Major Hans Kuehn: Very interesting. I must remember to mention it to my dear Uncle Karl when I write him.
Col. Wilhelm Klink: Uncle Karl?
Major Hans Kuehn: Yes, uh, Field Marshal Karl Von Streicher of the General Staff. His specialty is military protocol. Have you read his book on the chain of command?
Col. Wilhelm Klink: No.
Col. Robert E. Hogan: I have. Not a laugh in the book.

An executive officer causes trouble for Klink
18 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is another funny episode as Klink gets an executive officer that keeps referring to his Uncle Karl that is on the General Staff. His threats to call Uncle Karl, Field Marshal Karl Von Streicher, runs throughout the show and at times is very funny.

It appears that the executive officer, Major Hans Kuehn (played nicely by Sandy Kenyon), is bucking to get promoted and he does not care who he steps on. His footprint is directed right at Klink as he goes around Klink to get information to General Burkhalter about a bombing that he feels is going to take place. He does not know it, but Major Hans Kuehn has just been taken to task by Hogan and all the viewer can do is enjoy the ride.

There is a lot of quick humor in this show. Just a small conversation may produce a joke without much set-up time so the viewer has to be on their toes when the wit keeps flying in those short quotes. It appears the actors are more comfortable with the characters so the show has a flow that was not seen in earlier productions. Another good show.
