Correction: Webster understands the baker perfectly, he just doesn't particularly care about any excuses that the man might have. The other soldier is trying to get Webster to back off by emphasizing what the baker is saying to him.

The Patrol - S1-E8

Corrected entry: During the "prisoner snatch" patrol, as the American soldiers are preparing to cross the river with the German prisoners, a firefight ensues. Immediately after Lt. Jones picks up the whistle off the ground, someone is heard yelling, "Go!" and a bit more which I was unable to understand. It sounds a lot like Tom Hanks, whose voice is quite distinguishable. None of the other soldiers on that particular patrol had that voice.

Correction: I looked at the scene and while it does sound very much like Tom Hanks there is no way to know conclusively this is Tom Hanks. The reason I think it sounds familiar is the actor that says Go is none other than Tom Hanks' son Colin Hanks, who sounds somewhat similar to his father.

The Patrol - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Webster reports back to Easy Company, he asks about Sgt. Malarkey. Someone tells him that Malarkey was being made a Lieutenant and that he's on the "fast track." However, Sgt. Lipton was the noncom promoted to Second Lieutenant. Malarkey remained a sergeant.

Correction: That was part of the plot - not a mistake. It plays out later when Lt. Jones sees Malarky and congratulates him for the promotion. Malarky comments that he must mean Lipton.

Correction: Try watching a bit closer. In practically the next scene, Lt Jones congratulates Malarkey on his promotion, only to be corrected. Clearly an example of a character mistake, and an intentionally scripted one at that.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Easy is paddling across the river to aid the British soldiers, there is a shot where the person closest to the camera (Bull Randleman) appears to be rowing, but there is nothing in his hands.

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.

More quotes from Band of Brothers

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.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Question: How exactly do the M1 Garands work? I noticed that after the clip is emptied a metal type plate comes out the top of the rifle, what is that?

Answer: That actually is the clip. It is loaded into the top of the rifle, and is ejected with the last round. See http://www.wwiitech.net/main/usa/weapons/m1/.
