Quotes: Springtime for Hitler
"We searched Broadway on and off
For singers with a cough
We had tryouts and auditions by the score
And to trip the light fantastic
We picked dancers who were spastic
If anyone jetted, we jetted them out the door

They shouted hooray
For that sausage on display
Where did we go right?
Our leading man was so gay
He nearly flew away
Where did we go right?
A show so easy to despise
Now it's up for the Pulitzer prize!
Oh, where, oh, where, tell us:

Where did we go right?"''
— Producers," Where Did We Go Right!?"

Wedge: Tycho, we're about to achieve a tremendous victory we don't want.
Tycho: We'll put that in your biography. General Antilles was so good he couldn't fail when he tried to.

"Things I have learned: Never put anything ugly or stupid into your game. Everyone will want one."

"I'm so unlucky that if I bought a cemetery, people would stop dying."

"When their producer took the idea of doing a cover of "Noize" to them, the band was less than thrilled. Lead singer Kevin DuBrow hated the song outright, to the point where he and drummer Frankie Banali conspired to sabotage the recording and make it impossible to release... He screamed loud and off-key, doing his best not to give a fuck while ironically forgetting that rock music is all about not giving a fuck."

"You could say 'failed'; I think a better word for it would be 'deliberately tanked.'"
