- Die einen studieren. Die anderen werden studiert. (Some study. Some are studied.)
- Prof. Grombek: [first words - as med student works over cadaver bare-handed] Gloves Kaminski, gloves. The lady's a study aid, not Sharon Stone. student hecklers: Yeah, Kaminski instincts are very basic... They're more fun when they're alive. Prof. Grombek: Alright, pipe down. That's enough for this group. Ever seen a drowning victim? Tomorrow's putrefaction day. Paula Henning: Uh, professor? There seems to be some kind of anomaly in the pelvic region. Prof. Grombek: A penis per chance? It's not an anomaly, it's that little boys are created differently than little girls. Can you tell me what it is? Paula Henning: [drops the organ] Slippery is what it is.
- The door that leads to the stainless steel morgue room in the movie actually leads to the cafeteria of Technische Universität München. The movie was screened in the big wooden lecture auditorium seen in the movie, leading to a "picture-in-picture"-effect for the audience.
The models used in the film were inspired by Dr. Gunther von Hagens popular exhibition "Body Works" in which real cadavers are plasticized after being dissected. One character even mentions this process when we see the hall for the first time at the beginning of the film, but no real cadavers were used as the director thought it "too macabre". The models were created by a team headed by Joachim Grüninger and Birger Laube. The models were so accurate and detailed that the film's medical advisers thought they could be used as actual teaching specimens.
In the scene where Hein (Benno Fürmann) tries to hide the corpse of Phil (Holger Speckhahn) there are two assistants appearing. The dark-haired one, who is constantly cursing (Martin Pölcher) actually is now (2006) assistant medical director at the Institute for Gynecology at the University of Bonn, Germany.
