Topic: Band of Brothers Quotes

SOBEL: How do intend to kill Germans with a rusty bayonet? Revoked.

TOYE: Hitler gets one of these across the windpipe (brandished knife), Roosevelt changes Thanksgiving to Joe Toye day and pays me $10000 a year for the rest of my life.

TOYE: What does a guy have to do to get killed around here. (By this time he had had two grenades go off in close proximity to him and his leg blown off by a mortar)

WINTERS: There's a German general at the airfield who has a problem surrendering to Pvt. Babe Heffron from South Philly. I think 1st Lt. Carwood Lipton would suit him better.

WINTERS: (gestures towards Nixon's flask) What are you going to do about that when we get in combat.
NIXON: I have faith in my scrounging abilities, but just in case I hid a case of Labatt 67 in your footlocker.

Topic: That is one of the best productions ever.

I dont remmember which of the characters said it but when a GI retreating from the battle of the buldge told them they are probably going to be surounded one of the man said-
"It's allright we are paratroopers, we are soppused to be surounded"

I think it was Winters that said that - that's a good one, I forgot about it.

i found it: the only hope you have is to accept the fact that your already dead, the sooner you accept that , the sooner you'll be able to function as a soldier supose to function without mercy, without compassion. without remorse. all war depends on it

In Bastogne - Episode 6 when Medic Eugene Roe asked Joe Toye what size his boots were (they had been blown off with a direct hit from artillery) and Joe Toye replied "Size 9. Just like everybody else." In the Battle of hte Bulge many were pushing on trenchfoot and frostbite, and didn't even have the right size boots.

LT. Norman Dike: (After being shelled, and possibly awaiting an arrival of Germans, the Company C-O says) "1st Sgt Lipton... you get things organized here, I'm gonna go for help."
This shows how terrible their C-O was at the time, and the Sarge's look on his face after being given his order.

My favorite is after Easy gets done watching the video about the War in the Pacific. Winters tells the other officers that he wants rifle ranges set up, close quarter drills, and most of all physical work outs. And as he is walking away Nixion is like "they are going to love you"

Or when Lt. Spears cracks that guy with his pistol "When you talk to an officer you say sir"

I dont know the exact wording but it is somewhere along these lines:

To Winters: Permission to speak sir

Winters: Go ahead

To Winters: Sir we have # companys here sir

Winters: Yes we do

To Winters: Why is it easy company is the only company that marches # miles in the pitch black

Winters: Why do you think _________

To Winters: Cuz Soeble hates us sir

Winters: Soeble does not hate easy company, he just hates you.
