a tank to you to put down a riot by prisoners. I see no riot, I see no tank! All I see is a Colonel about to become Corporal!
Colonel Klink: Please, General — it will turn up! I have searched the barracks, the surrounding areas and the prisoners—
General Hofstader: [sarcastically]: The prisoners? Nobody had it in his pocket?! We are talking about a Tiger tank Klink!! Not a toy dump truck!

Cpl. Peter Newkirk: Steal a German tank?
Col. Robert E. Hogan: We'll give it back... after we take it apart and make blueprints of it.
Sgt. James 'Kinch' Kinchloe: Well, how do we get ahold of it?
Cpl. Louis LeBeau: How do we get it in here?
Cpl. Peter Newkirk: Where are we going to hide a tank?
Sgt. Andrew Carter: Where do we take it apart?
Col. Robert E. Hogan: Look, I got the idea of stealing it, right? The rest is detail.

Kommandant of the Year [1.03]

Col. Klink: Tell me, Schultz, which colonel is running this camp, Hogan or me? I sometimes wonder.
Schultz: Me too, Herr Komman…
[Klink gets up.]
Col. Klink: I am the colonel who will sign your transfer for the Russian front.
Schultz: Boy, are you running the camp.

The Late Inspector General [1.04]

Klink: I am well aware, Colonel Hogan, there is nothing you and your men would not do to try to undermine my position, even to have me replaced.
Hogan: Replace you, are you kidding? We'd do anything to keep you here.

[After Kinchloe switches on a tape of a BBC broadcast in the presence of Klink, Schultz, and the Inspector General.]
Klink: Schultz! Where is that radio?
Schultz: They didn't tell me!

The Flight of the Valkyrie [1.05]

[Hogan brings in a "disguised" woman in male uniform.]
Schultz: Where did she come from? Don't tell me, but wherever it was, put her back!

The Prisoner's Prisoner [1.06]

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: 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?

German Bridge is Falling Down [1.07]

Hogan: We're gonna build the bridge with a very special feature.
Newkirk: What do you mean by that?
Hogan: It's going to be the only bridge in the world with a built-in bomb.

Klink: Bribe me, eh? I will throw them in the cooler for life. Even after the war. Even if we lose!

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.

Movies Are Your Best Escape [1.08]

Hogan: Carter, what are the boys in the metal shop working on?
Carter: Reversible tie pins. On one side it says "Heil Hitler". On the other, "I was in Switzerland during the war".

Go Light on the Heavy Water [1.09]

[Hogan is kissing Helga.]
Helga: Mmm, you smell good.
Hogan: The boys whipped up a little aftershave.
[Kisses her again.]
Helga: It's very exciting.
Hogan: It's called "unconditional surrender".

Top Hat, White Tie and Bomb Sight [1.10]

Hogan: Newkirk, what about a civilian suit this time for me?
Newkirk: Righto, guv'nor, you got it.
Hogan: Good. 'Civilian.' What a beautiful word. Next to 'girls.'
Newkirk: Colonel, don't you ever think about anything else but dames?
Hogan: Of course I do, but I fight it.

Burkhalter: Now let me see what we can do with Colonel Hogan.
Klink: I will have him brought here and we will start strenuous interrogation at once.
Burkhalter: Klink, you not only are irresistible, but you are also very subtle.
Klink: Thank you, sir!
Burkhalter: Like a broken leg.

Happiness is a Warm Sergeant [1.11]

Klink: Don't you give me any credit for having any brains?
Hogan: I refuse to answer on the grounds that I might tell the truth.

The Scientist [1.12]

Hogan: Colonel, you worry too much.
Klink: I worry? Huh. Your life is easy. You're only a prisoner of war.

Hogan: Didn't you learn anything from DuBois?
LeBeau: Well, most of the time we just made crepes suzettes.

The Pizza Parlor [1.22]

Hogan:: LeBeau, how are you on pizza?
LeBeau:: Pizza?! You would ask a Frenchman to cook a piece of cardboard with tomato sauce?
Hogan:: We swear not to tell anybody.
LeBeau: Ask me to dig a tunnel, yes. To climb a barbed wire, yes. But to make a pizza, no.
Hogan: We all have to make sacrifices.

The Battle of Stalag 13

Colonel Klink: Yesterday, I was only worried about the Russian front — now it looks like paradise. Hogan, what am I going to do?
[Hogan looks down at his watch.]
Colonel Hogan: Put your fingers in your ears.
{In the distance there is an explosion, Hogan drops casually while Klink and Schultz drop to ground cowering)
Colonel Klink: What was that?!
Colonel Hogan: Sounded like a staff car blowing up.
[In the distance there is a second explosion.]
Colonel Hogan:Coincidence — another staff car blowing up."
Colonel Klink: You knew those cars were going to blow up! How?
Colonel Hogan: It's obvious, sir — the Wehrmacht and Gestapo double-crossed each other.
Colonel Klink: Do you expect me to believe that?
Colonel Hogan: No sir, but it'll look neater in your report to Berlin.

[Lookouts warn Schultz is coming, Hogan hides picture of the area and pulls down portrait of a beautiful woman.]
Colonel Hogan: Now this is a woman. W-O-M-A-N, Oh, hi Schultz.
Schultz: What is thisl?
Hogan: It's a lecture i have to give every six months — army regulations.
Schultz: I don't believe you.
Hogan: You wanna know what we were really doing?
Schultz: No!

Colonel Klink: What am I going to do?!
Colonel Hogan: Think that the train will blow up.
Colonel Klink: The train will blow up?!
Colonel Hogan: Only if you believe. And you better do it quick.
Colonel Klink: I believe.
[Hogan looks down at his watch.]
Colonel Hogan: Again.
Colonel Klink: I believe.
[Hogan looks down at his watch.]
Colonel Hogan: Once more.
Colonel Klink: I believe! Oh, this is ridiculous.
[Distant explosion.]
Colonel Klink: What was that?!
Colonel Hogan: Sounded like a train blowing up.

Colonel Hogan: Remember, the enemy is everywhere.
Sergeant Schultz: Enemy?! Me an enemy?! I'm just as loyal a German soldier as any prisoner here in this room.
Colonel Hogan: We know that Schultz and we respect you for it.

[Hogan and the boys are about to blow up a radar tower.]
Hogan: Here we go.
Carter Sir, may I?
Hogan: Of course — where are my manners? These pyromaniacs are so sensitive.

[Carter and a German scientist who has just defected.]
Carter: Professor forgive my professional curiousity but do you think our side will ever make an atomic bomb?
Professor I hope not. It would be noisy. Very noisy.

Colonel Klink: No prisoner escapes from Stalag 13.
Hogan: I keep forgetting.

Colonel Klink: No prisoner escapes, not last night, not tonight, not never.
Hogan: You know, that's true.
Colonel Klink: Really?

Schultz: Hogan, there is a prisoner missing! Hogan, PLEASE, not again!

Klink: Even if I say so myself, [chuckles] when I turn on the charm, I can be irresistible.
Burkhalter: I have never had any trouble resisting you.

[Repeated line, whenever Hogan makes a comment.]
Major Hochsetter: WHAT IS THIS MAN DOING HERE?!!!!!!

[Repeated line.]
Major Hochsetter: All heads will roll!

[Repeated line.]
Schultz: I see nothing!!!!

Carter: Hello? Oh, hi... I didn't mean to hang up on you before but you really do have the wrong number. This is a prisoner of war camp. Who am I? I'm a prisoner.
Hogan: Carter...

Klink For the Defense

General Burkhalter: Klink is a magnificent actor. Look how well he's played the part of a German officer all these years.

Major Hochstetter: Kommandant Klink: a man who could have been great, except he wasn't very good.

Colonel Klink: I have been appointed Haufman's defense council.
Colonel Hogan: How'd that happen?
Colonel Klink: I'm told I volunteered.

Colonel Hogan: What's your defense?
Colonel Klink: Since Colonel Houfman has served his country gallantly in the past, I will try and get him a smaller firing squad.

[before the court marshall]
Colonel Klink: I don't think I'll have any trouble getting him off with the death penalty.
