* NoodleIncident: At one point, Pyle is seen walking behind the grunts marching in parade formation, sucking his thumb with his pants around his ankles. Why is never explained (though it might have been a punishment [[{{Jerkass}} Hartman}} meted out on him).

* IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure: After a routine inspection turns up a stolen jelly doughnut in Pvt. Pyle's footlocker, [[DrillSergeantNasty Gunnery Sergeant Hartman,]] comes to the conclusion that reprimanding Pyle will solve nothing. So he announces to the platoon that from that point on, whenever Pyle screws up, everyone else will have to do [=P.T.=] while he just looks at them, in the hopes that this will motivate Pyle into becoming a proper Marine. [[GoneHorriblyRight It works,]] but probably [[SanitySlippage not in the way Hartman intended.]]

* EtTuBrute: During the "blanket party," what really hurts Pyle the most was Joker, whom Pyle looked up to for helping him get his act together, taking extra swings after the other recruits went back to their bunks.


Added DiffLines:

** Joker definitively feels pangs of guilt after taking extra swings at Pyle during the "blanket party."

** Also, Private Pyle swiping ''one'' live round from the firing range, let alone enough for a full clip, would have been next to impossible. The military is very aware that basic training is extremely stressful, and there's no need to add fuel to the fire by allowing recruits to pilfer ammunition. Live rounds are ''only'' given out on the firing range, ''every round IS accounted for;'' i.e. if you're given twenty rounds then there's an instructor standing there watching to make certain you load ''twenty'' rounds and you fire ''twenty'' rounds. That's also the reason for the continual inspections and searches of everything in the barracks, down to the lint in the recruits' pockets. It's not just to teach them attention to detail and adherence to rules, it's to make certain they don't have anything they're not supposed to have, ''like live ammunition.''

** MickeyMouse is referred to at the end of both segments. At the end of the boot camp segment, Gunny Hartman yells "What is this Mickey Mouse shit." At the end of the Vietnam segment, the Marines are singing the theme song to ''TheMickeyMouseClub'' as they march away from the burning city of Hue. Also a FreezeFrameBonus: look toward the background of Lt. Lockhart's office at the right time and guess what you'll see? Figurines of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
