Hot Shots!

Other mistake: When Topper speaks to Ramada for the first time, we can see his name plate read "LT Sean Harley", whereas LT stands for Lieutenant, any army's lowest officer rank. The rank insignia on his collar, though, is that of a Captain (CPT). (00:19:19 - 00:20:09)

Suggested correction: Topper's not in the army, he's in the navy. He has the correct insignia for a naval lieutenant.

Continuity mistake: When Dead Meat has crashed, and Washout's parachute is lying on the road, the ambulance runs over it. In the first shot, the ambulance clearly runs completely over it without catching the parachute at all. In the next shot we see the ambulance hooking the parachute and dragging Washout along the road. (00:42:55)

Topper Harley: My father used to say that not playing to win is like sleeping with your sister. Sure she's a great piece of tail, with a blouse full of goodies, but... It's just illegal. Then you get into that whole inbred thing. Kids with no teeth who do nothing but play the banjo... Eat apple sauce through a straw... Pork farm animals.

Chosen answer: A chafing dish is a large metal pan or glass container (either is called a "dish") that is used to serve hot food at a buffet. The dish fits into an elevated metal stand that has one or more holders on the bottom for small sterno containers. The heat from the lit sterno keeps food warm
