* RefugeInAudacity: Bronski sneaks a dozen Jews who were hiding in the theater basement out of the building while it's literally packed with Nazis by dressing them in clown outfits and have them pop out of a clown car and walk out the front door. When two of them have a panic attack because of all the Nazis around, Sasha saves the day by donning an SS cap, publicly accusing them of being Jews, and escorting them out at the point of a FlagGun.

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: Bronski impersonates Erhardt to get the list from Sitelski, and then impersonates Sitelski to convince Erhardt that the list is useless, as the names on it are all people who Erhardt had already executed. Upon getting back home, he notes that that was his greatest performance ever, and virtually nobody knows that he did it.

He then names two people the Gestapo had recently executed.

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Erhardt is mostly a comical buffoon like the Nazis of ''Series/HogansHeroes'', but unlike them, it's really clear he is a dangerous, evil man. A good illustration is one scene where he is on to Jozef Tura's disguise and puts him through some psychological torture on the logic that Tura is a clever man. When Erhardt's assistant wonders what to do if Tura isn't clever, Erhardt's response is (paraphrased) "Then we'll break every bone in his body."
