* The German word for "subversion" (not as in SubvertedTrope, but [[YouKeepUsingThatWord the common definition]]) is "untergraben", with "unter" meaning "below" and "graben" meaning "to dig". Probably the officer or the doctor ranted about the Freemasons subverting society, which uneducated Woyzeck took literally. That's why Woyzeck rambles about Freemasons having dug below the earth until everything's hollowed out during that scene with Andres.
