September 13, 1944, Aldbourne, England

Luz: "Alright now, lieutenant, nice and easy. We still got a shot."

Luz: "Tough break. You're having a tough night. People have tough nights."

Buck: "Sorry, George."

Luz: "It's alright."

Bull: "Nice shot, sir."

Buck: "Thank you, Bull."

Buck: "Heffron."

Babe: "Thank you, lieutenant."

Toye: "Go on, Heff, shoot them out."

Buck: "Finish me up."

Toye: "See this."

Luz: "What does he need?"

Babe: "Double seven."

Luz: "Here we go."

Guarnere: "You're embarrassing the lieutenant. Here, have a drink."

Babe: "Don't mind if I do, sarge."

Guarnere: "Better start winning money soon, I think your buddies are starting to miss you."

Babe: "Yeah, they do look kinda sad, don't they."

Bull: "They're just serious fighting men, that's all."

Guarnere: "Well, I think I'm gonna go introduce myself."

Bull: "Be careful what you say now. Don't take much to set my guys off."

Martin: "Yeah, you got some wide-eyed killers right there, Bull."

Buck: "You know, it's a good thing we weren't gambling."

Luz: "Oh boy, we would've gotten killed!"

Babe: "You wanna bet?"

Luz: "What?"

Babe: "You wanna bet?"

Toye: "Pack of smokes."

Buck: "I'm not much of a gambler..."

Toye: "Pack of smokes! Come on."

Babe: "Hey, come on."

Buck: "First one to hit the bull's-eye?"

Babe: "Yeah, give it one shot. One shot."

Buck: "First one to hit the bull's-eye? One shot?"

Luz: "Yeah, why not."

Babe: "Yeah?"

Buck: "Make it two."

Luz: "Two packs."

Babe: "Two packs, alright."

Buck: "Alright, here we go. One shot. Here we go, George."

Guarnere: "Hey, fellas. What do you hear? What do you say?"

Hashey: "Uh, actually that's Babe's seat. Private Heffron's."

Guarnere: "Is that right? I don't care if it's fucking Eisenhower's."

Guarnere: "Who are you?"

Miller: "Private Miller. James Miller. I'm in Sergeant Randleman's squad."

Hashey: "Us too. I'm Les Hashey."

Garcia: "Tony-"

Guarnere: "Garcia. I know who you are. Old Gonorrhea don't miss nothing."

Luz: "Lieutenant, are you gonna shoot lefty all night?"

Toye: "Hey, come on."

Luz: "Just curious 'cause he's right-handed."

Buck: "George. What would I do without George Luz?"

Luz: "Boop."

Luz: "Goodness gracious!"

Buck: "Two packs, gentlemen!"

Luz: "I know you got them, pay up."

Guarnere: "So, Heffron tell you about Doris yet?"

Hashey: "No."

Guarnere: "No? Well, then I'm gonna educate you."

Guarnere: "We're getting ready to get on the plane for that first ???-town we never jumped into. All of a sudden, Heffron stops dead in his tracks. Bing and a bang and
a boom, everybody's banging into each other and everything. Heffron's just staring up at the nose of the plane, because on it, is painted this beautiful pin-up. Written
underneath: 'Darling Doris'. Doris just happens to be the name of the skirt, who just that day sent Babe one of them letters. You know the--- Web, what do you call
them letters that the broads send?"

Webster: "Dear John letter."

Guarnere: "That's it. A 'Dear Babe' letter."

Guarnere: "Anyway, lucky for Babe, Patton overruns our drop zone. Mission canceled. In other words, Babe don't have to risk getting inside old Doris again."

Guarnere: "Hey, Bull, your squad listenes up real good."

Martin: "Yeah, they're being polite, like whenever Bull opens his mouth."

Guarnere: "Johnny, what are you saying? Bull's boys are just humoring him?"

Martin: "Yeah, like whenever he gives out some of his folksy wisdom from back down in the farm."

Guarnere: "Probably think he's a fucking hayseed. Ain't that right?"

Martin: "What are you laughing at?"

Guarnere: "You new boys, you pay attention to Sergeant Randleman. Got that?"

Guarnere: "That's the smartest man in the company."

Cobb: "Where'd you get that?"

Miller: "It's the Presidential Distinguished Unit Citation. For uh-- For what the regiment did in Normandy."

Cobb: "That's right. For what the regiment did. You weren't there."

Hoobler: "Hey, hey, ease up, Cobb. It's a unit citation."

Bull: "Shit, Cobb. You didn't fight in Normandy, neither."

Cobb: "I got hit in the plane before I got a chance to jump."

Smokey: "Hey, ya all! Listen up! I got us an announcement to make."

Smokey: "This here is Carwood Lipton."

Malarkey: "He's already married, Smokey."

Smokey: "This here is Carwood Lipton, the new Easy Company first sergeant!"

Dukeman: "Go Carwood!"

Smokey: "As befitting his position, he says he has to make an announcement."

Lipton: "Well, I hate to break the mood here, boys, but we're moving out again."


Winters: "As you can see, this is called Operation Market Garden. In turns of airborne divisions, this one's even bigger than Normandy. We're dropping deep into occupied Holland."

Winters: "The Allied objective is to take this road here, between Eindhoven and Arnhem, so the two British armored divisions can move up it toward Arnhem."

Winters: "Our job is gonna be to liberate Eindhoven, stay there, wait for the tanks."

Nixon: "The entire European advance has been put on hold to allocate resources for this operation. It's Montgomery's personal plan, we'll be under British command."

Nixon: "The good news is, if this works, these tanks will be over the Rhine and into Germany. That could end the war and get us home by Christmas."

Nixon: "It'll be a daytime job, intelligence doesn't expect much opposition. They think the Krauts in Holland are mostly kids and old men. And we should take them
by surprise."

Nixon: "In any case, say goodbye to England, I don't think they're gonna call this one off."


Garcia: "What are you doing?"

Miller: "Look at Cobb, man."

Cobb: "Watch and learn, kids. If you wanna live, jump ready to fight."

Lipton: "Who let you out of the hospital like that, boy?"

Popeye: "They didn't let me out, I busted out. I didn't wanna get reassigned to some other unit."

Lipton: "Yeah? Can you make the jump?"

Popeye: "Sure I can, Lip. I just can't sit."

Bull: "Welcome back, Popeye."

Popeye: "Thanks, Bull."

Lipton: "Popeye went AWOL just in time to jump."

Bull: "What's he doing here?"

Lipton: "Who, Sobel? Well he's the newly appointed regimental S-4."

Bull: "Supply officer?"

Lipton: "Yeah, you got it."

Popeye: "He picked me up in Aldbourne, trying to find you guys."

Bull: "He know you went AWOL?"

Popeye: "He knows. He just said I was lucky. I could sit out this jump if I wanted. I said I didn't want to. So he says 'Hop in.'."

Bull: "Hop in?"

Popeye: "Yeah, I know. I couldn't believe it either. Anyway, maybe he's gonna court-martial me later."

Lipton: "Let's get you some gear."

More: "Hey, Mal, over there."

Malarkey: "Son of a bitch."

Sobel: "Malarkey."

Sobel: "Sergeant Malarkey."

Malarkey: "Sir."

Sobel: "You thought you'd get away with it?"

Malarkey: "What do you mean, sir?"

Sobel: "Sergeant, that motorcycle is U.S. Army property. That may not mean anything to you, but it means something to me."

Sobel: "Where'd you find it?"

Bull: "That's him, all right."

Hashey: "Who is he, sarge?"

Bull: "He's our first C.O."

Hashey: "What happened?"

Bull: "He got promoted."

Peacock: "Just tap my leg, sergeant."

Martin: "Lieutenant, you'll be in the doorway."

Peacock: "Yeah, I know. But, look, sergeant, you'll be the man behind me. When the green light comes on, you could just tap me, all right?"

Martin: "The green light will be next to you, sir."

Peacock: "Just do it! That's an order."

Bull: "Come here, come here. Sling it up and down. When you hit the ground, your knee'll hit the buck, the pieces under'll break your jaw. All right, lose your reserve, you won't need it, we're jumping low. Take your belly ??? and wrap it around you. You're fine."


September 17, 1944, Holland

Hashey: "Come on."

Hashey: "I'm sorry, sergeant."

Bull: "Don't be sorry. Grab your rifle, let's go!"

Cobb: "Where'd you get that from, Hoobler?"

Hoobler: "I think I love Holland."

Hashey: "Where'd you get these?"

Hoobler: "That farmhouse over there. Just sitting out in the open. I don't know, maybe they were expecting us."

Webster: "Hello, boys."

Webster: "I made it!"

Hoobler: "I wonder if they hit anything."

Webster: "Goodbye air support."

Peacock: "There's some kind of holdup ahead. We're going in through this field here."

Anonymous soldier: "Move out! Able Company, let's go! Let's go! Move it! Move it!"

Bull: "You won't be able to shoot as straight with that thing (bayonet) on."

Bull: "Okay, hold your fire."


Eindhoven, Holland

Hoobler: "Hey, kid!"

Lipton: "Bull! Bull, have you seen Capt. Winters?"

Bull: "No, why?"

Lipton: "Keep your squad moving."

Miller: "Where are all the Germans?"

Garcia: "They could be anywhere."

Peacock: "Keep moving! Keep moving!"

Lipton: "Pardon me."

Cobb: "Come on, lady!"

Nixon: "Dick, clock's ticking."

Winters: "Yeah."

Nixon: "Thank you, thank you. Dank you, dank you. Very kind of you."

Winters: "What's up, Welshy?"

Welsh: "Snipers."

Winters: "We gotta get to these bridges."

Bull: "All right. Hashey."

Babe: "Hey, watch this!"

Perconte: "Watch the camera."

Peacock: "Sergeant Talbert, let's move! We've got work to do."

Welsh: "What did they do?"

Van Kooijk: "They slept with the Germans."

Van Kooijk: "They are lucky. The men who collaborated are being shot."

Nixon: "Mr. van Kooijk here is with the Dutch Resistance."

van Kooijk: "We've been waiting and hoping for this day for almost five years."

Nixon: "He says he can help us secure the bridges here."

Van Kooijk: "Yes, together we can push the remaining Germans out of Eindhoven. And that's just the beginning."

Winters: "Any idea where they might be?"

Nixon: "Well, we're still working on that right now."

Van Kooijk: "Pers and his friends here are gathering information as we speak."

Nixon: "His contacts a couple of towns down say they saw a British 2nd and Guards Armored move through half an hour ago."

Winters: "They're kids."

Van Kooijk: "These are reliable reports. Anything we can do to help you, we will do. Anything."

Van Kooijk: "Right on time."

Van Kooijk: "Captain. I'll be happy to show you the quickest route to the bridges."

Winters: "I'd be happy to have your help."

Winters: "Get scouts to the edge of town in case we're here for the night."


Hoobler: "Hey, van Klinken. Webster. Sleeping outside is for suckers, guys."

Webster: "This better be good, I was almost asleep."

Webster: "Raus! Hände hoch! Mach schnell!" [Get out! Hands up! Buck up!]

Dutch man: "Niederländer! Niederländer!" [Dutchman! Dutchman!]

Webster: "Sprechen Sie Englisch?" [Do you speak English?]

Dutch man: "Ja. A little bit."

Hoobler: "What were you doing down there?"

Dutch man: "It's an air-raid shelter. My family has been in there ever since the first plane flew over."

Van Klinken: "We're Americans. Paratroopers."

Dutch man: "The Germans? Are gone?"

Hoobler: "Think so. You see any, you let us know."

Dutch man: "Are you here to stay?"

Van Klinken: "As long as we have to."

Webster: "Yeah, they don't tell us very much."

Hoobler: "Or feed us much."

Dutch man: "Please, wait here."

Van Klinken: "You see that? I say screw Paris."

Hoobler: "Hey, don't talk about screwing, all right?"

Webster: "They all speak English, they all love us. What a fantastic country."

Hoobler: "Hey, take a look."

Dutch man: "Here, take."

Webster: "Danke."

Dutch man: "Here."

Webster: "Are these olives?"

Hoobler: "Thanks. Danke."

Hoobler: "Zigaretten?"

Dutch man: "Yeah."

Dutch man: "He never tasted chocolate."

Webster: "It's pretty good, isn't it?"


Bull: "Oh man! You know, I hate eggs!"

Van Klinken: "Here, sarge, you can have this one!"

Webster: "Vincent van Gogh was born in Nuenen!"

Cobb: "Yeah? So what?"

Hoobler: "Sure teach you a lot of useful stuff at Harvard."

Hashey: "Mellet!"

Bull: "Take the right side."

Hoobler: "Right."

Hoobler: "Go on."

Hashey: "Kraut! Shit!"

Bull: "Move! Goddamn it, move! Go! Come on! Come on!"

Dutch man: "Away! Away!"

Anonymous soldier: "What's he saying?"

Webster: "He said 'Away! Away!', which either means that the Germans are gone or he wants us to go. I don't know."

Guarnere: "Go! Go!"

Martin: "Ramirez!"

Buck: "Beat it! All right, fellas, set them up!"

Martin: "Tiger. Shit."

Martin: "Heffron! On me!"

Martin: "You got a can-opener, Babe?"

Babe: "Afraid I don't, sarge!"

Martin: "We've got a Kraut-tank, 100 yards on the left part of that haystack!"

Tank driver: "I don't see him."

Martin: "Put a couple of shells through that building and you're gonna see it real good!"

Tank driver: "I can't. My orders are no unnecessary destruction of property."

Martin: "I'm telling you it's right there!"

Tank driver: "I believe you, but if I can't see the bugger, I can't bloody well shoot him, can I?"

Tank driver: "Are you staying or going?"

Martin: "He's gonna see you real soon!"

Bull: "What the hell's he doing?"

Tank driver: "Forward!"

Bull: "Fall back!"

Anonymous soldier: "Fall back! Fall back!"

Hoobler: "Shit!"

Grant: "Okay, ready!"

Guarnere: "Fall back! Fall back! Fall back!"

Buck: "Pull back! Pull back! Alley, pull back!"

Buck: "Go! Pull back!"

Hoobler: "Webster! Take over!"

Webster: "Yeah, where?"

Roe: "We have to get him to the rear!"

Hoobler: "What are we gonna do, lieutenant?!"

Peacock: "I'm not sure!"

Hoobler: "sir, they're about to outflank us! We gotta get outta here!"

Anonymous soldier: "Mortar!"

Luz: "---cut the road! We have infantry everywhere! Repeat: armor has cut the road! We are covered in infantry!"

Luz: "We are pulling back!"

Buck: "Just go and leave me here for the Germans."

Malarkey: "What? Are you nuts?"

Roe: "We'll carry you!"

Buck: "You kidding me? I weigh more than both you guys combined."

Malarkey: "Help us!"

Anonymous soldier: "Get back to the tanks! Germans are coming up on the other side!"

Anonymous soldier: "Keep moving, keep low!"

Guarnere: "Lip, I don't think we know where Bull is."

Winters: "Keep it moving, sergeant."

Winters: "Let's go! Let's go! Keep moving! Keep moving!"

Winters: "Hurry up! Let's go!"

Nixon: "How bad?"

Winters: "I don't know yet."

Winters: "Nix!"

Nixon: "I'm all right! I'm all right! Am I all right?"

Winters: "Yeah. Yeah, you feel all right?"

Nixon: "Yeah! Quit looking at me like that!"

Garcia: "What we're doing next."

Hoobler: "Nope."

Hoobler: "I did hear one thing. Lt. Brewer's gonna make it."

Cobb: "What?"

Hoobler: "Lt. Brewer's gonna make it!"

Cobb: "Nah, there's no way."

Hoobler: "Sent him back to England. They'll probably send him home."

Webster: "How is that possible?"

Garcia: "He did turn his head at the last second. When Sgt. Randleman called out to him."


Dutch man: "Kijken?" (to Bull) [Look?]

Dutch man: "Here." (booze)

Bull: "No."

Bull: "Just pull---fuck. Just pull it out."

Bull: "Come on! Okay."

Dutch man: "Here." (gives back the knife) "Danke! Danke!"

German soldier: "Hallo? Hallo? Ist da jemand?" [Is someone there?]

German soldier: "Ist da jemand? Hallo?"

German soldier: "Hände hoch! Komm hände hoch und komm raus und passieren nichts!" [Come out with your hands up]


Guarnere: "Hoob, any news on Bull yet?"

Guarnere: "If there ain't no body, then there ain't nobody fucking dead! Understand me?"

Hoobler: "I'm gonna look for him."

Guarnere: "Not by yourself you're not, I'll go with you. Let me get some ammo."

Hashey: "That's okay. I'll go."

Garcia: "Me too."

Guarnere: "All right. Go get him."

Hoobler: "Where the fuck you been?"

Bull: "Glad to see you, boys."

Cobb: "Not as glad as us. Bet you thought we'd given up on you there, huh, boss?"

Hashey: "Shut up, Cobb."

Cobb: "What?"

Webster: "I think we should go back now."

Dukeman: "Hey, Johnny, look."

Martin: "Bull!"

Bull: "Hey, Johnny."

Martin: "Get a little lost?"

Bull: "Something like that."

Martin: "It's good to see you."

Bull: "You too."

Guarnee: "I don't know wheter to slap you or kiss you or salute you. I told these scallywags you was okay."

Bull: "They didn't listen?"

Guarnere: "Nah, these salted bastards, they wanted to go on a suicide run to drag your ass back."

Bull: "Is that right?"

Guarnere: "Yeah, I told them don't bother."

Bull: "Never did like this company none."

Guarnere: "So, they found you?"

Martin: "Wait, what did you say?"

Guarnere: "Johnny, don't irrigate me."

Martin: "'They found you?'. Now I don't know who's more stupid, you or the hick."

Lipton: "All right! Mount up! Up, up! Let's move out!"

Guarnere: "2nd Platoon! Grab your gear! Let's go!"

Martin: "1st Platoon!"

Bull: "2nd squad, fall in now! Come on! Move it!"

Nixon: "The Germans are concentrating their armor up near Veghel. We may be heading into more tanks."

Winters: "Well, as long as there's only old men and kids."

Nixon: "Yeah."

Winters: "I don't like retreating."

Nixon: "First time for everything."

Winters: "How are the other divisions faring up North?"

Nixon: "I think we're gonna have to find another way to Germany."
