Peter returns home is a scene in the extended edition of Downfall that is rarely used in parodies.
Wilhelm Kranz is sitting on the stairs outside of his apartment waiting for his son, Peter Kranz, to return. Peter, tired after a long walk, embraces his father while still in tears over his killing of the Russian soldier. Wilhelm tells Peter that everything is alright. Peter lying in bed, visibly sweaty, is tended to by his mother Dorothee Kranz. Dorothee looks up at Wilhelm, and says that Peter has a fever, to which Wilhelm replies with relief, "Yes, but he is alive".
