Thanks to saturn1bguy who has more experience with the German language than I, I have corrected my signature line from:

"Rause, everbody raus! beneun"  phonetically spelled as I heard it.  Which means "Out, everybody >nonsense word<"

to

"Rause!  Everybody raus mit euch"

Which means "Out! Everybody out with you."

Schultz mixes up his English with German.  Probably in German, 'everybody' would be jedermann or alles.

Very cool!  Guten tag means good day, right?

Gut naben is good night.  Any thing else, Karl?

Nein, Guten Aben is good afternoon/evening.

Gute Nacht means Good Night.

I learned that "good night" is usually only used just before going to bed.  So, if you have guests leaving a party at, oh say 7:30, they and you would usually say, "Guten abend," or shorten it to, "abend."


In the episode, 'Evening of the Generals', when Burkhalter is giving instructions for the party to Klink he says to make sure there is plenty of, ........ not sure but it sounds like Geverteskeit or Deverteskeit.  His eyes say, "Pretty women."  I believe that is his meaning, but I don't yet know what he uttered.  I'm working on it.  Yes, Burkhalter is married, but he always was freindly with the ladies.  This, apparently, was not unusual at the time in Germany for married men to have a little something on the side.  Schultz too, a married man, was known to be friendly with the bar maids.  However, I don't think we are lead to believe Shultz was any more friendly than conversation.
