Rudy is eavesdropping on the "coat men" who are quietly talking to Rudy's parents in the kitchen. The coat men are Nazi agents sent to get Rudy to join a special school because of the three gold medals that he won at the Hitler Youth Carnival. The men want to take Rudy away to a special military school that will develop his athletics. Rudy's parents refuse to let him go and later on his father is arrested because of this.
