Guard: What's that?

(after the guards enter Miss Price's house after hearing the yowling)

Colonel: Don't be a fool, there's no such thing as a witch!

(after seeing the size of the army of advancing inanimate objects)
Guard: Shall we retreat sir?
Colonel: Retreat? We are German Soldiers! We do not retreat!

(as the Germans are running away)
Colonel: Hold the line or I will shoot you! You are German soldiers!
