Replacements - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Bull is wounded and crawling through the trench to avoid being run over by the tank, he looks back after the telephone pole comes down and you can see the camera crew in the upper right corner.

Replacements - S1-E4

Other mistake: When Heffron is taking his throw at darts, he states that he needs a "double seven". When he takes the throw, the dart goes into the treble eight (an earlier close-up confirms that the board has the standard Gamlin configuration), yet, from the reaction he gets, he's made the throw he was going for.

Replacements - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In the shot before Buck falls back he fires twice. The first time it's ok, the second time the cocking bolt on the side of his Thompson doesn't move.

Replacements - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In one scene, the barn-like structure ‘petit restaurant' has the words 'hotel' on the left and 'cafe' on the right, but the building gets a grenade to the upper floor to clear the two snipers pinning down Easy Company. After the retreat, the Germans march past and the Hotel/Cafe is fully restored and the window is back in place.

Guarnere: Jesus Christ, we gotta do all this with a C.O. who has his head so far up his fuckin' ass, that lump in his throat is his goddamn nose.

Trivia: 40 members of the cast had to go through a ten day bootcamp in which they were called by their roles in the series. Their boot camp instructor, Captain Dale Dye, was also in charge of doing the bootcamp for the main cast of Saving Private Ryan. Dye played the role of Colonel Robert Sink in the series, and a Colonel in the war department in the film. Dale Dye has also starred in, and been a military advisor on many other TV series and films for years, he's an extremely well respected man in the film industry.

Answer: To mess with him. A lot of the "regular" soldiers didn't respect or even like Webster early on because he was a college boy. That dislike and lack of respect was deepened when Webster took what they perceived to be an extended stay in hospital after being wounded when many of their other comrades - Popeye for example - left hospital early to get back with their friends to fight.
