Security has been tightened

throughout the country.

All borders have been placed

on full alert.

Exit visas have been suspended

for the entire week.

In addition,

we have received assurances...

from our undercover agents

in the West...

that our actions to date

have gone completely undetected.

All military leaves

have been canceled...

and we have doubled the guard

around Dr. Flammond.

And finally, all systems...

are in readiness for deployment

of the Polaris Mine.

Just as you ordered,

General Streck.

Well done, Von Horst.

By Sunday, the entire

NATO submarine fleet...

will be here on their maneuvers

and completely vulnerable.

Major Crumpler...

what is the progress

of our diversionary plan?

The schedule

for the cultural festival...

is now complete, Herr General.

And you should be pleased to note

that at your personal request...

the Soviets have agreed to send

their celebrated tenor...

Vladimir Biletnikov.

Well done, Herr Major.

Then everything has gone

according to the plan.

Well, not exactly, mein General.

The American, Leonard Bernstein,

unfortunately has had to cancel.

But they are sending

another performer in his place.

In fact, we have just received...

this copy

of his most recent record album.

His name is Nick Rivers.

I'm sure he will be quite adequate.

As long as

the attention of the world...

is firmly fixed

on our cultural festival...

no one will know

what is about to happen.

And once again, Germany will become

united under one rule... ours!

After Sunday, there will be

no one to stop us!

Skeet surfin'

If everybody had a 12-gauge

And a surfboard too

You'd see 'em shootin'and surfin'

From here to Malibu

Because it's totally bitchin'

Ridin' waves to blast the pigeons

And it's so neat shooting skeet...

While you're riding

on the heavies all day

First wave, don't get tired

Second wave, aim higher

Third wave, pull and fire

- Skeet surfin'

- It's all right

Waxin'down our surfboards

And loadin'up our traps

Tell the teacher we're shootin'

We're never comin'back

I've got a gun rack in my Chevy

For when the surf

and the flak get heavy

And we'll have fun with our guns...

Till our lifeguard

takes our ammo away

First wave, don't get tired

Second wave, aim higher

Third wave, pull and fire

- Skeet surfin'

- It's all right

First wave, get the knack

Second wave, pull the trap

Third wave, how's that

- Skeet surfin'

- It's all right

Sharing sunsets

with my favorite girl

When we shoot the curl

we really shoot the curl

First wave, don't get tired

Second wave, aim higher

Third wave, pull and fire

- Skeet surfin'

- It's all right

First wave, get the knack

Second wave, pull the trap

Third wave, how's that

I wish they all could be

double-barrel

Wish they all could be

double-barrel guns

Skeet surfin', can't you see

Do you wanna come along with me

Skeet surfin', can't you see

Do you wanna come along with me

Skeet surfin', it's all right

Little girl

we'll have fun tonight

Skeet surfin', can't you see

Do you wanna come along with me

Grab your board

and run to your gun

A pen.

A pen.

A table.

A table.

The pen is on the table.

There is sauerkraut

in my lederhosen.

Come in.

What did he say?

I think we're at

the East German checkpoint.

Better have our passports ready.

Now remember, Nick,

this is the first time...

rock music has ever been allowed

in this country.

So, you're not just a performer,

you're an ambassador...

representing America.

And above all, remember,

we've got to play by their rules.

Martin, I've been practicing.
