The After the Original Bunker Scene is a scene sometimes used in Downfall parodies.

In Downfall

After Hitler declared the war lost in the previous scene, he slowly leaves the conference room and walks past a sobbing Gerda. Martin Bormann, who stayed inside the conference room during his ranting, quietly remarks behind Hitler that "the Führer didn't really mean he'd shoot himself."

Perhaps overhearing Bormann, Hitler turns around and tells Traudl and Gerda to get changed, as a plane will be leaving in an hour, taking them South. He then tells everyone that the war is hopelessly lost. Hitler tells Traudl and Gerda that they should leave. Eva Braun grabs Hitler's hands and tells him she would never leave him. Hitler then kisses Eva, to which many people from the room turn their heads away or simply stare without saying a word. Traudl tells Hitler that she'll stay too. Both Hitler and Braun leave the room and retreat to his study room.

Goebbels, the last to leave the conference room, dashes past the crowd into the restroom and stares at the mirror in anger. The Fegelein and Friends scene immediately begins.

In Downfall Parodies

This scene is almost always used along with the Fegelein and Friends scene, with Bormann setting the topic of the succeeding discussion. The part where Hitler talks to the women, on the other hand, is typically cut out.

The part with Goebbels found a separate use. In Skeletor Challenges Günsche to a Race, both this scene and the Hitler Suicide Scene is used to depict Skeletor (Goebbels) having a race with Günsche, and in the second run gets blocked by Bormann. The part where Goebbels looks at himself in the mirror also find use in many other parodies, for example in TheLawlDawg's parody where Goebbels breaks the mirror with his Stare of Doom.
