: Lieutenant Leak. Lt. Leak: Yes Sir. Capt. McMurtry: I'm Captain McMurtry. Welcome to the 308th Lt. Leak: Captain, uh, there must be some mistake. I'm supposed to be in a Texas unit. Most of these boys are from New York and I just don't understand a word these city fellers are sayin'. Capt. McMurtry: You don't have to understand them Lieutenant, they have to understand you. Yoder: Hey, how come you guys from New York call everybody "buddy"? Lipasti: You're not from the city? Yoder: From Bigfork, Montana. Lipasti: Never heard of it. I didn't know they let apple-knockers into this outfit. Krotoshinsky: He [Lipasti] Krotoshinsky: thinks you might want to buy a bridge. Yoder: What bridge? Lipasti: The Brooklyn Bridge. What other bridge is there? What kind of an army is this, we come all the way to France and they stick us with boys from Daisyville. Lt. Leak: Morning Sir. Maj. Whittlesey: We don't salut up here Lieutenant. Lt. Leak: I'm sorry Sir. Maj. Whittlesey: My officers of men shave everyday. Lt. Leak: Oh, I'm sorry Sir. Maj. Whittlesey: You're sorry about a lot of things. Lt. Leak: Well, we got up here kinda late yesterday and... Maj. Whittlesey: Is that and excuse or an explanation? I'm not interested in either on. I want you and your platoon squared away, make sure your men have full rations, plenty of ammo. And wear that uniform properly. Put on dry socks if you have them and straighten your helmet. Oh and Lt. Leak, welcome to the 308th. Cepheglia: This is a French Cho-Cho Rosen: Chauchat Cepheglia: It's a piece of garbage, don't worry about it Rosen: Leave it to Henchman and Hollingshead. Cepheglia: Don't worry about mortars, tanks and artillery. Rosen: We don't have any of that either. Cepheglia: Basically we're mud crunchers, Rosen: gravel agitators, Cepheglia: infantry. Krotoshinsky: Where's the Cowboy going? Lipasti: He must know something. Krotoshinsky: You think so? Lipasti: He's from Roadville, he grew up around trees. You've ever been around trees? Krotoshinsky: They got trees in Union Square. Lipasti: Those don't count. Maj. Prinz:
You Americans, you always have so much of everything. No matter. Eventually you have to surrender.
