At the Hitler parody the number to call "213-DU WERDEST EINE KRANKENSCHWESTER BRAUCHEN!!!" is seen on the screen, also spoken by Hitler. This is a threat spoken in (wrong) German language translating roughly to "You will need a nurse!". Correct German would have been: "Du WIRST eine Krankenschwester brauchen!!!" See more »


Hitler: Today on Hitler we will talk to Hollywood hunk Christian Slater.
Hitler: So tell me. In your next film. We get to see your but.
