Mohnke talks to Hitler is a scene in Downfall that is sometimes used in parodies.

In Downfall

Continuing from the previous scene, Wilhelm Mohnke is escorted by Heinz Linge to the Führer's bedroom, who is shown sitting on the side of his bed. Mhonke salutes and Hitler asks him for how much longer they can hold out and Mohnke tells him no more than twenty hours, as the Soviets are less than four hundred meters away. Hitler tells Mohnke that the Western democracies are decadent and that they'll be defeated by the disciplined people from the East. Mohnke is wished all the best by Hitler and leaves. Hitler remains on his bed.

In Downfall Parodies

The scene is not often used in parodies, and never on its own, as there is no ranting.

Hitler Rants Parodies used the scene with Mohnke talking to Hitler in many of his parody series, particularly those that involve warfare, such as Hitler vs Justin Bieber fans, The Jodl Rebellion, and War of The Hitlers. JennieParker87 has also used the scene, for example in her The Last Man parody, in which Hitler talks to Mohnke about his upcoming doom. Or in her Hitler in the Mysterious forest parody, in which Hitler is seen taking a dump on Otto Günsche's bed.

In thenewyorkcitay's Hitler Kidnaps the Goebbels Children, Hitler talks to himself about 'tingling sensations' that he gets when looking at younglings, with Mohnke listening.
