episode details to follow

Colonel Klink's old friend, Major Hans Kronman, comes to Stalag 13 for a visit, where he is quickly arrested by the Gestapo. Before he is dragged away from the building, Kronman slips something to Colonel Hogan. Examining it later in the barracks, it turns out that it is the key to a hotel's safe deposit box. Kinch appears from the tunnel with information from London on Major Kronman. He is believed to be a member of a conspiracy to kill Hitler. Unfortunately, Hogan and the gang have to write him off. They consider the possibility of going to the hotel to open the box with the key. The job of cracking the hotel's safe is too big for Newkirk to handle, so he suggests a professional job, done by a man he once knew, Alfie the Artist. Alf is a professional safecracker, practicing for 40 years "with time off for bad behavior." London finds him and sends him in for the job. Hogan gets Klink's cooperation in the matter by saying that whatever is in that box could incriminate Klink as a possible member of the conspiracy, and by turning over the key, he would appear to be trying to cover up for himself. Hogan has Klink throw a party at the hotel in town so that the prisoners can get there and have Alf do his thing. The party is interrupted by the same Gestapo man who had arrested Kronman, but he soon leaves after a quick look around. Alf blows the safe, the prisoners get the contents, and the job is done. Inside the safe is a list of people that Kronman was going to contact. Hogan 'sells' the list to Klink in exchange for extra privileges, but Klink tries to revoke them after he has the list. Hogan counters by asking what made Klink so sure there isn't a copy of that list, winning Hogan and his men back their new extra privileges.
