The Hitler and Speer Chat Scene is a scene from Downfall sometimes used by Untergangers in parodies.

In Downfall

In this scene, Hitler and Speer sit down on a couch discussing the scorched earth policy. Speer tells Hitler that his proposal to destroy all of Germany's infrastructure and industry will send the country back into the Middle Ages. Hitler however doesn't consider the primitive needs of the people important, quite to the contrary, they should destroy everything themselves. Speer then reminds Hitler that it's his people and that he's the Führer, Hitler replies that what will remain after this battle will be the inferior.

Transcript

German transcript and English translation
Speaker German English
HITLER Wohin immer der Feind vordringt, er soll nur noch eine Wüste vorfinden. Wherever the enemy goes, all they'll find is destruction.
SPEER Das ist das Todesurteil für das deutsche Volk. That's the death sentence for the German people.
Kein Strom, kein Gas, kein sauberes Wasser, keine Kohle, kein Verkehr. No power, no gas, no clean water, no coal, no transportation.
Alle Bahnanlagen, Kanäle, Docks, Schleusen, Schiffe, Lokomotiven, all das zu zerstören, würde unser Land zurückschleudern ins Mittelalter! All railways, canals, docks, locks, ships, locomotives, destroying all that would hurl our country back to medieval times!
Mit diesem Befehl rauben Sie dem Volk jegliche Überlebenschance. With this command you deprive the people any chance of survival.
HITLER Wenn der Krieg verloren geht, ist es vollkommen wurscht, wenn auch das Volk verloren geht. If the war is lost, it is completely irrelevant if the people is lost.
Es ist nicht notwendig auf die Grundlagen, die das deutsche Volk zu seinen primitivsten Weiterleben braucht, Rücksicht zu nehmen, im Gegenteil, es ist besser, diese Dinge selbst zu zerstören. The German people's primary needs of life aren't important right now. On the contrary, we'd do best to destroy them ourselves.
Denn das Volk hat sich als das Schwächere erwiesen, und es ist nur ein Naturgesetz, dass es daneben ausgerottet wird! Our people proved to be weak, and according to the laws of nature, they should die out!
SPEER Es ist Ihr Volk! They're your people!
Sie sind der Führer! You're the Führer!
HITLER Was nach diesem Kampf übrig bleibt, sind ohnehin nur die Minderwertigen, denn die Guten sind gefallen! What remains after this battle is only the inferior, for the superior have fallen.
