- As the von Trapps are onstage singing, the camera pans over all the uniformed Nazis guarding the festivities.
- They're the only ones not enjoying the program. Guess they teach you not to smile in Nazi school.
- The family finishes "Do-Re-Mi," and Captain von Trapp launches into "Edelweiss."
- He motions for the audience to join in, which they enthusiastically do.
- Except the Nazis. They're definitely not happy about it.
- The captain's overcome with emotion halfway through, since he's singing about his homeland on the very evening he's leaving.
- Maria and the kids come out and help him finish the song.
- Max announces that the von Trapps will do an encore, and that this will be the last time the family will perform together for a while.
- He explains that Captain von Trapp is being called up to serve with the Third Reich, and there are disapproving grumbles.
- As he exits the stage, Max tells the family he thinks the plan will work, and that he'll miss them and the money he could've made off them.
- The entire family performs "So Long, Farewell." Ironic, right?
- Max then comes out to announce the winners of the festival.
- 3rd and 2nd prize are announced, and the winners come out to accept.
- He announces the first prize, which goes to the von Trapps. No one appears.
- He announces it again. Still nobody.
- Instead, a Nazi comes running in and says that the von Trapps are gone.
